“Every relationship I establish with customers is based on trust. I understand that sometimes customers aren’t quite sure what they need or want or want. Drawing out the details, I listen and reflect before offering solutions that will genuinely benefit the customer. Following up to execute the plan, I ensure we deliver excellent service and outstanding results.”~ Jake Repanshek
