When You Need An Expert – Get A Recommendation – For your Car or Your Realtor

It's a cold crisp Saturday morning and I, along with several other people are patiently waiting for our cars at my favorite car repair company.  As a woman, cars are a mysterious animal.  I know enough to put gas in the tank and to make sure that the oil is changed every 3,000 miles as recommended by my mechanic.

I learned a long time ago that finding a good car mechanic is just as important as finding the right man to marry perhaps even more important.  As a Realtor, having a functioning car is more important than having the right business card. Finding an expert that you can trust whether getting your car repaired or finding a good realtor sometimes requires asking other people for recommendations.

Finding one that you can trust can be an issue for man or woman.  Despite thinking that all men know cars I now know that many are just as clueless as I am, perhaps even worse since in my youth I was able to change the oil on my 1979 Camaro but that is another story for another blog post.  If you live in the Aurora/Naperville area I highly recommend bringing your car to "Muffler & Brake Man" located at 17 S. Route 59th across from the Westfield Shopping Center, a.k.a. "Fox Valley Mall".

This Saturday, the place was extremely busy with people bringing their cars in for oil changes, brake work and even a sunroof that was stuck in the open position which in this Midwest winter's 20 degree weather is not recommended.

Hitesh Patel, the owner, is personable and fair.  He will tell you what is wrong and how much it will cost you to repair it without any long delays.  His workers are quick and courteous.  It's not a fancy place but you know that the work will be done right and will be guaranteed.  I have been bringing my cars here for years and would not consider going anywhere else.Owner Working
