Review by in Los Altos, CA
Project: Remove Trees
work seemed very acceptable. I was not there to see because they were two hours late by the time i left the house. when i returned and checked the work, everything seemed very good. I did miss the opportunity to discuss the job with the tree cutters

Project: Remove Trees
Jose and his partner did a fine job in removing the stump and planted a 24" boxed tree in it's place. The price was fair.The removed stump was a 1958 camphor planted by the city. Poor choice it moved the curb twice in the past 30 years and the sidewalk three times.

Project: Trim or Remove Shrubs
Get more than one estimate for the job. Insist on a written estimate with details. I feel I was overcharged for what was done. I acceot responsibility for lack of due diligence. But I would not use them again.

Project: Trim Trees
They were timely, arriving a few minutes before scheduled. They also cleaned up after themselves, leaving no branches littering the yard.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.

NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed as described above may change or expire over time; while HomeAdvisor attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate.
