Hiring Sarah from Room Service Home Organizing and Re-Design was the best decision our family has made to organize our home. Sarah is professional and took time to listen to our needs and made the whole experience really fun. I would definitely recommend Room Service Home Organizing and Re-Design to anyone looking help organizing their home but doesn't have the time to get to it on your own.Jan 31, 2019
I'm a Pasadena and La Canada area real estate agent, and I brought Room Service Home Organizing in to help with de-cluttering and home staging for one of my listings. Sarah did a wonderful job! Using the furnishings already in the home, she re-worked them in a way that made the home feel much more spacious and appealing to all types of potential buyers. She is very professional and easy to work with, and both my clients and I were very happy with the results. I've recommended her to several colleagues and clients already.Oct 8, 2018
My husband and I started a new home business a couple of months ago and we hired Sarah to organize our home office. We were so happy with her work I hired her to organize our laundry/mud room. This space had become a dumping ground for miscellaneous items we didn't know what to do with. Sarah worked with us to help sort through our belongings into keep, donate, recycle, and trash piles. Everything now has a proper place. Sarah organized all our miscellaneous stuff into well organized labeled bins. In the past, if I couldn't find what I was looking for I would just buy a new one. I was surprised to find out I had 8 flashlights as well as several other multiple items. Now I can quickly find the items I need and I don't have to waste time and money buying duplicates. I highly recommend Room Service Professional home organizing. Next project, my husband's shop.Jun 8, 2017
Ok, talk about a God sent! A couple weeks ago my wife suggested to me that it was time for me to spend some time down in the basement, to get things in order after several years of neglect. After a couple of remodels, and a new baby things started piling up, and my work space was taken over by everything that didn't have a place. My wife said that one of her friends had Room Service take care organizing and categorizing their home office, and they were super happy with the outcome. Sarah came over for the consultation and she was so easy to talk to, and there was no judgement what so ever. Sarah was able to sort things out for me, things like the surfboard that I'd been meaning to sell for years, she had me put a "sell by date" on it, and even helped me take the pile of donations to the Goodwill! Her rates are super reasonable, so my wife and I planning to hire her again to help with other areas of our house. I'm so happy to have my space back, and looking forward to getting into my projects again. *****Jun 9, 2017
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My rate is $55 per hour, and I offer reduced pricing for packages of hours.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I like to start off with a 10 minute phone conversation where the prospective client and I get to know each other and discuss the project at hand. We talk about which areas of the home or office need help and what obstacles the client feels are preventing them from getting organized. For there, we can either set up our first session, or schedule a complimentary walk-through, which gives me a better idea of the scope of the project. My organizing sessions typically involve working side by side with the client, although I'm able to work independently while my client is at work, as well. Throughout the process, I teach my clients how to break down the organizing process into manageable steps. I work with my clients to create an organizing system tailored to their specific habits and needs, so that it is easy to maintain after I leave. We often start by editing down and curating items: First, like items are sorted. This helps to see how many of each item the client owns, which often makes it easier for the client to part with things. We go through the items together, one by one, and ask a series of questions to help my clients determine which items should stay and which should go. Items that stay are then organized in a purposeful way in the space, and this location becomes the item’s “home”. Depending on the amount of items to be sorted, it can take more than one session of editing and curating before all items have been addressed, and are ready to be organized and containerized. If there are items the client is unsure about, we create a “maybe” section to revisit toward the end of the session. Toward the end of the session, we can take a few minutes to review our progress and discuss any concerns. We discuss how the de-cluttering and organizing process may seem overwhelming at times, but each item we pick up, decide on, and put in its proper home gets you one step closer to their end goal. If the client wants to keep working independently before the next session, I can write out specific “homework” tasks to be completed before our next session.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I organized for friends and co-workers for years before going out on my own. I spent seven years in costuming and set decorating in the film industry, and a lot of my job involved sorting, organizing, labeling, and inventorying items. I became known as the girl to hire if you needed some major organizing rehab in your department! I assisted an organizer for some time and, after the birth of my son, I decided to go out on my own as a Professional Organizer. I've never been happier!
