Review by Bob P. in Valley Falls, NY
Project: Hire an Architect to Design a Project
We were referred to Mark Bess by a reputable builder. Unfortunately, the experience was horrible. We met and shared specs, our own drawings and input on the two story garage addition. We paid a substantial (50%) deposit on his quote. He failed to get back to us as promised within two to three weeks. After several phone calls and emails he emailed some drawings a month later than promised. The drawings and questions accompanying them did not reflect the input we had provided on several key points. We met again three weeks later to go over the drawings and reiterate those key points. At this time Mark asked for another check and promised to get back to us later in that same month after doing some research. After six weeks had gone by, I sent several emails, Mark finally replied and promised an update within one week. Seven weeks later, six months after our first meeting, I emailed him and expressed my extreme disappointment. We paid $1,200 and wasted six months for nothing.

Review by Ryan O. in Albany, NY
My Father gave him 300 Dollars for me because I was away at the time. He told my father he would have the drawing done in 4 or 5 days so I could start the job. I kept calling him and he would say he would have it in a few days. Its been 51/2 weeks and he will not call me back. Now its small claims court to get my 300 back.

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.
