Tom Davidson (Appliance Exchange)

I've been using one of the best appliance repair guys in the business for about 20 years. His name is Tom Davidson and he is the owner of Appliance Exchange. He is extremely knowledgeable about stoves, refrigerators, dishwashers, washers and dryers and has diagnosed, repaired or replaced dozens of appliances for me over these many years in the property management business.

Tom will tell you if you're throwing good money after bad and his advice has ALWAYS proven to be solid. There's nothing he can't fix if it's fixable. Again, he will give you his opinion as to whether the part(s) for repair are worth the investment, all things considered.

Tom can be reached at 512-219-0770. Leave a message and he'll call you back.
Tell him I referred you.

Tadd Balfour

It may be the case that you know so many tech-savvy people that if you see a flicker on your hard-drive or watch your video stream turn to molasses, you can smile calmly with the surety that help is moments away. I'm not one of those people. And I certainly am not tech-savvy myself. To complicate matters, I have had terrible luck
bringing my computer to the variously advertised geeks, gurus and computer-repair stores that promise full and timely service.

Sometimes I think that going to a computer guru when a computer fever is about as effective as seeking cardiac treatment from a chiropractor.

Enter Mr. Tadd Balfour. I met Tadd through a businessman at a local cafe, learned he was a computer engineer and took his card thinking, "Well, we'll see."

Well, we did see. In an hour Balfour found the three or four pesky add-ons that were throwing sand in the transmission of my computer and axed three or four nasty viruses waiting only for my unschooled prompt to melt my memory into beeswax.

I really appreciated the work, but more importantly, I appreciated Tadd's attitude toward me, the Luddite down the street. Now, to be clear, if you are a person who speaks computer-eze, Tadd will reply in that recondite tongue. But if you're just trying to save your spreadsheet, preserve your family photos or polish that memoir Hollywood can't wait for, Tadd will find your problem, fix it without condescension at a cost much lower than cardiac surgery. Lower, in fact, that some chiropractors.

My computer is now starting tons faster, running more quickly and I can read my e-mail in other-than HTML format. Whatever that means.

I recommend this young man without reservation. Great job, Tadd. Thanks

Longtime Cherrywood home owner and resident Tadd Balfour is your go-to guy. Having read a May 2010 rec by another
Cherrywooder(see NNet Msg# 33812), I contacted Tadd who straightened out my Dell
laptop problems for a fair price and in a timely fashion. So contact Tadd --
you'll be glad you did!

I used Tadd Balfour last week and liked him a lot.

Our laptop is no longer "acting up" once Tadd took care of it.

Juanita Ross’s Daughter, Yolanda

Juanita Ross, right around the corner...I have had my taxes prepared there by her daughter, Yolanda, for the last 13 years or so and they were fairly involved, including split ownership, division of rental income and expenses, etc.? Yolanda is very thorough and I have lots of trust invested in her knowledge. She is very reasonable and pleasant to work with.? I think she actually was voted best tax preparer in the Austin Chronicle this last go round.
