About the Owners

The idea for Rent A Nephew came about 20 years ago over coffee at the kitchen table. Arthur and Kim Verner discussed starting a business where Kim’s senior clients could hire Arthur as a pretend “Nephew” when they needed work done on their car or home. They could have someone to advocate for them and without the fear of being ripped off. When talking with their friends and colleagues, they realized many busy professionals don’t have the time or skills to complete jobs around their home.

Arthur Scott Verner
Arthur Scott Verner’s path to Rent A Nephew was not a straight line to a handyman business. His expertise and skills were built over time, spending 30 years in many different fields. All of this time and experience has led to the skillset he needs to complete the wide range of tasks and jobs for his clients today. Arthur was a licensed auto mechanic and trained as a home inspector, with his family roots in the general contracting business. He also worked three decades as a professional studio engineer, utilizing and growing his knowledge in wiring and repairing electrical equipment. His training as a home inspector, has given Arthur a keen eye and specific knowledge in assisting those looking to sell their homes.

Kimberly Strauchon Verner
As an elder law attorney, Kim Verner crossed paths with seniors and individuals with disabilities needing assistance with basic home repairs and projects. Receiving assistance from a trusted handyman would allow them to live independently as long as possible, in the home they love. Kim’s experience as an elder law attorney makes it possible for Rent A Nephew to work with executors of estates and trustees of trusts. She also understands the unique challenges adult children encounter assisting their aging parents and homes.

We respect the time and skill of our professional colleagues devoted to specific specialities. We don’t take on large projects that would be better suited for general contractors, such as those taking more than 3 to 5 days to complete, or work best left to licensed plumbers, electricians, or roofers. ~Arthur & Kim
