A Message From the Editor

Happy New Year Everyone!


I hope that you had a great holiday season. The New Year is in full swing and S.B.S. has a lot of exciting things planned for 2015.


First up on the agenda is our video campaign.  Each S.B.S. team member filmed a short clip about the daily tasks that they handle. We feel that a video campaign not only educates you on the collection process, it allows you to virtually meet our team. You can see our first video by clicking this link.  If you have any specific topics that you would like addressed in future videos, please do not hesitate to email me at  jkennick@liencollections.com or call me at 818-991-4600 x211 with your suggestions.


S.B.S. continues to be actively involved in CACM and seven CAI chapters.  Support of these outstanding organizations is vital because of all that they offer the CID community.  Stop by the S.B.S. booth and say HI to our marketing team of Alisher Sabirov and Rory Cambra at the next luncheon you attend.


Remember that S.B.S. is available for Lunch and Learns and can attend your Board meetings at no charge to the HOA or Management Company.

Please contact me at jkennick@liencollections.com or at 818-991-4600 x211 for further details.


We look forward to being of service to you and your clients in 2015.


Wishing you good health, happiness and prosperity in the New Year!

Senior Vice President

Team Member Spotlight:
Mariqueta Starling

Mariqueta started working for S.B.S. in 2009 with no collections or foreclosure experience and now has become our silent hero. She started her career working in the mail department where she learned the dynamics of the non-judicial foreclosure process.  


Since then she has moved to the accounting department where she handles and processes payments received from homeowners and clients. Mariqueta comes to us with a Bachelor Degree in Accounting Information Systems. She knows her way with numbers and computers. She has taken courses in Microsoft and C++, which has made her our go to girl when an in-house computer issue arrives. In 2013, she was the recipient of the S.B.S. "Above and Beyond" award for her top quality performance and undeniable work ethic.  


When she is not at work, she loves coaching girls' basketball and spending time with her family. A perfect day for her would be spending a day at the park playing basketball with her nieces.

Contact us to schedule a "Lunch & Learn" presentation for your management company!
