Being a new to Thumbtack and unfamiliar with its processes, I was a little wary about hiring a magician from the site for my son's magic themed 1st birthday party. Despite my initial reservations, I went ahead and booked Todd Reis for the event.
From the initial filling out of my information on the Thumbtack website, all the way through to the end of his performance, the experience with Todd Reis and Thumbtack was seamless. Prior to the actual date of the party, Todd was readily available to answer questions via email. He showed up on time to the event, was highly professional, and truly entertaining.
Since I wasn't sure about how this service worked, for those who are also in the dark, the series of events went as follows:
*First I chose what kind of performance I was looking for, & filled out information which included the price I was willing to pay for a performance/service.
*Next, I received offers from various performers/magicians to complete the service at/around the price I quoted.
*After reading reviews and weighing the pros and cons of each profile, I clicked a link on Todd's profile to hire him for the event.
*After a few more questions about the details of the event, he was booked. I was not required to pay a deposit, but I paid in full by cash at the event.
*Todd showed up on time and ready to go! He walked around and mingled with the guests as he wowed them with various magic tricks. I would hire him again through Thumbtack in a heartbeat!
