    girlFriday Cleaning Services-Your Life's Concierge
    Andreea came to the townhouse (for free) to assess the situation. She was very sympathetic to and understanding of our situation. She gave us a reasonable quote and planned for two days of packing and two days of unpacking/organizing. We asked Andreea to do the best she could to make our new house a functional home without any guidance. In other words, unpack us in logical way so that we can shower with soap, make coffee, change diapers, etc. Andreea and her teammate did that and more! They were kind, timely, and self-sufficient. They also completed both the packing and unpacking in less time than planned which was a nice surprise. Once we get settled in, I intend to hire Andreea for some additional organizing services. I���m a big fan of girlFriday now!

    Everything Closets
    We contacted Lonny about getting a quote for our new master closet. Everything closets was one of 3 major closet companies that we took bids from for the project. Lonny listened to our needs ad wants and created a closet that is amazing. Not only was his cost significantly less than his competitors, the design was much more useful. He came to the appointment on time and was very thoughtful putting the presentation together - which also came in on time. He gave us a delivery date and ended up coming a few days earlier(we were very happy about that). The installers were very friendly, clean, punctual and made sure to take care of all the new work that had been done in the rest of the house. We will be using him again for other projects and are very happy with our decision!

    They arrived on time. The work was done quickly and they did a great job! After they power washed the floor they helped organize our things back into the garage. They even took the items that we were throwing in the garbage with them! Great job! They were very professional.

    COS did great at scheduling and confirming the April 17 meeting for an initial design.   All personnel were on time throughout.  My instructions to the designer, Tom Mayfield, were to give me cabinets for $1,000 for the items I then had in a wire bookcase and plastic boxes and bins on the floor of the laundry room, and if space were left over to build in room for large bags like sports bags.  I told Tom that I could not read an architectural sketch, so that I was relying on his design.  He told me that his design, which was to use the whole wall, would offer a lot more space than I currently had in my wire bookcase, and that there would be room left over for a hanging closet.  We spent way too much time with him trying to explain to me his drawing, because I can't visualize widths, angles and directions of doors from architectural drawings.  I decided to trust him since I had explained my priorities and what I wanted and since COS had such great reviews.  I then faced a few surprises when it came time to sign.  The price was well over the budget I had provided, included 3 doors of the design we had discussed and a fourth flat panel, and included no backing (shelves were flush against the wall, which in fact worked out but I find it inappropriate to be told at the end to initial that backing would cost more when we had always discussed "cabinets").   When built on May 7, the system was very nice, solid and well made by installer John Lyons who was very pleasant and also did a great job of keeping the area clean), but Tom's design was poor.  Over one quarter of the space was wasted with a hanging closet accessible only through an 8" wide opening the user would have to reach through standing at an awkward, diagonal angle.  One quarter of the remaining space was wasted through narrow shoe shelves, wide enough for only 3 shoes at a time, to create the 8" access (my husband's muscular arm is as wide as the amount of access given to get into a 22" wide, floor-length hanging closet!).  The bottom portion of the other half also wasted space.  After an unhappy meeting with Tom and various emails and calls expressing my disappointment and explaining the problems, COS was very helpful about removing the useless design features and substituting conventional shelves in the unacceptable half.  The replacement install on June 8 finally gave me the space I had expected and is very satisfactory.  My lessons learned were (1) I had read about and hoped for a good organizer being able to design shelving to hold things in a logical way and maximize use of the space.  Either that hope was a waste of time, money and effort, or I did not get a good design.  The replacement shelves installed June 8 (the full width of the space, straight all the way across, like a bookcase) were far more efficient and generated far more useable space than Tom's fancy attempt at different widths and sizes.  (2) my m.o. has been that if a provider gets as good reviews as COS had that I may not get multiple estimates and seek designs from multiple companies.  Given that I am paying $2,000 when I told Tom I hoped to spend $1,000 (and truly expected beforehand to pay $1400), this did not serve me well, and I definitely would recommend getting another estimate besides COS. (3)  if I can't understand the plans, don't do it--simpler is better.  Be cautious trusting the "designer."  (4) if I get hit with surprises in price when it is time to sign, next time, I hope I will walk away.  At the time I felt like I had invested too much time (I work) to go through the same process with someone else, but the last minute surprises in price were obnoxious and probably a warning sign that the design hadn't been well thought out.    With the replacements, the system is very nice and well-made, give me the space I had wanted, and should add value to the house, but I would definitely get multiple estimates and go with a straightforward design next time.

    Organizing Options of Illinois
    I had my first meeting with Mara in November of 2014 and we toured the house together. We were not able to proceed for awhile as there were some issues that needed to be addressed first and Mara and I met again in January of 2015. Once Mara actually started on the project, it took a total of 2 weeks for everything to be completed. Mara sold everything from the furniture to books and vinyl records and whatever did not sell was donated to a charity. Whatever was left was disposed of and the house was left clean and in ready-to-move-in condition by Mara and her crew. The sales were limited, for the most part, to dealers with whom Mara has dealt with previously so there never was a crowd of people trampling through the house. Mara is very caring and compassionate but is also very focused and efficient. I would highly recommend Organizing Options to anyone who finds themselves in a situation in which they have to dispose of a property that needs to be emptied of its contents first. I cannot say enough good things about Mara and our experience with her. This has been a very stressful time for us and having someone like Mara handle this situation in the way that she did was very helpful and very comforting. She is truly gifted and I hope that she will continue to provide these services for a long time.

    The service was fantastic.  A total of about six workers would come out depending on the day and it took them about five days to complete the job.  I would say they did an outstanding job, prompt, fairly priced and professional.  I have recommend them to friends.

    White Rabbit Home Improvement Inc
        White Rabbit's service was excellent.  They did everything and more then they promised.  Very professional, always on time and even worked on a holiday.  We ordered special gray cabinets which look great.  Sally also took care of a POD for storage and their team helped me with some equipment that I couldn't move myself.  The hardware on the cabinets is heavy duty and is something that I would have selected on my own.  I had looked at other companies but their flooring was such that it did not cover the entire floor including the area just beyond where the garage door closes.  With White Rabbit my garage looks complete from one end to the other. My garage is so terrific that I could add a couch and TV.  I would recommend them to anyone who wants a beautiful job with top of the line service.  What a pleasure to have a company provide what they promise.

    I am a very organized person who owns a labeler & knows how to use it. I have had some overwhelming life circumstances occur and found myself buried in papers and very important documents in addition to having moved. Linda was suggested to me by a friend who was in shock and awe I would need help labeling, but I am so glad I called her. She is on time, kind, patient and takes her job very seriously. She knows that your time is money and wants it to be of value to you and wants you to feel a sense of accomplishment. I enjoy her company and although the service in general is pricey (most organizers range from approx $50-$100) for what you think you can do yourself, if you could have you would have. She is very motivational, it forces me to do what I procratinated for so long and when she leaves it clears the way for me to do more & handle things that need to be addressed that were otherwise lost in the shuffle.

    I highly recommend this company. They provided a free, detailed plan to reorganize my garage, workroom and utility room. They have a great eye for organizational design. They provided complete pricing for the whole job with no hidden or added costs. The service and workmanship was excellent.

    Custom Cleaning Concepts
    They cleaned out the garage and they put everything back to my specifications. Everything that was taken down was put back.    I was out there with them and I believed this helped with the organazation.  They did a good job.
