Bay Area Professional Organizer Co.
Q. What is a Professional Organizer, and what can they help me with?
A. Professional Organizing is an industry that helps individuals and businesses de-clutter, take control of their surroundings, and create systems to optimize functionality, space, resources, time, energy and reduce stress.
Professional Organizers motivate, coach and teach clients to become self-organized and provide the physical labor of organizing a space.
Professional Organizers are separate from handymen, interior designers, professional movers, installers, etc.
Q. Do I need to arrange childcare?
A. Your attention and focus is needed during sessions. Clients must be present during the entire session. Only have at your sessions who will help, not hinder.
Q. How do you work with your clients?
To begin, we'll do the free phone consult, book and pay over the phone.
The first 15 minutes of Session 1, you'll give me the "grand tour" of the home/property. Then we'll sign the client contract together so we're literally on the same page. The FAQ and Pricing pages on my website cover all details that are on the client contract. After we've completed the grand tour and client contract, we turn on all the lights, play your favorite music, and dive in! Dress for a work out--because it is one!
We immediately sort ALL like items into the room that they belong. IE: all books together by the bookshelf, all papers together in the office, all shoes and clothes in master bedroom, gardening supplies in the garage. Once we have sorted ALL items into piles, we'll then purge one pile at a time. I am your coach throughout the purging process, helping you make thoughtful decisions on what to keep/not keep. I coach each client differently, based on each client's individual personality/needs/lifestyle.
At the end of each session, we'll load my car of donations and recycling. I'll give you the tax write-off receipts for your donations.
Once the entire property is sorted and purged, it can be organized. Furniture and decor are arranged.
Along the way, you'll cry, you'll cuss, you'll ask outloud, "What the hell is this?" It's a roller coaster ride of emotions. It's also a commitment of time, money and energy to do this process. Kiera is there to support you and cheer you on.
