What Our Customers Say

We believe in providing the best service to people.

Let the testimony be our voice!

My siblings and I highly recommend Ms Gni Lam from Island Maids (Yishun branch). Our hearts are filled with gratitude as we write this. We found Gni online from the excellent reviews we had read. She is highly professional in all her dealings, very sincere and extremely efficient in helping us find an EXCELLENT Myanmese helper for my 85-year-old mother who lives alone and is a first time employer. When we went to see Gni, it was the CNY period. We told Gni that our mother wanted a Christian helper and would want her to start work immediately. Gni was very experienced and did a thorough needs assessment. She was able to provide us with 3 potential candidates with good profiles, to interview on Whatsapp, within two days. She gave helpful pointers through our selection process and supported us each step of the way in getting the best match. My mother was very hesitant initially but was all praise for the helper after she arrived. The young lady was mature and had a very good work attitude. We want to also thank Peter, her Myanmese trainer, whom we also met on the day of her interview on Whatsapp, who did an excellent job training her. To our delight, the language barrier between my mother and the helper was easily solved with Google translate. The helper cleaned very well, was fast in picking up instructions and took initiative to keep the house spick and span. My mum found a wonderful companion in her because she was respectful and had a wonderful attitude of service. From the time of selection to hiring and even to date, Gni answered every query promptly and she has given us patient guidance in new procedures we were unfamiliar with. We are truly grateful for the AMAZING help and support rendered to us and we want to thank Gni Lam and Peter of Island Maids Yishun Branch from the bottom of our hearts for making our first time experience a smooth and enjoyable one! With deep gratitude, Mrs C Sng
