Great experience! He responded to my request on Thumbtack right away, called before he came, which was the very next day, replaced two light fixtures & a few ceiling bulbs, and charged exactly what he said he would. We already have a plan for him to come back and handle several other basic household things; caulking, painting, etc. Honest, hard-working, smart and a pleasure - Have already recommended him to my elderly parents, the ultimate compliment!

Long story short, my new house got dirty fast having guests over. Candice got all of the marks off of the walls, baseboards, hard wood floors, and even was able to fully clean a couch chair someone had thrown up all over. All in a quick and timely manner. I will be using her for all future cleaning and recommending her to friends and family.

Candice did a great job. Our house needed deep cleaning in a number of areas. We were very pleased with the results. Candice was on time, worked hard and did all the work we requested. In addition to the quality of her work, Candice has an upbeat personality which is a joy to be around.

Mr. Solis came and saw what my problems were. He found openings on my house where the rodents were coming in. He promptly seal the openings. Now, it's a wait and see time. He is very knowledgeable, friendly, easy to talk with. He will discuss what is the best option for your problem. Also, since he will be coming back in a couple of weeks to check the traps, I will have a list of household repairs that need a cost estimate. One person to take care of rodent, electrical, and handyman repair problems, makes life easier for me.

I don't know what else you could expect from a contractor the Cruz doesn't gladly provide. He's professional, prompt, reasonable, and he's a man of his word in general. He continued to pleasantly surprise us. If you're looking for someone to trust with your home or your family's health and safety - I would speak with him first (no charge by the way).

This is the second time we hired Ed's services in the last 9 months. We have been very satisfied with his professionalism, work quality and creativity. We got a variety of things done in one session -- TV mounting, child-proofing a variety of heavy furniture, child-proofing the balcony and a few other misc things. All done efficiently and with great quality. Ed is now our go to person for any such household needs.

While searching the internet for someone to remove our 12-year-old carpet from our two-bedroom flat, I found many referrals for carpet installation and floor refinishing, but nothing for carpet removal only. I then ran across a listing from Thumbtack, and thought I’d give it a try. The site was very easy to use. It asked me specific questions regarding the job, and within minutes I received emails from three people in my area that included price quotes. I chose one (Brian’s Handyman Services) and communicated further with Brian to clarify details. He booked the job for the next day. Brian sent me a text stating that he was on his way, and he arrived on time. He brought Carlos with him and the two of them began working immediately. If you’ve ever removed carpet, you know it’s a tedious job: it includes pulling up the carpet and pad, cutting them into pieces, pulling out all of the staples from the floor, removing the tack strips, and disposing of the carpet and pad. Brian and Carlos not only did that, but they moved our large pieces of furniture around in order to accomplish it. When they left, there was NO mess for us to clean up. Furniture was back into place and floors were swept. Brian even bolted four large pieces of furniture back onto the wall that had to be unbolted and moved in order to remove the carpet under them. Brian stuck with his original quote, even though the job turned out to be larger than expected. I can’t say enough kind things about Brian and Carlos and the professional job they did. They were fantastic! If you want someone who is honest, fair, flexible, and easy to work with, I highly recommend Brian’s Handyman Services for anything you need done at your home—and it sounds like he can do everything. You can contact Brian through Thumbtack on the internet.

Ben is a very thoughtful professional person, I hired him for install washer and dryer machine in my new house, and he gave me a very good solution of how to put washer and dryer in our small laundry room, I am so pleased I don't need to place dryer out of the laundry room or cut wall. He is also responsible and patient to explain everything to me. He did excellent job and make everything perfectly working. He is also an electrical engineering and I am going to hire him in the future time if I need. Thank you Ben.

Couldn't be happier! Deana did not blanch at the huge job we handed her (one time cleaning). She was cheerful, positive, friendly, and accommodating throughout. She did a great job, very thorough. I am picky to say the least, so I wanted someone with whom it was easy to communicate. It was wonderful to be able to ask questions and discuss easily the details about special areas and items. As it turned out, Deana knew more about cleaning methods and products than me or anyone I've ever had clean. There was absolute respect and correct care for everything, from vases to appliances to furniture finishes. I would have her again and definitely recommend her to my friends.

I've been working with Deana almost 5 years now and I still relish the moment I walk in the door after she's been here. The house is beautifully put together, feels looked after and cared for. She's always communicative if anything changes in her schedule, is flexible when things change on our end. She lets me know when it's time for a deep clean, without pushing that too often. She's been a godsend for this very busy household.

Del did a great job installing a replacement sink for one which broke. He arrived on time, had proper tools, worked neatly and efficiently and when he was done checked out my poorly working lock. He fixed that too and it is working more consistently. Although we still don't trust it 100%, our hopes are highland if it stops working again it would be the fault of the design and not his workmanship. He assured us he'd return at no charge if we have issues with either sink or lock. I highly recommend Del for any household challenges of a diy nature which you may face.

In San Ramon, Tom installed 3 new light fixtures outside my house, replacing old ones. He tested each one before installing...a great idea! He also replaced a timer switch inside the house with a regular on/off switch, as required by the new fixtures. It was very hot that day, but he handled it well and my husband was thrilled not to have to do it himself! We will definitely call Tom again in the future!

I was very glad that I found Milko Young. I am a landlord from Texas and I came to Berkeley to help with my daughter's move-in to a small house. I appreciated someone like Milko who is professional, honest, and easy to work with. He was great and is a true painter and handyman. His work included painting, fixing cracks in the ceiling/walls, installing various household items (ceiling fans, light fixtures), and staining the patio deck. He is also very thorough, he made sure fixtures like the smoke alarms were in working condition. I'm very picky about people who work for me and Milko went beyond my expectations. We are definitely planning to continue to have Milko do more work for us (landscaping & general handyman) in the weeks to follow. Thanks Milko!

Milko was wonderful, professional and detail oriented. In fact, he was the very first person to respond to my post and within a couple of hours, at my door to give an estimate. And even though the job ended up taking an extra three hours of his time, he stuck to the original estimate which is a sign of professionalism and someone I’d hire again and again. Highly recommend Milko Yong!

Rudy was patient and professional in working on my electrical issues. He offered a menu of options instead of the usual contractor spiel where it's one high priced project or the highway. He not only assisted me in the electrical complications but also provided much needed insight on other household issues like a leaking door seal. Thank you, Rudy!

I used J.A. Services in two occasions. On the first, they furnished my SOMA tri-level loft as a furnished rental unit, and on the other occasion, they staged my loft for a sale. J.A. Services not only met my key requirements but also exceeded my expectations on both occasions. My key requirements were as follows. For the rental, I wanted a modern and comfortable living environment with inexpensive furniture that did not look cheap. For the staging, I sought to maximize the value received in the sale. For both, J.A. Services exceeded my requirements. J.A. Services also completed their work on a very tight schedule, allowing me to market my unit quickly. I very much appreciated J.A. Services and their excellent eye for designing contemporary, urban, and comfortable living environments.

I struggled keeping up with the massive amounts of paper coming through my home and office. It was to the point where my mail was creating unnecessary clutter robbing me of my much needed space. The best decision I could have made was to hire Theres no space like home to assist in this paper management problem that was bringing me down. Theres no SPACE like HOME not only organized my space, they created an efficient, functional system tailored specifically to my needs and habits for managing my household and handling all the paperwork. I learned that regular maintenance requires simple, efficient and quick routines to keep it in good condition. I strongly recommend There's No SPACE Like HOME for all your home and office organizational needs. They have truly made a profound difference in my life.

Jennifer cleaned my house within an inch of its life. She cleaned it more thoroughly than it has ever been cleaned in the 13 years I’ve lived here. I told her that I was having a party for my daughter’s 16th birthday and she made this place shine. She rearranged furniture, she decorated, she put up lights outside, and she made the most amazingly beautiful cake. I can’t wait to work with her again.

I had a great experience with my housecleaning from Lisa. I needed a deep-clean on my kitchen and bathroom while I took care of the bedroom and errands. We chatted a lot and she has a fun attitude, offered to help me assemble my IKEA project even. She suggested areas to clean that I hadn't thought of, and was busy the whole time. She is thorough, really got through the grime, cleaned baseboards and floors, even wiped down my spice jars. I recommend Lisa for your next job!

I am an advocate and Pro for Thumbtack and hired Kayla for my boyfriend to prepare his apartment before his family came to town. The tasks were vague to start, but she acted as our personal assistant for 3 days since we have extremely busy schedules. She organized his place, put items in storage, set up the guest bedroom, grocery shopped, and minitored the cleaner. She was able to check in 2 different flights for our visitors and manage their airport Uber pick ups remotely, as well as managing some personal emails. She was able to provide an array of dinner reservation options and book them. The special touches were noticed, such as; putting stemmed glasses for the white wine in the freezer, checking in on our hired cleaner, organizing closet space in the guest bedroom and setting up their Netflix. Kayla was trustworthy, asked the right questions, and was very efficient! It is definitely worth hiring a pro to take the stress off your plate when having visitors, will hire her again in a month before more company.

My home office needed organizing, and badly. Kayla came in, looked around, and got things going right away. She is efficient and works quickly. It also helped that she is very personable and easy to work with. She's coming back next week and I trust we'll get a great deal done. I am very appreciative of her skills and willingness to help sort out a bit of chaos.

Annette has been the main caregiver for our 3 year old twins since they were 4 months old. They adore her and I trust her completely with them. She is caring, conscientious and very loving with them. She is always doing fun activities with them…taking them to the zoo, the park, playdates, crafts, etc. She has also helped the kids to make good friends that they are very close with. We also have a 7 ½ year old that Annette occasionally cares for. She is also wonderful with her, helping her with her reading and homework, giving her individual attention, and making her feel equally important. She also occasionally makes dinner and helps with errands. We have another nanny that would work on Annette’s off days, and they would work together in order to arrange their schedules, switch days, etc. so that I never needed to be concerned about our coverage. We found Annette on care.com and she has been invaluable to our family. It is difficult raising 2.5 children in a household where both parents work full time. We feel very fortunate to have found such a wonderful addition to our family. She is very attached to the kids and has notified us that we are stuck with her until they go to college. :)
