What is it like to hire Professional Home Organizers?
Updated: Aug 18, 2022
Curious about what it's like to work with professional home organizers? Here's the process in a nutshell!
You begin by filling out a short form on my website so I know a little background about your home and life, then I text you to set up a 15-minute phone consultation so I can learn more about your needs and explain how the process works. During that call, I listen as you tell me more about what's going on in your home. I may ask who else you live with, the size of your home, and any specific goals you may have (i.e. "my mother-in-law is visiting next month and the guest bedroom is a wreck!").
Once I understand your needs, I'll explain our package options, which range from the $900 Fresh Start Package all the way up to the $9,900 Platinum VIP Package. I normally send a team of two organizers, one Lead Organizer and one Assistant Organizer, for each session, and most sessions are three-hour blocks of time. Three hours seems to be the magic amount of time it takes to tackle any area or category - just before you reach the point of "decision fatigue"! We try to make sessions as fun, or at least as painless, as possible, and want you to look forward to each time we're in your home.
If you're ready, we look at our calendars together and get some sessions on the books. I'll email you a contract to sign as well as an invoice for 50% of the package, with the other half due when we're halfway through your hours. During your first session, the team will ask you to tour them through your entire home (or as much as you're willing to show us) so they can get a big picture idea of the project. They may ask to peek in cabinets, closets, and drawers to see how much storage space is available. This takes about 20-30 minutes, then they'll make a recommendation about where to begin and jump right in! We provide bags for donations, and sometimes set up a table for sorting things into like categories.
The process of decluttering is the same for nearly every area of a home: We clear out a space, sort like items together, help you make decisions about what to keep, donate, or toss, then put things back mindfully, with function and efficiency in mind.
Our goal is that you'll see and feel the difference in your home after even just the first session. ✨ We'll lovingly "hold space" for you as you process some emotional attachment to stuff, and we'll help you hone your decision-making skills so you feel empowered to manage your home moving forward.
Different organizers have very different ways of doing things, and I continue to refine our processes as we grow together as a team (of 7 strong nowadays!).
What areas of your home are cluttered or disorganized? How can my team and I support you in creating a home you love, where you experience the Essences of Ease & Joy?
What I'm Learning:
I'm finishing up the 10-week Stage to Scale course where I've created a Signature Talk that is compelling, authentic, and will lead to more business. What groups of busy, professional women do you know who could benefit from hearing from me? Do you or someone you know host a podcast for women? Send 'em my way! Feel free to text or call me at 352-888-4834.
What I'm Listening to:
I've always LOVED jazz and have been obsessively listening to Vincent Herring. Feel free to send me your favorite jazz tunes, artists, or albums! I adore finding new music to enjoy.
Quotes I'm pondering:
“The starting point of all achievement is DESIRE. Keep this constantly in mind. Weak desire brings weak results, just as a small fire makes a small amount of heat.”
“Every adversity, every failure, every heartbreak, carries with it the seed of an equal or greater benefit.”
“One who has loved truly, can never lose entirely. Love is whimsical and temperamental. Its nature is ephemeral, and transitory. It comes when it pleases, and goes away without warning. Accept and enjoy it while it remains, but spend no time worrying about its departure. Worry will never bring it back.”
