Local MaidPro and FlyFoe Owners Expand into Handyman and Senior Home Services with TruBlue Total House Care

Phil Sargent and Nicole Hickman have been serving the community through their MaidPro and FlyFoe franchises for more than a decade, but they’ve long had the same issue – clients need help with home repairs and they didn’t have a trustworthy referral partner. Now they are looking forward to filling that need with their new full-service home maintenance company just reopened for business in late July.

“Finding responsive, reliable, background-checked, insured and trustworthy companies in the home services industry can sometimes be challenging. We are looking forward to bringing that level of professionalism and quality to TruBlue and to our community,” Sargent said.

Clients looking for dependable, high-quality, customizable services can hire TruBlue for handyman repairs, yard work, seasonal services and minor home renovations. TruBlue also does Senior Home Safety Assessments, performs age-friendly renovations and offers House Care Plus, a regular service program that can help seniors and busy families enjoy the comforts and convenience of owning a home without worrying about the maintenance hassles.


Sargent and Hickman own and operate 15 Maid Pro locations and are franchisees with FlyFoe, a mosquito and tick control franchise. Sargent, a life-long entrepreneur, is also a founding member of MaidPro Cares©, the company’s non-profit arm that supports orphanages across the country, and a supporter of the Beagle Freedom Project. Hickman has a background in franchise operations and, before joining Sargent, ran a suite of hair salons.

TruBlue of Monmouth County works with clients in Atlantic Highlands, Belford, Eatontown, Fair Haven, Fort Monmouth, Highlands, Holmdel, Leonardo, Lincroft, Little Silver, Long Branch, Monmouth Beach, Oceanport, Port Monmouth, Red Bank, Rumson, Shrewsbury and West Long Branch.
