Can someone explain references to me?

diddlydooJune 14, 2006

If I call and ask for references at a nursery for a particular designer that is scheduled to come to my home this Friday, will they be giving me addresses of places he has worked on or telephone numbers of people I call to see how they liked him? Sorry, but this is my first time hiring this type service and I'm looking for some guidance. Again, sorry if wrong forum! Please don't beat me up too bad if it is though. :-)

I want to get this done before he comes over. Thanks!!
