The Tigard Historical Association
It was a true honor to work alongside the volunteers at the Tigard Historical Association. After months of research, the full custom re-creation of integral stairs, newel posts and balustrade is complete. Beautiful craftsmanship by our team of professional carpenters and a tip of the cap to the original 1880 craftsmanship. It was a fun and professionally rewarding project!
When I opened my franchise operation in 2010, Ace Handyman Services was the "up-and-comer" trying to compete with the private equity firms injecting capital into competing service companies. Now, 9 years later, we are the leader in our industry and only getting stronger across the nation. It's rewarding to be part of an ownership group who is succeeding in business and in life.
Super Service Award in 2018
Earning the Super Service Award in 2018 certainly honors our company and recognizes the excellence of our overall work, but more importantly, an award of this nature recognizes the individuals who make up the company. Through their dedication to the "Service Path to Success" program, our employees create the customer service experience from initial phone call. As a 5x time Super Service Award winner, Ace Handyman Services is only getting better. We plan to keep up the hard work and continue making the winning of the award an annual tradition
Ace Handyman Services Portland Recognized as Top Franchise Location
Kory Arntson, owner of Ace Handyman Services Portland, was recognized at the National Convention for their continued dedication and success within the franchise system. Being in business only 8 years, he and his team have already helped thousands of home owners, donated time and talent to rebuilding the community, and achieved their goal of being the top revenue generating Owner in the entire Franchise system.
“This is a team effort, and I have hands down the best team,” said, Arntson, “through their hard work, excellent customer service, and dedication to our local community, we have truly set ourselves apart from the competition and are where we are today because of them.” Learn more about Kory’s business and his services by visiting www.acehandymanservices.com/portland.
Homeowners looking for home improvements and repairs continue to evolve since the recession in 2007. During the downturn, homeowners minimized investments in their homes, which created pent-up demand. Arntson saw this opportunity for a local company to ensure these needed services were completed as the homes in the Portland area needed improvements, remodels and overall upkeep post-recession. Customers’ expectations and demands on the industry have also changed, meaning increased demands on companies they can trust to complete work with integrity, quality results, and convenient scheduling.
The economic conditions led Arntson to take the leap into owning a franchise. “A franchise provided the opportunity to hit the ground running and be profitable early in the ownership cycle. I chose to go with Ace Handyman Services due to the synergy with my background in real estate, my love of working on projects and my passion to improve the community around me.”
“The location in Portland is simply a high performing TEAM,” stated Andy Bell, Owner of Ace Handyman Services. “Year over Year, Kory consistently provides his community with outstanding service, he runs a great office and it shows with his performance. I couldn’t be more proud of Kory and his TEAM.”
