Excellent service from Gni of Yishun branch! My dad has a helper that has some medical conditions, Gni has assisted us in the entire replacement process and found us a suitable replacement helper in a very tight period. She is very responsible and handle the case professionally even though maid replacement case come with no agent fee. Thank you so much Gni!
Hi I would like to give our sincere compliments to Gni from Island Maids in Yishun branch. While we are new in hiring helper, Gni made the process very smoothly and fuss free for us. She provides prompt and reliable advises to us, and we secured our preferred helper eventually. Throughout the hypercare period (the first 2 weeks), Gni provided great help in resolving minor conflicts / communication gaps with the helper. We are very happy with the helper selected as well as the service rendered by Gni.
It was our first time hiring a helper and we were clueless. We were served by Seven (at AMK),he explained to us every single detailed properly and ensure we are not stress about anything. He even keep in touch with us after we had our helper to ensure we are coping well.
In order to employ a domestic maid for my home, I went to AMK Branch Sales Manager Ng Di Shen (Seven). He carefully and thoroughly outlined the selection maid criteria. When we have faced any problem, he assists us extremely professionally by talking to the maid. He always stands with the owner's perspective to assist in problem-solving. After we have hired the maid, Mr. Seven is also a service Oriental to do the follow up with the maid performance. His office phone number is (655) 7703.
A big thank you to Island Maid AMK branch consultant Shana for recommending Masiroh to our family. It has been almost 1.5 months since Masiroh joined us, and she has been a pleasure addition. A great help in the family with house chores and looking after my parents-in-law in their 80s. We feel reassured having Masiroh look after mother-in-law who needs to go for dialysis treatments, in our absence. Additionally, Shana has just helped us to hire another helper, Putri, to help my own elderly parents. She is just 4 days old at home, but proving herself to be reliable and a great help in the family too. Thank you Shana for taking the time and effort to understand our two families’ needs and recommending Masiroh and Putri respectively. Regards, Joyce
