My name is Ann Marie Williams-Gray and I'm a television producer in NYC and LA with a very hectic schedule. Recently I moved to Edgewater, NJ and I needed to get blinds/window treatments for our town home and I was dreading the process. To say the least buying, hanging and getting continued maintenance for new blinds can be quite a difficult and time consuming project that can cost you tons of money, if you don't get the right people to do the job. I made a few calls and out of everyone I spoke with it was Andy at The Blind Spot that I decided to go with and it was one of the best design decisions I've ever made. With one call he was at my place within two days, brought a great selections of quality blinds to choose from and easily talked me through the process to make sure I made the best and most cost efficient decision that worked for our home. And within two weeks my beautiful new, energy efficient blinds were installed. They are easy to operate and everyone absolutely loves them. I highly endorse and recommend Andy and his company,The Blind Spot, for he highly exceeded my expectations on all levels. He is knowledgeable, fast and he will work with you to make sure you can stay within your budget. In addition, I also loved that Andy installed the blinds himself. He is extremely vested in his company and passionate about his work. No matter how big or small the project, If you need blinds, you have to call Andy at The Blind Spot. He will make your next window treatment experience easy, efficient and exceptional! Thank you very much Andy at The Blind Spot for your amazing work! We are very HAPPY!

"From the first time I spoke with Andy of The Blind Spot, I just knew I’d be happy with his work. Andy helped me determine what types of blinds I needed for each room, making the entire process easy and fun. The estimate was reasonable and precise, with no hidden charges. The blinds came in when promised, and the installation was quick and problem-free. I’m still thrilled with the blinds and how nicely they complement the décor of each room. Recently when one of the blinds malfunctioned, Andy assured me that, even after several years, it was still under the manufacturer’s warranty. He sent me a shipping box, making it very easy to send the blind back for repair. Within a few weeks the defective blind was repaired and shipped back to me, and at the same time upgraded to a better mechanism. Thanks, Andy, for your professionalism, dedication and attention to detail. I couldn’t be more happy with the blinds you recommended, as well as your outstanding work ethic." Thank you again!

I wanted to thank you again for your excellent service, from your professionalism in helping me to select the best blinds for my apartment, to your prompt and thorough communication throughout the ordering process, to your expertise in installing the blinds. Every aspect of the transaction went perfectly! You nailed all the little things that make for excellent customer service- you were always on time, you quickly identified our needs and didn't pressure me to upgrade, your quotes and communications were clear, and the blinds were installed expertly. Best of all, you really wowed my young sons by making a special rubber band ball with the packing materials! I am very happy with our new blinds and I would not hesitate to recommend you to others.

From the first time we used the services of the Blind Spot, we were greeted with warmth and nothing short of complete professionalism. Nowadays it is very difficult to find service companies that respect the client. My gratitude goes to Andy for everything he has done for us in times of need. His prompt response to our calls will be the reason we use his services when we move into our next home. We have done business with Andy for five years and our experiences with his company are always consistent.

Thank you Andy!

Dear Andy:

We at DiGabriele, McNulty, Campanella & Co., LLC would like to say thank you for all the beautiful work at our new building. You were very nice and helpful to all of our needs and the prices were the best all around. We thought that it felt personal to us that you own the business but still take the time out to do all of the installing yourself. We would definitely use you guys again in the future for business and personal use.

Thanks again,

The first time we called, "The Blind Spot" around 1988, Andy came & put up blinds on our porch. He was a young man just starting out. His manner was professional and his work excellent. Over the years we have had him back to take care of our Kitchen and Family rooms. Recently, he was back to put in new blinds on the porch, again! - and they look great. If you need blinds, call Andy - you'll be glad that you did -

Just wanted you to know how pleased I am with my blinds. The patterned Vertical Blinds go so well with the surroundings and is very pleasant to the eye. Your wonderful personality, product presentation and professionalism from start to finish was such a pleasure. I will be happy to recommend you to others and will be in touch if I decide to pursue another project. Thank you again for a job - well done!!

Andy was a pleasure to work with! He was always punctual and friendly. He did a great job installing our blinds. We first had him install blinds in our living and dining rooms and then had him come back to do our family room. With the family room, we were unsure what size blinds to use, Andy gave us his opinion and they look great! He also took all his garbage away which I appreciated.
Thanks, Andy!

Hi Andy,

I am so pleased with my new Applause blinds. They look fantastic and really do help with keeping the rooms warmer.

Best of all was the great job you did on the installation. You're so clean, and I do love a fussy contractor! Thanks so much for putting the existing drapes and curtains back up for me, I really appreciate your doing that.

I'm looking forward to the arrival of the Woven Wood Bamboo Blinds for the sun room. Your input was really a big help in helping me make a choice.

Thanks again for all your help! Happy Holidays!

Dear Andy,

I can't say enough about you and your company. My windows look great and you made me extremely happy. You can be certain that I will pass your name and company on to family and friends. Thanks so much for your very punctual and professional service. It has been a pleasure doing business with you and once again, Andy thanks for a fabulous job.

Hi Andy,

I wanted to send you a note to thank you for installing beautiful plantation shutters in our new home. Purchasing shutters was a big decision for my husband and I due to their cost. I did shop around and you beat or matched your competition's estimates. You were both honest and up front about the cost and the process. In addition, you had estimated approximately 3 weeks for installation while others quoted 6 weeks. What a wonderful surprise when you called me just a week later and offered to come the very next day to install the shutters when they had arrived earlier than anticipated! You were not only punctual, you were actually early which was such a refreshing change from the many contractors I have been dealing with along the way. Thank you for being so professional, and for leaving my house just the way you had found it after the job was complete. It was a pleasure working with you and now that the shutters are in, my husband and I have no regrets. They are absolutely gorgeous and bring such a unique distinction to our home. I am very confident to refer my friends and family to you. I truly like dealing with the owner of a family run company-it is a fantastic way to do business! Thank you!

Elena Ruocco

Thanks you so much for the great job you did in helping me to select the blinds for my bedroom. As you know, I found it difficult to find the right product for that wall of windows. Your suggestion was outstanding, and it could not look better.

I also greatly appreciated the fact that you were so reliable in every aspect of your service. You were timely, respected my property, and exceedingly neat. With all of the work you had to do to install the blinds, you left “no trace” except the beautiful blinds that now hang in my bedroom. Thanks again for everything. Please put me on the top of your list of satisfied customers and one who would be more than pleased to recommend you to others.

Carla DeWitt

Thank you very much for many years of great service. You have always ranked #1 in your product, service, and professional behavior. With all the contractors that I have dealt with in the past years, you have been the best. You arrive at the proper time, and take the correct measurements. Once you receive the merchandise, you schedule a time to return and install.

Wanda

We just wanted to send an email to thank you for the beautiful blinds you installed. It is truly a pleasure (and a rarity these days) to work with such a reliable, timely, and honest person. We look forward to having you help on any future installations.

Thanks again and happy New Year to you and your family.

Jonathan & Lisa Ramos

Just a few words of thanks for the great job you recently provided with our new blinds. After dealing with many contractors for our remodeling project it was such a shock when you immediately returned my initial call, showed up when you said you would, gave an accurate time when you would return for installation, and did a proper neat installation. What a tremendous concept! You should teach that to other independents. We will certainly recommend you to others.

Ed

I wanted to say a big THANK YOU for being so wonderful to work with, you found us exactly what we needed for the twins rooms, you were friendly and gave us a great deal, and what can I say about the turn around time on this job, you're absolutely fantastic!

Please be sure to leave Chelsea one of your business cards for me to carry in my wallet, because I will recommend you to everyone I run across looking for window treatments.
Again, thank you for being such a great guy to work with, Albert and I both appreciate you!

As usual, you did a great job, and I ended up with new shades when all I expected were new strings. Everything looks great, and it's always just nice to see your friendly face. You are permanently part of my "maintenance" family!

Carol Siegel

Andy,
Ray and I left early Friday morning for a business trip. I couldn't wait to get home to see the new shutters. My daughter said they were great and she was so right. You did it again, they are wonderful. Now we have to work on the front windows.
Thanks for the great job!!

Andy,
we just want to express our complete satisfaction with the job you did in our condo apt. The service, professionalism,blinds choices and price --1st class !

Sue and Jim Reda

My wife and I are very pleased with the high quality of the planning and ultimate work you did to equip our home with a large set of room-darkening blinds. You were very careful in developing the specifications, fully informed us of what we could and could not expect from the system, and made excellent suggestions to custom-redesign the system for maximum utility to us. Your follow-up to make sure we were satisfied was also impressive. You could give lessons to many of the local contractors in our area on how to develop and hold a good customer.

I look forward to your next visit to complete your latest design refinement and would highly recommend you to anyone contemplating new window treatments in our locale.

Good wishes and good luck to you in building your business.

Lawrence M. Powers

I am writing to thank you personally for the excellent care you have taken of us regarding the window treatments in our new house.

Deciding on what to do with each of our 30-odd windows was no easy task. Your patience, knowledge, and suggestions were very welcome, and they made the difference between what we would have achieved by ourselves and the spectacular look we now have each time we come home!

Also, in today's environment, finding a true professional who does the job on time and within budget is rare. Thank you for making a difficult task very easy and pleasurable. Feel free to use us a reference anytime.

Dr. Dinjer Shefki

We are pleased to offer this letter of recommendation for Mr. Andy Gorstein of The Blind Spot. After entertaining about four different proposals from different companies for window treatments, we chose The Blind Spot. We were impressed with Andy's attention to detail in his presentation of our options. He was courteous and came prepared with all of the information we needed in order to make an intelligent decision. He took a few hours to go over the different Hunter Douglas products and color options and explained the advantages and disadvantages of each of the styles. We ordered treatments for more than 30 windows that included styles such as Silhouette, Vignette, Top Down Bottom Up, and a few more. On top of the great service, Andy provided us the best price!

When placing the order, Andy informed us that delivery would be about 2 weeks. Almost exactly 2 weeks later, our order was in, and Andy immediately scheduled an appointment to perform the installation. Andy came and installed all of the window treatments himself in a very timely manner. Andy unpacked everything and removed all of the packing materials. We are extremely happy with the job that Andy did for us and we would highly recommend him.

John and Maria Stewart

I wanted to tell you I am so well pleased with the Composite Wood Blinds. You are the nicest person to deal with. You have the personality and caring ways, you mean to please. I thank you for putting up my curtain rods and valances in addition to the blinds even though that was not in your schedule to do, as I said you care. I'll call you about the other blinds soon. I certainly will recommend you to others. Thanks again Andy, you have made a senior happy!

On behalf of all the Fair Lawn Senior Center participants I would like to thank you for the excellent job you did installing the new blinds at the Senior Center. I was pleased with the whole process from quoting us a competitive price, quick delivery and professional installation. You are a pleasure to deal with and we will gladly recommend you to others. I am delighted to pass thanks along to you from the seniors and from me personally. We look forward to working with you again in the future.

Karin Hodos, Director

Borough of Fair Lawn Senior Center

I just wanted to thank you for all you help with regards to repairing our blinds. Your prompt, courteous and professional service was greatly appreciated. My only regret is that you were not the original dealerI purchased the blinds from. Your customer service is outstanding and after all is said and done that is the most important aspect to the customer. Best wishes for continued success in your business.

Tammy Schoffelen

I wanted to thank you for the wonderful job you did with the ultrasonic cleaning to our Silhouettes. The Silhouettes date back to 1999 and the large one in our kitchen had a large stain and was discolored. The shade now looks like new and you saved me the substantial cost of replacing the shade. You are always reliable and honest and you are the only one I would call for any window treatments and cleaning.

Melissa I.

Wayne, NJ

I just wanted to thank you for your recent service call. Our silhouete blinds were first installed in late 1996 and we had them cleaned by you in early 2011. Well, 15 years later these silhouete blinds look as good as new. We were most impressed! We have been doing business together for over 15 years and your customer service is excellent. Phone calls and e-mails are always returned promptly and efficiently. Your pricing is very reasonable in comparison to your many competitors.

We look forward to doing business with you for the next 15 years and if you need any recommendations, then please count on us!

Neil Taylor

I've been slow to get around to sending you this email, but I do want to take the time to say thank you for the great job you did cleaning our blinds! They look great and smell wonderful.
It was great to have the opportunity to work with someone as professional, polite, punctual and pleasant as you! Seriously, thanks so much.

and, P.S.: that little part you ordered for the handle mechanism came in just a few days after you delivered the blinds. Great follow through -- I really appreciate it!

Judie Christopher

I just wanted to let you know how pleased I was with the cleaning of my blinds. It was such a relief to see that you were able to remove all those stains and the cat hair.. I honestly didn't think that they would have looked this GREAT!! It's practically new :). You will definitely be hearing from me again. Thank you so much and I love the quick turn around. :)
