If you need something assembled, installed, hung, caulked or in any way rehabbed quickly, efficiently and for a fair price, then give David Goodman a call. He will come to your home, assess the job, and take care of those niggling tasks in a timely manner.
David has been working in various construction trades since 1988. In 2007 he hung his own shingle as a handyman and word-of-mouth referrals have kept him busy ever since. He can handle any kind of small job around the house, from weatherproofing to repairing drywall and assembling furniture. And if he can’t do the job, he has a list of trusted experts he can bring in to help.
David’s prices are always reasonable, but more importantly, David is reasonable. He returns calls promptly, shows up on time and is organized, tidy and reliable. “You want to do right by the people who trust you,” David says. Many of his clients give him spare keys to their homes, trusting him to let himself in, do the job and lock up when he leaves. But you might want to stick around for David because this funny, intelligent handyman is someone you’ll actually enjoy having in your home.

A neighbor recommended Goodman to the Rescue to me. From the moment he walked in my door I felt like he was a friend, a part of my family. He is so trustworthy that I hand him my list and leave the house to do what I have to do. Since I am often not home when he leaves, he calls, texts or emails me to update me on what has been finished and the status of any of the remaining tasks on my list.
He will advise me if he thinks he can get me a better deal or save me some money on a project. He is highly efficient and his work is beyond impeccable. I love this guy so much I even tried to get him married off! He is confident, yet humble and his work ethic is outstanding. He built and installed an ELFA desk for me in our bedroom and then gave me a phone consult to help me figure out how to work the shelves. He mounted a flat-screen TV for me and assembled some IKEA furniture. I purchased the movable arm that went with the TV, but David told me I could save a lot of money by using an item from Costco. He actually went to Costco to pick it up for me and saved me a trip. I’m a new mom and I really appreciated that.
The baby proofing he did in my home was phenomenal! I had a baby proofing company come out and walk through my home, then give me a bid. David did the job for half the price! He did latches, gates, drawers, safety locks, toilet locks; you name it! Depending on your budget and project size, David will work with you. He gets the highest stars in my book, and he does it all with a huge smile!
I am an interior designer and David has done work for me both professionally and personally. David is just a lovely person to have around, pleasant and extremely patient. We are now consulting on some future projects, with estimates, and brainstorming. He makes a huge effort to be available and to accommodate my needs. He has worked with me to install some unconventional, tricky, vintage fixtures. I have not compared his prices to others because he works very quickly and neatly. His rates are worth what he does. I have recommended him to a lot of people. He is efficient with a great sense of humor and a nice energy. David Goodman makes the job fun!
Goodman to The Rescue made our garage into a very nice guest space, at a great price and outstanding workmanship. David is a great communicator, extremely professional and I trust him. He is a collaborative listener and offers wonderful contributions to the job. During the job, he emailed us photos and sent us samples. I cannot emphasize enough his great taste! He is a young, reliable, smart, hip guy with great insight into the whole process. We recommend David to every single person we can think of. He is not a fly-by-night kind of a guy!
David Goodman is smart, creative and really very bright—an incredible guy! So much more than a handyman. Occasionally he gets quite busy and it is hard to get an appointment, but he always calls back promptly to let me know when he’ll be available, and I’m always glad that he is so busy. Some of the jobs he has done for me include: repairing leaky sprinklers and installing a banister. He replaced exterior security lights, transformers in can lights and hung pictures and photos. Sometimes he gives me alternate options that do not even include him, when the money does not work out. I’ve had handymen around in the past, but David does a better job for less money, and I really like to have him around!
The first time I called David Goodman he came over and took care of so many small jobs that I just could not get to, like doorknobs hanging off doors and window shades that wouldn’t move. Everything he does is fast, on time and done expertly. We now have a “David List” on our refrigerator. He put together my daughter’s trampoline. One year I got the notion to make a Christmas tree out of an old garden umbrella. I asked David to help me. He did not bat an eye or laugh at me. He even came to my daughter’s school to help us with our community garden. He is efficient with his time, easy to talk to and good at explaining things. I have recommended him with confidence to dozens of my friends. His prices are totally reasonable and he gives me all the receipts. There are never any surprises with David. He has a keen sense of boundaries so he recognizes that he is in my space. He brings good energy to my house. He started out as my handyman and is now my friend.
I have David do everything and I sometimes feel like I might be bugging him. He has handled baby proofing and light building. Weekly he maintains the hot tub chemicals. He has repaired landscape lights and redone the plaster throughout the house. He built an entire bedroom closet for me and put a gate between the yards. He is great at keeping in touch with me by text, phone or email. Because he is so good, sometimes he gets swamped. When that happens, he will let me know ASAP. So far I have not had any job that couldn’t wait a week. He can pretty much do anything I have asked him to do. If he can’t do something he will tell me up front to call in an expert. He gets the jobs completed in a timely manner and is cost efficient and reliable. I never have to worry about a thing. David Goodman is really good at any job he takes on.
Tracy Mc Cubbin with d’Clutterfly, a personal organizer that did extensive work for us, recommended David to me. We are expecting twins next week and Tracy designed everything we needed to prepare for the surprise of two babies instead of one. David then built it for us. He assembled an exterior storage shed for us to store things in to make more room. It was in the heat of summer and it took him all day. He also installed a pre-fab closet system, and built custom shelving in the kitchen and bedroom. David is very smart with great ideas. His prices are very reasonable because he is so efficient and quick. He is in great demand and busy, but because of our time frame with the pregnancy, he rearranged his schedule to accommodate our needs. He is thoughtful, clean, and just a lovely person. I can email, text or call David and he will always respond promptly. I have used another handyman company that was very good, but they sent different people all the time, at twice the cost. I prefer the one-on-one with David Goodman. He follows up to be sure I am still satisfied with the job. David Goodman is a real gentleman.
Over a period of three years, David has made improvements to almost every room in our house, ranging from installing outdoor speakers to fixing screens on screen doors to patching and sealing tiles on our front steps. The quality of his work is always excellent. He does it right and always cleans up so all looks beautiful when he's done. His prices are very reasonable for the service and quality. His customer service is also excellent. He's punctual, provides accurate estimates for large jobs, easily available via text, phone and email and does everything he can to make sure I'm delighted with the work he does—which I always am. David is a lovely person with both smarts and a sense of humor. The combination of his good ideas and his superior follow through make me a happy repeat customer.
