Albert is honest and prompt. Job is done in 2 visits since we had issues with installation first round. Cost for installation went bit higher than what I thought since 2 visits. But Albert tried to make me happy by installing a new switch so that Fan and light could be operated separately from wall.

Golden came to our house 4 hours before the Super Bowl. He was on time, courteous, friendly, and his work was outstanding. I looked at these reviews before I decided to go with Has Proz. Everything I read was true. I would not hesitate to recommend Has Proz to anyone. Book your home theater installation services through them. You won't be disappointed.

All jokes aside, do yourself a favor and simply allow Harrison to come out and provide an estimate. I promise, 1. you'll certainly end up hiring him and 2. you'll hire him again for any future installation services you may need, and 3. you'll feel a sense of trust and be beyond satisfied with the work. Ultra talented, hardworking and simply does good business. Dale Q. Williams

Claudio did excellent work and was a pleasure to work with. He was able to come out quickly and bid on a somewhat complicated set of tasks. He clearly knew exactly how to hang my new sliding barn door, and skillfully moved and rewired my doorbell system and switchplates to accommodate the new sliding door. He also did some light demo work and repainting and was willing to pick up some materials for the job when I didn't have the right paint on hand when I thought I did. He was responsive on text messaging and was flexible on rescheduling when one of my key pieces of the job was not shipped on time and unfortunately pushed back our planned timeline. I would recommend Claudio for handywork and would not hesitate to call him again for another job. Thanks again Claudio!

Thank you Premiere for raising the industry standard!

From the immediate response to my Saturday-night Thumbtack request to the Sunday morning house call, Eugene is a dream come true. He came to fix a very tough problem in the inside-wall wiring for our home theater system, but managed to solve several other problems so thorny we had given up. I'm so confident in his skill and expertise, we are asking him to install more devices we've always wanted but were afraid would never work properly when added on to our existing system.

Luke is a perfectionist when it comes to the completion of a project; this includes detailed planning, meticulous installation and complete clean-up. We were so impressed with Luke's, the owner, work, we called him back and expanded the project. Great work and competitive price! Thank you, Luke.

Ivaylo was very professional and worked hard to create a solution that fit our budget. Specifically we moved into a new home that had been previously wired for cable and sound in a customary way that was highly outdated and didn't function with modern equipment (e.g. comcast xfinity). Ivaylo presented us with different options to bring the house up-to-date, and disclosed the pricing for each. After discussing the options with him and choosing one, he worked hard to execute and deliver exactly what we asked for. I highly recommend him for any job (whether simple or complicated) that involves home technology (a/v, cable, home theater systems, etc.)

I recently had a smart TV/video game/surround sound system set up and installed by Williams home theater and everything was great. Steven (who is the owner) not only helped me decide on a placement that I'd personally like now and I to the future but also answered all of my questions and helped me navigate my new smart TV and remote. I'm pretty tech savvy myself, I don't normally need much guidance but even I learned a few tricks. I was a bit nervous choosing an installation company because it was my first time; maybe I got lucky, but I couldn't be happier 2 months later. Highly recommend!

Home Systems is the kind of company that gives the personal attention that is so hard to find with some of these larger businesses. No question was ever overlooked and everything was thoroughly explained. Not only were technicians punctual, but they were also very clean and respectful of our home. They also spent the time to walk us through the system instead of rushing to their next appointment. The custom quality of the final project was the icing on the cake!

We asked Jesse to install two TVs in our home based on a referral. He worked quickly and with precision. He had a lot of knowledge and recommendations for our space which was not your typical wall mount. Definitely someone we can trust, we were very pleased.

Andy is incredibly reliable - at all times! Has done a fantastic job with our entire system from set up to maintenance / additions. We have a relatively complex integrated set up (15 sonos zones, every gaming system, Apple networking & TVs throughout and more) and even the most challenging of assignments or add-ons we throw at it, Andy is there for us and powers through with the best of attitude and top shelf skills.
