How does a top-notch realtor, rental agent and savvy business woman become the go-to guardian angel to students attending East Coast Ivy League Colleges.
It started one day back in 2010. I received a phone call from a New York City executive who needed a 6-week rental for a very prestigious family. One of the wealthiest families in the world.
As a well-connected realtor and rental agent, I was able to find the perfect place for this family pretty quickly. Little did I know, this was just the beginning.
Because this family was completely new to the area, they needed someone who had the right connections and persuasive attitude to get stuff done with ease and speed. Someone they could trust to initiate, manage and organize a wide variety of lifestyle projects, tasks and services.
So they hired me.
I became their number one resource and go-to gal for everything. From hiring the best contractor to construct a badminton court to locating the best dry cleaner.
When their son started as a sophomore at Brown University, they asked me to find him the perfect apartment. I did. And then I had it furnished, decorated, and fully set up, from the security system to linens and towels. I even stocked the kitchen with appliances and all his favorite foods.
He loved it. And so did his parents. The news spread like wildfire.
It didn't take long before other parents were calling and asking me if I could do the same for their children. Many of these parents lived outside of the area and didn't have a clue about how to find a safe, comfortable living space for their child in a strange, new city.
Other parents called in a panic because their child had to find a way to pack, clean and get out of their dorm room or apartment at the end of the school year. I handled it all. From their travel arrangements to packing, storing or shipping their belongings. And that's how our Pack, Store and More service was born.
Soon, I became THE person to call anytime one of my students needed anything. From personal shopping to personal chefs. From getting their drivers license to assembling the furniture they bought at IKEA. Anytime my students needed anything, including a soft shoulder to cry on, they knew they could depend on me to have an answer, solution or service provider to get it done.

Parents and students know I can solve problems and find solutions no one else can. They also know how much I truly care about the students whose well being is in my charge.
People often ask me, why do you do it? Why do you choose to be on call for students who need everything from a sushi chef for a spur of the moment party to packing and storing their belongings at the end of the school year?
I do it because I love it. It's a great feeling to be able to provide the perfect solution at the moment someone needs it. And I get such deep joy and satisfaction in knowing that my services allow students to be safe, secure and fully supported throughout their college experience.
Plus, I've met some of the most wonderful, fascinating people from all over the world, most of whom consider me their friend or extended family. And at the end of every day, I get to sit back and smile. Because I know I've helped a lot of kids. And made it possible for a lot of parents to sleep at night.

It would be my honor to help you choose the services that will insure your child's safety, comfort and well being.
