Local San Diego Girl Scout Visits Bill Howe Family of Companies in March

San Diego plumbers received a special guest at the March company meeting and assisted her in reaching her cookie goal and send cookies to troops overseas

March 15, 2014 San Diego, Calif. – The Bill Howe Family of Companies is one of the largest low cost, family-owned and operated service companies in San Diego. Plumbers, HVAC technicians and water mitigation specialists all work seamlessly through the three divisions offering a one stop shop option for San Diego residents. Part of the success of the company has been their involvement in community events, services and youth outreach. Bill and Tina Howe have always supported a variety of organizations, and during their March company meeting, they added a local Girl Scout to the long list of beneficiaries of the Family of Companies.

The Girls Scouts were organized in 1912 and founded on the tenants to build girls of “courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.” Although Girl Scouting offers a wide variety of activities and opportunities for girls, Girls Scout Cookies have become the American Icon of the organization. In San Diego, Girls Scout Cookie Season begins February 1 and lasts through March 16 teaching girls five essential skills: goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business ethics.

Girl ScoutTaylor Cole from Girl Scout Troup 8928 contacted the San Diego plumbing company with a perfect cookie pitch. “She was detailed and convincing, providing me with three very specific ways in which our company could help,” said Julie Riddle, Marketing Director for Bill Howe Plumbing. “I was so impressed by her professionalism at such a young age, I wanted to help her reach her goal and Tina was on board from the very beginning.”

Taylor arrived early on March 12, 2014 to meet with Bill and Tina Howe and set up. She and her mom jumped right in mingling with the employees and sharing breakfast before the start of the meeting. When she was introduced, she took the stage with confidence and explained who she was and how our company could help. Taylor was able exceed her goal by several hundreds of dollars in Girl Scout Cookie sales in San Diego. Plumbers rushed to her after the meeting adjourned helping to support Operation Thin Mint and even buying her last remaining boxes.

“She will make one great businesswoman,” said Tina Howe Vice President of the Bill Howe Family of Companies. “She was a natural, and I know it is not very easy to stand up and address a room full of strangers, especially when the majority of them are men. She did wonderful, and we were so thrilled to have her join us and be a part of our meeting.”

What Joel C says about us

Very Satisfied. Michael is always on time, Michael has been doing all of the plumbing related to our remodel. He always does exactly what he commits to do within the estimated cost. He keeps me informed if any wrinkles pop up, and his plumbing skills are excellent as we have had no problems or issues arise after he has left. Very professional! Highly recommend.

What Rick M says about us

We had other companies come out for estimates on what was considered a major job with jackhammers and replacing cast iron pipes under the house… having been stung before, we wanted another estimate just to make sure we were making an informed decision. The prior estimates went up to $21,000!
Bill Howe sent us an amazing veteran plumber, Dashawn and his co- worker Anthony. Dashawn did a thorough check of the problem, explained what he thought was needed … he did a final check and we were able to see for ourselves what was the problem. He recommended a complete cleaning to de-scale the pipes, and not the major work we dreaded. Thanks to his solid analysis and patience in making sure we saw what he saw, the issue was resolved completely, and saved us thousands of unnecessary work. None of the other estimates included the cleaning; only the major repairs. Thanks to Dashawn’s knowledge, professionalism and honesty, we’re Bill Howe customers.

What Carolyn Housman says about us

This was our second excellent experience with Bill Howe. We had a blocked kitchen sink drain 8/5. I was able to get a same day appointment which is AMAZING. Person on phone was very courteous and set me up right away. Tony arrived at the house (called me 30 minutes out so I was able to be ready). He diagnosed the issue (blocked drain, not the garbage compactor) and was able to snake it and ran the water for 10 minutes to be sure the drains were clear. He cleaned up everything and you would not have known he was even there. Thank-you Tony and Bill Howe, you always know how.

What Ed Gohlich says about us

Cory was our technician on this job. We had a time sensitive repair issue and Bill Howe understood and assisted with getting the job done quickly.
Cory was on time to start the job and finished it quickly. Upon his leaving our home he’s was courteous, very knowledgeable, explaining what the problem was and how he fixed it. Very good communication and this is the way it’s has always been when we use Bill Howe plumbing.
Great company to work with.
Thanks Cory.

What Bridgett says about us

I am extremely happy with the service we received from Bill Howe Plumbing. We were given an incorrect diagnosis of our main sewer line from another vendor, but Bill Howe’s servicemen came out for a second opinion, correctly diagnosed our problem and resolved our back up issues. We will continue to use Bill Howe for all our future plumbing needs!

Thank you Bill Howe Plumbing.
