Anastasia

Office Manager

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. One thing you may not know about Anastasia is she almost joined the Air Force before she moved to Arizona. 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!

Anastasia is queen of the office. This all started when I became too busy with customers in the field and could no longer answer all of the calls and get work done at the at the same time. As the business grew, so did her involvement and today, the business could not exist without her. Whether she is investigating the disappearance of paper clips, coaxing a service tech into doing “just one more” service call, answering odd calls at all hours, or just trying to figure out where all my missing receipts are, she’s kind of like everybody’s mom.

Kindra grew up in Mesa and has 4 children. Her favorite memory from her childhood was playing in the orchards. When we asked Kindra what she enjoys most about Sterling services is she answered: “the Staff and the hours”. Some of Kindra’s hobbies are swimming, plays and shopping. One thing you may not know about Kindra is that she is a Coupon Freak! In 10 years Kindra sees herself taking a trip to the Bahamas. One day she would like to pay off her house and take a hot air balloon ride over Sedona. Kindra tells us that when she retires she would like to do nothing but sit around her pool and get a tan.

Kindra came aboard as the company grew and Anastasia needed more help in the office. That was about four years ago and she is now the primary Dispatcher and Scheduler. Those are some pretty big responsibilities! Kindra has a great working relationship with the field technicians as well as keeping our customer’s best interests in mind and we are happy to have her as such an important part of our team.

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.

Amy lists interests as Home Improvement projects and one thing people don’t know abut her is that she loves a good wet cotton ball fight. Bucket list items are learning to weld and shooting a bow and arrow on horseback and her key to success is to never stop moving and improving.

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.

Gabe Allen

Plumbing Technician

Gabe grew up in Yakima, Washington and recalls playing football in the snow. He is here with us now with his son (but no pets!) Gabe is obviously dedicated to his craft since his lists “Plumbing” under Hobbies / Interests. His bucket list item is simply to retire and eat tacos and drink margaritas in Mexico. When asked about what he most likes about working at Sterling Services, Gabe says it’s the great customers we work for. An amusing workplace story is when Gabe had to go underneath a mobile home porch, only to have the gate swing shut and latch behind him. Fortunately he had his phone to call the office, who then phoned the customer and kindly asked if they could let our plumber out from under the house! Although it bit embarrassing at the time, we certainly laugh about it now.  

MUSIC: Country

MOVIE: Miracle

SPORTS TEAM: Seattle Seahawks

BOOK: The Firm

FOOD: Pizza

SPORT: Football

Gabe came to us with high expectations due to his vast plumbing experience and great track record. He is extremely versatile in tackling a wide range of plumbing projects from a quick minor repair to large and complex projects. Better yet, customers love Gabe and his large number of positive reviews certainly reflect that. There are just “plumbers” and then there are true “plumbing professionals”. Gabe is definitely in the category of professional technician who we continue to be thrilled to have on our team.

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.

His interests are fishing, camping, BBQ as well as stay-cations with the family. In fact, Rik lists “Enjoy my Family” as what he wants to do when he retires. His bucket list items are Deep Sea Fishing and Salmon Fishing in Alaska. Rik’s key to success is working hard and treating people right.

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.

Ricky Olivarez

HVAC Technician

Ricky has a wife and 3 children, along with a dog named Blue. He grew up locally here in Mesa and enjoys fishing, sports and video games. Ricky is the youngest of 6 kids and wants to travel when he retires. He lists a bucket list item as going deep sea fishing. Ricky’s key to success? He says it’s having a constant urge to learn more and having manners. What Ricky likes most about working at Sterling Services is “the atmosphere and the employees”. When asked about an amusing workplace story, he talks about the customer that INSISTED that Ricky sit in his new Mustang a rev the engine. 

  • Music: Rock, Rap and Country
  • Movie/TV: Once Upon a Time in                          America
  • Food: Ribs
  • Book: Soldier Boys
  • Sport: Football
  • Sports Team: Arizona Cardinals

I noticed Ricky listed his urge to always learn as one of his keys to success. I definitely see this trait in him just about every day. Not only does he want to tackle unique problems, I see the satisfaction he gets out of solving a tough problem or learning a new type of equipment. The fact that his values are in line perfectly with the Company core values makes Ricky a great fit. His residential experience and customer service skills are top notch and now he’s learner the commercial side of the business as well, which will make him a great long term part of the service department.

Wrenchie

Mascot

Wrenchie has been with us since about 2010. You’ll find Wrenchie somewhere on each one of our vehicles. He is very versatile and his skills involve the use of a tape measure, screwdriver, toolbox, clipboard, thermometer, pipewrench, drill, and more. On one truck, he’s even wearing a cape!
  • Music: The Star Spangled Banner
  • Movie/TV: Fix-it type shows (and shark week)
  • Food: He eats anything!
  • Book: Any repair manual
  • Sport: Bowling with parts
Wrenchie is more of a mascot than an actual employee. He is a repairman type of figure that I came across a few years ago that we used in a print advertisement. Wrenchie’s big breakthrough came when we figured out we could put different items in his hands. He now appears somewhere on each of our trucks. The fun part is that he has something different in his hand on every truck. Wrenchie also has his own Facebook page and fan club. Silly, I know, but we like to have fun.
