If you need a handy man in Berkeley, Oakland, San Francisco, or anywhere else in the Bay Area, I recommend my neighbor Oscar Ramirez. He’s done all sorts of work for me, from painting, to installing a doggie door, to hanging white boards at our new offices.
He is super-friendly, competent, and doesn’t charge an arm and a leg. He thinks things through and comes up with the right solution, and the work is high-quality and lasting. What more do you want?
