|On behalf of our Board of Directors, staff, volunteers and most of all those we are privileged to serve, we want to take this opportunity to thank you and the members of the College Pro Painting team for your dedication and hard work in preparing and painting the exterior of our office building and detached garage this past March.
When we originally received the email inquiry from Katie at your Lombard, Illinois office, we were quite surprised both as to the nature of the email and the timing of the communication. It is not often that an organization calls you unsolicited to help you in such a meaningful way. We had also been discussing as an organization our need to paint our Clay Pigeon property in Bend, Oregon but could not afford to do so at this time.
Your supply of the labor, services, all of the paint and supplies, and oversight of this project we know amounted to well over $4,000 to $5,000 in materials and labor, perhaps more. The young gentlemen that you selected for your team were outstanding in every way, from their work ethic to being completely professional. Scott, we also appreciated and highly valued your personal onsite supervision and care and attention to every detail of the project. We can’t thank you enough.Sincerely,
Executive Director, Abilitree

| To Whom It May Concern, College Pro painters transformed the appearance of our aged facility, in a matter of hours, through a complete painting of the exterior of our multi-surfaced structure. Our building iscomprised of diverse materials including wood, brick and stucco, not to mention a variety of trims, doors, and other accents. All were finished with uniform consistency and in a safe and expedient manner. Great care was also taken in keeping spills or unintentional paint from marring adjacent surfaces that were not to be painted. Simply put, their professionalism and attention to detail made for a great experience from beginning to end.
On behalf of Cottage Cove Urban Ministries, I would like to wholeheartedly recommend College Pro for all your exterior painting needs. It’s amazing what a superior painting jobwill do for the look of your building or house! Feel free to stop by and see what they did here.

| I live in a large historic house, which due to its age had a fair amount of yearly upkeep and maintenance. Within the past five years, I have had three painting contractors work on my house. The first and third time I had my house painted College Pro did it. After firing the second contractor from the job, I told myself I would never use anyone but College Pro again.
My dealings with College Pro have always been professional and ordered. College Pro makes it very clear and detailed what they are doing, leaving nothing to question. The managers and painters are simply nice people, people who I feel comfortable with working around my house. It can be expected that problems will sometimes arise with work that is being done on your house, especially with a house such as mine that has antiquated building methods. How these problems are dealt with, however, is what is important to me. With College Pro any problems have been quickly addressed and the manager informs me of what they are doing to solve the problem in an educated manner. My luck with other contractors is somewhat less impressive, often times putting me off and trying to ignore the problem altogether.
For these reasons, I would recommend College Pro Painters to any homeowner who wants their house treated with respect.
|I am most happy to enthusiastically recommend College Pro Painting… under the direction of franchisee Nathan Harte. The work was reliably performed, and I was impressed with the high degree of responsibility and strong work ethic shown by Mr. Harte and the young men and women who worked with him in completion of this job.
The job was done in a highly satisfactory manner and all of our concerns were quickly and fully addressed. They started promptly on time and was completed on time, even though it was a tight time frame. In addition to the high quality of painting, they were meticulous in their cleanup and were unobtrusive in their presence around the house.
In this day where quality workmanship can be difficult to find, the College Pro team, under the direction of Mr. Harte, is a reminder of the good old days. I’m most happy to give them my unqualified recommendation.

To whom it may concern,
It is with great pleasure that I submit a letter of recommendation for College Pro.
Student entrepreneurs with College Pro volunteered time and skills with Rebuilding Together Philadelphia in March of 2013 as part of an alternative spring break with College Pro Painters.
Rebuilding Together Philadelphia (RTP) is a local, independent affiliate of a national network focused on preserving affordable homeownership using volunteer resources. Through its critical home repair projects, including energy efficiency upgrades, as well as its safe and healthy home projects, RTP has helped nearly 1,200 low-income homeowners and 52 community agencies since its founding in 1988. The hard work, dedication, skill and sweat equity of hundreds of volunteers in the Mantua community this spring allowed us to help 20 homeowners and their families with repairs that will be worth over $430,000 in market value for this community.
College Pro brought a team that painted twelve front facades in this community. College Pro arrived on site with all the necessary equipment and supplies and was ready to paint these facades free of charge to us and the low-income homeowners we serve. They utilized the Environmental Protection Agency’s RRP guidelines and skillfully got the job done. Painting these facades was not originally in our scope of work due to budget limitations. This work provided a finishing touch on the critical repairs and neighborhood stabilization projects we’ve undertaken.
I am certain that you will find working with College Pro Painters to be a positive and productive experience.

|Dear College Pro Team:
Thank you so much for the amazing work you performed at our facility this spring. Because of your help and transforming paint job we are able to serve poor and homeless families in our community with even more dignity than ever. No more are the drab walls of concrete block. Instead, we have a beautiful building that speaks of hope to our clients.
Most important, I appreciate the kindness that everyone exhibited while at our facility. All of your volunteers showed an amazing compassion for the families they met while on site. That shows the quality of the folk that are engaged at College Pro.
I look forward to hearing about the great work your team does in the future!
|The positive experience with College Pro Painters when they recently painted my home was one I would gladly repeat.
Scott was persistent, despite my difficult work schedule which didn’t allow for lengthy meetings
The crew manager was pleasant, responsive and always kept the outcome of the job in mind. He was resourceful and mindful of the needs of his crew as well as paid attention to the detail that there was no shortage of. Each time a request was made or decision had to be made, he was helpful and thoughtful.
The crew was also very pleasant and great to share moments with through the project. There were no times of tension or frustration that often accompany such a project. I review these college students as great talents for their own futures.
I will again turn to College Pro when I need my home painted or when asked by a friend who I would recommend for a job in the future. My thanks to a team well run and of good character.

|We would like to take this opportunity to thank College Pro Painters for a job well done. Under the direction of Aisling Lanigan, her team was all very professional in their work and responsibility of the job ahead of them. They have been highly recommended to our family and friends for future projects. Regarding future projects in our home, College Pro would be the only company we would hire. To all the students we wish you the best of luck in your future endeavours.
|Thank you to your staff for the excellent work done on my home this past spring. Rod, Jamie and Stephen were outstanding in the quality of work, how they trained the team, and their respect for me and my property. Since I knew I was to be a training house and college students were involved, my expectations were not set very high and I was overwhelmed with gratitude that I was given such a generous gift as their time, labor and the paint as well.
The delight in watching how each evening the team worked to clean up the yard and used a shop vacuum in my yard for any paint chips that did not land on the tarp was extraordinary and I commend them. The quality of painting was excellent. I am a rather fastidious person, and was all ready to clean up any drips or spills - to my delight you left me actually nothing to do! Everything was spotless.
My house looks beautiful. I delight in taking care of it, thank you for helping so generously and kindly. May you and yours have this kindness returned to you a thousand-fold.
To Whom It May Concern,
| Last week we had our house painted by College Pro Painters and we had to contact you to say how pleased we are.
We contracted through Jason Daniels. He and his guys came out when they said they would, they did an outstanding job with everything, they were professional and courteous. We have a decent sized home with a walk-out basement making the back of the house an awkward three stories to paint. Not only did they finish the job in a tmely manner, they did an outstanding job.
We were so pleased that we recommended their services to two of our neighbors. I wanted to let you know how pleased we are with the job they did and the professionalism they brought to our house every day they were here.
