We want to take a moment during this busy time of year to reflect and give thanks. First of all, thank you to all of you, our loyal customers, for making 2010 a successful year for Master’s Craft. While the recession has been challenging and things have not been easy, we are thankful that we are still here, and we are grateful to each and every one of you who entrusted your home to us. We are quite busy now and look forward to the projects we have scheduled for the New Year.
Through the support and loyalty of our employees, clients, families, and friends, we are becoming one of the premier kitchen and bath remodeling companies in Montgomery County and Bucks County, PA. Over the last two years, approximately 70% of our business has come from repeat clients or from direct referrals of previous clients. We are very proud and yet humbled by that. We recognize that you, our friends and clients, are an integral part of our success.
We also want to give thanks for the gift of Christmas and the reason we celebrate the holiday–our Lord Jesus Christ. Without his grace, who knows where we would be.
If a new kitchen, bathroom or addition is on your wish-list this year, contact us and we’ll be honored to help you design and create the room of your dreams.
Merry Christmas and a Very Happy New Year from our family to yours!!!
