Introduction: Hi! I’m Mimi Collins and I’ve had 20+ years of experience staging, organizing, and basically reimagining spaces. Our military family moved frequently -more than 10 times - each time requiring new eyes to find a different location or function for pieces of furniture that would not serve the same purpose in the new house. Our repeated moves and short durations at each new place resulted in my passion for getting moved in as quickly and efficiently as possible to enable our new place to feel like home and get busy exploring our new area. Along the way, I helped other people with organization and staging, incorporating their needs and ideas. Some want to work with their existing furnishings and others want an entirely new look. Either way I’m happy to work with different budgets and different needs. I’m passionate about having an organized and functional space because it allows people the ability to focus on what’s important- living life!

Home Organizing

Hiring Mimi is absolutely 💯 one of the best decisions our family has made since moving into our new home! Her personality is professional, non-judgmental, and kind. Her experience shows in her work. Mimi gets a lot done in a short period of time like she is performing an organizational magic trick! She listens well, takes notes, and makes sure that her work meets the needs of her client. She transforms each space she enters. You will not regret chosing her for your home!

Home Organizing

Mimi was a wonderful! She helped me weed thru years of ‘stuff’ and keep what I really need and use. Her calm, quiet manner and great ideas are just what I needed! She is a consummate professional! After moving 4 times in 5 years I have a lot to organize and/or get rid of. If she can help me, she can help anyone get organized!

Home Staging

Mimi’s Home Staging helped me clear my mess of a closet, and create a beautiful eye-appealing space. I am in the process of selling my home, and needed an expert to help. Mimi created a beautiful space and allowed potential buyers to see the actual size of the closet. She’s terrific!

Home Organizing

Mimi was excellent to work with organizing and setting up my garage. The outcome is a functional working space: for everything there is a place and for every place there is a thing. The entire area has been streamlined and organized. Mimi, was very organized and strategic with tackling the disorganized chaos! I would absolutely recommend her services.

Home Staging

When things seemed overwhelming and I didn’t seem able to finish a project, Mimi came to the rescue! What would have taken me 4 days to cull through and organize, Mimi accomplished in hours! She has a gentle, patient manner, that isn’t condescending or judgmental, which I needed as I allowed someone to come look at all of my “stuff”. She truly wants to help get you in a better place mentally, by getting your household in a better place, physically. Mimi transformed two of my rooms, redoing placement of existing furnishings, recommending other things and just refreshing the overall look. I can’t begin to say how pleased I am and how much “lighter” my world feels! Thanks Mimi!!

Dee, You were so great to work with! You have beautiful furnishings. Sometimes things just feel overwhelming and you need a fresh pair of eyes :) Thank you for trusting me with the process. Let me know if you need help with other projects.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My pricing is flexible and can be tailored to the job. Each job is completely different and is why I offer free consultation. I can do package pricing or hourly or combined.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    We start with a phone call, then an in-home consultation, which is beneficial for both my clients and me. It gives us a chance to talk about the project before we work together, but it also allows me to evaluate your project and get a feel for everything you're trying to achieve and do in your space (both short term and long term). This way I can set you up with a system that will serve you for years to come.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    My Bachelor’s degree is in Human Services, which has helped me understand the psychology behind what we buy and why we hang on the certain things. It’s also been beneficial to creating ways to let go of things that no longer serve a purpose and that allows us to free up our time for the things that are important in this point of our lives. My family’s many moves forced me to choose the important (and frivolous!) things that came with us. Each different home’s configuration made me find new uses for the same piece of furniture...what would work in one house inevitably did not work in the next! So, I became skilled at reinventing and reimagining new uses for old pieces! I will take these skills and pass them on to you to help you achieve a space that works for where you are in life.
