affinity-stoneworks-best-of-houzz-2017-badgeHouzz has chosen Affinity Stoneworks for the prestigious “Best of Houzz” award in 2017 for Customer Service.

The Houzz community is comprised of more than 40 million monthly unique users, and Affinity Stoneworks was singled out from among more than one million active home building, remodeling, and design industry companies.

Customer Service honors were determined by a variety of factors, including the number and quality of client reviews a professional received in 2016.

“Experience, asking the right questions, listening carefully and paying attention to detail in order to blend the right materials, technologies and craft skills, are fundamental elements of delivering top-notch customer service,” says Affinity Stoneworks President Elizabeth Ellsworth. “Ultimately, however, all of those fundamentals have to be based upon the real belief that every customer deserves our very best. That belief, that commitment, is shared by every member of the Affinity team. For the last 20 years, delivering exceptional customer service is a matter of personal and professional integrity.”

Liza Hausman, vice president of industry marketing for Houzz said: “We’re delighted to recognize Affinity Stoneworks among our “Best Of” professionals as judged by our community of homeowners and design enthusiasts who are actively remodeling and decorating their homes.”

We at Affinity Stoneworks are thrilled to have received hundreds of these thank you notes and letters from our customers. In fact, we store the notes and letters in a binder in our showroom for all of our potential clients to peruse. When they finish reading the thank you notes, it affirms the fact that they will have an enjoyable experience working with us.

Recently, we produced a brochure compiled from the letters and photography of these projects. The photos were shot by Atlanta-based photographer, Bill Anderson.

Here’s a few excerpts from the brochure:

“We just wanted to thank you for doing such a wonderful job with our kitchen remodel and gorgeous new countertops. Everyone at Affinity was so knowledgeable, helpful, and attentive to all the details. We couldn’t be happier and we will certainly recommend you to everyone. Thanks again! ”— R.A. Johns Creek 

“Your reputation and your ability to understand all of my goals was why I chose Affinity to provide a complete solution. Now that my project is done, I have to let you know how much I absolutely love my new kitchen! I will definitely call you for our next project”—J.K. Buckhead
