Marble Elegance has served the Rogers County area for 23 years, proudly offering exemplary customer service and high-quality products including cultured marble, PolyStone Granite, TruStone, and onyx. The talented Marble Elegance crew customizes each piece on site in their shop and showroom, located at 15212 E. 440 Rd. in Claremore. As a “Thank You” to the community of customers and builders they’ve established relationships with over the years, Marble Elegance is hosting a Customer Appreciation Day on Friday, October 26 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., and everyone is invited.
Owner Mike Self explains, “This is a way for us to give back to our customers and builder friends, and be together for some fun and fellowship.” A tent will be set up for attendees to mingle and visit with Mike and his staff, as well as enjoy burgers grilled up by Cary Froman of Froman Oil & Propane Company. Dallas Jones, a good friend of Mike’s and the owner of CherryBerry Corporate, will be the guest speaker at the event. Marble Elegance is blessed to be a part of the CherryBerry family. They provide bar tops and solid surface inserts for the yogurt machines for CherryBerry stores all over the United States.
Marble Elegance has solid relationships with many quality builders in the Claremore area, including Ron Griggs, Oklahoma Royal Homes, Redwood Construction, Quality Homes, C E Moody, Money Homes, Strategic Homes, Russell Judd, Denham Homes, Anglen Custom Homes, Epic Homes, Butler Homes, Green River Homes, Rod Henry, Ford Homes, Roland Homes, Scott Nymen, Brett Fleak, Tony Long, Leon Callison, and Ryan Kelly. In addition, Mike is on the board of directors for the Rogers County Home Builders Association.
Marble Elegance specializes not only in cultured marble creations, but offers products from Burlstone (trophies), Arizona Stone, and TruStone. Team member Nickie Roberts reports that TruStone is especially popular right now; it is an engineered stone with a granite image photo-fused into the stone. “Granite is all the rage right now, but it is costly and often requires a lot of upkeep,” says Nickie. “TruStone is non-porous, so it offers the granite look without the granite cost and maintenance.”
Many customers are surprised to learn that Marble Elegance does not use machinery to create its masterpieces. “Every piece is hand grounded. We take pride in offering hands-on customer service, and we are blessed to have built wonderful relationships in the community,” says Mike. “Our Customer Appreciation Day is a small way to show how grateful we are.”
Mike adds that he gives credit to the Lord for providing him with an amazing staff and continued success. “It is our faith that has sustained us through the bad and good economic times.” Add Marble Elegance as a friend on Facebook to see lots of photos of their work, or stop by the showroom.
