We are looking to update our website. What are some of the best ways to determine a firm that is best for you and, how important is it that they be Hubspot Certified? What sort of details do we need to know/ask for if they are not Hubspot Certified?

If you're thinking of having your website (re-)built on the HubSpot CMS you'll find tremendous value listening to about 30 mins from one of HubSpot's leading authorities on the subject, Luke Summerfield. Don't let the 'certification' course title or the course timer scare you away. Just listen to Luke's first 29 minutes on Growth Driven Design Fundamentals.
- see Growth-Driven Design
That introduction will help guide your thinking about the 'Why' around your web design project. (uber important)
Next on the list of 'homework' and before you dump a chunk of change on what Luke reports may be a potentially frustrating experience (according to marketer feedback), you'll want to start thinking about what returns you'd like to see from your new website.
Regarding ... "how important is it that they be Hubspot Certified?"
Let's just say that if you're not interested in your website generating any revenue for your business then HubSpot Growth Driven Design and HubSpot Design Certifications aren't that important.
However, if you expect any level of return on your investment for the business, you'll want to have only HubSpot certified personnel with YEARS of experience work on your HubSpot assets. That includes both your Website Design/Developement AND your HubSpot Marketing assets.
Think of it like the new HubSpot version of the old Michelin tire commercial, "Because so much is riding on your website design."
