"Thank you Deon for your friendliness and professionalism. You introduced yourself and greeted me with a smile, and you answered all my questions. You took careful consideration of my plants and shrubs, making sure not to damage anything. You also tried your best to take care of problem areas even though I had a lot of things in the way of you reaching those areas. I appreciate you being so thorough in those difficult spots. Alterra should be very proud to have Deon as an employee. I wish all my service calls for home needs were as positive as the experience I have had with Alterra. Many Thanks!"
