Experienced Handyman needed for Condo Repairs

Hello Neighbors,

I am beginning the search for a new handyman that could assist with a variety of tasks around the house, from floors, to paint, to drywall, and all things in between. Specifically, I'm looking for an experienced, preferably referred, handyman/contractor who is diligent and knowledgeable about condos and have done great work. If the work is great, I could recommend the individual to the association as we are also in search for a new building maintenance person.

Price is obviously a concern for everyone, so someone who's reasonable in rates would be greatly appreciated!!

Thanks all, God Bless..

  • Ravens Yes.I can fix that.

    Looks like you found the perfect position for me. 2 questions. 1 where are you located. 2 how many units. Please call. 312-890-7558

Book Donations / Places to take used books?

Does anyone know of a good place in Chicago to donate some books or places that will take used books off your hands? I'm moving soon, so I've cleaned out my bookcases and have about 30 books that I don't need or want anymore. They're mostly novels, but a couple are more academic books. I'm not looking to sell them really, and I'd hate to just throw them in the trash.

The Manager at this location is very rude. Last Saturday, I called and ordered several pizzas for "delivery," to my dismay there were no drivers available. So I contacted a friend to see if they would "pick up" the pizzas which they graciously agreed. I called Giordano's and asked if they would take my credit card over the telephone to pay for the pizzas and the employee said no. So I asked to speak to the Manager. I explained the situation "no drivers available" I am not able to drive and I have someone to pick up the pizzas and asked if he could take my credit card number over the phone. Without hesitation or conciliation, he vehemently said "NO" in (to say the least) a "rude and unprofessional manner". Then I reminded him that his business offered delivery service and that none was available so could we compromise. Then the Manager became loud and aggressive in an unrecognizable tone that he would not and hung the phone up. Although the Hyde Park community boast on the taste of Giordano's Pizza (I agree) I will no longer do business with an establishment that wishes to accept my money but offers no respect to me as a customer. DON'T ALLOW GIORDAN'S @ BLACKSTONE TO GET AWAY WITH THIS TACTIC. PIZZA IS AVAILABLE AT SEVERAL LOCATIONS IN THE Hyde Park Area such as Leona's, Medici's, and Pizza Capri which appreciates its customers and the pizza is just as good.

  • Darlene,
    Yes, you are correct but if the individual's signature does not match the one on card, the merchant may refuse the transaction at their discretion.😏

  • Absolutely, that's a fraud prevention requirement.
