I am so happy that we found Mike at Lone Star Lawn Care & Services through Thumbtack. Mike and his crew took out the old deck from our backyard and put in a cement patio all in 3 days time! The guys worked in our Austin almost 100° June weather from 9-5 to get the job done, and I can't thank them enough. Mike is a great guy to work with. He came out and talked with me about my ideas (and dreams for the yard) and was able to steer me in the right direction once he knew a rough budget. He prepared a quote for us and then patently waited while we decided. We chose Mike for our home project, and we will contact him in the future when we have more yard projects to do! Thanks Mike and Lone Star Care & Services for our new outdoor living space.

I had what I thought was a simple washer installation. It turned out to be a little bit more complex due to leaking from the hot water stem. Carl offered to replace it, but respected my decision to let the apartment maintenance take care of that piece. He worked quickly, but with care to ensure everything he could do was done right. If I needed additional work that couldn't be done by the apartment, I would use him again in a heartbeat.

General lawn maintenance. Very pleasant experience with office personnel, prompt service as scheduled, preventive treatments ( soil amendments, pre-emergent weed control, etc.) all accomplished to my complete satisfaction. Business matters include automatic billing to a credit card they have on file. I'm so accustomed to paying bills on web bill pay and some out of date vendors either don't have EFT or charge a fee for using a credit card payment.

I was very impressed with McJones Cleaning Services.The representative arrived a few minutes early and immediately recognized what needed to be accomplished. This was a difficult assignment and Faye jones performed exceptionally well. Attention to detail was meticulous and the apartment began to resume it's original luster. Again I highly recommend Mc Jones Immediate Cleaning Service for any and all cleaning needs.

Although he showed up late due to traffic, he walked me through what I could do myself and gave me great suggestions to fix the issue. I have made use of all his suggestions and it didn't cost me much. He is fair in pricing. I would use his plumbing services again.

Dry wall repair, patching, texturing, painting. We recently moved into a new home and had custom closet built. The company took out the parts installed by the builder, but does not offer dry wall repair service. I hired Angel out of 4 companies that did estimate for the drywall repair. Angel offered a reasonable price that was comparable to others. He was accountable, reliable, sincere, and did an excellent job. He showed and updated me on his progress while he was repairing the dry walls. I would definitely hire him again if we need a handyman in the future.

As a real estate agent, having a “go-to” yard maintenance team is crucial to keeping homes on the market in pristine shape. I can happily say that Cutter’s Landcaping is exactly that!! 10/10

They arrived early in the morning and worked for 10 hours in the dead heat. Their work was extraordinary. Our yard needed a major facelift and they weeded and cleaned out all the beds and immediately bagged the debris keeping the property tidy during the entire process. The bushes were all overgrown and ugly and they trimmed them skillfully with such precision; really giving our home the curb appeal we were hoping to achieve. They did everything I asked them to do and we were so thrilled and pleased with the work that we hired them to care for our regular weekly maintenance! Do not hesitate to hire this service.

Christopher is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! He was so considerate of our time, (always arriving early or right on time) and our needs. He helped us load, unload and assemble many different pieces of furniture. He is so respectful...not just of your space, but if you and your family as well. I will not only use him for further home improvement needs, but I believe that we actually gained a family friend as well. Hands down, he is the best and you should not hesitate to contact him for ANY needs or wants that you may have. Thanks again Mr. Christopher! Signed- Lifetime Client

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.
