Our Team - Professional employees who keep the spirit of the work alive

Magic Painting's staff are great to work with and care for your home!  We employ top-notch individuals who exemplify passion for their well-being, teamwork and profession.

We hire on character and experience first and then train to Magic Painting's standards and operating procedures.  Our success model is based both on hiring permanent employees (not temporary workers), and on our attention to a positive, earnest and professional work culture.  This in turn supports employee engagement, keeps the spirit of the work alive and assures quality of service and product. 

In addition, our employee certification program creates clarity and autonomy for staff development and advancement.
