What a wonderful presentation this week by the super-talented Erik Reyna of E.R. Painting Services!  We knew he was great at what he does, but we didn’t realize what an ARTIST he is, doing so much more than painting cars in his auto body shop.

Based in Santa Ana, and family-owned and operated since 2009, Erik and his crew can paint just about anything!  From the obvious auto projects and restorations, to store fronts, to medical equipment and even guitars—nothing is treated as less than a work of art, and the stellar 5-star reviews you’ll find on Yelp are thorough testaments to that.

As if the reviews and photos aren’t enough, E.R. Painting Services boasts a jaw-dropping 10-minute response time on Yelp, providing estimates FAST.  Plus, customers get free towing to the body shop, so they don’t have to worry about putting themselves at risk driving their car in after an accident.

Since many of our cars have seen their share of fender-benders, Erik kindly gave us some recommendations of what to do after a car accident:

1. ALWAYS call 911, or the police

2. Get phone numbers from witnesses

3. Take photos

4. See a doctor;  get an X-ray

5. Let the insurance companies decide who is at fault


In addition to learning what to do AFTER an accident, we were given some tips on how to maintain and protect our vehicle’s paint year-round.  It’s recommended that you wash your car weekly, wax, and invest in a spray wax for in between washes, to apply touch-ups after removing stains and tar spots. This will keep paint-damaging hard water from affecting the clear coat, and keep your car looking new and shiny.

Erik happily works with insurance companies, and is rated in the top 3 body shops in Santa Ana.

THANK YOU, Erik, for helping us protect ourselves and our cars! For more information please visit!

What People are Saying

In the past 42 years I have received many good leads that have become good clients.  Many of them are still clients of the firm I am with today (This represented 50% of the clients that I merged into the new firm).  I have used many past and current members for a reliable source of good and reputable suppliers for both business and personal needs, including several members that helped me make profitable investments over the years.

Hal Grimshaw, Belden Hiramoto Liu & Co., LLP

I joined EAOC because Phil Kintz asked me. At the time the cost and early meeting time was a concern. The first six months of membership I received and extra $6000 in volume.

Gary Gregg, Creating With Glass

I have been a member for many years in several different classifications. EAOC has always provided me with a steady flow of leads. However the biggest benefit I’ve received has been “outside” of the core purpose of leads. A past member John Valentine, mentioned to me that he had heard about some industrial land for sale in Costa Mesa. I ended up buying it, building a warehouse and running my business at the time (South Coast Stationers) there for about thirty years. It was an excellent investment.

Pete Sloan,

A lead from Past member Bob Hardman eight years ago resulted in $15,000 of business. A lead from Mel Smith eight years ago resulted in $25,000 of business. Benefits of membership include direct business from other members resulting in $10,000 in business and direct business with other members that resulted in excellent service and financial savings.

Carlos Salazar, Salazar Associates

After thirty five years, four children, three dogs and many stories my wife and I felt it was time to refurbish the hose. The now center piece of our house is the new custom cabinets in our kitchen, bath and walk in closet. Phil Kintz Custom Cabinets and Woodworking did nothing short of amazing work. We love our new old home.

Nick Kirkland,  Roger Stone Agency

One of the members invited me to join his poker group. After meeting and getting to know the players, one of them introduced me to their neighbor who hired me to remodel their kitchen. This led to another lead and another kitchen remodel.

Phil Kintz, Knitz Cabinets

Joining EAOC has been a 2 fold blessing. First, it has led to an increase in my business through leads and business conducted directly with other EAOC members. Second and most importantly, is the network of great people and resources that the Association provides. Not only can I count on quality work, great service and superior value, but I also have the pleasure of working with some of the most dedicated professionals in their respective fields.

Mike Banhagel, Lawyers Title

I have built my entire business on leads from the EAOC. I started my association management firm in 1981 with one client EAOC. In the last thirty four years the business has grown to fourteen associations. We employ eleven full time and one part time employee. I can trace ten of my long term clients to referrals from EAOC that brings in over $500,000 annually. The network of present and passed members has had a tremendous impact on my life.

EAOC has been a reliable source of steady business for me for about thirty years. Thank You EAOC!
