Mr. Appliance of Reno
Comments: Per Cindy: GREAT SERVICE! Fridge stopped working on the day after Christmas (when it was FULL, of course!). I called first thing in the morning, spoke with Season (who was a great source of information and a perfect first contact with the company – she’s fabulous!) and she scheduled Trevor. He was here within a couple of hours of my original call (as scheduled). He made a temporary fix so that it would work until the replacement part came in. When they got the part the next day, he showed up on time again, got the part installed and verified that everything was working. The job got scheduled and completed quickly and correctly, within the timeframe promised, and by pleasant, courteous and professional people. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
Todd Copenhaver Architect
Comments: Per John: Todd initially did our master bathroom remodel in our smaller unit which included adding a tub to our shower only. Then he did our entire large townhouse remodel. He’s very unassuming and very creative. I think he’s great and would use him again if I ever have the need.
Prosource AV & Integration
Comments: Per John: Jason has worked with us on two of our properties. In The Montage, he did our home theaters, shades, Internet, and Savant whole home integration with remotes. He also worked directly with The Montage installing the video conference system in the 3rd floor meeting room. One caveat: Since the pandemic, Jason has been very busy. He may be late and seem unresponsive; however, we find it’s been worth the wait.
Five Step Carpet Care
Comments: Per Jill: This is one of the few carpet cleaning companies that will clean carpets and rugs in high-rise units. Joe was efficient, fair, thorough, and professional.
CARPETS & FLOORING:
Comments: Per John: Dean has done an excellent job on our LVT and carpet in two of our units in The Montage. He has also done work directly for The Montage including carpeting and the 6th floor Marmoleum.
UPDATE: DEAN NO LONGER WANTS TO DO ANY WORK IN THE MONTAGE DUE TO ALL THE HEADACHES INVOLVED. HOWEVER, HIS COMPANY IS STILL GREAT FOR NON-MONTAGE PROJECTS.
COMPUTERS & NETWORKS:
Need input here.
CONTRACTOR (FULL B):
Tim Milton Construction LLC
Comments: Per John: Finding a Full B Contractor to work in The Montage is difficult but Jim came through for us. Currently (April 2021), they are so busy they are turning away work but if you need a Full B Contractor, give him a try – he may be able to squeeze you in.
DOORS & WINDOWS (THE MONTAGE WHITE OUTSIDE DOORS & WINDOWS):
The Montage Chief Engineer
Comments: Per John: If you are having issues with door or window alignment, leaks, wind noise, etc., David Rosequist will add your unit(s) to the schedule for inspection and repair. I had my 2 units done and the service provider did a great job getting everything adjusted properly. To get on the schedule, send David an email describing your issue(s) along with your contact info and unit number.
Nailed It Drywall
Comments: Per John: A very nice guy whose company does incredible work. When they are done, you won’t be able to tell where their drywall stops and the old drywall begins. If you call him, please let him know you are from The Montage and that John Wade referred you.
Comments: Per John: I called Action after my first electrician dropped the ball. Stephen did the work necessary to complete the job. He was very nice and detail-oriented. Action pricing is very reasonable and they do a lot of other work in The Montage so they know the building well.
Comments: Per Ellen: Glenn is professional, easy to deal with, and efficient. He just did a few quick things – replaced lights, smoke detectors – but I wouldn’t hesitate to call him again.
Legacy Fire Services
Comments: Per John: After my painter painted the sprinkler heads, Legacy replaced them. They also supplied custom officially painted sprinkler head covers that match my ceiling paint. They did a great job and were reasonably priced. Nick, who did the actual work, was previously with the company that services The Montage so he knows the building well including how to turn off the water while the work is being done.
High Caliber Glass
Comments: Per John: Wade and his team have done two units for us including mirrors, shower doors, full glass walls, bar counters, backsplashes, etc. Their work is excellent and their prices very reasonable. They have also done many other units in The Montage. If you call them, please let them know you are from The Montage and that John Wade referred you.
Comments: Per Jill: My glass shower door dislodged from the moulding. I was told this is a common problem in many units. Royal Glass was familiar with the problem, had helped other unit owners with the same issue, and knew exactly how to repair it. They were professional, knowledgeable, and thorough.
HANDYMAN & MAINTENANCE:
Comments: Per Myra: Terrific, super competent handyman. Able to do all kinds of handyman odd jobs. Reasonably priced. And a really nice human, to boot!
HOUSEKEEPER / HOUSE CLEANER:
Beatriz “Betty” Chavez
Comments: Per Tara: She is exceptional, timely, and thorough.
Comments: Per Julie: Very thorough and professional. Excellent work.
Comments: Per Kris: FYI, I tried this person Maria and her phone is disconnected. Just to keep things updated.
Monica’s House Cleaning
(775) 544-3445 & (775) 544-4575
Comments: Per Vicki: We have used Monica’s House Cleaning Service since we purchased our first condo here in Reno. She cleans my house and the condo we own and rent out at The Montage. She comes highly recommended by us as she has been with us for literally 10+ years. Monica runs the business and her mother Blanca does the cleaning with other helpers. They come, clean, leave quickly, and do a fantastic job.
Comments: Per Jill: Desert Air did my annual HVAC check up. They are very familiar and comfortable with the HVAC systems in our units and were thorough and professional.
Mountain West Heating and Air Conditioning
Comments: Per Julie: AMAZING. Andrew replaced our air conditioner. He was reasonably priced, understood our unique unit, tried other methods before replacement (many others just suggested replacement). He was second cheapest but amazing service and we had great confidence in his abilities. Highly recommend Andrew for anything.
Comments: Per Jill: Andrew’s company provided amazing, prompt service at a very fair price. Thanks to Julie for listing it in the Provider List.
Comments: Per Rich and Barb: I also used Andrew – Mountain West this year for a full unit replacement as the air conditioning was not working. He is a pleasure to work with and very efficient. Glad to hear that others agree. A young man with a new baby and a successful business!

Alpine Lock & Key Inc.
Comments: Per John: They have changed locks in my unit on the same day I called. They are close by on Ryland to get keys made, etc. Friendly, fast service from multiple persons on multiple occasions.
Campbell’s One & Done Moving Service
Comments: Per Kathleen: Jason is a very competent and careful mover. He and his team take pride in their work. He moved all my possessions into storage without a glitch. I highly recommend him for any small or large job. He is familiar with The Montage.
Comments: Per John: I contacted Jason about using his moving service and to see if he had any changes to this post. After an email and multiple calls over a 3-week period, he has still not replied. I would think twice about using any service provider who is unresponsive.
The UPS Store
Comments: Per John: They have notarized many documents for me at a cost of $5–$15 per document. They are close by on Keystone at 5th next to to Save Mart. Friendly, fast service from multiple persons on multiple occasions.
PAINTING & STAINING:
Finish Professional Painting, Inc.
Comments: Per John: Ruben and his team did an amazing job painting our unit and we are very demanding customers when it comes to painting. I wish I knew about Ruben and his company sooner.
Dey Fit Endurance Training
Comments: Per Heather: Brandon has been helping me with strength training since 2018. I was terrified of all the gym equipment, but my Dr. said I needed to work on strength/weight bearing exercises for my bone health. With Brandon’s help, I have come a long way. He is dependable, professional and knows his business. I appreciate that he tailors the sessions to my particular needs. I highly recommend his fitness services and appreciate the convenience of our sessions right here at The Montage gym.

Jet Plumbing & Drain Services
Comments: Per John: Multiple residents including myself have had positive feedback re Jet Plumbing. E.g., they did a good job replacing Heather’s garbage disposal, fixing my kitchen drain, and rebuilding my toilets. Note: Jet Plumbing does not do HVAC work at The Montage.
Western Nevada Supply
Comments: Per John: Katie is absolutely wonderful. She has worked with us on four of our properties and we would definitely work with her on any future property.
REAL ESTATE SERVICES:
ERA Realty Central
Comments: Per John: I have worked with Mary on residential, multi-family residential, and commercial property purchases and sales. Most recently, she sold my unit 614 in The Montage for a full-price, all cash deal that closed within 2 weeks. She is also very detail-oriented and even catches errors made by the other agents and/or title companies. And, another benefit, she lives in The Montage so she knows the building well and is readily available for listings and showings.
TILE, GRANITE & SLATE:
D&L Tile, Inc.
Comments: Per John: Steve’s company has done fantastic work in three of our properties including two units in The Montage. The work for us included tile, granite, slate, and Dekton. They have also done work for other units and directly for The Montage including the tile in the lobby.
Comments: Per John: This is a unique, metal-based perforated shade product that reduces heat yet you can see through it during the day and others cannot see in. Diana did all 3 stories of our windows at The Montage.
Battle Born Blinds & Repair
Comments: Per Jill: Very knowledgeable about the building and blind options and repairs.
Comments: Per John: I spoke with Gil and he will only do repairs in The Montage because the metal in the soffit areas prevents him from doing installation work.
WOODWORK, CABINETS & CARPENTRY:
Legacy Home Improvement
Comments: Per John: Max and his partner Anderson are both perfectionists that do excellent work. For us, they did our walk-in master closet, built-in cabinets, a wedge-shaped desk, and an L-shaped table. They have very creative ideas and are reasonably priced for such quality custom work.
Comments: Per John: We could not find high-quality, modern, European style cabinets in Reno, so we went to the Bay Area and had Leicht cabinets (German) designed by Blue Plum. They look and work great although they take about 4 months to get delivered. Scott was very patient as he created 2 kitchens and a bunch of other cabinets for our bedrooms, offices, and laundry. Definitely worth the drive if you want those type of cabinets.
