Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: I specialize in electrical, LED recessed light conversions, tv mounting, furniture assembly, curtain rods, hanging artwork, household “honey-do list” items, general repairs, design ideas, painting, etc. I simply charge $75 per hour for my time (with a $100 minimum. Sorry, I DON’T do estimates but don’t worry... I’ve been providing a handyman/honey-do service since 2001 so I’m very proficient and have all the tools needed to complete a job efficiently and at a fair price. My reviews will tell you that. Nicknamed the “rent-a-husband” by the Burlingame Mothers Club. I’m a Bay Area native with a Bachelor of Science degree from San Diego State University. I enjoy helping people with their to-do lists and solving those home improvement projects that never seem to get done. Life can be stressful and I understand the importance of finding someone trustworthy and knowledgeable. It’s my mission to keep my clients happy and feeling accomplished. I service Burlingame, Hillsborough, San Mateo, Foster City, San Carlos, Belmont, Redwood City, Palo Alto, Menlo Park, Atherton, Los Altos and the coast. Many referrals on Nextdoor, Hillsborough Together and various Mothers Clubs. I’d love to help you with your projects!

Greg did a great job installing a new LED fluorescent fixture in our garage. When I initially asked him to repair my old fixture he suggested rightly that it’s better for me to upgrade the fixture. He also fixed a small problem that we noticed with my garage opener socket at no extra cost. I really appreciate that he did that even though he had not budgeted the time and had another place to get to. Throughout he was very friendly. Great work done and great value. Will definitely contact him for future needs.

Greg did a fantastic job mounting our TV and several floating cabinets. He was very well prepared and professional, very personable, and I would strongly recommend his services to anyone searching for an excellent handyman with great rates. If we ever have a major project in the future, I'm keeping Greg in mind!

I have hired Greg for 3 separate not so easy jobs. He is enthusiastic and very professional. I have recommended him to my son for his projects! If you need something done Greg is the guy to do it! I have 2 to 3 additional projects that I will definitely hire Greg to do.
