I have to say, if you're shopping for a new car, you'll pause and say "wow" by their dealership. It's just COOL. They have interney kiosks there so you can do your own research, free coffee (the good kind: cappucino, etc), and comfy seating. They do a good job of making it seem low pressure.
Of course, the whole idea of the internet kiosks is so that you'll feel like you've done your research, and will make an impulse decision that day.
So just as long as you keep that in mind, add Nelson Mazda to your list when you're shopping around.
Side Door antiques has a truely exquisite selection of stuff. They display it in such a way that browsing thru it is delightful.
Most of their antiques are wood furniture, but occasionally you'll find an upholstry chair or sofa.
If you're looking for a bargain, you probably won't find it here. But you WILL find a great selection.
If bargains are more important than selection, check out Buffalo Stew just down the street.
If you're looking for a no-hassle loan, Monica is your woman. We have several rental properties, and she's helped us with most of them.
She can shop your loan around to different lenders to get you the best rate, and the best thing is that she CALLS YOU and gives you periodic updates on how your loan is going.
Prata itself is just like any other mortgage group... but going with Monica makes things that much easier.
Fred is just an all around great guy - he works hard for you, and keeps you updated. He'll let you know every step of the way how the sale is progressing... and give you pointers on how to structure the contract language.
Fred is best for people looking for their own personal homes, not investments. He's very patient, but doesn't call immediately when something new hits the MLS.
Keep Fred in mind if you're looking in teh Bixby area. He sold a house to us a while back, and we enjoyed working with him immensely.
Tulsa Treasures specializes in gifts & clothing that are distinctively Tulsan. I've found that they're a great place to buy "thank you" gifts for speakers who come in from out of town, or to have a going-away present for someone who's leaving us.
Parking is limited, so I recomend that you go during the day, or else bring some change for a parking meter on the street.
Reliant isn't a BAD escrow company, they're just not anything to write home about.
They sucessfully closed our loan, but it wasn't headache free. I know that some problems came from the lender, but others came from Reliant not getting the title work done in the timeframe they were supposed to.
Closings of Tulsa does a good job, nothing remarkable, which is probably a good compliment.
I've closed at least one loan there with no more than the usual last minute hiccups... didn't have to postpone closing or anything.
Central is the largest library in the TPL district... therefore, it has the best selection.
It IS a little run down, and attracts a lot of unsavory charactors due to it's location... but there are security guards there, so I never feel unsafe.
Collin's is an older liquor store... they JUST removed a crumbling sign, so it looks better than it used to.
It's super convenient, since Reasors is right there. Price wise, I'd say it's average... not the cheapest, but not too bad.
This store isn't as busy as some other Hallmark stores... so she has the time to sit down with you if you're looking at wedding invitations. She has a great selection to choose from, and can get them ordered for you very quickly.
