"You get what you pay for almost always come into play. If you want low cost, high quality work, it will be hard to find quality workers."

If you're interested in paying a bit more, top level providers in any category are scored to help you track them down. They have ratings for, total earnings (depending on privacy issues), repeat clients & an overall score showing how well regarded they are by other buyers.

Don't expect it to do all the heavy lifting for you, however, interview your prospects, edit their work, and liberally use the feedback tools to land solid contractors that you can count on for future projects.
