Yes, I have a profile on Thumbtack. I have received one buyer lead that didn't work out (they ended up renting). My hubby used the service last year to find someone to dig up stumps at a reasonable price.

If for no other reason, it is worthwhile to take the 10 minutes and build a profile. It is helpful for local citations.
