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”
Customer Service Specialist
I am Ellaine Faith Gemar and I would love to be called Faith by the people whom I consider to be very close in my heart. I was born on Dec 21, 1997 and has been living a colorful life. I graduated in 2018 with a bachelor's degree in Education.However, life is indeed full of surprises that it did open various opportunities for me to explore the other side of the world when I became a Customer Support Representative for Microsoft.
It was indeed very fulfilling to help customers discover the best potential of what they already own, but when the pandemic hit in 2020, I had to prioritize my health and safety which also paved the way for me to land various personal assistant posts for CEOS based in the US. It was difficult handling people with different personalities, but when you love what you do, the world will reward you.
At present, I am very much privileged to be working with Kaizen who provides unending opportunities for me to flourish into the best version that I can be. I am looking for many more years to come, serving the company the best service they do deserve.

My husband is a frontline hero, working as a nurse. We love doing stuff together as a family. We love traveling and spending weekends anywhere our feet lead us to. I am a fan of staycations. That's why I treat my guests just how I would want a host would treat us as guests. I feel fulfilled every time I see happy faces, hear guests enjoying and satisfied during their stay. Here in Kaizen, we're family. We're not perfect. We would have mishaps, misunderstandings, mistakes. But, at the end of the day, we learn from it. We move forward together. We believe in each other. We are each other's strengths as a team. We are KAIZEN!
