!st CHOICE To The Rescue!
"When I finally made the decision to no longer live alone, I had no idea what to do next. 1st CHOICE came to my rescue! I was not only given several excellent options, but I was also given the information I needed to make a wise decision for myself. I'm particularly grateful that you helped me with the sale of my home, and even made sure my move went smoothly! And thank you as well, for taking me to look at my options. I am thankful that you let me make the choice on my own, but I'm equally grateful that you were there to listen to me." - Betty
