Dr. Matt Bendall

Yesterday, a mere six days after my little dog Bubbles died suddenly, we had to say goodbye to Tatum the Blue Heeler. Though her imminent passing was not unexpected, on the heels of the traumatic loss of Bubbles it was difficult. This difficulty was eased tremendously when Dr. Matt Bendall, a mobile vet, came to the house to see Tatum off in the comfort of her own surroundings, being held by people who loved her so much.

Dr. Bendall does well-visits, too. He is compassionate, thoughtful, not in a hurry, and is ready to really talk about your dog/cat's health and options. He lives very nearby and would love more Cherrywood clients.

If you're looking for a vet, I highly recommend him. (And I also owe a debt of gratitude to Brykerwoods Vet-- they took great care of Bubbles at the end, and also referred me to Dr. Bendall.)

Chem-Free Organic Pest Control

They sealed up all entry points and then have a warranty. So far we have paid for the one visit. And we pay $50 every so often for them to check things. And then they will come out whenever you have another one for free. They've been out 3 times for trappings so far.

Bright Spot Painting & Remodeling

I highly recommend Bright Spot Painting & Remodeling-- they can fix the drywall, and also take care of all painting needs; they are professional, reasonably priced, very clean and a pleasure to work with. They just painted my exterior and I love it! Contact Janette for a free estimate.

They have painted several homes in Cherrywood!

Martin Guido

Without reservation, I recommend Martin Guido. He has painted several exteriors for me, as well as hundreds of interiors over the years for the properties I manage.
Martin also does excellent drywall repair and texture matching.

Martin can be reached on his cell at 512-496-2358. Leave him a message and tell him I referred you.

Dave Eyre Custom Hardwoods

I wanted to share with y'all a recommendation I have for a hardwood floor company that refinished our 65+ year old oak floor.

The name of the company is Custom Hardwoods, and the owner is Dave Eyre. We couldn't be any happier with the awesome job they did. We thought that our floors were done for, and now they look brand new! It took less than 5 days, the mess was all cleaned up, and Dave and his crew were fun to talk to and get to know during that short time.

We've got many many compliments on the "new" floor, and it has added so much value to our home. With so many folks asking who did the work, i thought it would be good to share with the group.

Eric Yost

Thanks for the recommendations -- Eric Yost is the go-to guy! He will hand build, paint and hang, and he's starting today. We contacted him through Facebook and he was prompt to respond. He quoted us almost exactly the same price as ones we found online commercially made; except we get the pleasure of having it hand made by someone local, don't have to pay shipping, and don't have to install it ourselves. By far the better deal.

Aus Tex Appliances

Yesterday I went to Aus Tex Appliances in South Austin and purchased a new Speed Queen washer. Aus Tex is a local, family-owned business, and they are very knowledgeable. The washer comes with a 3-year manufacturer's warranty, and is an American-made machine. My plumber, Ed Pepper, installed the washer and I ran one load while he was there. I love the machine! It only took about 20 minutes for the cycle. The machine is very quiet and efficient. I highly recommend Aus Tex for your appliance needs.

Appliance Exchange

I always and without hesitation or reservation HIGHLY recommend Tom Davidson, owner of Appliance Exchange. Tom has a high degree of knowledge and ethics and his prices are very fair. He has continued to earn my trust for the past 20+ years.

Austin Custom Screens

I've used Austin Custom Screens twice and I love them. Nice, prompt, and reasonably priced.
