This site contains volunteer information provided by Portola Valley residents to help each other find better and more reliable service providers. Short URL to the site is: or

This site is setup without being indexed by Google Search Engine. Therefore only those with the link can access the site. Information on the site does not strictly follow internet security practices (users are not asked to share personal information either), so please do not share with others who are not Portola Valley residents.

Your last name and email, should you provide in submissions, will not be public information and will not be shared with anyone. The only person(s) who could see this data is the site administrator(s). If you are really concerned about your privacy, you do not need to provide real name or email; however, that might open doors for people to provide dishonest information. Hopefully residents will make this work because I know that many of us are frustrated with and have a hard time finding honest, competent, cost effective, and reliable service providers; and many of us are simply not handy around the house or do not have the time. So please join me in building up and maintaining this database to help each other.
