Arrived on time, clearly explained what he would do to clean the gutters and related debris. Did a professional job at a very reasonable rate, will ask him back again to do related maintenance work when needed.

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!

I worked with Jim recently on a couple of home maintenance projects. He was responsive, affordable and both projects were completed quickly and without any surprises. I will definitely contact/work with Jim again in the future.

Needed old wooden exterior shutters removed and new plastic shutters replaced. Jorge arrived on time and did ia wonderful job. Very polite and personable person. Cleaned up afterward and actually performed a walk through with me to ensure that I was completely satisfied with his work. I will most definitely consider him for other upcoming projects as he seems most knowledgeable in many areas of general home repair and maintenance. His price was quite reasonable too! I highly recommend Jorge for any home repair or updating projects! hjp

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.

Jakob and his crew did an excellent job. They replaced a very old wood patio with stone and it looks beautiful. They were very professional, punctual, produced a quality job and we could not have been more pleased. We had his crew return a few days later and lay mulch all round our fence and yard and they also did an excellent job on that. We will definitely use his services again when we decide to landscape our front yard. You will not be disappointed with his work.

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.

RJ Development delivered impeccable service. I admit I was hesitant based on a negative review previously written, however the way Rich followed up with me, and answered all my questions really put me at ease. He took the time to come to our home to clarify what was needed. He kept to the pricing. This is a very nice contractor and very personable. I would recommend him without hesitation!

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

JD King is extremely professional, courteous and thorough. I had just moved in and he cleaned my entire house. It needed a lot of TLC and he spent 7 hrs cleaning. He did an excellent job. He truly cleans from floor to ceiling and even does windows. He brings his own supplies. He now cleans for me biweekly. I have already recommended him to a friend of mine.

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.

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.
