  • *****

    I used 1st Choice Plumbing to repair our plumbing issues. 1st Choice Plumbing was extremely detail oriented and professional. I highly recommend 1st Choice Plumbing for all of your plumbing needs. They do excellent work and provides excellent service.

    I found this company through Yelp and I was very pleased. I needed to get a second opinion estimate for a client prior to closing on a home. Linneer was on time, he educated me and he's just an all around genuinely nice guy. I appreciated his candor and his honest and upfront pricing.

    He's added to my go-to list of vendors.

    I would give more stars for 1st Choice Plumbing if it lets me. Our sump pump was broken and our basement started getting water overflow and the carpet was wet. I was suggested to get the sump pump fixed. The adjuster told me the average price for a sump pump replacement is about $180. I called several places to get an appointment ASAP. The first one I called was Ehrhardt Brothers Plumbing, they quoted me $160 for diagnosis and estimate $1800 for sump pump replacement. The second place I called is Cross County Plumbing, no one answered so I left a voice mail. I HAD TO call him back a few hours later asking if he had got my message. Cross County Plumbing replied that they DID get my message but they don't think my sump pump needs replaced since it hasn't been working for 3 years ("If it has not been working then you don't need it", they said). I insisted that it needed fixed due to the water backup/overflow. They RELUCTANTLY gave me an appt for diagnosis ($125) and estimated $800-$1000 for replacement. I then looked around more and got in touch with 1st Choice Plumbing. AND THANK GOD, He replied right away, asking me to take pictures of the sump pump, gave me a quote of $350 for replacement (NO DIAGNOSIS FEES :) ). I could not believe my ears at first. Now I know the other two places was bs with their prices. 1st Choice Plumbing (Mr. Linneer) showed up at my place 20 minutes earlier than the appt time (he was VERY responsive along the way) and he got down to business right away. There was more extra work beside the replacement due to the pump was filled with backup water and debris, rocks, etc. He removed everything, clean, and install a new sump pump. everything was done in 45 minutes or less. He kept his promise and charged me only $350 despite all the extra dirty work. I appreciate him so so much and want to spread the word. WE NEED THIS BUSINESS AROUND.

    Quick, clean, friendly service! We needed our kitchen faucet replaced. Reached out on a Friday and he was there Monday. On time and cleaned up after himself. I highly recommend.

  • *****

    I've used Linneer twice now and both times he's provided quality service and competitive pricing. The first time was to replace an outdoor hose spigot, and most recently he replaced my kitchen faucet, shut off valves, and drain pipe for my kitchen sink. He does great work, is honest, and a great guy. I'd have no hesitations in recommending him for any plumbing needs.

  • *****

    Contacted me and was able to give an accurate quote over the phone after I sent pictures. Came on time and did the work quickly.

  • *****

    Great work! On time, reliable and respectful. They explained to me the problem, options and the best course of action moving forward. My go to guys.

    First Choice plumbing is probably one of the best experience in a company I have ever had. Mr. Laneer is very professional, very knowledgeable about his craft and gave me expert advise about future plumbing and heating repairs to my home. He replaced my sump pump and his workmanship is on point. The most important part is he is a very honest man who did not look to rip me off or overcharge me for work rendered. He went the extra mile to replacing my sump pump with more work then anticipated and still did not charge me for the extra work. I had previously called several other big name companies to replace my pump and was told over the phone from several of these companies first that there will be a inspection charge and the price to actually replace the pump would double the price that First Choice charged me. So I can imagine if I would of let the big company come out to replace my pump and the work that was involved in replacing the pump, it probably would of cost me an arm and a leg. Mr. Laneer and First Choice is my go to Plumbing company forever. Thank you again Mr. Laneer and great work.

    What can I not say? Friendly honest and reliable. On time and explains everything. After being disappointed by a plumber I am grateful to God to have found this company. It was truly a gods send. He was on time and literally fixed all are issues. Buying a house is hard and knowing that people out there are trying to fix problems not just make money is a relief. From the time he showed up he was full of information and helpful. I am sooo happy I could cry. Fixed my toilet and shower. It was a complete joy to use this company and I think everyone should use this service

  • *****

    We are so lucky to have found Linneer! He is extremely knowledgeable, personable, and very fairly priced. He takes the time to explain the problem and tell you what he is doing to repair it. He is an excellent communicator by phone and text, as well as in person. We will not hesitate to use Linneer's services again and will recommend him to others who are looking for a quality plumber.

  • *****

    I was quite satisfied with Linneer of 1st Choice Plumbing LLC. He was timely, knowledgeable and thorough. Got my plumbing issue addressed immediately. He answered my many questions about plumbing concerns as well as other utility issues. Friendly as well. A rare find in the home skills industry. Definitely recommending him to my family and friends.

  • *****

    One of the nicest people you will ever meet in your life, and one of the most honest, if not THE most honest, plumber. He's knowledgeable, smart, and just a good person to talk to about the industry.

    You will not need another plumber ever. I guarantee it.

  • *****

    Linneer is a great guy, honest to a fault, and my experience with 1st Choice Plumbing is a case study of why to use a plumber [a good, honest one] over a handyman. He's a good guy, communicates via phone or text and is reliable.

    We had a dripping faucet/showerhead and I got some quotes from two different handyman services very highly rated in DC, as we wanted to save some money. Both were going to come in and completely replace the shower-tub combo, with new fittings, valves, the whole 9 yards for a few hundred bucks, not including parts. This is how handyman services work - they come out to fix a problem and since they're generalists, they really don't have the ability or knowledge to look at how to fix the problem with the minimum resources.

    Linneer came out, charged a nominal fee for taking things apart and figuring out the solution. He had me take a photo of the backplate and gave me a phone number and url to contact the manufacturer as he was sure they had a lifetime warranty. Sure enough, I filled out an online form, attached some photos and within 10 days, the manufacturer sent along the free replacement valve and other parts, for free!

    Linneer just finished the job, everything works great and our final cost was about 1/4th of the handyman quotes. If you need a drain snaked, or replacing your garbage disposal, sure call a handyman, if you have something more complex, call 1st Choice Plumbing to do it right and often for much less money.

  • *****

    My husband and I had a great experience working with Lineer. We just moved into a house and needed a number of things fixed. Lineer walked us through what each job would take and gave us honest quotes. When he arrived, he was efficient and did high quality work, and the final cost was what we expected. He will be our go-to plumber from now on.

  • *****

    Linneer was excellent. He was regularly in communication and was very reasonably priced. He quickly and accurately identified the issue and fortunately, he was able to resolve it without tearing out walls. It's refreshing to get quality service without having to break the bank. Thank you Linneer!

  • *****

    Linneer is awesome!! He arrived promptly and thoroughly explained the cause/solution for my plumbing issue. He does great work and pays attention to detail. I would highly recommend him!

  • *****

    Linneer helped us replace the old toilet. He arrived on time, finished the work timely, and the prices were fair. I highly recommend 1st Choice Plumbing!

  • *****

    This company is amazing. Our rental home in DC had several broken and leaking pipes and the tenant wanted servicing immediately. We contacted 1st Choice and they responded within minutes and gave us an appointment within 24 hours. The technician came out and fixed everything in one day for an extremely reasonable price - and we've dealt with many plumbing and handy man companies. We'll definitely be using 1st Choice in the future for all of our rental properties and our own home as well.

  • *****

    Not a big company... honest, no games and thorough. I am very pleased with the quality of service rendered and additional advice provided.

  • *****

    1st Choice Plumbing did a great job for us twice, first identifying the source of a leak and second installing a gas water heater. Linneer arrives with a full array of tools required to do the job. I highly recommend him.

  • *****

    Linneer has been my go-to plumber for the last 2 years. I can count on receiving highly qualified and professional service. 1st Choice Plumbing has replaced my pressure relief valve, copper piping and informed me of additional issues he could see after a cursory inspection and more. I learn something about plumbing every time he comes out. Truly friendly, professional, knowledgeable and reasonably priced! 1st Choice Plumbing has earned my trust.

  • *****

    I would highly recommend 1st Choice Plumbing. My husband and I have hired four different plumbers and all them were a disappointment. Linneer was the only plumber who actually fixed it right the first time. If you're looking for a reliable, professional, and knowledgeable plumber Contact Linneer at 1st Choice Plumbing.

  • *****

    Very professional. Arrived on time and took care of a smart valve installation on the main line. I ended up paying a little bit more because of some additional constraints with my piping setup, but it is not his fault. Overall I am very happy with the work.

  • *****

    This gentleman was professional, timely, quick, efficient and very knowledgeable. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this service.

  • *****

    We have used 1st Choice Plumbing exclusively for our plumbing needs the past few years and can't say enough great things about the owner, Linneer. He's so knowledgeable and pleasant and just wonderful to deal with. He's replace a hot water heater at a rental condo I have (that was no small task!) and a hot water heater at my own property in addition to other plumbing fixes. Once you use Linneer's services once you will never want to use the services of another plumber again.

  • *****

    Really nice guy that does really nice work. He came out within a day of my call, arrived right on time and completed the work timely. Prices were fair with no cost increase from original estimate. I finally found my plumber for life!

  • *****

    I had a leak from my third-floor restroom and he correctly identified the source of the leak. Linneer was accommodating, timely, and professional. I would definitely recommend him for any and all of your plumbing needs. I will use him for any future plumbing needs.

  • *****

    Honesty is business is hard to find. Although I didn't have the pleasure to use the service, the owner was honest about the scope of work and referred me to another company that would be more equipped to handle the magnitude of the job I was proposing. Although I can't comment on the work, I can comment on the integrity of the company which is top notch. If I ever have a smaller job, this will be the company I call.

  • *****

    Linnear did a fantastic job with replacing my toilets. The caulking he did around the toilet was a+++. He's also responsive and helpful with any questions you may have with your plumbing issues

  • *****

    Let me just start by saying as a homeowner, one of the things I dread is home repairs. I had a tub that had been leaking for months. The sound of water dripping began to drive me crazy so at that point I was in desperate need of a plumber. Because the Yelp reviews were so highly rated, I chose to go with 1st Choice Plumbing. Great decision!!!! Mr. Linneer Mabry Sr was very professional, courteous, and knowledgeable. His prices are affordable too. I now know who to call when any plumbing issues arise in the future.

  • *****

    I found 1st Choice Plumbing on Yelp because of all the great reviews. I am sure glad I did! We installed a water purification system and Linneer was prompt, professional, and did a great job. I will be using him again and would highly recommend him for any of your plumbing needs.

  • *****

    I needed a new toilet installed and Linneer did the job! He was on time, prompt and professional. His work and knowledge was great. It was wonderful working with him.

  • *****

    I needed plumbing work on a rental property. He was able to do the work on a short notice. His prices were more than reasonable and the quality of work was excellent.

  • *****

    EXCELLENT! Linneer is the best plumber! I have had horror stories in the past, but no longer. I have found the best plumber. Linneer is punctual, professional and very experienced. He explained my plumbing problems, gave me suggestions and quoted a great and reasonable price. He is personable and a great guy! I will recommend him for any plumbing issues.

  • *****

    Absolutely the best! I've called upon him for my plumbing needs for several years and he's consistently professional, on time (some times early), and will take the time to explain what the problem is and the best way to resolved the issue. His prices are reasonable and I would highly recommend him to all of my family and friends. A1 service!! Thanks-a-million!!!

  • *****

    Linneer worked on both my kitchen and bathroom sinks and some of the issues with this old house created a challenge. I am so thoroughly impressed with his professional knowledge and courtesy but most of all his ability to listen to his customer and honor their priorities. The costs were very reasonable, but the trust factor he afforded me was priceless. i highly recommend 1st Choice!

  • *****

    Quick, prompt, professional, and my top priority is I felt Linneer is knowledgeable and honest.
    What a kind, courteous and great gentleman.
    I highly recommend him and his plumbing company. He has a large, beautiful, clean truck that says a lot that he invests in his company and reputation. I am so happy I found a plumber I can trust and trust to be in my home and know how to solve plumbing problems with efficiency and great prices. He made me have confidence in my good choice!

  • *****

    We have used Linneer at 1st choice plumbing on two different occasions. Both times the seevice has been excellent. Linneer has always called as a reminder for an upcoming appointment, gotten to our house on time and has had no problem fixing any plumbing problem thrown at him. He has always been a pleasure to talk to also. We will miss him as we are moving to Colorado, but, i truthfully feel DC is lucky to have a plumber like Linneer

  • *****

    From start to finish, working with this company was easy. We needed plumbing work done prior to tenants moving in and this company was able to schedule us quickly and arrived in a timely manner. Lineer explained everything thoroughly and was very professional. I would definitely use them again and I highly recommend them to others.

  • *****

    Quick, professional, and affordable. I couldn't ask for anything more from a plumber. We had a problem with the water pressure coming out of our kitchen faucet. The owner returned my message from vacation and scheduled an appointment for the following week. The morning of the appointment he called to confirm and showed up exactly on time. The problem turned out to be a valve under the sink which he diagnosed and fixed in less than five minutes for a very, very reasonable price. He also referred me to a sprinkler company for a different issue, because the sprinkler folks would probably be able to do that job cheaper than he could. Really appreciate the professionalism and quick service!

  • *****

    Sooooo I never write reviews, but after the exceptional service I received from Linneer today, I had to do so! My water heater was acting up and I didn't have hot water in my house.The plumber I previously called flaked on me so I had to find someone quickly. This was the first company that popped up on yelp when I searched for "water heater repair" so I called him up. Told him my problem and he said he could come out on Friday. I just started a new job and had to take off today to get this done so taking off again wasn't going to work. I told him that I'm only free today and he said ok he'll be right over. Thirty minutes later he was at my house and 2 hours later he was walking out my door having completed the job! His price was fair, he was extremely nice and very transparent on what needed to be done. What else could you ask for! I have a new toilet that needs to be installed so I'll definitely call him for that. I think I just found my go-to plumber!

  • *****

    Prompt, friendly, courteous, capable, honest, reasonable. Fixed problem without replacement, as I had expected

  • *****

    Ok.. I've never really had much luck with plumbers. I don't know why but it has always been really difficult to find an honest professional. Well, thanks to Yelp problem solved. My wife and I are currently renting a home and needed a plumber bad. We called around a few places and Manier from 1st Choice was incredible. We had a clogged toilet on our first floor and something did not seem right. He quickly diagnosed the issue and said the toilet was barely making a tight connection. Before he arrived I tried to use a plunger and could hear a shush sound at the base of the toilet. The price he gave seemed extremely fare to my wife and I. Unfortunately our landlord did not approve his proposal but I knew it was fare. What really stuck out about this company was how professional and the genuine feeling we felt that Manier really wanted to help. I highly recommend this company. Thanks 1st Choice for your professionalism and care for our family.

  • *****

    Awesome, problem solved! The owner came out when I had just learned that I had water damage in the bathroom. He was very experienced and resolved my concern quickly. He was very good at explaining things and making sure I understood. He also addressed two other unrelated plumbing issues with a great attitude and a sincere desire to help. His prices are very fair and I highly recommend this company. If you want things done honestly and with quality in mind, go here.

  • *****

    Our first experience with Linneer was great. I found this company on Yelp, based on the good comments it had, and I know why. Our garbage disposal was not working. I thought it was broken, I was ready to pay to change it, but Linneer was honest and solved the problem while he could have just told me I needed to change it. He did some other work in the house too, and everything was done professionally. I highly recommend 1st Choice Plumbing.

  • *****

    Will definitely be keeping his number for future plumbing needs. He was super knowledgeable, friendly, and trustworthy. It was nice to find someone in this line of work that I could trust. He did great work and his prices are very reasonable for his quality of service.

  • *****

    After reading the reviews on Yelp, I decided to contact 1st Choice Plumbing. I don't typically write reviews, but I had a great experience with 1st Choice Plumbing that I couldn't help myself, but writing this review. Lineer, the owner, did a great job being punctual and professional. He called 30 min ahead of time to let me know that he was on his way as scheduled. He thoroughly explained the drainage issue in my bathroom. He fixed all of the problems right on time. I strongly recommend 1st Choice Plumbing!

  • *****

    1st Choice Plumbing is wonderful! They responded quickly to my phone message, got here as soon as possible, and took care of the problem in about 20 minutes. Prompt, professional, and very reasonably priced. I would definitely recommend them!

  • *****

    I found this company on yelp when specifically looking for a plumber with a high rating. What I found was not only a high rating in this company, but 2 of my personal friends that had already used this company for service and rated this company with 5 stars! Well I am adding my 5 stars to this company rating as well!

    Linneer Mabry, Sr. showed up on time at my door (actually arrived before I did), assessed what a couple of the problems were, quoted a very reasonable price and got to work. I had to leave a couple of times during the job and left my place in good hands while I was gone with Linneer.

    While working we discussed how I found his company on yelp and he explained how he was introduced to yelp for his business and previous companies he has worked for in the past and why he is now in business for himself. I would call Linneer in a heartbeat should I ever have a plumbing need in the future and would recommend 1st Choice Plumbing to anyone.

    Additionally, Linneer found another problem while working and fixed it and did not say to me later, "that will be an additional $50" that I have heard some vendors will do. Well respected in my eyes for that!

  • *****

    I am leaving this review to show my appreciation and give potential customers the ASSURANCE in knowing that 1st Choice Plumbing's work, professionalism, and customer service is absolutely exceptional! I found this company through Yelp and after reading the many great reviews I decided to call and schedule an appointment for an estimate. Not only do I HIGHLY recommend 1st Choice Plumbing for your household/business plumbing needs but I WILL be using their services again for the remainder of MY plumbing needs. Laneer arrived earlier than the appointment time; He's punctual, very skilled in his profession, respectful, considerate, and personable. Knowing how to interact with your clients in addition to work ethic is a plus to me. It took practically no time to finish the job. My sink is now functional again and I look forward to having him fix 2-3 other issues within my home. I also had minor adjustments done to my sink in the downstairs bathroom at the last minute. Thanks again Laneer! It was a pleasure.....see you sooner than later! -Danielle

    Called out Choice, to see what could be done on my nasty clawfoot tub. They recommended a company in Bowie to have it refinished vs replacing would be extremely costly. I hired them to disconnect the tub, so I could take it out for a complete make over. I'll have them back to hook up the tub once completed. Appreciated the honest work and their recommendation.

  • *****

    Great plumbing service! Friendly staff.
    Had the best plumbing price qoute
    from free-plumbing-quotes.com
    Thanks again! :-)

  • *****

    If they had a rating higher than 5 stars, 1st Choice Plumbing would receive that from me. We had Lanier out today to replace our hot water heater. He had a hot water tank that seems to look and be quite nice with a good warranty - which he brought to us, so it made things very simple. Our hot water heater was a project, to say the least, but Lanier handled every detail beautifully and explained everything to us along the way.

    He is extremely kind, professional, smart and knowledgeable. You could not ask for more. I'm very happy to have discovered him thanks to Yelp reviews. He will be our go-to plumber going forward for all our plumbing needs.

  • *****

    1st Choice Plumbing is amazing! Linneer came as scheduled. Upon his arrival I showed him our old bath tub which was not draining well. I told him that we have an old house built in the early 30's and my concern was the possible damage in the pipes if he will need "to snake it" to clear the clog. He first used a small one but towards the end, he had to use a strong snake to clear up the bad clog. He was very careful though in doing the work. He successfully completed the task. The tub is running well, including the sink. He said both are inter-connected that is why.

    Linneer was knowledgeable and very professional, someone you can easily talk with. There are other plumbing problems that has to be addressed and he was kind enough to discuss and explain to me in layman's terms what has to be done. He actually checked each one of the problem areas, patiently addressing every concern I have.

    I am very impressed with Linneer and recommend him to anyone needing an honest, knowledgeable and competent Plumber. I know that he is the Plumbing Expert we will ask to solve our plumbing problems. The search for a good Plumber is over...we have one in Mr. Linneer Mabrey!

    Thank you Linneer for fixing our clogged bath tub.

    Needed a plumber and found them through Yelp...so many great reviews could not be wrong...and they weren't! On time, professional, courteous, friendly, knowledgeable. A+ all around. Will use them for every future plumbing need! It was a pleasure working with you, Mr. Mabry

  • *****

    I have never written a Yelp review but felt that this occasion warranted one. After 10 days of low water pressure, a constantly running (noisy) sump pump, and THREE specialists coming out, I still had not received a definitive diagnosis. When my plumber flaked multiple times (kept delaying the day to come replace pipes costing me $500 in water bills throughout the delay) I finally called Linneer. It took him about 10 minutes to figure out the problem (not an issue with the pipes--a leaky sump pump drawing on the main water supply). He literally turned a valve and restored everything to normal! Not sure how the other three people missed that part. Turns out that both our electric sump pump and water back up sump pump were faulty so he replaced the main sump pump for us. He never pushed us to do any additional work although we still need to replace a few things eventually. He has a great sense of humor and personality. I also felt that he gave us a fair price. With 25 years of plumbing experience, I will definitely call him again the next time we need plumbing help!

  • *****

    Excellent customer service, and the quality of work was above and beyond what I expected. The job was to replace a kitchen faucet, but ended up including a lot more work, all of which was reasonably priced and done excellently. The only downside is that this company does not handle emergency plumbing issues.

  • *****

    A good plumber is so hard to find! Why is that??? Well, it's basically because they know they have you by the nads and have a skill set you don't. And it's this type of arrogance that gives the plumbing industry a bad rep. Knowing or unknowingly, 1st Choice is trying to change this perception.

    I had some plumbing issues that needed to be resolved so I figured might as well tackle it while the weather's still decent. I contacted them after seeing the van driving by. It may seem silly but the main reason I called was because I liked the way the truck looked. The image a small business projects is important because it sets the tone of how the owner/operator carries themselves. One star for business appearance.

    Mr. Mabry came out when promised and even made a courtesy confirmation phone call beforehand One more star for promptness. He also showed up looking very clean and professional. Another star for appearance. He definitely knows how to add the "special touch" to the service he provides and demonstrates that he knows what he's doing. This is a nice rarity in the plumbing business.

    Throughout the process he explained what he was doing and did a final walk-through to ensure everything was completed as promised. Fourth star!

    Overall, the final cost ($700) wasn't awesome when you break it down because the amount of time spent on the job compared to cost of materials resulted in an hourly rate of three figures. But the man's gotta eat so I can't be mad at that. Plus, the industry standard for plumbers is to get you on labor, not really the parts.

    In the end, you get what you pay for. If you want someone who works quickly and precisely, will treat your home with respect, come in with a fair price, explain their process and do the work they promise, then it really doesn't get better than this guy.

  • *****

    I called 1st Choice Plumbing based on all of the favorable reviews I read on this site. He came out the next day and addressed all of my needs including a leaky faucet I asked him about while he was there to fix the other items. Linneer is extremely attentive and professional! His prices are very reasonable. I have used some of the big name plumbers who constantly advertise and they did not do as good of a job as Linneer did. He has become my plumber of choice and I highly recommend him!!!

  • *****

    Snaked a line that two other plumbers gave up on. Very good, prompt service.

  • *****

    Fast and knowledgeable service. Definitely recommend.

  • *****

    If you need an honest, reliable, skilled plumber LOOK NO FURTHER!

    I have used 1st Choice Plumbing for three plumbing needs in the past year.  Exceptional service was given each time with reasonable prices.   I've been 100% satisfied with the way the work looked once the job was finished and how parts/materials provided have performed overtime.

  • *****

    Reliable, responsible and knowledgeable.  It's really a relief to know a plumber of this caliber can work on my properties.

  • *****

    Lineer was great. He came to fix our spout to our tub which needed to be replaced because the old one allowed water to leak steadily from the shower-head while it was also coming out of the spout. When he removed it he found that it had been shoddily installed and the pipe was flimsy plastic instead of copper, so it would be hard to fix well without replacing the pipe, which we couldn't afford at this time. He did his best, but a week later it was loose, so he came back out for free and fixed it again, this time adding a lot of caulk to get it to stay-put while we save the money to get the pipe replaced. While he was here for that second visit, he noticed that the sink in the bathroom didn't drain well, and he made an adjustment to the stopper which didn't lift high enough before, causing slow drainage. He made that fix without us asking, and it works great now. The spout is also working well, he hasn't needed to return, and we hope to save the money within several months to have the pipe totally replaced. We trust him to do the work. He's friendly, reliable, professional, and does great work and guarantees his work and parts for a year. The price is also reasonable. Thanks Lineer, I'd recommend you to anyone.

  • *****

    I really wish I could give them 6 stars! 1st Choice completed work on a severely stopped main line that was causing unmentionable havoc in my mother's basement.

    When they arrived, they looked at the problem and gave me a helpful lesson in the various pipes and lines in the house, determined a course of action, and gave me an amazingly fair quote on the price.

    The performance and work was excellent...top-notch. The price was great! I highly recommend this company. My mother vows to only use them at her house from now on, and I did the same for my house.

  • *****

    We've used Lineer several times now, over the past few years.  He's been courteous, helpful, knowledgable, prompt, and efficient.  Everything he's fixed has stayed fixed.

  • *****

    prompt and professional, it was hard to find a plumber in Bowie that is not part of a "chain". I wanted the shower roughin valve changed,as part of an upgrade and he did it with no fuss . Will definitely use him again for future jobs

  • *****

    Excellent service, knowledgeable, personable and highly recommended.

    We were hearing water running. After checking Yelp and seeing other reviews, I decided to call 1st Choice Plumbing. Due to the holidays, I called back the 5th. The call was answered in person by Linneer.  When the appointment time came, he called half an hour ahead and arrived right on time.  This was January 7th and the weather was not good.

    Linneer recognized the running water as having to do with our reverse osmosis filtered water system (he was accurate). He checked a toilet that had been running (I had to shut it off) and explained that a new toilet was needed due to its antiquity. It used too much water, wasn't holding water in the tank and trying to fix it would not be efficient. Since two plumbers before him had tried, I believed him.

    The next morning he arrived right on time.  The toilet was replaced, he took his time explaining that older houses (older pipes) needed care. He worked effectively with an uneven floor and an old toilet set up (the opening into the sewer drain) that was originally installed without centering it.

    The new toilet works beautifully.

    I'll be calling him for the other two toilets. Linneer said to get one thing done at a time and be gentle with the house.  

    I seldom write reviews, but the other Yelp reviewers helped me find someone who is exceptionally competent. I hope this review does the same for others.

  • *****

    One of the best experiences I've ever had with anyone in the service industry. Mr Mabry arrived on time, worked quickly and was reasonably priced. He explained all aspects of the work (toilet repair). And he was friendly and has a sense of humor. Qualities I find important.

  • *****

    Absolutely should be your first choice. With a 60 year old house we had a lot of small issues we had been putting off for the four years we had lived here. Had quotes over the years from the big guys but ask seemed high so kept delaying. Well this morning we knocked out half the list at reasonable price after he helped us prioritize. Highly recommend for ALL plumbing issues.

  • *****

    1st Choice Plumbing is a first class plumbing company.  The service was excellent and the prices were fair.  Highly recommend this company for your plumbing needs.

    Will definitely use 1st Choice Plumbing again!!!

  • *****

    It was a pleasure!

    Who loves plumbing issues? Not me, and I don't have to because I take all my plumbing woes to 1st Choice. The owner, Lineer, does his job in such a professional manner that it is almost a pleasure to deal with the plumbing issues. I feel confident that I'm not getting ripped off and that I'm dealing with someone who wants to help you get back to your life. He's not trying to make the job bigger than it already is. He is honest and takes his job seriously. He is my go-to-guy for plumbing needs, especially this last time when I was getting my inspection to-do list completed for my house's picky buyers.

    Call 1st Choice Plumbing for all of your plumbing needs without hesitation.

  • *****

    I have nothing but great things to say about this company. Being a new home owner in an unfamiliar area I can't emphasize how hard it is to build a network of trusted services for all the random things you need to get done around the house.

    We called Linneer based on reviews here and were not disappointed. We used him in August for a sewage line blockage that ended up having the involve the county. Linneer was extremely helpful, accurate and honest about pricing and what actually needed to be done. He walked us through anything he was going to do, gave us pointers on how to fix other unrelated plumbing issues instead of trying to sell us something, and his advice to get the county involved ultimately saved us $550.

    As I'm writing this we are dealing with a burst (frozen) pipe in the basement, and we have already scheduled with 1st Choice again.

  • *****

    OMG. 1st Choice is Excellent. I found him on Yelp and based on the reviews and his price we hired him. I have to say he is EXCELLENT. EXCELLENT. EXCELLENT. If I could give him more stars than 5 I would. If you need a plumber, 1st Choice should be your FIRST CHOICE!!

  • *****

    I had a minor plumbing leak. Other companies wanted to charge me an outlandish amount of money just to come out and tell me how much they would charge me to fix it. Linneer came out the following day and fixed my minor leak for less than what the other companies wanted to charge me just to come give me a price quote. Workmanship and customer service was excellent! I highly recommend this company! Linneer is a true professional.

  • *****

    This guy couldn't be a nicer human being. He will take care of you and give you a fair price. I know exactly who I'm calling for all future plumbing services.

  • *****

    I left a voice mail on a Sunday evening for service Monday.  Mr. Mabry, Sr. called at 8AM on Monday and said he could come and take a look at our issue at 9:30AM.  He also gave a courtesy call 30 mins prior to arriving.  He spotted the leak right away and gave me two options.  The first option was cheaper and he even came up with an ad-hoc pole to see if it would work, but unfortunately it did not and we had to go with option 2 - removing our bathroom tiles and drywall. He took his time removing 2 of the 3 tiles, trying to salvage them for reuse later.  After the tiles were removed he resolved the leak by replacing the spit copper pipe with a pvc one. His price was very reasonable for the amount of time and care he took to fix the leakage.

    Mr. Mabry, Sr. was very professional and courteous throughout the repair job.  His expertise and knowledge on plumbing was amazing.  I would highly recommend him to other Yelp folks.  I will be using him for future plumbing issues.

    Lived in my house for 30 years and finally found a great plumber who stands behind hi work.

    Have had second rate plumbers that caused me thousands in repairs because of a drain backup that was supposed to have been fixed.

    1st Choice came out and cleared the drain completely instead of just partially.

    You won't go wrong with Mr. Mabry, Sr. And First Choice

  • *****

    Best plumber in the area!! Hands down! Hes been to my house a few times now and the best plumber is an understatement. Very hard worker, smart, convienent, understanding, and he stays til your happy and the job is complete. Just not enough good things I can say about this plumber. All I can say is, if you want a plumber, you want the job done right and at a great price, CALL HIM! Dont hesitate!! Pickup the phone and dial him now.

  • *****

    Great service as described by other reviewers. Showed up on time and fixed the problem. He was easy to schedule with as well which was surprising given the 5-star rating.

    He even gave a 30-minute call prior to arriving which was a nice heads up.

    $25.00 standard charge for coming out which is applied to any repairs, etc.

  • *****

    I was in need of a plumber due to the fact that I noticed a wet/soft spot was developing on my ceiling in my kitchen which is located right under the bathroom in the master bedroom.  I googled plumbers and came across 1st Choice Plumbing on Yelp.  They had 19 reviews and everyone gave 5 stars, I knew this was the company for me.  I called Linneer on Monday told him my problem, he explained a couple of situations that could be causing the leak. I scheduled an appointment for him to come out on Wednesday.  The fee for him to come out was only $25.  He arrived on time (actually early) and was ready to work.  He evaluated the situation and was able to see what was causing the leak.  He did have to cut the ceiling to repair the pipe.  He was very neat and tidy.  He covered the kitchen counters and floor with drop cloths for cleaning up will be simple.......5 STARS IS NOT ENOUGH for the great customer service, work and pricing that Linneer offers.

  • *****

    I checked Yelp for a plumbing company and decided on 1st Choice Plumbing based on their reviews. While I was able to have a friend unclog the toilet, I will call Linneer if I have any other plumbing problem.
    I called past 10 pm, left a message, and the next morning at 8:15-ish, I received a call from Linneer. I told him I managed to fix it and he was very courteous, saying he was happy I managed to save some money.  Though I can't directly address his actual work, his ethic and courteousness speak volumes, particularly when paired with all the other reviews of Linneer's excellent work.

  • *****

    I had a problem with 2 toilets in my house not flushing properly.  I searched for a plumber in Yelp.  After seeing all great reviews for Linneer, I decided to call him.  I called him on Veteran's day, which I  did not know whether I would be charged more or even receive service.  Linneer told me he was honoring that day and is usually off.  Additionally, his truck was in the shop.  He told me he would call me back if he got his truck that day.  He actually called me a couple of hours later to inform me that he got his truck back and he was coming over.  (even on his day off).  When he came, my toilets ended up working.  He gave me some tips about the plumbing in the house and did not charge me at all.  I really appreciated his honest dealings and will definitely use him again!

  • *****

    Most times when I call a contractor, plumber or electrician they want to charge about $100 just to show up and diagnose a problem.  I called Linneer after reading his Yelp reviews and he said $25.  So far so good.  Then he says, if you need any work done I'll put that $25 toward the work.  Nice!  He showed up, we looked at the dishwasher first because hat was my main concern.  But then since he was here I asked can we check out the slow sinks in the two bathrooms, the showers and tubs, the hot water heater, etc...  He checked everything out, stopped a very minor leak on the hot water heater, made some adjustments, when all was said and done he said I just needed some new supply lines under the sink.  He said it's simple, you could probably do it yourself.  I said come on man you showed up here, gave me all your knowledge for free, fixed a few things, i want you to at least make a tank of gas of of me.  He charged me $50 and the $25 for the initial visit was credited toward that.  I wish I could clone him and send the clones to school for other home services because it is rare to find someone so nice, honest, accessible, friendly, etc..   I hope he reads these so he knows how thankful i am even though i also told him in person.

  • *****

    The Yelp reviews were a big decision in me choosing 1st Choice.  I am so glad that I did.  Mr. Mabry restored my water after it had been off for 13 days.  (That's a long story about frozen pipes and a missed diagnosis from WSSC.)  He is very, very professional and highly skilled.  Please look no further for a plumber, the company name says it all.  This should be your 1st Choice.

  • *****

    Called Linneer at about 8 on a Friday to unclog the kitchen drain line.  Very polite and friendly on the phone.  He said he had a couple people in front of me but that he would almost definitely be able to get out to my place that afternoon.  Sure enough he called me at around 2pm to say he was on his way.  Showed up, took care of the clog, talked about steps I could take to help prevent future clogs and make clogs easier to reach if it happened again.  Super-nice guy.  Good work and cleaned up too.  Fair price for the work and had the kitchen sink back in operation for the weekend!

  • *****

    Linneer is THE BEST.   After having been through three previous plumbers to try to handle our myriad of issues, I was beyond discouraged.  Talking to Linneer for 10 minutes on the phone in advance of our appointment-- and I was already feeling better about our situation. Linneer communicated with me throughout the process, was open and honest about what scenarios could play out, and walked me through exactly what the issues were when he located them.  He was beyond professional and a delight to work with. We will absolutely be utilizing Linneer for any future plumbing needs.

  • *****

    I found Linneer  through yelp--and I trust all of my fellow yelpers so I had to give him a call!  Our kitchen sink has been slowed to drain since our yearly massive halloween party.  We tried an electrical snake 1 week into the blockage and it just made it worst... we had to succumb to the plumbing gods and get professional help on it.  I called Linneer 9 am on Saturday, and I received a return call about 1 hr later.  He said he was booked for the entire day and doesn't work on Sundays--Shucks.. cuz at this point, there was no more drainage--- i was dumping buckets out of the sink!  Linneer could sense my pain through the phone I believe, so he said he'll come on Sunday at 7 am, and give us a ring before hand.  He does free estimates, but since it was a Sunday run, he'll charge $200 for a cleaning fee.  Also, if he couldn't fix it, he wouldn't charge.. and the cherry on top, 30 days guarantee for the work! Sounds like a win-win for me, we had a dinner party (yes, sans plumbing), and lets say we were in no condition to greet Linneer at 7 am! Instead of making us feel awkward, he just says "looks like you guys had fun last night"--staring at all the dozens of bottles scattered around the kitchen counter.  At that point, we knew he was our man!  He fixed our sink, and changed all the necessary parts.  1.5 hr later, we have plumbing again!  I would highly suggest him for all your plumbing needs-- you can't complain with free estimates and a Sunday call, and.. no judgements :-).

  • *****

    If you're looking for an honest and highly experienced plumber, 1st Choice Plumbing is who you should call.  Linneer has been been caring for my plumbing needs for many years now and he always diagnosis the problem accurately and honestly.  He corrects the problem right, the first time, and I have never had to call him back to fix the same issue twice.  His prices are extremely competitive and he is always such a pleasure to work with.  He is always on time for appointments and in most cases is ahead of schedule.  I'm so glad I have a plumber I can depend on.  Thanks Linneer!

  • *****

    Linneer came out to our home the same day we called and gave an estimate on a tricky water heater extraction and install. We appreciated his candor about possible complications and costs. We hired him to do the job and couldn't be more pleased.  He carried through on all of his promises and the work was done as promised and within budget despite the difficulty of our particular job! Everything was done quickly and professionally.  I definitely recommend Linneer and 1st Choice Plumbing!

  • *****

    Linneer came in and got the job done with no hassle or drama. I called him 4pm the day before and made an appointment for 8am the next morning...he was at my house by 7:30am ready. I have had two other people that came in telling me they had to rip through my walls, order parts and cost me a lot of money. He came me had the parts in his lovely truck and got the job done in an hour and half. He also gave me recommendations to avoid major issues later but was not pressuring me or scaring me to get it done right away. Overall he was great.

  • *****

    Found Linneer on Yelp (went with him because of all the good reviews) and let me say, the other reviewers aren't lying. He was quick, professional, and very straightforward about what was needed to fix our tub. He even installed the new toilet seat on our toilet for free since we were currently in the process of doing so when he showed up. I highly recommend 1st Choice Plumbing to anyone in the area.

  • *****

    The reviews are definitely true. Had a leak in our main floor that was coming from the upstairs bathroom. Leneer was able to quickly diagnose the problem and provided me with education about our plumbing system. As a added bonus, he was able to fix the low pressure shower downstairs. Would definitely recommend his services!

  • *****

    Raise your hand if you can't wait to drop an unexpected G or two on a water heater because yours is about to burst and flood your first floor....

    What? No takers? Didn't think so.

    Home repairs suck.  Unexpected home repairs suck even more. You know what doesn't suck? 1st Choice Plumbing!  Linneer Mabry diagnosed the problem and fixed it within 24 hours and it would have been sooner if we didn't make him wait.  His professionalism and attention to detail was great and his cost was definitely reasonable! He even checked our toilets and re-secured them (we recently put in tiling so they were a bit off level).

    I don't know much about these things.  I didn't become a homeowner until I recently got married and moved into my husband's home. Spending money on things that I can't wear, eat, drive, fly on, or decorate with just seems wrong.  After all, those are the FUN things in life.  However, being a homeowner means you have to take care of the not-so fun things too, I am learning.  In that case, I am glad that I have Linneer and 1st Choice Plumbing - fair, affordable, and make the unexpected a little bit more bearable.

    Linneer at 1st Choice Plumbing gets five stars in my book and I definitely recommend him for your plumbing needs.
    We had a drain issue in our home that turned out to be a blocked sewer line between floors. After spending too much time trying to fix the problem ourselves (lesson 1: pouring bleach down all your blocked drains just makes you and your house smell like bleach, lesson 2: do not attempt to remove a toilet unless you know what you are doing) and making it worse - water started coming through out living room ceiling! - I did a quick Yelp search and called the only plumber that had good ratings and was still open at around 8 p.m. on a Sunday night. Note: we had a similar issue only a few months ago and Roto Rooter had fixed it that time - since it was the same problem we were suspicious and not looking forward to spending that kind of money again..
    Linneer was on time (early actually), very polite, very thorough - he ended up having to snake about 60 feet through our house - and fixed our problem in a few hours. He was very communicative about the issues and even gave us some advice to ensure we didn't have the same problem again (something Roto Rooter definitely didn't do). He had to remove two toilets and it took many hours, but by the time he left, everything was neat and clean and tidy - also something we didn't experience with Roto Rooter, who banged up our walls.  The most important thing is, he fixed our plumbing!  It wasn't cheap - but that is because our problem wasn't cheap, Not because he was particularly expensive. I believe we got a very good value for money and I will be definitely be calling Linneer in the future if we ever have any more issues.

  • *****

    We were at our wits end after a plumbing problem that we thought had been fixed began leaking. We contacted  Linneer after reading his reviews on Yelp and I'm so glad we did. He made an appointment to come look at our problem the day after we contacted him. He arrived right on time (early in fact), assessed the problem and was able to fix it the same day for an incredibly reasonable price. He was done and cleaned up in no time. The following week we noticed that the leak had returned and not only did Linneer come to the house the same day, he fixed it for free because he guarantees his work! It's now been a week and the work is leak free and looks great. We will never go to another plumber!

  • *****

    1st Choice Plumbing is hands down the best plumbing service I have encountered. Washington gas informed me that I had a gas leak, and Linneer promptly diagnose the issue and found the actual problem was a gas build up from the regulator valve and not from a faulty pipe that wash gas had indicated. He clearly explained the issue,  and I must say impressed with his patience because I must have asked him a thousand questions.

    I highly recommend 1st Choice and will definitely use them for my next plumbing needs.

  • *****

    I was in a serious pickle when I found out I had an issue with my main sewer line at home. Having come from owning condos most of my life, and now being in a house with plumbing drama, I felt lost in the world of plumbing I had a plumber come in, via Home Warranty Service, and diagnose the job, but then he pawned me onto another plumber. He recommended that I use a snake with a camera, which he did not have. His buddy-plumber did, but his buddy-plumber was also in the business of pricing me out of my budget. Highway robbery

    Not trusting anyone, I did a quick search and found 1st Choice Plumbing and Yelped them and found 1st Choice Plumbing to be the best choice I made. Linneer came that same evening b/c I had to go out of town the next morning, and he handled the job beautifully. He took great care to lug his equipment and navigate the narrow places found in my home; he was hygienic in handling everything; and he found the problem that caused the stoppage. He is extremely customer service oriented and thorough.

    A great pleasure to have met Linneer, and I hope this review helps anyone looking for an honest plumber who is highly skilled at what he does.

  • *****

    This guy is very professional, knowledgeable, and reasonably priced. Came out right away when we had an emergency. If you're ever in need of a plumber, use this guy!!

  • *****

    I found this company through their great reviews and I can verify that they're accurate.

    Linneer just left my house and I know that I'll only be using his company for my plumbing needs in the future.

    He's pleasant and personable, the pricing was reasonable, and he honestly explained what was going on with my plumbing problems as well as best options. He was on time and performed his work quickly.

    Great expertise and great customer service. It's a pleasure to do business with companies like that.
