Do You Believe
Anything Is Possible?

At Esencia, the “not-so-secret” ingredient to our success in the Property Maintenance industry is transforming the impossible into the possible.

When Others Say No,
We Say Yes!

That emergency call to handle a complex repair job.

The multi-family residential property that needs a thorough cleaning…and a fresh coat of paint.

That lobby area that needs to be decorated just in time for the holiday season.

Each request requires specialized labor and a variety of unique resources. And, as usual, they must be completed within a specific timeline and a defined budget.

This is just a glimpse into the world of Property Maintenance.


At Esencia,
We Live And
Breathe Property
Maintenance.
 

Founded by two Colombian immigrants, Esencia started from humble beginnings by cleaning multi-family residential buildings.

It was through this field experience that we gleaned behind-the-scenes insights into the everyday challenges faced by both Property Managers and Service Providers.

Property Managers struggle to find reliable, quality, and certified Service Providers. And managing all of them is overwhelming and time-consuming.

Meanwhile, Service Providers want consistent work, but they lack the systems and resources to effectively market and manage their business (on top of fulfilling work orders). They’re frustrated and stressed out.

But it doesn’t have to be this way…

At Esencia, We Are Transforming The
Property Maintenance Industry.

Whether it’s for Property Managers or Service Providers, our purpose is clear.

We are on a mission to streamline and automate the property maintenance process for the residential real estate industry.

By leveraging our in-depth field experience and intelligent software technology, we make property maintenance seamless and easy.

Easy to feel more productive.

Easy to feel more accomplished.

Easy to feel that anything is possible.

More importantly, we give you the peace of mind knowing that whatever property maintenance solution you’re seeking, Esencia is at your fingertips to make it all happen.

Esencia

We Make Possible.

Our History

A Journey From Struggle To Success

In 2006, Angelica Bermudez, a personal banker at Chase Bank, met Mauricio Grisales, a dishwasher guy. Two very different people. Two different stories. Completely different circumstances. However, both of them had big hearts and big dreams. They fell in love and began to share their lives together.

By December 2010, Mauricio lost his job while Angelica was only 3 months pregnant. Very difficult times, they lived off of one paycheck for many months. In June 2011, they embarked on an opportunity to start their own cleaning business, while welcoming their first baby in the world. Two new parents. One income. And a business running on negative profits.

One month before Angelica’s maternity leave ends, they made a brave decision to have Angelica quit her job as a personal banker and take care of their baby. With no family or friends nearby, they made a promise to each other: Do whatever it takes to make their “one-person” business work.

From that moment, their real journey began. They have built their business while raising their two kids. They worked twice as hard and struggled financially every single day. They made many sacrifices throughout their journey, but family has always been their top priority. From cooking and eating meals together, attending their kids’ games and recitals, helping their kids with homework, and keeping them away from modern distractions, and most importantly, praying together each night.

Their real success story is not what they’ve accomplished as entrepreneurs. It’s who they have become as leaders. It’s who their kids will become one day. It’s about the impact they are making on their employees and team members. Ultimately, their true success is fulfilling their life’s purpose: to inspire others to pursue their dreams.

For Angelica and Maurcio, life has taken them on a beautiful roller coaster. Today, they’ve impacted (and continue to impact) the lives of hundreds of immigrants, small business owners, and families in South America.
