First, let me say I am a contractor and have been in the construction and remodeling business for 30+years. I recognize good work when I see it. I purchased a house in Montgomery County and needed a re-key done because the previous owner had renters. I checked and went with Anariz’s because his experience was good and his price was one of the best. Performance-Anthony came out on time for our appointment , and after a short discussion of my requirements, he went to work. He was very fast and has precision techniques. He even made great recommendations to details I didn’t think of. When he finished (unexpectedly fast), all locks were exactly the way I wanted them, and all new keys worked smoothly with no sticking or fumbling. I would hire this guy anytime for anything related to locks and re-keys! Very precise and thorough.
