Feedback From the College Furniture Field: University Loft’s Sales Reps Check In

At University Loft, we like to stay in touch with our customer communities: college students, parents, educators, administrators and university housing furniture buyers. Often, the best way for us to take the pulse of how well we are doing in providing space planning and furniture solutions for student residences, is to listen to those on the ULoft team who spend most of their time on the front lines in the university environment: our sales reps and mobile showroom team.

Here are some recent dispatches from the college housing field:

Kathy Culbertson:

    “Great experience at the GHO conference at Kennesaw. University Loft was presented with an award for our quality furniture and our outstanding customer service. We are on track to provide the furniture for the next project as well.”

Jennifer Miller-Dudley:

“Got this feedback from Timothy Healy, the Director of Residence Life at Worcester Academy:

    ‘…you saved us by getting the school those bed ends so quickly. Thank you. Plus, the students and parents really like the new furniture that we bought for the lounges. It makes this place seem like home.’”

David Baker:

    “Students at Texas Southern University in Houston love their new living room furniture. In fact they will be placing another order soon due to other students wanting the same product.”

Tom Prather:

    “Great mobile showroom meeting at the University of Wisconsin – Platteville recently. Ken grilled hot dogs for 200 students and guests, lots of students and school staff toured the coach, and the president of the UWP Real Estate Foundation really appreciated the effort we put into it.”

Ken Oswald:

    “During a mobile showroom visit last week in North Carolina, three different students who saw the furniture that would go into renovated rooms said they would consider moving back on campus.”

Deborah Knotts:

    “For our mobile showroom visit last week at Johnson C. Smith University in Charlotte, we had 125 people (mostly students) on the coach giving us feedback on the furniture. It was so exciting and might have been our largest such event in some time. The students put us on Facebook and took pictures for their yearbook.”

It’s always gratifying to hear such good reports from the ULoft team members closest to our customers. How about you? Do you have a testimonial for us?
