Full cleaning 2700 sq ft home - 9 hours. Best brokered or web-led housecleaning experience EVER. Michael is a smart (IQ and especially EQ) and articulate man who quickly became immersed (with a ton of energy) in our tasks with a high level of sensitivity to our particular home stage. He is a totally capable cleaner, sure - used a totally effective combo of his and our own chemicals, tools and methods - got the house lastingly clean (it's been 4 days since now, time to dispassionately inspect) in all the conventional ways, missed only a few nooks or crannies - and he sincerely wanted to know what we catch that he misses (we got the sense he'll remember for next time). BUT - what else? Most cleaners (especially on first time gigs) reveal a lot by how they handle the dusting / knick knack challenge - Michael got bookshelves and cabinets and chests and mantles and all that clean, "picking up" every little item to dust beneath, AND then surprised us by tweaking placement - staging - of MANY of the little precious things we've accumulated over the years and (not making this up) we had to agree 100% of the time that he'd put things back better than where he found them. He knew this was a scary thing to offer - told us some people ask him to refrain and he quickly restores things as they were ... but folks, this guy (he has apparently worked as a professional interior "stager") is genuinely talented - and this one housecleaning left us with improvements we really liked! So in addition to a VERY well cleaned home - we got insight and a freshening of how we live with some of our favorite little stuff. Hell of a deal - his rates are solidly in the middle of the market range for good cleaners. He has a great, informal way of handling scheduling and was totally candid upfront and easy about the business, personal space and performance aspects of a house-cleaning relationship. We'll have him back in a month for sure.
I was looking for an image consultant because I am updating my website and wanted to be sure my image was updated too! Orene came highly recommended and now I know why! Orene has been a great help to me in learning about what styles work for my body and what colors. Since I have had her help I regularly receive compliments which is very nice! I especially appreciate that Orene teaches me as we go when we are shopping. That way, I feel very empowered and confident to shop on my own and take what I have learned back to my closet! I have worked with her twice once for my winter update and recently for spring/summer. I also appreciate that she is very thoughtful and sensitive to my budget and frugal nature!
Eric helped me update my wardrobe after I lost a lot of weight. He has extensive knowledge not only about fashion, but about the processes, techniques, and historical nuances the industry is built on. He also knows San Francisco and the stores there very well, often having personal contacts at every store we visited. Additionally, he was able to help me learn both how clothes should fit, as well as how to create endless combinations: something which I was never taught and have always had trouble with. I highly recommend Eric for any and all stylist consulting.
Alesia possesses an innate ability to draw out your personal style--even if you don't believe you have one, she will hone in and uncover it--and she's a treasure trove of creative ideas and inspiration. She is an absolute pleasure to work with!
I highly recommend Jelise! She listens to what her clients want, is a perfectionist at her art, and has a keen eye of what looks fabulous on a woman. I have been pleased with everything she's done for me every time! For every look you want from simple everyday wear to evening glamorous, you want to book an appointment with Jelise.
Emilie has been a fantastic on-line personal shopper for me! What I love about her is that she fully researches what I need and then gives me several awesome options at the best prices. She will also tell me to wait on an item and then will alert me when it is on sale at a later date. She definately makes me a smarter shopper- without her help, I would surely pay way more for something that was probably second best. Several of the items she's found for me I now can't live without, and I know they will be classics for a long time. Thank you Emilie!
Michelle is a dream to be around she puts her clients completely at ease with her warm, friendly and open heartedness . Her own personal style, and knowledge of clothing and styling of her clients only comes with years of experience. She comes highly recommended.
Betina is so much fun to work with! She is creative and efficient. I have used her as my stylist for closet edits and personal shopping experiences. She helps me feel more confident in wearing my own clothes and helps me think a little more outside the box when shopping. I highly recommend Best Foot Forward!
Shelley is a terrific fashion consultant and stylist for men. She accompanied me clothes shopping one weekend. She has a terrific eye for fashion and an easy manner. She made the entire process fun and successful. Like most men, I loathe clothes shopping. Nevertheless, I finished our adventure with some great items and felt good about the whole experience. I will definitely hire her again.
Wow, Carrie Hiller was such a gift to me (from me)! I was very reluctant to take the plunge and do this for myself - thinking it was sort of a luxury. HA! Was I ever wrong. After going through this with Carrie in particular, I realize that this was a total necessity and I really would have saved myself a ton of money had I done this a long time ago. It's an investment in yourself, especially if you're like me and going through life transition (and new sizes)... Carrie was so professional (and kind to me) she met with me first. She was so down to earth and I loved that it was just like meeting with a friend. She asked the right questions and really listened to my needs were. Then, she came right in to my closet and purged - but, surprisingly, she retained a lot of what I already had and told me how we could now use it - what we needed to purchase to add to it (the minimums). She was teaching me my new style as we were going through this process - it wasn't at all like I imagined, just tossing out my old clothes. I loved learning how to "recycle" my old faves for the revised version of me :-). Then, I met her for my shopping spree - which, normally, I hate doing. But, wow - she made it so fun! I was amazed at how she was able to see things that would look good on me, but that would also be in my taste, even when I couldn't see it... AND she chose all things on sale - a bargain shopper after my own heart!! Then, she put together amazing outfits in my virtual closet online so I can access anytime - so cool that I now can go out and not feel uncomfortable. What a gem this girl is. Love this company and this girl. Will definitly be using them and Carrie again.
This is the first time for me to hire a personal shopper. I was great full to have Nicole. My experience with Nicole was awesome! She was very professional and has a great sense of style, not to mention her wondeful personality. She made me feel very comfortable as I was a bit nervous. I highly recommend her to everyone who may need help. I now start a new job feeling comfortable and confident. Thanks Nicole!
The stress I was feeling about moving out of my Hollywood home was overwhelming. I needed someone that was going to hold my hand through the process. After shopping around for the best deal, this was it for me. Having people come into my home is very personal and I also needed confidentiality. Kay and her team were very friendly and accommodating to my needs. Everything ran smoothly and they earned my trust. All my personal belongings were in good hands and it was not stressful at all. When I moved into my new home, they were there to help me unpack and decorate. It was fun working with the same team throughout the entire process. My new home is great thanks to Kay!
Jessica is wonderful! I can not recommend her enough. Flexible and thoughtful, not only did she make a very stressful shopping project a positive experience, but her styling recommendations were great! I am happy to say that I have now used her services several times and am looking forward to working with her in the future.
I am an advocate and Pro for Thumbtack and hired Kayla for my boyfriend to prepare his apartment before his family came to town. The tasks were vague to start, but she acted as our personal assistant for 3 days since we have extremely busy schedules. She organized his place, put items in storage, set up the guest bedroom, grocery shopped, and minitored the cleaner. She was able to check in 2 different flights for our visitors and manage their airport Uber pick ups remotely, as well as managing some personal emails. She was able to provide an array of dinner reservation options and book them. The special touches were noticed, such as; putting stemmed glasses for the white wine in the freezer, checking in on our hired cleaner, organizing closet space in the guest bedroom and setting up their Netflix. Kayla was trustworthy, asked the right questions, and was very efficient! It is definitely worth hiring a pro to take the stress off your plate when having visitors, will hire her again in a month before more company.
Really great shopping experience! It was really fun to have a curated experience - I learned about so many stores I never knew about previously. The champagne during the tour was a nice touch!
The service was stellar and amazing. Cat is very personal, friendly and goes above and beyond when meeting my needs. I'm very impressed 😊

I am a mother of four, a 7-year-old boy, 4 1/2-year-old girl, and 2-year-old twin boys. I have done years of research on how to set up a nursery with the most valuable baby items. I can offer advice on what to choose or pick out items myself. My services have been used by future parents who are overwhelmed by the volume of merchandise and need help making choices, as well as by people seeking the perfect baby gift who want to put together a collection of useful items. My personal shopping services are available in three forms: * In the San Francisco Bay Area, I will shop with you at the baby store(s) of your choice and will advise you on the items that you will need for your new baby. * I will shop with you to choose a gift for someone expecting a baby or in need of a gift for a child/children. * After a phone consultation, I will shop for you for either of the above-mentioned services and can have the items shipped to your house. I am available in the afternoons, evenings, or on the weekends. I am also available to consult with women on bed rest who are unable to get to the store before the babys arrival.
