DO YOU OFFER A FREE CONSULTATION?
A Peaceful Home offers a complimentary 20-minute Phone Consultation to help you determine if our services meet your needs -- so you can ask questions and get answers. We can schedule an In-Home Assessment to meet with you in your space. The In-Home Assessment is designed a useful tool to clarify and prioritize the organizing project, provide you with expert solutions to common organizing problems, provide a time estimate for each space, and motivate you to begin the organizing process.
PAYMENT & PRICING
A Peaceful Home accepts cash, check and major credit cards and full payment is due at the end of each In-Home Assessment or Organizing Session. Pre-paid packages are due at the first Organizing Session and are non-refundable. Coaching Sessions are billed monthly. Hourly rates and bulk/package pricing can be found on our Work With Us page. See Client Agreement for full details.
Cancellations must be made by phone 48 hours before the scheduled appointment so we have time to fill the canceled session. A reminder is sent via text or email several days prior to the appointment as a courtesy to our clients.
At the time of booking an In-Home Assessment or Organizing Session, we require a credit card to hold your appointment, however, your card will not be charged at that time. Cancellations of less than 48 hours of the scheduled appointment will be charged a cancellation fee of $75.
WHAT DOES A PROFESSIONAL ORGANIZER DO?
“A Professional Organizer supports evaluation, decision-making, and action around objects, space, and data; helping clients achieve desired outcomes regarding function, order, and clarity.” –National Association of Productivity & Organizing Professionals (NAPO)
Peaceful Home Professional Organizers give structure and create clarity out of clutter helping you cull, sort, and edit your belongings. Then we help you develop better organizing skills and habits so you can stay organized in the long term by containing, labeling, organizing, and creating systems according to your natural preferences. We transform your space into a well-designed, functional, and aesthetically pleasing one. We’re also experts in productivity helping you gain control over your time, focusing on what’s important, and helping you manage to-do lists.
WILL YOU ORGANIZE FOR ME?
We are open to working with our clients depending on what working style best suits them. Many times we work side by side with clients so there’s a transference of skills and we give occasional homework to help reach your organizing goals. Other clients prefer the Professional Organizer to do the work from start to finish and the client has little to no input on the project. We also offer DIY services for clients who just need a little direction or are budget conscious.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET ORGANIZED?
Organization is an on-going process. Working with a Professional Organizer helps you get back to an organized state and learn better skills and techniques. How long that process takes depends on many factors: the amount of clutter, the size of the project, how quickly you make decisions, your commitment to the project, and having the right materials and supplies. Having a Professional Organizer on your team helps the process go faster and helps you have greater success. Many projects are completed in a day or two. After that, there are maintenance strategies and ongoing support, like maintenance services and coaching, so you can stay organized. This is welcome news to our clients who have battled clutter and disorganization for years.
CAN YOU HELP ME PREPARE MY HOME FOR SALE?
As a Home Staging Expert® as well as Professional Organizer, our approach is to efficiently makeover your space, remove clutter, and stage to appeal to a broad range of buyers. We keep your budget in check and focus changes on key areas for a return on your investment. A typical price reduction occurs after a home is listed for a month. This can be a reduction of thousands of dollars. The homes we stage typically receive an offer within days of being listed.
CHOOSING A PROFESSIONAL ORGANIZER
Choosing a Professional Organizer is a very personal choice. Finding an organizer that fits well with your personality and has the skills to help you succeed is key.
