We called Rene, using Thumbtack, after having a nightmare of a Craigslist experience, trying to get our foyer and living room painted. Not only did he exceed our expectations in punctuality, presence, and quality, but Rene was also competitive in price.
He went the extra mile, from patching and preparing previous drywall damage, to touching up the trim for a cleaner look.
Since we were active in the house throughout the day, we would often ask random questions or strike up conversation. Rene is really personable and relatable.
It's obvious that Rene takes a lot of pride in his work, and he made it clear that we should point out anything that required touching up while he was there. He even suggested that, because of the lighting, we might notice some places that needed touching up once the sun came back out. He assured us that, since we weren't a far drive, he'd come back one time to fix anything - free of charge. We didn't need to, though, as we didn't find any spots in the new light.
On the way out the door, Rene spotted leaves bunched up in my gutter,and asked if we wanted him to set his ladder up and pull them out. We refused to let him spend any more time with us, because his kids were waiting on him for a family trip to see Christmas lights.
We'll be happy to call Rene for future needs as well as recommend him to friends that need painting services. We received true, A+ service, and we're happy that we now, "know a guy."
