About The Best Of Connecticut Team


It’s hard to figure out which local services are the best fit for our needs – Which schools? Which doctors? Which remodeling companies? And many more. It’s a long list of decisions, each one with a lot of potential homework.

That’s where we come in. Our professional curators research and write two types of content:

Buying Guides. These address the key questions: How should I figure out what’s best for me? What questions should I be asking? How much do things typically cost? What are credible sources of information I can use for deeper research? Our team does the homework you’d possibly do if you had the time.

“Best of” listings of nearby businesses, with integrated maps. Instead of listing all the nearby businesses, or just the ones that pay to be listed, we focus on the “best” ones. We determine “best” in three ways, depending on the category:

  • By our professional curators, using clearly disclosed standards that rely on multiple, credible, third-party sources. We call these businesses “Curator’s Picks”.
  • By consumers in large-scale contests that we run annually, such as “Best of Connecticut” and “Best of New Haven”. We call these businesses “Winners” and “Runners-Up”.
  • By trusted partners, known for their high-quality and independent research. We call these people and businesses “Top Doctors” and “Best Workplaces”.

When we publish our work, we take care to clearly disclose how we do it, so you can decide how much to trust it. We use the following overall guidelines:

  • transparency. It’s tricky to determine what’s “best” since everyone’s needs are different. There is also a lot of information online that may not be what it seems. Our response is to clearly disclose what we are doing, and how we are doing it.
  • Multiple sources. When we research, we connect with multiple local businesses and national experts. When we use online resources for things like consumer reviews, we consult multiple sites.
  • Not pay-to-play. When a business is listed as “best,” or quoted as a source in a buying guide, they are not paying us. They can buy ads (see more about that below), but if they don’t choose to do that, we don’t take them off the “best” list, and we don’t take them out of a Buying Guide.
  • Professional process. All our content goes through a controlled internal process of editing to ensure that it meets our quality standards.

All that said, we don’t independently verify things like business licenses, we don’t visit businesses in person, and we can’t guarantee the quality of products or services you may buy from a business. We are simply helping you with the homework, and encouraging you to always ask further business questions before buying anything.
