Lauer Caretaking Services Harbor Springs Michigan


Michael P. – Harbor Springs, MI

Bryan Lauer and his staff have worked for us in Harbor Springs for the last ten years. We began using Bryan and his pest control services to spray for spiders and insects prior to the summer season. That evolved into Lauer acting as our full-time property manager. Bryan and his crew either self-perform or manage and sub-contract the following services for us: lawn care, trimming, gardening, house inspection, painting, plumbing, electrical, seasonally placing and removing all exterior furniture, supplying and stacking firewood, snow plowing, twice weekly trash pick-up, etc. We have always felt his pricing is fair and competitive, and we have found Bryan and each of his employees to be friendly and professional. We travel a great deal and feel very secure with the knowledge that Lauer is looking out for our best interests and protecting a major asset of ours. We feel very fortunate to have Bryan and his services available to us.
