Sharkey Shines, LLC was founded on the principle that our customers' trust is of the utmost importance. Our entire team is committed to maintaining a high level of trust. As a result, 98% of our business is from repeat customers and referrals.
Sharkey Shines LLC was founded by Mike Sharkey.
Mike was born #6 of 12 children and raised in the Bridesburg section of Philadelphia. He left his factory job in 2000 and reinvented himself by starting a house cleaning, window cleaning and power washing business. Mike was a Quality Assurance/Product Technician for the leader in remanufacturing auto parts in North America. He has taken this training experience into all operations of his business. He is motivated to please his customers, and to give them the best service the industry has to offer.
The book that inspired Mike to start his business was "Acres of Diamonds", by Russell Conwell, founder and president of Temple University. He suggests you read it, too, to find out where YOUR acres of diamonds are hiding.
Loretta started out doing administrative and secretarial work, but always had a passion for performing. She has 25 years experience performing in community theater as a singer, dancer and actress, as well as costuming and making up herself and others in many of the productions in which she participated. She took her passion to the professional level when she worked for The Singing Telegram Company and Huntingdon Valley Dinner Theater. One of the skills she acquired from working for the Singing Telegram Company was map reading, which came in handy in the early days of Sharkey Shines, which was before smart phones and GPS technology. Loretta calls herself the original GPS!
Loretta designed the Sharkey Shines LLC logo, as well as this website you are reading right now! She has also implemented the 64-point Quality Checklist and develops a cleaning plan and supply list for each cleaning job.
Mike and Loretta's son, Ross, also works for the company. His attention to detail is very evident and is a great asset to the business. As a youth, Ross had the opportunity to be a sports ambassador with People to People. He traveled to Amsterdam to play soccer.
Terrance Stansbury is the newest member of our team. His willing spirit and servant attitude are very evident, and he puts a lot of energy and enthusiasm into his work. He shows great promise as a future leader with Sharkey Shines, LLC.
The Sharkey Shines' team anticipates the opportunity to earn your trust and to deliver the best service in the industry.
