Customer Comments:

"Mark is very reliable, his estimates are exact when billed, outstanding quality-workmanship, and leaves his work area as he found it.  Furthermore, he takes the time to explain what needs to be done and treats your home as it is his own.  I have used him for a couple of other projects andwill continue to do so." Mark Sprague, Arlington, VA

"I wanted to echo my wife's sentiment this afternoon; you both met and exceeded our expectations and we are very happy with the end result.  I'm glad we have such a skilled electrician in our personal phone book. Thanks again." Steve Barton, Arlington, VA

"Mark's workmanship, attention to detail, neatness in cleaning up, his empathy with the client, his excellent communication skills, his careful and considerate LISTENING skills, made it a pleasure to deal with him. He is worth every penny of his fee and more." Christopher Slitor, Arlington, VA

"Mark Young re-wired my home a few years ago. The job was extensive with multiple new electric panels. Mark performed brilliantly; his work and attention to detail are truly second to none. I would not consider hiring anyone else for electrical work on my home." Benjamin Gerhig, Arlington, VA

“Mark is one heck of a professional electrician; you use him once, you’ll keep going back to him. It’s been 6 years now for me. The range of his electrical services is extensive, but big or small, he does an equally outstanding work. His trademark is that he’s meticulous and reliable, easy to work with, and he not only charges reasonably, he does not surprise you with additional billing. When he’s done with the job, not only I was satisfied with his work, but I could see that he was satisfied, too. I recommend him with no reservation whatsoever." –Vic in Arlington, Va

Yelp 5 Star Reviews:

5/12/22 - " We have been using Mark Young as our primary electrician for almost a decade. He has always been extremely responsive, honest, skilled and fair. We have used his services both at our primary home as well as at our rental house. Over the years, he has installed recessed lights for us, fixed faulty switches, installed dimmers, helped replace old fixtures for newer/safer ones, installed wiring for new motion sensors, installed electric garage door, added to our fuse box, replaced old outlets with GFCI, etc. Highly recommend this electrician." K.F. Arlington

12/12/19 - "I needed a faulty dimmer replaced and Mark was quick to reply to my request for a quote and to complete the job. He was knowledgeable, worked efficiently, and his price was very fair. My dad is an electrician however is out of state, so I will definitely be using Mark for future electrican projects. Highly recommend!" Kimberly S., Arlington

5/24/19 - "I had several CFL bulbs stuck in sockets of my recessed light fixtures. Mark was able to remove the bulbs without breaking them, which was a huge relief given the mercury danger. Another electrician I had consulted previously quoted four times the price Mark charged and stated that the bulbs would need to be broken and parts of the fixtures replaced. Mark was able to remove the bulbs quickly and without replacing any parts. You can tell that Mark is extremely experienced and conservative in his approach. I highly recommend Mark and will use him for any future electrical needs." Sunny S., Arlington

1/19/19 - "Mr. Young quickly diagnosed our lighting problem and fixed it. His pricing was much, much more reasonable than expected. He changed out several switches and plugs and still charged us only $78. We were very happy and if we need an electrician again plan to call him." Daniel J., Arlington

12/12/18 - "Mark is extremely effective and has integrity.  He was responsive, got here within 48 hours of my outreach. He arrived when he said he would. He could have charged me for a huge project, but instead found a simpler way (code compliant) To fix the problem.  Professional, Service oriented and focused.  I would hire him again in a heartbeat." Susan S., Arlington

10/28/18 - "Mark is amazing!  We had an electrical problem in our condo: half the condo had no electrical power.   We attempted to flip the circuit breakers, but nothing worked.   So we called Mark.
Mark picked up - though it was on a Sunday night which appeared to be outside of his normal business hours; and he walked us through repairing the problem.   It was a huge help and relief to get my power back! Thank you, Mark! I will be calling Mark if I have another electrical problem in the future." Emily F., Arlington

7/27/18 - "Mark is a very skilled electrician. He fixed several issues all in one day, and did it for a very fair price. He also went and bought all the additional parts that were required. I highly recommend Mark. He is a really nice guy as well as a fantastic electrician." Michael D., Arlington

12/4/17 - "I called three local electricians who did not answer the phone. Then I called Mark to get a feel for pricing to fix an issue in my home. He answered right away. I described the issue and rather than taking my money he suggested I call the manufacture of my product. Due to the nature of the product and my understanding of wiring he advised I "save a little money" and try calling the manufacturer. He was honest and forthright, something uncommon among other service providers. I'll absolutely reach out again if I am unable to get the work done myself." Ryan J., Alexandria

7/6/16 - "Mark is a great electrician and nice guy. He is the kind of professional who will look at your situation/listen to your desires and tell you honestly makes the most sense to do (which sometimes is nothing). When he does do work, he's on time and does what you ask while leaving the site neat and tidy when he's done. I had him do some work on our house just before we moved in several years ago and have called him back on multiple occasions since. Couldn't be happier with his work." Cole D., Arlington
