The economic downturn of 2007 was a rocky period for many in our community. Silvia Soria and her husband Edwin were no exception. “My husband and I were real estate agents. We moved from Falls Church to Culpeper twelve years ago,” relates Silvia. The Great Recession left them without real estate clients. “So in 2008, Edwin said, ‘Let’s clean houses!’”, recalls Silvia, “We know the real estate world. We understand the expectations for staging a home. We have two hands. We can do it!” Edwin and Silvia did their research, developed a business plan, and started their own business. She explains, “Exceptional service is our vision. Detailed work is our goal. 
        We customize our cleaning to the customer’s wishes. We clean the way you want it done.” Always the perfectionist, Silvia’s top concern is to meet the customer’s expectations. The first customer for Rockie Maids Cleaning Service was a professional woman with high standards for how her house was to be cleaned. The customer even went as far as to have every cleaning product lined up on her dining room table that she wanted used for each task. Rockie Maids proved up to the challenge. “When we finished,” Silvia recalls, “The customer said, ‘You really cleaned my house very well. Other people have come in here with just their duster. They swirl it around and stir up a bunch of dust, leaving my house dirtier than when they began. But with Rockie Maids, my house is truly clean!’”
