A Message From the Founder of Anita’s Housekeeping Referral Agency

Anita’s Housekeeping Referral Agency, founded in August 1994, is named after the youngest of our five daughters. Prior to opening Anita’s, I joined the California Coalition of Domestic Referral Agencies (CCDRA), a non-profit member organization committed to the education of Domestic Referral Agency (DRA) owners regarding the specific laws that regulate the industry.

Since 2004, I have served as an active CCDRA Board of Director. One of my many duties for CCDRA has been to present information at twice-yearly educational workshops for the enrichment of other owner/operators of DRA’s. As a business owner, I find CCDRA to be an excellent means to gain the knowledge and expertise to operate a DRA as required under California law.

I decided on the DRA business model because it offers an excellent resource for clients looking to acquire housecleaning and other household services. Anita’s affordable rates allow clients to get help for time-consuming household domestic services, giving them more time to enjoy life with family and friends. Anita’s registers independent domestic workers, giving them the opportunity to expand their cleaning businesses on the days, times and locations of their choice.

My mission for Anita’s from the beginning has been to offer affordable rates to clients, and at the same time, assure independent domestic workers receive a high percentage of the client job cost. This is a win-win philosophy to gain happy repeat clients and dedicated domestic workers.

As the owner of Anita’s, I am privileged to offer needed household referral services for the residents of the San Diego county community and plan to continue my involvement with CCDRA to make sure I am on top of the industry laws.
