The Trusted Professionals of Sarasota is a dynamic group of highly regarded, local professionals spanning a variety of industries ranging from:
  • Financial Services
  • Insurance
  • Legal Services
  • Home & Auto Services
  • Health & Wellness Services

The group was initially formed in 2009 for the purpose of providing its members with an in-depth network of professionals with whom they could trust to confidently refer their clients, friends, family and themselves.  

In order to maintain the highest level of integrity and trust, membership in the Trusted Professionals of Sarasota is by invitation only.  Prospective members must be introduced to the chapter by an existing member and must complete an in-depth application process.  Our membership committee conducts background checks and interviews business references to ensure that each prospective member is a business professional of the highest standards.

As only one member is accepted per profession, the foundation of our group is built around a strong code of ethics that each member must agree to and abide by before they are permitted to join.  Our code of ethics includes the following:
  • Provide the quality of services at the prices I have quoted.
  • Be truthful with the members and their referrals.
  • Build goodwill and trust among members and their referrals.
  • Take responsibility for promptly following up on the referrals I receive.
  • Display a positive, courteous, and supportive attitude with the members and their referrals.
  • Live up to the ethical standards of my profession.  
Take comfort in knowing that if you choose to work with any member of the Trusted Professionals of Sarasota, you will be treated with the utmost respect, courtesy, promptness and integrity.  The professionals within our group constantly strive to far exceed their client’s expectations.

01/04/2018 : Pete Franciosi, We’re one company with 3 divisions: Cool Today, Plumbing Today and Energy Today. We provide homes and businesses in Southwest Florida with air conditioning, heating, plumbing and electrical services.
