The most professional job I've seen. Very efficient. Very courteous. Very high quality.
I look forward to using them again.

Dear Raechel & Sope,
You already know how very pleased we were with the work you did for us in our apartment. So please use this note to spread the word to others who may be wise enough to engage your services.
Yours was without question the most professional and satisfying experience we have had in painting the various apartments we have called home in New York. Meticulous, attention to detail, extreme care, punctual, and delightful to work with -- are only a few of the terms I would use to describe 3fingerspainting.
We don't plan to move again soon, but if we do you'll hear from us.
All our best,
Alvin H. Perlmutter

They did a great job. On time and efficient. They were a pleasure to work with and gave good paint advice (I had no idea what I was doing). They also were well priced. I would defintely use them again.

we had our ceiling completely botched by a totally clueless contractor installing soundproofing. 3 fingers came to the rescue - they were meticulous, fast, efficient, and a pleasure to work with. from now on, we'll skip the contractor and go straight to 3 fingers - professionals who really know what they're doing.

These girls are OUTSTANDING!
After having them complete my own home, it is without hesitation that I happily recommend 3 Fingers Painting. Courteous, straightforward, punctual & fair; I searched long and hard before finding the right kind of company I could pass on to clients in good conscious. Its hard enough when you're remodeling your home, and it was so helpful to have someone there who knew exactly what needed to be done. They also had the courage where required to step up and say, “that's not in our field, but we have someone else who can help”. I only wish my contractor took a lesson from 3 Fingers Painting!!

The ladies were wonderful, total professionals who did a lovely job on our home. Even my building staff commented how diligent and hardworking Raechel and Sope were. We reccommend 3 Fingers without reservation.

We found Raechel and Sope through the AT website, and we were not disappointed. These women did outstanding work throughout our entire apartment, and they were always pleasant and professional. They delivered on all promises, including timing and quality. We look forward to working with them again.

Sandeep & Diya said...

Wow! Before we met Rachel & Sope our 90 year old walls had cracks/sags/tears all over. After they were done, we feel like we live in a new apartment. We cannot thank them enough for exceeding all our expectations and making our place home. Rachel and Sope worked extremely hard (stayed till 3am one night) and were highly responsible. We recommend 3 fingers without any hesitation. - Sandeep & Diya

Morgan & Caroline said...

These ladies are terrific! Raechel and Sope did a fantastic job removing some tricky wallpaper before they could start the painting. Our walls look beautiful. They also had to contend with some very humid weather, but they finished on time with a smile. We highly recommend them and hope to use them again in the future.

Chris & John said...

3 Fingers Painting was recommended to us by our plasterer after we had a bad experience with our first painters. We needed a lot of rooms painted quickly and 3 Fingers got the job done. They were friendly, quick, and left the house cleaner than they found it. Our house has a lot of old detail work and 107-year-old paster walls. They did a great job with it all and I'm sure it hasn't looked this good since it was first built. And their price was reasonable too. We'd definitely use them again and recommend them to others.

Raechel and Sope are terrific! I love the way my apartment looks. They are completely professional and responsible - there when they said they'd be, and completed the job beautifully when they said they would. All this and at a fair price. I have recommended them to all of my friends.

Did an unreal job on my place, it was a large job that involved moving a lot of heavy stuff and Raechel & Sope were extremely good tempered about dealing w/ it....They're actually coming back in to do more work on the place hopefully....

They are just good people in general and do a fantastic/extremely affordable job! I'd reccomend them to anyone!

In my experience 3 Fingers Painting were incredible. I met with several people and received a number of bids. Raechel and Sope were by far the most professional, trustworthy and reasonably priced. They are all around GOOD people who are very talented and did a hands down outstanding job with my place. I'd recommend them endlessly.

I am a professional interior designer, and run my own Holistic Design business. My philosophy is to work with like-minded people who share a similair approach to running a business with integrity and professionalism. 3FingersPainting has met this criteria plus some. Their work speaks for itself (pictures of the projects they have done for me will be posted on my website shortly so you can see for yourself at sleewright.com). They continually rise to the challenges that I present to them and never have been unable to meet my creative needs. There professional documentation also makes my job easier and all of my clients have had smiles from the experience of working with them. I highly recommend 3FingersPainting.

We used 3 Fingers to repair walls and paint a room in our apartment which was in sad shape--lots of cracks, holes from electrical work and water damage. Not to mention shoddy workmanship by a previous contractor which needed undoing. My husband, who spent much time painting and repairing the rest of the apartment, has meticulously high standards as he spent time as a painter some years back. The transaction from start to finish was the most pleasant I've ever had with a contractor. Great communication by phone and email, very attentive to every major and minor issue I mentioned, they began and finished on schedule and the workmanship and execution was extremely high. The work involved a lot of plastering and as I'm very pregnant, it was a concern that our home maintain some semblance of cleanliness. The "mess" was confined to the room where the work was being done and the final clean-up was very thorough--we didn't have to do a thing. My husband and I are both very pleased and would use their services again in a heartbeat.

3 Fingers painted our entire apartment this past spring and we have been telling all our friends and colleagues about the wonderful work they did. They are as professional and courteous as they are skilled - - and by that I mean they function at a high level on all fronts. We were more than pleased with their work. They were quick to respond to any changes/modifications that came up during the process and were able to work under less than ideal circumstances when they had to share the workspace with a contractor/subcontractors that were not as fastidious about cleaning up as they were. We recommend them highly.

3 fingers took about a week to paint my apartment and did a wonderful job. I wanted a perfectionist paintjob that would remedy the sins of drywallers past. I also wanted a painter who would protect my apartment and its belongings during the process, since everything was pretty much staying in the place during the job. 3 Fingers was the right choice.
Raechel, Sope and their crew are a pleasure to deal with, got along with my co-op, and do wonderful work. They also moved every item of movable furniture in my apartment, covered it carefully, and at the end of the odyssey put it all back in the right place. They pulled up all the exposed wire, painted under it, and put it back-- and all the hookups functioned!
The plastering and patching made the sheetrock look like plaster. 3 Fingers is on speed dial for the next time I paint a ceiling blue. They are reliable, responsible, dependable, and easy to deal with. Not cheap, but in this case you get what you pay for and I recommend them to all my friends.

I couldn't have asked for better to people to work with. They went well beyond a simple paint job and ensured that my apartment look beautiful down to every detail. They did an impeccable job, and it's clear they really care about every job they do.

Three fingers repainted my apartment and did a great job in doing so! The workmanship, communication and professionalism was excellent and very refreshing having dealt with numerous contractors/handymen in the past. I would highly recommend them!

3 Fingers are perfectionists. They paint your house as if they're painting they're own. careful, precise, flexible and talented. There's no better value than a job that is done well and with exceptional care.

They are the best. Professional, timely, neat, on budget and they go the extra yard. As an architect and owners rep for over 30 years I have seen it all both personally and professionally and Sope and Rachel rise to the top.

I can't recommend 3Fingers highly enough. Rachael & Sope are friendly, fast, professional, meticulous and extremely skilled. From the first contact to the finished product, I could not have been happier with their painting of my apartment.

I've had the opportunity to work with 3 Fingers on several projects and happily refer them to friends and other design professionals. Their attention to detail is hard to find in New York and they're so great to work with. These girls rock!

These ladies were sincerely the best, most professional and nicest painters I have ever hired. They are worth every penny. If you want your home or apartment done right use them!

These ladies are AWESOME! They were excellent to work with from initial contact. They took on the task of painting a huge amount of woodwork in my new apt. I'm talking SERIOUS woodwork all over the apt including wainscoting, built-in bookcases, built-in armwoires, etc. I was somewhat nervous about losing the distinct details in this beautiful woodwork, and many people told me I was nuts to even think about painting over it. That being said, I was not about to live in a dark wood paneled home. It just felt oppresive and overwhelmingly dark. 3 Fingers came to the rescue! Not only did they do a wonderul job painting all the walls and woodwork, but they managed to maintain all of the beautiful details within the wainscoting, etc. I am so thrilled with the outcome. Not to mention the fact that they posted photos on twitter as they worked, so I was able to track their progress without having to physically go down to the unit.
They are by far, the cleanest contractors I have ever worked with (and I've hired more than a few between 2 apt renovations over the last 6 years). I cannot recommend them enough!!!
