Berkeley locksmith Rex Key & Security, has received an Angie’s List Super Service Award® for 2009.

San Francisco, CA, March 26, 2010 --( Rex Key & Security, located at 1908 University Avenue in Berkeley, has been honored as the recipient of an Angie’s List Super Service Award for 2009. For a hundred years, Rex Key & Security has been serving the locksmith and security needs of businesses and residents in the East Bay Area including Berkeley, Oakland and surrounding locations.

According to Wikipedia, “Angie’s List is one of many companies which aggregate consumer reviews of local service companies and which have been described by the New York Times as a way to "capture word-of-mouth wisdom." Angie's List is unique, however, in that it charges consumers to see reviews, reflecting their belief that charging consumers "adds credibility to the information."”

Every year, Angie’s List recognizes companies who have received positive reviews from members for providing outstanding service during the year prior.

In 2009, criteria for a business to receive an Angie’s List Super Service Award included having a minimum number of reports from members, an A average and good standing with the Better Business Bureau. According to Angie’s List, less than 5% of participating companies were given the award in 2009.

Rex Key & Security’s owner, Joe Towbis, says, “It feels great to put the Angie’s List Super Service Award® badge on because it means our customers have taken the time out to give us positive reviews on there. That means a lot to us because we’re a service-driven company.”

Rex Key & Security has licensed and insured locksmiths in eight mobile units serving the East Bay Area and the company offers 24/7 emergency service in addition to their fully stocked shop on University Avenue. Whether you’re locked out of your car or your home or you need a specialty key cut, Rex Key can help.

“I always suggest that people program our phone number into their telephone because often when you have an emergency lockout, you’re not near a phone book,” states Towbis.
