  • Dear Mr. Strobel,

    The TSS 2021 Gala & Auction in November was certainly one to remember. Our gala committee, led by chair Theresa LaViola, pivoted once again this year and threw a magical indoor/outdoor event that, according to all who attended, was an unqualified success.

    We are so grateful for the role you played in making that happen. The gala auction has a reputation for unique items and lively bidding and your donation, a $350 gift certificate and copies of Stuffing Cotton, was the perfect addition to the fun. Thank you also for your $250 gala sponsorship!

    I hope you take pride in knowing that the proceeds from your donation truly end up in the hands and hearts of children. Whether books, playground toys, smart and caring teachers, art supplies, or science equipment, a successful event means all the myriad elements of a TSS education remain available to our kids.

    Our school family is so strong, and that sense of committed community was evident on November 12. Thank you for supporting The Salisbury School and for helping continue the proud tradition of exceptional education on the Eastern Shore.

    Thank you again.

    -Lois Colaprete, The Salisbury School
  • Mr. Mike Strobel,

    The 9400 condominium association wants to acknowledge the excellent job that Mike’s Carpet Connection did on our carpeting and lobby tiling project this winter. We want to thank you for your professionalism and cooperation with the 9400 Board and our management staff.

    Our building appearance has been significantly upgraded. Much credit goes to Mike’s Carpet Connection and your team members for their cooperation and ongoing communications efforts throughout the project. It was a major effort to complete 20 floors in the timeframe we had.

    Your project supervisor Ryan Wood consistently delivered professional workmanship and full cooperation with us in a very timely manner. We greatly appreciate the way he worked with Ken Mullinix, our Maintenance Manager, on a daily basis. Your carpet foreman, Russ Law was also professional and cooperative.

    From the beginning of this project, your company delivered an organized and excellent plan of execution. And you kept us fully apprised of any changes throughout the project. This was extremely critical as all of our owners wanted to know the status of the job as we went through the process. Russ and Ryan are excellent communicators and both are very good at following through on the detail involved in such a project.

    At the conclusion of the project when we did our final walkthrough with you, Russ and Ryan, your team was very willing to make final adjustments and minor fixes as requested by us at 9400.

    In summary, we want to thank Mike’s Carpet Connection and particularly Ryan for the excellent performance. Your company delivers well organized, quality products and workmanship. We want to thank you again and we will highly recommend your company and staff for carpet and tile work in the greater Ocean City Maryland area.

  • Dear Mike’s Flooring & Design Center,

    I would like to take this opportunity to extend my sincere gratitude for Mike’s Flooring & Design Center’s contribution to the fundraiser for the family of Corporal Keith Heacook. Your generous gift will have a major impact on those affected most by his untimely passing.

  • Hello Mike,

    We finally made it back down to the beach after you guys had installed the new floor. It looks just great and we wanted to thank you for your personal attention in taking good care of us.

    Looking forward to working with you again!

  • Steve,

    Wanted to let you know that we are very happy with our flooring! The installation crew’s workmanship exceeded my expectations!

    -Tim & Dawn Diehm
  • Lisa,
    Just wanted to say thanks for the great job you and the folks at Mikes Flooring and Design Center did in the selection and installation of our elegant powered shades in our ocean-front condo.  We are repeat customers, and highly recommend you to our friends and family members

  • The carpet installation in our newly purchased house greatly exceeded our expectations. This was the best experience we have had with the installation of carpet in any home we have owned.  I would recommend Mike’s Flooring & Design Center for any carpet installation from a single room to an entire house as we have done.

  • Mike,

    During the recent tropical storm, Isaisa, we had luxury vinyl plank installed from Mike’s, throughout most of our home. The 4 man crew showed up early, in the middle of a tornado warning, and worked steadily, even with a 30 min. power outage. They were finished by early afternoon. The men were professional, respectful, efficient and expert at their jobs. We can’t say enough about them.

    Kenny was a great help with the initial process and Dennis answered more questions we had when setting up the scheduling.

    The flooring looks wonderful and we had a great experience working with everyone involved.

    Thank you so much. You have a wonderful, reliable business.

    -George and Candi Combs
  • We are returning customers who have always been pleased with the service and quality of goods purchased and installed from Mike’s Flooring and Design Center.

    Just wanted to thank you and the installers for the great service recently provided. The installers did an outstanding job. They even cleaned up before they left!

    Happy customers will always return and let their friends know about their experience.

    We’ll be back!

    -Lillian and Mike
  • We had Mike’s install flooring 9 years ago and were so pleased with their tile work that we contracted them again.

    And once again, we are VERY pleased with the results!

    ALL of the staff are friendly and professional!

  • Dear Mr. McCann:

    I am writing to express my total agreement with your Editorial in last week’s Coastal Point wherein you noted the importance of supporting small businesses. Supporting local businesses is good for our local economy and a smart way for us to purchase products and services.

    I would also like to point out that supporting local businesses is quite often even best for us as consumers. I’d like to give an example of a wonderful experience we recently had when purchasing carpet at Mike’s Carpet Connection in Fenwick Island. We purchased carpet after shopping for estimates. Box stores were within $100 of Mike’s price but we decided to buy from Mike, a local small business.

    Through no fault of Mike’s there were serious problems with the carpet that was purchased from a leading carpet manufacturer, twice! I do not want to get into specifics but suffice it to say Mike personally went way above and beyond basic customer service to ensure our satisfaction. And we have been satisfied! We believe that had we purchased the carpet from a box store and experienced any problem we would not have the good ending we experienced.

    I also noticed in last week’s Coastal Point that Mike’s Carpet Connection has a new name, Mike’s Flooring and Design. We wish Mike success with this endeavor and highly recommend him to anyone looking for a trustworthy business to support.

    Buying from local small businesses is smart in many ways!

    First, I want to thank you so much for helping our family in our time of need.  The donation will help to feed the children as they seem to always be hungry.

  • Hi Mike,
    I wanted to thank you for all of your help with the new flooring I purchased from you for my home office. The flooring looks great and gives the office a real professional look. Thanks again, and best of luck!

  • Mike,
    We wanted to let you know how pleased we were with your service! You were extremely patient and helpful when we chose our carpet and the installation was very professional! Your installers did the complete tear out and reinstall with perfection! I come from a ‘carpet family’ as my brother was an installer and carpet store owner for 30 years so I’ve been around carpet for a long time. We were so VERY pleased when the entire process was handled in our absence and when we returned to our condo this weekend we were very pleased that everything was complete with all the furniture back in its place and everything very clean. This was a big job and we couldn’t be happier! Thanks again Mike for a ‘job well done and we will be back!

    -Greg & Debi, Waynesboro, PA
  • Your service men did a great job in both bathrooms and cleaned up afterward. I was very happy with their work.

    -AFC, Ocean City
  • Mike: Thank you for your help with our new carpet — the fellows did a fine job (as they have done in the past!). Your post-installation letter was much appreciated and demonstrates a well- run business.

    -Tim & Carolyn, Fenwick Island
  • Dear Mike:

    Thank you for providing the carpet and installation at our Joint Business Expo. You helped make the place look more professional. Please let me know if there is anything the Berlin Chamber can do for you.

  • Dear Mike’s Carpets,

    Yesterday my new carpet was installed by Mike’s Carpet and I am very happy with the service and friendliness from beginning to end that I received from all the employees I came into contact with. I was especially impressed with the installation crew who arrived early and spent a long day working hard in our condo moving furniture and old carpet neatly and carefully and putting everything back exactly in the right place and vacuumed our new carpet. Benny and his brothers were polite and professional and considerate. I would highly recommend him and his staff as role models for others! They are terrific! and their work is impeccable. Thank you Mike’s Carpet. I could not be happier!

    -Susan, Ocean View
  • The carpet looks great! Your guys did a wonderful job. Please tell them I am sorry there was so much furniture to move. They moved the furniture downstairs, installed the carpet and put the furniture back — in just a couple of hours. Thank you, thank you.

    -Betty, Bethany Beach
  • Steve,

    Thanks for a great job. According to our resident manager…he has never seen a better job!! Kudos to Jeff and his crew.

    We will recommend Mike’s Carpet to everyone in Sails II. Can’t wait to get down and see it for myself.

    -Valerie, Selbyville
  • Dear Steve,

    Just a note to say thank you for the excellent installation that you provided.

    Your contractors…were professional, courteous, and quick to install a great floor without flaws, mix-ups, or messes. We would recommend your services to anyone considering new flooring.

    -John & Tish
