I will not go anywhere else for hot tub related parts or service in the future. I highly recommend.” – Jimmy D.

“I’ve used Device Pros numerous times. Each time they are 1) the least expensive, 2) fast, and 3) super friendly. And their repairs seem to be done well and using quality parts. I highly recommend them. I’m a geek with an electronic engineering degree, so I’m picky, but these guys really are excellent.” – Preston B.

It is because of excellent reviews like this that Device Pros is now able to call themselves a Top Rated Local award winner!

Not Your Average Computer Repair Company

We were excited to learn all about how Device Pros has been able to build such an impressive reputation, so we sat down with the part-owner, Matthew Vaughn. The first thing we wanted to know was what it is that makes Device Pros stand apart from their local competitors. When it comes to standing out from the crowd, Matthew says:

“The experience that the people who work here have helps to set us apart. [Others] hire hourly employees that don’t have a lot of experience or certifications. Our experience and knowledge will set us apart from anybody else.”

Confidence in the employees’ experience shines through in the reviews. Here’s what another satisfied customer has to say:

“This store has become my favorite for my cell phone repairs. They are very knowledgeable and have parts in stock to fix phones that no one else has. I got my phone fixed in an hour instead of waiting days for a part to come in…” – Patrick D.

Building Success Through Marketing

With so many happy customers leaving such positive reviews, we had to ask Matthew about Device Pro’s secret to such a strong online reputation. He said:

“The owners run the business, that’s the main reason for the good reviews. Being 100-percent honest and forthright with all of our customers is important to us. We don’t make things sound good just to get the sale. We try to save the customers money…”

We asked how Device Pros has worked to market its business. Matthew says:

“Word of mouth, and we hand out a lot of coupons. Most of our marketing is online with Google Ads, and we have been trying to get more into Facebook and staying up on SEO with our website… It seems like everybody uses Google search, so as long as you stay on top of your organic search listings, you stay relevant.”

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

“Social media for sure, that’s big…Google is number one in the world; everybody goes there. You have to have your own website to present your business ideas and services.”


Congratulations to Device Pros for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and special thanks to Matthew for taking the time to speak with us!
