"Arthur, you were a delight to work with. And I highly recommend your work. I am settling in with my new bookshelves and loving them. I have more ideas on the horizon, but my guess is that once folks see your work, I'll be on a waiting list! LOL thanks again!"

"We bought in Montford in March, and since then we’ve had quite a number of projects both big and small that needed attention. I was lucky to hear from Arthur Teel who owns The Handyman Plan, LLC. Since he came along, he’s painted all the walls in our lower level; built a custom cabinet; built two pieces of furniture; added storage shelving; and helped me with a plumbing issue. He’s been a real savior so I wanted our community to get my strong endorsement for his work."
"Arthur has done a number of projects for [our law office] over the last year, including removing large old shelves, repairing walls, closing off doorways and trimming doors to accommodate new carpet. He also installed trellises on the front of our building, built a beautiful custom bench for our lobby and created custom planter boxes for our outdoor break area, and we have called on him several times for odd jobs. Arthur is dependable, and he does good work at a reasonable price. I always know that he'll show up when he's scheduled to be here. I would definitely recommend him."
"Arthur is a perfectionist (which I love) and a problem-solver (which I love just as much).
"In several projects, I counted on his skills, but also on his creativity and perspective. He's the best."
A recommendation on the Montford listserv:
"I just want to echo another recent recommendation on the list for a great handyman, repairman. His name is Arthur Teel, and we had him over a couple of times to fix odds and ends that had accumulated. What we noticed immediately was what a great attitude Arthur has—he was always responsive, curious, very persistent, enthusiastic, and VERY fair with prices. If something wasn't quite right, he would think about it and come back on his own time to make it right.
"So we decided to have Arthur do a bigger job, and build some banisters/railings off our front steps to match the railing around the deck of our 100 year old house. He has done just a beautiful job—we are thrilled with the railings, with the price—and with his work—he was a very hard worker, not at all invasive and just friendly! I don't think we have been as happy with a local vendor as we are with Arthur in quite awhile—so if you need work done—he seems to do everything but electrical, please look him up."

A review from Yelp:
"Arthur is a great resource to have here in our area. He's prompt, professional, does great work and is cost effective. I'll definitely use him again!"
"First and foremost Arthur called me back, second told me a time he would be at my house and he actually showed up and early to boot and ready to work. I didn't have to loan him tools or give him money first thing off the bat to go get something to work with. I consider him to be a craftsman that takes pride in his work and I have other projects for him. There are a lot of clowns on Craig's list but not many craftsmen."
"Arthur is responsible and responsive. He completed exterior window and siding replacement, as well as interior trim installation for doors, windows, base and ceiling. He combines a very good eye and aesthetic judgement with excellent building/ woodworking skills."
"Arthur helped me select just the right storm door for my house, and did a very professional job of installing it. His work is so good that I plan to hire him for future projects."

A review on Yelp:
"Having Arthur of The Handyman Plan, LLC come over to our house to build pantry shelves and help with several other small jobs that my husband and I were unable to do was a great experience.
"The shelves he built turned out to be just what I wanted. I liked that Arthur responded almost immediately about an appointment, showed up on time, did all the work we discussed within the time we agreed upon and is a nice guy on top of it. Oh, and he's reasonably priced."
A recommendation on LinkedIn:
"Arthur is reliable, talented, and manages his time well. Arthur is my regular handyman for several rental properties in Asheville. I have been very pleased with the work he has done. It is nice knowing I can call on someone I trust."
"Arthur has worked on various projects and repairs in and around my home since I bought my house a year ago. He is professional, fair priced and does excellent work! Arthur is also responsive, prompt and keeps me informed of his progress. It is great to know I can count on someone who is honest and competent. Arthur has made numerous repairs around the house, built a perfectly sized table for our kitchen from up-cycled wood, constructed a two-story cat condo that is accessed from our window, artistically hung my son's 20 foot hand-made canoe in our living room and installed an eight-foot bamboo fencing in my back yard. I will continue to refer to Arthur for my future home repairs and projects."
"The work began immediately! There was total transparency as the project progressed. Arthur showed up when he said he would and was always a pleasure to work with. Never did he bring anything to the project other than professionalism and quality craftsmanship.
"He finished in a timely manner. We were able to get the home on the market, had immediate showings, and it was under contract within two weeks of listing at nearly our asking price! THANK YOU Arthur!
"We've all heard the horror stories about the less than reliable handyman who never shows up and his work is suspect. Not with Arthur Teel. He doesn't know it yet but I have a few additional projects in the near future. Call Arthur, he is loyal, honest, dependable, trustworthy, and overall a pleasure to work with!"
"Arthur is the best. I've used him for all sorts of projects. Always on time, cheerful, and able to find cost saving solutions to problems and improve on my ideas. A total craftsman no matter how large or small the job. A pleasure to work with."
"Recently I had the pleasure of experiencing Arthur Teel's home repair services: a few repairs were needed, attributed to "wear," which every home owner is acquainted with. I live alone and have the dexterity of a left handed squid; consequently anything requiring more than tape is daunting. Arthur tackled the repairs efficiently and competently and, might I add, artistically.
"The new kitchen light he installed gives that area a wonderful glow. I am happy to have found a reliable, very personable home renovator and will certainly call on him in the future."
"Arthur is that rare professional handyman who is totally reliable; fairly priced; pro-active in communications; honest; punctual; skilled -- and a really nice guy. If he can't handle a job, he'll tell you. He listens to your input and works out great solutions. He did a particularly good job re-finishing our damaged wood floor and re-touching furniture. But he does everything well. Very highly recommend."
"Arthur is a wonderful craftsman! He takes pride in his work and he does what he says he’s going to do and shows up when he says he’s going to show up. His rates are competitive too. I couldn’t ask for much more than that!"
