What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
The initial consultation is free of charge and is to be no more than 15 minutes. During this consultation we will view the area(s) you want organized and I will answer all of your questions. If you choose to avail of my services, I will take notes and then write up a contract stating the hourly price and outlining exactly what work you would like done and we will review it together to confirm we are on the same page.
A $200 deposit will be required to be placed on my calendar. Let me explain why I do this - I was having quite a few clients canceling at the last minute which left me without a job and in the meantime, I had passed on other leads. Since I put this $200 deposit policy into effect, cancellations have stopped. If the job is cancelled, the deposit is non-refundable.
If the job is cancelled, the $200 deposit is non-refundable. Rescheduling is permitted one time before forfeiting the deposit. I have a four (4) hour workday minimum. If you require purchases to be made on your behalf, I will need to know your budget and receipts will be provided. Nothing will be purchased without your permission.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Real life situations have become my training and education; organizing is my passion.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I was born to organize! Even when I was a toddler, all the pieces to specific toys had to be together before I put them away. If I was missing a piece, I would search for it until I located it. Growing up, my dressers and closets had to be set up perfectly. Everything had a place. In grade school, I organized my mom’s pantry, I grouped the same items together, made a list, hung it on the pantry door and when anybody took anything out of the pantry, they had to remove it off the list, and then write it on the grocery list. In high school, I organized my dad’s home office, I could not take the clutter, once I was done, he loved it. Fast forward to when I had my first child, all of the clothes had to be in a specific drawer, the closet was hung by color, there was a place for everything in the nursery. I even alphabetized the baby food! That way, I could look in the cupboard to find exactly what I wanted and knew exactly what was needed to buy. All throughout my life I have been organized in every aspect of my life. Then family and friends started asking me to help them get organized and that progressed into helping organize for a family friend, or a friend of a friend. This is how organizing became my hobby.
What types of customers have you worked with?
I have worked with a diversified clientele.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Do your research, meet with various organizers, listen closely to what they say and build a good rapport and level of trust with her/him.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
To me, it’s about the client showing me what they need organized, then asking questions such as: How are they going to accomplish this? What do they need to accomplish it? Are they comfortable with the project and are they sure they can complete it to your standards? Also keep the lines of communication open as there will always be more questions that will arise on both sides as the project(s) move forward.
