Piano Testimonials

Baldwin Upright Piano Owner – fawaz hashmi

Great experience purchasing our Baldwin upright from Maggie. Had a couple of trips. Their inventory does turnover which is good sign so if you see something make a down payment while you decide.
Maggie was great with my 15 year pianist who is picky and helped us navigate the field of pre-owned pianos.
Highly recommend here.

Brodmann Grand Piano Owner – Marlon Soza

I had a great experience with Maggie at Houston Piano Company. I visited her twice over the course of a year... Both times she was very courteous, very knowledgeable, and most importantly was very patient with me. Deciding on a piano is not easy, but she certainly made me feel at ease. The second time, I spent a couple of hours playing different pianos until I finally decided on a Brodmann PE187... wow, no regrets! It's been a dream of mine to own a grand piano and Maggie made it happen. Thanks again Maggie!

Feurich Concert Grand Piano Owner – Menin Gitus

I agree with the other reviews of Maggie. Firstly, the size and amount of inventory was great. There were several different models and makes, which for me was an 'ear' opening experience to hear the sound that can come out of another brand of piano (outside the Big 3-4). The show room was clean and well cared for, indicating the pianos are cared for a great deal, so you know you are getting a quality product.

Maggie talked to me about what i was looking for, showed me around the entire store and had me try pianos i wasn't sure about. She took her time with me and left me to play a while to see if the instrument was a fit. She came back to check on me, gathered more info and introduced me to other options. It was great! She knew the pianos and brands well and could direct me to an instrument that fit my style of music. She explained to me the difference in sound and quality and broke me of my preconceived notions of what the 'best piano' is.

The sales process was easy and all details were outlined. Service is also great, I've started to use Maggie's preferred tuner (by ear). Finally, we made a match - went with a 7'3" Feurich, it is glorious! Thanks Maggie!

Ritmuller Upright Piano Owner – Txi PS

After several visits to piano dealers looking for a good quality upright piano for my son . I made an appointment with Maggie Pollio, Chinese Piano Lady, at the Houston Piano Company. Maggie took the time to understand my concerns, needs and budget. She has so much knowledge about the piano industry and the instrument. Maggie told me she actually visited the piano factories in China and also attends the music trade shows. I felt very comfortable with Maggie's guidance and her suggestions about what piano would provide our family the best value. We purchased a beautiful Ritmuller upright and are very happy with our new piano and the expert knowledge we received from Maggie!

Perzina Piano Owner – SUSANNA CHAN

Maggie was way beyond selling a piano. She tries to understand the musical journey and inspiration of each customer. She tends to realistically meet your budget with your lifestyle and inspirations. She was very patient and would not like to see me settle for less. She finally helped me materialize my goal of owning a Perzina baby grand 5"3" at the right time and the right budget. It helped to unstuck my music journey and whole lifestyle! Unlike most piano sales, whose sole purpose is to sell you their names brand(s), twisting you around to fit the piano. Instead, Maggie choose a piano that fits the expression of who you are!

A. Geyer Piano Owner – 林更剛

Maggie 小姐之服務品質很棒的,她不會讓客人感到壓力,兩年前我向她購買了初體驗的Kimball直立式鋼琴,今天她推薦我買演奏琴不厭其煩的介紹了各種琴的特色,如尖的,方的,圓的音質,這是我的解讀,之後,我挑一部A.Geyer 鋼琴,並且退還兩年前買的Kimball,並扣除當初購買之價格,否則家裏要放置兩台琴。
她真的非常貼心,非常讚。

(Translated by Google) Great quality of service for Miss Maggie, she will not make the guests feel the pressure, two years ago I purchased her first experience Kimball upright piano, and she recommended I buy today, playing piano patiently describes the characteristics of a variety of piano, such as sharp, square, round sound, this is my interpretation, then, I picked a A.Geyer piano, and refunded bought two years ago Kimball, and deduct the purchase price of the original, or home to place the two piano.
She really is very intimate, very commendable.

Pearl River Piano Owner – Donna C.

I rarely write reviews but I think Maggie has actually EARNED it. On a scale of 1 to 5, She gets a 10. She came through without any hitches. Initially, I was quite apprehensive about buying a piano thinking I might have to do a lot of window shopping and tests to get a piano that was specifically tailored to my son’s needs. When a piano technician who is very knowledgeable referred us to Maggie Pollio, I didn't hesitate to call right away.
She was super customer-oriented, never pushy and patient. She went above and beyond to make sure my son and I were SATISFIED. Maggie was very resourceful as she recommended and promptly called all the resources she had and got us a brand new white grand piano, which also came at a great price. It is without pause that I recommend her to anyone looking to get that “perfect” piano!

Used Steinway & Sons Piano Owner – Jessica Olsen

I did my research online prior to visiting the Houston Piano Company, actually, while I was doing my research, "Houston Piano Consultant” kept surfacing. I followed the link to Maggie’s website and was impressed with her five-star customer satisfaction ratings and the straight-forward information on purchasing a piano. Maggie was able to help me understand what I learned online about the piano industry, how and where pianos are built and why and then really customize my search to my specific requirements. Thank you, Maggie, you’re a gift to the piano business!

Brodmann Piano Owner – Liam Smith

We loved our experience purchasing a piano here. There is an extensive selection of pianos to choose from in multiple buildings. The best part was our salesperson, Maggie, who was incredibly helpful and devoted a lot of time to educate us (first-time piano buyers) on all the factors to take into account when purchasing a piano, like the sound/voice and feel. If you have a little extra time to spend and are inexperienced or first-time piano buyers, the background and education Maggie provided was incredibly helpful, and made us feel confident we were choosing the best piano for our budget and preference in sound. Additionally, we felt the prices were excellent and the full future trade-in value is an amazing feature, giving us an added sense of security in our purchase.

Maggie was such a pleasure to work with. I travelled an hour and a half to meet with her and have her guide me through the show rooms. It was well worth the extra drive. She was patient, informative, and kind. I ended up with a piano that exactly fit the sound I was looking for.

I would recommend anyone looking for a great piano (console to concert) to reach out to her!

We bought a high end player piano just in time for the holidays. They delivered on time and although we had to scratch our heads some to get all the IPAD blue tooth connections organized and functional, it played all sorts of great songs Houston Piano Company pulled together for us in advance of delivery. Maggie was great. Good job guys!

We went to visit HPC last year, Meggie was really nice to introduce and show us the different pianos in the store, and she let me playing as much as pianos possible. We found the perfect piano for our budget with Meggie's help. I am surprised that the store has a lot of pianos from different brands to try. I would love to visit the store again just to see the other beautiful pianos.

Brodmann Piano Owner – Darryl Legaspi

I was referred to Maggie by a friend of mine and was amazed by her professionalism and knowledge regarding pianos. Upon meeting her for the first time my wife and I felt like she was a close friend. She was very personable and made us feel comfortable when seeking the piano that best suited our needs. Half the time I didn't realize I was searching for a piano, and felt like we were talking to a longtime friend. She was not pushy at all and she made sure we took the time to fall in love with the piano that we would be investing in. Each piano we tried she provided the history of the maker, and the quality of the build of the piano that sets each piano apart from the rest. We finally settled on a Brodman PE121. I highly recommend Maggie, for her friendly personality, extensive knowledge of pianos, and superior professionalism.

Piano Customer – Bobby Keyes

I moved to Houston a week ago, and I made Houston Piano Co. one of my first stops. I rang the door bell, and Maggie greeted me with warmth and respect. She listened to my musical needs and was generous with her time to show me several pianos. They have an extensive display of pianos across a wide spectrum or quality and price. I was introduced to a few brands that I had never seen before! I look forward to visiting Maggie at HPC again to eventually buy my next piano.

Piano Rental Customer – Amanda Pfefferkorn

I stopped by and spoke with Maggie Pollio. She was so informative and helpful with making a decision. She showed me many different pianos and explained how and why they sound different and to identify the sound I am looking for in my own piano. I am renting one for now and with time hope to purchase. I would highly recommend this place to anyone with an interest in playing, renting or purchasing. All the people were kind and helpful, no one was snobby or rude, which is something I was afraid of since pianos seem to be a high end sort of thing. Looking forward to taking lessons in the near future.

Perzina Grand Piano Owner – Rose Carmouche

My buying experience at Houston Piano Company was wonderful! They have such an extensive inventory of every brand, type and style of piano you can imagine. Maggie Pollio gave me a most informative and comprehensive tour, answering all my questions and providing information on each specific brand and piano that I was interested in seeing. I must have missed the sales pitch as Maggie let the pianos speak for themselves exemplifying all the things she had informed me of. I felt very comfortable and pleased with my selection which was beautiful in both appearance and timbre. From the selection process to signing the purchase agreement all went very smoothly and favorably impressive to me.
Thanks Houston Piano Company and Maggie for a great experience.

We had the pleasure of working with Maggie to purchase an upright piano for our family. Since I do not play I was very apprehensive about ending up with a piano that was more than we needed or could afford. Maggie put me right at ease and helped me to feel comfortable throughout the whole process. She made sure we purchased one we were knowledgeable about and comfortable with the payments, all while making sure it was the best piano we could afford! We will absolutely be back to see her when it is time to upgrade and will refer her to all of our friends! Thanks Maggie!

I highly recommend buying your piano from Maggie Pollio, she was wonderful! She knows her stuff, is eager to help and is very fun and friendly. I went into buy a piano and was impressed with her knowledge of pianos and the music industry in general. She factored in the size, brand, and most importantly my budget, when helping me to choose my piano. I so appreciated how she didn’t waste her time (or mine!) trying to up-sell me on something I couldn’t afford. My piano sounds and looks beautiful and I’m very happy with the warranty that they offer.

My experience with Maggie Pollio at Houston Piano Company was a gratifying and memorable one. It took me multiple visits to the store to finally choose my new beautiful baby grand piano to own.

We shopped a EU122 piano from Maggie last April and we are very happy with our purchase.

Pearl River Piano Owner and Piano Instructor – Darrell J.

I have played the piano for over 25 years and have used many, many different pianos. After owning a Pearl River for over a decade, I can earnestly say that Pearl River gives an astounding value for the amount of money you will spend. Pearl River pianos are not only very aesthetically pleasing, but also sound very beautiful. The tones are rich and colorful, causing the ear to be taken wherever the music was intended to transport the listener. If you have not yet seen one, I suggest that you try one out soon. You will not be disappointed!

Maggie, thank you so much for sharing the love of music and family. We have been so blessed to have the piano back in our home. When the girls surprised me with the delivery, I just started to cry. I never wanted to sell my piano so this really brought an emotional gift back into my life. Your skills of just gently sharing the beauty that surrounds you amongst the pianos sold the girls on the return of their love…music. Thank you so much.

We would like to highly recommend the Houston Piano Company. Since beginning our quest to purchase our new grand piano (a lifetime dream come true for this music educator) Maggie Ying, “the piano lady”, treated us with such professionalism and personal kindness. Our choice was not difficult to make. Maggie’s knowledge and expertise were honest, candid and helpful. Not only did Maggie help in our search but after our purchase she stored our piano until we were ready to have it delivered, then took our studio Baldwin, found it a loving home and sent us a check.

I cannot thank you enough for all you’ve done to help Nikki and I during this whole process. We will always remember buying our piano from the nicest Chinese Piano Lady in all of Houston!

Kawai Upright Piano Owner – Paul & Linda

When I first started researching Pianos for my home I naturally was drawn to both the Yamaha and Kawai brands. Mostly because they are well know brands. As I learned more about what makes a piano different and where they are built I decided to purchase an upright 48″ Kawai in late 1990 over the Yahama. I felt the Kawai was a better built piano and I liked the sound better than the much brighter sound of the Yahama. Enjoy the music!

Used Upright Piano Owner – Mr. Wilfrido

I walked in the Piano store with little to none knowledge about pianos. I was curious about a piano that was appropriate for a 6yr old kid and within a limited budget. Ms. Maggie was fantastic at explaining the pros and cons of pianos vs. electronic weighed key keyboards and was very patient while showing me the many varieties of pianos the store had to offer. She took all the time necessary to educate me about the right type of piano for a beginner and was never pushy as one would expect from the typical seller. Buying our piano was one of the most pleasurable experiences I have ever had with a salesperson. Ms. Maggie showed incredible enthusiasm towards her job and was very courteous and respectful of my time.

I would not hesitate to recommend Ms. Maggie or the Houston Piano Company to anyone.
