Utah’s Top Rated Local® Senior Living Communities Award Winner: Cottonwood Creek

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Cottonwood Creek is a 2018 award winner for senior living communities in Utah!

Are you looking for the right senior care option for yourself or a loved one in Salt Lake City? If so, look no further than Cottonwood Creek, the area leader in senior living.

Cottonwood Creek has earned dozens of online reviews with an average rating of 4.81 stars, an incredible Rating Score™ of 92.07 and a 2018 Top Rated Local award for being ranked among the top 10 senior living communities in all of Utah!

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

“…To say the staff was fantastic was an understatement! They were attentive, sincere, professional and, most of all, protective and loving to our mother, even when she made it difficult to do so. They treated us like we were family and went the extra mile in everything they did. To be in such a supportive environment during our mother’s passing made the grief process much easier to deal with. Their kindness did not stop there. After Mom passed, they sent our family beautiful flowers. My husband said, after eating in the dining room, that he is ready to move in. Thank you, thank you, thank you. We love you all and can’t thank you enough. Your parent or loved one will be happy and well treated here.” – K.J.

Not Your Average Senior Living Community

At Cottonwood Creek, they focus on six different dimensions of care: emotional, occupational, physical, social, intellectual and spiritual. All of their activity programming is developed around these six dimensions, and they tailor their care to the interests of their residents so that they can get plugged into the activities they are most interested in.

The team at Cottonwood Creek is committed to creating and maintaining a wonderful home for their residents. The community at Cottonwood Creek is beautiful, and the campus is incredibly well-kept.

Another thing that sets Cottonwood Creek apart from other senior living communities is how they take care of their staff. By providing good benefits and pay to their staff, they keep them happy, which leads to better care for their residents.

We asked Trevor Fuhriman, the Executive Director of Cottonwood Creek, why he does what he does and how he works to make the world a better place. This is what he had to say:

“I’ve done this for many years because I love building relationships, working on and establishing cohesive teams, problem-solving and creating the best possible experience for my residents. You have to love working with people and creating a unique and fun atmosphere.”

Building Success With a Warm Environment and Great Partnerships

When asked what Cottonwood Creek’s secret to such a strong online relationship is, Trevor credited it to the wonderful family members of their residents, the incredibly warm environment they’ve worked so hard to create for their residents and the partnerships they’ve developed with health and hospice agencies in the area.

Outside of building a solid online reputation, Cottonwood Creek works to grow by working with outside agencies as well as specialists, like nurses and geriatric specialists. They also get the word out about who they are and what they have to offer by being an active part of their community.

We asked Trevor what advice he has for other business owners looking to grow their business and build their online reputation. Here are his words of wisdom:

“You gotta start internally first. You have to create good care and good staff. Word of mouth is such a big part of this, so once you get a good core staff, you will get good residents. When all those pieces fall into place, positive reviews will come.”


Congratulations to the team at Cottonwood Creek for being a 2018 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Trevor, for taking the time to speak with us!

Utah’s Top Rated Local® Fitness Center Award Winner: BURN

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that BURN is a 2018 award winner, thanks to their impressive 96.00 Rating Score™ and the enthusiastic reviews (averaging five stars) they’ve received from their customers!

It takes a lot to stand out as a business in a place like Salt Lake City, and BURN is certainly no exception to that rule. Their facility is so beloved by their customers that dozens have taken to the internet to leave positive reviews. Here are two that we think really demonstrate what makes BURN special:

“I love BURN! It is a great place to go and get your sweat on. The instructors are very knowledgeable and teach amazing classes. You get a really personal touch here and it makes such a huge difference in helping you to achieve your fitness goals. The classes are great at BURN, they are challenging and rewarding but also fun! I recommend BURN to anyone who is interested in achieving better fitness and health in a very friendly, personal, and [familial] environment.” -Josh H.

“I have a bad back, which means I have to be very careful in how I exercise. Pilates at BURN is the best way for me to keep my core strong to support my back. I do not injure myself here because the instructors help me tailor the exercises to protect my back. This is an awesome place to go as you age (I’m 54!) to stay in shape. [I’ve] been doing it for almost 3 years and I owe my size 4/6 pants to BURN! Love Steph and all the great instructors. They are well-trained and know their stuff! This place has a great non-judgmental and positive vibe. I always feel better about myself after attending a class.” -Suzanne D.

Not Your Average Fitness Center

Co-owners, Walker and Stephanie Willey, took a moment to speak with us about their business’ reputation and their approach to what they do.

The team at BURN focuses on the entire body as a moving organism, striving to work the entire body. They keep their class sizes small so that each person gets personal trainer style attention. It’s important to Walker and Stephanie that each instructor is able to watch each individual’s form and provide hands-on instruction.

Building Success Through Results That Speak For Themselves

Any business that wants to be an award winner and serve their customers well needs to understand the importance of results. Walker and Stephanie’s advice to other business owners? “Be authentic, which has been our approach. Produce results, it will carry through and shine bright. Stick to what you believe in. Don’t try to overdo yourselves. We have three basic classes and we scale to all individual levels.”

Thank you for taking the time to speak with us, Walker and Stephanie. Congratulations to the team at BURN for being a 2018 Top Rated Local award winner!


For a great workout in Salt Lake City, we highly recommend BURN.

“I’ve been to a lot of barber shops here in St. George, and I must say, there isn’t another barber shop in town that even comes close. Jeff and Sam both do an amazing job. The shop is always clean and organized. I will keep coming back to Sam and Jeff for all of my haircut needs. Keep up the good work. Thanks, guys” – Dalton G

Not Your Average Barber Shop

The team at Barbers of Green Gate is all about reclaiming the role of a barber as an essential voice in a man’s life. Every culture has its own moral fiber network, and at Barbers of Green Gate, they believe that barbers can play a role in that network. Sam, the shop owner, had this to say on the matter:

“Barbershops are more than just a place to get a haircut; they are one of the last public forums to really talk about things.”

Sam says that they love being an integral part of the community at Barbers of Green Gate. Both Sam and Jeff — a trained barber at Barbers of Green Gate — are pastors, and they want others to know about their love for Jesus Christ.

“I’ve worked with Pro Auto Care for about the past two years now, and they have provided, without comparison, the best auto repair services I’ve ever experienced. They are honest, down to earth and knowledgeable. I’ve had them provide preventative services as well as diagnostic, and I’ve never been disappointed. Prior to finding Pro Auto Care, I tried several places in town; most of them were fine, but these guys are really top notch.” – Sterling S

Not Your Average Auto Shop

According to Alec Ferguson, the service manager at Pro Auto Care, their 30 years of industry experience and knowledge are what really sets them apart from other auto shops in Utah.

Another thing that makes Pro Auto Care different is their commitment to ensuring that their customers are comfortable with the diagnosis and understand what needs to be done. Best of all, they never try to sell repairs their customers don’t need, and they also never charge their clients diagnostic fees.

We asked Alec why they do what they do at Pro Auto Care and how they work to make the world a better place. Here’s what he had to say:

“We know this industry, and there are some [shops] that are shady. We provide an honest and straightforward option. When we can take care of the customer’s car and get them on the road, so they can go to work and take their kids to school, then we know we have done a good job.”

Building Success Through Honesty

Alec credits Pro Auto Care’s strong online reputation to the team’s commitment to always being completely honest with their customers.

That honesty, as well as the next-level service they provide for their customers, has helped them grow their business largely through referrals; although, they have done some advertising on the radio and on their website.

We asked Alec what advice he has for other business owners looking to grow their business and build their online reputation. Here are his words of wisdom:

“Listen to your customers, and realize that making money isn’t the most important thing. Do your job, and be honest about it.”


Congratulations to the team at Pro Auto Care for being a 2018 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Alec, for taking the time to speak with us!

She always made sure to ask me in detail what I needed work on and make sure I was comfortable!” -Meghann M

“Being brand new to massages, I was extremely satisfied with my first experience at Mind Your Body Massage. Lisa asks questions that will help her make sure that you have a comfortable session. From a heated blanket to a pleasing head massage, I was very relaxed, comfortable, and well taken care of. I received the hour-long session along with aromatherapy, and it was wonderful. I will definitely recommend her to friends!” – Ariana J.

“Lisa’s massages are five-star. She is a master at melting my tense areas away with her magical touch, using the perfect amount of pressure. Thanks to Lisa, I am more in tune with my mind and body and now that I know what a massage is supposed to feel like, I can’t get enough!” -Karissa S.

Utah’s Top Rated Local® Painting Contractor Award Winner: EmeraldPro Painting of Salt Lake City

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that EmeraldPro Painting of Salt Lake City is a 2018 award winner due to their phenomenal online reputation!

“We had a great experience with Seth and his painters. We had them power wash and paint our house while we were out of town. When we got back, Seth wanted to come over and go over the job with us to make sure it was to our satisfaction. Honestly, we really had to look hard to find anything, and what we found was extremely minor. We can’t say enough good about this company. We’ll use them again for any painting projects we have!” -Debbie R.

“Seth and his crew are true professionals. I had several rooms that needed attention, some more complex than others, but the end result is amazing. Every room showed special care was taken to maximize the best possible outcome. I’m having them back to paint my massive-sized fence in the spring!” -Sue P.

These are just two of the many positive reviews EmeraldPro Painting of Salt Lake City has received, contributing to their exemplary 93.00 Rating Score™. Because of that high Rating Score, they’ve scored a spot in the top five painting contractors in the whole state of Utah.

Not Your Average Painting Company

Seth Watson, the owner of EmeraldPro Painting of Salt Lake City took a few minutes to speak with us about his business and what drives him and his team to be one of the very best at what they do. “I thoroughly enjoy working with people and helping them to improve their house. Some people are painting to sell their house, but most of the time, they are painting because they want their house to have a certain feeling about it.” He said, “They want it to feel fresh or new or modern, and that’s always the most fun part — being able to provide them a living space that they can enjoy and be proud of.”

Because of their awesome online reputation, Seth and his team have been able to gain a ton of business just through word of mouth. “Online is one form of word of mouth. If you don’t know someone that is a good painter, you go online and you look at reviews. Word of mouth is probably the strongest way to get work, but when other people rate you online, that’s a type of word of mouth, where they’re voicing their opinion publicly.”

Building Success Through Work That Speaks For Itself

We’re sure you want to know EmeraldPro of Salt Lake City’s secret to success. We certainly did! Turns out, it’s relatively simple and all about customer service. When we asked Seth, he said, “I don’t know if it’s necessarily a secret it’s just treating your customers the way they should be treated and doing quality work that kind of speaks for itself.”


Congratulations to the team at EmeraldPro of Salt Lake City for being a 2018 Top Rated Local award winner!

Utah’s Top Rated Local® Garage Door Contractor Award Winner: Wagner Garage Doors

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Wagner Garage Doors is one of the top five garage door contractors in the entire state of Utah!

A good online reputation is hard to build. But, if you do right by your customers, it can happen. That’s what happened to Wagner Garage Doors. Their commitment to service has earned them phenomenal reviews like this:

“I backed into my garage door this afternoon while it was still opening and bent the door/tweaked the rollers in their tracks, therefore jamming my door halfway open. I called Wagner Garage Doors at 4:45 pm and Richard still came within the hour and fixed it! He saved us and on super short notice. Will definitely call him again for any garage door needs. I highly recommend!” -Carrie H.

And this:

“It’s great to find an honest contractor who is so knowledgeable and affordable! Our garage door wouldn’t close at the end of the night, we noticed that one of the cables came off a drum, so we released it from the opener and forced it closed. In the process, a wheel fell off one of the sides and the door came off the tracks. We had another repair company come six months ago who told us our door would need to be replaced soon so we were fully expecting to buy a new door today. Richard came and fixed all three problems in under 45 minutes and explained that not only is our door in good condition overall, but so is our opener. We highly recommend Wagner Garage Doors!” -Alicia R.

And, these reviews have earned them a well-deserved 95.39 Rating Score™ and a 2018 Top Rated Local award.

Not Your Average Garage Door Company

We spoke with Richard, the owner and operator of Wagner Garage Doors, about his awesome online reputation. During our conversation, it became abundantly clear that he is not only very good at what he does, but that his team’s customer service is superb. He got into this business because he likes working for himself and, after realizing that many businesses are focused on rushing jobs, he could start one that really allowed him to take the time necessary to take care of his customers. He has now been in the garage door business for more than a decade, giving him the expertise and experience to give his customers clear information and ensure that the job gets done right, the first time.

Building Success Through Unbeatable Customer Service

Want to know the Wagner Garage Doors secret to success? We did too. So, we asked. According to Richard, the secret is to “Treat others the way he wants to be treated. Don’t sell folks what they don’t need.” This level of dedication to giving customers the best has proven to be a massive asset to the Wagner Garage Doors team’s online reputation.

Richard’s advice to other business owners? “Take your time, build integrity, and do good work.”


Congratulations to the team at Wagner Garage Doors for being a 2018 Top Rated Local award winner!
