Since day one, Merry Maids of Oakville has been run as a family business. Both of Leslie's daughters were raised in the business, with her oldest daughter Ashley buying her own Merry Maids franchise after graduating from university, and her youngest daughter Alexandra joining the Oakville franchise after working in advertising. Even Leslie's own mother worked for Merry Maids once upon a time!

Running Merry Maids of Oakville like a family business means they consider staff to be members of their extended family and always encourage their team to be the best people they can be. By strongly supporting their team members and their families, Leslie and Merry Maids of Oakville has developed a strong, trusting relationship with every single staff member, promoting a sense of responsibility and ownership in the excellent service they provide.
