Handyman Services by Home Specialists, Inc.

Home Specialists, Inc. is a 100% family owned and operated small business corporation dedicated to handyman work. Home Specialists, Inc. is wholly owned and operated by Steve Konetchy. We are not a franchise, nor are we affiliated with any other company. Our mission is to provide excellent quality handyman services including small kitchen and bathroom remodeling services to home owners and businesses for a fair price.

When I was just a boy, I used to follow my father and grandfather around and help them while they did their own handyman work – repairs, additions, and anything else that needed to be done on their homes, boats, summer cottages and rental property. Dad was a great handyman, as was Grampy. Many of my handyman skills, and all of my work ethics were instilled in me by them.

Over the past 30 years I’ve been doing handyman work for family and friends and maintaining my own home and my 32′ sailboat. I was raised in Holbrook, MA and have lived in New England all my life. That is, with the exception of 2 years living in California, where I learned why life isn’t as good there as it is living in New England.

I started this business with the support and encouragement of my wife, Cheri on October 1, 2001 (just after the 9/11 terrorist attacks). As the business grew, we kept a very busy schedule doing handyman work, and in order to meet the needs of our loyal customers, we incorporated in 2004 under the name Home Specialists, Inc. We’ve been a member of the BBB (Better Business Bureau) since 2004 have continued to earn their highest rating “A+” ever since. In 2013 we joined Angie’s List and have earned their highest rating “A” based on reports and surveys of our customers.

Prior to starting this business, I spent many years in the high-tech industry doing engineering and marketing work with industry leaders such as Wang Laboratories and Data General. The technical nature of my work in the high-tech field has provided me with electrical and mechanical skills that complement my handyman skills. I am a computer engineer by trade, and have done everything from flying around the world fixing computers to marketing and selling computer hardware and software. My business travels took me throughout the USA, Canada, Mexico, South America, Europe and the Far East. Most of these high-tech companies were merged or acquired during the turmoil of the 1990’s and I finally got fed-up with it all and decided to pursue my dream of self-employment.

I enjoy my work, and find it very rewarding to be able to help people with their home projects. I hope you’ll consider calling us next time you have a handyman project that “needs doing”.
