Last week I was showing property out by the Spokane River in Post Falls. Driving to meet my client, I passed the home on the corner of 1st Street and Ross Point Road. A crew was constructing a shop, and I thought to myself that it looked like a BEAUTIFUL shop, as far as shops go. On my way home, I noticed that the Custom Sheds, Inc. crew had set out a sign, and a hand made sign, at that. I smiled and had the thought that those guys, who were doing a great job of building a quality shop, were rightly proud of their work. I should take a picture, I thought. But time didn't allow, so I continued on back to Coeur d'Alene.
A couple days later, my clients wanted to take a second look at the Post Falls home. As I drove past the shop house again, the shop was completed and the fence company was in the process of putting up a privacy fence. The posts were in place, and the crew was securing the cross pieces. I regretted not taking a picture of the pretty shop because soon it would be hidden from view. I decided that on my way back home, I would snap a picture of the shop, and the sign, and send it to the builders.
As I came upon the house I was startled to see that in the 45 minutes we had been taking another look at the home, that fence was nearly complete! Not just the shop builders, but the crew from American Fence Company too, these guys work FAST! So I pulled over and snapped my pictures. I also met the landscaper, and the friendly sewer guy who was looking at the underground pipes with a snaking video camera. I met the fence guys, but unfortunately the shop builders were long gone. Everyone was smiling, and cheerful. Everything about his project was beautiful, quality and FAST!
If only we could say the same about all of our experiences with contractors and service people!
