Sue's Reviews

FEEDBACK FROM SUE'S CLIENTS:

Holy moly!! Call them. Bring them into your life. Bring them to save you from closet sadness. Sue Trainor was beyond amazing, completely personable, and totally professional. She was on time, easy to talk to about what we wanted, flexible when we needed her to be, and super great in general. The quality of the construction, the efficiency of the installers, and the entire experience was excellent. Go. Go now. Go quickly. Hooray for Closet Works!! Kristen M. — Yelp Review


This review is long over due. Sue Trainor from closet works came out and get us some suggestions for 2 closets and then sent an estimate and proposal/designs. They were just fabulous. She really listened to me and every time I look at our closets, I am very happy. It's been probably about a year since we had them done, and I love them. They look really pretty. They were affordable too. Any money I spent was worth the lack of closet aggrevation I had prior to stuff falling out of it every time. They have made our life easier and helped turn chaos into more order. I highly recommend this company and especially Sue. It was a great experience. Also, I couldn't believe how quick the team installed our two closets. It was just a few hours if that! I was shocked at the speed. Again ask for Sue T. Jim C. — Yelp Review


Mrs Trainor, the designer, was professional and knowledgeable about what would work best while ensuring that I maximized my closet spaces based upon what I wanted. She was good at explaining the design process and patiently revised the plan as I made small changes. The installers showed up and completed the job on time with professionalism and pleasantness.

This was my third time using Closet Works - and Sue Trainor as the designer. We moved and needed additional storage in our new "downsized' home so back to Sue's drawing board. They know their products and the designs have given me much more storage space- really excellent experience overall. (A side note- I used California Closets for our Florida condo because Closet Works is local and found them to be of lesser quality and I had to lead the designer they sent through the process) Closet Works is first rate!

Sue Trainor at Closet Works did (as still is doing) a terrific job in dsign and implementation. She works so hard to listen and think about your needs and provide creative solutions. She stands by results and makes herself available pretty much any hour, it seems. She's been part of multiple projects and the end results are always terrific. And she's thoughtful, personable and not at all salesperson-like. Thanks, Sue! Jeffrey F. — Yelp Review

Well designed closets. Design consultant Sue made good design ideas. Even after three years, when there were some repairs, it was taken care of as soon as possible. Divakaran A. — Google Review
