Your Pseudo Home Manual ~ Connecting You To Experts And Answers To Everything “Home”

Welcome To The Service Guide

Much like parenthood, homeownership doesn't come with a manual to help guide you through these responsibilities. Neither does care and maintenance of your autos, or certain areas of your health. Getting good at navigating your way through these critical responsibilities is typically learned as you go.

Think of The Service Guide as your pseudo-manual where you can get answers to your home, auto, and health related inquiries, learn what you need to know about projects and repairs encompassing more than 300 service categories, plus which local service providers could be the best fits to work with you when you need help.

Created in 2004, The Service Guide has become the #1 resource Twin Cities, Minnesota consumers turn to first and trust the most to get reliable, helpful information that makes homeownership just that much easier!
