I cannot say enough GOOD THINGS about the Glendale Designs team! They're responsive, thorough and just great to work with. BuyChimes has worked with Glendale through numerous website redesigns over the years. They're consistently fresh and honest in their approach to site design and customization. I appreciate their willingness to kindly suggest a better solution at the outset of a functionality conversation - rather than investing resources (time, energy, money) into an approach that has little chance of success. Would heartily recommend!
