Neil came to install our "Sense" intelligent power meter on very short notice, and was very flexible about timing. He quickly installed the device on our main circuit breaker box (and installed a new breaker too). He even explained some aspects of the work as well, just in case I ever have to go in and change any of the wiring (unlikely, since he also nicely bundled all the wires together for easy maintenance). I would definitely hire him again for any work!

Sam was great! My TV looks really nice mounted on my wall; plus he repaired some nitpicking things around the house like my doorbell, front door, cabinets, closet door...that needed repairing since I purchase the house. He is an all-around maintenance and handy man. He will be my go-to-guy from now on.

Jeff was very accommodating and thorough. The 2 jobs that had to get done were not big jobs but in the end were very time consuming. I appreciate his attention to detail and seeing the job through to the end. I live in a condo and he spoke with the condo maintenance to ensure proper installation and purchase of new thermostats. At times it was frustrating, but with someone like Jeff doing the work. I would recommend him for any job big or small.

outlet is installed on the wall rather inside the wall, I guess we need more communication before the installation. Overall, I am happy with his work and value provided

We have been using K&S Remodeling for over a year to do various construction and maintenance and have been extremely happy working with them. They did a major repair of ice damage from the winter of 2015, they built a large 3 bay shed, the rebuilt one of our original 1920 outbuildings and then they remodeled the kitchen and bath of our 1870's farm house. These projects all entailed some serious construction/reconstruction. We had to remove an exterior wall, shore up the supports in the basement, and install support beams where we opened up exterior walls. All the work was done diligently with an eye towards perfection at each step of the process. Not only would I recommend them to my friends, I fully intend to use them for more projects.

I am reviewing as a rental property owner. I started a relationship with Nexus Property Management with 1 rental property and I am currently at 9 units and climbing. I am an out of state owner and there is no way I could feel comfortable about the care of my rental properties if it weren't for all of the professional people at Nexus Property Management. They cover everything: investment property purchases, management, leasing, and maintenance. And almost all correspondence, bills, money contributions, and maintenance requests can be made through their online Nexus Portal. Having Nexus property Management managing my properties takes all the worries out of rental property ownership. And the time I save allows me to focus on other investment opportunities and that, helps me buy more investment rental property!

Kyle has been managing properties for my family for approximately 9 years. He has done an excellent job for us. Urgent repairs and maintenance are taken care of immediately. He also responds immediately to any questions or requests that we may have. Kyle has great judgement on what needs to be done and when/if he needs our input. He has great knowledge of real estate market environment and does due diligence by requesting for multiple quotes for repair/maintenance work. I highly recommend him as a property manager.

Matt Cicciari has been an extraordinary resource in helping us with the various challenges in maintaining our 86 year old home. Our recent challenge was finding a professional chimney repair company to replace the chimney liners in our fire place. Unfortunately a opossum had made a nest in the chimney and had damaged the liners for both the fireplace and heater. Matt’s extensive industry knowledge and detailed understanding of construction requirements enabled us to find and engage a repair company in a timely manner. Our chimney was professionally repaired at a reasonable price thanks to Matt. We highly recommend CCRE Construction for projects both large and small. When we moved into our 80 year old house in 2012, Matt recognized the limitations and vulnerability of the smoke alarms. Because of his expertise, he repositioned the alarms and replaced them with the most up to date battery operated units. We also had a front door that had an annoying squeak every time it opened or closed. We routinely sprayed the hinges with silicone lubricant that only lasted a short time. Matt quickly diagnosed the problem and provided the solution. He removed the door, thoroughly cleaned the hinges and lubricated them white lithium grease. Four years later the door still quietly opens and closes. Because of their honesty, professionalism and expertise we highly recommend CCRE Construction for all home maintenance and improvement projects Tim Bard

Ted and Lauren at ECMD have been managing property for us for almost 3 years. It has been a pleasure working with them as they combine an institutional background with a personal touch in everything they do. It is rare to find a property manager with as much integrity as ECMD. They are forthright, honest and extremely hard working. Ted has done a great job leasing units at our building and pushing rents to new levels, while Lauren is a wiz when it comes to accounting, back office operations and logistics. The books every month are tight and every cent can be tracked. For a property 10-75 units, ECMD offers the best value proposition in the market and maybe even more importantly, they are great people. We would highly recommend ECMD for both residential and commercial property management in the Boston area.

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.

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.

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.

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 a handyman charge?

The national average rate for handyman jobs is $90-$160. A handyman performs general maintenance and repairs for residential and commercial properties. A handyman may charge a flat fee for standard services that take a predictable amount of time, such as installing a new appliance, as well as an hourly rate for larger projects such as digging out and replacing a rotted fence post. A cost-saving strategy when hiring a handyman is to bundle all the tasks you want them to do into one visit to make the most of any minimum service fee. Hourly rates for a handyman can average $50-$100 per hour. Pricing will depend on skill and experience required for the job, as well as regional labor rates. Here are a few examples of average handyman flat rates.

  • Attic ladder replacement: $150.
  • Toilet replacement: $75.
  • Ceiling fan and light fixtures: $75.
  • Faucet replacement: $125.
  • Garbage disposal: $75.
