The Customer Wall of Fame

Updated: Feb 13, 2022

"A life is not important except in the impact it has on other lives."

- Jackie Robinson

Jackie Robinson understood this better than most, as the primary catalyst to breaking baseball's color barrier during an historic Hall of Fame career in Major League Baseball.

His words ring true at Braun's Painting as well.

One of the aspects of our business that we love most, is the joy we bring to our customers after transforming their homes. It's no secret that residential painting doesn't rank very high on the "Essential Job" list, but yet, the impact we make on people can be substantial!

With all the many stressors at the forefront of today's life, we can provide that much needed jolt of excitement for our customers. If you're wondering, I did put in an application for one of those "A Hero Lives Here" signs for my front yard, but I was shot down pretty quick. What a shocker! I put in an appeal with the 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals on Hero Designation, so I'll let you know how that turns out. (I won't hold my breath , lol)

But enough of that...

I would like to recognize some heroes of my own, some Braun's Painting heroes. These are people that have had an impact on our lives at Braun's Painting as amazing customers. These are not your everyday, run-of-the-mill customers, wandering down the grocery aisle in ill-fitting Santa Claus pajamas.

These are customers who committed to hiring us for multiple projects over the course of years. They recommended us to their friends, family, neighbors, and maybe even random strangers. More than likely, their pajamas are appropriately sized and feature today's sleekest designs. For these reasons and more, they have become fixtures in the Braun's Painting Universe. And in this colorful "Brauniverse", we recognize people for that!

I am happy to announce the inaugural inductees onto the Braun's Painting Wall of Fame! Allow me to introduce these Wall of Famers and all of their impressive contributions.

Tracey Diamond- Baldwinsville, NY

Tracey owns the distinction as our first ever, officially signed contract. She initially hired us to do work on her parents' house, which she owned as a rental property. Since then, her legend has grown by hiring Braun's Painting for several phases of work in her Baldwinsville home. We've painted bedrooms, bathrooms, a utility room, her kitchen walls (twice), an accent on her family room ceiling, her entry foyer, and also her kitchen cabinets.

While these accomplishments alone are reason for the Wall of Fame, Tracey's biggest impact has come from her referrals to her friends and neighbors. Tracey has referred over $40,000 worth of business to us over the years! These projects include whole exteriors, multiple whole-house interiors, kitchen cabinets, and more. Honestly, these are only the referrals that are obvious and that I'm aware of. The full extent of the trickle-down effect from her referrals will likely carry on for years to come and will never be fully calculated or understood. We may have violated labor laws by not sending her commissions!

This hasn't been confirmed, but rumor has it, that whenever a potential client declines working with Braun's Painting, Tracey summons her ancient ancestors to haunt their walls in the form of sloppy cut lines and paint splatters.

Gavin & Jennie Lynch- Baldwinsville, NY

Gavin & Jennie's home in Baldwinsville was the first exterior project in our history! Since that fateful moment, they have brought us back on several occasions to paint their kitchen, entry foyer, and even to execute a decorative painting technique in their powder room.

What we appreciate most, is we were brought back on two occasions to help during major life moments. The first was when Jennie called us back to paint their entry door as an anniversary gift for Gavin. Most recently, they hired us to paint the nursery for the arrival of their new twins!

The only down side to the Lynch legacy, is that I now suffer from a mild sleep disorder, which features tossing and turning and indiscernible sleep-mumbling, brought on by the echoes of Great Dane paws barreling down toward my fully extended ladder. Who needs sleep, anyway?

What's more important, is that the Lynch family patronage doesn't end there. Gavin also hired us to paint his entire dental office in Camillus, and then brought us back a year later to paint cabinetry at the office as well.

Interestingly enough, Braun's Painting has since moved into the office space below Gavin's dentist office, and now I can live out my dream of having the easiest commute to the dentist in all of history. (Improving my life goals is on the 2021 radar)

In another unsubstantiated rumor, there are whispers that Gavin plans to arrive to work early so he can sneak into the Braun's Painting office and admire his photo on the Wall of Fame. He plans to drink coffee slowly while nodding his head in unrivaled satisfaction.

Wall of Fame Induction

Without further ado, Braun's Painting presents to you the induction of Tracey Diamond, and Gavin & Jennie Lynch to the Braun's Painting Wall of Fame.

In addition to the presentation of gift cards, a company shirt, and the golden brush, a tribute to these inductees will be hung on the Wall of Fame until the new class is inducted. For the years to come, their tribute will remain on the Customer Wall of Fame page on our website.

Thank you and congratulations to the inductees!
