Nothing like going back Home - Mt. Hood Oregon
Life is short I want to spend each day planning trips for people who enjoy my style of consulting which includes a honest recommendation of what fits you. I love to discuss what research you have done so far, diffuse the data and match you with a unique experience which is not cookie cutter like everyone else. All I ask is mutual respect of returning phone calls, and honest feed back of likes and dislikes and discussion about fair and honest pricing and value.
I try and always explain the difference between value and price. I feel great about my track record with a 99% customer satisfaction. I would love to meet you and chat about what is important to you in vacation planning and if my style does not fit- I have some great team mates each with their own distinct personalities who may be the perfect match
With over four decades in the travel industry I learned You can't Google experience. The reality is "Travel is not between places, It's between people." This ideology is how I approach each travel request, no matter how big or small. It is about the person and the experience you need for that particular trip. You cannot get that level of commitment, service or responsiveness from the Internet.
My moral compass
My moral compass is founded on strict adherence to guiding principals:
- Offer vacation products of the highest caliber
- Never compromise superior customer service
These principals have brought national recognition for service and products, leading the way for the highest of industry recognition and awards year after year. In addition I and my team travel extensively so we can make expert recommendations. I learn the culture, find opportunities to enhance my clients travel experience and create custom packages which uniquely fit each interest.
Giving back to the community is paramount for me and helping other succeed. I am active in volunteerism where ever I travel.
