Business Services Testimonial

My position within our organization (a Texas based corporation registered in Montana) requires that I work with all 50 states in regards to registrations, licenses, etc. I wanted to take a moment to let this office know how friendly the staff is, how easy it is to complete various filings online, how welcoming Montana is to foreign entities, and how up to date everything is in general. Whether by design or not, I can say that when it comes to all things related to the Secretary of State from a corporation standpoint, you all have it down to a T. I wish every public office was as friendly and efficient as yours. I just wanted to express these thoughts and say thank you.

Colleen was helping a gentleman at the front desk.  He was so thrilled with how much she helped him, he literally jumped up out of his chair to leave and yelled, “YOU’RE JUST A GEM!

Wow Gabi! I just received a call from a customer named Melvin Schuldt, who wanted to pass along some kudos to you on his situation that you dealt with a while back. He stated: “Gabi helped me out so much….we lost our documents, and could not find them. Gabi was able to find the documents, which saved me and the company a huge headache. She did it all with a smile and was so helpful”

Way to go Roberta! I want to complement you on Roberta. I am disabled & she did an awesome job helping me through the process. I give her a 6 on a scale of 1-5. She did superlatively. She has a wonderful laugh. I was on the verge of tears when she picked up the phone. She helped me immensely.

Business Services Testimonial

Needless to say without computer skills I was sweating getting this handled by the 15th. I want you to know just how courteous and professional Mark was, and considering my age, he had his hands full. It is great to know we have public servants who are looking after our backs. Again, Mark Carpenter is to be commended, and a real plus for your office! C. Rose
