Client Spotlight - Hubbell Realty

Hubbell Realty recently celebrated Customer Service Week. This organization has a great reputation and breaks down its service success to four key components:

  1. Service - Make serving others their number one priority. 
  2. Attitude - Choose your attitude. A shining attitude is contagious around customers and shows the quality of your work.
  3. Consistency - Customers return because they liked what happened last time. Set high service standards and live them every day. 
  4. Teamwork - Commit to teamwork. Look for ways to make each other look good. In the end, everything everyone does ends up in front of the customer.

A special thanks to Hubbell for allowing ATW to be part of their team and for sharing their service passion. The following pictures highlight the team activity ATW recently facilitated with them.
