Home exchanging, and Homelink, have been wonderful parts of our life. Now, we watch lots of English TV programs...and get misty-eyed. So much good has come into our lives from you and Homelink.
With great appreciation,
We have been with you since 1991 and have enjoyed exchanging homes in [Canada and all over Europe]....Without you, we would not have been able to do this. You have kept us young!! ...We are eternally grateful to you and Karl for making our dreams come true. We have seen so much and been so many places and still have friends from these trips. God bless you both. I hope you are happy and healthy and stay that way for a long, long time.
Thank you for taking this seriously. I appreciate your working to keep HomeLink safe and such a high quality organization in which we can have trust. Best regards,
Good morning. We just wanted to take a moment to say thanks to you and Homelink and to wish you well. Judi and I have had 40+ exchanges over the past 10 years, most terrific, some a real trips all with great stories attached. We had three arranged for this year so we could attend our granddaughter's uni graduation in London and the Edinburgh Fringe. Oh well. So here's to a new normal with a healthy Homelink in it. Take care, kids
HI Karl and Katie, I hope you are both doing well! I received your email regarding membership and wanted to thank you for being so thoughtful. I appreciate it and will definitely be renewing my membership when it comes due. We had four exchanges lined up for this summer but, thankfully, we have all agreed to move them to next year....Thanks for your help with this. Take care, Kathy
Dear Karl and Katie: Thanks so much for your speedy and helpful reply....Let me add that...I expanded my home exchange resources to [another home swap company]. I have been really repelled by their shift to an emphasis on points, which we consider contrary to the whole home exchange relationship. I’m will be trying very hard to meet our [home swap] needs through HomeLink. Your personal availability makes a real difference too. Keep up the good work!
Thanks so much. You are extremely generous and helpful. I can't tell you how many people we recommend to Homelink...it's been such a wonderful part of our life. We know of two couples who are now regular "customers" and we love to exchange ideas.
Thank you so much! I will pursue this.
I always appreciate your wonderful home exchange organization, and your warmth in communication.
Best to you both!
Thanks for the quick reply....What a good program. We’ve availed ourselves to home exchanges over 65 times and have enjoyed EVERY ONE!!
Katie & Karl, I cannot thank you enough for your help. This was a cliffhanger :-). It's great to know there truly are caring human beings behind the face of HomeLink. I am so enjoying this portal to home exchange travel. Thank you,
Dear Karl and Katie, I guess it is just not your good looks that have you running the Homelink site. Your suggestion for the "command - “ simultaneous click of the keyboard did the job. I am back in business and looking for exchanges. Thank you so much. I especially appreciate how quickly you got back to me. Yo must have hundreds of inquiries. It is a pleasure working with you. Regards
My wife and I began house swapping in the pre-internet days and recently returned to it. We've tried several, but your site has been by far the most useful to us.
We hope you weather this terrible crisis we're all going through. We'll look forward to a future home swap with HomeLink.
Katie, Thanks so much for this information and for making the changes to our listings...We have had the most enjoyable summer and fall, with a home exchange in New Brunswick. It allowed us time to explore the Maritime provinces of Canada... This home exchange program is just the best!...Thank you for the time and effort that you and Karl put into this. You are helping connect people around the world!
Dear Karl and Katie, I want to thank you for going the extra mile or two to help us find an exchange after one we had arranged had to be cancelled. I did not expect your company to put forth this extra effort, and it was greatly appreciated. Thank you so much.
We have had ten exchanges through Homelink. Every exchange has gone smoothly and we've experienced no problems at all. You are providing a wonderful service for families all over the world. We can't thank you enough for all you do
Dear Katie, You are so quick to respond that you beat me to the computer this morning! …Thank you for your help and caring. HomeLink has been so much fun!!
Hi Karl & Katie. ...Because of you two, we have had experiences traveling that nobody we know ever dreamed of. Altogether we swapped over 50 times, each one a new experience. We still are friends with some of the folks we met exchanging 30-35 years ago. It [has been] a wonderful way to see the world and meet great folks. And, of course traveling as on board couriers just made it even more enjoyable (and less expensive)...
...We have done many hostings and youth exchanges, our kids have even used home link when they travel to get hostings from home link members. Homelink is a way of life for us. We have friends all over Europe, Australia, and Africa because of it. Thanks and happy trading
The best example of customer response I believe I have ever received, even going back to the 1960's, when people were more considerate and responsive. Thank you!
We may be among your oldest -- and longest term -- members, and we just want to take this opportunity to tell you how much we [love] being part of Homelink. We were introduced to it by the mother of a friend, probably twenty-five years ago. So thank you to both you and Karl for providing this wonderful service!!!!
Unlike other sites, listings are current with members who are active and interested in exchanges. Thank you for your good work and customer service
