I have an apartment (approx 850 sq ft) that needs updating-- nothing major
just cosmetic--new countertop, stove , floor scraping/repairing (tenant had
cats) and a good paint job. Is there a one stop shop that would handle this
type of job or am I better off farming it out to 2 or 3 people? How does
one find qualified people? I don't know of anyone who has used such
services and think I need more than a handyman from a classified. Thanks
If your choice is "handyman" and a "contractor", I'd suggest the more

Since you don't seem to have referrals, look around town for projects
and get names and numbers.
Ask for recent references and check them out. Ask the owners about
quality of work, adherence to schedule, communications.
Prepare a written list of work, walk through the job site with two or
three qualified contractors, ask about other items of work they might
Get bids on a consistent written list of work items.
Choose one on your own balance of cost, quality, and compatibility.
