Customer Recommendation For Linda Martin

To Whom It May Concern:

I recently purchased blinds from 3 Day Blinds and have been particularly pleased with the service provided by Linda Martin.

She was not only pleasant and efficient to work with but went out of her way to see that a technical problem with the blinds was corrected beyond my expectations.

I will be recommending Linda and 3 Day Blinds whenever I have the opportunity.

Thank you,

Client Photos from Designer Barbara Sloss: A 3 Day Blinds Window Makeover

Barbara Sloss, Design Consultant for 3 Day Blinds, specified a Flat Roman Shade in Savannah Titanium for her client. Cathedral Cornices added the perfect finishing touch.

Barbara Sloss, CID, 3 Day Blinds Design ConsultantAt 3 Day Blinds, we love it when clients share their photos with us, and allow us to see how our custom shades, shutters, blinds and drapes transform their homes!  We were especially excited when Barbara Sloss, CID (Certified Interior Designer), our Window Treatments Design Consultant who serves our clients in Hercules, Pinole and El Sobrante, CA sent us beautiful photos from a home makeover where she  managed the window covering update.  Considering all of the options available in our just-introduced Soft Roman Shade and Drapery Collections including the 168 hand-chosen fabrics and the variety of sizes we offer, virtually every product we make is one-of-a-kind!

“I was so excited when I saw the results of our work.  I love my career at 3 Day Blinds because it allows me to be creative, and to apply my product and technical knowledge as well.  My client truly felt that I delivered great value, she was impressed with our quick turnaround, gave rave reviews to our professional installers and she now feels that the 3 Day Blinds window treatments we designed are a core part of what brings the style to her home that she has always dreamed of.  It gives me great confidence to know that I represent a quality company with a sterling, 30-year reputation.”

We asked Barbara how she approaches such a challenging project.  “It starts with what the client is wishing for.  There are many aspects to window treatments, including aesthetic choices such as silhouette, scale, color story, pattern,  texture and how all of these components fit into the existing decor.  Then there are the practical considerations such as desired light control, insulation, privacy and how the window treatment operates,”  said Barbara.  “Each client has their own preferences.  It is my job to personalize the right solution from the more than 1000 products we offer, and to ensure that all of their needs are met.”

Customer Recommendation for Barbara Howell

Hello Barbara: 

Before I communicate my thoughts to you, let me tell you a bit about my history.  I have been the President of a customer satisfaction consulting firm for the past 6 years.  I visit companies and assess the level of service provided by their staffs and review systems and work flow and other aspects of service.  I know a little bit about service.

I hate Saturday appointments; I work all week and that’s my private time.  I don’t like folks in my home that I don’t know; sometimes it necessary but I dread it.  Those windows of time that we are given 12p-4p are difficult as my experience is that the vendor arrives at 3:45p and I have used up ½ of my day waiting and the other half while they do the work.  Well all of that went out the window when it came to the service provided by you on behalf of 3-Day Blinds.

You showed up exactly at 12:30p which was the start of the time quoted to me.  Your words were warm, kind, and friendly.  At no point in time did I feel that a vendor, or stranger was in my home, instead I felt like I was having a visit from a friend.  Often times vendors are so friendly that they are incompetent, or chat away your day.  Not you Barbara, you were friendly and extremely professional at the same time-what a combination. 

You allowed me to set the stage for our work together, I wanted to know my options and then I wanted to factor in your expertise and suggestions.  It worked out beautifully; you measured 10-12 windows in no time flat.  It was clear that you know your business. 

I felt like you gave me a good price; I was very disappointed when my credit was not approved.  Thank God I have money and resources so that we could consummate the deal.  You were so diplomatic and compassionate during the denial; I have a high credit score and the denial could have been more upsetting, but I trust God too much for that.

 Well Barbara, I can only say thank you so much.  I will be buying a mansion in the near future and guess who’s doing my blinds.

Thank you kindly,
