GET Debra's Little Black Book

I’m often asked, “Who’s the best handyman in the area? Where can I find a great home cook for my party?” After 30 years in the business, I’ve gathered quite a list! That’s why I created my Little Black Book–a comprehensive, 80 page guide of my most trusted vendors, service providers, and partners in Chicago.

You can get your very own electronic copy, or a beautifully bound and printed version as a gift from me to you. Just pop in your information below, and we’ll send one your way.

Debra Dobbs

DEBRA is the General and a committed work-a-holic, with a quirky playful side, though when it comes to her clients she is a fierce warrior. Debra enjoys working. When she can’t work she enjoys growing fig trees and movie marathons snuggled up with her daughter Kat and their 3 doogies.
Ben

Ben loves running, watching movies, exploring, and trying new restaurants. He loves watching basketball and is happy it gives him plenty of reason to stay indoors in the winters. Love of pizza and limoncello makes him an honorary Italian.
