Jeff showed up on time and was completely professional and meticulous in his work. I am an high-end interior designer always looking for quality handyman and I finally found him!! He made sure the heavy oversized mirror and expensive 3-panel art work was perfectly balanced and properly installed. I highly recommend him and might just hire him at my company!

I just had to give a review for this young man. I reached out to him to install a wall mount for my plasma television and he was excellent. He was very punctual with his timing and immediately started working on completing the job. We ran into a small hiccup when he noticed that I had steel studs in my wall, but I was very surprised and pleased that he had all the supplies to complete the job that I didn't even know I needed. I will definitely be reaching out to him for all my handyman needs. Excellent Service and affordable!!

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.

Excellent handyman! Did a fantastic job assembling my ikea furniture and mounting my TV. Pierre was very careful throughout to make sure none of the furniture was chipped; he would gently lay down the funiture, put rugs underneath, and cleaned up the space afterwards.

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.

Jorge is a life saver! I bought a washer and after installing it we notice the water as leaking from the valve. Unfortunately we had to turn the water off for quite a few hours... Not so great when you have and almost 2 year old at home. I had no choice but hire a plumber. Thanks you Jorge, he was at my house in less the half hour and fixed it in less that 20 minutes. The soldering was quick and it was a great job. I highly recommend him. You get affordable great service in a great time.

This guy is the best. He saved me from a bad installation of my murphy bed (handy.com) The collapsed and could have seriously injured me. I was actually traumatized by that prior experience. Gino listened to my concerns and did the job right. He came back and built the additional console units. He spent the time to complete everything perfectly. He is a handyman you can trust for any project. He's very reasonable and trustworthy. I have other projects in mind and this is the only person I'll be using. You'll want him coming back for more projects too once you see the quality of his work.

I had a regular handy-person for years. He did excellent work and i trusted him implicitly. He retired a few years ago. My search for a replacement was unsuccessful. James installed some wall lights and provided me consultation on other projects. He suggested other professionals to use. His work is impeccable. He returned the work area to its’ pre-project state. He is very personable. I found my new handyman.

John is absolutely phenomenal. Not only does he have exquisite skills, but also has great judgment. He asked questions in terms of some of the colors / positions I picked for fixtures and really helped me think about some of the quick decisions I made. Appreciate him providing perspective and not just doing exactly what I asked when the outcome would not have been what I really intended. His paint work was not only expedient but also incredible. He transformed my living spaces and I keep looking for a flaw and can’t find one! I’ve recommended him to all of my friends for his paint work and general handyman skills and plan to continue to use him for all my needs going forward. Super trustworthy, fair pricing, great quality work. What more could you ask for?! Really lucky I was able to find him and hope all of you looking for someone get to experience his skill as well.

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.

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.
