FYI, Alfred no longer does handyman work.

And Handyman Bob George doesn't return phone calls. FYI.

That's too bad.  I was going to call Handyman Bob George.

I did speak to Alfred and he said handyman work was never really his thing.  He's a great person though, but to respect his privacy I think we should remove Alfred's name from the list.

Thanks for letting me know, I will remove them from the list.

+10000 for this thread.

For moving you should add Mission Movers, a relative of mine used them and reported great results -- well paced movers, very careful... even used moving blankets and plastic wrapped the furniture.

I think it was a bit over $500 for a 6-hour job with 3 movers (and included the truck).
Due to a bad experience with another member, I am suspending my recommendation of Mission Movers.

Seems like Excalibur is a good rec as a number of members have used them to their satisfaction (and they have a moving contract?).

Had a good experience recently with Fred Alcaraz for A/C repair.  My tenant notified me that the A/C is not blowing cold air Friday at 5PM.  Called several places, no one picked up except for Fred.  He came by at 7:30PM on a Friday night and spent an hour and a half to replace a blown fuse to the compressor, recharge the freon, and gave the compressor a good inspection. 

He's been doing A/C and plumbing for 30 years in Irvine, he knew exactly where my condo was by just telling him the street name.  He looks like a one man shop, doesn't have a fancy truck, just drives around all his parts and equipment in a little Toyota Matrix.  Price was reasonable, much cheaper than the last guy I called through Service Magic, who only spent 15 minutes to replace a capacitor on the compressor.

The way I see it. Forget being a landlord, just buy REIT stocks.

Also, if you hire a management company, it takes your profit away.

Has anyone used materials from these guys in the first post:

Cougar Stone http://www.cougarstone.com/  (714) 993-7360
2250 Rose Dr. Placentia, CA 92870

I really like the stones they show on their website, was wondering how prices and quality are?

I didn't get the material from Cougar Stone but went there to check out their selections.  They have a great showroom for you to get some inspiration for your landscape project and it seems that their price are reasonable.   This is one of the place my landscaper recommended to browse different stone tiles.  Cougar Stone is also used by AMS Landscape Design.
http://www.houzz.com/photos/31718/AMS-Landscape-Design-Studios-mediterranean-landscape-los-angeles

M S International  http://www.msistone.com is another place my landscaper recommended.  If you are doing landscaping and want to select different stone tiles, both of these two stores are a good place to start since it is impossible for your landscaper to bring all the different stone selections to you.  I'm actually using some tumbled travertine tiles from M S International for my backyard.

Since many here are in the process of doing landscaping, I add these two store to the list so people can go down there, not necessary getting the material from them but check out their selections in their huge showroom.

I think you can only be "made" if someone with more than 100 posts sponsors you.....Not really...
But notice that Resort Style Backyards who pays to advertise on this forum is not even on this list.

By the way, I think you should add Window Decorators even if Max is a sex offender.  Just add a * note by their company name.

Actually the Window Decorators was on the list and I just removed them after learning about the owner's criminal history

If I put a warning next to the Window Decorators, I don't think anyone will bother to call them anyway.  Therefor, I just remove them from the list. 

Anyway, people reading this or the shutter thread will have their info if they want to call them for quote.
