Emily Jordan
Team Coordinator

Welcome Emily Jordan to the Swinden Homes Team as our new Team Coordinator

The Swinden Homes Team is informing you of our transition of staff. We are very excited to bring Emily Jordan to our group as Team Coordinator. Emily comes well qualified and is a pleasure to work with. Emily is replacing Alison MacLean.  Alison has coordinated the Swinden Homes Team for seven years.

Alison leaves with our greatest endorsement as she relocates to Northern Minnesota for her husband’s career opportunity and job transfer. Her family is excited about the next challenges in life.  While we will certainly miss her we wish her and her family well in the northern portion of our beautiful country.

Emily and the Swinden Homes Team intend to not miss a beat in providing our clients with professional and personal service as our learning curve straightens, but please be patient with us. Larry and Laura promise to always be just a text, email, or phone call away.  Know that we will continue to care for you well.
                                                                                       We care more.
