Aging in place

“Working with Helena was definitely a positive experience. She listened to what I wanted to do, guided me in making appropriate choices, and had the resources available to do what needed to be done- for which I am very grateful and pleased with the result.”  -Pat S.
“When we wanted to build our dream home, Helena brought it beautifully to life. And when we wanted to downsize, she guided us through the redesign of our oceanfront condo, including features that enhance the likelihood of our staying there regardless of future needs.” -Cheryl and Tom
