Client Testimonials

“My husband passed away and due to things that grew out of my control leading up to that I was in way over my head. The staff at Sands & Associates, especially Darlene, gave me several clear and concise options and it was so good to be with someone that was able to make a very uncomfortable situation feel like a weight being lifted off my back. I couldn't recommend a company more, they bent over backwards to help with every problem, even the last minute ones that I thought would be catastrophic, just seemed to disappear with Darlene's advice and help. My life is 100% better because I made the decision to go to Sands & Associates.”

Tom
