Why Nick?

Nick has the heart of an ambassador and walks the talk of customer experience. True exceptional customer service doesn’t stop at the business threshold. “Replacing a customer’s lost card? That’s not exceptional. That’s expected…. Helping someone find a veterinarian on a Saturday? Pumping a customer’s gas that you ran into during a Downeast snowstorm? Replacing someone’s debit card in the grocery store line? That’s exceptional. He gets to know his customers. He makes connections, he really listens, and then he helps to make dreams happen, whatever they may be.
