Our team within Home Depot works with Classic City Consulting and Chris LaFay, in particular. Chris developed one of our content platforms and to this day (many years later) helps us manage and troubleshoot any issues. To say Chris is an expert just doesn't cut it. He's definitely THE expert with a capital THE. Chris doesn't just troubleshoot any and all problems we encounter, he solves them quickly and accurately. Chris is detail-oriented, thorough and accurate with everything he does. I highly recommend Classic City Consulting and Chris LaFay.
