Home OrganizingTake back your home from the invasion of clutter. Whether you just have one or two “hot spots” or the entire house is in disarray, you can have the home of your dreams. Any area of your home, large or small, can be organized so that it works for you. Kitchens, bathrooms, bedrooms, playrooms, home offices, garages, attics, basements, on-site and off-site storage units each need their own storage solutions and clutter management systems. Learn how to use your space more efficiently to hold what you use, where you use it, and how to use your space effectively so that what you store doesn’t take over how you live.

Closet System Design
As a former closet designer for a major closet company, I have the ability to design floor-based closet organizing systems that conform to closet industry standards. Closet organization systems can apply to more than just closets. Custom shelving units can be designed for kitchen pantries, garages, arts and craft rooms, playrooms and entertainment centers. Since I have no affiliation with a particular company, you have the freedom to shop different closet companies with my designs or have a private carpenter build your unit.
If you want to sell your home, the perceived value will be higher if your home is stripped of all clutter and the furniture and decor are rearranged in a way that accentuates the size and light of each room. Using the items you already have, the house can be made more appealing to potential home buyers. In this housing market, where there is an average of 10 homes on the market for every home buyer, competition is fierce, and you’ll need every edge you can get. Home staging will give you that edge and may help your house sell faster.
Moving, Packing & Unpacking
Packing for a move doesn’t have to be stressful. Imagine knowing exactly what is in each box and where they will go at the destination point. You can either learn the process so that you can do it yourself, or you can have assistance the entire way through. This includes the planning, sorting, inventory, wrapping, boxing, and labeling. Moving into a new household often creates confusion because of the different layout, cupboard and closet space and so on. On the destination end, imagine being able to open up your boxes and distribute the contents without any guesswork. This can be the reality with as little or as much coaching as you need. If you plan to have a yard sale or estate sale, this too can be painless if the proper preparations are made along the way.
Senior Citizen Transitions
Senior citizens often have unique circumstances that need special attention. Help is available for events such as retirement reorganization, home downsizing or long term travel plans. Even transitioning into an assisted living facility can often be made easier with an objective outsider lending a hand.
Estate Clearing & Executor Assistance
After the death of a loved one is a terribly sensitive time for all the survivors, especially the executor, who must additionally handle the legal process. The two main branches of the probate process include the processing of the physical property, and the managing of the estate paperwork and all the related tasks and deadlines. Processing the physical estate may or may not include an estate sale, but either way, it can often be hard to maintain an objective view about what to keep and what to let go. Families with multiple siblings may find it difficult to come to agreement about how to distribute personal effects. Estate paperwork can quickly get out of control and may require it’s own dedicated filing and tracking system. Consider bringing a third party in to assist the family with any of these areas. These matters are always handled with the utmost consideration for your feelings while offering a range of unbiased options and suggestions for how to proceed.
