The Great Steak Escape!

Real Estate Agent with Lisa Southern Real Estate

Wow! I love when I can say that!

I had one of those rare moments when I took some time off to devote to myself. No Husband or kids, just 5 great women out on the town in Raleigh, NC.

For those not from Raleigh, it has transformed itself before our eyes. It has gone from a boarded up and scary Capital City to a vibrant, happening bustling and booming metropolis. There are condos, restaurants, offices, hotels, clubs and shops springing up all over the downtown area. Our new convention center will really help showcase this evolving city.

Anyway, WOW! Sullivan's Steakhouse  is The place downtowm! Great location, valet parking, beautiful interior, fabulous  martinis. great live jazz band, uncomparable service and Steaks prepared to your exact specification. Not only were we catered to from the moment we walked in, the manager stopped by a couple of times to join our party. The part that really has set it apart in my mind is the personal attention. We went out on Thursday evening and today (Saturday) I received a handwritten note thanking me for choosing Sullivan's, referencing the occasion  and inviting me back soon!  What a powerful tool that note is! Now I know how my clients feel when I send them a note for small reasons. I won't forget that feeling, it has renewed my excitement about the personal touch!

Check It out.....Tell them Lisa sent you!

Talk about a personal touch! Hopefully I'll be able to make it to your neck of the woods sometime and dine at Sullivan's.

Lisa, thanks for stopping by my blog and subscribing. I wanted to check your blog out and you should write more localism posts. This steak is mouth-watering and makes me hungry at 9:00 a.m.! I love how you described Raliegh's recovery. These kind of posts will really help you where it counts, with consumers! ~Pat
