Our entire experience--from selecting furniture with the help of Sales Representative Andy Dunn to the delivery and set up by Cris and Erick--was nothing short of outstanding. Working with Belfort was a distinct pleasure. So many times it seems as if nothing can get done without some sort of problem or glitch on the part of a vendor. This was certainly not the case with Belfort. The combination of fine furniture at reasonable prices and competent and friendly professionals who get it right the first time guarantee we will both return to Belfort and recommend this company to friends.
