I'm from out-of-state and knew of no painters. Thumbtack recommended several and from the beginning of the communication I was feeling drawn to Jose. He was able to make a personal visit to meet me, see my space, and give helpful suggestions toward color. Every interaction with him was timely, professional, and instilled confidence in hiring him. Today, he and his two crew members arrived on time and quickly set about prepping. Not only did they protect my furniture and floors from accidental splatters, but they cheerfully removed all window blinds, drapes and mounted flat screen tv. Jose is kind, personable, and hard-working. I'm very satisfied with the work and would not hesitate to recommend him. I would definitely call upon him for any future painting needs. Jose understands customer service and does everything in his power to complete the job to your satisfaction.
