"Extremely pleased with the professionalism. He knows his appliances and their problems, and can fix them with complete satisfaction.  I would highly recommend him to anyone who has appliance problems on any makes and models."  Hugh R

"Sonny was truly amazing! One of the BEST technicians I have ever had work on our appliances" Mike R, The Villages

"Our Favorite! Fair- Well Skilled!- Courteous- The Best!"  Patricia P, The Villages

"Two days ago, I called a company that had a full page ad in the phone book -my fridge was leaking water.  I figured that if they could afford a full page ad, they must have lots of customers and know what they are doing, right?  Wrong.  I made an appointment for the next morning between 9 and 11 am.  By 11 am, no tech, no phone call.  11:30 tech calls.  I'm not happy.  He said he'd be here by noon.  Short story - he was here about 1/2 hour, even stepped outside to make a phone call (I assume to the office for guidance), but could not find the problem with the appliance.  He left with nothing being done or diagnosed.  He said someone would call me that afternoon to schedule another appointment (I assume with a different tech).  Guess what, no phone call.  Not even the next day!

"Sonny was very pleasant and helpful" Anonymous in The Villages

"Great Service!!" John H-The Villages

I called Jim.  Left a msg.  He promptly returned my call.  We made a same day appointment.  He diagnosed the problem as soon as he walked in the door - it wasn't the fridge, it was the dishwasher!  He hadn't even set his gear down.  That's what over 30 years of experience does - he just knew.

Jim was very thorough in not only explaining the problem but showing me what and where the problem was.  He took the time to educate me on how a dishwasher works.  He even knew the part numbers off the top of his head.  He had the parts with him, but he gave us an estimate of the cost of parts & repair vs a new one.  Gave us some advise as to what to look for in a new dishwasher and recommended where to look.  Then he gave us the option to think about it for a week or so.  If we want it repaired, he will come back (no charge for the extra service call) and do the repair.  Now, how honest and fair is that?

I was very, very impressed with his professionalism, promptness, knowledge, and fairness.  He will always be my first call when any problems arise.  Thank you, Jim.

"Jim was here within an hour or two of when I called him. That in itself is amazing. On top of that, within an hour he fixed our Kenmore dryer that has been taking longer and longer to dry since we moved here three years ago. Jim found and fixed the problem and while doing a thorough cleaning job of the guts in the machine, he found a diamond earring I lost about five years ago! He's our favorite Villager right now and will be our appliance guy forever!!
From a very happy customer." Ann & Geno M, The Villages

"Jim rearranged his schedule and was able to respond to my phone call the same day.  He is very knowlegeable and has experience on about every washing machine on the market.  We had called the service department for our make washer and they told us we needed a certain part, but when Jim came to install it, he knew exactly what was wrong and had us order the correct part.  He did not charge us to return to install the correct part." 
We highly recommend Jim for any appliance repair.  Dora & Harold S., The Villages

 "I was very pleased with the service provided.  Jim was 99% sure of my oven's problem when I called for an appointment.  He showed up on time, was professional, friendly, and very knowledgeable.  He was able to explain my oven's problem in layman's terms.  Although the part had to be ordered, it was there the next day and Jim fixed the oven in less than 15 minutes.  I would  recommend this company without reservation to meet your repair needs. " Elizabeth M, The Villages

"We called Jim early in the morning and he was here before noon to diagnose the problem, and give us an estimate. He told us that he had to pick up the part and return within 2 hours.

I had made an appointment with Jim, which I had to cancel due to a scheduling confict on my part. He didn't complain about the cancellation, but instead suggested he might be able to work us in that evening.Sure enough, he called and said he would be right over, if it was ok with us. He showed up a short time later, quickly diagnoised the problem, made the repair, checked other parts for wear, and gave instructions for prolonging the life of the machine. All in all, it was a professional and very pleasant service experience-a rare occurance today. WE WOULD RECOMMEND HIM HIGHLY!!
