Folks, there are professionals, and then there are professionals. If I could give Aaron 6-stars here on Thumbtack I totally would have. Aaron deserved nothing short of a total 6-star rating. Aaron is the kind of professional you want to hire, invite to your home, and trust him completely for the job. Aaron was fair, an excellent communicator, and a detailed perfectionist.
Here's a bit of the whole story:
Aaron was naturally very good at what he does--there's absolutely no doubt of that--but what made him stood out? It was his dedication to performance, to achieve a perfect outcome, to see the results of his work. Aaron is a perfectionist! An absolutely awesome perfectionist! See, the job we hired him to do turned out to be a lot more complicated than we had originally thought--our old house was wonky and uneven, weirdly angled, and all sorts of messed up--so it was on us (the homeowners) that the job was a lot more than originally proposed. We even felt bad. But Aaron took the time to precisely handcraft the Baseboards to a precise, detailed fit, perfect fit. Why was that so impressive? Because he didn't have to--you see, the homeowners gave up first and was willing to accept a "good enough" end-result because the house was so wonky. But guess what? Aaron continued to perfect it until it was just fabulously perfect! You see, Aaron could have walked away with a 5-star job, right? But he didn't. He was so set on getting everything perfect.
Folks, this the kind of professional you really want to hire. I am sure you can find many 5-star professionals out there (and sure, there are many of them out there) But you won't easily come across many 6-star perfectionists out there. Furthermore,
Communications - EXCELLENT. Aaron kept us appraised of status, plan, time, and so on every step of the way. Everything was well planned in terms of time and progress. Wow!
Fairness - EXCELLENT. Aaron gave a more than fair quote and we felt bad in the end because the job turned out a lot more complicated than we thought. But you see, Aaron wasn't going after the money, instead, he really just wanted to get the job done perfectly and done beautifully. Rarely these days do you find someone who just wants to do a perfect job and not doing it for the money. So, Wow!
Past Reviews - all perfect scores! When we saw the initial bid coming across we saw Aaron had perfect score (all 5 stars) from those other homeowners. We thought, well, all those other people must knew something so we hired Aaron too--and now we know why everyone else all gave him 5-star rave reviews!
Aaron cleaned up after himself, he did the job well, he was on-time each time, he was respectful of the home, respectful of the time, and he worked well with flexibility, and much more. Again, he is definitely someone you can (and should) trust. We were 100% satisfied and we are 100% going to ask for him again for all future jobs.
In short and in conclusion: The best nutshell I can put in the review here is that 1) you won't easily come across another 6-star professional who goes ABOVE AND BEYOND to make sure everything is as perfect as they can be, 2) you won't easily come across someone you can totally trust these days who treats your home like his own. Aaron is someone you should hire.
Take my words, folks, we highly recommend Aaron, we would give him 6 stars and give our 120% confidence in him. Trust us!!
Professional, courteous, respectful, dedicated, perfectionist, punctual, and very friendly!!
I will put some photos here with the review. The photos do not do justice to the amount of detailed, hand-craft work that was put in. Keep in mind the entire house drywall was all angled weird and wrong, yet the finished baseboard looked perfect. I just want to share with you how much detailed work was put in and how much energy was spent on perfecting these corners. Again, it may look easy but it was very, very difficult!
