About Darrell Babboni:

Darrell was born and raised in Somers, NY, and his parents were divorced when he was three. His dad left when he was five, and his mom had little to no money. The family couldn’t afford to pay someone to fix things around the house, so Darrell had to learn. Their church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, helped to put food on the table when they couldn’t, and the men in the church helped fill a father’s role in Darrell’s life when his couldn’t. Darrell thanks God for those people He put in his life and for the mother He gave him. It was they who instilled the ethics, values, and morals that help drive Darrell and his company to where it is today.

Because Darrell’s family couldn’t afford to pay people to fix things, he had to try it himself. He broke more things than he fixed, and probably made his mom cry more than he made her laugh, but he never gave up. By the time Darrell was 12 years old, he was already knocking on doors asking neighbors if they needed their grass cut, driveways shoveled, or hedges clipped. By the time he was in high school, he had started working with a company called the “Somer’s Job Mart,” which matched up high school kids with local homeowners looking for someone to lift and move things and do manual labor around the house.

By the time Darrell got to college, he was starting to build his own client base and buying his own tool set. Darrell would work for anyone that needed something done. Whether it was babysitting or washing windows, fixing a broken door or painting a railing, he was a true handyman for hire. It was then that he got a call from his mom saying, “You’re a Honey-Do.” Darrell didn’t know what that meant, but after she explained it, it made perfect sense. All his customers were women whose husbands either worked in the city, commuted all day, or just weren’t handy. Someone had to take care of the Honey-Do-List. From then on, Darrell was Darrell Babboni of The Honey-Do-Men, The Handyman Extraordinaires—and the name stuck.

Darrell graduated from Westchester Community College in 1998 with an associate’s degree in the performing arts and with a pretty steady and loyal customer base. Although he dabbled in the arts a little, there is a big difference between doing it as a hobby and depending on it to put food on the table. Construction always paid the bills, and Darrell was good at it. Darrell loved it with all his heart—and still does. Darrell doesn’t know many people that can get up day after day and say, “I love my job.” But, He does.
