"The Flooring Girl" knows her stuff...and is a nice person besides!

 

And I have proof! Personal proof.

 

DEBBIE GARTNER . "THE FLOORING GIRL"

 

Last week I was having my hardwood floors refinished and was using a non-sanding technique which I know nothing about. Since I live half way across the country from her I couldn't use "The Flooring Girl". 

I received a bid and had scheduled an appointment to go ahead. I decided to send "The Flooring Girl" an email to ask a quick question to make sure I was doing the right thing.

She gave me the facts and told me to get a second bid.....she felt I was being overcharged.

I followed her advice and received another bid for 1/3 less. The more expensive company told me why they were more expensive and I again asked Debbie's opinion.

Do you know what she did.....she called me pronto at 10:30 PM when she had just gotten home from work. I didn't reach my phone so she sent me a quick email saying for me to call her back in the morning.

Okay....so, do you see the customer service "The Flooring Girl" provides?

AND I AM NOT EVEN HER CLIENT!!! This is what she did for me:

Returned an email pronto. 

Gave me the truth.

Saved me money.

Called me at 10:30 at night after getting home late from a busy work day.

So...if you live in the Westchester NY area why wouldn't you hire someone like that??

Debbie, I wished you were in Minneapolis but the people of Westchester NY are so lucky to have you.

Here is her website:

No surprises here Shar.  I have met The Flooring Girl in person, and I can honestly say "she's all that and a bag of chips".  She rocks.  She is such a wonderful person and deserves this shout out too.  Which also means you rock!

Good morning Shar -

It's not surprising that The Flooring Girl AKA Debbie Gartner had your back.  Debbie rocks and we always enjoy her very informative flooring posts.  Debbie's knowledge rocks in and out of the Rain!  Great job on featuring Debbie.

OMG, Shar, I'm so touched.  Thank you.  You are so sweet.  BTW, I'm not usually responsive on email (as I get TONS of emails...so I now have an asst checking up on these every few days)...but if people send something to AR acct or call, I will always try to respond quickly.

You will learn so much for Debbie. Thank you for subscribing to us Rob!

She is all that, chips and a coke Roger!

She is a sweetheart Sheila. Which is icing on the cake with her knowledge. 

Couldn't agree more John!

Glad I sent it through AR then Debbie. Ha. You are awesome. Thank you. 

Couldn't agree more Kathy.

Shar - Wow, what a great story.  Debbie obviously goes above and beyond to help her clients.  This is a great testimonial to someone who loves her work and knows all the ins and outs.  So glad she was able to help you out.

I have never met her in person, but knowing her from AR has been enough to convince me that The Flooring Girl is the one to go to for flooring needs and questions.  I'm very lucky to have a flooring guy in my area (the same company as Debbie, Floor Coverings International) that I've worked with many times and refer to my clients.  The last client I gave his name too called me with rave reviews and thanks for suggesting him.  

Very nice testimonial, Shar!!  You are pretty special too!

Thanks Lisa. Debbie rocks way more than me. LOL

Sally, she is so incredibly knowledgeable about flooring and her blog posts are so informative.

Ah shucks Sharon, thanks. That's great that you have a Flooring Int'l there and the person is good. It is all about the person you know!

It's okay Donna, I would want Debbie in my state before me too. LOL
