Nomination: “Jasmine has been a GEM since the first day that I met her. She came in ready to work and learn the industry. She impressed every member of leadership that she met, so much so we offered her a permanent position with our company. Her commitment to JWilliams Staffing as well as Irvine Company did not go unnoticed. Jasmine has been an All-Star member of our team and has complemented our business so well! I'm grateful that JWilliams Staffing sent her our way!”

He maintains this property by himself and trust me, that is no easy job! He goes above and beyond what I ask of him and I am so incredibly grateful to have had his help. Thank you, JWilliams Staffing, for sending me a rockstar! He's tackled emergencies head-on and never quits until he's confident the job is done right.”

Recently, the opportunity has presented itself, whereby; the position became available full time. I did not hesitate to offer Abby the position as full time Property Manager.

Nomination: “Stephanie has worked with me for a couple of years now and traveled to different communities to which I have been assigned. She has such a positive attitude and gratitude for the customers that we interact with each day. It is evident in the way she professionally handles each customer as if they were a guest in her own home. She sells from the heart and that is difficult to teach someone and must be an innate skill. I am very much a type A personality and want to interact with every customer. I am able to trust Stephanie to fill my shoes so I may take a couple of days off to recharge. She is truly a blessing to me.”
