Last Laugh: MJ Chanski

Love For Sale

An out-of-work newlywed took a temporary job in jewelry sales. After three days of intensive training, the sales manager told him to go home and practice his pitch on his wife. The next morning, the manager asked the novice how he made out. “Well,” the man began, “I did what you said, and after I finished, I asked her if she would buy the ring from me. She said ‘Yes.’ Then I asked her why. She replied, ‘Because I love you.”

“When you sell diamonds, you become a friend, a confidant, even a psychologist!” says MJ Chanski, manager of Hannoush Jewelers in Rutland, VT. Chanski has bachelor’s degrees in professional writing and publications and in management, but she claims that neither has taught her as much as 12 years in the hospitality industry did. “The ability to read your customers and anticipate their needs in the first few moments is nothing you can learn in a book.” In her spare time, she takes GIA courses online, loves her boyfriend, Bob, and takes care her “children,” a boxer named Vito and an American bulldog named Ellie Mae.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Gone Fishin’ (Thanks to Wilkerson)

Whether you want to go fishing — or enjoy some of the other good things life has to offer — you can take a cue from Jim Adair and choose Wilkerson to run your retirement sale. After 38 years in business, Adair decided it was time to enjoy some free time. His Missoula, Montana store, Adair Jewelers, will stay in business but without him at the helm. It was the perfect opportunity to call in the experts in retirement sales. Adair says he spoke to a lot of people who have done retirement sales to help him make his decision and he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson seemed to have the best set up, the best organization, the most current marketing of any of them,” he says. “If you want to run a successful sale, you have too much money on the line to be screwing around with trying to do it yourself.”
