“We love Visiting Angels!! Since she stopped driving a few years ago, this service has allowed my grandmother to maintain independence and dignity. From help with even the smallest household tasks to overnight stays after an illness, I highly recommend Visiting Angels!” -Presley J.

Not Your Average Home Health Care Company

Lori Windal, the administrator of Visiting Angels, took some time to chat with us about the business’ awesome online reputation.

First and foremost, we wanted to know how Lori and her team stand out from their competitors. She said, “We have a lot of experience within our office — we have a CNA, I’m an RN, and we have four others that are very experienced within healthcare. Our owner, Darren, is local; he and his family live here. We are committed to making sure the elderly are taken care of, and work with Veterans Affairs to make sure our veterans are taken care of. We work hard in recruiting our caregivers to make sure they are trained well and do an extensive background check, an extensive orientation, and ongoing training.”

Lori and the other members of the Visiting Angels team take immense pride in helping others. “Our mission is to be the community’s choice in personal assistance. The whole reason the owner bought this business is because he saw a need for the elderly population to be taken care of,” Lori told us. “He experienced this need with his father. Having that passion is important to him, and it’s important to me also. We make that one hour visit with someone the best hour. A lot of our clients don’t see anyone except our caregivers all day. We are able to give families peace of mind and take care of their loved ones when they aren’t able to.”

Building Success By Focusing On Care

According to Lori, the Visiting Angels secret to success is their passion for their work. She told us, “We have a passion to make sure the people in our community are taken care of.

The following is Lori’s advice for other businesses that are working on their online reputation:

“Communication is key with our clients as well as our caregivers and staff. We do have seven core values; one of them is cultivating grace.”


Congratulations to the team at Visiting Angels for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Lori, for taking the time to speak with us!

“My grandpa recently passed and I’m writing this to give praise to Leann Brooks and Visiting Angels of San Angelo. Leann oversaw the caretakers that were with my grandfather for these past few years, they were courteous, friendly and hardworking. With our family living in WI, communication would seem difficult, but that was not the case! Leann, as well as Logan and the other angels, went over the top to keep my mom in the loop. [I am] planning to move my mom down here in 20 years to be cared for by this team because they are so amazing!” – C.T.

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

Not Your Average Home Health Care Providers

We were excited to learn all about how Visiting Angels has been able to build such an impressive reputation, so we sat down with the Director, LeAnn Brooks. Speaking with LeAnn highlighted the passion she has for her industry and for the people they serve.

We asked LeAnn what it is that makes Visiting Angels stand apart from their competitors. LeAnn spoke specifically about the pride she has in her team:

“I would put my team up against anyone. It’s really their mission, they love working with the elderly. They have compassion and a heart for the industry and it shows in the way they deal with the clients and their families.”

LeAnn went on to share with us that she feels our elders are so important, and she and her team work diligently to make a difference in their lives by supplying reputable caregivers, a good agency, and 24/7 availability. They work hard to make sure that the elderly and their families have some peace of mind and genuine dedicated love and care. LeAnn told us that families will often feel lost as to how to care for an elderly loved one, especially when faced with diseases like dementia or Alzheimer’s. She says it is a goal of Visiting Angels to offer comfort and independence for those families. LeAnn says:

“We work very hard to make a heart-connection with our clients and their families. We strive for excellence, we want to make sure they feel comfortable and can live independently at home.”

Building Success With Care

Visiting Angels has established a truly impressive online reputation. When we asked LeAnn about that, she let us know that most of their clients are not very tech savvy, so when they are getting good reviews online, it’s because someone had to be very impressed by their service.

“My best marketing is the fact that we go out and do a great job… Word of mouth and making sure that we live up to what we say we are going to do and providing excellent service is our best marketing.”

LeAnn went on to tell us that a part of the reason she is able to have such confidence in their service is due to the fact that Visiting Angels invests a lot of time and effort into training their caregivers. They make it a point to only hire the best.

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

“Building a heart-connection with [your clients] is why they go online and give [positive] reviews. The same thing goes for taking care of [your employees] as well. It’s all about making the heart-connection.”


Congratulations to Visiting Angels for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and special thanks to LeAnn for taking the time to speak with us!

Texas’ Top Rated Local® Limousine Service Award Winner: Deluxe Limousine & Transportation

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Deluxe Limousine & Transportation is a 2019 award-winning company!

“Hands down, the best limo service I’ve ever used -—the prices are fair; the vehicles are modern and clean; the chauffeurs are super friendly — what else can you ask for? They were prompt and got us to where we need to go safely.” -Henry D.

That’s just one of many outstanding reviews Deluxe Limousine & Transportation has received on verified review sites, making them one of the top 10 limo services in the state of Texas!

A One-of-a-Kind Limousine Service’s Secret to a Strong Online Reputation

We spoke with Moe Hosaini, the Managing Partner of Deluxe Limousine & Transportation, about the business’ incredible reputation online.

Of course, the very first thing we wanted to know was the secret is to Deluxe Limousine & Transportation’s success. “[It’s] listening to your customers and responding to them, even if they have a complaint,” Moe said. “No one is perfect, right? So, if something goes wrong, we listen to them and make sure to get the job done right. For example, if we screwed up or something happened, we either compensate them or comp them for another reservation or something to try to please them.”

It is important to the Deluxe Limousine & Transportation to give their customers the absolute best in limousine service. Moe said, “We run our business more like a corporation than like a mom-and-pop shop. We run a professional organization. We answer calls professionally; we make sure our chauffeurs are professional, that everyone speaks English and well-dressed, and that our vehicles are well-maintained.”

Making the World a Better Place By Keeping The Roads Safe

Moe and his team are highly dedicated to making sure that their community is well-served. “One of the reasons why we started this business was because, when I first moved to Texas, there was a lot of drinking and driving here in our area. It was horrible. There were barely any limo companies back then; it was just one or two. A lot of other limo companies were coming from Houston, so there wasn’t as much. So, we opened this to basically try to save lives and run a business, a profitable business. We are trying to keep drunk people off the roads. We are not doctors, but it’s our way of saving lives,” he said.

As an award-winning business owner, Moe knows what it takes to be a stand-out among your competition. Here’s his advice to other business owners:

“Honestly, customer service is the key for everything. To have good customer service, make sure you are prompt and responsive. One of the reasons it took me forever to respond to your email was because I was so busy taking care of my clients. Make sure you respond to your customers’ emails and calls, in a very professional manner, and be understanding of their situation and needs. You are providing a service. At the end of the day, people have a specific need. You gotta understand their needs and respond to their needs.”


Congratulations to the team at Deluxe Limousine & Transportation for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner!
