"Currently, we have extended our relationship with LDSS to fill the day-to-day needs of my son, which include housing cleaning, personal chef, and laundry services. Lana Drew's services are impeccable." - A. Al Hursy
"Lana is amazing! We live on the West Coast making logistics more challenging. Lana takes care of everything - getting our RISD student packed up for the summer, storage and re-deliver, handling of special items like a guitar and sending art work back home, transportation references. So glad we found her! I definitely recommend Lana." - Pamela Thompson
"Last fall, I moved to Providence to attend the Graduate School at Brown University. Thankfully, I learned of Lana Drew on a visit to Brown the previous Spring, having seen her name on a sign on Thayer. I couldn't have been luckier. Lana is the total package, and she might just want to rename her company Superwoman Enterprises, since it would probably be a more accurate description of her countless talents. Lana is at once a fixer, a leader, a force in real estate , an entrepreneur, a concierge service, but most important, an ally.
When people move to a new place, they need assistance of all kinds. And Lana isn't just providing basic help for those who need to get settled into college or a new home. Lana takes care of people and and she is rare in the area which is often difficult to find, but also the the most appreciated: she cares. It is with abundant enthusiasm and great pleasure that I recommend Lana Drew and her company. Even if you searched high and wide, you couldn't do better." - Adam Epstein
"I am working at the University of Crete, Greece. I visited Brown University for several months as a Fulbright grantee. Lana helped me to find accommodation suitable for me. Not only that! She collected me from the airport and she spent her personal time to make sure that I would feel comfortable. She made me feel like I had someone who cared for me, and someone that I could rely on. The time that I stayed in the US, she often was contacting me willing to help if I had any need. She is a lovely person and an excellent professional. She doesn't work only for profit, but she likes to help people. I would definitely recommend Lana to other. I wish her all the best." - Manolis
"After my son had surgery at the end of the school year, I had no idea how he was going to get his belongings packed and into storage. I had saved Lana's advertisement from a college magazine and out of desperation I gave her a call. Lana took care of everything - packing, storing, shipping an item home, and transportation to the airport. Even when we needed an item in storage taken out early, she was able to locate and personally deliver the item. Lana exceeded all my expectations! I highly recommend Lana Drew Student Services!" - Brown University Parent
"I was born and brought up in Bahrain to Indian parents and have done majority of my high schooling here. I went to Sevenoaks School in the UK before attending Brown in RI. Coming into Brown and looking for accommodation that was within our budget and close to the University location was a big task especially since we didn't know the area too well. This is where Lana stepped in and helped with the entire process. She put us in touch with Bishop properties, facilitating the lease and ensuring a smooth transfer in. I had heard much about Lana from my other international friends so she was definitely first point of contact. What I particularly like about Lana's business is trustworthiness, efficiency and personal touch in getting things done. Going forward she has put me in touch with a number of other college services as well like laundry, security, cleaning, pet care, etc. I would absolutely recommend Lana to all incoming/ established college students! Her help has been invaluable. Thank you Lana!" - Sarath Pillai
"We sent our son off to college at Brown. While we made the exciting trip out as a family to get him settled into his first dorm, when the end of the school year came along and we were trying to determine how to get everything back to Chicago, I found an ad for Lana Drew and her concierge services. That was the single luckiest meeting for us during our son's entire 4-year education in Providence. Not only did Lana and her marvelous team help our son pack all of his belongings up for storage, but they took care of the storage too. Being over 900 hundred miles away, I was unsure about how to find help for our son. He was in middle of final exams and then following exams, he had a tight deadline to be out of the dorm. Lana and her team made this a seamless and painless process. Even better, at the start of every school year, Lana makes sure that all of his items are in the correct dorm room and then has a crew help him to unpack and establish his new room. Lana even helped with a summer stay for our son in Providence. Lana moved him from his dorm, held his belongings for 3 weeks, then had them delivered at his summer apartment. At the end of the summer term, she picked up all his belongings and held them again for 2 weeks until his dorm was ready for move in and the school year. Her service has made being a long distance parent an easy reality.
Lana will provide a true One-Stop Service for your Providence College Student. The best part is that she understands as she herself has gone through the college experience with her family. Lana will even go above and beyond. Will had a rug that was in dire need of a good cleaning. Lana had the rug cleaned and ready for use when the school year started. Lana and her Team are absolutely the BEST!!" - Jane Barclay
"Lana takes pride in what she does and takes a personal interest in her client's happiness. She is more than a realtor or a concierge, she is like a surrogate mom on the the East Coast. We highly recommend LDSS." - Michael & Teresa McNamara
"Wow! You are fast and efficient. Sad my baby girl just finished her freshman year of college. Thank you so much for being there to help her when I am far away. We truly appreciate and value all of your help. So happy to have found you." - Lori K
"I'm the founder and CEO of a small boutique hotel in Stockholm, Sweden, that is part of the small luxury hotel, SLH Group. We have been open since 2012 and gained an amazing recognision world wide and been awarded several prestigous awards and prices. Being a Swede living in Europe and having two kids at Brown while being a control freak and hands on mother, is sometimes very stressful. It is often difficult to know how to help, how to organise and understand how everything works on campus.
This summer I met Lana, my savior, my lucky star. We started off over the phone and later in person. Lana is someone to call for every question; someone who helps, someone who understands. Lana is extremely professional and efficient, hands on, responds and gets back to you within a blink of an eye. Lana has helped with setting up both my kids's living spaces this year, one dorm and one room in a shared house. She went to Ikea with an extensive wish list, managed to get what we needed, and made sure everything was assembled in time. She also added pieces from other furniture stores including Bed, Bath and Beyond and West Elm. She fixed everything from roller blinds to wall mounted shelving systems. Lana's services include almost everything, anything from questions regarding different authorizations, weekly laundry services to arranging pick-up or transfers from Logan Airport. A good example from this week - a small emergency, I needed to get a key from Providence to NYC within a day!!! What do i do? I called Lana, she had an immediate solution and arranged it within hours!!!
For the kids to have someone to call for help and assistance with small or big issues in everyday life is invaluable and makes both their life and my life as a parent a lot easier." - Jeannette Mix
