Dave S., especially, made the entire process easy and streamlined. My roof looks AMAZING! Thank you, Dave S. and the team at Marshall! You’re the best!” – Tara D.

A One-of-a-Kind Roofing Company’s Secret to a Strong Online Reputation

Marshall Building & Remodeling 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, Anne Marshall.

The first thing we wanted to know was what makes Marshall Building & Remodeling unique compared to the many other roofing companies in Rhode Island. Anne told us:

“We are a family-owned company, and we are in the second generation. We’ve completed 8,000 projects, and we have really grown through the years from repeat clients and referrals. We provide a stress-free experience and don’t take any money down. We meet with the homeowner to understand the best products for their house. We are very transparent about how much it will cost. We back our work with a 15-year warranty. We have a team behind us of the best installers, project managers and support staff.”

When we asked what the secret is to such a solid online reputation at Marshall Building & Remodeling, Anne pointed to how selective they are when it comes to picking installers and project managers, which ensures that their clients get the experience they sign up for. Anne added:

“I believe that, if companies hold the promise that they give to their clients, then they will be willing to give good online feedback.”

Making the World a Better Place by Providing a Stress-Free Experience

We also wanted to know what their mission is at Marshall Building & Remodeling and how they work to make the world a better place. Here’s Anne’s response:

“Happiness starts inside the home. We are providing people with a stress-free experience. We are involved with a number of charities and organizations around Rhode Island. We try to spread honesty and trust in what we do, and do the best we can for the people in Rhode Island. We take the time to educate people as well. There is a lot to know when it comes to roofing. We want people to feel heard, and we take our time.”

Outside of building a powerful online reputation, Marshall Building & Remodeling has grown through traditional and digital marketing, repeat business and word of mouth:

“The best you can do is take care of your clients. They will be your voice in the community, which is what ultimately builds your business.”

It’s clear that Anne knows a thing or two about growing a business and building an online reputation. When we asked what advice she has for the many other business owners out there, she emphasized the importance of providing education and valuable content to your clients.

Anne ended our conversation on this appreciative note:

“After more than 35 years and thousands of projects completed, we want to thank our stellar team and the homeowners who have trusted their homes to Marshall.”

Sharp Solutions has received dozens of reviews with an average rating of 4.78 stars, earning them a fantastic Rating Score™ of 94.78 and a 2019 Top Rated Local award for ranking among the top five computer IT services in all of Rhode Island!

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

“I had an iPhone 6s that stopped working for no apparent reason. They took a look at it and informed me of the issue and what caused it. Instead of the usual robbery scam that other places love to pull, they showed me exactly what happened. They also let me know that it wasn’t worth fixing and to just get a new phone. Who says there’s no such thing as an honest salesman? A five-star rating isn’t enough; I give you guys a 10!” – J.A.

Not Your Average Computer Repair Company

We wanted to learn what makes this award-winning business tick, so we took a few minutes to talk with Andrew Sharp and Nicholas Habib, the owners of Sharp Solutions.

To kick off our conversation, we asked Andrew and Nicholas about what it is that makes Sharp Solutions unique compared to the many other computer repair companies in Rhode Island. Andrew and Nicholas told us:

“We are personable, and we are honest. If a device isn’t worth fixing, we will tell you. If we can’t do something, or have time, we know somebody who can. We are not all about the upsell; we are about making the customer happy. We are here for the long haul. Sometimes, we could make a buck, but we will offer a customer something that actually fits their needs. We do repairs that nobody else will even touch. If it has a circuit board, we will fix it. We have to stay up on technology constantly.”

They went on to add:

“We have a combined 45 years of experience, and we have been in business for more than two years. We support a lot of local businesses, including providing on-call tech support for them, as well as server builds, database management and security camera installs. We work with smaller companies that larger companies don’t want to work with.”

We also asked Andrew and Nicholas about the Sharp Solutions mission and how they work to make the world a better place. Here’s Andrew and Nicholas’ response:

“We offer free consultations for the entire community. We do quick repairs mostly for free. We take old electronics in for free and dispose of them.”

Building Success by Treating People Like People

Andrew and Nicholas credit Sharp Solutions’ strong online reputation to the simple fact that they treat people like people:

“We just ask our customers that, if they like the service, to review us. The secret is to treat people like people. We speak to customers in a language they can understand.”

Outside of building a powerful online reputation, Sharp Solutions has grown through local advertising, occasional videos on YouTube and social media ads.

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

“Be honest with people, and have more money than you think you need to start it.”


Congratulations to Sharp Solutions for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Andrew and Nicholas, for taking the time to speak with us!

We highly recommend Sharp Solutions in Cumberland. Visit their website today!

We were excited to learn all about Nanaquaket Yoga Studio and how they have gotten where they are today, so we sat down with the owner, Rachael Frodyma.

The first thing we wanted to know was what it is that makes Nanaquaket Yoga Studio stand apart from its competitors. Rachael told us about their inclusive, beginner-friendly studio:

“We are not a typical studio; we welcome all beings of all shapes and sizes. You don’t have to look like an Instagram model dressed in Lululemon from head to toe. We take all newcomers for a tour and chat with them about why they are coming, getting to know about their previous experience and what their expectations are. We offer lots of gentle and beginner classes for the community.”

Building Success And Giving Back

In addition to building the kind of online reputation that any small business would envy, Nanaquaket Yoga Studio has spread the word about who they are and what they do by finding ways to stay involved with, and give back to, the community. Rachael told us that they just ran a summer program on Thursday evenings that was donation-based, with all proceeds going to The Moon and Back, a nonprofit that helps families and children born with substance abuse. They are also involved with The Fly Foundation, which gives young adults financial support if diagnosed with cancer. They recently hosted a free yoga on the beach event, where about 100 people got to participate. They also partner with a local coffee shop, Coastal Coffee Roasters. With this partnership, they strive to get people to put the phone down, do some yoga, and then grab a cup of coffee. This coming Saturday, Nanaquaket Yoga Studio will be going to Warren, Rhode Island, and teaming up with Nectar De La Vida. This will be a yoga class followed by a session with a nutritionist from Nectar De La Vida. Nanaquaket also offers free yoga classes for employees of the Nature Conservancy. Be on the lookout for their upcoming event at The Somerset open-air market, where they will do free yoga on the lawn!

Rachael also wanted us to bring attention to a few other organizations they partner with. She said that their studio is full of animal lovers and that one of the teachers does dog training, called Eye to Eye. It is for dogs who need some behavioral guidance. She also wanted to give a shoutout to One Dog at a Time, which takes in mill puppies and dogs that are going to be euthanized. Rachael will house them until she finds a home for them within the community.

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

“Be open to feedback and constructive criticism.”


Congratulations to Nanaquaket Yoga Studio for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and special thanks to Rachael for taking the time to speak with us!

The first thing we wanted to know was what it is that makes Cowesett Animal Hospital stand apart from its competitors.

“The difference comes from the staff and the way we work together. There can be turmoil, and it can be a stressful environment, so having a staff that works together as a team makes a huge difference. It also comes from our owners and full-time doctors; they set the precedent and give us a good example to follow.”

Wea sked Kimberly to tell us a bit more about the Cowesett Animal Hospital business mission, and she said:

“Our mission is to achieve the highest quality of life for each patient and client; we provide our clients with education and a personalized approach to assist them as partners in their pet’s healthcare. Our practice will reflect our commitment to the highest ethical standards.”

Building Success And Putting Clients First

The staff was great! We chatted about the cut, but the most important thing was the time they took and the questions they asked about Marley.

Rhode Island’s Top Rated Local® Fitness Centers Award Winner: 212 Health & Performance

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that 212 Health & Performance is a 2019 award winner for fitness centers in Rhode Island!

If you’re looking for a fitness center that will help you reach your goals and push you beyond your limits, look no further than 212 Health & Performance in East Providence.

212 Health & Performance has received more than 100 reviews with a perfect average rating of 5.00 stars, earning them a wonderful Rating Score™ of 96.00 and a 2019 Top Rated Local award for ranking among the top five fitness centers in all of Rhode Island!

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

“I can’t say enough good things about 212 Health & Performance. Kerry and his team have created the most fun, motivating and energetic environment I have ever seen. It is truly more like a family than a gym. If you are ready to make some lifestyle changes and get back to your best self you can, I highly recommend you give 212 a try. You WON’T be sorry!!!” – Brian T.

Not Your Average Fitness Center

We wanted to learn all about 212 Health & Performance and its impressive online reputation, so we took a few minutes to talk with the owner, Kerry Taylor.

The first question we had for Kerry was what is it that sets 212 Health & Performance apart from their competition in Rhode Island. Here’s Kerry’s response:

“My thing is that you’re not just a number to us. We’re a family; we’re a community that is built off the 212-degree analogy. At 211 degrees, water is hot. At 212 degrees, water boils. With boiling water, you get steam, and with steam, you can power a locomotive. That is how we approach the fitness side of things. Our goal is to make sure we get our clients a little bit better each day they come in, and if you can get a little bit better each day, down the road, you’ll never know what you’re capable of because with that one degree of change means all the world in everything else.”

Kerry went on to add:

“We’re here to have fun. We’re not here to prove that we can get you exhausted and kill you. That’s not our goal. Our goal is to make you better the right way and make sure you’re not just a number. We know your name when you come in here. We know your face and everything else.”

We also wanted to know what their mission is at 212 Health & Performance and how they work to make the world a better place. Kerry told us that he grew up as a skinny city kid, and when he moved to the suburbs of Mansfield, Massachusetts, he got involved in sports, training and working out. This opened up doors for him to get a scholarship to play college football and to eventually play in the NFL, which allowed him to become a high school football coach and give back to the community. His story shows people in his community that they can achieve anything they want. Kerry added:

“Because it allowed me so much in my life, I want to make sure I can give that back to people. I think working out is not just about getting in shape; it does so much more for you — spiritually and mentally, not just physically. I have kind of a crazy drive and insatiability to want to help people achieve whatever they’re looking for.”

Building Success Through Customer Service

Kerry attributes 212 Health & Performance’s strong online reputation to the fact that he and his team take pride in their customer service and they have a commitment to taking care of people and giving them service that they can’t get anywhere else, which leads to their members wanting to talk about them and promote them.

Outside of building a powerful online reputation, 212 Health & Performance has gotten their name out there through community involvement and by focusing on taking care of their members:

“We are firm believers that, if you take care of the people, the people, in turn, will take care of you over time. That’s kind of our goal, and that’s why we take so much pride in our customer service and our family and our community.”

There are so many business owners out there looking to build the kind of online reputation 212 Health & Performance has. Here’s Kerry’s expert advice for them:

“It’s not necessarily about you; it’s about the people you serve. …It’s more about the community and the people you serve, so you need to highlight those people and not the other way around.”


Congratulations to the team at 212 Health & Performance for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Kerry, for taking the time to speak with us!

We highly recommend 212 Health & Performance in East Providence. Visit their website today!
