Meet Ashleigh Neitzel
Originally from northern Ohio, Ashleigh Neitzel made the move to North Carolina in 2007 to follow her passion and pursue a career in interior design. She holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Interior Architecture from The University of North Carolina at Greensboro. She is experienced in many facets of design from commercial renovation, residential design to product design, from which she was able to discover her true passion for residential interior design.
Her expertise in space planning, accessorizing and blending of styles, fabrics and color gives Ashleigh the innate ability to successfully design a home that expresses her clients’ unique style and lifestyle. She believes inspiration surrounds us through nature, art and everyday life and she enjoys helping her clients find that once piece that speaks to them. “There is nothing I enjoy more that helping my client achieve the home they’ve always dreamed of.”
When Ashleigh is not working she enjoys refurbishing vintage furniture to give a modern–day look. She also enjoys spending time with family, friends and her adorable rat terrier, Leila, exploring the beautiful mountains and oceans that North Carolina has to offer.
This past Saturday was our first visit to your store. We live in Southern Pines and after reviewing your website decided to drive up for the day and browse. We were pleasantly greeted at the information desk and shortly Ashleigh introduced herself self to us. She immediately set a very positive tone with us, not being pushy or being hurried with us. She listened to what our furniture interests & styles were and gave us insights as to where to start our tour of the buildings.
We were not even sure if we were going to buy anything that day, but instead of just handing us a map and pointing us in a direction to start Ashleigh showed us the way to the fourth floor area she thought we should start. Once there she continued to give us hints and ideas on the furnishings we might be interested in, set us up with the app on our phone, answered a few more of our questions then allowed us time to "wander around".
We actually made a couple of purchases and, again, Ashleigh, made the whole process very easy for us and gave us exact information on how and when our purchase would delivered to us. It was one of the best experiences we have ever had shopping for furniture, or any big ticket item for that matter. It impressed us that with such a big operation the personal touch was always there from your entire staff, but especially from Ashleigh.
Ashleigh is a big reason why we will come back and buy again! We feel like we found someone who really took the time to get to know us and guide us in the right direction while all the time feeling like her "getting a sale" was the last thing on her list with us. Very impressed with the customer service! That is saying a lot from someone who has been in the food service field for over 30 years and has a longtime friend in the furniture business!
So many times (and we well know) customers will tell you the not so good experience they encountered so we thought it would be a nice change to let you know the good! keep up the customer service and make sure you give Ashleigh a BIG High
