Sean Kelly - Testimonials

  • If you ever happen to lose something you are in great hands with Sean!!! (2018)


    Sean we cant thank you enough for helping us out! When you are so stressed from losing something so valuable you are rarely thinking clearly. We all started searching the lake for hours until it got dark which caused the ring to go deeper into the sand making it impossible to find without your help. Luckily we came into contact with you and its unbelievable how quickly you were able to get out there and how soon you were able to find the ring.

    For anyone who has lost something Sean was extremely responsive and is just such a genuinely nice and honest person. It was a long drive for him and he made it a priority to come out the next morning (we spoke at 1 am) because we were planning to leave back to New Jersey. If you ever happen to lose something you are in great hands with Sean!!!

  • Thank you Sean Kelly from the very bottom of my heart. (2018)


    I will be forever grateful to Sean Kelly for finding my wedding ring. I was devastated, hopeless, and quite positive that I would never see or wear my most valued possession again. We were far north camping with family on vacation when Mr Kelly left the message that my ring was found – he wanted us to enjoy vacation
