Gabriel Villanueva
Starling Turnover Technician

I've lived in the DC area since I was four years old and have followed in my dad's footsteps working construction and doing contracting work. Coming to work for Nest and Starling was a logical progression and I am so glad I made the change in spring of 2018! Now, I get to fully manage my own projects and crew all while handling any problems that come up throughout the day. That might include floods, lockouts, urgent repairs, getting a space ready for new residents or just dropping an emergency refrigerator if one breaks down. It’s an honor to take good care of the residents and make their homes shine. I know that anything can be solved with a positive attitude, which is the spirit my parents instilled in me when they made their lives here after coming from El Salvador. Now I live in Hyattsville with my wife, daughter, father in-law Andy and our dog, Scooby. Fun fact, I get to commute to work with Andy every day since we are both proud Nesters!
