Sparkling Spruce Ups
About this pro
I was Lost in a sea of boxes when I moved and feeling so overwhelmed I didn't know what to do. I called Jen from Sparkling Spruce Ups and she was a God send! I've never been very good at organizing things and having to take a home's worth of stuff and figure out where each thing should go seemed like an impossible feat. I thought I would be doomed to live in my new space like I have in the past, with piles of stuff everywhere and constantly searching for things I need. When I called on Sparkling Spruce Ups for help, Jen was more than up for the task. She helped me to organize my house in a way tailored for me so that I could easily keep it up. Thanks Jen for making my house a home, I will be recommending you to everyone I know!Nov 18, 2015
Jen is thoughtful, a great listener and a very organized person who keeps track of all aspects of her life and does it with ease!Nov 17, 2015

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My pricing system is as follows: I charge my hourly rate of, $40/hr, for the consultation which if I am then hired is applied to the first hour of work and each hour after that is also $40/hr. I also charge a $20/hr shopping assistance fee, with or without the client's presence. ** This is special pricing strickly for Thumbtack customers!
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?When working with a new customer I first conduct a short phone interview, to get an idea of the customer's needs and set-up an hour consultation. I then come out to the clients home for the scheduled consultation. At this point I view the room(s), get some ideas and go over those with the client and make an estimate of the time it will take to complete the task(s) at hand. If the client chooses to continue, we schedule our first work session. The process once hired is as follows: 1) Sort 2) Purge 3) De-Clutter 4) Shop 5) Put the room together
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a lot of "on the job" training as I have been organizing for myself, friends and family for years. When I decided to turn my passion into a profession I took a very in-depth training course in professional organizing.
