Chris from Dream Home Services has been a lifesaver. I hired Chris after speaking/meeting/using multiple companies for diverse reasons. After hiring him and interacting with him on multiple jobs, I am confident in recommending his company to others. I am certain he will be honest with me about what needs to be done and the options which will be beneficial for myself, as well as my tenants. He has shown flexibility when it comes to scheduling and unexpected/ emergent issues. He arrives as expected and notifies me about any conflicts/ delays in enough time to make changes to the schedule. Chris is always prepared to get to work when he arrives and displays a willingness to evaluate the situation and have a conversation about the game plan. He has provided me with a sense of relief because i know when i call him, he has no issue explaining what work he is doing and why so you understand without making you feel as if you are questioning his motives or challenging him. He has shown his ability to tackle multiple types of work encompassing simple lock installation to electrical modifications.
I am fairly new to multi-unit property ownership, which lead me to hire someone whom took advantage of my ignorance by overcharging me for work, purchasing multiple tools and supplies which he kept, only to discover the work was substandard or done incorrectly. After a year of on-going issues with the other person and only after reviewing receipts/ work orders did i realize the degree to which i had misplaced my trust. Having had such negative experiences, I found THUMBTACK . The site allowed me to submit a request for work i needed to have done on a continuous long term basis. I spoke to a few other people from the site and requested to meet them at my building. When i met with Chris to discuss what i was looking for (general maintenance, dependability and long term goals), he was able to assuage concerns associated with previous experience. I would trust him to do any work i needed and have every intention of continuing to as my go to guy and first call when work needs to be completed.
