Brandon was great work with. He was on time did what he said and was honest and upfront. He could have charged me more but he didn’t because some of the work was already done and I didn’t realize it. I will use him again as he has extensive background in general construction and handyman services.

All IN 1 Property Maintenance did a great job and were able to give me a direct quote on Thumbtack. Many other companies wanted to come out and talk about your project. This is not so easy to do when you work 30 miles from home.

Vincent was very knowledgeable about what needed to be done and worked with my schedule to install the water heater before we left for vacation. He even gave me a small hose to use for maintenance. He was prompt and always returned my messages. I will use him again for future plumbing issues.

I requested Drywall estimate for a ceiling removal in the kitchen (old drop ceiling with the plastic sheets for Florescent lighting ) . Kelsha responded quickly and personnaly showed up to introduce himself. I quickly realized Kelsha was more than just drywall contractor. His work and helper were there when they said and performed perfect in removal of many parts of the home I was remodeling. We did total bathroom remodel as well as walls removed throughout the home. They cleaned up everyday they were on the job and never had to question anything. Kelsha was so talented in Finished Trim, Drywall, and general construction all the stress of the multiple projects in the home Kelsha performed always in a professional way. Always was the early man on the job and kept in touch thruout with other trades to cordinate the work load . Kelsha would constantly call to inform me of progress and what I needed to purchase to keep the flow moving forward. I forgot to mention his ability in framing walls whenever needed which I found myself needing during the remodel. We added and removed multiple walls and Kelsha finish work made them all look as if they never happened. I strongly recommend Kelsha Speedlimit Construction for all your drywall , framing and finish Carpentry jobs. Small or large you will be happy with Kelsha on the job.

I contacted Mustard General Contracting, Home Improvements, Handyman Service to install and stain four interior doors. Mark was highly professional and efficient in his work. He did a superb job of matching the stain of the other doors. I particularly liked the fact that he responded quickly to my call. I will be using him for additional projects in preparation for selling our house.

Josh and Renting Ohio took over management of my 9 unit apartment complex in April. I was previously self-managing with my brother. Josh puts all his energy into management and it shows. Renting Ohio provides many features that should cost a lot of money, like 24 hour phone answering service and internet payment option for the tenants, but he provides them with minimal overhead and he passes the savings on to the owner. Josh takes a personal interest in managing the property properly. He does little things like landscape and pick up trash at the building when necessary. Renting Ohio has its own maintenance people, but allows the owner to stay involved as desired. The most important thing... occupancy: within two months, I went from 6/9 occupied to 8/9 occupied and we have turned away some prospective tenants in favor of waiting for higher quality tenants. I expect to be fully-occupied soon!

I had almost given up on property management companies and was close to selling my investments. When Real Estate Pros was suggested to me on this site, I decided to give it one more try. The main issues were marketing, finding tenants, repairs, and especially fees. I was contacted quickly by a knowledgeable professional. Marketing was done with crisp photos and quality video. I saw my properties pop up on many real estate sites. I was pleased with the methods used to find me tenants that were responsible and could be trusted. I no longer wanted to be directly involved in house repairs. This was also taken care of by Real Estate Pros. I now pay a very fair flat rate fee each month instead of a percent that was always increasing. I normally don’t write reviews, but in this case was happy to do so. I am relieved that my properties are being managed so well. I would recommend Real Estate Pros to any homeowner in need of amazing property management services.

Dustin has been managing multiple investment properties for me over 6 years. He's been great! He handles all of my tenants from the screening process to placing new tenants and the maintenance as well. If I didn't have him I'd probably be selling my units due to the headache.

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.
