A Where-To-Go, Who-To-Call Guide to Resources for Fishhawk Lake Homeowners

Gayle Rich-Boxman, Broker with Vernonia Realty

Your Gateway to the Lake!

It seems that whenever a question comes up as to who to use locally or within a reasonable cost/distance for many types of services, I get a call from clients both past and present. Where do you go to get a load of firewood? Who do you know that can repair/replace a roof?  Do you know anyone who can cut down a tree for me? Who do you use for pest control?  These are typical questions that come up.  I have compiled a list of resources that I add to as I find other companies, or small businesses that I’ve personally used or who have been pre-qualified by a homeowner in our community. If a question comes up that I can’t answer or don’t have a resource person for that particular need, I’ll either guide the person to someone who does know or call my office in Vernonia because they’ve been in business for over 25 years and can help me, too. I’ve been asked about real estate attorneys, granite experts, where the nearest hardware store is, local builders–you name it!


The following is a basic list of resources in alpabetical order according to the service provided. If you care to add to it, please send me an e-mail and I would be happy to share that information so long as you’ve used to resource or know someone from our Fishhawk Lake community who can recommend them.
