I pride myself on a high level of service and in fulfilling the expressed wishes of each client. Getting to know my clients and building long term relationships with them as I do, enhances their own unique experience's. 

I believe it's the attention to detail that enriches the journey.

Led us to Paradise

By: R. Andy

Reviewed on: 20 Oct 2015

Jodi is a star. Totally engaged from beginning to end in organizing a 6 couple, 3 day weekend for our golfing group in Phoenix area. Led us to the fantastic Sanctuary in Paradise Valley arranging for an advanced booking to upgraded suites including spa credits and daily breakfasts. Identified great restaurants and made transportation arrangements for the group in advance to all of our planned destinations including limousine service to and from the airport. Our trip would not have been as enjoyable or relaxing without Jodi's involvement. I only wish she could have done something to help my golf game but such a miracle would have been too much to expect. Use Jodi for your next trip. You will have a better experience as a result...... R.Aandy

Jodi has planned many trips for us; she always follows up before, during and after to make sure we are happy. One time she had to help solve a billing issue and she took care of it. We plan to sue her again for sure and have referred many people to her as well.

Outstanding exceptional service

By: Rick 727

Reviewed on: 24 Jun 2016

Jodi provided outstanding exceptional service under difficult circumstances in that a previously planned trip involving six individuals needed to be cancelled and rearranged within a limited amount of time. She expeditiously coordinated all air travel, presenting alternative routings and costs for all six individuals, together with transfers and dining reservations, always with prompt feedback and unmatched responsiveness. Although Jodi had also planned the trip which needed to be cancelled she always maintained a positive and friendly attitude and never once complained regarding the need to cancel . I would highly recommend Jodi for any and all travel related planning.

Yes, Jodi was great! She gave us some options of places to stay with our criteria and guided us thru the options. Out location was easy, not far from the airport, and the hotel had a lot to offer.

As a former travel agent I tend to enjoy doing my own research in advance, but I do not have the time to organize, monitor, and tend to the details of a 4 week trip, so I relied heavily on Jodi to make the arrangements, tend to the details, and act as a valued sounding board regarding my preferences. She kept in contact, updated me on opportunities, and just made everything 100 times easier. In addition, in partnering with Southern World, we got great guidance and access to professional hosts that I could never receive on my own.

Always love working with Jodi. She knows our tastes and her recommendations are fantastic. Equally important, she takes the stress off of all the trip logistics from booking rooms to travel to transfers. And we always seem to get upgrade and extra surprises.

I introduced myself to Jodi via email as I needed a hotel for a last-minute trip. She responded to me within hours and we were booked the same day. Our trip went flawless and Jodi has continued to go above and beyond in ensuring that our needs our met for both personal and business travel. She proactively will look for options for upcoming trips and has indulged me in quoting other properties after she had booked a reservation.

Great Guidance for Santa Barbara

By: Anonymous

Reviewed on: 03 Jul 2017

When we were unable to get to Big Sur because of the road closures, we turned our sights to Santa Barbara and planned to stay at another resort. Based on Jodi's advice, we ended up at the Belmond El Encanto and can't say enough good thongs about the experience. Jodi arranged for adjoining rooms for my family and the accommodations were perfect- beautiful and quiet.

Amaxing Hong Kong

Fantastic. Really on top of details. Personally calls all hotels and speaks to Management. I have used her many times and she always does this extra touch. She may not always get it, but she always asks to get me upgraded to a suite. I had an amazing corner suite at the Ritz Carlton on my first leg of the trip, then a beautiful smaller suite on the second leg of my trip. It really made a difference...even on business.

Always great working with Jodi
