During a recent trip to Boston, Connextions Magazine enjoyed a superb stay at 51 Sumner Street, Unit 2, a property owned and managed by Lance Swank of Swank Properties. The cleanliness was impeccable and no detail was overlooked.
Each of Swank Properties offers Condo style apartment living at economical rates. The Sumner Street location offered a fully-equipped kitchen, living room, library, deck, 2 separate bedrooms, 2 full baths, as well as off-street parking. If you are new to apartment renting vs. hotel accommodations, erase the fear from your mind, as check-in is as simple as following a few instructions that are emailed to you prior to your stay. Detailed instructions include where to park and the key box code to enter the secure building. Perfect for those who prefer privacy.
As previously mentioned, the overwhelming attention to detail leaves no questions unanswered. For example, take-out and restaurant menus were placed in the kitchen drawer and directions to the “T” (Boston subway) were located at the front entry, as well as plenty of tourist attraction books, cards and pamphlets. As stated by Lance, “It’s the little things that matter!”
Lance Swank was born in Alexandria, VA, grew up in Western PA, spent 7 years in Hawaii, and finally landed in Boston after attending Grad school in Wellesley, Massachusetts. In addition to the 12 rental property units in the Greater Boston area, Lance’s private development company is currently renovating a 9 unit building. Lance adds, “Without the guidance and support of my spouse, Allan, since 1994, I wouldn’t be able to do all that I do.” Well-respected in his community, Lance devotes a great deal of time to his surrounding neighborhood s, and enjoys working with non-profit organizations, such as dotout.org.
DotOUT is a grassroots, member driven organization committed to the ideals of acceptance, inclusion, fairness, and equality in the community of Dorchester.
First-class service and stay at Swank Properties certainly offers the ultimate traveling experience. Once exposed to this style of "healthy," affordable vacationing, it is not possible to look elsewhere for overnight accommodations. This new found 'comfort of home' with personality and charm creates an eager desire to return.
