Not Your Average Chiropractic Clinic

We wanted to learn more about this two-time award winner and how they managed to build such an impressive online reputation, so we took a few minutes to talk with Dr. Connelly, a chiropractor at Friendship Heights Chiropractic.

The first thing we wanted to know was what makes Friendship Heights Chiropractic a one-of-a-kind chiropractic clinic in Washington DC. Here’s what Dr. Connelly had to say:

“We are the busiest practice in Washington DC, and we have both male and female chiropractors. We see people of all ages and walks of life. We’ve been practicing for 30 years in the same spot with both easy and free parking — not an easy feat here in Washington DC!”

Dr. Connelly went on to tell us that, in 2007, he was awarded “Outstanding Chiropractor of the Year” by the District of Columbia Chiropractic Association for his work in the community and his commitment to the chiropractic profession. He added:

“I was a teacher for 12 years before becoming a doctor. Educating clients is very important to me. With each patient, I go over ergonomics, diet and practice exercises to do at home. We are about full rehabilitation!”

We also asked Dr. Connelly what their mission is at Friendship Heights Chiropractic and how they work to make the world a better place. Here’s her response:

“We unite together with compassion, dedication and integrity to provide our patients with the highest quality of chiropractic care. We are committed to educating and inspiring our patients and the community on how to achieve maximum wellness. We share the belief that true health comes from a combination of exercise, diet, attitude and a properly aligned spine. Our practice also goes into the local community and hosts wellness events, including The Glover Park Free Health Fare.”

Furthermore, Dr. Connelly has written articles and lectured on health issues, such as ergonomics, backpack safety and exercise. He frequently attends high school and college career days, where he inspires young adults to consider the rewards of serving others through chiropractic.

Building Success Through Sincerity and by Caring

Dr. Connelly attributes Friendship Heights Chiropractic’s strong online reputation to their commitment to always being sincere and truly caring about their patients:

“If you are about service and not about how much money you can make, people will see that! If you are sincere and truly care about your patients’ well-being, that will show! I have served the Washington DC community through chiropractic care for over 30 years.”

Outside of building a powerful online reputation, Friendship Heights Chiropractic has gotten their name out there through affiliate partnerships and by doing lectures at corporations.

I highly recommend working with [them]! – V.K.

Not Your Average Real Estate Brokerage

We were excited to learn all about City Chic Real Estate and how they have gotten where they are today, so we sat down with the Director of Marketing and Growth, Lizzie Russo.

The first thing we wanted to know was what it is that makes City Chic Real Estate stand apart from its competitors.

Lizzie said that it has a lot to do with their client interaction. At City Chic Real Estate, they make sure they are part of every single part of the buying process. Their clients like the fact that they provide transparency about the process so they are completely aware of what is going on at all times. Home buying is a huge process, and one of the most important purchases you ever make. The majority of their clients are first-time homebuyers, so their staff works hard to make sure the client is comfortable, aware, and excited. They are a boutique broker that is thriving in an area that isn’t always boutique friendly. Clearly, their agents are doing something right!

Building Success And Giving Back

City Chic Real Estate has earned a fantastic reputation, so we asked Lizzie how they have managed to grow their business and get their name out. Lizzie said that, while they primarily utilize online resources to spread the word about their company, they always offer a personal touch to their clients.

In addition to building the kind of online reputation that any small business would envy, City Chic Real Estate has spread the word about who they are and what they do by getting involved with the community, where they participate in a variety of charitable works. This year, they hosted a clothing donation for a local women’s shelter, called Dress for Success. They also offer first-time buyer seminars for everybody at any stage of the process and make sure their clients are very aware of first-time buyer programs in all three states. It is important for them to make sure their clients are aware of all the options available to them.

There are many businesses out there that are looking to build as impressive a reputation as City Chic Real Estate has managed to. We asked if Lizzie could share any expert advice with these companies. Here’s what she had to say:

“Know your audience, neighborhood, and demographic. Keep the consistency of your brand, and be authentic.”


Congratulations to City Chic Real Estate for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and special thanks to Lizzie for taking the time to speak with us!

“Follow the Golden Rule: treat people how you want to be treated… It’s just about treating people well and being honest with them. If we think it is tough to find them a job, we’ll tell them. We will tell people to reach out to other companies to help them out. We have the longest guarantee in the business, which is a six-month unconditional guarantee with our candidates.

“Everyone at Paul Davis was amazing and so easy to work with! Our insurance sent them out for damage clean up after pipes burst, and we were so impressed with the team that we didn’t think twice about using them for the rebuild/remodel work! Every team member showed up on time, completed the work as expected and made the whole process a breeze! I cannot say enough good things about this company! Thank you, Paul Davis, for getting our home back in order and even better than before!” – Christine F.

Not Your Average Restoration Company

We wanted to know what makes Washington DC’s number one restoration company so special, so we took a few minutes to talk with Vice President of Business Development, Tom Plant.

The first question we had for Tom was what makes Paul Davis Restoration unique compared to their competition in Washington DC. Here’s what he had to say:

“Paul Davis has been around since 1966. Our primary business, literally since 1966, has been to provide emergency services and restoration to people who have suffered water damage, fire damage or storm damage. It’s not as though we came from another industry because we thought this was an interesting business to be in; we’ve always been in this business. We think we understand what the customer really needs, and we think we’re pretty darn good at providing that service.”

Tom went on to say:

“We’ve gotten where we are thanks to a lot of training and putting in the effort to find the right people to work for this company. It definitely takes a special person to get up in the middle of the night and go a long way to help somebody, and not everyone on the street is excited about doing that for a living. We’re very careful about who we hire, and we want to make sure those people are really focused on taking care of our customers.”

We also asked Tom about Paul Davis Restoration’s mission and how they work to make the world a better place. Tom told us:

“This year, we’ve made a concerted effort to actually get more involved in the community. We have some core values that we focus on and talk about on a daily basis. It’s all based on the Golden Rule — treat others like you’d expect to be treated yourself. If we do that on a daily basis with each and every customer, people will really respect that and appreciate that. I’ve always said to our people, ‘Treat each customer as if they’re the only customer.’”

Building Success With the Right Team

When we asked Tom what their secret is to such a strong online reputation at Paul Davis Restoration, he attributed it to the really good people they have on their team who serve their customers the right way. Many of their customers are pretty traumatized, and the team at Paul Davis goes out of their way to provide the best possible service for them. Tom added:

“If we make them happy and they feel good about it, then we do ask them very kindly to give us a good rating…”

Apart from building the kind of online reputation any business would envy, Paul Davis Restoration has spread the word about their service through advertising in Frederick Lifestyle, by visiting potential customers face to face, by posting about interesting topics on Facebook and LinkedIn, and by educating their customers through lunch and learns and seminars. They are also very involved in their community, where they participate in community events, four different Chambers of Commerce, the Rotary Club and nonprofit events to help out the less fortunate.

Every business owner wants to grow their business and build their online reputation the way Paul Davis Restoration has. After we asked what advice he has for them, Tom emphasized the importance of taking care of your customers, being proactive about asking for reviews and building a solid online image.


Congratulations to the team at Paul Davis Restoration for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Tom, for taking the time to speak with us!

“Our primary objective is to provide good products and services as well as information and advice to all clients.”

“The most important thing that you have to do as a small business is to perfect your niche. Don’t grow too quickly. There are a lot of 7/11’s in the country, and their little 750 square foot store operations are highly successful for a reason. They don’t do too much. You must perfect the basics.”


Congratulations to W.S. Jenks & Son for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and special thanks to Mike for taking the time to speak with us!
