Happy Holidays From SERVPRO of N.Vista/San Marcos
With Thanksgiving just passing and Christmas right around the corner we are in the thick of the Holiday season here at SERVPRO of North Vista/San Marcos. It also signals the end of the year for 2017. We want to take a moment and reflect on the year we have had. Some people have come, some people have gone, and some people have even come back. Through it all our team is stronger than it was in the beginning of the year and we are very thankful and appreciative of all of the effort that our team has put in to making this a successful year for us. We have been able to help thousands of customers and received somewhere around 50 fivestar reviews online from some of them. We took extreme pride in the services we provided for 2017 and it certainly shows. We are very excited to see what 2018 has in store for us.
Happy Holidays San Diego

Our 2017 Group Photo
Today was a happy and sad day for SERVPRO of N.Vista/San Marcos. We held our monthyly all hands meeting, like we do every month. However one of the topics covered in the meeting today was announcing to everyone that after 10 years of service, Fernanada Robinson is leaving us. Fernanada is one of the longest standing employees our franchise has. She believes she can remember a time when there were only eight employees total, including her. Boy how things have changed over the past 10 years. It certainly shows, as we also took, our annual group photo, which is included below. We had to be sure to have Fernanada in it. Our franchise is now somewhere around 60 + total employees.
You will be missed Fernanada. Thank you for everything.
A Shout Out To Our Leader!
The attached picture is Joe all suited up on Easter Sunday. On a holiday, he was out there in the heat, crawling under a house, to help a customer.
This blog is dedicated to our fearless leader, our franchise's founding father, Jose Araya or just Joe, as everyone calls him.
Joe has been in the restoration industry for over 30 years! In 1991 he started a company called G.I Joe Carpet Cleaning. That business thrived and eventually lead him to owning and operating our N.Vista/San Marcos Franchise. Everything our franchise is today is because of Joe.
Joe spoke at our meeting earlier this week and told stories of growing up very poor in Costa Rica. He would plant seeds for banana plants and watch them grow so he could sell them while the other kids spent all day playing. It seems he has always had a mind for business and always been a hard worker.
Joe's spirit shines through everyday at our franchise. Every positive Yelp review we receive, and we receive a lot, Joe's spirit helped cause that. Every customer who is blown away by our high level of professionalism, that is Joe's work ethic & pride showing in a job well done.
Joe set the standard for our franchise and we want him to know we appreciate it. We take our reputation and his very serious. We won't let you down Joe.
Thank you Joe!
