In 2004 we decided to close our successful painting business in the San Francisco Bay Area and move here. It was a leap of faith, but we found a new home, started Sterling Property Services, and got involved as volunteers. To learn more about our adopted community, we both went through the Vision Henderson County Program. Today we’re happy to say that coming here was a wonderful decision.

This is home.

some local testimonials

We had a great experience with both Roger and Sandy of Sterling Property Services. With new exterior paint, our home looks fresh and has a more modern and pleasing aesthetic than it ever has. We had some challenges to work around–coordinating brick and siding colors as well as protecting the original materials–so we wanted to make sure to use an expert. Now our house is much brighter and more streamlined. Roger’s attention to detail and expertise were just amazing. It is so gratifying to see a true craftsman at work. We feel good that our siding is in great shape for years to come, and it looks beautiful!!!

I just wanted you to know how pleased I am with the care of my house that was done by Sterling Property Services. I saw Roger working on another house in the neighborhood and stopped to talk with him. Because of his knowledge and experience of being a painter and then all of he and his wife have done to find out the best information on how to power wash and clean a house that has mold and mildew, I chose him to clean the outside of my home.

I am extremely pleased by his work and would recommend him to anyone…not only for the cleaning of my house on the outside but if anyone needs to have their house painted. His experience and knowledge of the craft come through as he explains what needs to be done on your house. His friendliness and openness is what “sold: me on Roger and Sterling Property Services. He tells you everything he is doing and has done while he is working and when the job is complete.

Roger and Sandy have completed several projects for us over the years. They are always professional, prompt and the results are always excellent. I can recommend Sterling Property Services without any reservation.

You can’t find a better team! Sandy has fantastic color sense and has helped us choose the right colors both inside and out, while Roger does expert, professional painting. We wouldn’t use anyone else.

We selected Roger Ness to paint our condo and we’re very glad we did. Sandy’s help with our color selections was key. Our home has been transformed by their combined talents. We are thrilled by the results.

I am so glad I found Sterling Property Services! After a thorough (free) consultation, I was able to put together a long-term plan for my house’s exterior care, and get complete quotes for work that needed to be done this year.

The first step was to power wash my entire house and deck to eliminate discoloration, mold, and other destructive forces. Places I would have never thought about washing looked like new in a few short days. Second, certain parts needed to be repainted to reverse premature weathering. Roger took the time to explain the different products that would be best for our environment and desired look. Sandy matched the paint perfectly, and when the project was completed the house looked new!

Not only was the work impeccable, but the overall service was excellent. The quotes were detailed and within my budget. Sterling Property Services showed up on time, every time, and schedules were clearly communicated. The attention to detail was a rare find these days, including the clearly labeled samples for use later if needed.

Well, I guess by now you have figured out that I can highly recommend this company, and will certainly be calling them again when we need to care for our home’s exterior.

This is just a note to tell you how pleased Roxanne and I are with the results of the pressure-washing of our home. We were afraid it was going to be impossible to remove the dirt and mold, but Roger assured us he could do the job, and he certainly did. I can’t believe how he was able to work so efficiently at such heights. Please use our name for referrals. We would be happy to pass along the great experience we had to anyone who is considering your company.

Roger, thank you so much for your excellent work. It is a rare pleasure to be able to work with a craftsman like you. We enjoy our home even more because of your work: you took what we loved and made it even better. You are meticulous, quiet, and unobtrusive (even when working in plain sight!), and always pleasant. It was truly our pleasure to have you in our home, and we look forward to completing more projects with you in the future. If you ever need a reference, we would be most pleased to recommend you. Thank you again, Roger. Sending you our best.

Sandy, a big thank you to you and Roger! The house looks great. Roger did a great power-washing of the entire outside. The dirt, mold, and mildew are completely gone. It looks like it has just been painted! Roger arrived on the job as scheduled both days. The job was completed exactly as described. I am glad the neighbors gave us the referral information so that we could work with you.

We recommend Roger Ness, Sterling Property Services for painting and deck refurbishing. He has completed two projects for us and both have been well done and were completed on schedule. Roger works quietly, arrives when expected and work continuously until the project is finished. He is a professional painter with over 20 years of experience. His company provides paint color consultations.

Our house (white) was just expertly power-washed by Roger Ness of Sterling Property Services. He was punctual, polite, efficient, and very knowledgeable on a variety of subjects. He gave us a verbal and written description of what would be done, and the cost. The results were excellent and as he had described. His friendly, honest, open-minded/flexible attitude made a very pleasant experience. Roger is an efficient professional whom we would definitely hire again for house washing or painting.

Roger did a fantastic job repairing and painting a ceiling that had some water stains. He also painted two large rooms and now my 30-year-old house looks almost new! He is very diligent in his work and does all the necessary prep work before he even picks up a brush! He cleans up ALL his mess too!! He even removed some ugly wallpaper in my master bath and painted the walls to bring it up to standard. Since we plan on selling soon, the updated painted rooms will surely help in the sale. Sandy was extremely helpful early on as she had excellent suggestions for color selections and staging ideas.

We have used Sterling Property Services in the past for some power wash work and plan on using them again just before we list to get the outside looking crisp and clean. We would definitely recommend Sterling Property for painting, power-washing and color consulting work.
