Stop your search for a Handyman here. You’ve found him.
I hired Aaron to assist in mounting a bathroom cabinet to my wall. Why might seems like a simple task is deceiving. My walls are a mix of cement, cinderblock and brick. Two previous handymen were not able to get the job done (one even breaking MY drill bits trying to get into brick. All they succeeded in doing was staining my Ethan Allen damask tufted chair with PERMANENT red dust).
Of course I made Aaron aware of the wall composition in advance of the job. He assured me immediately not to worry. His drill goes through concrete “like butter”.
I was impressed with Aaron before he even stepped foot in my home. Scheduling the job was easy. Aaron was flexible and quick to respond to my inquiries. He also answered questions I may have posed into the evening. Once at 10pm. I did not know until he was working in my home he had a baby at home. Impressive on TWO counts if you ask me.
When Aaron arrived there was a notable difference from previous handymen I had hired. I’m new to town had had needed some assistance in multiple areas. Too bad I found Aaron so late. He arrived with what I can only describe as a traveling workbench. This wasn’t just a toolbox and a drill. It was multiple boxes with every kind of tool, anchor, screw, nail, rope, etc., you name it, that he could possibly need. When I commented on how prepared he was his response was simply; “well it’s my job.”
As soon as he began working it was clear that I scored a HIGHLY SKILLED professional with EXTENSIVE knowledge in his field. He sought nothing less than perfection when it came to mounting, not just the medicine cabinet, but all of my mirrors and heavy frames. The precision he used when measuring. Double and triple-checking his work so that it was certain to be aesthetically pleasing. And his suggestions and trouble-shooting on other items that were not on the docket for that day were right on point.
Aaron worked quickly and efficiently without compromising excellence. And his rates are extremely fair for the quality of craftsmanship received. I even commented that he was worth more. To which he said, “if I could do it for free, I would. You’ve had a lot of false starts. But I have a baby.”
I appreciated that comment because I approach my work the same way. I love it and would also do it for free if I didn’t have the bills to pay.
At the end of the day, when someone loves their job, and they have the skill, they will excel. They will be the best option over all other options. I tried to pay him more than he requested, he refused the money.
Finally, as a single woman I was extremely comfortable having Aaron in my home. He had a great, calming energy. I’m certain I will have him back and I can tell you if I needed to leave I would never be concerned about leaving him in my home alone, even leaving him alone in my home with my precious pup.
There are a lot of apps out there. A lot of service providers. A lot of people who now make side gigs their main gigs and they’re simply unqualified.
Not Aaron. He is absolutely A+ talent and a true, true professional. I am very fortunate to have chosen Aaron to assist me with my mounting projects, as I now have a go-to professional in my new city who can take care of my household needs. And not just take care of those needs, but deliver superior results.
Thank you Aaron, people have been unable to stop complimenting the mounted artwork, mirrors and cabinet. And my mind is truly at ease knowing that in a new city where I know few people, if I need help I can count on you. I truly appreciate your hard work!
