Hi, I'm Hector


Some fun facts about me!

  • I like "sunny/hot" weather
  • I could never be a vegetarian
  • My kids are my world
  • I have a love for cars
  • I'm history & architecture junkie
  • I would never rock climb
  • I'm not afraid of success
  • I still listen to 80's & 90's music
  • I'm simple & forward. Life's short.
  • I'd pick locks for free. That's how much I love it but my wife "needs" things!

and this is my story...

I was born in Puerto Rico but am originally from Hartford, Connecticut and I moved to Naples, Florida when I was a teen.  It is here that I was given an opportunity that I found out working with locks was my passion.  I applied for job at a local locksmith company when I was only 25 years of age.  I was so excited to learn what I knew was a rare trade and the owner was willing to train me.  I am so grateful that I had such a great mentor and boss.  I became a Certified Locksmith and I LOVE what I do!

I decided to have faith and follow my dreams and turn my passion into a business.  As the saying goes, "Do what you love and all else will follow."  My customers ask me, "Why would you leave Florida for Iowa?"  My initial response is, "My Wife!"  Happy wife, happy life. Right?  Truthfully, yes, my wife is from here originally but I have visited many times and fell in love with the city of Des Moines but more so the people who live here in this state!  Who knew what beauty lies in Iowa!!

Enthusiasm, integrity and personalized service goes into every call.  I realize that most times people call a locksmith in an emergency situation and I try to make it as convenient, painless and quick as possible to get you back to your day! 

I am grateful everyday that I have such a fulfilling job.  My primary focus is to now make Des Moines aware that I am here and when you find me, store my number as "Your Local Locksmith Hector."  You never know when you will need to call me.
