What Our Customers Are Saying

Morning Kristin!

I could not have more positive things to report. Jenny was gushing about how easy and nice it was to work with you onsite. The ladies absolutely loved the P.A.C.K event, loved the food at Vic’s, and really really enjoyed Marcia and Kim’s homes.

Working with you has been absolutely wonderful! From the initial site, through the event, it has been completely stress free. And while I was so disappointed to not be there in person, I had no worries because of how confident I was with you helping us!

Kristin,

It was truly a pleasure to meet you last week in Savannah!  You were so helpful and accommodating with all our last minute requests and I can’t thank you enough for arranging the wonderful mansion. We lucked out with the beautiful weather, although  I am missing the warm weather, we have had rain all week. I hope that we can work together again in the near future!!

Warm regards,

I will look forward to you coming to Nashville! Thank you so very much!

You and your staff were awesome. It was a pleasure working with you from day one. I am so grateful that we ended up at the Mansion and that you were able to get the Georgia Ports tour for us. Mrs. Wilkes was a special treat and all of the tours were fabulous. What a great meeting we had due to your efforts!

Fondly,

Hi Kristin,

As you know I found you through referrals and I am so glad I did!  I don’t know how I would have arranged the activities without you!  Everything went smoothly from start to finish. All of your hard work did not go unnoticed. I appreciate your patience and all of the good advice you provided to me. All of the attendees enjoyed their tours expressing a good time and that’s the most important thing.

Thank you for making my job easier!

I look forward to working with you in the future.  I hope our paths cross again!

I don’t know where to begin. You were a dream to work with! You are so pleasant about all the last minute requests and changes and the details were handled flawlessly. You were great from beginning to end.

If you ever need a reference for another group, I’d be happy to provide one!

Well done!!

Hi Kristin,

It was great to see you again in Savannah as well.  We had a great meeting all around – from the Savannah location, to the great food(!), to the wonderful tours to the meeting sessions as well.

I truly appreciate all your help in arranging the tour and working on the Telfair Academy event.  I could not have done the Telfair event without your expertise and coordination – there is just no way it would have been the amazing event it was.  Everyone raved about the museum and the opportunity to socialize and network in the beautiful space.

Your knowledge of Savannah, professionalism, upbeat personality, timeliness and overall willingness to help with any questions I could throw at you was MUCH appreciated.

My recommendation to the planning team will be a return visit to Savannah in the future.  If/when we do come back, I’ll be in touch and will look forward to working with you again!

Best regards,

Heidi

We had a wonderful time with Dottie on Friday. Everyone loved her, she meshed with our personalities. Everyone loved Raleigh. He was so patient with our older people that needed extra help.

The lunch at Elizabeth's was amazing. Most of us were members of the "clean plate club". Thank you for giving us just what we wanted! You were a joy to work with!

Kristin,

Thank you very much for all your help with our event. From the very first email, you were an absolute professional; you listened as needed, gave suggestions when appropriate, understood our goal and worked so hard to make our event a success. Your efforts did not go unobserved and I truly appreciate the long hours you put in. We gave you a parking lot and you turned it into a fantastic Southern picnic, just the right amount of upscale without ruining the effect. I wish every DMC I worked with was as responsive, detail-oriented and pleasant as you. You have my vote anytime and it would be a pleasure to refer you if you are in need in the future – although I am absolutely positive that all your clients say the same! I hope our paths cross again.

All the best,

Thank you once again for the wonderful job you did in working with the Education Credit Union Council in making arrangements for our entertainment, decor and spouse tours for our recent annual conference.

I can't thank you enough for the wonderful job you did for us in Savannah! The decor, tours, Sunday breakfast, entertainment--all were fabulous. Randy Smith was a big hit and everyone enjoyed his music. We even had many dancers.

You were so very helpful with your many suggestions, professional in your knowledge and assistance, and delightful.

It was indeed a pleasure to work with you!

Kristin,

I wanted to sincerely thank you for all of your assistance in our meeting planning and helping to coordinate the teambuilding event. We got rave reviews and great feedback from everyone! The groups really got into the spirit of competition and the care package for the soldiers was really a nice surprise at the end. This is a note we received from one of our sales professionals:

Thanks to the LandOpt team for an awesome event in Savannah! Being the proud dad of a US Marine who served in Afghanistan brought special meaning to the scavenger hunt for me and I felt this was an awesome thing for LandOpt to do!! Hats off to you all!!!!

Our group fell in love with Savannah last week and we couldn’t have asked for a better outcome to our meeting. Truly everyone we encountered was so welcoming and helpful that it made my job easy. I certainly count you among those who were so generous with information and recommendations. I hope to have an opportunity to return to Savannah and work with you once again. On behalf of everyone here at LandOpt, thanks to you and Cayce for helping us to wow our customers and deliver a memorable meeting experience!

Hi Kristin,

Had my meeting today regarding our show in Savannah and I asked what everyone thought of the Civil War Tour and Dinner.  The word that came back was "excellent".  They loved the tour, and thought the food was great.

The business manager said he would do it again for another group if the opportunity came about.  That is high praise.

Thank you for all of your help and the great suggestions.

Kristin,

I just wanted to compliment you on the excellent job you did with the USTA Georgia board meeting this weekend. The people that took the ghost tour had a great time and I saw for myself how much fun the tennis was. Eric was such a gentleman as always. The dinner at SYC was just lovely, the food so good, it could not have been nicer, as well as your company at dinner. Everyone seemed pleased with their accomodations.

I think we may have spoiled these people :)

I will be sure to recommend you any time I have the opportunity.

Have a good weekend!
