Best Home Services Overview

Best was founded in 1992 as a small electrical business in Florida by Perry and Marilyn Hodges. In just several years, the company employed nearly 50 people and expanded throughout several counties in SW Florida. Always a family focused business, their sons Keegan and Chadd began working at Best…at age 12. Gaining valuable experience early on, they both took leadership roles in the company in 2007 and decided to add HVAC services to the impressive roster of home services.

Several years later, Best added plumbing – officially changing the name from Best Electric to Best Home Services. Never content, the business has since expanded, opening a beautiful facility in Sarasota, expanding into Tampa and most recently, creating a new, fast growing operation in Orlando, Florida. In 2019, with over 300 employees, the business was a founding partner of Apex Service Partners, giving access to talent and capital to continue the outstanding growth.
