Jeff was very accommodating with the short deadline he was faced with. He assembled at least 10 pieces of furniture 4 hours! Each item was well put together. Even when the item came with a few glitches like the wrong nails, he figured out a solution. He was well worth the money and I will definitely use his services again for my interior design business.

I hired Jason for fixing my water heater and he did a great job with it (changed the heating elements and thermostats leaving the area clean). He did also help with a few questions I had about other improvements/maintenance to the house. He is professional, very courteous and was punctual to the time he promised on Thumbtack. Glad I chose him for the work. Highly recommended.

Jerome was great! He his communication and quick responses were greatly appreciated. His quality of work was tremendous and he will be the first person I call next time I need an installation, repair, or any home maintenance questions. Clean and efficient job while installing a TV mount in my place and made sure we were satisfied with the results. Jerome was very personable and enjoyed having him install the TV wall mount.

I couldn’t be happier with Jamel’s service. He was super quick to reply and set up an appointment. When he was setting up my tv mount, he was quick and took the time to show me how to fully operate it (there’s a lot of parts to a full motion tv mount). I will definitely be working with him for other projects in the future.

Although I was extremely skeptical about hiring a stranger online to do work in my home, Travis provided me with a wonderful experience. Not only did he do exceptional work, he was very neat, well mannered and thoughtful. He even offered to mount this huge mirror I had resting against my bedroom wall. I will definitely hire him for all of my future home construction and installation needs!

James is awesome guy. Very prompt, friendly, helpful courteous and a wonderful guy. I love him. He is very knowledgeable. When the job was looking difficult because of the age of Property, James figured out how to solve the problem and even the Chandelier seem to be complicated he studied it and worked out the solution very quickly. I would recommend anyone and everyone to this amazing new friend I made. He is my all time maintenance and handyman. I nearly forget this one, very organized, beat and clean. Thanks to thumbtack again and thank you God for sending James.

Bertie and his guys were able to do what I couldn't and really saved the day. The elevator in my building has been in the state of repair for over 2 months and after being told it was going to be up and working this week, I went ahead and ordered a new couch and tv stand that I've been waiting to order. Long story short, furniture arrived, elevator still not working, and I live on the 5th floor. Bertie responded to my cry for help very promptly with a reasonable quote and was able to help me same day. He and his team carried all the heavy stuff up 5 flights and took my old stuff down to the trash as well. I write this from my new couch very happy that Bertie was here to help me. I definitely recommend!

Eddy completed the job (routine maintenance for my tankless gas water heater) in a prompt and efficient manner, and talked us through the entire process so that we can learn some of the skills ourselves! He was patient and professional. I will definitely go back to him for future plumbing needs. Highly recommend.

Kenneth was absolutely amazing. He was extremely communicative from the start and throughout the entire process. He was punctual, professional, insightful, and very nice. He worked on a couple home maintenance projects and helped us assess some other projects for further down the road. He showed up on time (he even said he could be early if need be!) and had all materials with him. I will absolutely hire him again and no one should hesitate to. Thanks, Kenneth!

Verified review

When I began my search for a professional who did carpentry there were two crucial things that I was looking for. The first was someone who had photos of their professional work and reviews from previous customers. After receiving three responses for my project Kezo Maintenance Management (Jim) stood out as he met those criteria’s. Jim initially installed two slab doors, one for a bedroom and the other for my bathroom. Jim did a great job and based on that I inquired if he was able to work on other projects that I needed throughout my apartment. Jim was able to give great feedback on all of the materials that I needed for the next project. Furthermore all of his suggestions was tailored to the needs of my apartment space and color schemes. Some of the things that Jim worked on was installing a vanity, medicine cabinet, towel rack, and shower rod in my bathroom. In addition to installing sliding doors for my hallway closet and another slab door for another closet. For my kitchen Jim installed my new faucet, and wall tiles. Jim was extremely professional and on time each day. I would most definitely hire Jim in the future for future home improvement projects.

This gentleman is an amiable professional who it was a pleasure to provide an extra set of hands to during the "cabinet" assembly. His professionalism was very apparent in his repair of the drawer slides on my kitchen "hooch". I have another "cabinet" job planned for the future and definitely plan to use his professional services.

Anthony was very responsive and helped me patch up some cracks in a tenants ceiling. He agreed to come back and finish up the sanding process and kept to his word. My only challenge was that Anthony doesn’t have a car which made it difficult to coordinate picking up materials (since I also don’t have a car). Outside of that I would work with Anthony on other fixes and maintenance requirements for my rental property!

Ricardo was very professional. He reached out to confirm the day before the scheduled appointment. He arrived earlier than the time agreed and immediately went to work. We had a very dusty attic along with some leftover junk from the previous owners. Ricardo moved our things out of the way first so that he could clean properly. He worked methodically and has a pleasing demeanor. He is clearly a hard worker who aims to leave his clients happy. I hope to avail of his other services in the near future. Thank you very much for a job well done. You made it look so easy!

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.
