"I'd never heard of Joel before answering his ad online, and didn't know what to expect. I was impressed that he responded quickly to my call. He arrived when he said he would, and he was totally concentrated on my computer questions. He is clearly knowledgeable, extremely helpful, and most of all - for me - patient! He is generous with his knowledge of all computers, and encourages me to contact him whenever I can't understand a computer related issue. He was able to answer all my questions, and usually expanded on his answers, leaving me much more knowledge than I had before he gave his help. I feel that I have found an honest, principled expert who actually wants to 'fix the problem'. My husband and I count ourselves fortunate to have found Joel, and we intend to stay in touch with him for computer help. In our opinion, he's 'one-in-a-million'."
