Elise helped me organize and clear out my home from clutter prior to selling my house. She also helped me stage the house for pictures as well. She helped show buyers the potential our home has to offer. We received multiple offers and got over asking! She works fast, was efficient and reliable. I couldn't have had a better experience. I am going to be using her again to help me with the remainder of my packing prior to moving in a couple of months.Apr 6, 2016Verified
Elise did a wonderful job organized our office! With a small office space for 4, sometimes 5 working adults, we needed help with prioritizing our needed items and deciding what we would eliminate. Elise created a space that allows us to feel more comfortable and access our things easily. We were able to eliminate the clutter and free up space to make a tiny office feel big! She was personable, kind, and willing to go the extra mile.Nov 17, 2015
