I’ve hired Melissa for a number of projects over the last year, and have upcoming work scheduled as well. I can wholeheartedly recommend Melissa for any organizational, cleaning, gardening, garage work and miscellaneous projects. I particularly appreciate Melissa’s reliability, flexibility in approach to projects/your needs, her speed in completing work and her creative solutions. It's also great to have one person able to handle multiple types of work/projects. She completes high quality work quickly and thoroughly, and is friendly and easy to communicate with.

Melissa at Chic Nest is all you can ask for in caring for your home. Whether it is cleaning, running errands/shopping, greeting guests, or getting help for any problems that arise if you are away, she does it all with a smile! She is responsive and trustworthy. We feel comfortable putting our home in her hands.

Melissa has helped me on so many projects including party planning, organizing 3-car garage, decorating, and landscape design. She is always fun to work with. She comes up with ideas that never even occurred to me…she is so talented. She is tireless and more motivated than me sometimes to get my own projects done! I would highly recommend Melissa for your future projects.

Melissa was exactly what I needed to complete a year long garage organization project. We worked together well and were able to organize two garages in a little over two days. She is very detail oriented when needed and is not afraid to get down and dirty in order to get the job done~ I will use her again soon to pack up my MIL's apartment.
