Kind Words From My Clients

Kind Words From My Clients

For several months now, I have been meaning to write a review for Organize With Alice and the remarkable work Alice did for my home and my life. Who would know that the pandemic would happen and I would be spending all my time at home? I thank God I am in an environment that is now organized and peaceful. As difficult a time as this is, I can’t even imagine what it would be like if I was still living amidst chaos and clutter. For over a decade I lived in a state of disorganization and utter confusion. When I first saw the ad for Organize With Alice, I waited over a month to pick up the phone and call because I was embarrassed and quite frankly nervous. The minute I connected with Alice, my fears were gone and I knew I had made the right decision. I know now more than ever it was meant to be that I hired Alice at the time I did.

Alice is patient, skillful, knowledgeable, and always showed up with a smile. She is a true professional, while also being friendly and very sincere. She “pushed me” just enough to get me going, but was never judgmental or critical. I found myself looking forward to our sessions and being excited as we completed one area, then another. She is a genuine pleasure to work with.

It has been many months since our work together was completed, and my home is organized and under control. Even on days when it is “messy,” it is never more than an hour or so until order is restored because I have so much less and everything has a home. Thank you, Alice, from the bottom of my heart.

I am eternally grateful to you for coming into my life and all that you did for me. Stay safe and healthy so you can continue to help others and transform their lives the way you did mine.

My experience working with Alice has been the best. Alice is professional and a true expert in the field of organization. She is easy to work with because of her work ethics, trustworthiness, and relational capabilities. All of these qualities are very important when you are allowing someone into your personal space. We have been able to organize and declutter my home including closets and my garage. I credit Alice for the vast improvement in my credit scores. She helped me to set up systems for opening mail and discarding unwanted mail. This has assisted in my paying attention to bills and for making timely payments. Before working with Alice, I had bags and drawers filled with unopened and unaddressed mail.I look forward to our work sessions because I know I will be all the more organized. Alice also teaches you how to maintain and how to recognize if things are getting out of control.

I had a wonderful experience working with Alice! She is warm, kind, and knowledgeable. She shared some great ideas with me which really transformed my space. You will not be sorry. I recommend her wholeheartedly!

Alice is AMAZING. She is sweet, kind, honest, patient and just a genuine person. We decluttered and organized my entire house. She gave great suggestions and did a wonderful job. Alice made me love my house again. I cannot begin to say enough. I highly recommend her and have been telling that to all my friends and family. I was on the fence about having an organizer for two reasons – the cost, and being uncomfortable with someone going through my stuff. Alice was affordable and worth every penny. She made me feel so comfortable and is not judgmental AT ALL. Hiring Alice was truly one of the best decisions I made for myself.

Alice has legitimately changed my family’s life for the better. This may seem dramatic but I am being honest. From our very first phone conversation to meeting her in person, Alice made us feel so relaxed and reassured us she was not there to judge. She told me not to “fix up” before her arrival. We would work on it together. Since day one, our house has NEVER looked better. There is a place for everything. It feels like a friend is at our house.

Organize With Alice was truly a godsend. It is as if our minds have been decluttered along with our house. (side note: pets love her too, even shy ones.)

If you are on the fence about hiring a Professional Organizer, don’t be. The only regret you will have is not hiring Alice sooner.

I hired Alice to organize 40 years of papers maintained in a storage unit, more than half of which belonged to a deceased person and the other half to his wife. Alice carefully sorted and documented her organization of the materials and helped me dispose of thousands of pages of unwanted papers, while maintaining the significant documents for safekeeping. She is efficient, professional, speedy and thorough. Can’t recommend her enough.

Alice is THE BEST!

I was just moving into a new home, unpacking, when I broke my foot. Well, that propelled me to reach out to Alice ... and she came to my rescue!

The move itself was a daunting task, taking several months — consolidating the contents from three homes into one. Alice facilitated unpacking, sorting, and organizing of all items, as well as in the purging and donating of items no longer needed.

Probably the most challenging component of the project was tackling my home office. Before: a complete nightmare! Alice remained unphased. Strategically calm, she helped me start to sort through cartons of paperwork from over the last decade, for 3 households, including my 93yo mom's affairs (massive medical paperwork, taxes and more).

Without Alice, I'd be too overwhelmed by it all. Honestly, if I could afford, I would hire her permanently, as my personal assistant, to help me stay organized! At the very least, I plan on periodic “check ins” to help stay on track. Alice has helped to define order and structure in my new home, making it the oasis I dreamed of!

On top of that, Alice is just a genuinely great person, and feels like someone I have known forever.

Kudos to Alice for working the magic she did in both my house and home office.

I’ve lived with papers on my dining room table for years. Not being able to find things caused me a lot of stress. I was ashamed of how my house looked and made excuses not to entertain. I had a wake-up call when my daughter needed to come home and live with me. As much as I welcomed it, all I could think of was where would she sleep because her room was being used for storage. I saw the ad for Organize With Alice and knew it was meant to be. From the initial phone call and consultation in my home, I knew I was in good hands. I worked with Alice for many months decluttering, organizing and getting both my house and office in shape. There were days I did not want to be doing this, but Alice always encouraged me and kept me focused. She is kind yet stern enough to get the job done.

She truly cares for her clients and has their best interest at heart. I can’t thank her enough for what she gave to me and my daughter and restored order in our lives.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Fantastic experience. We powered through probably 1,000 square feet of intense clutter in nine hours.

My house is transformed. Alice is calm, upbeat, fun to spend time with, deeply accommodating and has terrific instincts for organizing. Do not hesitate to hire her!

I cannot say enough about Alice. She was an absolute pleasure to work with. From day one, Alice was patient and calm and I never felt judged or embarrassed about how disorganized my home was. Alice helped me develop systems that work for me and taught me how to make decisions for myself about what to keep and what to get rid of. I cut down on shopping and buying items that I did not really need. Now, my closets are a pleasure to open and I know where things are. When people drop by I no longer panic because I am embarrassed about what my house looks like. I honestly feel so much better and my life seems more in control.

Professional, caring, hardworking, and really knows how to get things done! She was a pleasure to have in our home. My wife and I are both so pleased with the work Alice did with us. Definitely recommend.

Working with Alice has honestly been life changing. I can’t say enough about how fortunate I am that she came into my life. I am only too glad to sing her praises.

A few years ago I was in a bad situation. I am a single mother. I have a demanding job and two young children, and felt like I was always playing catch up. At the end of my day I was so exhausted and overwhelmed and didn’t have the time or energy to straighten up my house. I had stopped opening mail and my dining room table had piles of papers stacked up on it. I knew I was heading for trouble but did not know what to do about it. I was embarrassed to have company in my home.

My sister came over one day and saw the chaos in my home. She told me that she was going to find someone to help me and wanted to pay for it as my 40th birthday present. A friend of hers had used Alice and raved about her. She called Alice and set up an appointment for the three of us to meet later that week. I was nervous but also in a way excited.

Alice came into my home and my life and it has been one of the best things that has ever happened to me and my children. She always showed up with a smile on her face. With patience, understanding, professionalism and efficiency, she worked magic in helping bring order into my life.

We began with paperwork and setting up a home office system. Next we organized the bedrooms and created a play space for my children in the living room. We organized kitchen cabinets, our pantry, laundry room, and basement. Alice would give me “homework assignments” in between our sessions which propelled me to get more done. She was flexible in regard to our work sessions, always considerate of my work schedule and other responsibilities I had to attend to.

Alice taught me so much about how to keep my home organized. My children love our new living space and are excited to have friends over. We eat dinner as a family at our dining room table. Gone are the days of searching for a homework assignment or a library book because everything has a place.

After about five months we had basically organized my entire house. It was bittersweet when we were winding down because I knew I would miss Alice terribly!

We keep in touch and she has been back a few times for “touch-ups.”

I am so grateful to my sister for the best birthday gift ever, and to Alice for all she has done.

A million thanks!

When we were looking to hire a Professional Organizer, Alice was the one who stood out from the rest. My husband and I knew from the moment we met her that she was the one we wanted to hire. She took the time to ask questions about our routines, challenges and habits. We worked with Alice for several months and the transformation in our home was incredible. She treated the things in our home with the utmost respect. We originally hired her to organize the basement and a few closets, and ended up working with her to organize our playroom, pantry, and a lot of other areas in our home. When the weather gets nicer we will have her come back to do the garage and outdoor shed. She is truly a gift that you give yourselves.

Alice began working with me a few months before I was scheduled to move. I can honestly tell you I could not have done it without her. I was so overwhelmed by everything that had piled up over the years. I was emotional and vulnerable after my divorce and felt like I was at a standstill. I just didn't know where to begin. A friend of mine recommended Alice and she was such a godsend. Alice related to me on a personal level and knew what I was going through. She walked me through the process step by step and made me believe that I could do this. As moving day approached I felt less overwhelmed and was more organized than I ever would have believed I could be. Alice helped me unpack and organize my new residence and before long my new home was set up and I am loving life again. Take it from me, don’t go through it alone. Call Organize With Alice and let her help you. You’ll be so glad you did.

Working with Alice was a dream. She came over before our move and gave us a free consultation (something others didn’t offer to do) and put us at ease that our upcoming move would go smoothly.

She helped us clean out and pack up all of our closets, and created a sustainable, organized system for all of our things in our new apartment. She also had great ideas for how we could set up our furniture in our new space that we definitely would not have thought of without her.

Organizing and moving can take what feels like forever, but working with someone as kind and friendly as Alice made the time go by quickly.

After working with Alice, I’ve never been more organized in my life. If you are looking for a Professional Organizer for any reason, look no further. Call Organize With Alice.

After my kids were born, I lost my way in the organization of my home. One of my favorite things about our house is the large den I have for my kids to play in. Unfortunately, as they grew older the den had become so cluttered that there was no room for activities. I didn't know where to start. A friend recommended Alice to me and I called her that day. She was kind and gentle and assured me that she understood where I was coming from, having raised kids of her own. We spent a few days getting my den in order. More importantly, it has remained that way and changed our entire lifestyle! My kids now put away their toys and belongings and enjoy their play space. Our whole family enjoys our new and improved den. THANK YOU, ALICE!!

Alice has truly been a blessing. She helped me organize my closets, and worked with me to get rid of a lot of clutter. The biggest job that Alice helped me with was my basement. I truly felt that it was beyond help and that Alice would decide not to take the job. She was honest with me that it would be a lot of work and it was. We worked together and eventually we got the job done. I am no longer depressed when I go into my basement. When my husband saw what was accomplished, he was speechless. The other big job was my garage. I am no longer embarrassed to open my garage door and have my neighbors see my garage. Alice shared many tricks of the trade with me and she will do the same for you. Alice works tirelessly, she is honest and trustworthy. I would definitely recommend Organize With Alice. Not only was Alice my Professional Organizer but she also became my friend. I am a very controlling person and don't like people touching my stuff, but I had to admit to myself that I needed help. Thank you Alice!
