My experience with Mark has been a complete nightmare! I so regret using him a third time after 2 previous experiences of unexplained loss of a great deal of cash! The only reason is that he does a good job painting.
The latest and most heartbreaking incident was November 28 , 2018 he started a job to paint 2 bedrooms. On November 29th I looked in my jewelry box that was on the dresser in my bedroom and 2 beloved, beautiful heirloom jade pendants that had been in my family for 4 generations (appraised at $3000) were missing. I filed a police report and asked Mark and his assistant Ishmael if he had seen them. They denied. I always keep them in the jewelry box and no where else. There is only me and my husband in the house. I am devastated. I have anxiety/depression from this.
Rewind to the first incident on Nov2015, he and a different assistant Bif painted the back door in the lower level of the house.At the same time 2 other handymen unrelated to Mark were doing the bathroom. A few months later I realized that $5000 cash was missing from a locked metal desk drawer (the drawer was somehow broken into)
in the same area as the door that Mark was painting. At the time I thought maybe it was the other workers doing the bathroom who stole it.
The second occurrence(I can’t believe I used him again)was August 2017, Mark and Bif painted the living room. Mark stood in my living room and said to me with a smile “These people, they have so much stuff, if you took something they wouldn’t even notice, it happens all the time “, strange thing to say. Couple days later I noticed a tiny drop of paint on my wallet which I left on the kitchen counter. A few days later I realized a $100 bill was missing from the wallet
I feel violated and my peace of mind is destroyed. I cry every day for the beautiful carved antique pendants, one of which my late mom wore for 24 years and never took off. Never never let him into your home!!!
