Meet Kevin Connolly ‘The Acton Handyman’


Kevin F. Connolly, ‘The Acton Handyman’

 “My personal story is simple.  I enjoy sharing my knowledge and applying my skills to help solve problems for people in my community.  I’ve worked in the residential trades and home construction industry since I was a teen.  I spent a few years working in commercial construction and missed having personal interaction with homeowners.  Years ago, becoming a hometown handyman allowed me to do what I enjoy most while having the flexibility to spend time with my children as they grew.  Today, Acton Handyman is our family’s business.  I spend my time building relationships with our clients by serving their home maintenance and repair needs. With years of corporate experience behind her, my wife makes certain that our family business operates smoothly. Our shared goal is to deliver quality workmanship in a timely manner at a reasonable price.  We appreciate your business and look forward to hearing from you.”

Best Regards,
‘The Acton Handyman’

Acton Handyman Remodeling is owned by Kevin and his wife, Patty. Here is the statistic of which they are most proud:

Over more than thirty years, two-thirds of The Acton Handyman’s clients have become repeat customers

In 2000, when his wife’s company relocated the family to New York, Kevin became the “hometown handyman” serving neighborhoods in Westchester County. Because Kevin was such an active member of the community (many people knew him as the gentleman who directed the morning traffic at the local elementary school and a “meals on wheels” program) he quickly connected with new clients one on one, and seventy-nine percent became repeat customers.

Kevin earns his loyalty by being sincere, competent, and reliable.  As one client shared, “You give Kevin a problem and he can fix it.  He is mechanically inclined and creative.  I don’t repair or replace anything until I have Kevin take a look at it.”  Once clients come to know and trust Kevin through handyman projects, many feel a sense of relief and invite him back to complete all the other repairs and updates they have been postponing.

Now living in his wife’s hometown of Acton, Massachusetts, Kevin continues his commitment to providing highly skilled and professional handyman services with the utmost in personal care and attention to detail. He enjoys doing the work himself, as well as teaching his assistants and associates the skills they need to deliver according to his high expectations of quality.
