He was kind enough to send a message about courses, available items and explaining the how’s, what and when. He answered all of my questions promptly, about my Course details and what my options were; since Without any hesitation, Mike was very efficient and quick updated me on all AOY have to offer me. In this day and age, it’s difficult to find people who genuinely care about real customer service. It is pleasantly apparent to me, that you have someone who does, in Mike!”
