Ron contacted me immediately regarding my request and I explained what I wanted done, a set of speakers mounted and a TV mounted in the master bed room. He showed up on time and did a great job. He was not the cheapest but I'm happy to pay a little more for a qualified professional to do the job correctly. I highly recommend Ron for any home audio work!!

I asked Brian to reassemble my IKEA furniture and to install two LED TVs on walls. He was both professional and fully-dedicated in completing the jobs. He was on time as he promised, and kept being a perfectionest as he completes the jobs. I would recommend him to my friends without any reservation, and would like to work with him in the future, too.

Moved into our house about a year ago and have had hired many to help with projects in our home. Walt is by far the best we have hired. I wish I found him sooner. He did crown molding, chair rails, bead board, wainscoting, trim/casing around all of our windows including a massive foyer window & trimmed out all the entryways. Such a pleasant person, beyond fair pricing, great to work ( gave us suggestions and options with trim) and just an all around great job! Super hard worker, extremely clean and all of this was completed in about 3 1/2 days! My husband and I couldn't be happier. Will definitely be calling him again and have given his name to a friend of mine already. Awesome Job! Thanks so much Walt, our house looks incredible!

Hired Elmo to mount a couple of tvs and install electric in the basement. He did a great job. He stuck by the price he quoted me even though he ran into some roadblocks and was over longer than expected. He explains everything where you can understand him and is very patient. I highly recommend him. I know he will be our new handyman.

We had Thomas remove & install three new black ceiling fans with lights. We also had him install our flat screen TV in our living room. He did excellent work. My fans are beautiful and now we have so much light in our home. The TV was mounted where I wanted it and everything was cleaned up. He even took the boxes back to our alley. Thomas had a very friendly personality and it was a pleasure to have him install in our home. I recommend his services.

I hired Ivaylo to mount a projector and projector screen, install the HDMI wire and help figure out the complex audio wiring in my house. He was extremely professional, and spent almost an hour before the project officially started studying the discussing with me all the possible options. Once he started the work, he was efficient, professional and very courteous. He offered the option to buy his own equipment, but was never pushy and proactively explained the cost and quality implications of me purchasing my own stuff on Amazon or other places. His rates were also very reasonable. Overall, an A+ experience, would never hesitate to hire him again, which I probably will if I need any additional changes to my AV setup.
