They were excellent! The team was professional & showed up ready to work! Unfortunately, I was not clear regarding everything I wanted done, but they completed the extra tasks (installed a glass shower door & new 60" TV) and ended up charging less than the original quote! I am very pleased with everything and will use them again. We discussed a gutter maintenance service & I am requesting a date (anticipating El Niño)! Thank you so much for all the help!😊

We've had a leak in our pipes under the kitchen sink for awhile now. For some time, it was only under our left side but just the other day, the right side finally gave out. Abraham was responsive when I called him to ask for an estimate and it was smooth sailing from there on. He came the very next morning and did the job effortlessly. I'm not savvy when it comes to maintenance stuff around the house, but I learned a lot from him. He didn't just come in, do the work and leave. He did the work, explained to me what he was doing, and the problems that I should look out for in the future. Not only that, he was down to earth and it was easy to have small talk with him. I would highly recommend Abraham to anyone needing any maintenance around their home. I'm so amazed at how easy and quick the job took! Now, I can fully use the kitchen sink without worrying about it leaking. Again, I want to reiterate that I highly recommend him. Thank you Abraham!!

Needed to replace my water supply line and install a PRV while demoing my front yard. Edgar worked with my constantly changing schedule and came 4 days before we originally scheduled (per my request) to complete the work. Edgar showed up on time, did the exact job I requested for the price he quoted. He didn't take any shortcuts and plumbed it so future work or maintenance will be easy to perform. Won't ever call a different plumber, Edgar is my guy!

I recently purchased a home and needed several jobs done, ranging from simple to complex. I needed shelves put up in the laundry room, a new mailbox, rafters in the garage, bathroom shower installed, doorbells on both front and back doors, screen door for the patio, hanging (and leveling!) wall decorations, outside wooden fence general maintenance, and more! Once the weather breaks they are to come back and assemble a gas grill, fix a downspout, fix an outside light, and other jobs I have for them. They are professional, neat, very affordable. I have and will recommend them very highly! In the meantime, I will be adding to my list of things I need done!

I own several properties in North America and I wish I could have Sunny Coast Manage all of them. Sunny Coast has been managing my SanDiego properties for over 5 years and have been doing a fantastic job. They take care of everything including managing repairs and services, tenant placememts, and paying property expencies. Their management fees are very reasonable. They are responsive and provide a high level of service. They also have a good eye for the right tenant. All my tenants were evaluated and qualified by Sunny Coast and each tenant has been great and headache free. Best of all they don't bother me....they take care of the issues quickly and efficiently on their own. Their accounting is extremely transparent and all property expencies and revenues can be found very easily online where it's updates regularly. You can filter different categories such as taxes, rent income, repairs, etc....they also upload scans/copies of services invoices and bills to your account. Very user friendly.

Dennis has managed two properties for me for several years. I love that I trust him to take care of everything related to the properties so that I can spend time with my family. Dennis is professional, easy to communicate with, and always lets me know what is going on. My rentals are never vacant for long, and his maintenance crew can fix any problems quickly!

Enrique and his team did an amazing job on our front yard. We ripped out the old grass and a few large trees. We had a combination of flat land and slopes which can be challenge. We went with a drought tolerant low maintenance landscape and couldn't be happier.

Travis did a good job. Showed up on time - early and knocked the job out. Originally the qoute was 125 somehow the day of the price kept going up. Ended up paying 165. I would use Travis again but i will make sure to specific about the full cost before any work is done. Thanks for the help Travis.

After years of being out of town landlords we decided it was time to seek a property management company. Home Team Property Management was highly recommended. Once the house was vacated they assisted, long distance, with a total renovation and repairs. The contractor they chose and their maintenance team did an outstanding job while keeping within our budget. The house is rented and Home Team handles everything for us at a very reasonable fee. It is no longer a burden to have a rental. We would highly recommend their services.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What does a property management company do?

Property management companies manage the rental of residential homes, apartments, condos, commercial spaces and retail spaces. Property managers can oversee just a single unit or many properties, whether those sites are inhabited full-time or are vacation rentals. A property management company helps a property owner or landlord find tenants; collects rent; takes care of accounting, property maintenance and repairs; handles on-site management; and manages vacation rental check-in and checkout tasks. Although many property owners or landlords successfully manage their own rental real estate, a property management company can help you handle tenant issues and maintenance problems, especially if you are not located in the same city or state. Most property management companies deal with tenants directly, and their tasks include:

  • Marketing the rental property
  • Collecting rent
  • Handling repair problems
  • Responding to tenant complaints
  • Evicting tenants  

A property management company may be a good choice for property owners who have several investment properties, live far away from the rental property, or don’t have time for hands-on management.

How do you find a good handyman?

Finding a good handyman can change your life. Within days, the endless list of insurmountable tasks that were either out of your skill range or impossible to fit into your busy schedule can be completed. If you know you want help but aren’t sure how to hire the right pro, ask these questions to find the right fit:

  • What is your work experience? If you are putting in a tile backsplash, you want someone experienced with the task, not someone who generally does painting and junk removal.
  • How much do you charge? Handymen often charge hourly rates that vary based on the complexity of the task they’re hired to do, as well as flat rates for standard jobs. Be clear about what they’ll charge before you hire them.
    • On that note, discuss payment details. It’s wise not to pay all the money up front, especially for larger projects. You may be able to pay a deposit for materials and pay the remainder upon project completion.
  • How long will the job take you to complete? If the handyman is as busy as you are and a fence repair is going to take months, you should probably find another qualified handyman for the job.

Read client reviews and follow up with references to make sure you’re choosing the right handyman for your projects. For more, check out our tips for smart hiring on Thumbtack.

What does a handyman do?

A handyman is a skilled laborer who provides basic home repairs. Anyone can call themselves a handyman, although most who do so are skilled with repairs and home projects. Reading reviews is a good way to determine their fitness for your job. The tasks a handyman can perform include assembling furniture, painting interiors and exteriors, repairing fences, repairing broken doors or replacing trim, hanging lights, hooking up appliances, and much more. Handymen may have flat fees for certain services, or charge an hourly rate. Handyman rates are often lower than those of a contractor, as they don’t have the same specialization. Some states have no limit on the work a handyman can perform, while others do. For example, California’s Building and Professions Code section 7048 (small operations) permits handymen to provide work similar to that of a contractor (floor installation, painting, etc.) provided the total cost of labor and materials does not exceed $500. A handyman is a great resource for minor home repairs at a lower cost than a licensed contractor, but for more complex projects, it pays to hire a specialized contractor.

Why is property management important?

A property management company can be a landlord’s greatest asset. As a neutral third party, the property manager handles the day-to-day operations of a real estate investment, from a single vacation home to a large apartment building or several rental properties. A property management company can be especially helpful to landlords who own several units and can’t manage each of them individually, or those who live too far from their investment properties to meet with renters and oversee maintenance. Property management is particularly important if your rentals are part of an affordable housing program. To receive financial assistance from the government, the landlord must comply with a complicated set of rules; property management companies should have both experience and expertise in complying with the rules specific to each housing program.

How much does a handyman charge?

The national average rate for handyman jobs is $90-$160. A handyman performs general maintenance and repairs for residential and commercial properties. A handyman may charge a flat fee for standard services that take a predictable amount of time, such as installing a new appliance, as well as an hourly rate for larger projects such as digging out and replacing a rotted fence post. A cost-saving strategy when hiring a handyman is to bundle all the tasks you want them to do into one visit to make the most of any minimum service fee. Hourly rates for a handyman can average $50-$100 per hour. Pricing will depend on skill and experience required for the job, as well as regional labor rates. Here are a few examples of average handyman flat rates.

  • Attic ladder replacement: $150.
  • Toilet replacement: $75.
  • Ceiling fan and light fixtures: $75.
  • Faucet replacement: $125.
  • Garbage disposal: $75.
