California’s Top Rated Local® Computer IT Service Award Winner: Quality Plus Computer

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Quality Plus Computer is a 2019 award winner for computer IT service providers in California!

From virus removal to data recovery, Quality Plus Computer in Chino Hills has what it takes to meet all of your computer repair needs.

Quality Plus Computer has received hundreds of reviews on four verified sites with an average rating of 4.97 stars, earning them a spectacular Rating Score™ of 92.86 and a 2019 Top Rated Local award for ranking among the top 10 computer IT service providers in all of California!

Here’s just one of their many five-star reviews:

“The screen display on my HP Pavilion dv4-2160us laptop went out of service. They had it replaced within less than an hour after I brought it in at 4:45 pm on the same day. The management and technicians of Quality Plus are always responsive to my needs. I have been a customer for three service incidents, and plan to use them in the future. Best Buy’s Geek Squad charges way too much. I recommend that you try them for your next service needs. They are very honest and charge you a fair price — way, way lower than what others will charge you.” – A.M.

Not Your Average Computer Repair Company

Peter, the Store Manager and owner of Quality Plus Computer, generously gave us a few minutes of his time to tell us about his one-of-a-kind business and its impressive online reputation.

The first question we had for Peter was what is it that sets Quality Plus Computer apart from their competition in California. Here’s his response:

“We focus on quality over quantity. Our business is extremely busy. Some of our services are very time consuming, so we do not take on more than we can handle to make sure [that our] customers get the best service.”

Peter went on to say:

“The future of technology is constantly changing. We do not know what the computer industry will look like in five to 10 years. Our business started in 1991, and we will continue to support our customers as technology advances.”

We also wanted to know what their mission is at Quality Plus Computer and how they work to make the world a better place. Peter shared with us that he started the business with the goal of being a good human being — not making money — and went on to say:

“We are about the details. [We aim to] earn trust with customers. It’s about integrity; we do not lie to them.”

Building Success by Offering the Best Service

Peter attributes Quality Plus Computer’s strong online reputation to the fact that they provide the very best service each and every day:

“We offer the best service we can to every customer and strive to leave them satisfied when our work is complete. We take pride in our reviews and know they reflect our company.”

Outside of building a powerful online reputation, Quality Plus Computer has gotten their name out there by staying loyal to their customers and provide all customers — new and old — with the same quality of service. He added:

“I am very fortunate; my first credit goes to God. I am a Christian. I am a dedicated church member and have been at the same church from the beginning.”

There are so many business owners who would love to build the kind of online reputation Quality Plus Computer has. Here’s Peter’s expert advice for them:

“Do not be afraid to take chances on the business; I support our work by allowing customers who are not satisfied to have their money back. Treat people the way they like to be treated.
Customers feel comfortable with us; they know they can always get the services they need.”


Congratulations to the team at Quality Plus Computer for being a 2018 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Peter, for taking the time to speak with us!

We highly recommend Quality Plus Computer in Chino Hills. Visit their website today!

“Amazing! Cristina and her team at CC Vintage Rentals did a FANTASTIC job. I sent them a photo of a freestanding doorway that I had seen on Pinterest, and not only did they work closely with me to figure out exactly what I wanted, they CUSTOM-BUILT the doorway for me at an amazing price. The doors were from a 30-year old barn in Washington State, which was so cool to share with our guests. They also tracked down some additional decor that I had trouble finding and kindly offered to pick those items up at a later date. Cristina was so kind, helpful, professional and, most of all, she was super responsive, which is something I can’t say about the nine or 10 other rental companies I called looking for these particular items. CC Vintage Rental is the best, and for a destination bride, it’s a dream come true. Thank you so much!” – Missi R.

Not Your Average Rentals Business

In order to learn more about this award-winning business and the incredible online reputation they’ve managed to build, we spoke with Cristina Cadden, owner of CC Vintage Rentals.

The first question we had for Cristina was what sets CC Vintage Rentals apart from their competition in California. Here’s her response:

“We focus more on the customer service side than other rental companies do. We make sure everything is planned and organized, and give you top-quality service.”

We also wanted to know what their mission is at CC Vintage Rentals and how they work to make the world a better place. Here’s what Cristina had to say:

“We focus on each couple — we want to make their special day better.”

Building Success by Asking for Feedback.

Cristina credits CC Vintage Rentals’ strong online reputation to the fact that their clients are responsive when they send over requests for reviews.

Outside of building a strong online reputation, word of mouth has been the name of the game for growth at CC Vintage Rentals, and they also get their name out there by doing events for nonprofits.

As evidenced by CC Vintage Rentals’ success and impressive online reputation, Cristina knows a thing or two about how to grow a business and build an online reputation. Here’s her advice for the many other business owners out there working to do the same thing:

“Make sure you are focused on the customer service and on giving the clients quality products, on responding quickly and that the expectations you give out are always met.”

“After meeting with Josephine only a couple times, I have seen a significant change that I have been looking for for a long time. For many years I tried to tackle PTSD alone but I am so glad I finally reached out for support. For a while, I was unsure if anyone could help me get past the things I have experienced but Josephine has been such an amazing person to share my journey with and I couldn’t have asked for a better helping hand. She knows exactly what to ask and is able to help me find different ways to clear the trauma from my mind. I am beyond thankful for her. If you come across Josephine, don’t hesitate to see her.. she truly has changed my life in just a small amount of time.” – Alicia M

Building Success Through Passion

“I feel being a therapist is my calling, it is my mission in life. I feel I am gifted to understand human suffering on a deeper level. I want to ease people from pain and suffering as much as I can. I have never thought of retiring from doing therapy. I will continue to do research on my techniques and pass them onto other therapists.”

Josephine speaks so highly of her work and her clients and finds great joy in being able to help others. On this subject, Josephine says:

“It is always rewarding to see the clients transforming expressions from sadness to joy and relief after I do my treatment interventions. I know they want to share their wonderful therapy transformation for a new life with others while they are sharing with me their gratefulness of having me as their therapists. They are willing to share their discovery of a new life on the internet which I strongly believe is the best way for prospective clients to know that I am available to help them build a balance in life.”

This dedication is made clear by the overwhelming number of positive reviews L. Josephine Cheung, LCSW has received.

Making the World a Better Place By Developing and Sharing

In addition to all of the work Josephine has already done, she is also hard at work thinking ahead to the what new treatments she can offer in the future:

From the pavers to the landscaping, stone wrap, water feature and the lighting, everything looks absolutely beautiful. David is great to work with and has a lot of patience for someone like me. Luis and all of his crew were hard working and are all about the detail and finished project. Everyone was a pleasure to work with and did an amazing job. They definitely know what they are doing and it shows in the end. Neighbors in our new housing all say I have the best backyard of everyone. Do not hesitate to use AAA Landscape Specialists.” -Kathy C.

Not Your Average Landscaping Company

Our team spoke with David Silver, the owner of AAA Landscape Specialists, about his business’ online reputation and success.

Of course, we were particularly interested in finding out what it is that elevates AAA Landscape Specialists above their competition. According to David, the key difference is his team’s ability to provide service with integrity. “We communicate effectively and set realistic expectations. We do everything the right way and we are flexible. We are honest, transparent and upfront with all of our clients. As someone once said, ‘Under promise, over deliver and every client will be happy’ which is why setting expectations is so important,” he said. “Whenever a client makes a decision to hire us, they feel good about that decision. When they write the last check they feel as good or better about their decision to hire us. We keep our clients very happy, at the end of the project they feel like they have truly been taken care of. And of course addressing any concerns, doing everything the right way and being flexible with open communication. It makes a big difference that we listen to our clients’ ideas. Whether the project is going perfect or has a hiccup, we communicate openly the whole way.”

Building Success Through Honesty, Flexibility, and Communication

As an award-winning business owner, David knows a thing or two about what it takes to build and maintain an excellent online reputation. We asked him what words of wisdom he had to share with other business owners. Here’s what he had to say:

“Don’t cut corners, be honest, address concerns and resolve problems. How do you handle things when it’s not perfect and when things go wrong? Know how to handle any situation if anything goes wrong. Flexibility is really important, communicate with your customers. They have to be able to talk with you openly and comfortably, just like any good relationship.”


Congratulations to the team at AAA Landscape Specialists for being a 2018 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, David, for taking the time to speak with us!
