Steve Vitoff – 516 652 0785 -I endorse the work of Ellen Blank and the team at SAMMS. Consistently responsive and understanding, Ellen was able to quickly tune into the full range of practical and emotional dynamics involved in a move that had to happen efficiently and quickly. She also steered my family to excellent auxiliary vendors who were all able to seamlessly deal with the physical move, the tag sale, and the ultimate removal and donation of “junk.”
In terms of furniture layout and staging, Ellen was instrumental in helping my mother suddenly change her living environment from a large suburban house into a new, two-room unit. To make the whole process successful, this critical switch had to be done just right. Even the management at the residential complex was stunned by Ellen’s ability to execute a single-day transformation that instantly delighted my mother.
Laura Gregg – 518 879 6111 - I originally hired Lynne Kleinman and Ellen Blank to help coordinate my mother's move from Long Island to Albany, NY. However, in the middle of the planning my mother passed away unexpectedly. Lynne and Ellen seamlessly transitioned into a role of coordinating the sale of my mother's house in a much shorter time frame than originally planned. They helped to coordinate the sale of valuables and the donation of other items. I was local shortly after my mother's passing but Lynne and Ellen were able to coordinate everything for me once I returned to Albany. The house was on the market for only 4 days before an above-asking offer was accepted. Lynne has continued to work with me closely, providing timely updates and continuing to coordinate the efforts to have the house ready for the closing. This has been a very difficult time for me and having the support and help of Lynne and Ellen through this ordeal has made what could have been a very difficult process go smoother than I expected. I would highly recommend Lynne and Ellen for senior moves and home sales.
Richard Mandrachio – “Lynne Kleinman and her assistant made the process of selling my house effortless. Whether I was present or out of town, they always kept me in the loop, frequently making astute recommendations and even providing referrals along the way. Their knowledgeable research, proficient staging skills, and marketing tactics brought in many immediate bids above the asking price and beyond my expectations, resulting in a quick sale. This team’s combined experience and down –to-earth approach come highly recommended.”
Ian Hayes – 978 524 0432 – “The listing looks great! You and Lynne did a beautiful job”
Ellen and Lynne were indispensable, handling everything from clean-up, staging, and selling the house (getting many good offers on the first day!) to packing and overseeing the movers. Having the SAMMS team available and onsite was a godsend and worth many, many times the investment. I very strongly recommend them!
Anita Kamiel - 718 376 7755 -"Planning, execution, and results were excellent. My sister Ruth recommended them.
"Cathy Bates -Thanks for your excellent work! I will tell you that I have done about 7 long distance moves this summer and have been thoroughly disappointed at the move managers I have worked with. You have been the only one who has gotten the job done without issues. Thanks so much!
Amy Z Cohen – 516 398 8638 - “I can’t thank you enough. I’m so lucky to have you on board to help me with this move. I couldn’t have done it without you and you’ve made it very easy for me”
