Normal Search the List category would be Handymen, though in normal drywall or plaster easy to DIY (or get a friend who has done it to help teach you how - about a 2 minute job) with picture hangers you just nail in (put a piece of tape to nail through in plaster to minimize chipping, then remove the tape from around the nail). Google Amazon for picture hangers for various types depending on whether using a sawtooth type hanger on the frame or a wire - commonly safe for about 10-15 pounds for lightweight hangers, about 40# for heavy duty, special measures or multiple hangers with wire hanger on frame needed if over 40#.

In concrete requires a carbide bit and concrete insert (light picture) or insert (heavy one) and should use a detector to check for pipes, electrical, rebar - so a contractor may be needed for that.

And of course if renting check on contract limitations on wall hangings. Light duty hanger only makes about a 1/16" nail hole so easy to patch at moveout, heavy-duty or concrete ones more like 1/4-1/2" hole so more of a repair issue.
