A good contractor for smaller around-the-house jobs?

wall with hole in itM emails:

We have a few "honey-do" items around our house that need more than a amateur touch, but not a full blown "Bob Villa" contractor with a camera crew. Items such as grout work/repair, installing a grounded outlet, painting trim and a bilco door, some repairing of concrete work... I need someone I can trust, who is reasonable, but not a fly by night operative. Suggestions?

We get the impression it's hard to find someone to do these sorts of in-between level jobs -- maybe a little more complicated than a Saturday DYI project, but not big enough for a big contracting company.

So, got a suggestion for M? Please share! And a sentence or two about why're suggestion a person or company can be very helpful.

I recommend Dan Brooks for these type of handyman jobs (although he also has the ability to do the larger jobs). He's down-to-earth, reasonably priced, and is very good at fixing/remodeling/repairing/building pretty much anything. You can view some samples of his work on his Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/dbrooksremodeling/

I've had Jim at JRS Handyman Service out of Rensselaer do several jobs around my home--painting, replacing a window sill, repairing my garage door. I found him to be prompt, professional, and very reasonable. http://jrs-handyman.com
