Customer reviews of Blake
Blake Hardy was very nice and patient! I was no piece of cake and he did not get exhausted with me but remained kind, courteous, and professional!
Anonymous, Fort Myers, FL
Blake H. just went above and beyond any norm for customer service and never acted like a sales person. He really did have my best interests in mind and that is what sales are all about.
