Dear Toby,

I want to let you know how very pleased and grateful I am to have had your help and expertise these  past months in the surveying and planning for the future of the Sand/Locke Pond land.  I have learned a great deal from our association-and have enjoyed working with you! 

The land has been in our family since the early 1950’s, and its stewardship and development especially at present is very important to us. Working with you, I have received excellent advice and help in the planning of its future development.  Our communication  has been especially helpful, and all of your suggestions and drafts of the survey have allowed me to view the land in a new light, especially with regards to its potential.  Indeed, one of the lots you created has already been sold.

I have appreciated  all your knowledge and attention to details as well as your advice  regarding shared environmental concerns.  Your willingness to answer any questions, and clearly explain the issues made a big difference! You also helped me learn a lot more regarding codes and regulations for land owners. 

I look forward to my continued association with you and the team at  Kachnovich Land Surveying, and  highly recommend your company to any prospective client.

Dear Jim,

Following up on the voice mail message I left for you, I am enclosing a copy of the court's decision in the matter involving the Town of Buckfield. As you can see from the decision, the court adopted the survey as the definitive statement of the boundaries of the property. The court found your testimony to be the deciding factor in the case.

Thank you again for taking the time to testify in this case. I recognize that it was an inconvenience for you, but it was very important to the Town and we appreciate your help. You were an excellent witness.

If you have questions, please feel free to give me a call. I hope we run into each other again at some point in the future.

Dear Toby,

I just wanted to thank you and Kachnovich Land Surveying for all the work you did in surveying my wood lot in Oakland.

With a boundary dispute going back 30+ years, and spanning a few generations I knew it would not be and easy job. I appreciate your integrity, honesty and communication throughout the job. Even with weather that wasn't always helpful you completed the work in a timely manner with an impressive attention to detail.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend your services to a friend, or anyone who was in need of a surveyor.

Thank you for a job well done (and for putting to rest the long time boundary dispute!)

Thank you so much for the property survey. We appreciated it and were impressed with your work.

Dear Toby,

In the last two years we acquired two pieces of property that needed to be surveyed, one in central Maine and one in northwestern Maine. Not knowing where to turn last year, we selected your company, Kachnovich Land Surveying Inc. to survey 5.5 acres of land for us because you and Russ, your assistant, went to school here in Jay and we knew your families.

The survey was done in a thorough and professional manner. It was conducted when we could be present so that we had the opportunity to ask questions. Your pleasant and patient manner to make sure that our concerns were addressed and were appreciated.

We couldn't ask for better people to work with to survey that first property last year. This year when another piece needed to be surveyed there was no question as to who we would contract with to have it done. Again we were more than satisfied.

Your education, field experience, computer skills and knowledge of deeds and records at the local and county level make the end result of your work very satisfying for us, your customers.

We would turn to you again if the necessity arises to survey another piece of land. Please use our names any time if you need a reference.

Dear Toby,

I am writing to express my appreciation for the work that you have done. I recognize the fact that you were given very short notice and that the conditions, on site, were far from ideal. You have made a difficult situation much easier for us. Thank you for everything.

Very truly yours,

P.M. Isaacson

Dear Kachnovich Land Surveyors,

We wanted to take a moment to express our gratefulness and complete satisfaction with the recent survey you did of our property. We tried years back to get different surveyors to survey our property with the only responses being "It might take us a year or more to get to you we are busy." Not one of them ever showed up or returned our phone calls. Recently we came upon a property difference and needed a survey done right away. We took a deep breath and called our bank to see if they could recommend anyone. Your name was at the top of their list and after working with you it should be on the top of anyone's list who needs a survey. Not only were you friendly and easy to speak with you treated us with respect. The time frame in which you spoke with us, to the contract in the mail, to the stakes in the ground, to the finished survey was unbelievable. You helped us solve our issue in a timely, professional and affordable manner. Taking the time to answer our multiple questions, working to make our neighbors and us feel comfortable. This was exceptional for us to experience.

Some people have asked how did you get your survey done so quickly and still be affordable? We don't hesitate with the answer what so ever your name is given with the confidence that they will have the same exceptional timeliness, quality and reasonable pricing quote that we experienced. A lot more goes into a survey than most people would expect and it is way more than measuring and placing stakes. You put a lot of time and research in your work to make sure things are done right and it shows. As in our case we had a very small time frame to get answers and you (Kachnovich Surveying) meet the contract price, kept us updated on the process and helped us start to solve our case. For that, we can't thank you enough. We know whom to turn to for answers if we need the rest of our land surveyed.

We extend our gratefulness to you,
T. & S. Higley

Dear Toby,

I just wanted to thank you for doing an excellent job with our land survey. You and your partner were at all times professional, polite and helpful. You were thorough in your work and gave us all the time we needed to answer questions and explain the process and procedure and the results. I feel you were dedicated in doing the best job possible in a very timely fashion. Excellent customer service was evident from beginning to end - including little details like sending a self addressed stamped envelope to return the contract to you. I can't remember the last time a company provided that!

If ever you need a reference, feel free to contact me.

Thank you again,
S. Jamison
