Hmmmm, where do I begin? RASCHER of TAMESPACE (pronounced like TV's "Frasier", but with an 'R'), is and was a complete and total godsend.
Long story short, I was only moving within my BUILDING in the tiny, prewar studio apts of the West Village, but nonetheless, I learned VERY quickly... a move is a move is a move is a move. And although six years ago, I had downsized my stuff MAJORLY (or so I thought), to move into my tiny one-room studio (sans bathroom sink, bathtub or kitchen—of any sorts) from a Murray Hill studio about 4.5x the size; I quickly learned, I had not. At ALL.
From the moment we first spoke on the phone to the minute she entered my DISASTER of an apt... I knew she was the PERFECT lady for me. Strict and serious when it came to getting rid of everything not needed, ABSOLUTELY not necessary or not "sparking JOY" in my life [thanks Marie Kondo].... to also naturally being amazingly cultured, super intelligent, adorable, utterly hilarious and UBELIEVEABLY motivational.
She is NOT the kind of organizer who will come into your home/closet/kitchen—what have you and do it for you—you work together as a fast-moving Navy SEAL Team 6 to 'GET IT DONE'.
And really? Why would you want anyone touching your things anyway and deciding what stays and what goes and where it goes without you getting down and dirty too?
I initially had only booked, dear RASCHER, for ONE eight-hour session... thinking (HA!) that we could get it all done by then. UM, I don't even know how many times she came back to my rescue AND at such short-notice! Let's just say she came back enough to get to know my BF, my Super, my Bldg Manager, etc. by a first-name basis.
She also took copious notes and emailed them to me at the end of the night with a concise and perfect homework checklist to work on when she was not there. Many times, I didn't get to it out of pure exhaustion and stress, but I recommend to anyone else, do the homework! The more homework you do, the better off you are next time she arrives.
And just on a personal note, even though we are quite close in age, she was (in a perfect-way) like the Mom I never had and desperately always wanted and/or needed. She was SO kind to go as far as to send random encouraging texts, here and there, to make me feel I was going to make it through the move and I would survive the clutter-moving and quite $$$ NIGHTMARE.
She truly is **one of a kind** and I cannot RECOMMEND her highly ENOUGH!!
Her spot-on services (with a personalized touch), her extensive knowledge of all things neat, wise and organized and her supernatural ability of being able to turn a tornado into a field of calm and peaceful sunflowers 🌻 is most-certainly unmatched.
I could go on and on, but my own unpacking is calling my name so if you ever want further WHYs and WHYs of why you should hire this amazing human being, aside from being the VERY BEST at what she does, feel free to contact me anytime! 10 STARS - 2 THUMBS-UP - A+
