Pleasant experience.

Went here after having a not so pleasant experience with another local jeweler. Was a breath of fresh air. Great customer service. Both ladies that work here are very friendly and knowledgeable.

H & A International Jewelry

Posted on: 12/8/2008

Questionable integrity

I bought an estate engagement ring from an Internet estate jeweler and took it to H & A for appraisal. I only had a very short time frame to return the ring if it didn't meet my (fiancee's) expectations. One of the owners (Haim Habib?) led me to believe the ring was worth much less than I paid for it, and would only appraise it for about 90% of what I paid. This was quite an expensive ring and it just made me sick to my stomach after the extensive search to find her the perfect ring. They subsequently offered to make me an identical ring since it appeared I would be returning the ring. I followed up this appraisal with multiple others, all of which came in much higher than what I payed for the ring. From my experience, they are either dishonest or clueless, or maybe both. It's also interesting that 3 different employees at the store each estimated the ring's age with confidence, but wildly different.

Template Services, Inc.

Great customer service!

We are in the process of restoring a historic home and need to recreate a lot of the existing trim. We got a quote from a custom millwork shop that was quite high, so we decided to look at making the trim ourselves. Andrew at Template Services was extremely helpful while I was educating myself on the process. I initially called just to find out how much custom moulder knives would cost, but discovered that Andrew was very knowledgeable and was more than willing to answer a lot of general questions and give advice. He was even able to recommend a moulder for us that he knew had been discounted. I ultimately bought 5 different sets of custom knives from them. The turnaround and cost were both good. However, what would really make me go back to Template Services is the customer service. It was top notch from start to finish. Read the guarantee on their web page and believe it!

911 Lawn Services

There when you need 'em!

I have used 911 on occasion over the years, always with consistent great results for a fair price. I typically maintain our yard to save $$, but occasionally I need someone to come in and take care of it for me. I've come to rely on 911 for this. I called Moses this Sunday after my mower broke. He checked out the size of the job and emailed me a quote on Monday. The job was done by Tuesday lunchtime. I had similar results when I was out for an injury recently. The lawn always looks nice, and they are pretty meticulous. Thanks guys!

Julien Perry DPM

Highly recommended

I've been seeing Dr Julien for many years for various foot/ankle issues, including 2 surgeries. He's very professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. Takes a while to get an appointment at this point, but once you go, waiting room times are typically pretty short.

Very satisfied customers

Were in a historic home with 8 fireplaces, 4 per chimney. We got several quotes. All recommended relining, although we were skeptical because the masonry looked good to us. Two recommended steel liners which were cheaper than MHs "guardian" system. They pour a type of cement around inflatable rubber tubes to form flues, and strengthen the chimney. For the small price difference, we liked the idea. Chimneys also had to be built much taller. We worked with Fred Reedy. He was very scientific about his analysis and recommendations. He answered any question with confidence and no fluff/BS. We hired them. The crew was very courteous, punctual, and cleaned up after themselves every day. They kept the house pretty dust free. They worked weekends when they got behind schedule. We had one issue where they built about 4 feet of one chimney incorrectly. I pointed this out and they happily tore the 4 feet off and built it back correctly, no questions. They did good quality work all the way around. Fred checked in regularly and took any concerns we had very seriously. During the process, we retrieved a piece of CHARRED wood from inside the wall! That is what made it all worth it. Other reviewers said they were told they needed liners when they didn't, but we definitely did and we have the proof. Overall we were very happy with the job they did. Wasn't cheap, but it was a very very big job.
