Reliable and Trustworthy, 4/23/2012

Over about 3 weeks in January Fred transformed my new massage room from a drab environment to a beautiful space. Fred painted my office, assembled office furniture he picked up from Ikea, laid a... room-sized rug he picked up from my home, installed mini-blinds and hung pictures. He was always prompt, professional and helpful with suggestions. He presented me with a detailed statement each time and it was always accurate and fair.

Highly recommended, 11/30/2009

I highly recommend Fred's handyman services. He has been my go-to-guy for over a decade now. Fred is the sole worker and owner of his business, and has all the qualities that you would want out of... a handyman: He is honest, affordable, friendly, practical, and quite skilled.

All-around great

I manage a mid-size apartment building, and I call Fred every time a tenant moves and I need a unit re-painted. In addition to painting, he has also has helped me by replacing bathroom faucets, fixing tiling, and even replacing a broken window (on the same day of my call)! His rates are competitive and he seems very honest!

Excellent service and value

I had Fred over last month to paint some of the bedrooms in my house. He arrived on time, was very efficient, and did an excellent job-- all for a very reasonable price I highly recommend Fred, and will call him again as I need other rooms painted.

Sigh of relief!

I am so relieved to have found a reliable, punctual and affordable handyman. Before installing my new dishwasher, Fred thought ahead and brought a new hose since the appliance was from 1987. Now I don't have to worry about leaks from the old hose. The final cost was still well within his quoted price. Thank you, Fred! I'm keeping your card handy.

Highly Recommended!

Great! Called Fred after sending home a plumber who gave me a $500 estimate... Fred came over in under an hour, fixed the problem in under an hour, and charged less than $50. Couldn't be happier with the service!

Very Happy Customer

Fred repaired a fence and installed a gate for me. The work was excellent and performed in a timely manner. When the wood settled, a latch needed adjusting. He quickly responded to call requesting that it be adjusted. I would not hesitate to call him again or recommend him to friends for handyman services.

The Perfect Handyman!

Between my two jobs and my full-time academic schedule, I am super-busy and unable to give my house the attention that it needs. In the past I dutifully veered around the domestic disasters that came my way, by, for example wrapping masking tape around the leaking faucet, hanging pictures over the peeling paint on the walls, and simply leaving my back door unlocked once the deadbolt stopped working. But finally, about a year ago, I got disgusted, and I'm sure glad that I did. I called Fred and he was able to come over the next day and fix my multitude of problems within a few hours (and for a price that was in my student budget!). Now I call Fred whenever I need work done. In addition to Fred's efficiency and affordable rates, he is also friendly, honest, totally un-creepy. I definitely recommend him.

Wonderful!

I have been using Fred for three years with maintenance on a 12 unit apartment in Ocean Beach and he is the best. He does great work at reasonable rates. My only fear by writing this is that he might get too busy!
