They can be friends, a landlord, clients or anyone who can speak to your good personal qualities such as your honesty, dependability, good nature, etc.

What is an example of a good reference?
(Person name) always goes above and beyond in everything they do, and this was no different with the recent assignment. They were always willing to offer their assistance and had an excellent rapport with the many constituents served by our office including clients, employers, and other professional organizations.
