BEST HANDYMAN: Felix Cordero

Yes, handymen are supposed to be, uh, handy, as in versatile, but Felix takes it to absurd extremes. Painting, carpentry, electric, plumbing, roofing, those are just a few of the things we’ve seen him do, and do well. What else? Crochet? Hang-gliding lessons? Denture-fitting? If there’s one thing you want in a handyman besides versatility and competence, it is, of course, honesty — and we can unequivocally vouch for Felix in that regard. He charges a very fair, by-the-job rate. And for added value, he’ll bring his New York City wit to your place and throw in a standup comedy routine at no extra charge. He has no e-mail, no website; dude’s too busy doing handy work. 727-773-6098
