Rick Baker of PAV-KOTE

Rick Baker of PAV-KOTE gave the classification presentation this week. Rick was born in Missouri. He moved to California in 1984. He and his lovely wife Cherry, have three children. He started Pav- Kote in 1994.

Rick showed us pictures of his new trucks and equipment that meet Tier 3 emissions. They look better on the job and the employees are happier. 75% of his business is making locations ADA compliant. We saw concrete switch back ramps, truncated domes that warn visually impaired they are entering a lane of traffic and the handicap parking signage and striping. With all these ADA rules and regulations a property manager or owner needs a professional, knowledgeable firm to help them and we are lucky to have PAV-KOTE.

PAV-KOTE manufactures their own seal and has crews working seven days a week laying 20 million square feet of asphalt sealer per year. A company should seal their asphalt every two to three years. A slurry coat holds the asphalt together. Rick also explained permeable asphalt that is laid for drainage in a parking lot.

PAV-KOTE specializes (75 to 85%) in the maintenance and installation of asphalt and concrete from San Diego to Santa Barbara and out to San Bernardino. They provide:

  • Asphalt Removal and Replacement Asphalt Fabric Overlays
  • Asphalt Repairs
  • Seal Coating
  • Striping and Signage

Good Leads for PAV-KOTE are introductions to property managers, apartment owners, mobile home parks, home owner associations and churches. Their slogan is “You Can See the Difference”.

What People are Saying

When I was invited to be a part of the EAOC, I had no idea that a “by invitation only” networking group existed. Well, we’ve been around since the early 70’s. And, what a great group of business associates we have. 

Not only are these members excellent business owners that I can refer my clients to, they are an invaluable source of knowledge for me and my clients. 

Often, merely providing information is just what was needed. These professionals are like my business partners, they are champions of my business as well as their own. 

Joining this group of dedicated business professionals has been the key to my success and I’m happy to be a part of this fantastic group. 

Gizi Clemmer, FirstTeam Real Estate

I joined EAOC because of a friend.  In my first year I have gained over 10k in continual annual business.

Quinton Fasola, ASURE Software

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 an 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

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!
