We are a “multi-trade” property services company – But what is that?
In short – If it’s to do with the design, upgrade or maintenance of your property, we can do it all. We do not need to rely on multiple trades to complete your project. This saves a huge amount of time and money!
My JOURNEY So far
Hi there, I’m Neil Greenfield, owner/operator of Greenfield & Sons and Father to four big, strong boys, three of whom live and work with me. My eldest has since flown the nest and lives with his partner in MK. I’m still trying to earn enough money to entice him back to join our ranks!
I’ve lived in MK since I was 19 (I’m 45 ish now) and actually started life as a digital project manager, building software solutions for various industries, but after 18 years at the age of 36, I realised the London commute, offices, desks and too many meetings was not the future that would earn me the quality of life that I sought, so I threw caution to the wind and qualified as a locksmith in 2015/16. (There’s a cool, somewhat random story behind this so feel free to ask when you see me!)
‘Stay Safe Locksmith’ was my first brand. It did really well and I loved it! Driving around in my van, singing loudly (badly), eating bacon rolls from snack wagons and finally feeling a freedom that I’d been craving for many years. Using my hands, creativity, solving problems and helping people confirmed that a future as a tradesman was most definitely for me. As time went by, my list of services grew, usually by customer request, my brand changed names too many times (a side effect from too much time in Marketing) and now Greenfield & Sons is my latest incarnation.
I welcome you to the site and appreciate the time you may take exploring our content so far.
Meet the… ‘& Sons’
My eldest and firstborn (something he delights in reminding the others). Currently 27 year old 'H' only works the odd evening/weekend as he has a full time job as a water treatment engineer.
Carter is 20 currently and has worked with me since his carpentry apprenticeship at 18. He works with me for two weeks a month, giving him plenty of free time for personal pursuits and to train, ready to join the Army in 2023.
Camera shy Max works with me on a Wednesday and Friday while he juggles Sport & Leadership Academy at college. He's one part of a 'buy one get one free' deal I snagged 18 years ago.
The 8lb 14oz twin that stole all the nutrients while cultivating, Blake is also at college, studying Performing Arts, so again squeezes in a little time with me when his timetable allows. (And no, that's not 'his' Mom, that would be weird)
4 Reasons You Should Use Us
1. Probably cheaper AND better!
In general I think tradesmen charge too much (honestly!) although I also know that it’s a lot of hard, skilled work to do well, however, this personal opinion guides our own pricing. We don’t charge a fortune because we do what we do because we love it. I earn a lot less money now than I did as a project manager (with no regrets) so when you think about booking us, know we are there to excel and do amazing work, not just because we want to get paid.
2. Building relationships of trust
3. Multi-trade flexibility
Because we are ‘multi-trade’ we do not need to wait for any other tradesmen to complete their part of the project, which can lead to huge delays, longer build times and increased costs. We are trained carpenters, plumbers, decorators, tilers, floor-ers, you name it! It’s actually easier to tell people “The only thing we DON’T do, is gas and electrical”. This means we can complete virtually all tasks you have outstanding quickly, efficiently and cost effectively!
All five of us are over 6’0″ and that makes us reeeeally good at reaching high things. Have you even seen us paint a ceiling?
ESTABLISHED, REPUTABLE, FAMILY RUN
