Review by in Westminster, MA
Captain Max is a cherished friend and man of the highest character. He is a consummate craftsman who not only efficiently installed ceiling fan lights in our home but also fashioned the combination yellow and white gold wedding rings my wife and I are pleased to wear and about which we have gotten many compliments. I have also several times met him for lunch or dinner in Manhattan and often on those occasions got to see the exquisite work he was doing in several of the top pubs and restaurants in high end areas of Manhattan. I recall, as well, his being featured in a Village Voice article awhile back which brought out his incredible knowledge of the great variety of woods and their appropriate uses based on their differing inherent qualities and characteristics. He also loves boats and sailing and as a result has extended his craftsmanship skills into the marine realm. I have on occasion worked with him on boats including on Reid Stowe’s incredible record setting 70-foot schooner, the Anne (1,152 straight days without stop on the open sea). I do have to admit that I did find working with Captain Max to be a mixed experience as I discovered when he is on the job what a serious, hard-nosed, tough task master and SOB he can be.

Review by in Brooklyn, NY
Max is the consummate professional! He and his team did a wonderful job in designing, building, and installing a series of built-in bookcases. Not only is the craftsmanship of the finished project of the highest standard, Max himself is responsive, friendly, and a pleasure to work with. Highly recommended.

Review by in New York, NY
Max is very professional and polite - and really friendly. His work is impeccable. He holds himself to very high standards and this shows in his work. I hired Max to do work in both my home and my office. He is very dependable and reliable. In my home he built me a big set of shallow steps so that I could walk out my balcony door more easily. (It was a huge step up.) It is a great design and looks like an art installation on it's own (that is what I wanted!) It is also free standing and not attached to the walls so the building had no problem. And at my request Max stained the piece with a particular type of stain for guitars that i found, so I could get the exact Cherry red color that I wanted. Gorgeous! Max also did some work in my kitchen and came up with some beautiful and innovative solutions to my having trouble fitting my new stove properly. In the process I was in the area of the Bronx where Max gets aluminum sized, so I offered to pick up the piece - and everyone that worked there from the boss to the guys on the floor to the cashier LOVED Max. They wouldn't let me go because they were telling me stories about a stand-up guy that they would trust with anything. Max's work goes beyond repairs and necessary pieces. He is an artist. He cam ego my office next and did a ton of handyman work, like tightening things and patching walls, reinforcing drawers and assembling furniture. But the best are my BIG RED STEPS!! I am looking forward to hiring Max to do many more projects - he has great suggestions. Whenever I describe a vision, he makes it happen in reality. It's like I had my dream come to life! I'm so glad I found him!

Max helped to trim out my kitchen which my previous contractors did a terrible job on. He also fixed a door that would not close. Great work and very responsive to all communication. Definitely will work with him again!

Review by in New York, NY
After having an antique chair that I wasn't able to sit in for 10 years, Max reglued and repolished it so that as he said "the joints are now stronger than the wood". My refurbished chair is now as good as new ...if that can be said for a 100+ year old chair. Max did a great job!

Max is an absolute great handyman. Our projects, which we thought were super-complex, he accomplished with ease and professionalism. On top of that, he is a really affable guy. I would recommend him in a heartbeat.

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. Therefore, we recommend that before working with a service professional you verify that information presented is still current and/or acceptable to you.
