A Professional Home Organizer is someone that helps bring order and efficiency to your life by overcoming clutter and disorganization. As a Professional Home Organizer, I’m a coach, a guide, and a problem-solver – I’ll work with you to figure out how to develop systems and processes that work for you and your lifestyle.
The short answer is, all kinds! Organizing can help simplify your home and help it run smoothly, no matter what the project is. You might have a messy garage or bonus room where you just don’t feel the space is maximized. Maybe you feel like your home office is a dark hole of papers and projects you keep losing, or that your bedroom closet is giving you a frantic feeling because you just can’t find what you need every morning. I can help organize a home that you’re getting ready to show, or help sort through an estate during a difficult time in your life. Additionally, whether downsizing or moving into a bigger home, consider using a professional organizer when you pack/unpack as well so that you feel set up for success!Professional Organizers don’t just work in your homes – I will also work with you to organize your office or business to create efficient, inviting work spaces. Save time and energy by making sure information or supplies are easy to find and readily available!
It’s entirely up to you. We can work together through the entire process, or I can work on my own, or somewhere in the middle. If you or anyone else wants to help, it’ll get the job done faster, and in the end, save you money. I can have you be hands-on the whole time or you can feel free to step out and leave me to it!
Simply send me a message – or give me a call – and tell me what needs to be addressed, what rooms/areas you’d like organized, and any other details you’d like to include. I will then get back with you and we can set up a time for our initial meeting.
First, I meet you, find out what are your challenges, and what are your goals. Then I will evaluate the space(s), we will discuss what problems you have with the space(s), what you would like to see change, and what is currently working for you. Then we will formulate a plan of action, and schedule our organizing sessions.
Will my sessions be confidential?
Absolutely! All meetings, conversations, and questions are between you and I, and no one else. If you give me permission to share your before & after photos, they will not show your name or address.
What if my house is too messy? Do I need to clean beforehand so I am not embarrassed?
It’s important that we see the project “as is” so that we know what your true needs are and can talk to you about ways you use the space. Tidying up beforehand won’t give me a good idea of what’s going to help you get/stay organized. There’s no need to be embarrassed – we’re not here to judge you in any way!!
Does getting organized mean that you are going to make me throw away things I care about?
During our sessions, my role is a coach and not your boss! You are ultimately still the decision-maker when it comes to deciding what to get rid of. I’ll help you decide whether or not something is valuable to you and how to best use it.
How long does organizing take? What if I only need you for a few hours or have a specific schedule to work around (moving, etc)?
Not every project is huge but there is a minimum of 3 hours for each project. We find that you need this amount of time in in order to see successful results. If you have a particular project that requires specific timing or centers around a certain scheduled event, we’ll discuss this during your consult.
Each client is different and how long something will take depends on an individual’s needs and own process, as well as the amount of sorting required or if there are many decisions to make about different items. During the organizing process, we’ll be discussing ways for you to maintain your organized space so that you can keep seeing results!
What are your rates?
I charge $75 an hour, and $25 an hour for shopping. Weekends or evenings may have increased rates, which are agreed upon before starting work.
A travel fee may be charged if your location is further away than usual.
I pride myself on the personal touch and recognize that every individual person has different needs or situations. For example, during our needs assessment, I’ll be able to tell whether we need to focus on organizing versus de-cluttering. Every client is going to have different challenges and solutions. Therefore, instead of offering a “one-size-fits-all” style package, we can discuss long-term rates and individualized packages at the time of booking, particularly if a project is going to take a significant amount of hours. Additionally, during the time we’re working together, our phone/text communication is always open and at no additional charge! I’m here to work with you and support you through this process!
What payments are accepted?
I accept cash, checks and all major credit cards, and payment is due at the end of each work session (each day).
