I'm not the type to write reviews. I've only written 2 aside from this, when something is outstandingly good or outstandingly bad. Everything else is business as usual. This review is for EBRR Property Maintenance Services. I am writing because they are really really good! And the knowledge is great and the service is outstanding. I am sure the crew will make me proud if I am referring them to someone. A great company altogether.. Thanks a lot EBRR.

Trenton arrived on time and was very professional. He took a look at the two items that I had for the job and began immediately. He was efficient and careful not to scratch my wood floors. He cleaned up after himself. I had a partially assembled Ikea desk and he figured out that I'd used screws in the wrong place. I am very pleased with his work and will use his services again in the near future.

My review: Jose of EES Services arrived on the date and time promised, in fact, he showed up early to accommodate my schedule. He was professional, polite, and thoughtful in our interaction. He did the job thoroughly and completely, and worked in the pouring rain to get my gutter cleaned! I couldn't be happier with the result and I highly recommend EES Services for any of your home repair needs.

Billy replaced our exterior window and door moldings and installed deck flashing. He was a pleasure to work with right from the start. He was quick to come out for an estimate and his prices were very reasonable. He used high quality, low maintenance products and was happy to answer any questions I had. I found him very punctual and also very personable. I will be hiring Billy again in the future and would recommend him to my friends and family.

We hired Erick's service for deep cleaning our house prior to listing it for sale. Previous experiences with other cleaning services have been hit or miss so we were a bit anxious, given that a good cleaning job is really important for the house to show well for sale. I cannot praise Erick's team of two women (his family in part) enough for the cleaning job they did in our house. I will give you specific examples which portray their exceptional work - 1. we recently touched up paint on the walls and a few drops probably spilled on the floor. His crew went down on the floor to scrub minute drops off while vacuuming/mopping our hardwood floor; 2. They took out the glass receptacles off the light fixtures and washed them to make them appear new (and they never were so clean when we lived in the house!). 3. They opened the windows and dusted and wiped off dirt from the outside of the window. 4. Bathrooms and kitchen with granite counter top were spotless and shiny! We believe the house shows very well to make the best impression for potential buyers. I will strongly recommend Erick and his team for cleaning services, and actually like the fact that it is a small, family run venture as opposed to the large scale cleaning services. SLV

I originally hired this company for painting work, but ultimately ended up hiring Langway Brothers to prepare the home for the rental market. Mr. Langway and his crew were very professional. When he spotted additional problems, he informed me promptly. He offered a very reasonable rate and was able to meet my very short timeline for completion. I will definitely use Langway Brothers again & I highly recommend them for any of your home maintenance needs!

So I had reached out to them about a month back with roof maintenance questions (and because I had a pesky leak). They usually do repairs once they come out, so I decided to wait to get other estimates. When the great rainwaters of 072018 hit and other leaks showed up, I was desperate. I reached out to some of the people I had prior contacted with the hopes that they might fit me in this week! Within an hr, Mark called back and said he might be able to do it this very night! So I had him come out, he took pictures, showed me the issues and got to work. He had to take a break because of the aforementioned rain, but he was soon done, and even texted me pictures of the problem area. He also fixed a couple other areas that had popped nails. (And gave me some future maintenance recommendations). The icing on the cake is that they take credit/debit cards and his estimate was exactly what I owed. He noticed a vent pipe that had gotten disconnected and he also fixed that for me AFTER I paid him. I was quite impressed. All that's left is to see if there's any subsequent leaking. I hope not! #fingerscrossed

I needed a contractor to refurbish a 15 year old townhouse prior to selling. It was a rental property 45 miles away, so I needed someone to manage and execute the entire job (about $15K worth) mostly unsupervised. Dale did an excellent job, and stayed on the job (more than 2 weeks) until everything was done. It required many skills (patching, painting, flooring, electrical, plumbing, cleaning, staining (deck), landscaping, and hauling.) He literally gave my townhouse a "New Image" inside and out, with great curb appeal. Dale was completely trustworthy, and I highly recommend him for any job you have.

I can’t say enough about how impressed I am with this company!! I own three rental units that have been overwhelming to me. Within a few days of contacting Shanicka, she had ALL of my problems resolved with HUD inspectors, maintenance people and my tenants. My rentals were becoming an overwhelming investment for me and wishing a week Shanicka had EVERYTHING running smoothly. I’m probably going to acquire more rental properties now that I have Property Wise in my corner to run things!!

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.
