5.0 Tim M. Chicago, IL

Great job, very fast service and the price was great. I got several quotes, and theirs was the lowest, by a long shot.

5.0 Carlos V. Chicago, IL

I had been 1 month with another company trying to schedule a visit. One Friday at lunch I signed up at this site. Three hours and 5 phone calls later I had scheduled the removal for the very next day first thing in the morning. I was faxed and email all the documents and certifications that were needed byt the condo association. The job was completed the very following day and everything was left spotless.

5.0 Linda B. Chicago, IL

after I contacted Servicemagic, Victor Ramos of Real Time called me back almost instantaneously. He was equally prompt in getting the job done. His pricing is competitive. I recommend him strongly. Linda Burke

For the most part this went very well. Good friendly service, did what was promised at a better than other guys price. Had a little issue with some paperwork being promised at a certain date and came later after a phone call was made. Otherwise very good.

3.0 Rich G. Palos Hills, IL

Victor Ramos showed up 2 1/2 hours early without notice. He was wearing no safety clothing and used no mask when he went up to the attic. He placed samples in plastic bags and when he came down, asked for payment but had no receipt to provide me for services performed. Not very professional. He left telling me my report would be completed in 2-3 days and it was. Someone else from the company was to call on 3/4 to arrange dropping off the reports and collecting the fee. No one called.

5.0 Spiro G. Chicago, IL

I used real time for asbestos testing, they showed up on time and had the results from the lab faxed to my house in a very professional format ahead of the promised time. I would use them again.

5.0 Bellwood, IL

They were patient waiting for me to set the appointment, but as soon it was set they "got 'er" done. Quick, professional, and clean. I would definitely recommend them.

1.0 Michael L. Skokie, IL

They were quick enough to call and set up an appointment, for which they were on time. However, the business card I received was dirty and bent and therefore not very professional. For someone testing for potential asbestos in my home, I was surprised that Jasper didn't wear any protective equipment, and put the sample he collected in what appeared to be a used plastic zip-loc bag. I was told I would have the results in two days, however it was more than a week before I got the them. I did not get a receipt when I paid Real Time, and when I asked for one was told it would come when the report was mailed. Over a week and still no report!!

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.
