About this pro
fixed problems w/ computer; easy to work with; reliable and promptOct 29, 2015Verified
Andrew was a pleasure to work with. He explained things to me in plain English instead of too much techie talk. Took time to check and re-check the work he did before signing off with me and giving me of virus free computer. Stuck to his estimate even with a bit of extra time. I will confidently refer Andrew to others and would definitely go back to him if needed. Thanks again, Andrew!Aug 14, 2015Verified
