“I have known Pina for 18 years since I first moved to Seattle, when she owned and operated Botticelli Caffe.
As a frequent customer I was able to watch Pina run both the café and another Restaurant over the years. Pina was a tireless worker, sharing her time between the café, her daughter and all of her many friends made through the business.
The clientele was made up of regulars who came in for her great smile and great conversation. Tourists were always given sound advice and direct ions to all of the best Seattle sites.
I was able to work again with Pina on the purchase of my home where she was instrumental in finding the house my family enjoyed for several years along with all the close friends and neighbors Pina was able to introduce during our residence. Pina is always cheerful, dependable and tirelessly working to help those close to her.”
S.B. - Interior Designer
******I was a tenant in an apartment building that Pina managed. From inquiring about the apartment, to leasing and maintenance, Pina proved herself to be friendly, responsive, and available.
My husband and I felt comfortable and well supported while the building was under Pina's management. When a new manager started, there was an unfortunate and noticeable change in the sense of community within the building.
After experiencing many other apartment managers, I rate Pina as tops. She was always professional, reasonable, and neighborly. I would be lucky to find another manager as caring as Pina.
B.S. - Transportation Consultant
******“I have known Pina for 15 years as a wonderful friend, reliable apartment manager, prosperous business owner, a professional Realtor and a wonderfully committed mother.
I'm in senior product management at Microsoft, and if I want to make clear that Pina rates highly in all areas in my opinion - interpersonal communications skills, her attention to detail, her ability to socialize or work in a group in a charismatic and professional yet relaxed manner. She would be an asset to many and scores highly in my opinion”
