Blogging can be so very rewarding Thanks Rooms to Go and Kassim Hadeel.

I have duty today and other than a few phone calls, negotiating repairs after an inspection and catching up my closed deals on the MLS system it's been pretty quiet.  No one stopped in at the office today.   But early this afternoon the phone rang and it was Rooms To Go.  I had recently made a purchase, but I was sure I didn't give them my office number as a contact.  I gave them home and cell. 

But when I answered the phone I was pleasantly greeted by Kassim Hadeel.  As it turned out someone had Googled his name and found my Furniture Shopping Experience in a blog post.  He called me to day to say thanks for that post.  And you know, as it turns out ... him calling to say thank you really just made my day. 

So now, not only did I have a really great shopping experience before, I know that Kas is a real stand up guy because he called to say thank you today. 

So if you go shopping at  Rooms to Go at 3172 Macon Tech Drive in Macon Georgia 31206  478-781-2919

And hey... if you are his boss reading this... two things 1. give him a raise and 2. He must have the 4th of July off next year to attend the Lake Sinclair fireworks event.  (you could help sponsor it too and get your logo on the back of our t-shirts... call me.

Because hey, soon I'm gonna be in the market for a new dinning room table. :)

Debe- thanks and I hope it's a good one.  Busy, but good. Hope you have a great week too.

Eric- My business is certainly built around that principle and I love to share when others give that kind of service too.

Judi- I love good service without push-ness

Cindy- I'm maing a special point to "showcase" great service when I find it.  It should be rewarded with more business.
