Achieving Superior Customer Service by Treating Every Call Like Mom’s Calling

“These days, when so much is done via email and online and can be impersonal too; it was very nice to speak with a person who genuinely cared about the service they were providing and the customer too.” – Maria Obradovic, Powerstone Property Management Office Manager.
