In 2015, Ray also founded Disch & Sons Distiller, Hopewell, New Jersey and a former  co-founder of Triumph Brewing Company, Power Works and Disch Real Estate. While in real estate, Ray was  asked constantly by clients “Who can I get to do landscaping, plumbing, painting, electrical work, etc.”?  With THM, he answered that question and delivers an extraordinary single source solution.

About Total Home Manager

Total Home Manager offers a single-source solution for complete interior and exterior home repair, maintenance, and management services. From handyman tasks to small renovations, we have you covered.  One call to THM is all you need to do – we take it from there.  You’ll meet with one of the project managers and together, you’ll discuss the repair or project at hand.  THM will provide the estimate, oversee the job, coordinate with the carpenters and subcontractor team, and do a final inspection.  And when the project is completed, you’ll get just one invoice.  It’s that simple, it’s that complete.  One call, one solution.
