“A while back, I had some work done to my sump pump. It's been about eight months since I had the work done on my sump pump, but I also have had maintenance on the heating and air condition system. I would give Real Plumbers an A, and I definitely would use them again.”
“He helped out with a small thing. I couldn't figure out how to remove the thermostat cover to change the battery. That was kind of above and beyond the call of duty, so that was nice. He showed up during the time frame allotted. It was just a basic check of the system, which is included in a contract we have with them. They're supposed to come out once each season to check our heating in the winter and our A/C in the summer, so he was just kind of testing the system to see if there were any problems with it. We were referred by someone. I guess I'd say they're an A.”
“Everything's been fine with Real Plumbers.”
“I've been a preferred customer of theirs for about 15 years now, so I'm very biased. I get customized service, so, obviously, I think they're great. I became a preferred customer because I like their work, their reliability, and the sense of trust. I think most recently, they did service on a heat pump. They come when they say they're going to come, at least for me, and they bill me. I don't have to pay ahead of time, and I don't have to pay on the spot. I can call them up personally if they're late or if they don't come, which is not that often. They know me. They've earned an A.”
“They were nice people. They were very efficient, and they did the job well and fast. I would give Real Plumbers an A grade.”
“The people communicated well, showed up on time, and did a good job. The last time they came out was for a repair. My boyfriend knows the owner, and I would give them an A rating.”
“It was professionally done, both the work and arranging it. They came out to do a repair. They do a lot of work in our apartment building, so they were familiar with our situation.”
“I've worked with Real Plumbers before. They came out for a cleaning, and I'd give them an A.”
“They performed an inspection on my home for my HOA. They were quick—they came out and assessed, I passed the inspection, and they were on their way. I heard of the company through the HOA. They get an A.”
“The guy was very helpful—he called me after the work was done. Basically, I had a false alarm issue, so I had to get some stuff evaluated. He was able to come in and test it, and he actually called me on the phone and talked me through some other possibilities of what it might be. They were very informative and helpful, even though they didn't really address my problem directly. It ended up being a false alarm, but they did a lot of work to verify that it wasn't anything major. I think I'd give them an A. He came for a follow-up, and I thought that was nice.”
“The last time they came out was a while ago, but I'd give them an A because I haven't had a problem.”
“Real Plumbers is doing an excellent job, and I'm very happy with their service. They're punctual. We have a contract for them to check the furnace, air conditioning, and humidifier. I would certainly give them an A+.”
“I adore them. They do both HVAC and plumbing work for me. They're courteous, on time, and trustworthy. I've had a contract with them since 2008 or 2009, so I know they're someone I can depend on. They're an A+ company.”
“The owner of Real Plumbers is really friendly, and I've always gotten good, quick service. They get the job done right. They've been working for me for ten years, so they've done a lot of work for me. I would give them an A+ for sure.”
“They are absolutely outstanding—A+. I'm a happy client.”
“They're always timely. They always come quickly, so you don't have to wait long. I've grown to have a good experience with them. They check my A/C and heating. I chose them because they were associated with my father; he has a couple of rental properties, and he uses them. He referred them to me. They're an A+ company.”
“We've been their customer for years. They answer the phone when I call, they come when they say they will, and they fix the things that need to be fixed. They have done various repairs, and they generally maintain our heating and air conditioning. I would give them an A grade.”
“I've used them for probably 20 years. They're very responsive, very friendly, and organized in their appointments and follow-up, and I like the work they do. They have nice personnel, and it's just a pleasure dealing with them. They've done both HVAC and plumbing work. We had air conditioning work done. They do plumbing repairs on an as-called basis because we have things come up now and then like a leaky sink, faucet, or something like that. I would give them an A.”
“Their technicians are good. I have a service contract with them. They come out two or three times per year to check my equipment—the furnace and stuff. The technician's name is Kevin, and he comes to the house all the time. I've been doing business with them for years. I would say they get an A because they've been good to me.”
“They're just there when I need them—immediately. I trust them; they're very open and very honest with me. I would recommend Real Plumbers to anybody. They mostly have worked on my boiler. I have an older house that has radiant heat, and they seem to specialize in that boiler. I had them out this year because I had a small problem, and they fixed it. I would give them an A.”
“They showed up on time and fixed the problem. The last time they came was just for repairs, but they've done a lot of work for me—it was probably the seventh or eighth time. They've always shown up on time and done the right thing. I would give them an A.”
“I'm very happy with Real Plumbers. They were on time, and they did a good job. They came out for a repair. I chose them because I'd used them before, and I was happy with their work. I would rate them as an A.”
“I own and manage a couple of properties, and they've done work for me at both over the last decade that I've been dealing with them. I keep going back to them because they get the job done. They're professional. I'd give them an A.”
“I liked their response and the service—I like them. They're good. Recently, they just did a fall check, and I didn't need any work. I chose them because of a recommendation. I would give them an A-.”
“They were prompt and courteous. They came right out and took care of it, and the problem went away—that's all I know. We've used Real Plumbers for years—they're an A.”
