Tybee Island, Ga. — The past several months – I guess since August of 2008 – have been quite a hectic time for me and the business and all our associates. So when I proposed to my wife that we take November thru March and “over winter” at Tybee Island it seemed like a good idea.
The decision has proven to be a “Godsend” from the standpoint of our business – we would have been out of business on the lake now for 17-days due to the “ice storm of the decade” that hit western Kentucky.
More importantly, however, I needed some “away time” to breathe and relax even though we both knew we would be working at least an average of 6-hours a day – down from 12 hours on average and that for us is R and R.
Far more important than all this though is the Tybee “Dog Park” and the wonderful friendships and relationships that have developed as the result of taking our two dogs – Max and Little Bit – to the park each day around 3 p.m. so they can cavort with the locals’ and visitors’ canines. Well, I should say so that “Little Bit” can sit on the bench and be the “Sheriff” and Max can frolic with his best girl “Sister.”
So, what does all this have to do with business you might ask?
It has been through this daily event that I have met and come to know and appreciate the outstanding customer service of a local real estate agent – Sue Bentley. This year after many years of not looking at property to buy on the island we decided to investigate our options. (Some of you may recall a few years ago I had a really bad experience with an “island agent” and I have been reluctant to use one since.)
However, I am pleased to say that Sue Bentley has proven to be one of the most professional agents I have ever had the pleasure of working with.
Now, those of you that know me full well know that I am very selective about whom I will recommend when it comes to service awards. I am especially critical frankly of most all real estate agents because it has only taken a few “rotten” ones to spoil the barrel.
However, when you find an agent that is as professional and thorough in their research as Sue Bentley I believe they should be recognized and recommended and I am awarding her our prestigious “Golden Eagle” award for customer service.
