    Reese brought along a helper, Gerald, who was also very good and patient with my requests. They were here about 6 hrs and hung multiple pictures, mirrors and drapes. I'd use them again if I had something big to hang.

    Excellent work! Reece is very responsive, reliable and knowledgeable. My project was not simple, so it required several emails back and forth - and all my questions and concerned were promptly addressed. On the day of the project, Reece and his helper showed up on time, worked quickly and neatly. The end result is beautiful. Highly recommended!

    About this pro

    It doesn't stand out. It looks right, it looks perfect, it looks like the one on the showroom floor. It looks like the one in the catalog. When you see the finished product, you can't tell that we had to supply extra parts, or do a work-around because the manufacturer messed up, and things did not fit together the way they were supposed to. For the picture hanging: 3 years ago, I had one tiny case of picture-nails from Home Depot. Now, due to demand: I have two large cases of assorted picture hanging supplies, plus more in the van. I bring a premium service to my picture hanging clients. Rubber or Felt pads are placed on the lower corners of frames. Many of the discount art stores (Including IKEA) sell artwork that has no hardware on the backside. I will wire frames, or attach the d-ring strap hangers, or the saw-tooth hangers, saving my clients a trip to a specialty framing shop. I routinely work with, and hang things that are unusual. Large mirrors, heavy things are just another day at the office. I have clients in McMansions all over the area. One celebrity client, and a number of clients who drive Tesla's. But, I also have senior citizen clients who are often on fixed incomes. I do not repair or restore high value antique furniture. These seniors often have broken or disfunctional particle board furniture, and I can get it back to functional with a simple repair (using glue, and or some screws and brackets). This is rewarding for me. On some of the large IKEA jobs, when we are done, the room looks like something out of a magazine, and that is rewarding. Setting up large-scale storage systems in; garages, basements, walk-in closets so people can begin to get their clutter under control is rewarding. Now, it is very rare for me drive home angry. When I did white-collar office work using my EXCEL and WORD skills, I drove home angry all the time. Being nice and polite to coworkers who are; bullies, lazy, rude, etc. is very taxing. Don't get me wrong, they aren't all like that. But when they are, well.....

      Q & A

      • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
        For now, it is a half day minimum. It was a painful decision, but I had to start turning down small one piece assembly jobs in order to make my business profitable.
      • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
        For assembly jobs; if the customer is able to give me specific product information, I can usually obtain the assembly manual, review it, and come up with a job estimate that I will almost always stand by. I do not do hourly rates. If I miscalculate, and the job takes several hours longer than anticipated, that is my loss. I don't like being rushed. Recently, I did a job for a client who had a tradesman in for some other job. That tradesman had to make four trips to his car, and billed the client for the time. That client was not planning on bringing that tradesman back for more work. For the pictures and mirrors, if they are large and heavy, it helps to have the customer email me photos of the backside of the item. For older heavy items, often times the wires on the back are frayed, and new wiring and possibly D-ring straps must be put in place.
      • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
        Dad. I think the one lesson above all others was: "If there is a problem, you do not have a tantrum, use your brain and figure it out". I have gone through a number of assistants, the good ones all learned pretty much the same thing from their Dad.
