Anne McMillen – Senior Account Manager, Enterprise Fleet Management
“Responsive, very professional, strong customer service. Genuine, they walk the walk, you’re not just another number.”
“[Calico] makes my operation so much more efficient. They are an extension of me, the pay is minimal compared to what we get.”
“They work hard to develop and maintain the relationship. They are in it for the long haul. A lot of janitorial companies will come in and tell you they’re good, but they just get it done as quickly as they can. We’re a bank so on the security side, there is a lot of work after hours and our buildings are highly regulated. We need to be extremely careful, and Calico’s standards are really high. They keep good quality people working.”
“High level of integrity and professionalism. They don’t beat around the bush. They deliver the bad news and handle the problems. ‘Three strikes, you’re out.’”
Dennis Calik – Senior VP of Manager Properties, National Bank of Arizona
“Dear Mr. Strand, As manager of the Walther Wilshire Building for six years, I have worked with several vendors and companies representing various services. I want to let you know, first, that your company overall and your employees have been great to work with. Miguel has been very prompt and professional in responding to my requests. He has handled sensitive situations well and I appreciate our working relationship. In addition, I always enjoy speaking to Robbie, who handles many of the calls and calls to check in with me periodically. I also had the opportunity to speak to Camille recently, who was also very thorough and professional.
Thank you for providing excellent service to our building and I look forward to your company’s continuing building maintenance service.”

“Calico Building Services recently completed a full scale remodel of one of our Performance Bicycle locations in San Diego, CA. I was beyond pleased with the entire process including the bidding (very fair pricing), the permitting (extremely fast turnaround) as well as the workmanship, which was first rate. The GC thoroughly managed every aspect of the job, comprehending the plan set very well.
I have contracted Calico Building Services to be our National provider for repair and maintenance issues in all of our 110 stores. I have also sent the preliminary information to Calico for our next potential new store build out so they can begin the bidding process.
I highly recommend this company to anyone, and would happily discuss in detail their performance via phone or email”

“Dear Ron I wanted to take a moment to thank you and your staff for the excellent services they have provided at our building, Mission Viejo Business Center, over the past years. It is truly a blessing to have a janitorial company that can be relied upon to follow-through and correct the various issues that arise during the course of managing a multi-tenant office building. Again, I thank you and your staff for the dedicated services they have provided and the personal attention we have received.”
Director of Property Management
“Dear Mr. Strand, When I began my search for a building maintenance company for the Cornerstone Shopping Center in Cerritos, I was very discouraged. I interviewed several “full-service” companies, yet none of them offered the comprehensive list of services that I needed. Cornerstone Center houses three national retail tenants including Borders Books, Hollywood Video and Gateway Computers. We take great pride in the appearance of our property as well as providing our tenants with quick response to emergency service needs. I was very pleased when you submitted your proposal, which met all those needs, such as day porter service, power washing and general repairs and maintenance.
Since we contracted with Calico I can honestly say I have been very impressed by your courteous staff and timely responses. Your company has been able to address all of our maintenance needs. Your staff always goes above and beyond my expectations. I truly appreciate Calico’s pride and dedication and look forward to working with you and your staff for many years to come.”
“When I first started my business relationship with Calico Building Services, they served mainly as our janitorial company. Through the years we have grown to depend on them for many other services. With my very active portfolio of properties, I have been able to call on Calico to handle an array of services. They consistently perform in a timely manner with quality workmanship.
In the daily demands of property management we don’t often take the time to say ‘job well done.’ That is why I am sending you this note. You and your staff have always responded to my service needs in a prompt and courteous manner. From janitorial service to construction, it is good to know that I can always call on Calico when I am faced with getting a project completed with quality and on-time. I appreciate the business relationship we have forged over the past 10 years and look forward to working with you in the years ahead.”
