For those of you who have not heard of Shaky Knees, it has become one of Atlanta’s most famous events. Since its inception five years ago, Shaky Knees is a music lover’s dream featuring a diverse lineup of world-renowned acts to up-and-coming artists. For the second consecutive year, the music festival was held at Centennial Olympic Park May 12-14, drawing thousands of fans and offering everything from festival merchandise, cuisine, fun photo booths and band memorabilia.
This year, Brook Furniture Rental decided to get in on the “Shaky Knees” excitement and held a 2 ½ month referral contest giving away passes to the festival.
Carolyn Andra and her team from The Residence Buckhead won (5) three-day passes to the festival for sending Brook the most referrals from a community, while Carrissa McKnight from Alta Midtown won (2) Saturday passes for the most referrals from an individual leasing agent.
“Thank you so much, said Carolyn Andra, leasing consultant for The Residence Buckhead. I was so excited to win and to go to the festival, some of my favorite bands were performing, and I have always wanted to go. It was so much fun! The whole team is grateful!”
“I love referring Brook Furniture Rental to my customers because I know they will be taken care of so well! I can’t express enough how wonderful Brook has been in the last 2 and ½ years of working with them in leasing The Residence.”
The Shaky Knees referral contest ended up being a great success for Brook and a fun way to celebrate the Shaky Knees festival with the communities that we serve.

“Brook Furniture Rental exceeded our expectations and then some, as Realtors it is so essential that our listings are “showing ready” and with Brook’s furniture our listing SHINES and stands apart from the competition. The quality of the furniture was A+ and the process was seamless they are a first class service and we would use them again and again! Thanks Brook!!”
“We had a devastating house fire on Christmas day. We were fortunate to be well insured with a company who immediately referred us to the very best experts in every category to help us recover from our loss (This list includes cleanup crews, dry cleaners to remove smoke damage from our draperies, clothes, art restoration experts, furniture repair, etc.). Brook Furniture Rental was recommended to us as the best company in the business to furnish our temporary home. Once again, our insurance company provided us with a company that was tops in their field. As you might imagine, at the time we were devastated by our loss and preoccupied with the rebuilding process. Brook handled all the finer details and recommended packages that would provide everything we would need for this time, from sheets and towels, to couches, furniture, adequate lighting, and televisions and DVD players. Their expert installation crews installed the new quarters quickly and easily. When we decided we needed a few extras, or had over-ordered too much furniture in a room, they corrected our order swiftly and without explanation. Brook Furniture Rental made what would have been a painful process into one less thing we had to worry about. I would recommended them to anyone.”
“Brook Furniture did an amazing job with furnishing our new office space! I would like to personally recommend them to all of our prospects here at our new community! The staff is very courteous, and assisted us in choosing the perfect furniture for our space!” “Thank you Brook Furniture Rental!! You have been a dream to work with. I will pass your name on to others. ”
“As a home stager in the Metro DC area, I rent furniture from Brook Furniture 10-12 times a year. I have used other rental companies in the past and was not as impressed with their product, service or selections. The representative in the Fairfax showroom, is amazing to work with. She has caught errors and omissions on my part, quickly resolves any questions or issues that arise and is always friendly! The warehouse staff, delivery people and the supervisor Walter are all fantastic. My clients and I are always pleased with the process and the look of the rentals. Also love that they keep some basic pieces that work and change it up and add new pieces to keep it fresh!”
“Excellent service…great furniture. I called on a Wednesday and had all my furniture delivered that Friday! All the pieces were high quality in great condition and the people I talked to on the phone were really friendly and helpful! A great experience all around!”
“I happy to write this review for Brook Furniture Rental because they took an impossible situation and made it possible. We needed rental furniture and I only had two days to make it happen. Paula, my online concierge, was so helpful. I had very specific needs and sizes that would fit in the narrow doorway. Paula took the time to search the inventory, stay on the phone with me as I looked at the pictures online. She even searched for items that weren’t showing available on the website and emailed me pictures. She really went above and beyond my expectations. I began my search on Wednesday and we have the furniture delivered Friday! I had no idea renting QUALITY furniture and accessories could be so easy – but I was very lucky to find Brook Rental Furniture. The delivery team was professional, being so careful not to dirty the white carpet. They patiently moved the furniture around until it was just right. Pricing is very competitive and but the ease of the rental process was priceless. thank you very much Paula for making an impossible situation possible.”
“I am very happy with the furniture quality and customer service I received from Brook Furniture Rental. I was moving into a 2-bedroom apartment in Playa Vista, CA for 3 months and worked with Brenda to customize my furniture collection at an affordable price. Brenda was always responsive, accommodating and courteous in all our communications. I would highly recommend this rental company!”
“I love how easy this company is to work with. From the customer service rep to the delivery people, they are all extremely helpful and pleasant. The quality of furniture they deliver to clients is great, and they make my job so much easier. Brook Furniture Rental is the only furniture rental company I use, and the only one I recommend.”
“Brook has displayed some of the finest customer service I have ever dealt with. From assistance with selecting furniture to resolving any issues, the Brook team consistently went above and beyond in making sure our rental experience was to our utmost satisfaction. Pat, who was our rental agent, has essentially set a new benchmark for the type of customer service I would hope to expect from any company that appreciates its customers. I would highly recommend Brook to anyone looking to rent furniture who wants a very personal, catered experience when it comes to making your home or office come together how you envision it.
“Great experience renting from Brook Furniture Rental. Professional and helpful staff that knows their product and can offer good advice. Delivery people were careful, polite and courteous. Best experience that I could have had! Would highly recommend using them if you need to stage a home for sale.”
