Professional Organizing reviews in Fort Lauderdale
I got a call fairly promptly to set up an appointment for the service. They were pretty busy and I had to wait a few weeks which was fine. I was told that two women would be coming to my home to provide the service. I was surprised that the owner did not come. When I asked why there are two people going out, I was told that it was for the safety of the women. I could understand that.
About a week before the service, I e-mailed the owner to let her know that I had another meeting and had to change the time from 10 to 10:30. I was told that would not be a problem.
I came home about 10:25 to find out that the two women had been there at 10:00. It was great that they were punctual but they had not been informed of the change. The owner later apologized for not informing them.
the two women were very lovely. They first were working on the storage area where our luggage was. At first both of them appeared to be working in this one area. I suggested that since there were two of them, perhaps one should do something else. One started going through things in the bedroom.
After the two hours ( $69 worth of the deal), everything was on the floor, etc.
Overall, the hallway closet with cookbooks and entertaining items looked good. The women who came out to the home also do housecleaning for this company. If someone has never worked with a professional organizer, they would not know the difference. I have worked with professional organizers and I would say that these women really did a lot of tidying up. I am sure that they have been trained but there is no one who is managing them including for time management. The cost seemed to be either the same or more expensive than most organizers and these women were not even NAPO organizers. I did use the service because of the "deal".
Before they left,

So - it did cost me more than the "deal" price and they were not NAPO organizers.
The office looked great when they finished. Of course my next concern was "will I be able to find anything?" That was an unfounded fear. I have had no problems putting my hands on everything I have needed as I prepare for "tax-time." I also am amazed at how much extra space I now have! I no longer dread opening the office door!
Although the work was done on January 29, 2013, today (February 18) is the first day that I am able to evaluate their work, since I haven't had time to go through all six boxes and make sure that documents needed to file 2012 taxes were kept at home rather than in storage.
I was very surprised at what I found. There were often two different folders in different storage boxes for similar items (e.g., "mortgages", "Social Security", etc.). I had sold a house in Boston in 2012 and needed documentation to calculate capital gains tax, and I had asked that all tax records for the past several years be kept at home. Most were in boxes marked for storage, as were nearly all receipts for work I had done on the house in the past few years (important for tax purposes). I had to remove and re-sort the files into appropriate boxes, keeping more than one box of files at home.
On the whole, I am disappointed in the work done and would not hire
We removed everything from the closet; helped fold towels and sheets and even started wiping down the interior (21 years of cramming as much as would fit into the closet), as I began sorting - as instructed, with which he also helped. With sorted piles around the house
He insisted we place the newly sorted, somewhat full bins back in the closet with the most frequently needed and used bins easiest to reach. Note* I was taught to always have some space in each bin for additions.
Once we finished the organization of the formerly haphazard store-all closet,
Some of the best things about the overall service:
He was always gentle with his frequent, needed reminders to get back to my assigned sorting tasks, while reiterating our goals.
My closet has stayed well organized for 5 months now and it HAS been time saving and less frustating.
I haven't needed or purchased new bandaides since, which is a record.
I didn't need to purchase new organizing bins because we used what I had in the closet and found a few more that we needed.
I am now taking steps to embark on my goal of organizing every room in my house over the next year (and the very nice - but crammed full storage shed.) My critical first step is to schedule my next appointment.
This has been the most satisfying experience of managing a household I've had in my 30+ years.
The only improvement in services that I could recommend would be to allow voice mails to be left at all times. Tragically,at 5:00am the morning of my subsequent appointment, a decision was made to take my
