Home Newsroom 100. Recommend the Best of Barrington

Because I’ve been writing this blog for two years and working as a Realtor much longer, people often ask me for recommendations, from top doctors to dog watchers, parks to pizza places, tailors to take-out. Newcomers and people who already live here are always looking for the best of the best and that personal endorsement that you won’t find in any phone book.  After all, isn’t it always better to get your hair cut by the hands of someone who comes highly recommended? I know I wouldn’t trust just anyone for advice about how to manage my money or care for my kids. I want to talk to one of the best.

To create a handy resource that we can share when asked, we’ve set up a new way to help spread the word about the people and places in the Barrington area making a positive difference in our lives, in big ways and in small.

For example, in considering a recent request for the name of a good pediatrician in Barrington, I offered our client a list of great options which includes my own kids’ doctor, Mary Collins.  She works with Pediatric Associates in Lake Barrington and Crystal Lake (MyPedsDoc.com) and I feel really thankful for her.

Dr. Collins has helped me get through my kids’ umpteen colds, coughs and fevers. I turn to her with some of my biggest questions about immunizations and how best to care for my children and, if it wasn’t for Dr. Collins, the potty training process would have killed me.  (By the way, stay tuned to read Dr. Collins’ top tips for potty training.  It’s a story I’ve been working on and it’s coming soon.)  If there’s a great doctor or another business, place or group in town that has earned your two thumbs up, we could use your help.

Starting today, we’ll be collecting your suggestions right here about the “Best of Barrington”. Whether it’s the best sledding hill, the best parks or the best places to watch the seasons change, we’d love your thoughts.  Which area doctors, restaurants, shops, salons or gyms would you most recommend?  What are your favorite events that happen locally and is there an organization that helps others that you want more people to know about? What about that person you turn to when you need great financial advice or an awesome teacher who has made a positive difference in your life?  Though I’ve crossed paths with a lot of people here in Barrington, I often have to ask around when someone calls looking for a referral. So I thought I’d try turning to you for help.

Are you still with me?  Cool.  Think about it for just a minute and please consider giving a shout-out to the people, places and organizations in town that you rave about.  We’ll start a list here at 365Barrington.com so you can also see who others recommend. And keep your eye on the “Best of Barrington” spotlight in the right sidebar of this website.  This is where we’ll begin to feature the people and places that come highly recommended here in Barrington.
