Normally Frank takes on pretty big jobs but depending on what you are wanting to do, he may be interested. His work, cost management, and ethics are top rate.

If you are doing the remodel to make your home more personally enjoyable think it through and talk with Frank. You will be happy with the results. If you are doing the remodel to improve the sale value of your home give me a call and we can talk.

I did an analysis for a young couple buying a home in Palo Alto and put together pretty convincing evidence that adding one bathroom to the three bedroom, one bath, home they wanted to buy would increase the value by $50,000. I wouldn't say that applies to every home though.

Thanks, I will give them a call. My bathroom needs to be updated, but I am useless as a plumber. I need this job to look professional because I will be selling my home next year. I don't want to spend money on the remodel if I can't recoup it later.

Hi Sbay:

Most of the contractors with whom I work do not actually take on side jobs with individual homeowners. They're running larger crews, and tend to keep busy enough working with all of us Realtors.

If you want a contractor who will work with a homeowner or with smaller jobs, you should try Angies List for references. They have one of the largest service databases in the area, and can provide you with detailed information about a contractor including references from past clients.

Good luck!
