To Whom It May Concern

Coming back to a clean house from work is one of the things that I have looked forward since I started working ten years ago. Elsa Hans made sure that I did not have to worry about a clean house! I hired Elsa shortly after I began working and I have not regretted my decision to do so. Her work is meticulous and her attitude even more so.

Elsa is a responsible individual who does not need supervision. Since the first day she reported to work, she has worked independently and was always willing to take on new responsibilities. Before I hired Else, I had heard some great stories about how difficult it was to hire good helping hand. However, Elsa proved this concept wrong with her hard work and always took out time “to do the little things” that are often not part of her job description.

I would like to describe Elsa in three words only – dependable, punctual and hard working. She arrives on time every day and is never tardy in her duties. Her cleaning techniques are not run of the mill which is why her work is thorough and done on time.

I am sure that she will be a great asset to whomever she chooses to work with. I recommend Elsa in any capacity related to cleaning that is offered to her. I can be reached at (222) 222-222 if you need any further information regarding Elsa and her work.
