I have known and worked with Chris for many years in my capacity as Property Manager for Maus Warwick Matthews & Company.  Chris is professional, skilled, courteous, reliable and trustworthy.  I can recommend him and his Company without reservation.

Courteous and reliable!


Helpful to nonprofit organizations!

        As a Wilmington attorney, I have successfully worked with Chris for over ten years to secure and protect residential and commercial properties. Chris is always professional and reliable.  He responds quickly and shows respect for all of the parties involved and also for the property involved. His costs are reasonable and he will follow through to make sure he does the job right.  For example, Chris makes sure that all of the locks are secure, including any outbuildings or storage sites.  He is also able to open any safes that are located on a property.

I strongly recommend Chris and his company for outstanding locksmith services done reasonably and professionally.

        Had a former guest leave without leaving the key, so we felt it a good idea to rekey all the locks.  Sent requests for quotes to several (including Elkins) and heard back from two, but when I called both of them, Elkins told me they could have someone out the same day.  

He arrived within two hours and within another hour had removed the old cylinders on all outer doors (3 doors with two locks each), then replaced them shortly after that.  Great service and a VERY reasonable fee and we once again have secure locks.

I highly recommend these folks, especially for rush jobs.
