We love the ability to lower our monthly expenses by using barter! We appreciate all of the contacts we have made through barter!

What have you purchased for your family over the last couple of years?
Landscaping, irrigation, catering, flowers, preschool, summer camp, patio furniture, timeshares, hair care, electrician, you name it!

How has barter benefitted your business?
It gives us more visibility in the business community, and it has given us more opportunities to establish relationships based on Barter that we might not have had.

Word-of-mouth through our barter clients with their clients has not only given us more barter opportunities, but more cash opportunities.

Have the gals in the office been of benefit/assistance to your business/home life?
[Husband Phil Stilton responds:] Yes, Faye and Lisa always steer us in the right direction. Just last weekend on advice from Lisa, I bought my wife a beautiful bouquet of flowers for Mother’s Day which would have cost me over $100 in cash!

What´s the best story you can share with us about your participation in our Network?
