Our Team

Our team is committed to providing excellent customer service to our clients and their families as they go through what can be a very trying time of transition. We pride ourselves on helping families through the rightsizing and relocation process start to finish. Along the way, we often hold their hands, answer questions, and maybe even shed some tears or have a good laugh. Our number one goal is always to make the transition as easy as possible, and to remove as much of the stress as we can.

Our Mission, Values & Vision

Our Mission (what we do):

Change happens and transitions are inevitable. Our specialty is serving seniors. We offer rightsizing, relocation services, and estate sales through our customized process. Our services are as diverse as our clients.

Our Values  (how we do it):

Respectful – We listen to, and value, what our clients say. We are non-judgmental and respect their feelings and choices. We respect their lives by respecting their possessions.
Reliable – We got this. We are with our clients from start to finish.
Genuine – We are honest. We are transparent and straight-forward about our services. We want clients to make the best choice for themselves.
Mindful of our Impact – We know that this transition will create lasting memories. We do our very best to make sure they are positive ones. We recognize that our impact does not stop after our “work” is done. We are mindful of our community at large. We donate, recycle and properly dispose of materials.
Compassion – We treat others as we want our parents to be treated. We understand transitions can be difficult and we meet our clients where they are.

Our Vision  (why we do it):

We care about people. We minimize the burden during times of transition so families can have peace of mind.

Our Work

We love what we do!  We help clients sort, pack, manage move day and unpack.  We also set up and run the best estate sales in Lincoln, NE!  And, we have some fun along the way!

Our Story

Changing Spaces SRS was started in 2008 by sisters and co-founders Linda Cotter and Kelley See. They saw a need for a service like ours when they moved their parents out of their large home near Auburn, NE.  After the transition was finished, they looked to each other and proclaimed “Boy, that was A LOT of work!”  They began to wonder what other families in this situation do – especially families who don’t have children nearby to help.  Thus, the idea for Changing Spaces SRS was born. Jeannine Bryant entered into the partnership with the co-founders and another part-owner, Susan Reese, in 2010.  For four years, the company was owned (and grown!) by these women working together.

In 2014, her co-owners retired and Jeannine Bryant was able to buy out their shares to become sole owner. Jeannine remembers, with humor, her first year with the company (2010) and that 20 clients were served that year.  “We were so proud and impressed with ourselves!”  In 2018, the Changing Spaces SRS team helped over 150 clients with a transition.  Demand continues to rise, and thankfully, we have been able to grow to meet the demand.  Now, in our 11th year of business, our team has grown to 26 hard-working individuals who have a heart for helping our clients and their families through times of transition. They offer compassion and expertise to clients who are going through the rightsizing process.
