To say that this was an extremely stressful time in my life would be an understatement. I live in Raleigh, NC and this place is in Chicago. They were professional and quick to respond to my request. This was the one thing that I knew was going to be taken care of.

Description of Work
Done: 3/16/2007 - They served legal papers to a tenant I was evicting. They went to the door and served my tenant with the necessary paperwork. Then, they went to have it notarized. They mailed the original to my attorney and mailed me a copy.

It was okay, but not great. They did okay on shopping, except for one item, which had to be returned (and they charged me for the time it took them to return it). It irked me, because when they arrived, Teresa, was annoyed with me, because she bought the wrong item. I sent them both a link with a picture of what I had in mind, so it wasn't my fault. It wasn't a big deal, but I didn't appreciate he...

Description of Work
I asked them, Ann and Teresa, to pick up some things for me at the Container Store and Home Depot. They got my information and bought the items and brought them over to my house. Then I was lectured to in a rather unfriendly manner: I was not informed enough about their policies, I had not contacted them in the most effective way, etc. It was bizarre and I basically asked them to leave after that. I had planned to hire them to help me organize my house, but Teresa was so terse with me, that I really did not want them in my home.

TERESA AND ANN SAVED MY SANITY WHEN IT CAME TIME TO GET MY CONDO READY TO SHOW FOR SALE. MY WORK TRAVEL SCHEDULE LEFT NO TIME FOR ME TO OVERSEE A HANDYMAN OR OTHER CONTRACTOR - LET ALONE FIND A GOOD ONE - SO I HANDED OVER MY KEYS THE NIGHT BEFORE I LEFT FOR THREE WEEKS AND SAID ''I HOPE I CAN TRUST YOU - JUST MAKE IT NICE AND DECLUTTERED WHEN I GET BACK''.
