McKendry's husband is in the Navy and is stationed in the Middle East for several months at a time. "We have four cats, two dogs and two kids," she says. "I need somebody who can do a lot of different things, and Steve fits the bill. We refer to him in our neighborhood as the 'other husband' for all of us."
Description of work: "I use Steve [Brooks, the owner] for pretty much everything, including mowing the yard, cleaning the house, baby-sitting and handyman things. He's a great find!"
Member comments: "I have a 40-pound Boston terrier mix named Petey, and Steve's the only person who can cut his nails. I was complaining about it one day and he said, 'Oh, I can do that.' He sat there and started talking with him and feeding him from a box of Cheerios and clipped his nails."
