On any given Friday if you come into Pilch & Reed you can expect to be met at the door by the world’s best greeter. Our office mascot, Bo, gets to come to work with Jennifer on Fridays and takes her job as door greeter very seriously. She enjoys meeting our clients and is always on her best behavior but loves attention so pardon her begging!
Bo enjoys long walks in the park, treats and belly rubs (both on and off the job!)
Great professionalism, quality, value and responsiveness.
Jennifer has done a great job for me. She goes out of her way to get the answers I need and and is very knowledgeable. She is an asset to my business.
Excellent and great service.
