CHECK IT OFF!- New Personal Assistant Company Opens in Litchfield County

Do you have a home that needs to be cleaned out? An estate sale to manage? Does taking care of the logistics of your elderly parents’ life overwhelm you? Too busy to get all your own errands done? Do you have a second home that needs overseeing? Two local women have recently combined their experience in real estate and direct sales to form a new personal assistant company called Check It Off LLC. Susan Smith and Diane Carroll saw a need for helping others in their everyday lives and decided to go into business together to meet that need. The list of what they can do is lengthy and if they can’t do it, they have the resources to help you find someone who can. For further information, they can be reached at 860-480-8091 or at their website,
