Whether its building maintenance, home repair or improvements, renovations, painting, assembling furniture, hooking up electronics or custom-built pieces, Get an Eric, LLC handyman and contractor service has you covered in Chicago.



Originally, known as The Handy Frenchman, Eric Marie was running a successful handyman business in Chicago, when his large corporate customer told another building manager that "You need to get an Eric," in response to who was doing such a great job for them. 

That big customer...was a large vacation rental company in the U.S, helping them on board and off board properties and manage preventive maintenance in Chicago and Miami.

So, he launched Get an Eric, LLC, helping customers with property updates, repairs, renovations, maintenance and other home projects, and added a certified electrician and plumber. 


Eric and his team of guys now provide handyman services to residents and business in Chicago that are in need of ethical and trustworthy professionals of integrity who get the job done right, on time and on budget. ALWAYS!

To prove it, Get an Eric has been a named Best Handyman in Chicago by HandymanReviewed.com.

Get an Eric, LLC says it all. That was the best testimonial a company can receive from a nationwide corporate customer. You can trust them, along with the other testimonials from happy customers.


We hope to add you to that list!​

We had the pleasure of renovating this classic home and updating it's look and feel for a family happy to returning home to Highland Park. 


Our suburban customer wanted a custom made kitchenette and floating bar for entertaining in their basement. This butcher block-type design in a dark stain is a real stand out against the grey cabinets. We'll be back to build a custom piece for the upstairs this spring.

This Chicago customer needed a proper office work space. This nook was the perfect place for a custom built-in desk that makes good use of the space, providing inspiration.

Our customer wanted to breathe new life into this sideboard. We sanded and stained it in a nice new, more modern finish. 


A small business owner wanted a front desk/reception area that needed to be custom built. This is just Phase I. Next, we will add tile and further customization.

Stay tuned for more project updates!




"Eric showed up early, was very communicative and all around good guy. Would definitely hire again in the future."

Find the best home handyman

Anyone can call himself or herself a handyman. Which means that in times of high demand like now, there’s been an increase in scams. “We do a lot of work after other contractors have taken a customer’s money and disappeared,” says Eric Marie, owner of Get an Eric, LLC, in Chicago. “This makes the wait time for jobs even worse.” He and Kristina Tuttle, director of client services at Best Handyman Boston, offer tips on finding someone you can trust.
