Questions for a Professional Organizer

We are hands-on professional organizers and work with our clients one-on-one. The process begins by determining what your goals and expectations are for your space.

Together, we go through all of your items in your space and decide what should stay and what should go. We categorize and assign the items a home, based on the most convenient place you would look for that item. The transformation that takes place during this process is amazing.

Each organizing session is custom designed to meet the needs of that particular client. Therefore, sessions do vary, but the process followed to get the end result does not. Once the process is learned it can be applied as needed. We feel that learning the process and the skills are the greatest benefit of working with a professional organizer.

As Professional Organizers, we often get asked these questions:

What do I need to do to prepare for your arrival?

There is no need to prepare for our arrival. It is best for us to see your current situation ‘as is’. We will then discuss exactly what is and isn’t working for you in your space and create a working plan to fit your needs and desires along with a timeline.

How long will my project take?

There is no direct answer until we meet with you because everyone has different situations, needs, goals and timelines.

However, the length of the project usually depends on three components:

  1. The size of the room, home or office
  2. The amount of items in that space
  3. How quickly you make decisions

Once we have met with you, seen your project and understand your needs, we can determine the project’s length.

How much will my project cost?

We charge by the hour with a 4 hour minimum per visit. Our hourly rate depends on the type of work needed. We provide a free phone consultation along with a free-in person consult prior to beginning most projects.

For more information on pricing and estimates call us at (818) 324-3660.

Do I have to be present while you are working?

This depends on the scope of work we are providing for you.

We believe you are best served by being present or at least available to answer questions during the beginning of the project. Once we understand your needs and desires, we are fully capable of working independently. We do not eliminate anything without the client’s consent.

Is your service confidential?

Yes. Before we begin any project we prepare and sign a Letter of Agreement, which contains a confidentiality clause.

As active members of NAPO we adhere to a strict Code of Ethics. But more importantly, we strongly believe that respecting your privacy before, during and after we leave is imperative.

Do you take away donations and trash?

Yes. We will either remove all items on that day or make arrangements for a pick-up.

Before I hired Lori, I would somehow manage to lose everything. Whether it was in my home or in my purse, it was always lost. Lori helped me come up with a simple organization system that worked with my needs and lifestyle. Together, we went on an adventure of separating, categorizing, and labeling. She made sense of my mess when no one thought it was possible!
