Absolute Home Services was founded by Liz Jonasson. Liz is a business owner, a mother of two wonderful boys, an athlete and resident of Burlington, Ontario. Her path to becoming the business owner at Absolute Home Services began when she was 16 years old at her family cottage in Muskoka. Liz's ties to Muskoka remain to this day as Absolute Home Service offers services in the Muskoka area.
Liz began by working in the summers for College Pro Painters doing Exterior and Interior House painting throughout high school. In University, she started her own College Pro Franchise, again specializing in Interior and Exterior House painting.
In her own words:
“I loved running my own business and being part of learning organization like College Pro. I graduated from the University of Western Ontario with a degree in Civil Engineering however, I never practiced Engineering when I graduated. I loved working with College Pro, so I became a full time staff member as a General Manager for Northern Ontario.
As a GM, I recruited, trained and lead 25 other students in operating a painting business. I continued to excel and enjoy the leadership challenges and the business acumen that I gained at College Pro for 5 years. I was then promoted to Vice President of Ontario. I led 5 General Managers and managed the finances of the division. I enjoyed another 6 years as Vice President with College Pro and then decided it was time to try something new. After 17 years in one company I thought it was time for the next phase/challenge of my life. I was hired by Paul Davis Systems as the Operations Manager.
Paul Davis is a restoration company that restores homes and businesses after the effects of fire, wind and water damage. Paul Davis works mostly with insurance companies as a preferred vendor. As the Operations Manager I managed a crew of 25 emergency technicians who responded to these devastating situations. After 2 years with Paul Davis, my desire to run my own business continued to drive me. So, in September 2012, I decided to take the leap and start Absolute Home Services.”
