painters , handman, and movers

Asked by nancysanch, Fort Myers, FL Sun Jun 10, 2012

I am looking in the area of Brookshire painters with good reviews. I just bought and need painting done at a decent price. Also, someone who is handy. I don't want to be ripped off or pay lots of $$. I live in the Chicago area and can't be on top of the people. Where do you go? Angie's list isn't in Ft. Myers.

Your Realtor will have a list of previously used vendors. Great vendors are hard to come by......they are kept a secret for personal customers only. Your Realtor will have some as well.

I have not been to sure of Angies list as recomendations seem to be purchased not earned. I dont know if I agree with a business having to pay to be on it.

Try Angies List. The subscription price is well worth the info.

The person that helped you buy the house should be your best source.

I can also suggest you hire a home watch service you can asked if they will be willing to give their opinion on the progress of what is being done. Understand, this is a subjective opinion and ultimately the one that counts is your own. As you can suspect, nothing comes without costs too.

I have two articles on my blog that offer some idea.

Remote home security watch:…

Home Watch, some people that will home watch your place for a fee. You can discuss your need:…

Hope this helps some,

Angies list does cover Ft Myers - I am a subscriber. Also, your buyers agent should be able to recommend someone to you.
