The Local: Laney Robein, Owner of Laney & Co.
With so many people decking their halls to get ready for the holidays, we checked in with our resident holiday decor expert Laney Robein of LANEY&CO, a full-service personal concierge firm. Laney has just finished flipping houses from Halloween decorations to Christmas, and the holidays are one of LANEY&CO’s busiest times of year supporting clients by taking care of their holiday decor from start to finish, creating gift lists, helping with holiday party planning, and more. These are just a few of the many tasks that Laney does for her clients, so if you could use an extra set of hands to manage your to-do list, contact her here to enlist her help for the new year.
