Leann is mom to two teens, and owns Unique 2 U Cleaning & More ,LLC , a cleaning business that services both homes and businesses. Her office is in Hillsboro, but her house cleaning service is available throughout the Portland area.
Along with her kids and husband, they have a dog , a cat and two chickens. Leann says she’ll need to purchase a farm if they continue to add animals!
When not running her business, she loves to go hiking , camping, and spending time with her family. You’ll often find them at the coast for a quick day trip!
Leann began her business by cleaning just one or two houses, but as she gained referral after referral she realized she needed to launch her own cleaning service. With her family’s encouragement and support, Unique 2 U Cleaning & More ,LLC was born. Her business recently celebrated its second birthday and she says that is one of her proudest moments.
She says her aunt is one of her biggest mentors. “She doesn’t know she’s my mentor, but I’ve seen her run other businesses and then start her own business and be successful with it.”
Leann’s passion for providing the best possible customer service coupled with her desire to help people is the cause of her biggest challenge. “My clients mean the world to me. They are the reason I went into business. It is very important to me to find the right people,” she explains. Prospective employees not only need to meet Leann’s standards, they also need to pass federal & state background checks.
She advises new business owners to research their business idea and find people in that field who are willing to share their experiences around owning a business. “Being a business owner is not the easiest job in the world, but if you are passionate about making it work then it is a rewarding feeling to know you are not only doing something for your family, but also able to help others take care of their own families.”
She loves the freedom working for herself gives her. “I have the freedom to take care of my kiddos and ensure I can go to every appointment my son has in order to give him the help he needs .
Leann’s best referrals are people who own vacation rentals, real estate brokers, property management companies, those who own a business, and private home owners.
She loves being a member of the MOB Alliance and creating wonderful new relationships with other businesses and discovering new mentors.
