What I’ve Learned: Michelle Shetler & Kelly Wade Fry



You must manage customer expectations.

Managing customer expectations is one of the most important lessons we have learned to make, and keep, our customers happy. And happy clients are clients forever! One of the keys is really listening to what the customer wants. The other is to under-promise and over-deliver. We do not make promises that we cannot keep. By knowing our limits and being honest about them, we can deliver quality results without any setbacks to the customer. This is especially important when setting deadlines with our customers. It is always best to give a bit of wiggle room to avoid any customer disappointment.

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
