We needed some outdoor lights replaced, some checked as they had stopped working. James came over and right away started tackling the problem areas. James was so polite , so courteous , patient and professional at the same time. He kept finishing one project after another from a list of things that I pointed out to him. From small as changing light bulbs to checking a circuit breaker He was not satisfied till he had done each and everything perfectly I highly recommend James for any and all electrical work and will be giving his reference to friends and anyone looking for a electrician. When he left us on the second day of work he mentioned he was a handyman and painter too- my husband offered him a painting job to be done this coming week

Mike assembled a large dining room buffet expertly and did some odd jobs around my apartment. I sent requests for handyman services on Thumbtack as well as Amazon home services with directions for assembly. It was obvious Mike was the only vendor who looked at the instructions. With all the great reviews and his response to my request made me comfortable hiring him. As I am a single women living alone this is of the utmost importance to me. His number is now in my phone and I will definitely call him again without hesitation. Ps. He's also very nice. Mary

Great service and will be our go-to contact for handyman services. Greivin was incredibly timely and flexible in working on our projects. He was professional and polite and and well-spoken and the end results are high quality. I especially appreciate his attention to detail to make sure the project outcomes were as I'd intended and his thoughtful suggestions to our project list really improved the functionality for end results that were actually even better than expected.

Pete's service was excellent. From the first phone call, he was fair in his price and he called to confirm his appointment. He was on time. He explained his service and even gave me homeowners tips on how to maintain my carpet. Discovered he is a handy man and while he was repairing my carpet, he repaired 2 of my bedroom doorknobs. He will become my new handyman!!! Will definitely recommend him to my friends and neighbors!!!!

Abraham was punctual, professional, and personable. We had to reschedule the work and he was flexible with the change of date. I will definitely call him for other jobs (wall hanging, handyman, etc.) in the future. He seems like a really nice guy and I'm happy with the job he did.

Great work by City Handyman. He had a tough install with a dog door (turns out my outside door had some metal in it!) but he powered through it until the job was done. Very friendly and professional.

We needed a handyman and Darin knew how to address the 3 unusual problems we had. He did an excellent job. -- he told me he had learned to fix things when he was a child. He brought all the tools and supplies he needed. We would definitely call him again if we have any job requiring a handyman.

Gino was fantastic. He fixed two separate problems for me - one was a loose ceiling fan that he re-attached and tightened (and I now feel much safer) and the other was installing a new light line and plastering up the roof all around. His work was excellent and when I had a problem with the latter job he corrected it promptly. He is always incredibly fast to respond and as reliable as I could ask for. Highly recommended for all your household needs!

I'm glad I hired Rick to work on my projects (assemble and install two ceiling fans, replace faucet, medicine cabinet and light in the bathroom. He used his professional judgement on a few of the items rather than just getting the job done because I asked. Turns out my entire apartment is jerry-rigged and Rick spent several more hours here than he had planned. I'm glad Rick took his time to do it right. I was skeptical hiring a handyman here in NYC, but Rick was great and I'd definitely hire him again in the future.

Jaime helped me on a huge project for a client. He was prompt, knowledgeable and handy as can be. I dont know how I would have completed that project without him. He is definitely more than just handy but creative in design. The experience and energy that he brings to this platform will take him far. I'm a Top Pro on Thumbtack and I endorse Jaime as your next handyman. Feel free to read the review attached that was given by our happy client Tim below. Give him a chance and you will be grateful.

Daniel backed me up when the handyman I initially hired was a no-show. Even though I had already moved out, he was willing to help with repairs based on my instructions, whereas the first hire demanded I be there to show him what I wanted done. He documented everything he did and sent me photos. He even took photos of the receipts he obtained when he went to purchase materials and I paid him exactly what he paid for them, no more. Very professional. I highly recommend Daniel.
