Moshe Spund: Assembling a Livelihood

By James Florence, Diamond Certified Resource Reporter

OAKLAND — As a kid, Moshe Spund enjoyed taking things apart and reassembling them, but he never thought he’d one day make a career out of it. “I’ve always had an interest in knowing how things work,” he affirms. “To me, it’s like a puzzle. If something isn’t working right, I enjoy the challenge of figuring out what’s causing it and how to repair it. Still, I never considered a career in appliance repair until I saw an online job listing. When I went in for the interview, I was skeptical, but once I started, I fell in love with the trade.”

In 2018 (roughly five years after he started as an appliance repair technician), Moshe and his longtime friend, Natan Framowitz, decided to join forces and start their own appliance repair company. “Natan and I have known each other since we were kids, and after I started doing appliance repair, I convinced him to join me in the trade. Eventually, we wanted to be more independent and provide better service for our clients, so we started our own business.”

Today, as owner of FixEm Appliance Repair, Moshe says his favorite part of his job is interacting with customers. “I enjoy meeting new people, getting to know them, hearing their stories and sharing some of mine. Along the way, I try to provide the best service I can and offer advice on appliance maintenance.”

A resident of Richmond, Moshe spends the bulk of his free time outside. “I’m a pretty outdoorsy guy, so I try to enjoy the California weather as much as possible,” he affirms. “I enjoy going hiking, skiing, and camping in places like Lake Tahoe and Yosemite.”

In his life and career, Moshe espouses the value of positivity. “I try to do at least one positive thing every day,” he says. “Whether I’m dealing with a client or a complete stranger, I make it a point to be kind and act in a selfless manner. I don’t like negativity—I’m all about keeping things positive and doing right by others.”

When asked the first thing he’d do if he were to retire tomorrow, Moshe says he’d probably start a new business. “I like to keep busy. I have a hard time imagining a life of just sitting on a beach and drinking margaritas. That may be fun for a while, but it would get old pretty fast.”
