Default Good body shop in Houston?

So it finally happened.. some a$$hole that can't pull out or park for sh!t did this to my car last night. Of course he/she left no info.. My deductible is $500 so its not worth it to claim. Other than paint the bumper itself is ok. Any shop recommendation guys? I was thinking about taking it to Paul at Baker.

Call Paul and get a quote and then use it to shop around.
Only issue is matching the pearl white color is very very hard for most body shops, even Nissan had issues.

Sucks to see the car get it, but if you had bought a better color you would have not had this problem.

Expro fixed my bumper when some a-hole hit it. PW too, matched perfectly and charged me around 300$. Great customer service
