Compleat Stair Co Inc

Posted on: 8/17/2010

Not bad if you don't mind profanity

I went in to Compleat Stair at the recommendation of my contractor. We needed a few stair treads, 2 handrails, some balusters, and a newel post. I was very impressed with a few things: the variety of stock, the amount of in stock materials, and the friendly, helpful, but low pressure salesperson. He was very laid back, and knew a lot about the materials. What I was not impressed with was the fact that on both occasions I was in the store, I overheard other staff cursing. The first day, it was brief, and the second day it was a tirade filled with colorful language. I am no prude, but I found it disrespectful to me and any other customer who was there. In fact, during the tirade, I felt extremely uncomfortable and I could tell my sales guy was, too. Also, (full disclosure: this is something I did not experience first hand) my contractor went to switch out the newel post due to a split in the wood. While the sales guy was switching it out, someone (not sure what his role is) began using profanity with my contractor complaining that he brought it back! Amazing lack of courtesy there. To sum up, they have a lot of good materials and some good staff there-just be careful not to get the staff members who will swear at you!

Cross of Life Montessori School

Wonderful School

My child has attended COL Montessori for almost a year now in the toddler program and I can't say enough about how great it is. The teachers are incredible-very knowledgable, caring, supportive, and encouraging. My child has become more self-directed and independent in his play at home, not to mention more confident and social. The school is run by smart people who really care about the quality of the school environment. The classes are generally very small (largest one I've heard of is 12-13 kids). It is located at Cross of Life Lutheran Church's beautiful campus, which provides a great setting for the school. I highly recommend this school.

Disappointing

We contacted Ryan Taylor of taylor 28 design because we wanted to renovate our kitchen. We were initially interested in this firm because of their claim to be the homeowners advocate and to see the project through to the end. After 4 or so months of planning, communication became hard with Ryan. It seemed as though he was always out of town. The planning stage became drawn out (pun intended!) and came to a virtual stand still. Our last attempt to contact Ryan was sent in an email one month after our previous communication and we received no response at all. Also, in the time we had worked together (5-6 months including the time at the end when we did not hear from him at all) we had asked him for an invoice repeatedly (he told us initially that he would bill us monthly) and never received one. To our bewilderment, we received a phone call from Ryan 5 months after our last attempt to contact him! He wanted to know if we had received the plans and invoice he had sent-which we hadn't and at that point clearly wondered if he had ever sent them. We ended up paying him for his time. Although I am very confident in his technical abilities, I am deeply disappointed in this experience. Not sure if he just became uninterested in our job, tried to manage too many other jobs, or what, but the customer care was awful. I would not recommend using this firm.

Carolyn Kaplan, MD

Wonderful experience

My experience with GRS was wonderful. We went to them after 5 years of infertility. They absolutely took the worry out of the process-as it was said to me "let us worry about this now". We were successfully pregnant through IUI. Dr. Kaplan is not the friendliest, however, she is very knowledgable. Her assistants, Suzy and Susan are amazing, though. What other doctor's office do you call and they know who you are just by your name (and not ssn, birthdate, etc)? The level of service there was so great; I highly recommend this practice.

Glow Hair Studio

Best quality haircut

I've been a client of Glow Hair Studio for several years now. The quality of haircut is amazing-they are utter professionals who are well trained. They treat you with great courtesy and kindness. I always love my hair and it grows out really well, so it will last and last.

Dependable and nice

I have used Alexander for at least 5 years for pest control. They are always on time, and you always have the same technician. They worked with me when we had a baby (only treated the outside and charged half) on the times when I couldn't leave the house with the baby. I have only ever had to call once in between treatments for pest problems. I would highly recommend them.

Nally Collision

Do not use this business!

I took my car to them after an accident. They had my car for three months. They would never return my calls (until I got the manager of all Nalley Collision Centers involved). After three months, my car was finally ready. I took it to another collision center only to find out that the work is shoddy and sloppy. Do not take you car to this shop!
