A Secret to Eden's High Quality Communities

Eden’s Maintenance and Janitorial team is critical to Eden’s success. They're committed to Eden's mission of providing high quality homes and communities to 22,000+ residents across our portfolio.

Nearly 150 members strong, this team keeps Eden’s properties in tip top shape attending to the day to day maintenance as well as preventative maintenance of Eden’s 137 managed properties. Their dedicated work is noticeable in the neighborhoods where Eden is located. To recognize the importance of this work, Eden celebrates this team of staff at an annual Maintenance and Janitorial Appreciation Event.

Last Friday, it was held at Victoria Green Apartments in Hercules. In addition to fun activities and team building, staff also benefited from training sessions including multi-family operations and maintenance, irrigation and sustainable landscaping, and an overview of green cleaning products.

The maintenance team shared some of their thoughts about working at Eden and, more importantly, working to improve the lives and the community for Eden’s many residents.

“You kind of become family with the residents, they see you every day, just like family… It’s a good feeling,” shared Julio Zavala, Maintenance II. Julio has been with Eden since 2014.

“If they’re smiling, I’m happy. That means I’m doing my job,” shared Walter Garrett, Maintenance I. Walter joined Eden’s team in 2017.
