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.

Thinking of Liquidating? Wilkerson’s Got You Covered

Bil Holehan, the manager of Julianna’s Fine Jewelry in Corte Madera, Calif., decided to go on to the next chapter of his life when the store’s owner and namesake told him she was set to retire. Before they left, Holehan says they decided to liquidate some of the store’s aging inventory. They chose Wilkerson for the sale. Why? “Friends had done their sales with Wilkerson and they were very satisfied,” says Holehan. He’d enthusiastically recommend Wilkerson to anyone looking to stage a liquidation or going-out-of-business sale. “There were no surprises,” he says. “They were very professional in their assessment of our store, what we could expect from the sale and they were very detailed in their projections. They were pretty much on the money.”
