"Jeff installed two ceiling fans and two door locks for me. He gave me a timeframe to expect him and texted me on his way. He's friendly, professional and stand by his work. Three weeks after the installation one of the fans the blade stopped working so I text Jeff and he came back to check it out-fan was defective so he took it down and I exchanged it and he came back and replaced it without a charge. What a guy! Who does that? I will definitely use him again and refer him to anyone I know. His rates are affordable and we're half of what I was quoted by another business. I felt comfortable having him in my home and would recommend him to any woman looking for a handyman." Kathy M. Soquel
