Hello there. PM me and I can send you one I'm using. I interviewed several and their customers and decided to go with these guys.

I would suggest going on NARPM.ORG they are a great organization and the PM companies on there are very good and professional. 

Below are a good set of questions to ask to see how professional the company is, If they cannot answer these questions then you may want to keep looking
