  • review rating 5  I have had a really great experience with Bigstar Smart Home. They are responsive, professional and caring. They have updated my security, set up my ergonomic desk, and my printer and even hung a very large mirror. They have been a pleasure to work with! I would definitely recommend them.

  • review rating 5  I just bought a new house and was contacted by Bigstar a couple of days before I closed. Scott met with me the day I closed and offered a very nice package to cover several things I needed. The meeting was great and Scott is a very friendly and helpful person. We discussed what I needed and he didn't push on things I didn't. His contractors and employees were efficient, friendly and conscientious. I would certainly encourage others to utulize his services and I will be contacting him in the future for more work.
