Our goal is to provide a way for you to pursue your passions and aim to help you achieve your goals. So, it's not all work and no play. However, when we work, we work hard. So, what can you expect?

 1. Be Committed- Were not trying to be workaholics, but when we are on the job we give it 100%.  We need to be committed to the task at hand. Push through the elements and deliver top-notch service to our clients.

2. Smile and Have Fun- Yes work is serious, but we don't take ourselves too seriously. A good attitude is contagious and we surround ourselves with positive vibes and people. 

3. Be Honest- This means being truthful when things go wrong. It includes having the integrity to do the right thing even when that is not the easy thing. Honesty involves being trustworthy, loyal, fair, and sincere.

The Fast Company Story

Robert Fast founded Diamondlot back in 2000. That simple Lot Service company laid the foundation for what we are known as today: Fast Company. In 2013 Robert Fast partnered with Josh Ricketts and that’s all she wrote... Bob and Josh put their heads together. They hand-picked an outstanding office crew and team members whom they trusted. Then they listened and grew.
