Shannon is our go to guy! Before our trip to Highpoint, Shannon asked a lot of questions to determine what we were looking for. Answering those... questions really helped us make some decisions. He asked us to provide anything to demonstrate our inspiration; pictures of furniture we liked, the style and look we wanted to accomplish for our new home so that he could guide us to the stores that would have the type of furniture we were looking for.After a few conversations he sent us links to many of the vast number of manufacturers and stores that had the style and type of furniture we were looking for. Reviewing those helped us to further narrow down what we wanted all the while staying within our budget.Once we were in Highpoint we immediately knew we were in good hands with Shannon. He is a perfect example of that southern hospitality that has welcomed us as we are relocating from Seattle to Atlanta. It could have been a very stressful weekend trying to find all of the furniture we needed in 1 ½ days but not so with our guide. Based on all of the information we had shared back and forth beforehand, Shannon lined us up with a top-notch designer that walked us through manufactures that fit our style and our budget. It was a terrific “marriage” that helped guide us to what we wanted in a very, very, short period of time (not that it still took several hours to get there), but still in a LOT less time than would have taken us if we were on our own. During the entire time we spent with our designer, Shannon was always nearby, Johnny-on-the-spot to meet our every need and asking questions on our behalf about the furniture that we did not think of or even know to ask. He has a long background in the furniture industry and easily shared that experience and knowledge without influencing our decisions.During our time with Shannon he kept us focused on our goal but there were also lots of laughs and stories told throughout the weekend. He also made great recommendations for our evening meals, both nights were excellent!read more

My experience with High Point furniture tours was amazing. I am not much of a shopper. I was very daunted by the task of having to purchase a whole... home of furniture. Enter Shannon Neal… Problem solved. Before my trip to High Point Shannon collected pictures and floorplans from my home. He also requested photos of rooms that I liked, space is that reflected my style. He was accommodating in every way in advance of the trip. He insisted that we were his only priority. This assurance was more than words. He was timely and picking us up. He was very accurate in terms of his identification of the best place for us to shop. He introduced us to the right designer who Helped us make excellent choices. He even provided directions to her in terms of answering questions regarding the quality of products and things of that nature. He kept us on time. We had only two days in which to finish our shopping and he gently reminded us of the time in our goals. He was an intermediary with the sales person. He took it all on. He made sure that we had food, drink, and any thing else that we need it in terms of creature comforts. He was there with suggestions for restaurants and hotels. This tour was top notch all the way. We got everything that we needed and came in under budget. It was a great experience. I would definitely recommend Shannon Neal in High Point furniture towards. There are a lot of outlets in High Point. Without Shannon, I know that we would not have accomplished Our goals within the time frames available. I cannot say enough positive things about my experience.read more

You really do want this guy to get you started with High Point furniture shopping.First Shannon gives you a list of what you need to do so he can... help you.. That is; find or create your floorplan, identify what type of furniture you want to buy, etc. Then he can do his work - identify the places that sell the type of furniture you're interested in, create appointments for you with seasoned professional designers, etc.Once you are in High Point, he will pick you up at your hotel in a luxury car, take you to a great designer and get you catapulted in the right direction.By the time day 1 is over, you may be exhausted from all the running around, but you will have really gotten your moneys worth from Shannon.After that, you can continue using him or manage on your own.Again, he is very clear that you need to do your part so he can do his.Highly recommend getting Shannon to start you off on any High Point furniture shopping adventure. It made a huge difference for us.Thanks ShannonBen & Joieread more

Shannon is the person you want to help you make your furniture trip to High Point productive. He provided good advice before we left on our trip and... then he helped us find the right furniture store that would have the type of furniture we were looking for. He listens to your desires and then works to find the right location to meet your needs. We would not have found the furniture we wanted at a good price without his help. I would highly recommend his services and I plan on using him again in the future.read more

Our experience with Shannon was excellent. His professionalism and e-mail communication exceeded our expectations before we met in person. Upon... meeting at a mutually agreed spot in High Point, Shannon had a full itinerary of private showings for us to make selections from. We arrived home after a long day with many items needed to help make a new house a home. Thank you, Shannon, we would highly recommend your service to anyone.read more

High Point Furniture Shopping Tours did a great job of pre-planning to make my trip as efficient as it could be. They asked many questions and... looked at my house plans to create a shopping trip geared toward my specific needs. Pairing me with designers at each showroom who understood what I was looking for made it easy to quickly find many pieces that were perfect for my new home.read more

Our shopping experience was the perfect combination of efficient, successful and great fun, thanks to Mr. Shannon Neal. After an introductory... telephone call, he requested a listing of the furniture items of interest our living spaces. He provided gallery websites for us to review in advance of our arrival, then planned the day's itinerary. He greeted us and escorted us throughout the day through multiple galleries. We purchased every item on our list and one that was just a "perfect find" for which we will find a place for in our home. True Southern Hospitality, greatly appreciated!read more

We just completed a 3 day shopping tour with Shannon Neal at High Point, N.C. This was one of the most successful shopping tours we have ever had. ... Shannon was able to send us a plethora of information before our visit to help in our planning. High Point has so many different furniture options that without his help we would have been overwhelmed trying to accomplish our goals. With his guidance we hit the road running, and covered virtually every interest in a 3 day hunt. He took care of our needs so we could focus on decision making. We furnished an entire 4 bedroom home with design details to create our own style. The selection was amazing, with truly unique finds. We stayed within our budget, but were able to choose furnishings of much higher quality than we imagined. Most of all we feel we had fun during the entire process. He made it stress free and we saved a boat load of money on many quality items. We strongly recommend using Shannon for your trip to High Point. It is time well spent! Al and Tamiread more

I was unsure if we could navigate all the options in Highpoint until I found Shannon. Once we made contact I knew we would be in good hands! We... answered all his pre-arrival questions and brought all our building choices he recommended. We went to one showroom that had a few of our 'liked' companies and then to Club Cu since it was on our like list also. At both of these stops the designer he set us up with were very well versed and knew their stuff! They could answer all of our questions! Our third stop was at Furnitureland South were we actually ended up purchasing all of our furniture. Our designer had all of our plans, etc, She had printed out our lighting choices and such. Again - so much knowledge. Not one question went unanswered!OK - back to Shannon and his company. He picked us up from the airport and stayed with us as we went from floor to floor. At one point, he brought me an iced tea and some chips! He stayed in the background but was there to offer advice whenever we needed. He took us to our hotel when I called uncle for day one! Day 2 we in the very competent hands of Cindy. Again - great advice, very professional and always about us. She picked us up in the morning, drove us back to Furnitureland South for round 2 and took us to lunch.There are not enough words or time to express our complete satisfaction with Shannon, Cindy and this shopping tour!read more

Shannon proved to be a great host, helping to make the High Point Furniture Shopping experience a lot more productive and less overwhelming. It is... easy to get lost with all of the options although with some prep work leading up to the trip, Shannon was able to keep me focussed and in front of the furniture lines that met my taste. Shannon is the way to go within High Point, and his contacts and knowledge of the restaurants and hotels are unparalleled.read more

Our experience with Shannon was outstanding. He was able to pick the stores according to our style preference which saved us a lot of time (there are... 100s to choose from). There was no rush to get anywhere and no pressure to make decisions. He made all the appointments and kept people informed if we were going to be late. Shannon was attentive and engaged the whole time and made the shopping experience completely stress-free.read more

I highly recommend using High Pont Furniture Tours for any shopping trip to High Point.I had been to High Point before and became totally... overwhelmed with the number of stores and the volume of furniture to choose. Shannon provided a pre trip process that helped identify my tastes and then focus on the most appropriate stores. This cut down on time spent and frustration of looking at too many options. The time spent in High Point was focused and very productive. Shannon was prompt, listened to what I said as the shopping progressed and made additional plans to fit my needs as we went. He was easy to be with, provided excellent suggestions for dining and lodging and I enjoyed spending the day with him with our packed agenda.i experienced the least stressful big furniture shopping trip I have ever had. I will be a return customer if ever needed.read more

Without Shannon, my trip would not have been as successful. He truly took time to understand my needs and ensured everything was set up prior to my... arrival. He was flexible as style and asks changed and was able to coordinate other options/showrooms for us to view (last minute). Shannon is a true expert that is passionate about what he does. I cannot speak highly enough about my experience and how he was able to guide us appropriately. (Entire family went, you can imagine it's a hard task in itself to keep everyone on the same page) If you are looking for a stress free experience in a place full of wonderful furniture, I would highly suggest reaching out to Shannon. He will ensure you are successful in finding the right pieces for your desires.read more

High Point Furniture Shopping tours offered excellent service, but more importantly, prepared us to maximize the time shopping in High Point. ... Shannon knows the area and his furniture! He asks the right questions to narrow the focus of the trip so you don't run around looking here there and everywhere. He does everything he can to make sure his clients have a productive and enjoyable shopping experience. If we had gone on our own, we would have been overwhelmed and unprepared to find the pieces we needed. His service is simply exceptional!read more

High Point Furniture Shopping Tours is an absolute must for anyone serious about purchasing furniture in this premier furniture destination.There are... so many showrooms, all with different styles and price points; the concierge service provided by Shannon Neal provides an exceptional advantage! Shannon's knowledge and experience is incomparable; his warm and informative nature came through immediately in our initial correspondence (mine was via e-mail) and continued throughout our tour. The initial homework to be prepared for our actual visit was thorough but not overwhelming. Everything Shannon suggested that we consider and share with him ahead of our trip made for a very focused and attainable goal! We had 2 days to furnish a newly constructed home (2550 sf) that "needs everything". With his chauffeured service, all scheduled appointments and no pressure environment, we were able to streamline a lot of shopping.This resulted in our ultimate purchases in much less time than we ever would have managed without his guidance. We were even more successful than I had expected - and I always set my bar high!My husband & I feel Shannon's knowledge and services were invaluable in achieving all we accomplished in 2 days time. I've already mentioned High Point Furniture Shopping Tours to 2 new neighbors we met last night and will continue to do so with anyone interested in High Point shopping! The fee associated with Shannon's concierge service is truly nominal in comparison to the savings of both money and time - both coveted assets for us!read more

“The service you provided us was priceless. I admit I was a little skeptical at first, but we were both overwhelmed with your professionalism, courtesy, servant heart, knowledge, and expert guidance. You saved us a tremendous amount of time, helped us avoid frustration and confusion, and made our two-day experience one that we will never forget. To think that we found four rooms of excellent furniture at a great price in that short amount of time is absolutely remarkable. We could not have done it with your service. I am taking great delight in recommending you to everyone I know. Thank you!”
