Project: Remodel a Bathroom
Jim was always readily available via cell phone, text and email. If I ever had any concerns he was instantaneously responsive. He did a great job overall, and we would definitely use him again should we need additional services.

Project: Remodel or Renovate One or More Rooms
I wasn't able to be on the job, and Jim took over. I do normally prefer to be there but he did everything so well, my house sold above price and everything was wonderful.

Review by in Pebble Beach, CA
This was the worse experience I have had on the 5 similar projects I have had completed on one of my properties. Classic case of over promised and under delivered. The project ran 4 weeks longer than what was communicated upfront and contractor submitted a final bill for 28% over agreed to budget. No dialogue on specific cost overruns until final bill was submitted.
Response by The Carmel Guild: Once the original agreement was signed, Mr. Freeman was out of town and unavailable for project meetings for the duration of the project. Mrs. Freeman remained and was obviously the person in charge. Her desired changes to the original project were always discussed with her in advance and to her credit Mrs. Freeman was always decisive and approved of these changes, along with the additional cost required, without hesitation. She totally understood these changes to the original scope of work would result in additional time and additional costs. In short, Mrs. Freeman made the decisions and wrote the progress checks. However, in hindsight, I have learned to always have both parties available for meetings involving change orders and additional project costs. I am certain this simple policy would have made all the difference.

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.
