“To my customer: I may not have the answer, but I’ll find it…”

One of the most popular of customer service quotations is this:

“To my customer: I may not have the answer, but I’ll find it. I may not have the time, but I’ll make it. I may not be the biggest, but I’ll be the most committed to your success.”

No known source is provided. The lines date to at least April 1995, when they appeared in a California newspaper advertisement for Judy Silva Realty.
