Who is Mandy’s Cleaning Service? Or, perhaps, the more fun question is, who is Mandy?

If you ask Mandy to share her story with you, she may tell you about a few conversations that had a powerful impact on her as a person and later as a business owner. In the early years a customer told Mandy, “The little things matter,” then proceeded to tell Mandy how much she appreciated that Mandy went above and beyond and even cleaned tiny things you might not notice. Where does a work ethic like that come from?


“When I was young and baby-sitting, my Mom encouraged me to not simply watch the kids but to pick up around the house and clean the dishes.” She taught Mandy that going above and beyond would make such a difference. These two conversations greatly shaped who Mandy would become as a person, and they set the standard for how she would one day run her business—with great attention to the little things. So, what’s the story behind Mandy’s Cleaning Service?


That story began 15 years ago. Having two small children at the time, Mandy chose not to go to work, yet she wanted to contribute financially to meet the needs of the home. While attending personal finance classes, a few friends suggested Mandy start a cleaning service and even said they would help her find a few clients. She took her friends up on the offer and began cleaning. It was just a few homes, but the phone began to ring. Usually it was friends of a friend or people she already knew. Every bit of it was word of mouth. The first year was slow, but year two picked up enough speed that Mandy had to recruit help.

Five years into the business, they transitioned from contractors to employees and launched a new website, and “things grew like crazy after that.” One day while cleaning a home, Mandy said her phone would not stop ringing, and she realized this business was going to become much bigger than she had imagined. How does a business suddenly experience explosive growth?


Mandy believes it comes down to relationships and treating every customer like they are your only customer. It became a standard practice to implement a preference sheet, which included a variety of things each customer preferred, even down to where the customer wanted the cleaning technician to park upon arrival. She also wanted to add a personal touch, which included text messaging customers before cleaning, after cleaning, and even following up weeks later. This type of care would later revisit Mandy in many ways. She quotes one customer who said, “A house isn’t clean unless it’s Mandy-clean.” When her youngest child was a newborn, customers brought Mandy gifts and gave her gift cards.


Mandy would also tell you she places a high value on her employees and enjoys giving them flexible hours, which frees them up to juggle life more easily. She describes her team as honest, hard working, and determined and has learned that people are willing to pay for that level of service. How she leads her team has contributed to their success.


It’s humbling to look back and see how far the business has come since 2009. Having spent 15 years doing business in their home town, Mandy’s Cleaning Service looks to expand their reach outside of Mobile in the days to come. “I want even more people to feel relief that they can enjoy friends and family without being concerned about the house.”


As Mandy’s Cleaning Service looks to grow and expand outside of Mobile, the mission will always be the same. “The little things still matter,” she said. “It’s still about going above and beyond and doing those special things for every customer.”

It’s more than cleaning your home. It’s about caring for you.

5 Reasons to Explore Reverse Mortgages

These unique financial products offer several advantages to eligible homeowners: 1.    Supplement Retirement Income: One of the primary benefits of a reverse mortgage is the ability to convert home equity into cash, providing a valuable source of supplemental income during retirement. This can be especially beneficial for individuals with limited savings or those looking to enhance their lifestyle without taking on additional debt. 2.    No Monthly Mortgage Payments: Unlike traditional mortgages, reverse mortgages do not require monthly payments. Instead, the loan is repaid when the homeowner sells the home, moves out, or passes away. This feature can ease financial burdens for retirees on fixed incomes, allowing them to remain in their homes without worrying about ongoing mortgage payments. 3.    Stay in Your Home:   One of the most significant advantages of a reverse mortgage is the ability to stay in your home for as long as you live.

Borrowers can choose to receive a lump sum, a line of credit, regular monthly payments, or a combination of these options. 5.    No Repayment Until You Leave the Home: With a reverse mortgage, the loan does not need to be repaid until the last borrower permanently leaves the home. This provides peace of mind for borrowers, knowing that they can access their home equity without immediate repayment obligations.Reverse mortgages offer a valuable option for retirees seeking to unlock the wealth tied up in their homes while maintaining the comfort and security of home ownership.  Contact Nicole Cramer with Anchor Funding to find out more about how a Reverse Mortgages.  She can be reached at 251-349-9891

Estate Plan Check-Ups

Estate Plan Check-UpsEffective estate planning is personal, and its more than just deciding who to leave your assets to once you die.  Effective estate planning  is a comprehensive process that encompasses pre-need planning: health care decisions, financial management, and maintaining a delicate balance between independence and security.  Like your preventive doctor visits, you should regularly check in on your estate plan to ensure it fits your current needs, considers and plans for potential future care needs, and will give effect to your wishes now and in the future. Generally, estate planning involves creating a last will and testament, possibly a revocable trust, possibly an asset protection trust or a supplemental needs trust for a loved one who is unable to manage finances or may be vulnerable to abuse or exploitation.  Estate planning also involves important advanced directives, such as a durable financial power of attorney, a health care power of attorney, and a living will.   Creating an estate plan, or getting my affairs in order, tends to be an item on our to-do lists, for us to get done and move on to the next thing. However, while it may not be something you have to look at every month, or even every year, once your initial estate plan is completed, it is something that needs to be reviewed with some regularity.Most people get an annual physical when they are healthy, not when they are sick. They do this because they want to proactively spot any issues that could cause them to become ill in the future. The same concept can and should be applied when it comes to reviewing and updating your estate plan. Your estate plan may be healthy now, but you want to make sure that it stays that way by checking it regularly, to ensure it fits your needs and family circumstances, protects and provides for you now, and  accomplishes your goals and wishes in the future.
