I have a WONDERFUL couple that REALLY needs to line up some work FAST as where they were working just left the area (I'm sure Jasona wishes she could have taken them!!).
The are available together or separately. I think she (Brenda) understand more English then she lets on and I think speaks a bit more also. He - Moisés speaks a fair amount of English so if you're only needing Brenda, he can help translate (of course face-to-face is always easier) and they're able to understand my "VicLish" most of the time (my own funnier version of Spanglish).
I used them both to do a MEGA DEEP CLEANING job on a mold problem (after kitchen cupboards were closed up for 2 months) and they were EXCELLENT!!
A BIG plus for me was I didn't have to stand over their shoulder explaining the gringo standards I needed!!
They were HONEST! When they were leaving and I sprung on them to check their bags and I was in the room while they were working (since it was where I was housesitting) - they didn't give off any attitude or get offended as some I've known have in the past (they had nothing to hide and understood the reasoning).
Brenda can do HOUSEKEEPING, CHILDCARE (she did REALLY well with high-energy 2 year old Gemini child!!) plus she helped Jasona with PREPARATION for her organic food dehydration business. She can prepare basic Tico/Nica style meals.
Moises not only is VERY conscious also with cleaning - but he's an AMAZING BARTENDER and can do all those tricks good bartenders can do like flip bottles++ - so they're GREAT for any parties you have coming up!!! (do you know any private parties coming up that does NOT pay the workers crap?)
I'm waiting to hear back from then on what other skills they have as well.
Again - they can work together OR separately. Need a quick Deep cleaning before the holidays/friends start arriving? 1 day or longer-term.
UPDATE - Dec. 10, 2012
I had the team out last week to do a MEGA THOROUGH DEEP CLEANING on a house I was Watering Plants/checking on for the past 7 months (through the Rainy•Mold Season) and they did an AWESOME JOB!!!!! I SOOO LOVE not having to tell people what to do because they just did it on their own!!!
They're in their early 30's and don't have any kids here to take them away from doing their job or flake out/no show from. They have energy and I didn't notice any physical limitations. They have SMILING FACES and are actually HAPPY to do their job (I find letting people have their music on also sets a POSITIVE tone)!!!
Tell them Vicki Connected you! (email me with any questions at LivingLifeInCostaRica@gmail.com or call me at 8-378-6679 [though my ringer doesn't work so send me a text just in case])
