We had a very positive experience with Mr. Zarif when he did some work in our house. He was very honest and explained in details what and how the repair needed to be done and the charges. We will definitely use his services again in future. Thank you Mr. zarif

Excellent experience with Juan. He was very responsive, punctual, quickly diagnosed the issue (I had a leak in my sprinkler system), and provided me a fair quote for the work to repair. He repaired the same day. I'll be using him on all future plumbing jobs I have. I strongly recommend.

I have to say this is the first time I took a risk on hiring someone who was not referred to me by someone I knew. HOUSE TO HOME is actually a perfect name for I have never been so empowered about my home with knowledge and expertise as I was during and after the repair work that TJ did for my mother's multiple properties (complex electrical work and door adjustments). I honestly have to say that I know more about all the areas he addressed and he is a neat worker and educates the client and tenant. HOUSE TO HOME resolved a long standing issue with my tenant's front and back doors - an issue I have had 3 different handymen look at and none were able to complete to my tenant's satisfaction - TJ DID!! He was also very good communicator during the entire process and gave me options and pros and cons and managed the work proactively and resourcefully. I HIGHLY recommend, and believe me with having to manage 6 properties I have worked with many people and HOUSE TO HOME tops the list.

Electrical work in my kitchen. Houman arrived on time and is very pleasant. It took awhile to find the problem & he was able to explain the problem to me. The cost of the repair was reasonable. If I need this type of work again I will call him back.

I cannot say enough about how pleasant of an experience this was. Initially, we booked another handyman to repair our master bath shower. He turned out to be a jerk so at the last minute, with literally only a few days until family arrived out of town, I found Rodriguez Construction on Thumbtack. Jesus replied right away, he was easy to coordinate with, he was willing to accommodate our work schedules, and he showed up ready and able to complete our repairs. We even had some unexpected repairs that needed to be made that he was willing to help us with. Bottom line, the repairs were done and with great quality and all before our family arrived from Hawaii (Thank God!). Jesus will be our go-to guy for any and all handyman work. He is an honest guy who really just wants to help people out when they need help. Thank you Jesus!

Who would have thought an electrical repair could be a pleasant experience. I needed a ceiling fan replacement, and Eugene accompanied me to select the appropriate fan. He exhibited a professional demeanor and his charges were very reasonable. I will certainly use him in the future and happily refer him to family and friends.

Due to extremely high wind over the weekend, our wooden fence became wobbly and highly unstable. After minutes of placing a repair request, Jamie responded promptly and was able to come over and assess the damage within a short time later. In person, he's highly professional and courteous with a big genuine smile. The quote was affordable, reasonable and highly competitive. The work was successfully and professionally completed in just a few hours the following day. He also nicely cleaned up the work space and its close vicinity. Overall, we are greatly impressed with his high quality of work, his punctuality and dependability, his affordable pricing and his professionalism. We'll definitely keep Jamie as our go-to handyman for future repair and maintenance works.

This was my first experience with Thumbtack and Mark from Handy Panda Home Services made certain that it was a great one. I needed help with a kitchen drawer that remained broken at my house for about three months. Finding a good and responsive handyman who knew how to fix it was especially difficult and nagging my husband to fix it was even more so. Mark, however, was able to repair it in less than an hour. He contacted me promptly after I posted on Thumbtack, told me he knew exactly what the problem was, gave me an estimate that was honest and more than reasonable and immediately scheduled a day and time with me. Within hours of confirming when he would come and repair the drawer, he purchased the part that was needed and texted me the estimate invoice of the agreed upon price for his services. So when he arrived, I knew exactly what to expect and how much I would have to pay. I am currently working on a list of additional repairs around my house that I need help with as he is very knowledgeable and seems to really enjoy working on these projects and helping people.

Wow George gave me a great quote for shaving 7 closet doors and putting them on track and to replace a toilet. The day scheduled to do the work, he managed to fix my refrigerator lines and repair a drawer as well as the closet doors and replacinh the toilet. He had to go look for some parts at a couple of stores and got the job done. We're very happy with his service. We will definitely call him again.

Zuriel, is the best person I’ve ever had come and work on my projects. Very professional from the initial phone call, showing up on time, assessment of the project and providing constant updates to me and my sister. He had a person repair my broken water pipe, and then he drywalled the area after a few days to determine if the pipes were not leaking. Then another few days of painting and texture on the ceiling, drying and repeat. He matched the paints perfectly. Great value for the price and expertise. My schedule was chaotic and he worked around it and also with my sis to get the job completed on time. If he was running late, he sent me a text or called. I’m so pleased that I’ve walked him thru my house showing other projects. I know he is advertised as a painter but he is knowledgeable about other house maintenance projects.

Kyle currently manages a property that I own out in Camarillo, and he has for a year now. He's been absolutely fantastic. Professional, friendly, and helpful, and I've recommended him to several friends in LA and in Ventura County and they have had similarly positive experiences. He quickly found me great tenants, and even helped take care of some repairs himself, saving me money and hassle. He even helped take some things down to Goodwill when I was moving - above and beyond! I do, and will continue to, recommend Kyle to others.

I have worked with Nick for over a two decades now. He has done numerous repair jobs and/or remodels for me on my homes as well as worked on a few rental properties I own. Everything from a roof repair, plumbing leaks/new plumbing, tile work, a new fence, Jacuzzi installations to full bathroom & kitchen remodels. He's always shown up on time when he said he'd be here and has completed the projects in the amount of time he estimated. His pricing has always been fair and the quality of work has always been exceptional. He cleans up after himself when he's done and makes sure that you're happy with everything before signing off on the work. He's a great guy to work with and has great sens of humor. With all the bad stuff you hear about construction people and contractors out there, he's a breath of fresh air. I've done everything from full new construction work to minor repairs and he's always the guy I call first. I'd recommend him to anyone looking for someone that they can count on the give you a good deal and get the job done without any headaches. Ken aka Monty

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is a general contractor?

When starting a home remodel or new construction project, you will probably hire a general contractor. A general contractor is a professional who is qualified to take a set of building plans and construct them as outlined. The general contractor may help perform the day-to-day building, or they may just hire workers and oversee all the work activities. In either case, the job of the general contractor is to see that your project gets built.

When you have a building project, ask for bids from various contractors. The bids tell you how much each will charge and what their scope of work will be. Once you have selected a bid, you sign a contract with that general contractor outlining the specifics of the project and the milestones during the project when they will receive payment installments. Once the contract is official, the general contractor will bring in their crew to begin construction. The contractor will manage the workers and subcontractors (anyone who doesn’t work directly for their company but that they need to outsource, like a marble installation pro), order all the materials, obtain work permits, and confirm that all the workers and subcontractors are completing their projects as planned. They typically handle all the payments to the workers and subcontractors, and send you invoice. For all these reasons, it’s also especially important to follow a few smart hiring practices when it comes to finding a general contractor.  If you are organized and competent to oversee construction projects, and are able to make sure everything is being built properly and meeting code, it’s possible you can be your own general contractor.  

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.

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.

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.

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.
