Awesome - highly recommend!

Martin is great! He is honest, trustworthy and reliable - what else could you ask for?! He is extremely thorough with his work but at the same time does not take advantage and run up the bill. I even had to leave and didn't think twice about it. I came home to a clean and flawless job - thanks, Martin! I have used him multiple times now - doesn't that say it all right there? I would highly recommend him!!

PHENOMINAL and Highly Recommended!

I am so happy to have found Affordable Handyman - Martin was a pleasure to work with.

Martin is very attentive, quick to respond and very easy to work with. I originally found him through these reviews and figured I could not go wrong w/ someone who has gotten stellar reviews. I was right!!! :)

I had a disposal installed in a condo unit that had never had a disposal in it - the brand new install was very complex, but Martin did a wonderful, flawless job. He is very thorough and cleaned up the area when he was through. Also took the time to go through operation and how to resolve issues that could arise with any disposal.

I highly, highly, highly recommend Martin. I plan on using his services again and will be recommending his work to other owners in this building.

Thanks, Martin!!!

Good Follow Up

I had an unsatisfactory experience with Affordable Handyman and the follow up customer service was very good. Given that, I would try them again.

Happy to have found him!

I needed an electrician and didnt know where to begin..
Martin is so easy to work with. He returns e-mails, phone calls and is prompt. Since he agreed to see me after his
day at work..9 p.m. i thought he would just look at my
project and we would set a later appointment..He saw
what needed to be done and said ""lets do this.""In an hour
what i thought was complicated was completed! Great service at a great price!

Excellent work and great value

Affordable handyman has done three projects for me in the last year. The first time he completed a laundry list of maintenance type items around my home. He was efficient and did great work. The next work that Martin did was another list of odds and ends. I was out of town when this work was done and he managed the work perfectly and my tenants even commented on how wonderful he was to work with. The project that he just finished was a large bathroom rebuild that he did in one of my apartments. I was 1000 miles away at the time and he coordinated the entire project with my tenant. The work is beautiful and he was very careful to save me money at every turn. I recommend him very highly!!

Best Handyman Service

I called Affordable Handyman Service at 5 pm and explained I did not have an emergency, just a simple repair. Obviously he was on a job when I called, but by 8:30 the SAME NIGHT my problem was fixed. You can't go wrong with Affordable Handyman Service. Not only motivated but friendly and considerate.

Excellent work and geat service!

I live in Los Angeles but needed to get my sister's condo fixed up in Chicago before my realtor could list it. We were on a very tight time line. My realtor had several contractors bidding on the job but they were all ridiculously high. I decided to take matters into my own hands so I went o-line and found Martin.

He answered his own phone and when he learned of my circumstances he drove right over to the unit and called me from inside to go over what needed to be done. He took pictures which he later e-mailed to me and sent the estimate that very night.

He completed the work yesterday and the place looks fabulous! I am very appreciative and will be referring him every chance I get.

I would never use anyone else

This guy is amazing. I called with an emergency, and he interrupted his day to come over and fix it - got the job done very quickly, and still made his next appointment on time. I seriously would never consider another handyman now that I have found him. Reasonable rates too, although if you've ever dealt with any ""normal"" handymen, you know cheapness isn't really as important as showing up when you say you will and having the knowledge to get the job done right the first time. This company will NOT disappoint on those measures!

Awesome

My neighbor hired Martin to fix a few small issues in her condo. I let him into her unit, and then I asked him if he could help me fix a light in my unit. It was a small problem but I never could have fixed it myself. He was really sweet to help me out, very professional and efficient. Thanks Martin!

Affordable Handyman A+++

I called for service at the end of a business work day, Martin answered the call and fit us into his schedule for the next morning without hesitation. He was prompt, polite and very effecient. I will definitely call on him again.

Yesterday was a very nice experience!

Thanks Martin

Best Handyman in Chicago!

I met Martin by accident. You see I was looking for a handyman to fix the work of a handyman who preformed a crappy job and ignored my calls. I found about Martians company from a friend who spoke very highly of his services. I called Martin and he came out the next day to provide an estimate. His estimate was the lowest of the 3 companies I brought in and his reputation was by far the best.

Today is 1/15 and it may just be the coldest day in years. My scope of work required both interior/exterior repair work (meaning he had to be outside). The typical Chicago contractor would have called to reschedule, not Martian. He showed up on time and did an amazing job. He was extremely professional, quick, clean and a pleasure to work with.

If only I knew about him months ago. Well, you all can be assured next time I need ANY handwork who I am calling!

Great service and prompt response

Martin was great. He called me to set up an appointment, was exactly on time, and was able to replace my bathroom faucet in no time. He even was able to take the old faucet and send it in to the manufacturer for a rebate for us since it was under warranty. He is courteous and listens to your needs. I highly recommend going with Martin.

Best handyman

Martin has done work on our townhouse multiple times over the last several years and he has been nothing short of great. We have had many bad experiences with contractors and handymen, but have only positive things to say about him and his helpers. His bids are spot on, the prices are very reasonable, he shows up when he says he will and the work is very high quality. We have referred him to several friends who all speak very highly of him as well.

Excellent service

I was searching for a handyman to install a new garbage disposal and contacted several different services I found on the web. Affordable Handyman responded right away with a quote, dates and times that week and the hourly rate was extremely competitive with the few other companies that did respond. After 3 weeks, there are some some services I still never heard from.

After exchanging e-mails with Martin to confirm the appointment, he showed up and was very courteous, explaining everything he was doing throughout the entire process. As it turned out, an additional pipe was needed to complete the work and he drove to a local hardware store, picked it up and was back in no time to finish up. Everything was working properly and cleaned up in an hour.

I would highly recommend calling the Affordable Handyman for any project you have around the house.

A FABULOUS HANDYMAN!

I could not have been more pleased with the services provided by Martin - of Affordable Handyman. He was prompt, courteous, efficient and as professional as he could be. He accomplished all of the work I had contracted for in the amount of time he had originally specified, at the original estimated cost.
He performed all of the work exceedingly well and left my condo cleaner than it probably had been before he started the work!
If I could have rated his services at 6 stars (indicating he exceeded my already high expectations, i would have!)
Thanks Martin for a job exceedingly well done.......

Extremely pleased

I contacted Affordable Handyman (""AH"") to hang / anchor several heavy mirrors and paintings in my home. AH was able to accommodate my busy schedule and make an appointment quickly and conveniently. Once the handyman arrived (on-time, if not a little early), he was professional, meticulous, patient, and experienced in the task at hand. All debris was cleaned up and the project turned out beautifully. As an added bonus, the project came in under-budget. Highly recommended.

Faucet/Disposal Installation

Martin showed up on time (maybe even a few minutes early), completed the job in an hour and used materials I already had --all other estimates said 2 to 4 hours and wanted to bring their own materials. Martin was very friendly and cleaned up the worksite before he left. I will definitely call him again when I have more work.

Great handyman service

Martin was great. He came to my house on short notice while my husband was out of town fixed a big list of things in less than 2 hours. He was fast, friendly and cleaned up after. I would highly recommend his services.
