WHAT ARE PEOPLE SAYING

Yesterday a young repairman named Spencer was here at my home. I had called your office for a repair as my air-conditioning was not working correctly. Spencer called but I was not available. When I returned Spencer's call he advised me as to what time he would arrive. He arrived at said time and was very courteous even though you had not put in my air-conditioning unit. It is very refreshing to find a company that not only hires personnel who attend to the problem at hand but are also courteous to your customers.
