When it comes to assessing her clients’ homes and offices, Victoria El-Zarif doesn’t like to delegate. The Sparkling Homes owner visits each of her new customers personally, determining their needs before sending her crew to sanitize bathrooms and kitchens and vacuum carpets. For consistency, Victoria sends the same crew member each week, which means customers get to know the people they’re letting inside their homes. In addition to general housecleaning, the staffers polish silver, do laundry, and organize closets and garages.
