Recent Review: DO NOT enlist the services of David (Alex) Bogard, doing business as the Bella Vista Handyman. The short version: I had to take him to the Small Claims Division of the Bentonville District Court to recover money I had paid him in advance for materials for a job that he stated would take 10 days to complete. After 47 days, the job was not even close to completion, at which point I demanded a refund. When he refused, I threatened to sue him to recover my money, at which point he threatened me with a counterclaim. I won a judgment against him in Small Claims, and he still owes me roughly $185-200 from that judgment. If you'd like more information about the case, you can contact the Small Claims Division of the Bentonville District Court and ask about case SC10-91. If you'd like the longer version of my review, you may read on for more information. I contracted with David (Alex) Bogard, the Bella Vista Handyman, for minor kitchen remodeling and extensive remodeling for two bathrooms on 03/26/2010, a job that he stated would take 10 days to complete. He completed the minor kitchen remodeling and the demolition of one of the bathrooms on 03/29/2010. From that date forward, Mr. Bogard came to my property to work for no more than 10 hours in a 47 day period. Many times during that 47 day period, he stated that he would be at my property to continue work, and never showed up. Additionally, he stated on two occasions prior to completion that he needed money in advance for materials, an amount totaling $1600. On 05/06/2010, 47 days later, he was not even close to completing the job. The bathroom that he had started was still in a demolished state and unusable. As such, he was not even close to starting the remodeling of the second bathroom. At this point, I demanded a refund, to which he initially complied. When he refused, roughly 24 hours later, I threatened him with a lawsuit to recover my money. He then proceeded to threaten me with a counterclaim, stating that he had a signed contract from me that didn't have a completion date. He thought, therefore, that he would easily win a lawsuit and reclaim his legal fees. Though Mr. Bogard thought a signed contract without a completion date would exonerate him, as stated in his counterclaim against me, the judge decided in my favor for judgment. In fact, Mr. Bogard still owes me approximately $185-200 from that judgment. Again, if you'd like further information, you can reference the case that's still open by contacting the Bentonville District Court and inquiring about case SC10-91.
