In one word, this guy is PHENOMENAL. Honestly, you can believe all the rave reviews Harry Stein has gotten here as one of Thumbtack’s top 1 or 2% performers. I’ve had my PC for 10 years and have taken it in for service many times, losing it for a week or more at a time. But this time I lucked out stumbling across Thumbtack and choosing the most knowledgeable and caring computer expert I’ve ever dealt with. And that’s no “bull.” Here are a dozen things about Mr. Stein and how he works that earned him my own rave review. 1. Competent. All those years he spent in the corporate world of software development and engineering support have given him detailed knowledge not only about computers, but also about companies out there that unscrupulously download additional hidden and unwanted files and programs known as “malware.” You’d be shocked at which ones these are. And pleased to learn which ones can be trusted. 2. Effective. He told me at the beginning that I’d notice a significant improvement in my computer’s functioning after his very first session. And I did – a world of difference in speed! 3. Honest. Mr. Stein will not play games or kid you in any way. His motivation for doing this work is pure. He truly wants to help people. 4. Generous. As proof of that, his $75 fee didn’t begin to compensate him for the many hours he spent working on my computer – sometimes far into the night while I slept! 5. Open. He openly shares his knowledge and teaches you what to do, what NOT to do, and why. 6. Thorough. He is so organized and methodical! The first thing he did was set up a chart with When and What columns, on which he kept detailed notes of what he did all the way through. Thirty-eight pages! Believe it – it’s true. I can review them and print them out if I choose. On top of that, he generated and kept up to date a To Do list of problems he encountered – and addressed – along the way. 7. Patient. Whenever I got on line to watch him work, he described what he was doing, and answered any questions I might have had. I took lots of notes. 8. Adaptive. The notes I took in between our sessions, when I came up with new questions, were addressed, and problems resolved 9. Teacher. In that respect, he is a mentor par excellence. If you want to watch him work, he’ll teach you to use tracking and diagnostic programs installed on your computer by the manufacturer that you didn’t even know it had. Plus, he adds his own that are even better. 10. Detective. The man looked at a complicated music editing program he had never seen that I have used for 20 years, and he figured out several long-standing problem I’ve been encountering that were too complicated and technical for me to figure out – even with the help of the program manual and the program’s developer. He loves doing this kind of analytical detective work! And he’s good at it. 11. Invaluable. In addition to all of this, perhaps the most valuable thing to me was the fact that I had complete use of my computer the whole time he worked on it. No inconvenience of knowing it was sitting idly on a shelf for up to a week while the techies at the shop worked on other people’s machines. 12. Resource. My brother in a different state happened to be having his own problems with a very slow, infected computer and Mr. Stein didn’t hesitate to take him on as another (satisfied and grateful) customer. All told, you cannot go wrong with the phenomenal Harry Stein. He is a real find. Thank you so much, Harry!
James is awesome! My dad found him while looking for for someone to do our first business taxes. He asked all the questions he would need, to get as many tax credits as possible. This guy did his research and knows his stuff! Since H&R block ripped me off and took so much of my tax return, several years before, I have been doing them myself. I didn't trust anyone else to do them for me. I was a little hesitant when my dad asked me to let him do my taxes because of the H & R Block experience, but I'm a Daddys girl so I said I would try it. I'm glad I did! A lot less stress on me and he knew more about it than I ever did. Thank you, James, for putting my trust back in tax services! I am a customer for life!
I had lost data on an external HD. Ryan met with me, diagnosed the problem on-site (Starbucks) and took the drive. Due to the complexity of the problem, he had to keep the drive for a week, but didn't charge me an enormous daily rate. His communication skills are superb: He texted often to inform of the progress, and sent screenshots showing updates. My data was recovered -- and it didn't cost me an arm and a leg. I highly recommend Ryan for data recovery!
I highly recommend Andrea for any Excel/data project or training. Andrea assisted me with an complicated contact data consolidation project with a number of data sources and formats. Andrea approached the project thoughtfully and patiently, researching possible avenues to complete the project. She reviewed each step with me prior to proceeding and kept me updated on her progress as well as time spent. Andrea's work quality, professionalism, responsiveness and punctuality are impeccable and her positive can-do attitude is wonderful. I would definitely engage Andrea on future projects.
Melissa joined our growing startup as our marcom and social media director. She was able to settle in quickly, and showed us her value within the first week of joining. She took our weakest effort, social media, and revitalized it seemingly overnight. Our engagement skyrocketed within two weeks and grew steadily each week Melissa was at the helm. As a startup, our employees are cross-functional, and, after getting our social media back on track, Melissa took the initiative to identify places in our organization that could be improved through her comprehensive skillset. She rose way above any expectation, and made measurable contributions across many different areas of the company. She was eager to revamp existing copy and coax out different voices for different markets, resurrect a dormant blog and turn it into a valuable source of inbound traffic, and many, many more things that weren't necessarily expected of her in such a short time. Melissa continually impressed me in each interaction we had. She was able to answer every question I asked with such detail, research, and experience that I was happy to hand over all marcom and social media within days of her joining. She holds herself to an extremely high standard, and her results are predictably excellent. With Melissa, I consider marcom and social media comprehensively covered. I know that essential functions are being managed by the one of the most talented and enthusiastic I could ever hope to find, and I count myself lucky to have found as valuable as an asset as Melissa. I could not recommend her enough to anyone who wants serious, high-quality work from a true professional.
