About me

I have been a journeyman electrician for over 20 years, More than 10 years ago I began buying and renovating homes for profit. At one point I owned several rental properties at a time so I know the economics of revenue properties. I am semi retired now at 53 years old because of my success at flipping units but like to stay busy. All my licenses are up to date as well as insurance. I like to stay busy in the cooler months, but I scale back in the golf season. I am a one man operation so I don't have the need to keep any employees working to pay the bills, so I prefer not to take on large or laborious jobs. I think of myself as a problem solver more than a laborer. My strength is experience, doing it right is important, but at the same time understand the necessity for a 'temporary patch' in the right place and time. Nagging issues normally have roots that can be found and fixed rather than re-patched, my experience helps me to know if I'm the right guy to find them or if a professional should be callled. On larger projects I can offer design help and coaching as I have been the primary contractor for my own projects many times and know when work is being done properly or sloppily. Kitchen and bath design are personal favorites of mine. I have some before and after pictures . Appliance repair and installation is something I do on a limited basis, more on the technical side than the hauling side. I can adjust cabinets plumbing and power, but prefer not to move fridges up and down stairs by myself. My overhead is low and I enjoy my work so my rates are very fair. I like to work for seniors and they get both special rates and treatment. I like to help keep people in their homes as long as I can. I am a non smoker and my pants stay up with the proper use of a belt. My language is quite mild for a tradesman I'm told . I enjoy a sense of humor and think of myself as non judgmental. I like to think of myself as a friend who does not work for free, but just enough to keep all happy.
