Ginny's RI House Hunt Blog: What do Plumbers do Best?

What do Plumbers do Best?

What do plumbers do best?  Well I can tell you that in Southern RI they take care of their Realtors problems with clients' homes in a snap without the crackle Adam Perry, the plumbing manand pop.  They fix the pipe that bursts on a cold night or a New Year's Eve catastrophe of no heat in the house - I know you are wondering what plumber comes out on New Year's Eve?  Hmmph, if I tell you I'll probably lose him to all the local RI homeowners who can't find a plumber to show up half the time!

Personally, as a North Kingstown Realtor I have been lucky to find and recommend my plumber, Adam Perry of Perry's Heating and Plumbing, for all sorts of jobs.  But besides being a good plumber he answers his cell phone when I call him.  Now that is different for a plumber wouldn't you say?  If he can't make it because of a squirrel problem in the hot water tank (believe it, it just happened), he will make it later that day or the next.  He prioritizes the emergencies and responds.  Whether it's a heating system, toilet overflowing, pipe burst, etc., he will take care of it and always with a smile.

Like he did on New Year's Eve when a house had no heat and the homeowner did not know what to do so they called me Ginny!  My trusty plumber Adam actually picked up his phone at 6 p.m. that evening when I called him and he was at the house within the hour.  Luckily he had the needed part for the furnace in his truck so the homeowner had heat that night.  I tell my clients his service is great and so is the service he gives me as another professional.  Now I am not going to tell you he is reasonable because listen he is a plumber, you will pay well for his services. 

So if you are in need of a plumber I guess I have to give my plumber guy up!  Adam can be reached at 401-640-8488 and make sure you tell him that Ginny Gorman sent you. What do plumbers do best?

Good morning, Ginny....don't ever lose HIS number....that's a better than good plumber.....

Posted by Barbara Todaro, Marketing Agent for The Todaro Team (RE/MAX Executive Realty ) about 9 years ago

Ginny, Great service providers are worth every penny!  When we find a good one, we hang on to that number until they retire!

Ginny, A good and reliable plummer is worth his weight in gold. And, given the price of gold these days, that says a lot.

Good morning Ginny,

Barbara is right don't ever loose his number! Having a great plumber to use and recommend is worth every penny they charge.

Barbara, no i've got it for good...a plumber who actually answers the phone..

Bliz, as a couple of mine have unfortunately been called up for active duty, i am looking for some others

Peter, yes it is the 40 pieces of gold or something like that!

Dorie, you want the work done well & the price is the price you just need to pay out...

Good morning, Ginny. What? A plumber that answers his phone? Now that is very unusual...

Hi Ginny - Adam Perry sounds like a gem! I agree with the others; when you find someone this good, you hang on to their numbers forever!

Great contractors are worth their weight in gold!  Does your plumber make housecalls to Virginia???

Posted by Gina Tufano, Ask Gina & Company, Northern Virginia Real Estate (Ask Gina & Company with Pearson Smith Realty) about 9 years ago

Ginny, it is always nice to have service technicians in our back pocket for the many times our clients need referrals!     He sounds like a keeper!

To have a professional for the task at hand is how we succeed and exceed our competitors efforts.  Adam's primary credential of answering his cell earns a spot on the team every time.  That's fabulous Ginny!   

Posted by Kevin J. May, Serving the Treasure & Paradise Coasts of Florida (Florida Supreme Realty) about 9 years ago

Michael...can you believe it!

Judy, it is one i share with clients when they are in a bind...he is responsive...thanks

Gina, perhaps he needs to get away...i'll ask him...

Joan, i have my list of vendors i use and tend to offer them out to clients who ask...

Hi kevin, it is important just like realtors who answer the phone , right

It really does take a team of people to sell real estate...having a plumber, handy man, painter, yard guy, etc. to fix, update, or tear down is a must in today's market.

Posted by Anita Clark, Realtor - Homes for Sale in Warner Robins GA (Coldwell Banker Access Realty ~ 478.960.8055) about 9 years ago

What a great recommendation, Ginny.  A plumber who answers his phone is a wonderful start.  Adam sounds like a keeper.

Posted by Jane Peters, Los Angeles real estate concierge services (Home Jane Realty) about 9 years ago

Anita, i am constantly updating them as makes all the difference in this job to have the handy, dandy Ginny dream team!

Jane, he is a good person and a good technician...that's what we

Ginny, we have favorite husband uses him on big jobs, and he always is available for small jobs and emergencies.

Posted by Ellen Caruso (Daniel Gale Sotheby's International Realty) about 9 years ago


THAT is the kind of plumber to have. Plumbing problems never seem to happen at a convenient time and having someone like Adam Perry is worth every penny you pay and much more. I would hate to share the name, too!


Posted by Jeff Dowler, CRS, The Southern California Relocation Dude (eXp Realty of California) about 9 years ago

Ginny, Don't you just LOVE having someone like this that you can trust for you and your clients?  Great post and I'm sure he is thrilled with the wonderful 'free' ad you've done for him!

Posted by Debe Maxwell, CRS, The right Charlotte REALTOR! ( | The Maxwell House Group | RE/MAX Executive | (704) 491-3310) about 9 years ago

Ellen, it is a wonderful thing to have a trusted professional who responds.

Jeff, he is good in his response as an ex-marine he is always there!

Debe, it is the best and yes, i do hate sharing him but if it helps him too I'm good with it..thanks

What a great endorsement!  My grandfather was a plumber.

I’m presuming that Mr. Perry is one of your Power Partners. If not, he should be.

Posted by Not a real person about 9 years ago

Russel, most definitely...he's very helpful but his girlfriend is a realtor!!
