Congratulations to all the Top Pros! It's been quite a ride this year and for many, online has been the only way to get leads during this lock down. Grateful for Thumbtack to have the resources and resourcefulness to stick it out. Thank you for the support and for thriving during adversity. 

We custom design and make fine jewelry and hope that a recovery in the consumer market reaches everyone soon. 

Continued success to all the Top Pros.

Best Wishes,

John Vardis

Congrats to all of our fellow Top Pros!! Proud to be among other dedicated professional providing a valuable service to our communities.

Over the years Jim and I have cleaned and organized for friends and family as they were facing their life’s transitions. We were told many times you should start a business as you are so good at helping people. When Covid hit our income stream hard earlier this year and we realized that income may never come back so we decided to give it real consideration.

We sat down over the state mandated 6 weeks of stay at home and talked through all the different ways we could earn money to cover our bills.  We came up with the most important qualities of healthy and happy life requirements. First was having flexibility in our schedule so we could have time to enjoy life. Second was getting to work together as we really enjoy our precious time. Third was doing something that kept us moving to stay healthy in body and mind. The end result was The Domestic Duo Cleaning and Organizing company was launched on June 3rd, 2020. 

After 6 weeks from launching The Domestic Duo are doing well and covering our monthly bills. But most importantly we are discovering and testing our own humanity everyday and have tremendous gratitude to the clients and their families that have welcomed us and trusted us to come into their homes and allow us to deploy our overactive cleaning genes.  And the story continues…..

Good evening pros!  Never in a million years did I think I'd be here, doing THIS when I first started Thumbtack.

I am a "one man shop" architecture firm in North Carolina.  I was googling myself one evening late last year and I was not getting great results.  But I noticed something, several colleagues of mine in an adjacent market kept coming up on this thing called Thumbtack.  I had tried several other "referral" programs before with very little success, including HOUZZ.  But, this one was different... it actually ACKNOWLEDGE the professional advantage I had as a licensed Architect over several other lesser professional "draftsman" and "architectural designers" who do not have my degrees, experience, or LICENSE.  Thumbtack actually provided a place in our profile to list our licenses, checked them, and then offered a free background check.  I was blown away.  I finally had a place where I could advertise my professional advantage and possible clients would be made aware of that advantage.

Well, I spent several hours filling out my profile, uploading photos, filling out the FAQ, and even added  page to my website to feature my Thumbtack profile.

It wasn't always easy... I had to figure out how Thumbtack worked, and honestly, Thumbtack had to figure out me too.  There were a lot of misses among a few hits... but slowly, the ratios started trending in my favor.  I have steadily increased my weekly budgets and have gotten much better at identifying "tire kickers".  

I have worked hard to get references and improve my response time.

Even in these tough times, I am busy, and nearly ALL of my work comes from Thumbtack or repeat clients/referrals from past Thumbtack clients.

Can someone please answer why I did not get top pro? I met all the qualifications before the end of June. I even took some jobs that I normally wouldn't just so I'd have it in time. Thanks in advance.

We are excited to be apart of the Top Pros!  Since day one I wanted to get to this place and at first I wasn't sure about it and how it would generate enough income to justify using it.  Boy was I wrong, even with Covid-19 and loosing 98% of our regular maintenance customers we had before Thumbtack, because put everything on hold.  Thumbtack has put us back in business a few months ago and I would say between that and our website launching, it has been insane trying to keep up with all the leads.   Then I realized towards the end of July that we had Top Pro on our profile.  I guess I expected bells and whistles to go off when it happened LOL.   We are proud that our values and work ethic already matches the service levels that Thumbtack requires to become a Top Pro.  It was an easy victory for us but never the less it is all about hard work and dedication and owning your craft.  There is no half stepping here, because you get what you give.  So we are so proud to make to the Top Pro platform, now we have to continue to stay here by staying sharp and always going above and beyond the customers expectations.  In a service business it isn't about fancy packaging, a superior product that sells it self, its about hard work, high standards, and creating a world class customer experience, that will set you apart from the rest.

-hank you Thumbtack and thanks to all our customers that helped us achieve the Top Pro status.  Congrats to all the other Top Pros as well, wish you all well and prosperous days to come.

Hi Team. Name is Adeleye and I’m a general contractor in Columbus Ohio. I have been running my remodeling business for over two years and I didn’t know how much more I could get better and how much more opportunities I could get until I joined thumbtack. Thumbtack hasn’t just given me opportunities but helped me to learn a lot when it comes to marketing and organizing myself and my business. I’m excited to be in this community and see success stories. I’m glad and grateful to join the winning team! Hardwork and good rating finally paying off!! Yipee!!!!
