Meet Chris Manos, John Frize, and Christina Merkle of Coastal Handyman Pros & John Christopher Construction

Today we’d like to introduce you to Chris Manos, John Frize, and Christina Merkle.

John and Chris both grew up in households where their fathers were Contractors and Mothers were Realtors.

As teenagers, they would both work alongside their fathers to learn the trade.

When they met in 2015, they quickly became friends and had a commitment to create a construction company that had higher standards than most construction companies.

In March 2017, they formed The OC Handyman R&R, now known as Coastal Handyman Pros.

Has it been a smooth road?
Since the start of the business in March 2017, we have doubled in revenue every month. This great news also has its own challenges.

One of the biggest challenges to a fast-growing company is hiring the right people to do the work. It takes time to test someone’s skills and assign them to the right job.

Luckily, our management team has put processes in place for quality control and new hire on boarding.

What do you guys specialize in?
We specialize in residential and commercial repair and remodeling services.

Let’s touch on your thoughts about our city – what do you like the most and least?
We love the culture and various styles of architecture this city has to offer. There is a lot of trendy art and modern designs in LA and Orange County.
