Mr. Fix-It™ has been "fixin" things for nearly 45 years. I built decks, patios and such for friends and friends of friends and was paid in various ways… usually with tools. Once I was paid with a video camera for building a deck. The work was always done on the weekends or after I came home from my "real" job. Nearly 30 years ago, after receiving a reciprocating saw for building a deck on a friend's home… my wife grabbed me by the collar and said…"listen up 'Mr. Fixit'…your next free job is going to be building a patio cover for me and your prices are going to be adjusted." Thus… Mr. Fix-It™ was born.
The work was still being conducted after normal business hours and on the weekends. All work was referred by word of mouth and was performed by myself. Within six months… it got to the point of choosing between my "regular" job and "Mr. Fix-It." At least for the moment… the regular job won out.
Fast forward to the present day: After spending more that 25 years in the corporate world… I grew weary of the politics that are rampant in that life and the effects it was having on my own. If you treat people like people, take pride in yourself and the work/service you perform… life is less complex and much more rewarding. 65% of my residential business comes from referrals of existing customers who recommend Mr. Fix-It™ to their friends or associates. My customers receive instant gratification and I no longer have to deal with folks I have no desire to deal with...
We're a little bigger now, with multiple crews working in all areas of construction. I personally perform much of the work and at some point I'm on every job to ensure quality… with the possible exception of the handyman & "honey do" service requests we receive.
I own the company and my name is associated with all work done, so it will be done right the first time…every time. My goal is long term. I want customers for life, not one project. I want you to call me for any and all of your needs regarding your home or business. Repair, improve… or something brand new.
So.. For those of you in the corporate world who don't have time, don't know how, or simply have a job or task that you don't want to do... Give us a call. We'll take care of what you need to do while you take care of what you want to do.
