TESTIMONIALS

Working with Russ and The Concierge Service

Feeling thankful for the Concierge Service this morning, especially Russ and Debbie for all of the information, guidance and support. My son heard back from most of his EA schools this week. He was accepted into UMass Amherst school of engineering, Clark, Fairfield, Loyola MD and Union all with their highest levels of merit scholarship. The process worked!”

Michelle A.

parent of high school senior

I would say being a member of the Concierge Service felt like someone had our back and walked besides us through the process. Being part of this group made me feel more confident with the whole process. I was able to give pertinent information to my daughter. She was very calm but disappointed her school didn’t assist with the process. The Concierge Service definitely filled a gap for us. The school counselor is available for current academic issues, social problems and helping with extra curricular activities but my daughter’s school just isn’t set up to provide college counseling. The Concierge Service definitely filled that gap for us.

Lynn T.

parent of high school senior

As a member of the Concierge Services, we know that we are receiving valuable step-by-step guidance on a monthly basis. The important lessons we are learning allow us to stay informed and less stressed. This has definitely been a wonderful investment for our family.

Donna Y.

parent of high school senior 

The Concierge service provided me with enough support and feedback that I didn’t feel lost in the process. I joined to get help with my 2nd child’s college search so I wasn’t “new” to the whole thing. The reasonable price of the service and the expertise that Russ provided was just the right fit for me.
