Joy Mateo

Executive Assistant/Customer Service Supervisor

My name is Joy Mateo and I am 25 years old. I am an experienced Customer Service Representative and Real Estate Appointment Setter. I joined Kaizen Rentals in June, 2020 as the Guest Messaging Representative and assistant. I'm a family person so I love spending my free time with my daughter and my family watching a movie or making food for them rather than going outside. What I love about my job is that I get to have an extended family with the rest of the team. I enjoy helping out guests resolving any issues that they encountered or may encounter during their stay while making the guests feel at home and ensuring that they enjoy their stay as much as possible. I enjoy working with my colleagues because they are motivated, hard working and willing to go an extra mile for the betterment of Kaizen Rentals. I am thankful for Jeremy and the rest of the team for being able to help me improve personally and professionally and have learned a lot over time. “A job isn’t a job, it’s who you are”

My name is Grethel May Ynoy, 31 years of age. I have 8 years experience in Customer Service. I joined Kaizen Rentals last June 2020 as Guest messaging assistant/customer service. I have 2 beautiful children who annoy and inspire me at the same time. Nothing I love doing more than spending time with my Family.

This is the best team I have worked so far, we support and guide each other. We value each other's suggestions and opinion and most importantly, we listen and try to understand each other.
