It’s that time of the year again! We are so excited to announce our newest class of Top Pros: the Top Pro class of July 2019!

Top Pros are among the most popular and highly rated pros on Thumbtack. Being named a Top Pro is a huge accomplishment. Less than 4% of all pros on Thumbtack currently qualify - quite an exclusive group!

If you've just been named a Top Pro, please introduce yourself! Reply to this thread with the name of your business and where you're based. 

We’d also love to hear your #1 tip for becoming a Top Pro, so that other pros can learn from your success. You can include your tip in your introductory post below, or consider uploading a video of yourself just like this one.

Congratulations again! We’re so proud of your hard work. And we hope you are, too.toppro_widget_2.png

TLF SERVICES (Ollie B Lashley). Congrats to all hardworking Top Pros. We all know that it’s not as near as easy as we make it look or seem, countless hours of hard work and dedication that goes unseen. Sacrificies and Commitment through the ups and downs... Never Wavering or Giving Up... Taking the Good with the Bad and continuing to Strive for Perfection... This honor is so much more than a badge, but an true acknowledgement Of all of the overlooked duties that actually build a Solid Top Pro.... Continued Success to All.... Hats off to another Amazing Year.... Blessings.....

Keep up the good work. I have been in the customer service industry for over 40 years successfully. I feel a customer wants someone they can trust. Someone who shows concern for what they say and will listen. Someone who sticks to details of their needs and follows up. Wishing you all the best.

Hello Everyone and congratultions to everyone who made it to the TopPro! 🙂 

I own Dance With Panache, a Latin Ballroom Dance Company and I guess making it here is a mix of a lot of things.

1. Top Most IMO: The best quality service and being attentive to what they really want. Be nice, genuine and be attentive, period. 

2. Friendly and personalized responses: When I do respond to my clients I dont respond with a standard response. Templates are a great start but I do modify them a lot to make them more personalized to what their originial questions and concerns were. 

3. Response Time: For the clients who contact me first and I want to accept the lead I get back to them as quickly as possible. 

4. Reviews: These definitely give you more credibility, so build more reviews. But mind well, your service should match the reviews you are eventually collecting. Reviews are not to trick clients to just get to you, but to give them an idea of what they can expect when they come to you and have a level of comfort already before they come to you. 

Overall, be nice, genuine, curteous and respecful and really look at each client from the perspective of helping them (not just making money) and there would be nothing stopping you 🙂 

Thank you for reading the long response whoever got to this point 🙂

Congrats to all of you!!! My name is Dewayne Clay and I own Amp’d Interiors in Memphis TN area. Thumbtack has really helped me grow my business and I get a lot of customers that love the platform. My business is mostly drywall,texture and paint but I end up doing a lot of other things for customers as well. If you treat each customer as if they are the top priority, take pride in your work and go the extra mile , do what you say you will do or do more (not less for sure) and be on time to do it and leave the place cleaner that when you arrived there’s no way that you can go wrong. Many different sites contact me all of the time but I gladly refuse them and do not need them. Thumbtack has been faithful to me since I started and with them, repeated customers and word of mouth I couldn’t handle more business.
Thanks Thumbtack and congrats to everyone again. It really shows that you care about what you do!!!👍

Hello, my company is called Temuco LLC, we are kitchen cabinet installers. I have received the news that we are Top pro again. But what does this mean? If I search google for installers of kitchens, the list that Thumbtack offers is not even sorted by quality !!! .... the first of the list has only 4.7 stars. Only in the fourth place is a Top Pro shown. If you want your business to go well, and ours goes well, at least put the top pro first !! ...

Foremost congratulations, to all who made it to this status with Thumbtack. As we all know the consistency and effort it takes to become a pro-fessional in your craft is not easy. My name is Aaron and I run Walker Fotografy LLC. a wedding and portrait photography business, in Indianapolis, IN. I started talking conflict photographs while deployed in Afghanistan and upon returning I started my business.

My one tip I have would be; look to make customers as happy as you would want to be if you were on the receiving side. The emotions you invoke are what bring new and existing customers. Tip for thumbtack be quick to respond 8/10 the first to respond get the job.

Good luck,
Aaron Walker

As one of the owners of Cable Guy Communications I know what dedication and determination it takes for todays small buisness owners to achieve success. Thumbtake provides its Pros with not just leads they give needed support to make sure we succeed. I think its super that they set the top pros apart giving us credit for going above and beyond for ever customer.

It is an honor to be part of this class of Thumbtack Top Pros!

I am an independent licensed massage therapist located in Colorado Springs, CO.  I joined Thumbtack in February this year and instantly made it my goal to become a Top Pro.  I believe the key to my success in this was a combination of excellent customer care, including quick responses and competitive pricing, as well as being as thorough as possible with the information in my profile.

Congratulations to you all!

If it were EASY~
It wouldn't be called 'Work'.
...and -Everybody- 'working' would be -The-Best-.
Being a Top-Grade provider of anything... Usually requires a sacrifice, or dedication, or experience, or drive... - -----SOMETHING...........
That makes you stand out from others, in your specific area.
---And often at a personal price.
One you are willing to pay, to achieve this result (with your customers & business).
(At times, ...a humbling experience)
