I needed an electrician to repair a ceiling fan in a rental property. Albert answered my request with a reasonable quote and said he was available the next day, which was a Saturday. He went to the property and removed the fan at the request of the tenant and stored it for me. I will absolutely use Albert to install the new fan when it arrives. It is really nice to be able to find skilled professionals I can trust because I'm not near the property and doing maintenance tasks from a distance is not easy. Thank you Thumbtack!

Reese Turbin Services charges reasonable rates and perform their services very well. Reese and his associate Chris were prompt, courteous, and very professional. They got the job done in about a little over 2 hours (Assembled 2 Book Cases). RTS: has plenty of spare parts, mallets, drills, glue,screw drivers, Manuals, and blankets (To protect your furniture while it's being assembled) They'll check your furniture manufacturer website for the model/make/number to get an accurate quote for your specific type of job. One of the parts in one of the kits was faulty so they consulted with me first, then fixed the situation immediately. In my opinion, they have a lot of experience doing this and are nice / interesting guys to talk to as well.

Just wanted to share my experience using Thumbtack. We needed a large yard work project done and chose Julios lawn care services from the Thumbtack providers provided. We could not have been more pleased with the job done by Domingo and his team. They were prompt, courteous, worked very hard and efficiently. They completed the task quickly and left the yard clean and neat and removed all debris. Domingo was accessible and responded to any questions quickly. I would recommend this provider to anyone and would definitely use them again when I need lawn services done. I'd give them 10 stars if I could!!!

Tim Williams, owner of DuPage Home services has provided plumbing services to our home for the last 10 years. His service is always dependable and for the quality of the plumbing work, very affordable. He has come out at night and on the weekend to fix leaks and back ups whenever we needed him. I would recommend DuPage Home Services without reservation.

Ron and his son were awesome! Ron explained things over the phone, offered an estimate, and scheduled the work. He showed up on time and listened to everything I needed to explain about the job. The job was a bit more complex than originally thought and it took them some time on a 2nd day but the price was still within our expectations. They even took the time to talk afterward and explain various maintenance and care suggestions and looked at some other areas of our house that we may be interested in having work done. I guarantee I will be calling him again in the future for that additional work!

Patrick was one of the first to reply to my Thumbtack lawnmower repair request, and everything went better than expected. He was able to schedule a time sooner than I expected, he completed the repair quickly, and offered a couple helpful suggestions for use and maintenance. I will definitely call Patrick for my next lawnmower maintenance. - Mike in Rolling Meadows

The team at GC Realty have been responsive and professional throughout the process of trying to rent my home as I tried to simultaneously sell it. They did find me a renter at the same time I found a buyer, but the business is theirs if we don't sell. Their maintenance team was great as well. I would not hesitate to use them again.

Patrick did a great job updating 2 shower valves and rerouting sink plumbing for a kitchen remodel. He even updated some piping to code that was not part of the original work scope. He was very helpful in recommending the right valves and future maintenance. Patrick was also very careful with his tile cuts as that was are only access point. He made a perfect cut that is easy to patch without damaging any other surrounding tiles. Highly recommended and definitely will be my Go To plumber from now on. I even have him coming back for some addition work.

I am a General Contractor in the Chicagoland area and I have been using Mariusz of Excellent Painting Inc as my sub contractor for the past few years for all my painting and decking jobs. Mariusz is simply fantastic! He is knowledgeable, professional, and most of all he is punctual. Every customer of mine that he has done work for has had nothing but glowing reviews about his work and more importantly his character. Mariusz continues to do work for me to this day. If you are looking for quality, call Excellent Painting. You will not be disappointed. Rey

I have been associated with Abha Dey (iCalyx) since 2009 for following and would highly recommend her: 1. Purchase of Townhome 2. Rental Property Management My experience working with Abha has been superb. She is true professional who works in the best interests of her clients. Timely responses to emails, immediate followup when needed is her core strength. She was always willing to show as many properties as I wanted - never frustrated if I wanted to see one more! During the final negotiations, she was awesome in ensuring the outcome was to my satisfaction - always asking me for my opinion at every step and never pushing for a quick deal. Abha & Abhijit have provided excellent property management services over the years. All documents are centrally stored on the internet and easily accessible. Any service calls are arranged immediately. This has ensured good upkeep of my property.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

What does a handyman do?

A handyman is a skilled laborer who provides basic home repairs. Anyone can call themselves a handyman, although most who do so are skilled with repairs and home projects. Reading reviews is a good way to determine their fitness for your job. The tasks a handyman can perform include assembling furniture, painting interiors and exteriors, repairing fences, repairing broken doors or replacing trim, hanging lights, hooking up appliances, and much more. Handymen may have flat fees for certain services, or charge an hourly rate. Handyman rates are often lower than those of a contractor, as they don’t have the same specialization. Some states have no limit on the work a handyman can perform, while others do. For example, California’s Building and Professions Code section 7048 (small operations) permits handymen to provide work similar to that of a contractor (floor installation, painting, etc.) provided the total cost of labor and materials does not exceed $500. A handyman is a great resource for minor home repairs at a lower cost than a licensed contractor, but for more complex projects, it pays to hire a specialized contractor. Fore more, check out our tips for smart hiring on Thumbtack.

How do you find a good handyman?

Finding a good handyman can change your life. Within days, the endless list of insurmountable tasks that were either out of your skill range or impossible to fit into your busy schedule can be completed. If you know you want help but aren’t sure how to hire the right pro, ask these questions to find the right fit:

  • What is your work experience? If you are putting in a tile backsplash, you want someone experienced with the task, not someone who generally does painting and junk removal.
  • How much do you charge? Handymen often charge hourly rates that vary based on the complexity of the task they’re hired to do, as well as flat rates for standard jobs. Be clear about what they’ll charge before you hire them.
    • On that note, discuss payment details. It’s wise not to pay all the money up front, especially for larger projects. You may be able to pay a deposit for materials and pay the remainder upon project completion.
  • How long will the job take you to complete? If the handyman is as busy as you are and a fence repair is going to take months, you should probably find another qualified handyman for the job.

Read client reviews and follow up with references to make sure you’re choosing the right handyman for your projects. For more, check out our tips for smart hiring on Thumbtack.

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 much does it cost to have your lawn mowed?

Regular lawn maintenance can do wonders for your home’s curb appeal. Professional lawn care prices will vary based on the regional cost to do business and regional cost of labor, the size of your lawn, and any additional services you may desire such as edging or mulching. The national average for lawn mowing costs is $30-$50. Pros may charge an hourly rate, a flat rate or by the square foot (an acre contains 43,560 square feet). Square footage rates factor in the professional’s time, the use of their equipment, and the gas to operate the mower. Distance may also affect cost: If you live outside the company’s standard service range, you may pay an additional travel fee. Here are some examples of average prices for mowing and lawn maintenance:

  • Up to 8,000-square-foot property: $30 per week/$120 per month.
    • Bimonthly: $40 per service/$80 per month.
    • One time only: $45 per service.
      • Prices include mowing all turf grass areas; trimming grass away from fences, structures, trees, and lawn edges; and clearing or blowing all grass trimmings from driveways, sidewalks, curbs, etc.
  • Hourly rate: $25 per hour (including travel, equipment costs and labor).
  • Lot size:
    • Smaller lots in subdivisions: $35.
    • Half-acre lot: $50.
    • One-acre lot: $100.
