“I'm so glad we hired Ms Fixit to refinish our front door. Chrysten facilitated a smooth quotation process and Reuben did an amazing job with the sanding/recoat. Reuben was also very knowledgeable/helpful throughout the process. We had bought the wrong stain/sealer and Reuben was kind enough to come back the next day at no additional charge! On top of that, the total price was very reasonable. I will definitely consider Ms Fixit for future home improvement projects.”

“Your crew came in and did a great job installing our drywall in such a small space, they carefully moved the dryer away and got the task done smoothly!”
– Willy, Herndon, VA
“Great customer service, very responsive, and excellent work. Very professional. Always on time and very courteous. I had my deck power washed and sealed/stained and it looks so good. I compared several services and I picked a good one in Ms. Fixit. Very price competitive too. Great value. Thank you Chrysten, Peter, and Reuben.”

“Fantastic, professional, detail-oriented work conducted today! Ruben and Peter came out to hang several double curtain rods, blackout curtains, and repair a botched job a from a previous contractor we hired. The first thing they did was set up a laser level and take detailed measurements of the room, noting that one corner had 3 extra inches of ceiling than another, so one set of measurements wasn't going to work for each window. Next, they took the time to read the instructions of the curtain rods, instead of just power through and make mistakes like our previous "know it all" contractor.” “They made an effort to ask our opinion during the process to make sure we were getting exactly what we asked for. When they were finished, they cleaned up, vacuumed, and made sure we gave our final blessing before they picked up their tools and left. Amazing job, very reasonable price, and pleasant, smart, detailed professionals. We will absolutely have them back for everything we can think of now!”

“Called Ms. Fixit to get idea on job price of fixing an outdoor planter box. Filled out questionnaire and attached a few pictures. Received bid back in 2 days. Compared price and was in middle of bids I received. Booked them. They sent date, time and picture of people coming. Showed up right on time. Did a great job, cleaned up entire area. Showed me finished job asked if I had any questions. Would definitely use MsFixit again.”

“The entire process was delightful. From getting the initial quote, the immediate responses to my questions via email, the professionalism of the workers, to the quality of the work performed. I will recommend Ms Fixit to my neighbors, friends and family.
The appointment was easy to book, as the staff was very responsive. They provided an initial quote, then had someone come to the house to look at the scale of the actual work. Once that was done I received a final quote via email and scheduled the appointment.
The staff arrived on time, wearing masks because of COVID. They were very knowledgeable and professional. I will definitely be using Ms. Fixit again.”
– Sam, Ashburn, VA
“We have used Ms Fixit now for two kitchen projects (new faucet and pantry cabinet). Both times they did a wonderful job. We were particularly impressed with how they handled a problem with the pantry install. The large cabinet came in a pristine box to our home but when the Ms. Fixit team opened the box they discovered a manufacturing defect. They immediately showed us the defect and gave us options: Install it and order a replacement side panel or order an entirely new cabinet. Either way, they said we would not be charged until the install was completed to our satisfaction. We elected to have the cabinet installed and have a replacement side panel ordered. True to their word, we were not charged for the cabinet. It took about three weeks for the new side panel to arrive and they promptly came back and finished the install to perfection. We are very happy with their services and would highly recommend them.”

“Thanks so much for getting the swingset done in time for my son’s birthday! It made quarantine fun and that’s a tough job!”
– Sterling, VA
“We just had a first rate experience with a power wash session for our patio and stairs. The two person crew was efficient and timely. They also did several stone fences and capping stones on the fences. They put all of the outdoor furniture back in place and left everything very neat. The pricing was reasonable given the type of work and the length of time they were at our home. I highly recommend this company. We have already retained them for another major job.”
– Homeowner in Oakton
“Ms Fixit did a great job. Reuben was here 3.5 hours hanging our holiday lights and it looks awesome! He was very polite and efficient.”

Leslie Strittmatter and Ms. Fixit's Terri Stagi named Washingtonians of the Year
by Anna Spiegel – Washingtonian Magazine
It started small. In 2006, friends Leslie Strittmatter and Terri Stagi invited their female colleagues in the male-dominated building industry to a clothing drive. By the end of the night, they had a sign-up sheet 50 names long for the next event. Women Giving Back, their Sterling-based nonprofit, was born.
Sometimes Even Multitaskers Need a Little Help
by Emily Cook – Posh Seven Magazine
Sometimes life can be a bit overwhelming. Especially in times of stress or uncertainty, which has pretty much been the theme of the year for 2020. Kids are being fully or partially homeschooled, adult children are returning to the nest while working remotely, and the expectation to meet everyone’s demands is weighing heavily on parents who have to assume the role of quasi-teacher, entertainer, chef, and often full-time employee to boot. While there have been some very positive aspects to this “new normal” in that we are spending more time together and enjoying family time, the added strain can mean that we are unable to tend to the things we need to because there are only so many hours in a day.
