Testimonials

"I'd lived in my house for over 40 years before moving to an assisted living community and I contacted The Dutiful Daughter to help me. I would recommend her wholeheartedly. Her sons were wonderful and her husband even fixed the leg on my old china cabinet. She was an angel from heaven. They are a full-service firm."

"Thank you so much for your efforts on behalf of my parents. Closing their home of over forty years was understandably hard for them. Your competence and caring attitude made them much more comfortable with this difficult process. Donating items to worthy charities also made the process more tolerable to them. I want to thank you specifically for your attention to detail and trustworthiness. Finding and returning my mother’s gold bracelet put a nice finish to a job well done."

"I’ve used her and her sons four or five times now. They are extremely trustworthy. They will go through meticulously to look through documents, bank statements. They call me to say we’ve found this or we’ve found that. And they are extremely efficient. They’re truly nice people and a pleasure to work with."

"We have hired the Dutiful Daughter to clean out our house and move to a retirement community. Six months later they packed and moved us to another community and finally after a year we moved to a third home with our daughter and the Wlochowski’s moved us again. You feel so comfortable. It’s more of a family atmosphere. I didn’t worry when they packed things up. We trusted them to do the job."

"I wanted to be sure to let you know just how pleased I was when I walked through the house on Brookside Drive. I would not have believed it if I had not seen it with my own eyes. The house looked remarkably empty! You did a wonderful job cleaning everything out and I know it wasn’t easy. There is no way I could have sold the house by the end of the year without all your hard work. Quite frankly, the house hadn’t looked so good in years. I’m sure you have more references than you will ever need, but I would be happy to provide one for you any time."

"A few months ago you completed the estate sale of my mother’s household belongings by selling the last of the Hummels. I happened to be thinking about it recently in the context of how well you had done. What brought this to mind is that one of the people with whom I work was in need of the same service and she asked for advice. I told her that the key factor in whether an estate sale is a success or disappointment is the caliber of the person who runs the sale. Thinking back to my own experience, I could not have been more pleased with the help you and Aaron gave me. You were outstanding! You always did what you said you’d do. Beyond that, what you accomplished consistently exceeded my expectations."

"I want to thank you for the wonderful job you did on my mother’s home. We couldn’t believe how clean it was and everything was removed. It was a pleasure to work with you and also your kindness and thoughtfulness with my mother."

"I am writing to you on behalf of a family from our Waddell School community. In early May they had a house fire and had to leave with only the clothes they were wearing. The family is a mother and four children ages 6, 8, 10 and 11. Everything was lost in the fire. We found them an apartment in East Hartford and want to thank you for your generous donations of beds and household items."

"You did a fantastic job selling the contents of our home and getting so much more for the items sold then we anticipated. Working on Saint Martin in the Caribbean was quite a different atmosphere then you were use to, but wow, what a successful sale and clean out. Thanks again."
