What do our Californian clients have to say?

Read some of our reviews and testimonials from clients in California who have used our call answering service below. You can find more Conversational reviews on Consumer Affairs and Trust Pilot.

“The main benefit that our business got from partnering with Conversational is that their service has allowed flexibility. They’re able to answer the phone, so we don’t have to have someone dedicated to the telephone. They’re also able to screen calls, so we get the important ones and people that pretend to be doing surveys don’t get through.

All the operators have been pleasant and my clients are satisfied with their interactions with them. They call, schedule, and update the calendar, and they’re professional and do a good job. I’m satisfied with the service and I’d recommend it to others who need it.” Roy of Pleasant Hill, CA

“Conversational is on the same service level as Ruby Receptionist that I used (Ruby is good but expensive). Then I got Conversational and it’s exceptional. I even call in every now and then just to test it and they do a good job. They’re professional in how they answer the phone and they make the business look larger than what it is. And although my call volume is low, it’s good to hear that. It’s definitely positive and I’m very pleased. They’re professional and definitely worth the money.” William of San Diego, CA

“Everything was great with Conversational Receptionists. They worked on our pricing and did everything. We used them when I was on vacation so that someone would answer the phone. They also sent me emails with the messages, which is exactly what I wanted.” Barbara of Glendale, CA

“They have allowed me to focus on other business priorities instead of answering the phone on a day-to-day basis.” Pehr of Menlo Park, CA

“Conversational is a good company. The receptionists are very well-trained, professional and have always done whatever was required. The ladies do a very good job of communicating, answering and asking questions so I have no complaint to make. The virtual assistance helps because I’m busy throughout the day. It had a positive impact as far as on the legal side because most of the attorneys didn’t like to engage with the client. We have a good business relationship.” Emme of Sacramento, CA

“I looked Conversational Receptionists up on Google. They’re my first virtual receptionist. They do all my calls for me and it’s always been very good. They’ve helped my business a lot.”¬†Bethany of Yucaipa, CA

“We’re a small business with offices in New York and San Francisco. We’re a production company so we’re in the field all the time filming and doing things. It’s nice to have people to call us with one number and then the receptionist can try to track us down and leave us both an email and a message.

I used to be with Ruby Reception and their prices kept going up. Conversational saved us money by being the less expensive option and then it’s been a solid resource. We use their answering and messaging service. The team has been great as well. All of the receptionists are friendly and courteous. Overall, it’s great.” Tommy of San Francisco, CA
