History of Phil Green the Best Handyman in Maryville
Phil Green, the owner and founder of Rapid Repair Pro has been learning and honing his craft in all fields for over forty years now.
The early early early years:
It all started years ago when Phil’s dad’s buddy gave Phil some scrap lumber. Phil took that lumber when he was twelve (TWELVE!!!) years old and (with some help and guidance) built what all kids dream of building: an exclusive clubhouse for him and his friends. He didn’t know it then, but this began his journey to becoming the best handyman in Maryville.
The early early years:
He slowly learned the craft and soaked in all the knowledge he could from the people around him. When he was a teenager he was already gaining a reputation of being the best handyman/carpenter in school. By the time he was in high school he was already ridiculously good. So good that when he signed up for shop class as an elective instead of learning he essentially started his first business. During class time when others were learning the basics, he was taking custom orders from the teachers. In doing so at this young age he taught himself how to be responsible by managing his time and learning to listen to the customers (aka teachers) and overall creating a positive atmosphere that ended in a 100% customer satisfaction rating on his results.

The early years:
In the year 1980, after high school, he decided to use his skills and time to help his nation by enlisting in the US Coast Guard. For six years he enjoyed serving his country, the United States of America, as a US Coast Guard Boatswains Mate Second class. He started by serving on the icebreaker USCGC Westwind where he was in the frigid artic. He then went on to serve at a marine safety office inspecting vessels and investigating pollution. His last assignment was on the USCGC Ute where he was in the warm toasty Key West. While he was in the coldest cold of the artic, in the middle of it all at the office, and in the warmest warm in Key West he learned a lot about leadership and responsibility.
After six years he decided to come back to his home area which is around Collinsville and took another step of becoming the best handyman in the area by officially becoming a carpenter in 1986. He slowly but surely learned, remembered, retained, and honed his skills in carpentry, plumbing, and electrical work for the next couple decades.
