OUR COMMON BOND

We share a common story with many of our clients.  We have both been through the emotional pain and loss of loved ones and more specifically, parents.  We have dealt with the frustrations and blessings of assisted living, skilled nursing, and hospice and we feel your pain and exhaustion.  We know the obstacles and dilemma's of what to do with a home full of memories and a lifetime of accumulation.  We have compassion for the fact that it's more than a $40 crystal wine glass,  its a lifetime of toasting friends and family at the Holidays.  So you see, we feel that Swanson-Young Estate Sales is a service to help you with the overwhelming task of liquidating an estate and look forward to working for you!
