The first thing we wanted to know was what it is that makes Rasmussen Diamonds stand apart from their competitors. Kristi told us that Rasmussen is a family-owned and -operated business that has been a part of the community since 1990. They are more focused on building relationships than they are on making sales. Rasmussen, in addition to being active in the community, is also socially conscious and makes an effort to recycle and use recyclable materials or products that are locally made. She told us that their mission is to create the most gratifying shopping experience for their guests.

Building Success Through Community Involvement

Outside of building a strong online reputation, Rasmussen Diamonds has marketed and grown their business by staying involved in their community, which they do by donating to local charities, by partnering with local radio and newspapers, and by staying present on their social media pages.

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

“Practice integrity in all that [you] do.”

Wisconsin’s Top Rated Local® Funeral Homes & Services Award Winner: Prasser-Kleczka Funeral Home

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Prasser-Kleczka Funeral Home is a 2019 award winner for funeral homes and services in Wisconsin!

If you’re looking for a funeral home that will provide you with compassion and professionalism, look no further than Prasser-Kleczka Funeral Home in Milwaukee.

Prasser-Kleczka Funeral Home has received dozens of reviews with an average rating of 4.71 stars, earning them an awesome Rating Score™ of 93.13 and a 2019 Top Rated Local award for ranking among the top 10 funeral homes in all of Wisconsin!

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

“I have worked with Jeff on two funerals/cremations for very close family members. He is extremely professional, kind and compassionate. He was very patient with us every step of the way and made sure every detail was taken care of. In one case, the hospital was supposed to contact him by a certain time and didn’t, so he called us right away to make sure he could get our loved one in his care. A death in the family is such a difficult thing; Jeff makes sure we don’t have any additional headaches with the final arrangements. I can’t imagine working with anyone else. The funeral home itself is beautiful and comforting and everyone there is kind.” – T. S.

Not Your Average Funeral Home

We wanted to learn all about Prasser-Kleczka Funeral Home and their tremendous online reputation, so we took a few minutes to talk with Jeff Klezca, who is a Funeral Director and co-owns Prasser-Kleczka Funeral Home with his brother, Jay.

The first question we had for Jeff was what is it that sets Prasser-Kleczka Funeral Home apart from their competition in Wisconsin. Here’s his response:

“First and foremost we lend, what I believe to be, the most dignity and respect to the care of remains in the area. Our funeral directors are highly trained, and my brother and I are involved in every aspect of our businesses. Our families get the very best care we can provide at a reasonable price.”

Jeff went on to add:

“One of the most important things that we feel very strongly about is the value of prearrangement. We offer price-guaranteed funerals. When families pay ahead of time, there is a promise that is made that no one will ever have to pay more in the future. It makes it easier on the surviving family members. They don’t have to try to guess what the deceased wants; it’s already been determined.”

We also wanted to know what their mission is at Prasser-Kleczka Funeral Home and how they work to make the world a better place. Here’s what Jeff had to say:

“We want to provide the absolute best service to the families that we help, and to provide services at a reasonable price and offer an extremely high level of care and dignity to the person that has passed away.”

Building Success by Exceeding Expectations

When we asked Jeff how Prasser-Kleczka Funeral Home has gotten their name out there outside of building a powerful online reputation, he said:

“At this point, we have not solicited our families for reviews. We do try to meet and exceed their expectations when we serve them, so that they feel compelled to do so.”

Outside of building a powerful online reputation Prasser-Kleczka Funeral Home has gotten their name out there through outdoor advertising, direct mail, radio advertising — although they haven’t done it in a little over a year — and search engine optimization.

As an owner of an award-winning business, Jeff clearly 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:

“Roll up your sleeves, and be committed to your business, your profession and your clients. Sometimes, it is about working harder!”


Congratulations to the team at Prasser-Kleczka Funeral Home for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Jeff, for taking the time to speak with us!

We highly recommend Prasser-Kleczka Funeral Home in Milwaukee. Visit their website today!

Not Your Average Animal Clinic

The Office Manager at Wauwatosa Veterinary Clinic, Kerry Malak, generously gave us a few minutes of her time to tell us about this award-winning business and its tremendous online reputation.

The first question we had for Kerry was what is it that sets Wauwatosa Veterinary Clinic apart from their competition in Wisconsin. Here’s her response:

“We’re an AAHA-accredited, family-owned clinic with strong roots in our community. Beyond our goal of providing the highest standard of medical care to our patients, we also strive to treat each patient that walks through our doors as if they were our own and to make our clients feel like valued members of the healthcare team and members of our extended clinic family. Our team consists of dedicated professionals who love what they do and who care about people as much as they do pets.”

“Our team works really hard to provide exceptional care to our patients and their human families, so that our clients not only want to keep coming back to us for services, but they also want to recommend us to other pet parents in the community. As part of our commitment to excellent client service, we offer a number of different ways for clients to connect with us and to give us feedback on how we’re doing. And we actively solicit our client’s feedback and opinions by asking them to review us online after each appointment.”

When we asked Kerry how Wauwatosa Veterinary Clinic has gotten their name out there outside of building a powerful online reputation, she said:

“We sponsor or participate in various local events, such as charity dog walks, pet expos and farmer’s markets, and we also do advertising through social media and other online channels, such as Nextdoor.com. We also host charity drives during the year to support local rescues and other non-profit groups. Our best source of new clients, however, is our existing clients and keeping them happy and satisfied so they will refer us to others.”
