Bill is very responsible and will take excellent care of your house and ensure all is safe and sound. You will have peace of mind that your home is in good hands. I highly recommend him.
I have known Bill for over 25 years. Bill is a very responsible, trustworthy, and is detail oriented. You couldn’t find a better person to take care of your house. He is good with pets also.
Bill's integrity is terrific. He is responsible, trustworthy. He's lived in my home for over a year in total spanning three stays.
He did an excellent job including handling an emergency repair. When the water heater had a leak, he responded quickly and found a competent contractor to replace the unit at a very reasonable cost.
