We were first introduced to Larry by our real estate agent when we purchased a second home in North Scottsdale about a year ago. While the house had good "bones", it needed considerable updating. We put a contract on the house in February, and wanted to close and renovate the house in about 3 weeks. I had never met Larry, just talked with him on the phone to get things started...and boy did he get things done. I traveled back to Arizona on a Monday to close on the house, and by the end of the day Tuesday had new granite countertops in the kitchen, new appliances and new light fixtures. The transformation was amazing! Since I was working long distance to pick things out, Larry did a lot of the legwork...tracking down the granite and appliances and sending me pictures online. He basically spent that first week at my house doing whatever I needed done. He did plumbing, electrical, arranged the granite installation, installed appliances and handled any crisis that came up during my stay. And his prices were always fair and reasonable. Since the initial renovation we have had him back to do a number of projects. The tile floors looked grungy and dated, but we really didn't want to go through the hassle of replacing them, so after talking with Larry, he found a product to recolor and seal the grout, and the floors look like new! After such a positive experience with Larry, and since we live in another state and visit infrequently, we asked Larry to manage the house for us on a regular basis. He checks on the house for us at least monthly, and takes care of any projects that need done. He has done everything from washing windows, getting the house cleaned for us, spraying for bugs and taking care of the yard. He recently updated the look of our bathrooms by framing out our builder grade bathroom mirrors...a project I found on a DIY site...but instead turned it into a Do It Larry project...and they look amazing. I haven't yet found anything he can't do....and perhaps even more importantly, he's honest (we trust him with our house!), he's fair, and he always shows up when he says he's going to. Despite how busy he is, he will always respond to an emergency and communicates with me regularly about the house. We couldn't be more pleased and would highly recommend Larry to anyone needing work on their home. -Pam K.

Oct. 24, 2011 We recently completed a ‘mini’ kitchen re-model. We hired Larry Babbitt, from Handyman Larry, to do the work and/or oversee the work. Our remodel included removal of two ovens, cook top and sink, new travertine backsplash, installation of wine cooler, commercial range, and sink, and reconfiguration of cabinets with added crown moulding. In place of one built in the oven we put a wine cooler. Larry installed the wine cooler and electrical outlet fitting it perfectly into the newly created opening. In place of the other oven and separate cook top we put in a commercial range. Again, Larry made this fit perfectly into the space. To do so he had to have the granite countertop cut out as well as the hardwood floor to fit the new stove. He elevated a middle section of our kitchen cabinets 5 inches to accommodate the new range hood, giving it a new custom look. He removed the previous cabinet trim and put new crown molding and wood rope trim, matching the stain very well and precisely mitering the angles. In addition, he replaced the old kitchen sink, faucet and RO faucet which required some plumbing revisions. This project involved many different skills including carpentry, plumbing and electrical rewire. Larry was able to perform all of these services skillfully. His meticulous attention to detail was evident in the fine trim carpentry demonstrated with placement of the cabinet crown moulding. We also had a new backsplash put in beneath the upper cabinets and behind the new stove. Larry used his tile installer, Francisco, to put in the travertine tile backsplash and to cut and polish the granite. Larry and Francisco were wonderful with the design and layout of the tiles, trim pieces, and accent pieces. We are very pleased with the end result of our ‘mini’ kitchen update.
