Trusted Regina welcomes our first Trusted Regina Auto Dealer and our first Trusted Regina Kitchen Countertop business to the Regina directory

Trusted is thrilled to be bragging about 2 more fantastic Trusted partners who have passed the strict verification process with flying colors, they are the most recent of 75 businesses in Saskatchewan  to be given the thumbs up by and , and we have many more great businesses going through the process to follow them and we hope to have at least another 12 businesses live before the end of won't be long before we hit the magic 100!

 Lets tell you about both of our new Trusted partners , starting with our first Trusted Regina Auto dealer:

Mercedes Benz of Regina

What a prestigious Auto Dealer to start the Regina category..and they certainly deserve the recognition and the reputation that they have worked hard to achieve. Mereced Benz of Regina is  very impressive in everyway, from the beautiful spacious galss building on Broad Street filled with vehicles you would love nothing more than to park on your own driveway at the warm and friendly staff that don't have the ' aloofness' that is tangible when walking into some higher end car dealerships we have been into in the past.. the staff are professional and very approachable , they make no assumptions about you when they walk in  ( and believe us, the vehicle that we pulled up in was NO Mercedes !), as you browse around they make sure you have all your needs attended to without being ' pushy'... which is refreshing.

 When you think of the Mercedes brand certain shapes, colors and words flood the mind , and these all come together just as you had imagined them when you click onto the Mercedes Regina Website    LUXURY-ICON-CLASSIC are the words that flash across the homepage, that's adorned with sleek images... Mercedes-Benz of Regina's automotive expertise is a product of their sustained interest in industry trends and characteristics. They feel privileged to share the latest news, promotions and events with you and hope the information will enhance your shopping experience. As you know, there are many new cars from which to choose, and they strongly believe an informed customer is the best customer.

Rick the owner is often in to greet loyal and new clients alike, he is a very respected and successful business man in the city , and he ensures that the integrity of his companies mission statement is carried through in each department and throughout every interaction and transaction with their clients and potential clients from beginning to end.  This is clearly proven when you read their listing on the Regina directory here , you will notice the outstanding testimonials from the clients that we surveyed , 12 out of 10 is always a good indicator when you ask someone to rate a business out of 10! What every single client told us was that the relationship just began with the first sale didn't end fact it got better,  as every interaction afterwards has been faultless ..wether with the service department, the shuttle drivers, the managers, or the owner himself ..they are all invested in your satisfaction. It makes us want to go and mystery shop them to experience it for ourselves..perhaps that means we can take one of those fancysports cars out for a test drive ... Welcome Mercedes Benz of Regina..our first Trusted Regina Auto and all of your staff are setting a highstandard for all that follow you!

P.S. Rick, if you want to give us one of these SLK 2012's for a month or so ( too icy after ) we would be OK with that!



CNG Stone Products

Another wonderful addition to the Trusted Regina Directory is CNG Stone Products , they are situated on Scarth Street and are open 7 days a week ( Sunday by appointment ) to better serve you ..we are all so busy today and having weekend hours and flexibility is great ...Scott Tresek, the owner, has a great personality and it is obvious that he sincerely cares about his fact when Renee and Sara from Trusted were in  presenting to him, we discussed what is expected of a Trusted partner , and when we were reading through the 5 Trusted Guarantees he was nodding along furiously ..." thats how we run this business" he said "I couldn't sleep at night if I felt a client was let down or unhappy with me,I really couldn't" ...Renee and I looked at each other and smiled ..we can always tell a Trusted business when we witness sincerity like that. is amazing how many of our Trusted partners would have said exactly the same thing,and we knew then that CNG Stone defintely belonged on . However after contracts are signed every business has to go through the verification / application procedure ..which is a pass or fail ...once we started speaking to CNG Stones Products we knew that they were going to pass easily....funny the first client we called gave them a 12 out of 10 ..same as Mercedes.. How fitting that the listings go live on the same day and share the same blog! Cllck on the listing here to read Janice Cain's testimonial and the other 4 that we added to the listing ...difficult to choose which ones to use when they are all so great!

The bottom line here is, that CNG stone tick all the boxes when it comes to providing countertops.... kitchens, bathrooms at home or at work..they have a VAST selection to choose from, they know all the answers to your questions, the showroom and their attractive and well laid out website give you inspiration, ideas and choices to suit any project you could throw at them..the boss is great, the staff are friendly, skillful, helpfull and hard working and all together that equals a great experience for YOU the consumer...that is what Trusted is all about ..Happy customers..NO risks and a positive , stressless buying experience! Thats why and truly are ' The Smart and Simple Choice' when it comes to a Directory we offer Safe and Trusted choices to all GUARANTEED!

Here is a recent CNG stone Product job to admire for yourself...NICE kitchen!! Welcome to Scott and the CNG team ..we are proud to have you as a Trusted Regina Partner!

Trusted brags about our first Trusted Regina Salon. Welcome Shear Escape Salon and Spa to the Trusted family!

Reginas Trusted business directory  is taking on a life of it's own, as the 2 trusted consultants Renee and Michelle find their feet and follow the many nominations and recommendations that have started to flow in on a regular basis. It is very reminicent of how started gaining momentum in April and May before it's May 30th media launch. The Trusted team are really looking forward to providing truly safe and trusted business directory options to the residents of both cities and beyond for years to come!  

The Trusted businesses who we have on board all share comminalities, they all really care about the communities they live in , and the owners wouldn't be able to sleep at night if they felt any of their clients had been left feeling anything but totally satisfied with how the they are dealt with at every stage of their transactions...our latest official Trusted partner is certainly no exception to that rule..we are really eager to brag about Candyce and her amazing  'A Team' at Shear Escape Salon & Spa ..our first Trusted Regina Salon.


 We had heard SO MANY wonderful things about Candyce, the owner of Shear Escape ..that to be honest when we met her we couldn't believe how YOUNG she was to have done so much impressive stuff ( and to have really impressed so many really impressive ladies who had nominated her!) ...Candyce has a warm gentle character, with an easy smile, and she has the great gift of not having to talk loudly to get your attention..she is obviously a very saavy young business woman ( with awards to prove it), but she defintely hasn't stepped on anyone to get where she is ..she clearly works very hard and you can see she inspires a great deal of loyalty from the team of trendy, artistic , happy staff that work at the salon, which is situated in the strip mall next to Earls on Albert.

Candyce leads from the front and is invested in the sucess of every single one of her team.....if  you are looking for a salon that is up on all the latest trends and fashions, without being pretentious then Shear Escape is made for you! On the few occasions we were in the salon we observed Men with kids getting cuts together, older ladies, young college students and sharp suited business men and women all enjoying their time there, and emerging looking fabulous....The hours are GREAT too for those of us that work between 9 - 5 , as they are open Mon- Thursday 9am till 9pm ..Friday 9-6pm and Sat 9-5pm!

After hearing that one of the girls that works there is famous for ' the best head massage in town' , Sara the Trusted founder ( who apprecaites a good head massage) HAD to see if it measured up to previous head massages she had got around the world.....YES YES YES is the answer ....she didn't want to remove her head from the wash basin!  

 We could have written pages and pages of clients testimonials on the listing ( which you can check out here ) , but we managed to edit them down to just 4 Laughing..the reason being , is that we wanted to tell people how much more Shear Escapes does ...They have a program for empowering young women in partnership with the YWCA called ' Girlspace initiative ' involvement and ' giving back' is very important to Candyce ...and you can see that only adds an even better atmosphere to the Salon as a whole can't help but feel the positive VIBE ...what a great place to spend a few hours getting a new look and soaking it all in!  

It's easy to see why Candyce and the team at Shear Escapes are the latest recipients of ' The Thumbs up' from ..we know you will not be disappointed...try them out once and you will be a client for life..what a great addition to the Trusted Regina family and what a fabulous standard is set for the salon category in Regina! Check out their website if you want to book, see what services they offer or to see some great pics and more information on their well designed site!

Here is a pic of Candyce...and underneath ..the Team ..we are so thrilled to promote you and endorse you deserve it!

As Summer nights in Saskatchewan start to feel cool, so the business community begins to re focus on the busy fall and year ahead. Trusted consultants in Regina and Saskatoon have been busy all Summer seeing potential clients and chatting to them about the Trusted philosophy and why they should consider their ' Trust Factor ' and ' reputation' as the intangible asset that will solidify their brand in their local market.

 Trusted is proud to annnounce we have 73 of the 120 Trusted Saskatoon listing opportunities filled ( not all live yet, but all have been verified) and 12 of the 40 categories are full ( we just offer 3 options to the end user, which makes their lives much easier) , plus additional Trusted businesses who have banner ads ( Tourism Saskatoon, Bateman Jewellers and Kreepy Kritterz are all TRUSTED) and are held to the same standards as our other partners..thereby providing the Saskatoon public a wonderful choice of Trusted businesses. Trusted Regina is really gathering momentum too..with fantastic businesses coming on board every week...with quite a few of our Saskatoon partners who have offices in Regina going in both markets!

Sara Wheelwright (Trusted founder) has spent the last week or so personally visting Saskatoons Trusted partners sharing the impressive analytic data from the first quarter , and sharing success stories. .. there are some wonderful results! The Trusted advertising partners are all having a great year, and it is a pleasure to be a part of their success..truly these businesses were already doing a great job long before Trusted came along..all Trusted really did was find them for YOU the people that need their services and want to have a positive experience with companies that you choose to spend money with!

The 2 businesses that went live last week are definitley both extremely worthy of the ' Thumbs up from Trusted' , lets tell you who they are and why we selected them to be our Trusted Partners in Saskatoon in the categories of ' Vets and Pets Saskatoon' and Bathrooms Saskatoon'...


Our final ( of 3 ) listing in the Trusted Saskatoon Bathrooms category is Kitchen and Bath Classics, and this really rounds off this category in a very good fact the 3 businesses listed really are complimentary to each other and together they meet any and all your bathroom needs! You can rest assured that you will be well taken care of from the very moment you walk into the luxurious Kitchen & Bath Classics showroom on 51st Street . Their showroom consultants will give you their undivided attention and make your experience lasting and memorable, while simplifying the process of choosing the perfect fixtures for your dream bathroom. Wether it's for a new home that you are building ...or simply for a new look in your home,  the Showroom Manager Lori and her team are experts and really care about your needs and requirements..check out the listing here for some testimonials that Trusted were given from happy clients when we surveyed them for proof of their awesome service!

They even have a set consultation process that makes sure nothing is left to chance:

The Consultation Process:

 Before Your Consultation Once you have made an appointment, consider the following before your visit:

  • Bring your home plans – The Showroom consultants are well-acquainted with building specifications and can suggest your best options.

• Know your allowance – Perhaps your builder has established an allowance and they will keep that in mind as they make suggestions.

  • Bring magazines with styles you like – You will encounter a wide variety of choices, from contemporary to traditional, from luxurious to functional. Having an idea of your tastes will allow your consultant to guide you in the right direction.

• Bring colour/tile/cabinet samples – It is important that your consultant knows what to work with.

During Your Consultation Your consultant will show you products that fit your needs or those that your builder has specified. If alternative products are chosen, he or she will contact your builder to determine whether additional labor costs will be incurred as a result. Once the product list is finalized, you will then come in for a formal review. They handle the rest!!

The parent company of Kitchen & Bath Classics is Wolseley. This is a great advantage as Wolseley is The Worlds number one distributor of Heathing and Plumbing products. However the company's roots were actually founded in Australia when it was one of the first companies to produce a mecahnical sheep shearing machine of all things !! Click Here to read the fascinating history of the company, it really is a great story! Wolseley Canada is proud to support the communities in which we all live and work. Two of the ways Wolseley does this is as a National Sponsor for Special Olympics Canada, and through Habitat for Humanity.

Welcome Kitchen and Bath classics..we give you the ' Thumbs up'






WE are very proud that our 1st listing in Vets and Pets Saskatoon and our first Trusted Vet is Cumberland Veterinary Clinic. The Cumberland Veterinary Clinic has been a part of the Saskatoon community for over 20 years. They design each preventative medical program to suit the needs of their client and patient. Cumberland Veterinary Clinic offers a wide range of services, including: preventative medicine, surgery, internal medicine, veterinary dentistry, weight management programs, emergency care, nutritional consultations, diagnostic services, and much more. They want to be there for you from the first moment your new puppy or kitten arrives to the final sad moments when you have to say goodbye to your cherished friend.

The staff at the Cumberland Veterinary Clinic consists of the two owners: Dr. Magda Szajcz and Dr. Judy Currie and their veterinary associate Dr. Terri Chotowetz. The Veterinary Technologists: Katie Smale and Raeanne Thomson. Veterinary Assistants: Christie Braaten and Ashley Shannon. Veterinary Office Manager: Janet Hofos and Veterinary Office Assistant: Jillian Wurtz.

And of course, Gem, the clinic cat, the REAL boss.

From the moment you make your appointment on the phone you can sense that these people are ' in it ' for the animals and really truly care. From the cheery and bright receptionists to the friendly knowledgable assistants, it is obvious that they love what they do and where they work..there is a real tangible family feel to the practice...and that can only be a positive thing for your family pet to sense, as they generally aren't fans of making a trip to the vets, as it normally means they are sick or due a shot! The attitude and atmosphere is mostly due to the two owners Dr Magda and Dr Judy's influence and we can't think of better hands to place the care of your cherished family pet in!

Welcome Cumberland Veterinary Clinic, Trusted is thrilled that you choose to invest in your reputation and we give you ' The Thumbs up'. Here is a link to their listing
