“We have been working with Mitchell for the past 2 ½ years, and I just wanted to pass on what a good job he does. I work with service providers on a daily basis, and most of the time I feel like I have to jump through hoops to get anything done quickly. However, Mitchell almost always answers my calls and if I do get voicemail he calls me back within the hour. I can’t say how much I appreciate being able to get in touch with him as soon as I have issues or questions. We have been really pleased with the progress of our ponds, and the size and health of our fish. Mitchell seems to really know his stuff, and I don’t feel the need to do extra research on him recommendations after I get off the phone. That’s worth a lot to me as well!”
