Hi! I am Yeong-Min Choi. I am the President and co-owner of CertaPro Painters of Arlington. In true small business style, I also hold the role of finance manager, commercial estimator, production manager and the company cheerleader. I was born in South Korea but spent all my formative years in Trinidad and Venezuela. After meeting my husband in University, I lived and worked in Maryland for 18 years working in public accounting, federal research grants management and internal auditing. Life was predictable and stable up until the year we decided to purchase a painting franchise based in Arlington, VA. With a one-year-old in tow, we moved our little family to Virginia to start the next chapter of our lives. Being a business owner and team leader has been a challenge that has brought me fulfillment in many areas personally and professionally. I enjoy working with my marketing and sales team because we allow each other to think outside of the box and find ways to make our ideas come to life and ultimately translate to revenue streams. I enjoy working with my painting teams because they show me why we do what we do daily. The work they produce is amazing. I enjoy working with my clients! I have formed some great friendships with my circle of clients. I love what I do, and I have great respect for people who are passionate about their work as well. My goal is to grow our company by nurturing our client relationships so that we develop customers for life! I want our company to be your painters for life!
