Claudette P.

Home Organizing

When I decided to hire a professional organizer I was worried about spending money for something I could do myself. I needed the job done in a speedy fashion so I hired AugustPOPS . I chose Jo-Ann because somehow her personality and professionalism spoke to me through her profile. Of course when I met her my expectations were spot on. She help me cleared and organized my home office into a home spa. I can't be more grateful for choosing her for this job. She is very experienced; helpful; works quickly; and her personality and presence is ideal for being in your personal space, perusing through your personal stuff. This experience was so worth it that I'm hiring her again to organize my garage. Thank you Jo-Ann!

Amazing!!!!! Had a basement just packed to the gills with stuff (work and home stuff) 6 and 1/2 hours later and 1/3 of the basement is organized, threw out a ton of stuff. Will definitely hire her when ready to tackle the rest! Having surgery tomorrow so have to wait.

Jennifer, you do such important work and it was a pleasure helping you sort through all the important teaching aids to help you get ready for the next school year (in a few months).

Home Organizing

This is the kind of therapy I've needed for many years. Jo-Ann helped me not just to get my apartment organized in time for an inspection (which of course, I had put off till the last minute), but helped me to think about my space in ways I hadn't before and to re-think my ideas of "perfection." She was so flexible and open-minded and respected my boundaries. When I told her I didn't think the way she had arranged a closet would work for me, she helped me re-arrange it in a way I'm very happy with. I finally feel like I can start living my life in my apartment. In addition, Jo-Ann was a lot of fun to talk to, down-to-earth, and helped me feel at ease. She admitted that she herself isn't always the most organized, which makes her more empathetic to people like me. I've read several books on how to organize, and while they've had helpful ideas, I've never been able to push myself to fully implement and stick with them. I'm glad I was able to admit to myself that I needed a professional to physically come in and help me get things together, and that I picked Jo-Ann to be that professional.

JoAnn was amazing! She arrived on time and ready to get to work. Together we cleared out and organized 2 rooms. I now feel at peace when I go into those rooms, instead of stressed and overwhelmed. She was respectful of my space and I didn't feel judged about my clutter, LOL. She gave me tips and advice that I can use to keep these spaces organized as well as the other spaces in my home. She is real, down to earth and with just that one meeting, has been a blessing to my home. I will definitely hire her again.

Home Organizing

Jo-Ann was great from the start with helping me organize my closet. I told her my budget and she made sure to not go over. I had a new born and was in need of some organization in my closet immediately. As she was working she gave great suggestions on how to improve my organization for the long run. Jo-Ann clearly does it all because she was trying to even watch my baby as well. She is definitely a woman of many skills so please ask her what else she do because there is more. Great communicator as well. Thanks again Jo-Ann my closet still looks great!

Ki, thank you so much for inviting me into your home and having us work together on your closet. It was a small space with big needs but we did it!! The baby was wonderful the whole time too!

    Phone conversation first. when planning for the call, I will usually ask the customer to come prepared with thoughts about the following: What is your ultimate goal?
