Residential A to Z Organizing
The manager of an active family and household called us when she realized searching for her kids’ homework, missing keys and her blackberry took over the morning routine each day. After an initial walk-thru of the home with the client to assess the family’s needs, we formed a plan of action that would not just serve as an “easy fix,” but would provide a positive lifestyle change for the entire family. First we sorted and edited belongings, donating many and setting some aside for repurposing. Next, we began the process of room to room organization. We put numerous systems in place including paper management in the home office to a grab-and-go area for the kids in the mud room. Finally, we outlined guidelines for the client to follow so she would not be overwhelmed maintaining her home. Over a year later, the family is still excited about the transformation.
Room Transformations From Home Office to a Child’s Room
For these clients, an addition to their family also meant a transformation of their space. After editing and organizing the office contents and finding a new home for them, we orchestrated all phases of the project including: space planning, designing and installing closets, and shopping for furniture storage containers. We also recommended and supervised other service professionals: cleaners, painters, handyman, and lighting designer. The result was a warm and friendly child’s room.
Our client, the owner of a film company, started her business in a home office. Over the past 10 years it has expanded to a space which now includes a production area, 3 separate offices, and a storage room. As her business has evolved, we have been there for each step to assist in organizational management. We partnered with the client to create workflow and filing systems that support the ever-growing needs and goals of her company. Also, ongoing additions to her staff allowed us to put our space planning skills to use. An important element to the process is our quarterly sessions to evaluate and modify the systems in accordance with the current needs of the company.
For this global family, a move to a larger apartment was filled with unique challenges–one being they would be out of the country for the move! Our role began long before moving day. Initially we met with the client to assess their needs and create a timeline and plan of action. From there, we interviewed and hired movers, edited belongings, and arranged for their distribution to various locations including family in France. We were involved for each and every step: supervising the pack/load/delivery, unpacking, organizing, and setting up their 4-story home which included a professional-size kitchen, home office, garage and art studio. Throughout, the Project Manager acted as liaison between the client and numerous vendors.
Estate Cleaning/Home Sale Preparation
A busy attorney and only child hired us shortly after losing his last surviving parent to assist him with clearing out his family home and preparing it for sale. We removed two (2) tons of unwanted items, arranged for the donation and/or sale of items, and coordinated the move of the remaining items to storage. In addition, we recommended contractors to give the house a facelift prior to staging it for sale. The home sold for above the asking price.
