The Hanz-On Pro Handyman Team
Lawrence started Hanz-On Pro in early 2006, first working independently, and now with a team of skilled professionals to keep up with demand. His design career started in graphic design, progressed to three dimensional design for trade show exhibits, and ended in the film industry as an art director and production designer in Vancouver, Canada. In that capacity, his job was to conceptualize, draw, coordinate, and supervise construction crews and painters to create the perfect illusion for film and television. This experience, along with a lifetime of fix-it and remodeling skills, are what he brings to his work as the owner of Hanz-On Pro.
Karl came to us from Nebraska, bringing his amazing artistry, creativity, and years of carpentry and finishing experience to Hanz-On Pro in 2016. In January 2018, he also took charge of meeting with customers to discuss remodeling projects, prepare estimates, and supervise large projects. Concurrently he runs his own business, specializing in custom airbrush art (notice his van when he comes to visit!), signage, murals, and much more. You won’t find a better person to consult with to solve a sticky problem or help you through designing and implementing a remodel.
After Lawrence, KC was the first Hanz-On Pro field employee. He’s been with us since 2014 and handles most of our fence building and repairs, small drywall repairs, furniture assemblies, picture and TV hanging, smoke alarm battery replacements, and many other tasks. You might see him driving the Hanz-On Pro pick-up truck around town.
Margaret is Lawrence’s sister and joined him in 2013 to build a website, establish bookkeeping standards, organize the office, and perform customer service, scheduling, and marketing. She arrived with previous office administration experience. Her background includes technical writing and training in Silicon Valley during the ’90s, and, more recently, academic editing. With Larry’s arrival (see below), she has focused more on marketing and accounting.
Larry joined Hanz-On Pro in November 2017 to work with Margaret in the office and carry out customer service and scheduling. He most recently worked as an HVAC service technician, but has spent a lifetime doing his own handyman and remodeling work at home and at the Mexican restaurant he and his wife owned in Germany for 15 years. Larry brings a great deal of knowledge to the job and is able to ask pertinent questions, give advice, help you think through solutions that don’t involve a handyman, make referrals to other service professionals that might be a better match for your needs, follow-up with you via phone or email, and make sure your handyman needs are matched to our best employee or subcontractor so the work gets done efficiently, well, and in a timely manner.
