Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Dechtman Wealth Management is a 2019 award winner for financial advisers in Colorado!

From financial planning to estate planning, you won’t find a more professional financial advisory firm to work with than Dechtman Wealth Management.

Dechtman Wealth Management has received dozens of reviews on multiple verified sites with an average rating of 4.75 stars, earning them a magnificent Rating Score™ of 91.50 and a 2019 Top Rated Local award for ranking among the top five financial advisers in all of Colorado!

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

“Our experience with Dechtman Wealth Management has always been very good. They are helpful with any questions, as well as patient with us, regarding our decisions. They are good about keeping in touch and good with helpful updates which is especially reassuring when things change so quickly. The seminars are helpful, too; just to know what they are thinking about the current trends.” – Terry S.

A One-of-a-Kind Financial Advisory Firm’s Secret to a Strong Online Reputation

Dechtman Wealth Management has managed to build the kind of reputation any business owner would envy, and to learn a little more about that reputation and this one-of-a-kind business, we sat down with the owner, Adam Dechtman.

The first thing we wanted to know was what makes Dechtman Wealth Management unique compared to the many other financial advisory firms in Colorado. Adam told us:

“Dechtman Wealth Management is an independent, family-owned financial advisory business that provides the resources and expertise of a large firm while providing first-class service and personal attention. As fiduciary advisors, we act in our clients’ best interests and hold ourselves to a higher standard of care.”

Adam went on to add:

“Dechtman Wealth Management provides comprehensive wealth management, financial planning, tax planning and estate planning. Our comprehensive services include investment management, retirement income planning, tax-reduction strategies, Social Security benefit analysis, Medicare planning, college planning and much more. Whether someone is a retiree or pre-retiree, a business owner, receiving an inheritance or going through a life transition, we help them gain clarity, control and confidence in their financial future.”

Making the World a Better Place by Giving Back

We also wanted to know what their mission is at Dechtman Wealth Management and how they work to make the world a better place. Here’s Adam’s response:

“Since the company’s founding in 1984, giving back to our clients and the community has been the cornerstone of our values. My journey to becoming a wealth advisor started when I was 18 years old after my father passed away unexpectedly. I saw the struggles my mother dealt with while trying to manage the family’s finances, and it was during this difficult period that I knew my passion in life was to help people gain clarity, control and confidence in their financial decisions.”

Outside of building a powerful online reputation, Dechtman Wealth Management has grown by hosting educational programs and fun client events for their clients, as well as their friends and family.

It’s clear that Adam knows a thing or two about growing a business and building an online reputation. Here’s his expert advice for the many other business owners out there:

“Abide by the Golden Rule — treat others how you would like to be treated.”

Adam ended our conversation with this sentiment:

“At Dechtman Wealth Management, we believe in a client-first approach. Why? Because it’s the most meaningful way to serve our clients. Come see what the Dechtman difference is all about!”


Congratulations to the team at Dechtman Wealth Management for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner!

Colorado’s Top Rated Local® Massage Therapists Award Winner: BodyWiRX LLC

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that BodyWiRX LLC is an award winner for massage therapists in Colorado for the second year in a row!

If you’re looking for a massage therapist who will give you the personal attention they deserve, look no further than BodyWiRX LLC in Aurora.

BodyWiRX LLC has received dozens of reviews on five verified sites with an average rating of 4.84 stars, earning them a phenomenal Rating Score™ of 100.00 and two 2019 Top Rated Local awards for ranking among the top 100 businesses and the top five massage therapists in all of Colorado!

Here’s one of the many five-star reviews that got them there:

“Rebecca has got to be the most KNOWLEDGEABLE, EFFECTIVE and CARING therapist I have ever been to! I suffer from severe chronic pain, including fibromyalgia, pots, slipped discs and a few other ailments. Her intake and assessment were very thorough, and she quickly was able to identify multiple muscle groups that have been neglected and were increasing my pain. I cannot wait to go back in two weeks and move closer to health with her support. Thank you, Rebecca!” – Corinne W.

Maintaining a Strong Online Reputation by Focusing on the Customer Experience

We wanted to learn all about BodyWiRX LLC and what they’ve been up to since they won a Top Rated Local award for being ranked among the top five massage therapists in 2018, so we took a few minutes to talk with the owner, Rebecca.

It was clear from BodyWiRX LLC’s 2018 Top Rated Local award that they know a thing or two about building a strong online reputation, and their 2019 Top Rated Local award is evidence that they also know how to maintain their reputation. When we asked Rebecca what they’ve done to continue to get such great feedback, she pointed to their locality and the convenience they offer by accepting walk-ins. Rebecca tries not to overdo it so that she doesn’t burn out, and she never schedules more than six hours of massages in a single day.

Rebecca went on to tell us that she has a background in fitness and knowledge of medical massage, and her main goal is to help people feel better and relax.

We also asked Rebecca what it is that makes BodyWiRX LLC stand out, and she said:

“This industry is filled with tons of massage therapists. I have two or three clients that have been coming for 13 years.”

Small businesses go through many ups and downs over the years, and we wanted to know what lessons BodyWiRX LLC has learned over the last year, as well as what their biggest achievements are. Rebecca told us that she’s learned to say goodbye to clients when they move away or are no longer a good fit, and she told us that her biggest accomplishment has been helping a patient avoid surgery with massage therapy. She added:

“When a person gets a surgery, they need to go into massage after because the other muscles around that surgery have been dominating the strength need to be relieved. This is something in our industry that needs to be a thing. People need body workers that are willing to go from where the injury and insurance left off and to pick up and continue with their healing.”

What’s Next for BodyWiRX LLC

Small businesses can be a lot of work, and we wanted to know what motivates Rebecca and her team at BodyWiRX LLC to serve their clients day in and day out. When we asked Rebecca what’s most rewarding about what they do, she pointed to the individual time she spends with her clients and when she is able to treat a condition that a doctor could not help with.

We were excited to learn about what comes next for this award-winning massage therapy center, so we asked Rebecca what their goals are for the next year. She told us that her goal is to continue to get more and more referrals for the business.

As the owner of a second-time award-winning business, Rebecca has a lot of knowledge to share. When we asked what advice she has for the many new business owners out there who are just starting out, she said:

“Take the time to really invest in that person and their needs. Don’t worry about how many clients you are getting per day. One per day is enough. If you invest your time in that one person, you will be rewarded later.”

Rebecca ended our conversation with this very important shout-out:

“Adam Moeller, thank you for sticking with me for 13 years now. I really appreciate you as a client!”


Congratulations to Rebecca and the team at BodyWiRX LLC for a being Top Rated Local award winner for the second year in a row.

It is because of excellent reviews like this that Arcwest Architects is now able to call themselves a Top Rated Local award winner for the second year in a row!

Not Your Average Architecture Firm

We were excited to catch up with Arcwest Architects and hear about how the last year has gone for them, so we sat down with Robin Adams, who co-owns the company.

Robin started off by telling us a bit about their business and their team, as well as what makes them stand out compared to others in the industry. He said that they are a smaller group that really focuses on customer service. He said that they strive to make sure their clients are happy with the service they provide.

Making It As A Small Business

It takes a lot of courage and even more hard work to make it as a small business in today’s world. Robin shared that facing new challenges every day has been the most rewarding part of being a small business and that staying in business has been their greatest accomplishment this last year.

Robin also told us about the biggest lessons they have learned so far as a business. He said:

“We had to learn to stay flexible and realize that no project is too small. We work with individuals as best we can, no matter the obstacles.”

There are many businesses out there that are looking to build as impressive a reputation as Arcwest Architects has managed to. We asked if Robin could share any expert advice with these companies. Here’s what he had to say:

“Grow slow. Take your time, and keep an eye on expenses when working with different projects.”


Congratulations to Arcwest Architects for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and special thanks to Robin for taking the time to speak with us!

I have seen a few other therapists as well, and they were also excellent. If you want an excellent experience, this is where you want to go.” – Summer T.

Not Your Average Massage Therapy Center

We wanted to learn all about Peace of Mind Massage and its impressive online reputation, so we took a few minutes to talk with General Manager Elizabeth Ogletree.

The first question we had for Elizabeth was what is it that sets Peace of Mind Massage apart from their competition in Colorado. Here’s Elizabeth’s response:

“We are committed to growth and evolution in a healthy way. From the top, down; that is our standard. We’re always learning how to be better people, more conscious and more authentic with each other. I think people are looking for a personal experience when they get a massage, and we provide that for them. They want the trust and peace that we create in our studio. We focus on holding a space for people at whatever stage of the healing process they’re on.”

Elizabeth went on to add:

“We’ve expanded to offering conscious workshops and international retreats. We have one coming up April 25th through May 1st in Bocas del Toro, Panama, with Elaina, our founder.”

We also wanted to know what their mission is at Peace of Mind Massage and how they work to make the world a better place. Here’s what Elizabeth had to say:

“Our mission has always been to provide excellent customer service. We train our staff to be above and beyond in everything they do. Everyone here loves their job and really cares about helping people to heal and building our community.”

Building Success by Caring for Their Customers

Elizabeth attributes Peace of Mind Massage’s strong online reputation to their commitment to caring for their customers:

“Over time, our reputation for caring for clients has compelled people to want to share feedback. We do ask for reviews and encourage them whenever possible. We have an email system that sends out automated emails monthly and as needed. We also have SMS that directs people to leave a Google or Yelp review.”

Outside of building a powerful online reputation, Peace of Mind Massage has gotten their name out there through social media, by regularly donating to local nonprofits and charity events, through their monthly emails — which get sent to thousands of people — and by attending Denver’s biggest farmers market — the South Pearl Street Farmers Market, where you can find them on weekends offering massages, henna and astrology readings.

There are so many business owners out there looking to build the kind of online reputation Peace of Mind Massage has. Here’s Elizabeth’s expert advice for them:

“Don’t be afraid to put yourself out there. Be as authentic to yourself as you can be. Our owner didn’t take a day off for years when she first started. A commitment to going for it and sharing your passion will take you far.”


Congratulations to the team at Peace of Mind Massage for being a 2018 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Elizabeth, for taking the time to speak with us!

Not Your Average Restoration Company

We wanted to learn what makes this award-winning business tick, so we took a few minutes to talk with Jackie, office manager at SERVPRO of Archuleta, La Plata, Montezuma & San Juan Counties.

To kick off our conversation, we asked Jackie about what it is that makes SERVPRO unique compared to the many other restoration companies in Colorado. Jackie told us:

“We go above and beyond, and we make it like it never even happened.”

We also asked Jackie about the SERVPRO mission and how they work to make the world a better place. Here’s her response:

“Our mission is to develop a team of quality people who focus on excellent service, fairness and mutual respect.”

Jackie went on to say:

“When I send an invoice, I ask for a Google review. We don’t bring it up in the process, but once they tell us how pleased they are, we ask them to help us let other people know how important our service is.”

Outside of building a powerful online reputation, SERVPRO has grown by being an active part of their community, including donating to the Silverton fireworks show and sponsoring local sports teams.

There are many business owners looking to grow their business and build their online reputation. When we asked what advice she has for them, Jackie emphasized the importance of Google reviews and word of mouth, and said:

Congratulations to SERVPRO of Archuleta, La Plata, Montezuma & San Juan Counties for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Jackie, for taking the time to speak with us!

Colorado’s Top Rated Local® Dance Schools & Studios Award Winner: School of Breaking

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that School of Breaking is a 2019 award winner for dance schools and studios in Colorado!

If you’re looking for a dance school that can help you learn, develop and thrive as a break dancer, look no further than School of Breaking in Aurora.

School of Breaking has received dozens of reviews with a perfect average rating of 5.00 stars, earning them a fantastic Rating Score™ of 96.00 and a 2019 Top Rated Local award for ranking among the top five dance schools and studios in all of Colorado!

Here’s just one of the many five-star reviews that got them there:

“I cannot say enough good things about School of Breaking. My son has been dancing here for two and a half years and has grown so much…as a dancer and a person. I love that they welcome everyone with open arms and teach that community, respect and kindness are just as important, if not more, than the dance moves. The instructors are the best mentors and role models, and we feel lucky to be a part of the SOB family!” – Jade M.

Not Your Average Dance School

We wanted to learn what makes this award-winning business tick, so we took a few minutes to talk with Chase Evered, who co-owns School of Breaking with Tommy Talybov and Letoya Garland.

To kick off our conversation, we asked Chase about what it is that makes School of Breaking unique compared to the many other dance schools in Colorado. Chase told us that they teach “breaking,” which is the predominant form of dance in hip hop culture, and is a style of dance that many other schools may not necessarily focus on. They teach toddlers, children, teens and adults this form of dance, and stay authentic to its roots in the South Bronx in the 1970s.

We also asked Chase about the School of Breaking mission and how they work to make the world a better place. Chase shared with us that hip hop gives people a chance to express themselves and is a form of free speech. Hip hop is about peace and love and having fun. Teaching hip hop dance and culture is a tool for building character and educating kids about life. They strive to develop students from the inside out as people and prepare them for life. Hip hop dance training is physically healthy, and it develops self-esteem and confidence in their students. Dance training teaches kids to believe in themselves, to respect themselves and to treat others with that same respect. They want to educate their community and provide a tool for kids to learn discipline and perseverance.

Chase went on to say:

“Hip hop is a community of warriors for peace. It comes from impoverished roots and was built by people who made the best of a bad situation and wanted to create something out of nothing. Hip hop can help people get out of circumstances through the power of their mind unlocked by music and dance.”

Building Success Through Excellent Service

Chase credits School of Breaking’s strong online reputation to the fact that they always strive for consistent, excellent service and to help the youth and educate them on hip hop culture. Everything they do has allowed people to have a fantastic experience at School of Breaking.

Outside of building a powerful online reputation, School of Breaking has grown through web development and SEO (search engine optimization), which Tommy handles, and by constantly crafting their storyboard and message.

There are many business owners looking to grow their business and build their online reputation. Here’s Chase’s expert advice for them:

“Work to provide service to others, not to make money. Find a way to give back to your community and better the lives of others around you. Provide a fantastic service at a fair rate, and shoot for providing 10 times the value of your price.”


Congratulations to School of Breaking for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Chase, for taking the time to speak with us!

We highly recommend School of Breaking in Aurora. Visit their website today!

Thomas said that they pamper your animal and treat them as if they were their own. He told us about their amazing and experienced staff, like their master groomer, Laura, who has been doing this for 25 years. He also gave praise to Jen and Allison. Thomas also told us about their cage-free facility, saying:

“Ours is a free-running shop, so all of the dogs can run around. We don’t lock dogs up when they aren’t being groomed; they are able to run around freely.”

He went on to tell us about the business mission at Barking Beauties Dog Spa. Thomas said:

“Our mission is to provide the most professional grooming possible while pampering your pooch and treating your dog as if it was our own.”

Maintaining a Strong Online Reputation by Building Great Relationships

Sarah James, the owner of The Counseling Place at Lone Tree & Castle Pines, sat down with us for a few minutes so that we could catch up about what her team has been up to over the last year.

Looking Forward with The Counseling Place at Lone Tree & Castle Pines

Being a part of a small business is not always easy, and that’s why we wanted to know why they do what they do at The Counseling Place at Lone Tree & Castle Pines.

Colorado’s Top Rated Local® Roofing Contractors Award Winner: Stone Creek Roofing & Exteriors

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Stone Creek Roofing & Exteriors is an award winner for roofing companies in Colorado for the second year in a row!

For all of your roofing needs in Denver, Longmont and all of Northern Colorado, turn to the experts at Stone Creek Roofing & Exteriors.

Stone Creek Roofing & Exteriors has received more than 150 reviews on five verified sites with an average rating of 4.80 stars, earning them a phenomenal Rating Score™ of 99.02 and two 2019 Top Rated Local awards for ranking among the top 100 businesses and the top five roofing companies in all of Colorado for the second year in a row!

Here’s one of the many five-star reviews that got them there:

“Stone Creek Roofing did an amazing job replacing a roof on very short notice. The team was professional and dedicated to doing the job right. As a real estate agent, I need reliable contractors, and I will definitely be using Stone Creek again.” – Autumn W.

Maintaining a Strong Online Reputation by Taking Care of Clients and Doing the Right Thing

We wanted to learn all about Stone Creek Roofing & Exteriors and what they’ve been up to since they won two Top Rated Local awards in 2018, so we took a few minutes to talk with the General Manager and part-owner, Tika Stoddard.

It was clear from Stone Creek Roofing & Exteriors’ 2018 Top Rated Local awards that they know a thing or two about building a strong online reputation, and their 2019 Top Rated Local awards are evidence that they also know how to maintain their reputation. When we asked Tika what they’ve done to continue to get such great feedback, she said:

“We always make sure that we take care of our clients and our homeowners, and that we do the right thing, every time with every job. Things can go afoul, especially with roofing or with construction. I truly believe that the outcome depends on how you handle what went wrong and whether or not you make sure that the homeowner is completely satisfied in the end. We ask for feedback from homeowners. After every job, we ask, ‘How did we do? Is there anything we can do to improve on that?’ If they say, ‘No, you guys did great,’ we say, ‘Can you give us a review?’”

We also asked Tika what it is that makes Stone Creek Roofing & Exteriors stand out, and she told us that, as a part-owner, she’s been in Colorado for 26 years and is a graduate from Colorado State University, and that, David Prestwich, the majority owner was born and raised in Sterling.

David Prestwich started Stone Creek Roofing & Exteriors because he wanted to change the public’s view of roofers and roofing companies. Their slogan is, “We treat your home like it’s our own,” and they always put themselves in their customers’ shoes.

Small businesses go through many ups and downs over the years, and we wanted to know what lessons Stone Creek Roofing & Exteriors has learned over the last year, as well as what their biggest achievements are.

Tika shared with us that one of the biggest lessons they’ve learned is that it can be difficult to find good people, and when you do, you have to treat them right. They recognize that it’s more than just about money, and they show their appreciation for their team by doing quarterly events, like TopGolf.

Tika considers one of Stone Creek Roofing & Exteriors’ biggest achievements to be building roofs for two veterans and giving back to their community, which includes partnering with Jefferson High School and sitting on a panel at Ames Community College for girls interested in construction.

What’s Next for Stone Creek Roofing & Exteriors?

Small businesses can be a lot of work, and we wanted to know what motivates Tika and her team at Stone Creek Roofing & Exteriors to serve their clients day in and day out. When we asked Tika what’s most rewarding about what they do, she said:

“I think the most rewarding part is seeing the reputation that we have for giving excellent customer service and being able to help people. We do a lot in the community. We are huge supporters of Habitat for Humanity, and we do Roofs for Vets.”

We were excited to learn about what comes next for this award-winning roofing company, so we asked Tika what their goals are for the next year. She told that they are currently looking to expand further into Northern Colorado and to buy or build a new building.

As a part-owner of a second-time award-winning business, Tika has a lot of knowledge to share. When we asked what advice she has for the many new business owners out there who are just starting out, she said:

“Always be true to yourself, and always do the right thing. Hard work and determination pay off. There are days when I was at the office before the sun came up, and I was leaving the office when the sun went down — you’re going to have those days.”

Tika ended our conversation with this very important shout-out:

“David is a true leader, and when he sees something inside of you, he gives you wings and allows you to fly. He does that for everyone in the organization.”


Congratulations to Tika and the team at Stone Creek Roofing & Exteriors for being a Top Rated Local award winner for the second year in a row.
