RISMEDIA, March 9, 2010—With 130 agents conducting over $200 million of business a year, David Binkowski, broker/owner of Prudential Real Estate of the Rockies, needed a sign company that could keep pace with his real estate business.
“When we joined the Prudential family of companies in October 2009, our local sign company wasn’t willing to stick with us through the transition,” says Binkowski. That’s when Lowen Sign Company entered the picture, giving Binkowski everything he was looking for in a signage company.
“I spent a lot of time searching and checking with different sign companies, and I always got the quickest response with the specific information I was looking for from Lowen Sign,” he says. While a lot of companies withheld pertinent information and kept him guessing, Lowen Sign has been straightforward and to the point since the beginning.
From the start, Binkowski says he has been impressed with the quality of service Lowen Sign has provided as well as the price of their products. “Their service has been excellent since day one,” says Binkowski, “and I have found it more efficient to work with Lowen Sign than using a local company—they are based in Kansas.”
The entire process—from ordering signs to receiving proofs and pricing—has been a piece of cake for Binkowski and his entire team. “Every time we have placed an order, our items arrive wrapped up and are always in good condition and ready to be used,” he explains.
While the quick turnaround is just one of the benefits of working with Lowen Sign, Binkowski notes that the company’s past experience working with the Prudential Real Estate brand has proven to be a huge advantage as well.
“Since Lowen Sign has worked with Prudential in the past, they know all of Prudential’s specifications,” says Binkowski, which serves as a huge time saver when placing an order. Time management is crucial, especially in today’s market, and Lowen Sign makes sure Binkowski receives his product faster, more efficiently and less expensively than many local companies.
In addition to top-of-the-line service, Lowen Sign offers a range of products, all of which are versatile and long-lasting. The process the company has in place in which they paint the sign after they drill the holes is just one method that enables their products to stand out from the rest. “Drilling the holes before applying the paint allows for their signs to hold up and last longer than those of other sign company’s,” he says.
According to Ted Crank, manager of Brand Standards at Lowen, the process Binkowski refers to is “a powder-coating finish, in which all surfaces are coated, including the edges and inside the holes. This helps prevent rust and gives Lowen signs a smooth, porcelain-like finish that is attractive, durable, and safe to handle.”
With a process that works in addition to creating durable signs with a quick turnaround period, Lowen Sign has given Binkowski and the entire team at Prudential Real Estate of the Rockies the tools they need to stand out in today’s real estate industry.
