I hired Excel Construction LA to a full interior remodel of a 1928 home that I purchased as a rental property, but quickly determined I had underestimated the amount of work and investment required to get it rental ready. As a casual landlord, I did not have much experience with remodeling, managing contractors, estimating costs, etc. But I loved the house and had a vision for what I wanted to create. I chose Excel Construction LA because I felt they understood my vision and would be flexible along the way. I was right and they proved to be a fantastic partner. Excel was always able to provide quality materials at a reasonable price, they were extremely flexible and accommodating working with my schedule and they produced quality work. The managed the entire permit process and went above and beyond to ensure all inspections were passed - not just the city's inspections, but also the buyer's inspectors. In the end, we turned a very run down home in South LA into a beautiful new home that sold for the top price point in the zip code - something local realtors said could not be done. Excel deserves a ton of credit for this. Nofar, Evan and the entire Excel team were super helpful and fun to work with, as was the sub, Jorge. Thanks Excel!

American Castles Mike To the RESCUE!!! The water heater at my rental property burst on a Friday afternoon causing some major damage to the house. The renters were furious because their items got damaged and the house wasn't inhabitable after that. On the inside, the bathroom wall and under stairway closet were all soaking wet and drywall/carpet/padding had to be removed immediately to prevent mole build up. On the garage side where the water heater located, the entire wall was destroyed. so I called my home insurance who provided me with their preferred plumber who quoted an additional $540 out of pocket on top of what the insurance was going to cover just so he can bring up the water heater installation to code! He told me that it will take him 1+ week to order the water heater (duh...get one from Home Depot take only 1hr...which is what Mike did) and that he can install a temporary water heater and will charge $137/wk! He also referred me to a water damage restoration company which I was not too happy with either. Since it was an emergency and I went with that company. They came in and ripped out all the wet drywall without caring for any molding; especially for garage doors and closet doors! It seemed like what ever the water heater didn't damage, they did. They also broke my water heater intake shut off valve. damage the water heater over flow copper pipe. All I can say is I will not use them again! Back to the plumber, something was smelling fishy about his quote and so I called and questioned this plumber. His response was "Well, I will need to flush out the gas line and calibrate your water pressure...upgrade to the new California safety quote...put in earthquake straps...install new vent line since the new water heater nowaday don't use the old vent line!". I was not convinces so I started to Google for good local contractor and AMERICAN CASTLES (Mike Tay is the owner) came up from Thumtack along with few others from other websites. I contacted them and they came in and provided me quotes. Mike was the last one I contacted. He arrived within 30min. He checked out the damages and explained to me what needs to get done sequentially to get everything back in proper operation for my tenants. Mike is very knowledgeable and very patient in explaining things. I told him what the plumber had said, he laughed and told me the whole thing was a rip off and a scam! Another crock of bull**** and advised me against it. He told me to call my insurance company to inquire about using other plumber. Sure enough I was offered the "cash out" option which I didn't even know was available. I took that option and went with Mike for the repair. Mike knows how important it is for my tenants to get the hot water running again once the water damage restoration company completed the clean up/dry out the area (took 1 week). As soon as that company removed their equipment, Mike had his crew come in the next day (Saturday) to repair the garage dry wall and finished the installation of the new water heater and brought it up to code on safety on Sunday! He even added the water pan and installed drain pipe for me. I didn't even know such a thing exists (talk about quality...he treats it like repairing his own home!). The best part is his charge for the whole job including new water heater, earthquake straps, valve, drain pan, vent and new connection is far way less than what that plumber was going to charge me. I loved the fact he took the time to show me how things should be done up to code and what works for my situation instead of just giving a price and walking away. He did an awesome job! Unfortunately my landlord insurance's deductible was so high, I asked Mike to give me a quote for fixing the damage in the garage and inside the house. Mike's quote was very competitive and the best part is he is always willing to work with me knowing my situation (thx Mike). My bathroom paint is 16 years old so it was a challenge to match the paint for the new wall. After only quoting me for painting a small wall inside the bathroom, Mike decided on his own to paint the entire bathroom without charging for it. Now that what I call TAKING PRIDE IN YOUR WORK AND STICKING TO YOUR WORD!!! My summary is, Mike successfully completed the entire job and installation in four days. I would highly recommend Mike to anyone and will definitely be using and referring him to everyone I know.

We have been working with Eddie on multiple properties for over 5 years now. His work has ranged from very simple to major remodeling and home repairs (plumbing, electrical, kitchen remodel, tile floors/counter tops, painting, roof repair and more). We really value his honesty, responsiveness and reliability. The guy is personable and he offers good ideas. And his work is very high quality, for very fair rates. A good contractor is a great resource - I would definitely recommend him.

When Chris and his father Tom built an 800sq.ft. detatched two story structure on my property in Costa Mesa. From the get go they were timely and well versed in the art of construction. The job came in on time and at the proposed budget. The overall experience was very good and I would use them again if they'd travel to Hawaii to work for me.

Excellent customer service & professional. Jordan & Tim are a great team, along with the rest of his crew. Jordan gave me an estimate on an RV slab that literally sits on the side of a cliff. He took his time to ensure it was done not only with safety in mind but went the extra mile to stamp, color & border the Slab. So it's not only functional for the RV (a 14k lbs 5th wheel) but it's also a nice area for entertaining when the rv is not parked there. Polite, professional, trustworthy. These guys did a great job. I'll definitely keep them in my contacts for future work on the property. The were also able to salvage some nice stone pieces I had on the previous slab that I'm able to use in the future. I bought a larger RV, so these guys came in and took all the measurements needed to accommodate the bigger rig.

I hired Eldon and HSD Services based on prior reviews, punctuality in setting up estimate and start date, and value for project of painting select rooms/areas inside a home getting ready for rental. We met at the property on Monday, he was hired on Wednesday and ready to begin on Thursday. Due to technical and personal hindrances on my part, they didn't begin until Friday at my request but was understanding and flexible as I added an additional task of painting and hanging closet doors forgot about in the garage. The job was complete within 2 days which was extremely helpful. I highly recommend them and would use them again in the future.

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.

Although I've only selected S.I.G. a short while ago, I'm very impressed with Mike Shaar's property management knowledge and that of his team. Kyle went to my rental during the first week after we signed the agreement, toured the rental and took photos. Mike and Kyle seem to have personalities that relate well to both the owner and tenants. They are a very professional organization and I'm looking forward to a long relationship.

Workimg with Ahmad and his team has been such a great experience for my husband and I. Ahmad's professionalism and his dedication to help landlords and tenants is exceptional. Not only are they able to help you with all the proper lease agreement, background checks and showing your property to potential tenants. His team and him go above and beyond to make this process as easy as possible for everyone. The best part is that Ahmad and his team specially Marianela, is that they are able to make everyone feel comfortable specially in explaining in detail to them in Spanish any sort of document such as contracta, background checks etc. Rest assured you are in great hands with Ahmad and Marianela.

Hired Monica & Joe after seeing some wonderful flips that they had done for investor clients of mine. Fantastic job!! They took a tired old looking house from the 1970's and made it completely amazing looking. A huge punch list was accomplished in a mere 3 weeks, including remodeling the kitchen, all baths, new paint, new carpet, new blinds, deep cleaning. We now have tenants fighting over this property!! All work was very high quality and was accomplished very fast (beyond our wildest expectations). Great communication. Definitely over delivered on both quality and timing! Will use again and again! Thx for a wonderful experience!

Could not be happier with this company. They went above and beyond. We had some water damage to our home and needed a contractor ASAP. GIM came out to my property and assessed the situation right away. They provided me with an estimate and got started right away. My roof needed to be repaired and and I decided to also to some interior renovations. I had my kitchen re done with a modern finish and opened up a wall to give it a bigger feel. There architect supplied me with drawings ahead of time to show how it would look. At the end they put solar on the roof and now I am saving money on my energy bill. Thank you for all the hard work!

I've used Enterprise Property Mgmnt now for about 6 months. Everything has been managed very professionally. My agent, Paula Klingman, has been very responsive and responsible. I'm a long distance landlord...and in my absence I very much appreciate the care and attention to my property and my renter.

I was in search of a handyman for myriad of repairs for my rental property back in August of 2010. I ended up doing a serach on Yellow Pages and came across Mark's advertisement. Mark provided an oustanding service. He was even able to meet me at the rental property on the same day that I contacted him even though it was a little late in the evening. All his work was exceptionally well done. We had a really old bathroom exhaust fan that needed repair. Instead of recommending a new one he was able to find the part to repair it and save us a lot of money. He also did lots of cosmetic work for our walls also. We also had him hook up the new tenants icemaker to the plumbing and he got that done very well. His prices are very reasonable also. I would not hesitate recommending Mark to friends and family.

Devine Real Estate takes all the stress out of Selling and buying your home. I've never felt so comfortable leaving my life in someone else's hands. Jeremy Devine and his team always make sure to keep you up to date on everything that is happening in your home. There were times with other agents that I didn't know if they lost my phone number or just didn't care to inform me on our status. Since Devine Real Estate came into my life, I no longer panic when it comes time to buy or sell. I know I can trust them, not worry, and sign on the dotted line without hesitation. Jeremy helped me find my current home, is helping me sell my fiancés home, finding us our new home, AND their property management will take care of my condo as a rental. I trust them completely, and I don't say that very often!! If you want to move on without all the stress that typically comes with buying and selling, contact Devine Real Estate and Property Management. You won't be sorry!!

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.

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 do you choose a commercial general contractor?

A commercial contractor provides similar services as a residential general contractor but specializes in working with large-scale projects for businesses, schools, nonprofits, governments and development firms. When researching commercial general contractors, review their portfolio of work and confirm they have ample experience working in the area you need. For example, if you are building a small strip mall, ask if the contractors have experience successfully incorporating all the needed elements such as a parking lot, meeting ADA requirements, accessing the proper permits, and completing work on time.

Once you’ve identified several qualified candidates, request bids for your project and then compare the scope of work with your needs and budget. Your commercial general contractor should oversee design, permitting, construction, materials purchase, and adherence to building code and zoning regulations, as well as sticking to an agreed-upon budget and schedule. It’s important to establish clear communication with your future commercial general contractor, as this will mean a smoother process for everyone. For all these reasons, it’s also especially important to follow a few smart hiring practices when it comes to finding a general contractor.

Do property managers need to be licensed?

The licensing requirements for property managers vary from state to state, but many states require property managers to have a real estate broker’s license and in some cases be a legal resident of a state. Property management may not be specified in a state real estate statute, but according to the Institute of Real Estate Management their activities may include advertising the availability of a rental property, discussing a property management agreement with an owner, negotiating leases, showing a rental property and collecting rents.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
