We often joke that while Sandy may have most of the creative ideas, Roger is the one who really makes things happen.

We started out in the San Francisco Bay Area in 1985 as Ness Painting & Decorating, before moving here in 2004 and founding Sterling Property Services. As time has gone by, we’ve become well known for our unique ability to give our clients the latest in color and design guidance, then bring the ideas to life with the finest craftsmanship. We’ve revitalized countless tired houses so their owners could fall in love with them again, and helped sell others. Let us know how we can help you!
