Find a Handyman
I have found that the most difficult resource to find is a reliable handyman or contractor who can help with projects, large and small around the house. Whether it is hanging new curtain rods (evenly!) or building a new terrace, you want to find the right person to ensure your projects are successful. The best local resources are typically found through friends, neighbors and co-workers. There are also some good online resources to get customer feedback. Good luck with your next project!
Housekeepers & Maid Service
A well maintained home always brings a little peace and sanity to your life. Make sure you are able to find a cleaning service you can trust. A good way to find a maid or housekeeper is to ask friends and neighbors for referrals. If you prefer working with an agency, here are a few that may be able to help.
