In early April, 2017, I moved back to San Diego from the San Francisco Bay Area where I started and operated my business for nearly 8 years. I’m happy to build another great client base like the one I left behind – although I will be returning to the Bay Area occasionally to continue helping some of my favorite clients there.
I’m an honest, reliable, friendly and conscientious professional and I love to do those projects that come with home, rental and commercial property ownership, and which you may not have the time, patience or inclination to do.
I serve most of San Diego, La Jolla and surrounding cities and offer free estimates. I’m not inexpensive, but if you care about quality I doubt you’ll find a better value. I am dedicated to doing a great job and making it a pleasant experience. I hate working with a mess so I try not to make one in the first place, and generally leave the job space cleaner than when I arrived. I have many repeat clients, both residential and commercial, and happily provide referrals and references.
With a background in banking, customer service and marketing, I’m more than a little dedicated to keeping my clients happy. I’m also a little obsessive about ethics, so if I make a mistake or need to handle a couple of texts or emails while on a job, I don’t bill for that time – whether or not the client is aware of any unproductive time. And I never markup the cost of materials.
I also try my best to make my business as easy on the Earth as possible. Part of that is not replacing things that don’t need to be replaced. Although my customers have the final word, I reduce, reuse and recycle and use environmentally friendly products and materials whenever possible. I try to donate anything that can be used by others, rather than add to the local landfill.
Angie’s List named my business as a Super Service Award winner in 2012 and 2015 , and I have a 5-Star Rating on Yelp, Google, Facebook, Thumbtack and HomeAdvisor (I’m working on posting the badges with links, but as good as I am with my hands I clearly lack coding skills.)
