Damon Y.

My first time using Handy, and I was very glad I did. Guillermo was on time and extremely helpful in fixing the electrical issue in my apartment. Now all my dimmers work. And for far less money than other quotes I was receiving. I highly recommend Handy to anyone who needs reliable, affordable help fixing something in their apartment.

Carmel F.

No particular problems. He was good. I had a long list of items, and the two big items that were highest priority for me weren't done.
