The winner of our Most Trusted Plumber in H-F award, by a landslide, is longtime local Randy Van Neil.
“I was surprised,” VanNeil said. “It’s nice. It feels good that people trust you.”
Van Neil began working as a plumber in town after moving to Homewood from Michigan over two decades ago. For the past 14 years, he’s been running Van Neil Plumbing out of Homewood and creating a lot of satisfied customers along the way.
Lately, the harsh winter conditions have had him working 14 to 15 hour days, but he’s still going strong.
“I work for myself, by myself,” he said.
Van Neil’s connection with Homewood goes way beyond the pipes. He’s also spent years coaching his three kids' baseball teams at Izaak Walton Preserve.
Van Neil plumbing is located at 18420 Klimm Ave. in Homewood. This business can be reached at 708-206-0212.
