"Tom has helped me a great deal with several projects. He has "hammered away" at my to- do list at the same time as asking for more! He has been communicative, efficient and thrifty. He has creatively solved lighting issues, stair replacement, painting challenges and appliance transport with installation.
I am very pleased with the results of his work and I am impressed with his integrity. He is patient, reasonably priced and clearly enjoys what he does to help me and others achieve our project goals".
Painting is not exactly my favorite thing to do, especially since I lack the skill, patience, and coordination necessary to achieve the best outcome.
I recently purchased an almost 100 year old home that had been unoccupied for awhile and was in desperate need of new paint throughout. The various repairs needed for some walls, the stained wood moldings & window frames, stairwell wall height, & overall size were beyond the scope of my rather limited skills & timeframes.
Most of my friends and co-workers successfully tackle their home repairs and were unable to refer me to anyone, so through Craigslist I found Tom and received a very reasonable estimate for the job. Not having previously hired anyone through Craigslist, I was probably overly paranoid and rather skeptical, but Tom was rather patient and offered to meet me in advance to assure me everything would be fine.
After meeting, he began work immediately and finished the job in only a few days. The outcome far exceeded any expectation I may have had - I can’t get over the difference between the before & after. He did a fantastic job for a great price and will be my go-to for all my future painting needs.
Tom was a total hero getting some painting off my to do list. We were getting the house ready to sell and were exhausted from packing and cleaning.
Tom came on short notice to make sure our painting was done on time before the showings started. He's full service, too, careful prep, detailed painting, total clean up. You'll love his work.

" Tom did a great job painting my condo! The job was unique as I was trying to complete the work needed while still living in another city.
Tom was reliable, efficient and very trustworthy. I was on a tight schedule and coordinating work around other items needing to be finished before the move. He was allowed access to my unit in my absence and I had no regrets".
Job well done Tom!
St. Paul, MN
I was very pleased with the work done by Tom in my kitchen and dining area. I needed the painting done within a short time after the estimate and he promptly got it done for me!
The taping work was awesome and he can work fast and still do a great job. He is very careful to cover floors and areas so that they are protected.
I would definitely recommend him for all painting jobs!
"We've used Tom for paint projects at our old house and our new house. Each time, he has demonstrated a commitment to quality, customer service and affordable pricing.
He is flexible with our busy schedules, and he always follows up to make sure we are satisfied with the end result. We will definitely use him again.

"I am very impressed and satisfied! Tom not only did a very clean paint job, but assisted us with ideas of color choices that would work for the interior of our house.
It's amazing what beautiful paint can do to make a house feel like a home.
I was thankful we could afford to do these updates because he was within our budget.
Thanks again Tom! Look forward to the next time.
"After living with the same bland walls for too long my fiance finally got fed up and wanted to paint. She found Tom and had him come over for an estimate and to discuss color options that would work with our existing window coverings, area rug and furniture.
I am very happy she found Tom because I am actually impressed with the way things turned out and a extremely fair cost. Can’t wait to get him going on the next room to see what he can do".
Scott (see his fiance's testimonial above)
Tom did a great job painting my laundry room. He provided high-quality at a reasonable price. I would highly recommend Tom to anyone looking for an experienced painter.
He was thorough, helpful, prompt, clean, and speedy (finishing it all in one day). I will definitely hire him again.
I had the privilege of painting two bedrooms in Jessica’s home in Stillwater. The rooms were previous painted a dark red and blue color, which made the rooms seem small.
Jessica chose a light yellow color in one room and a shale color in the other. The color’s where a perfect choice in that they made the rooms appear larger and the colors provided a warm feel to the room.

“Thanks for your help! You where professional, fast, and very friendly”!
"When I was looking for someone to do some painting in my new house, I turned to the Internet where I found Tom!
Skeptical at first, being a single mom, and not sure how I felt about letting a man that I had never met before into my house, I still went with Tom.
Tom was great, dependable, hardworking, courteous and trustworthy.
He did a great job painting and at a reasonable price.
I'd recommend Tom to anyone, single mom or not for any future work".

We found Tom on Craigslist.. We called him and he was available right away to come out and paint a room. He did a wonderful job, and we would highly recommend Tom and would use him again anytime.
Thank you so much for your outstanding work in my store, Tom. The transformation in the course of 6 hours was amazing.
I thought it would take several days and you were able to do it in one evening!
Thank you for the wall repair and painting, the walls look brand new and I am now very proud to set up my store and get it ready for customers.
You were a total lifesaver, you saved me time and cash, and still gave me a space that I am thrilled with and happy to show to everyone that walks in.
The next time I need some help, your phone number is the first, and only, one I will call.
Thank you so much!!
"I couldn't be happier with Tom's work. I immediately felt comfortable with his level of skill and professionalism.
He even offered to go above and beyond my initial project request. I was also blown away with his pace - he finished in a fraction of the time I would have been able to complete the painting.
The cost was extremely affordable and the amount of stress avoided was invaluable".
"Tom was a big help when I needed to get a lot of painting and wall damage fixed and completed in a short amount of time.
The job he did allowed me to focus on other things and to know that he had the painting under control was a huge help!
He was prompt and courteous, and took time to do the job right.
I’d recommend him to anyone who needs a quality painter who also works with you and within your budget"!
"I called Tom for a friend that owns an investment property in Edina. Their insurance agent had identified work that needed to be completed and they needed the work done quickly and professionally.
Tom completed the work within days of my call and provided them with professional results that fit within their budget.
After the work was completed, he emailed me the pictures of the completed work".
Thanks very much!
"I have an older home in Minneapolis that has lots of detailed woodwork that required a skilled painter to preserve the craftsmanship.
Tom was definitely the right person for the job.
He is a professional painter that took his time to ensure that the desired results were achieved.
I would recommend Tom to any person that is looking for a quality result at a price that will fit into most budgets".
"Mr. Harer is a quality painter. I was a little concerned to hire someone from Craigslist but it turned out to be a very good experience.
Attention to detail, professional demeanor and advice were invaluable to me. On time, on budget, 3 colors in 2 bedrooms, living room, stairs and hallway. 14' vaults , no drips...not 1 and I looked carefully.
Thank you for the excellent job.
I will refer you to friends and family".

"Tom Harer has done a wonderful job in painting our kids bedrooms in our new home. He was very helpful in assisting us in selecting the right colors & providing his recommendations.
And we are both very pleased with the work you did. You were on time, professional and completed the work under the time you estimated. I will be sure to tell neighbors about your good work. And we will definitely give you a call for any future work".

"Tom did an awesome job! We needed our dining living room area painted along with the kitchen ceiling. We called on short notice as we were getting ready to sell our house and ran out of time. He was so helpful and understanding about our time crunch. The painting was amazing and professional. Would definitely use Tom again!"
St. Anthony, MN
"Does amazing work! Had them out to paint 4 rooms and patch some holes in the walls. Amazing rates and they were fast and went above and beyond to make sure that everything was protected with coverings and also called before coming to let me know that he was on his way with an ETA! Would VERY strongly recommend them and use them again!"
"Tom does some amazing work! He's done a couple different paint projects for me and both turned out fantastic. Amazing work and good prices also! I would highly recommend him for any paint projects.
I will continue to recommend you to my friends and clients."

"Tom was very professional. Quick repaint of our farmhouse. Great Value! Thanks!"
"Tom did a great job of clearly communicating and spec'ed the job and he delivered excellent results."
Tom did an amazing job painting our nursery. I was nervous about the stripes but they turned out to be perfect! My friends and family were so surprised to find out they were painted and not wallpaper. We're definitely having Tom paint our living room and dining room next.
St. Louis Park, MN
Tom did a terrific job getting our rental property ready to re-rent. It had been several years between painting and it needed some TLC. It was a big job including window and door casings a trim. The transformation was dramatic. Tom did wonderful work, including that detailed trim work. He was extremely professional and efficient. He came in gave us a good estimate and got the job done without any issues--exactly what we needed. Thanks Tom!
Apple Valley, MN
I've found Tom on Internet and I knew he would be the one that would transform my place! I opened my house for him, left to work, and when I was back home what a sunrise... my place looked amazing! Tom is a great and reliable guy to work with!! Thank you so much! My husband and I could not happier!
Tom was great, friendly & professional. He even picked up more paint,as I didn't buy enough and was unable to as I was working. Will definitely call again when I need more painting.
Tom does fantastic work. He was able to paint for me short notice and his work is immaculate! I would highly recommend him!
Tom did a great job painting our nursery. We squeezed us in under short notice, was punctual and professional and got the job done well in a timely manner!
Excellent work on short notice! Tom even moved things around to schedule us back in later in the week when it turned out I'd bought the wrong paint for the first time he painted. Conveniently communicated by text, was prompt, clean, and did excellent work. Price was very reasonable, particularly given the short notice for the request. Would definitely hire again and have already recommended to friends!
