About this pro
Caveat Emptor (Let the Buyer Beware!) I contacted this “gentleman” through Thumbtack (http//thumbtack.com), as a potential contractor for a painting project. I did not hire this company/individual, nor would I recommend doing business with him/them. This vendor has more than one extremely negative review; after dealing with them, I was literally repulsed by their interactions with me as a potential customer, and was so strongly influenced by their disregard for me, that I felt it only appropriate to share with others. I’ve compiled a brief PDF of the entirety of our communications thread, as well as related “screen shots”. I genuinely feel sorry for the folks that work for this individual. Hopefully, by sharing this information, you will also be spared a “soap opera”, and the abuse dispensed by a potential vendor. If I encountered this many issues before I was able to solicit a bid, I shudder to think about what it would be like to actually work with this individual. (Thumbtack won't allow a PDF to be posted; I've been able to post 3 of 5 pages. Hopefully, you'll get the gist of what I'm wanting to share with folks.)Apr 8, 2018Verified
Was looking for quotes, he replied but wasn’t hired. Attached is his response, completely unprofessional and just rude. I feel like I dodged a bullet by not hiring him. BEWAREMar 19, 2018VerifiedJames B.'s reply
This person was asking me to set it aside time for them to come and do their job, but never even bothered to give me a phone call to schedule this or to inquire about what my prices are for this kind of service. She was told that professionals pay to reply to her request, but simply decided that it was okay for me to pay the bill for her. This is why my response is what it was. If you expect professionals like us to be able to keep reasonable prices, you can't expect us to keep paying on our end in advance, and not get any kind of result whatsoever. Advertising certainly cost money, but rude customers cost even more.

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Our pricing system is a bit of a science. It requires us to look at most things first before giving a price. However, as an average, my company needs to clear $85.00 per hour for our crew in order to be able to pay all of our overhead (Like the many types of insurance that we need to carry), and to able to turn a profit, and be a true capitalist here in the good ole U.S.A.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Yes, I am always attending new workshops, and reading up on the newest industry trends.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I had retired from the insurance business, because I felt that I had accomplished all the I could in that field. I was the best of the best when it came to being an insurance agent. Throughout my entire life I have refurbished home on many levels, and I always enjoyed this kind of work. Therefore, I started this contracting business. I had always been very talented in fixing things, and I wanted to share that pride of my knowledge and work with others. I am one of the few people in this world that truly enjoys what he does. Bottom line.....I make the world a more beautiful place to live in.
