We had already picked out most of our appliances and came into the (Buckhead) showroom just looking for a wine cooler. We were very surprised to learn that their pricing was better than the national chains and we ended up using them for all of our appliances. The showroom staff is great and their knowledge of the products is unbeatable. They saved us from making a couple of mistakes that other stores didn't even bring up. It was a refreshing experience finding people with this kind of knowledge of the appliance world.- CJ
Just had a new dishwasher installed by Norman. As with every Sewell employee I have encountered in 15 years in Atlanta, he is professional, friendly, efficient and extremely knowledgeable about his task and product. thanks much-Kent B
Hey!, I know a lot of builders are quick to fuss when things don't exactly go their way. I just wanted to be just as quick to let you know when things have been handled quickly and professionally as well. Rivers edge has had 8 closings in the last couple weeks with only a few lighting issues , but I have got to tell you that out of all our vendors with any issues involved, Brooke has been " top of the list"!!!, she has made anything and everything happen with little effort on my part other than letting her know what we needed to happen. Because of her posative attitude , and quick , professional response , I've got to tell you that I'm very impressed, and would recommend your company for all of my neighborhoods with The Providence Group, and or otherwise !!!! Brooke is certainly a person who takes the time to care about the impact she makes with your company as well as ours, she is an asset we appreciate, thank you!!!... She has been outstanding... Which means " Colonial " has been outstanding ...I'm thrilled to pat someone deserving on the back.... I just don't get very many chances to... Congrats to whoever hired her... Great instincts!!! Lol, please let her know many of my co builders in other neighborhoods feel the same way. Superb customer service from you and your company.... Very much appreciated!!! -David C.
Mr. Herrington, Brent and Matt were here this morning to install our new dishwasher. They did a masterful job with a difficult installation. They were never annoyed and they took no shortcuts. It was a joy to have them here. We have just done our first load of dishes after waiting for two weeks for the machine to arrive (we did wash dishes during that period by hand). The dishwasher worked perfectly. I am thankful for their skill and their commitment to doing the job right. -Pete P
I want to take a minute to let you know that your Field Manager, Jason Russell , is an excellent representative for your company. Early in February Jason came to my home to measure the kitchen for new appliances. At that time I had two possibilities for every appliance. Jason carefully measured the spaces and referenced the specs. He answered my questions and the information he provided allowed me to make a decision about which products to purchase. He was professional and informed. He was willing to listen to my concerns and answer questions. After Jason left I ordered the appliances and scheduled the installation. When Jason returned for the installation he immediately began to work on prepping the kitchen for the install. He installed a new gas connection so that the stove would recess further and trimmed a cabinet so that the new refrigerator would fit into the space. When the delivery team arrived, Jason worked with them to install all four of the new units. He was careful not to scratch my floors or bump against my walls. He protected door openings and made sure that all of the connections done right. After all of this Jason cleaned up all of the mess that resulted from trimming the cabinet. Jason proceeded to educate me on the basics of the new appliances and told me to be sure to call if I have any problems with the new items. Shortly after he had finished the kitchen, Jason learned that the delivery team had delivered the wrong dishwasher to my home. He chased after the delivery truck and got the correct appliance. He then returned to my home and switched out the dishwasher he had installed earlier for the correct unit. Although he must have been frustrated, he did not act this way when he returned to my home. I am very impressed with the customer service I received from Jason Russell and your company. I will recommend Sewell Appliance and your BSI Premium installation service to everyone I know. -Ellen G
We are writing to you to share positive comments on our experience working with one of your designers—Amy Harley. We recently moved in to our new home at Adams Vineyard and could not be more pleased and delighted with the lighting selections we made. In large part, this was due to the professionalism, knowledge and expertise displayed by Ms. Harley. During the process of building our new home, we interacted with a variety of subcontractors and vendors. Ms. Harley was at the pinnacle of that list of individuals. She knew her products well and made a point to understand our needs and concerns before making any recommendations. Not only did her suggestions prove helpful, but she was extremely personable and accommodating in her approach. We have already referred another homeowner to Ms. Harley and will continue to do so. We wanted you to know that Ms. Harley made a significant difference in how we approached our lighting purchases and we could not be more satisfied as customers. Thank you for having individuals of her caliber on board! Continued success to you and your organization.- Bob & Bea G
I want to mention that when we began our remodeling project we spent considerable time with Ed Greenway. Ed is extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the products that he sells. He is also a very nice man, courteous, professional and friendly. He made a seemingly difficult process seem a lot more manageable. Now that we are enjoying our fine new appliances, we want to be sure and recognize Ed for having made such a great contribution to the project. Thanks to both Ed and BSI.- Jim and Ann
I just wanted to say thank you so much for your great job in getting my crystal chandelier ordered, put together and installed. I am so pleased with it and just wanted to say that it was a pleasure working with all of you. Mary Faulkner thank you for your patience amidst so many phone calls; you were always so helpful. Jeremy, it was a pleasure working with you and your guys, Mike and Andrzej. You did such a great job while being careful as you did it and so kind.Thank you, Colonial Lighting- Kaye
Hello All, I wanted to follow up and let everyone know we received our new Bosch dishwasher that we swapped out. A big "Thank You" to Chris for keeping me abreast of the new delivery date. Chris, you said you were sending a senior installer, and I don't know his name, but he did an awesome job! I know I "blew a fuse" when the initial delivery didn't happen, but you guys have more than made up for the inconvenience. Hannes, thank you for everything you do! Chris, again, thank you for personally checking in with me. I'm sorry for any confusion I may have caused. Thanks to Ms. RaChel too! We look forward to doing business with you guys again, and Chris, please tell the senior installer you sent to my home, "he rocks!"- Don and Terrie
Wanted to let you know that Mitch called and has praised our deliver/install teams. We have been out to his house several times and he has thoroughly enjoyed all of our crews that have been there. Today’s delivery was by Robby and Chris- Tonya
Chris, Thank you. Everything is working great. Love working with your guys. They are super nice, smart and were very helpful thinking things through on where to put the downdraft control - I felt like they truly wanted me to be happy and not just cross off their list and head to the next job. Sara
Chris, Just a quick note to let you know how impressed I have been with the installation crews that have been here. The crew today worked extra hard to get my Sub-Zero aligned and even suggested I turn the unit off until the sanding is over to protect it. Suasan
Jill: A note to advise you that the replacement microwave arrived late yesterday afternoon. The truck driver and his assistant volunteered to assist in installing the microwave into its built-in space which I very much appreciated. They are to be commended. I tested the microwave and it worked to specifications. Clearly, the original one was defective. We are now completely satisfied. A final note. Mary and I enjoyed working with you for the whole process (purchase of new stove, refrigerator dishwasher and microwave). We had a list of three appliance dealers to check out: Ferguson's, Clayton Appliances and Builder's Specialties. Our initial inclination both from a convenience and servicing standpoint was to select between the first two. We were not satisfied with the responses to our questions from staff at the first two, and made the decision to go to Builder's Specialties. Are we glad we did. You are by far the most knowledgeable, perceptive and helpful individual we worked with during the process. Your personal and prompt service particularly after the failure of the first microwave was excellent. It is your professionalism that will now have us turn to Builder's Specialties first in the future when we need appliances of when friends and neighbors ask where to go to find appliances. Mary and I request that you forward this e-mail to Builder's Specialties senior management as an example of how personal professional service can make all the difference to a customer. -Mary and Steve
Hello Chris, we are sitting here and I don't know if I emailed you or not but we just wanted to say "Thank You" for all you did. Helping us with pricing and the guy that installed our gas logs was so thoughtful and very knowledgable about everything he did. We do appreciate all you have done and wanted to make sure you knew how much we appreciated it.- Bill & Vicki
Hello, I just wanted to take a second to send a note of thanks along to your company. We had an installation appointment earlier with two of youremployees, and while here they noticed a lot of water in our front yard. We called a plumber out and, sure enough, there was a water leak. Big thank you to you guys for not only doing a great job on the installation (it looks BEAUTIFUL), but for also having great folks that work for you. We surely do appreciate it. Happy Thanksgiving!- Amanda
Jeff came out to fix my fireplace today. He was friendly, knowledgable and was able to troubleshoot and fix my gas logs. Thank you very much Jeff! -Kevin
Hey travis. Please pass on to BSI (panama) management the outstanding work that your installation crew did. All appliances were installed perfectly and in a professional manner. Thank you for helping make my job as a builder easy. -Andrew
Was having problems with my garage door and called another company to come out to fix my door being off the track. Felt I was overcharged by the other company as well as was not comfortable with the quality of work so called BSI to come out to inspect. Jerry came out and was very honest and inspected both doors and made the necessary adjustments which was rework from the other company that supposedly fixed the door. Basically I was overcharged by the other company and the work they did was not correct, Jerry corrected the issues and I am extremely delighted with his service. Would absolutely only call BSI for all future garage door issues!!! Thank you Jerry! It is a pleasure to find an honest company who's work is quality!-Steve
Today Kris and Bradley came to my home to install a range hood and I want to take this opportunity to tell you how please I was with their work. They took the time to explain the process to me and answered any questions my wife or I had. Both of them were extremely thorough and detail oriented with the installation. Truly they are professional installers and I'm sure you are pleased with their work just as I am. I will be grateful if you send them back to install the new hood.- Jerry
Just had your technician Avey at my house for repair on my garage door--He was very nice and corteous, and did an excellent job. Your company needs more craftsmen like him...Thank again- Robert.
To Management and Staff, I want to commend Desirae Bell for taking ownership of my billing requests and seeing it through. She did not past me on to some one else or put me on voice mail. Desirae's prompt professional response exemplifies excellent customer service. I hope you are rewarded for your job performance. Thanks, Carver.
Austin, I am sending this email to let you know how fortunate your company is to have two such fine gentleman working for you. Nate and Jackson delivered a fridge and dryer to our home this morning and Awesome.. Awesome ...Awesome...is all I can say! These two gentleman were kind and respectful and of the utmost caliber!!! Thank you for sending such professionalism and integrity our way; truly a rare find these days. - Scott and Amy
Greetings Hannes! Your delivery/install crew just left not only were they courteous, Leslie was VERY knowledgeable of the products. It was a pleasure spending my money with Builder Specialties! Thank you for ALL your help, Carolyn.
Hello Miss Jill, I got a kick out of the men who delivered our oven and dishwasher panel today (Derrick and Don). Around 9:30 AM on the way down they called saying that they would be at our house at 11:01 AM. At exactly 11:01 AM the truck arrived. Oh, the wonders of GPS. We can be so precise. We are very pleased with the oven and panel. Thank you for helping us with these items. Frances and I want to bring to your attention (and anyone else appropriate) how professional and great the two men were who delivered today’s shipment as well as the refrigerator a few days ago. They made sure that everything was “just right” and that we were pleased with their work. They both are wonderful representatives of your company. Jill, thank you again for all that you have done for us. Just give us a call or email when you think the cooktop items will be shipped. We certainly are in no hurry. Have a great summer.- Tom
Just wanted to let you know how happy I am with new Clopay garage doors you installed. Every aspect of the installation process was above and beyond what I was expecting. Your installer was a great guy to deal with and friendly. He did an outstanding job installing the doors. He informed me one panel was damaged needing to be replaced. It needed to be ordered and I would be called when it came in. I called and talked to Jeff after they came in. Jeff said he could have a installer out the next day. Again the same installer was out to my house and replaced the panel. I owned a retail / Service and installation company for 25 years. I can be very picky over the smallest things and I'm not afraid to point things out. I couldn't find anything wrong after a thorough inspection. Everything was tight, square, and spot-on. Your company did a outstanding job beginning to end. Thank You !! ps Jeff was very friendly and great to deal with over the phone as well. -Mark
Thank you again Desirea for locating the parts i needed for my fireplace. I installed everything when I got home yesterday and it all fit perfectly. I am very happy (and I saved a bunch of money!). You were very helpful and I really appreciate it. I am very satisfied. -Charlie B
I wanted to take a moment to commend one of your employees, Chris Barker. Chris came to my home this morning promptly at 8, just as he assured me he would. He was most cogenial and proffesional. He explained everything he was doing and quickly cleaned the orifice. He made sure everything was working as it should be. He even took the time to explain to me how to turn off and on the pilot light to save maintenance. He is a true credit to your company. - Deborah L
It was a pleasure working with you and your installation team on my Garage Door project. I wanted to send a quick note informing you that Joshua and Mike were both professional and provided excellent customer service. They both worked efficiently and effectively removing my old Gargage Doors and installing the new replacements. They also took time to thoroughly explain operational procedures. I am very pleased with my purchase and absolutely LOVE my new doors!! I will recommend BSI to my friends and neighbors. - Joyce
I wanted to let you know that your service guy Chris went out of his way to help me at a house across town today. He diagnosed a non working can light of mine while he was at Henley Springs job. While it was only a bad bulb, which he changed for me, he saved me about an hour round trip to satisfy a builder. I really appreciate Chris' effort with this and thought you might should know. Thanks also to you and your staff for handling my last minute scheduling.. - Kevin M
Finally, I wanted to thank you so much for your help getting my July closings ready. I have to say the service you provide is the best among all of our subcontracting companies. - Michael A
Just wanted to let you know the guys just left and they were so nice and pleasant to deal with. Thank you for sending them! If I ever have an issue again, I hope to deal with your company (and those gentlemen). Have a great rest of the week! -Jody W
Thank You! Your guys were amazing. They were clean, neat and professional... oh yea and patient with all my questions. We are scheduled to have the stone done next Wednesday so can we schedule next Friday to have the final part done? -Charles G
Thank you so much for helping to get our dishwasher re-installed. It looks so much better. Curt and Jarod were absolutely wonderful! -Frances and Thomas
I just want to THANK YOU for all of your help in getting a copy of my invoice to me. Few people are as nice and as helpful as you are. I just want you to know that I appreciate your help and GREAT Customer Service. -Gail A
My husband and I would like to express our gratitude to your team for assisting us with the purchase and installation of two automated garage doors, and key-pad. From Dave, to Creighton to Neftali, we were treated courteously and professionally. Neftali even programmed our van to open both garage doors. We had a great experience with Builder Specialties. Thank you. -Elvin and Jennifer M.
Thanks very much for your help today. I have had a very pleasant experience doing business with you and appreciate you working with me on the travel issues I have.Jeff Beam and John Hill have to be two of the best service/installers I’ve had the pleasure of working with in a post sales experience. I pay attention to the little details both professionally and in my home, and found it very refreshing to know that there are some others out there who also obviously take pride in the work that they do. Please extend my thanks to them. -Brannon
We are thrilled! The men who installed the doors did a great job. They worked diligently on our funky door situation, and they were friendly and informative as well. They deserve a gold star! It's a pleasure to see skilled people at work. The doors are tight as a drum, so I know we'll appreciate that feature for a long time. And they are MUCH quieter than the old doors--all we hear now is the hum of the opener, instead of the rattle of the doors! I'm happy with the window shape, and the doors will be gorgeous after we get the house painted. -Anna
I am writing to express my appreciation for the work your company and key personnel did to assist with my Viking Appliance order. This project was quite complex due to the specialty appliance items, compressed scheduled and difficult delivery conditions. I was in daily contact with Linda Hosea, and her patience and professionalism is unmatched in my experience. She was more than willing to do whatever it took to get the job done and meet our schedule. -Kyle
Building a new house while raising two small boys is very stressful. Luckily we used Builder Specialties for all of our kitchen appliances, fireplaces, garage doors and chimney caps. They were extremely professional, prompt and very friendly and incredibly patient through all of my appliance revisions. It was such a relief to have experts to rely on for so many important and expensive decisions. We had considered ordering our 48" refrigerator online to save money...thank goodness we didn't! When it arrived and the doors were slightly uneven, Builder Specialty ordered a service visit from GE on our behalf. When the GE service tech couldn't fix the problem, Builder Specialties sent their own service techs out who immediately took care of the issue and then gave me useful pointers for all of my other installed appliances. I can't say enough about Builder Specialties incredible customer service. Thank you so much! -Mandy
The delivery went beautifully. The men were knowledgeable and nice and careful of my newly finished floors. Very impressive. The appliances look beautiful and I am very pleased! I want to thank you so much for your thoughtful assistance in selecting and buying my range, OTR, dishwasher, and laundry machines. You are a terrific saleswoman and I appreciate your extending yourself to help me select the particular pieces you found for me. Can't wait to use them! That will have to wait since I am just taking delivery of my long term storage and sea freight this week. I hope to get into the house by the weekend. -Margarett
Just wanted to say thanks for everything you did for us. We love our new garage doors. The installer (Thomas) was great- very nice and did a great job, as well. Please let his boss know we were very happy with him. -Don
My customer (Wiley Rabitsch with TWR Const.) called yesterday and went out of his way to repeatedly complement our delivery /installation crew to do his appliance installs. He said 'those guys went above and beyond' to work with his carpet man who happened to end up there at the same time. He said it was really refreshing to see a subcontractor who cared about the overall job as well as the work of other subs. He also, of course, asked for the same guy for his next three orders. Your crew(s) is selling our services by their actions on the job. Please thank them both or Derrick if he did both different sets of deliveries! EXCELLENT JOB BOTH TIMES!! -Kevin
Last week I had one of your repairmen (Guy Parker) come to fix my fireplace and I just wanted to let you know that he did a fabulous job. My fireplace is better than it has ever been. He took his time, he spent his time well and he just did an awesome job and I wanted to give you a heads up and him kudos. Thank you so much - great job! -Karen
I just wanted to follow-up and let you know the service tech was here today and did an excellent job – the fireplace is working great and is as clean as the day we had it installed – He was very thorough and knowledgeable. We were very pleased with his service and the fireplace looks and works great! -Evelyn
I just wanted you to know that Guy Parker fixed my fireplace today and explained everything to me and he was wonderful and I just wanted to be sure that you all knew how lucky you are to have him and I am so glad that you sent him to help me. So, I just wanted to be sure that Guy Parker gets the recognition he deserves because he is really outstanding, he was so nice and you are just very fortunate to have him. Thank you! -Joy G.
Just wanted to let you know that Joe McGuire was out to my house yesterday – on time - and got the problem taken care of. He was very nice. He brought a big drop cloth to put down and when he left, you could not tell he had been in my house. I appreciate your help in getting the problem taken care of and I will be able to enjoy my fire for the rest of the winter. -Bernice
