Meet The Team
Anastasia has been with Sterling Services since the beginning and she is ruler of the office. When you call in Anastasia is often the person you will speak with. She is the “Mistress of the Morning” for all of our early morning callers. The technicians can always depend on Anastasia to keep them on schedule. When she is not knee deep in invoices, she is proudly defending her Four Square Mayorship and has a passion for the overall company growth. When asked what she likes most about working for Sterling Services she replied “The nice view from my office”. Born in Colorado Springs, Colorado one of Anastasia’s favorite childhood memories was her trip to DisneyWorld. Anastasia loves to travel and hopes one day to go to the Bahamas. Some of her other hobbies are Cabin hunting up North and Cheering on her daughter at Dance Competitions.

In Five years from now Anastasia sees herself retired and sitting on the front porch of her future cabin up North. That is if Joel will let her!

JMike joined us midway through 2017 and very quickly became a huge contributor to a great year in business. He is extremely versatile, able to perform a top notch installation to completion; then shift into a mode of running service calls at a high level as well. He is fun to be around and has a great sense of humor, yet serious about being a high achiever at the same time. I am anxious to watch his growth in the company for many years to come!
A/C Technician / Technician Development
Bill grew up in both Illinois and here in Arizona and has fond memories of climbing his grandparents apple trees. He is married and has a daughter, who he hopes to help accomplish all she wishes to. His bucket list item is to fly in a wing-suit and mostly wants to hunt and fish when he retires. Immediate interests and hobbies are motorcycles, guitars, German Shepherds, hunting and fishing and the fictional character he associates himself with is Spiderman. (We’ve seen him in attics and this is pretty accurate!) Bill wants to be traveling 10 years from now and says he enjoys working with his customers and coworkers to overcome challenges and provide exceptional customer service. Bill is most amused when when one of the guys says “ok, so…” and others laugh and respond, “he just said Queso”. (It’s a silly bunch at times).

Bill was a great addition to our team towards the end of 2015. He is skilled in various areas and now fills a number of roles within the Company. Bill is serious about great customer service and operates with the highest integrity. For these reasons he is now serving in a Technician Development role for the Company as well. I may be particularly fond of Bill partly because I had the pleasure of working with Bill’s father for several years and I now have the pleasure of having Bill on board. I am looking forward to watching and being part of Bill’s success for years to come!

I am looking forward to working with Johnny for many years in the Company.

Rik is a very smart guy. Here’s how we know: within the first month of joining us, Rik took it upon himself to smoke pork and bring it to one of our service meetings for a huge BBQ breakfast. Needless to say, Rik very quickly became popular with the other guys! I particularly like Rik because he will tackle anything. He has an unquenchable desire to learn new things and wants to learn EVERYTHING. He is the first to try new things and I admire his tenacity in tackling problems both big and small.

Don came in quickly became a highly respected leader due to his professionalism and eagerness to see the plumbing team succeed. Don is one of those people who gets along with anyone and everyone and is just a pleasant person with a kind demeanor that wears off on others. Needless to say, we have found him to be a fine addition to our company culture in addition to the technical expertise he brings.

Well, customers definitely like Jeff and I like Jeff! It’s tough to find the right personnel fit for a business when you have high standards, so when Jeff came aboard, we knew right away we had the right guy to bolster our plumbing staff. Jeff’s customer service is top notch, he works great with everyone around him and is the consummate team player.

Michael is the key figure of our Plumbing operation. He can happily run service calls all day long at a very high level of customer satisfaction, and the next day accomplish a large project just as efficiently. Michael always has the customer’s best interest in mind and takes pride in everything he does for the customer and the company. I have come to rely on him heavily in helping to grow and manage the Plumbing department. He is truly a key component in the success of our plumbing operation and I have enjoyed watching him grow into greater roles in the business.

Jessie does it with a great attitude and is always open minded to improving and finding better ways of doing things. Since we pride ourselves in doing the best installation around, Jessie is obviously an important component in being able to claim that!

Amy’s title just reads “Business Development” mostly because I could not fit everything on a business card unless it was the size of a billboard. Residential Sales, Commercial Sales, Marketing efforts and events, Installation inventory and management, Quality Control checks, some more of this, some more of that… Amy has a long list of experience in many different areas of our industry, so we try to utilize all of it! We are very fortunate to not only have someone this well rounded, but someone who is willing to tackle just about anything!
