We were introduced to Sherry through a family member in 2013.  She was attending college for Digital Media and Design and emailed us with a few questions about a big project she was working on for school.  We were impressed with her ability to take the information we gave her and run with it as well as her attention to detail and design expertise, so we decided to hire her before she even graduated.

Thank you so much for your great work on our project. I was in a real bind when our site went down and you were very accommodating in getting a temporary site and then creating our final e-commerce site. It looks great and you were easy to work with. It came on budget and quicker than I expected – as a bonus, the site looks great.

Thank you!

Phillip Rosebrook JR

Thank you for all this info and for continually responding to our needs. I’m always grateful for the way you handle yourself and have expressed this again to John. You have integrity, work hard, make no pretenses. I just want you know how much I appreciate that.

Marketing/Web Producer, Iron Man Magazine

After spending 10’s of thousands of dollars with unprofessional and overpriced programmers, I was thrilled to discover Nine Planets. Not only are they reasonably priced, they also manage every detail and get the job done quickly. Nine Planets has developed a number of very sophisticated databases for my online businesses. In every case they have responded quickly and exceeded my very specific requirements. There is nobody better and they won’t let you down.
