Default Shower tap advise please

This past spring we purchased a condo in Naples Florida for seasonal use.

I noticed one day the shower was dripping from the faucet. It hadn't even been used. I tried turning it tighter but it just leaked more. Finally found by trial and error a spot on the dial which stopped the leaking.

Normally I would get into something like this and try to fix it myself but my concern is without shut offs for the tap if I run into a problem I may not be able to turn the condos water back on.

It would seem prudent to me to hire a plumber to come and replace whatever is not working properly (I am assuming the cartridge but maybe it is something else)

Some questions:

- Can anyone from the North Naples area recommend a good plumber?

- What do I need to tell the plumber so he hopefully can have the correct parts?

- Anyone have any thoughts on what is causing this problem?

- Does anyone know what make and model this would be, image below?

For some reason my image doesn't load but this is a link to it

I THINK that is an older Delta, but I am not sure.
