I highly recommend this company!!!!” – H.C.

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

Not Your Average Limousine Service Company

We were excited to learn all about Executive Travel of Nashville and how they have gotten where they are today, so we sat down with the owner, Ed Kennedy.

The first thing we wanted to know was what it is that makes Executive Travel of Nashville stand apart from its competitors. Ed shared:

“We try to give the client something more than what they are expecting. Our drivers are really professional guys, and people get to know them.”

When we asked Ed about the Executive Travel of Nashville business mission, he said:

“Our mission is to always make sure the client feels like they are the first person to ride in the vehicle and for the drivers to be courteous.”

Building Success Through Great Service

Executive Travel of Nashville has earned a fantastic reputation, so we asked Ed how they have managed to grow their business and get such great online reviews. He shared that people appreciate their competitive pricing and excellent service, which leads to the great reviews they receive.

In addition to building the kind of online reputation that any small business would envy, Executive Travel of Nashville has spread the word about who they are and what they do mostly through word of mouth.

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

“Make sure you do what you say you’re going to do. People’s biggest complaint is that companies promise things and don’t follow through. Kindness will get you a long way.”

Ed ended our chat with this touching sentiment:

“We would like to thank the great people of Nashville for supporting us. We have been blessed to have served the community and appreciate all the great comments and reviews they have left.”


Congratulations to Executive Travel of Nashville for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and special thanks to Ed for taking the time to speak with us!

Tennessee’s Top Rated Local® Therapists & Psychiatrists Award Winner: Nashville Psych

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Nashville Psych is a 2019 award winner for therapists and psychiatrists in Tennessee!

If you’re looking for a therapist who will serve you with professionalism and compassion, look no further than Nashville Psych.

Nashville Psych has received multiple reviews on three verified sites with an impeccable average rating of 5.00 stars, earning them an incredible Rating Score™ of 94.00 and a 2019 Top Rated Local award for ranking among the top five therapists and psychiatrists in all of Tennessee!

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

“Dr. Goldstein is a compassionate and caring provider who strives to give the best care he can at every visit with his clients. A good therapist is extremely hard to find, and I am grateful to have found one who is in it for the love of patient care and well-being.” D.I.

Not Your Average Therapy Center

Daniel Goldstein, PhD, the Founder of Nashville Psych, generously gave us a few minutes of his time to tell us about this one-of-a-kind business and its award-winning online reputation.

The first thing we wanted to know was what it is that sets Nashville Psych apart from the many other therapy centers in Tennessee. Here’s Dr. Goldstein’s response:

“We are a one-stop shop for counseling in Nashville, and we really take pride in providing excellent customer service to our clients. When people are ready to ask for help, they shouldn’t have to wait weeks for a return call. We offer counseling to children, adults, couples and families, as well as career counseling and group therapy. We place tremendous value on the client-therapist relationship, which research shows is the best indicator of success in therapy. We are also known for our psychoeducational assessments for both children and adults, which means that we help diagnose people who have ADHD, autism spectrum disorder, a personality disorder or a learning disability.”

We also wanted to know why they do what they do at Nashville Psych and how they work to make the world a better place. Here’s what Dr. Goldstein had to say:

“Our mission is to provide the support, guidance and tools necessary to help our clients experience relief from suffering and be empowered to achieve their full potential.”

Building Success by Providing Quality Therapy

When we asked Dr. Goldstein about Nashville Psych’s secret to such a strong online reputation, he said:

“I think the secret to our strong online reputation is providing quality therapy to clients. Therapists cannot ethically request feedback from clients, so anyone who chooses to review us on Google or Yelp is doing it 100-percent on their own. That makes positive reviews even more meaningful to us.”

Outside of building the kind of online reputation any business owner would envy, Nashville Psych has spread the word about who they are and what they do by sending announcements to physicians and families in the area via mailers, by sharing practice news with the Nashville Psychotherapy Institute, by connecting with other mental health providers in central Tennessee and by building relationships with pediatricians, internal medicine doctors and schools.

Clearly, Dr. Goldstein 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:

“The most important way to grow and maintain a strong online reputation is to ensure that you are providing top-notch care for your clients. Search engine optimization, blogging and social media marketing are key components to building awareness about your practice or business.”


Congratulations to the team at Nashville Psych for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Dr. Goldstein, for taking the time to speak with us!

Tennessee’s Top Rated Local® Dance Schools & Studios Award Winner: HisTown Dance Studio

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that HisTown Dance Studio is a 2019 award winner for dance schools and studios in Tennessee!

If you’re looking for professional dance training in a Christian environment, look no further than HisTown Dance Studio in Nashville.

HisTown Dance Studio has received dozens of reviews with a perfect average rating of 5.00 stars, earning them a stupendous Rating Score™ of 80.00 and a 2019 Top Rated Local award for ranking among the top five dance schools and studios in all of Tennessee!

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

“HisTown Dance Studio was referred to our family for my daughter, who is now homeschooling. We absolutely LOVE HisTown! They are professional yet personable! From the first day that our daughter had started dance lessons with them, they’ve always expressed enthusiasm and how much they love having our daughter dance with them! It’s VERY family-oriented, and we can’t say enough great things about HisTown! We drive all the way from Murfreesboro to come here, and it’s worth it!” – Genni A.

Not Your Average Dance Studio

We wanted to learn what makes this award-winning business tick, so we took a few minutes to talk with Ken Farley, the Director of HisTown Dance Studio.

To kick off our conversation, we asked Ken about what it is that makes HisTown Dance Studio unique compared to the many other dance studios in Tennessee. Ken told us:

“We teach a wide variety of genres of dance for ages two and up, including ballet, hip-hop, jazz, contemporary, modern, musical theater, tap and acro. We offer very generous discounts for families with more than one child and a class schedule that makes it easy for siblings to attend different classes at the same time. We’re very upfront about the fact that we’re a faith-based, Christian dance studio, and that those values and beliefs are integrated into everything we do and how we treat our families and their children. This is also reflected in our more conservative approach with the choreography and modest costuming used in our recital performances. We’re also not a competitive dance studio, so there’s not the pressure and stress that can sometimes come with that aspect of dance studio life. But we’re still known for providing our students with very solid techniques and training, and utilizing a great team of teachers with a wealth of experience who also care about nurturing their hearts and minds as well.”

Ken went on to add:

“It’s got to be fun, too, and we want every student to be excited about coming to dance and leave looking forward to coming back for more. We love the fact that many consider HisTown to be their ‘home away from home’ or ‘second family.’ And whether a child is interested in taking dance for recreation or hoping to make it a professional career, there’s a place for them here. We’ve had many of our students secure full or partial dance scholarships at colleges and universities around the country as a result of their training at HisTown.”

We also asked Ken about the HisTown Dance Studio mission and how they work to make the world a better place. Here’s his response:

“HisTown was birthed more than 16 years ago when we saw an opportunity to provide training in various genres of dance in a Christian setting, where dancers can use their God-given gifts and talents for ministry, outreach and entertainment. With an emphasis on strong technique and professional training, it is our goal to provide a positive, fun and encouraging atmosphere that every dancer can thrive in. We encourage each dancer to be the best they can be, without feeling the need or pressure to compete with each other, and we view dance as a team activity where it’s important to support and cheer on their fellow dancers along the way. It is an honor for us to work with such a wonderful group of teachers and students who share our passion for the art of dance.”

Building Success by Taking Care of Their Students and Their Families

Ken credits HisTown Dance Studio’s strong online reputation to their commitment to taking great care of their students and their families:

“In most cases, the reviews and feedback are left by customers of ours who just wanted to express their opinions and share their experiences with others. We feel that, if we focus on taking care of our students and families well, they’ll be happy to spread the word with their circle of friends and family.”

Outside of building a powerful online reputation, HisTown Dance Studio has grown through Facebook and Instagram, by partnering with local businesses in the area and through word of mouth, which Ken says comes organically as a result of the way they serve their customers.

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

“Be able to clearly articulate your vision and explain what your company has to offer and how it will benefit those considering their services or products.”


Congratulations to HisTown Dance Studio for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Ken, for taking the time to speak with us!

I cannot recommend her more highly.”

A One-of-a-Kind Event Planner’s Secret to a Strong Online Reputation

Laurie D’Anne Events 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, Laurie.

The first thing we wanted to know was what makes Laurie D’Anne Events unique compared to the many other event planners in Tennessee. Laurie told us:

“I have a unique ability to sit with a client and clearly understand what they want and need. We specialize our services each and every time around the budget. I strive to bring critical listening skills and balance to all incorporated aspects of each event. This ensures the guest of honor and the entire event brightly shines.”

When we asked what the secret is to such a solid online reputation at Laurie D’Anne Events, Laurie pointed to the fact that, while she does ask for reviews sometimes, most of the time, clients write reviews because they want to give them a shoutout. They also send out thank you notes and follow-up emails to all clients.

Making the World a Better Place by Creating Experiences That Will Last a Lifetime

We also wanted to know what their mission is at Laurie D’Anne Events and how they work to make the world a better place. Laurie shared with us that their goal is to create experiences for their clients that will last a lifetime:

“I incorporate all five senses into all of my designs. This engages each guest in a lasting way and creates that phenomenal experience.”

Laurie also told us about how she and her team give back to their community:

“I spread joy throughout the city of Nashville and beyond. This is a very tight-knit community, and we all help one another. Helping to bring in more tourism and visitors is a huge spark to the local community.”

It’s clear that Laurie 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:

“You have to build relationships, period. Sometimes, it is not what you know; it’s who you know. You must always get out there and network personally and professionally. Stay present, and try to become a fixture in the community. Face-to-face meetings are critical.”

Laurie ended our conversation with this sentiment:

“Thank you, Nashville, for your continued support. It is a magical experience to create the events our customers will remember for the rest of their lives. I could not be more grateful for the opportunities to create the events of your dreams.”


Congratulations to the team at Laurie D’Anne Events for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner!

“Pierre and his team took care of the cleanup of a monster tree that came down in our yard. They were fast, efficient, polite and able to start the same day we called to let him know we wanted to hire them. His price was also the best we were quoted by far. We highly recommend them and will definitely use them for any future tree needs!” – Jori P.

Not Your Average Tree Care Company

We wanted to learn what makes this award-winning business tick, so we took a few minutes to talk with Tammy, Head Groundsman and Social Media Manager at Total Tree Service.

To kick off our conversation, we asked Tammy about what it is that makes Total Tree Service unique compared to the many other tree care companies in Tennessee. Tammy told us:

“Our quotes will always be reasonably priced! The quoted price is the price you will pay! We don’t nickel or dime even if we make a mistake and underbid. We operate with integrity and morals. We do what we say; it’s that simple! We will not leave until our customer is satisfied. When we do trim work, we prefer the client to be there to ensure that they are pleased with the job.”

Tammy went on to say:

“We will take down any tree, including dead! We are true lumberjacks and do not use a bucket truck. We love being outside in nature!”

Pierre taught Tammy’s two sons how to climb and his with her daughter. He started in the industry when he was just 12 years old with deep woods logging. He was working for a different tree care company in Kansas when he fell and broke his pelvis. After he healed, he moved to Tennessee to start over again, and Tammy’s daughter pushed him into opening Total Tree Service.

We also asked Tammy about the Total Tree Service mission and how they work to make the world a better place. Tammy said:

“We aren’t out here to make a killing; we are here to make a living!”

Building Success Through Excellent Work

Tammy credits Total Tree Service’s strong online reputation to their commitment to doing excellent work:

For all of your window cleaning needs, work with the experienced, professional team at Divine Window Cleaning.

We will look forward to a long-term relationship in the future with Chris and his services — [we] highly recommend [them] to all!”

Not Your Average Window Cleaner

Chris Carr, the owner of Divine Window Cleaning, generously gave us a few minutes of his time to tell us about this one-of-a-kind business and its award-winning online reputation.

The first thing we wanted to know was what it is that sets Divine Window Cleaning apart from the many other window cleaners in Tennessee. Chris told us that, while other window cleaners throw bodies at a job to get it done rather than providing a great service, he would rather have fewer jobs if that means that he can provide higher-quality work:

“I try to give my clients exactly what I would want someone to give me. I am not just the name of the company; I am the face of the company, and I am there for every single job.”

Chris went on to say:

“I am not the cheapest on the market. Eight out of 10 clients are looking for the cheapest option, and I am looking for those two who want quality.”

We also wanted to know why they do what they do at Divine Window Cleaning and how they work to make the world a better place. Here’s what Chris had to say:

“[Our mission is] to provide quality and personable service for a reasonable price to one business at a time throughout Nashville. The job is always done right the first time every time. That is why it is hard for me to hire people on. I am picky about who I bring on…”

Building Success Through Quality Service

When we asked Chris about Divine Window Cleaning’s secret to such a strong online reputation, he said:

“My company is strongly based on quality. Quality is what turns making extra money on the side into a full-blown business. I am very personable with my clients and act as if I have known them for years. I speak the truth about the job. I am always doing what’s in my clients’ best interest.”

Outside of building the kind of online reputation any business owner would envy, Divine Window Cleaning has spread the word about who they are and what they do through referrals, Facebook, Yellow Pages, Google ads and their website.

Clearly, Chris 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:

“The customer comes first, and everything you do when you pull up to the house is for the customer, not for you. Treat your customer as you would treat your mother and father. They are going to respond to someone they feel comfortable with and is reliable. Take your time; build it slow, and take yourself and every single job seriously.”

Chris ended our conversation with this sentiment:

“Thank you to all my returning clients and my family. I appreciate every bit of business, and I would love to meet any clients who are looking for a quality window cleaner.”


Congratulations to the team at Divine Window Cleaning for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Chris, for taking the time to speak with us!

[This is a] really beautiful salon with very nice, warm and welcoming people. I highly recommend [them]! If I’m ever back in Memphis, I’ll be sure to stop by here again.” – M.N.

Not Your Average Beauty Salon

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 Paige, the owner of Rachel’s Salon & Day Spa.

The first thing we wanted to know was what makes Rachel’s Salon & Day Spa a one-of-a-kind beauty salon in Tennessee. Here’s what Paige had to say:

“We focus on the guest, and we are 100-percent focused on meeting your needs, not on what we think you need. We are committed to our culture, and our team is clear on our mission and our commitments, which means everyone is working together to achieve the same results.”

We also asked Paige what their mission is at Rachel’s Salon & Day Spa and how they work to make the world a better place. Here’s her response:

“Our mission is to create a five-star experience for every guest every time and to offer an environment that allows our guests to relax and enjoy their time with us while maintaining the highest standard of excellence.”

Building Success by Providing a Great Client Experience

Paige attributes Rachel’s Salon & Day Spa’s strong online reputation to their commitment to providing a great experience for their clients:

“Our guest care team is trained to ask our guests about their experience when they check out. Rarely do we come across anyone who has had a less-than-positive experience with us; however, we realize that it does happen, and when it does, we do everything in our power to resolve the situation prior to their departure to assure that they leave as a raving fan.”

Outside of building a powerful online reputation, Rachel’s Salon & Day Spa has gotten their name out there through presence on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter:

“We know our market and our demographic, and we use all three of those avenues to reach our target market. We tag and hashtag locally so that our social media gets pulled into local feeds. We spend a lot of time educating our team to make sure everyone understands the importance of using those mediums to build our brand awareness.”

Every business owner wants to build the kind of online reputation Rachel’s Salon & Day Spa has. When we asked Paige what advice she has for those business owners, she said:

“Work with people outside of your own business who know more than you do. I’ve been in this industry for a very long time, but I’m still a fairly new business owner. People say that if you make it through the first three to five years, you’re on your way! My five-year anniversary is on October 1, and I have surrounded myself with people both in my industry and those in other industries who were willing to share what has and has not worked for them. I love to learn from other people who have done ‘it’ well (and those who are willing to be honest about their failures as well!). I’m very aware of the fact that I don’t know everything and want to learn as much as I can from people who are willing to share!”


Congratulations to the team at Rachel’s Salon & Day Spa for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Paige, for taking the time to speak with us!

We highly recommend Rachel’s Salon & Day Spa in Memphis. Visit their website today!

Sara added:

“I am humbled and grateful to be a small part of this amazing thing.”

Building Success With a Great Community of People

Sara attributes Prime Fitness Clarksville’s strong online reputation to the great community of people they have on their side:

Outside of building a powerful online reputation, Prime Fitness Clarksville has gotten their name out there by working with and learning from people who have found success in marketing. Sara told us that they are constantly in motion, growing and learning.

“There is nothing more important than treating your customers better than the way you think they deserve to be treated! Treat them better than you would expect to be treated! Follow The Golden Rule: ‘Do unto others as you would have them do unto you!’ People must come before profit, yourself, the business, etc. Business ethics and personal morals are of paramount importance.”

Sara ended our conversation by thanking her team:

“Thank you to my wonderful staff! We are truly a little family, and I could not do this without you all! It is amazing that we all love to not only serve our customers but one another as well!”

Their technicians take the utmost care with each client’s furnishings and home, even using corner guards to protect doorways. Their whole staff is conscientious and dedicated to doing the best job possible!” – J.G.

Not Your Average Rug Cleaner

We were excited to learn all about Carr’s Rug Cleaning and how they have gotten where they are today, so we sat down with the owner and operator, Bob.

The first thing we wanted to know was what it is that makes Carr’s Rug Cleaning stand apart from its competitors. Bob started out by telling us about their incredible staff, saying:

“We have great, long-term, and committed people. When you have that, anything is possible. You are only as strong as your weakest link! Let your people do their thing! You hired them for a reason! We have great people who are committed, and we are very fortunate to have the people we do. They make it work. ”

Bob went on to tell us that Carr’s Rug Cleaning is known for paying attention to the smallest details when it comes to their service. He said:

“We pay attention to the tiny details from a service standpoint. Jan Carlzon’s Moments of Truth is how I operate my business! It’s about a culmination of the little things, like the way you park or approach the door, that is extremely important! We pay attention to every detail on every level.”

He told us that their mission is to provide the most outstanding service experience possible, and said that, in order to do that, they have made nation-wide connections and continually train their staff, even participating in international training. Bob said that they have traveled to Turkey, Greece, and Persia to best learn how to care for rugs from around the world.

Building Success By Paying Attention To The Details

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

“Do the simple things; do what you say you’re going to do, and communicate. Most problems can be averted with good communication. Be open, and practice honesty. Always try to grow and get better every day. Communicating and understanding your clients’ needs is of paramount importance.”


Congratulations to Carr’s Rug Cleaning for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and special thanks to Bob for taking the time to speak with us!
