    I worked with Donna after my parents passed away and left a HUGE estate for me to liquidate. It was overwhelming and emotionally challenging for me to go through everything on my own. That's when I called Donna and I have a feeling my parent's were in Heaven looking out for me (and their things!) when I was led to her. She is an angel. I was so overwhelmed that I didn't even know where to start. Donna came in with her amazing crew and handled everything with care and sensitivity and amazing speed. I have wanted to book her for other sales to finish the liquidation (as I mentioned earlier - it was a huge estate), but she is so good that she gets booked up early, so I highly recommend calling her NOW and getting her to help you. You won't regret it. She truly is the BEST at what she does and she is a class act on top of that. I definitely will be using her in the future for many other organizing projects I have planned.

    Amazing! I just can't believe it! My mom's house was PACKED FULL of stuff and I was positive that this was an impossible task for anyone. I was wrong. Donna and her crew came through the house, cleaned, organized, priced and busted their butts to get all the stuff sold. They even changed the light bulbs in the house to give it more of a "retail store" feel. They removed doors to make traffic flow better and rehung the doors before they left. Losing a loved one is awful and having to go through their stuff is like twisting a knife in the wound - Donna came in and totally took over so that I didn't have to go through that and I am so thankful for her and her crew. They were very careful with Mom's things, worked very hard and were all very polite. I would recommend her and her crew in a HEART BEAT. Stop reading this, call her right now, get rid of that clutter! Thank you Donna!!!!!

    We needed a last minute estate sale, Donna really came through for us. Detail oriented, she was a real pro -- great pricing, promotion, hard worker. The sale went off w/o a hitch, top dollar. Thanks so much.

    Donna is a true professional. I have been using her to clear out several rooms and closets in my home and was so pleased with her work. She is not only hardworking and honest, she also understands her clients needs. I was so impressed, I even had her come to my office and she totally "made-over" the space. Donna has been a God-send to me and my family. I consider her a great person and my friend. She continues to work for me on special projects and would not hesitate to recommend her.

    Donna is such a blessing. My husband and I really needed some help and guidance with an estate sale and she was just the person! She not only walked us through the unfamiliar process but she made it the entire sale successful. She was very flexible and thoughtful when dealing with extended family members as well. I am truly appreciative of all her hard work and dedication. I would highly recommend Donna for her services!

    Donna was a godsend to me at a difficult time. A friend who had accumulated years of family items had to move on short notice to a much smaller place and it was not going to be a happy experience. Donna came in and made things smooth sailing. She really helped assess what was worth keeping and what was best for selling, and was able to help my friend with some tough decisions in a kind and loving way. Donna knows how to motivate and help all kinds of different people, and she is easy to talk to and down to earth. She put in a ton of time and energy and made sure that my friend came out of the sale with a wonderful profit and a better outlook on life. I am blessed to have found her. She's wonderful to work with!!

    Donna has really been a life saver for me and my family. I've had things that needed to be organized with the death of my folks. It escalated with my son going to college and moving out this past year. Donna is very professional, educated, honest and has a delightful personality. She is very hardworking, dependable and gives 110%. I have hired a couple of other declutter and cleaning services. They certainly didn't meet her high work ethic and standards. I certainly do recommend Donna. She's truly a dedicated professional and will stand behind each project and make sure that it's completed in a timely manner. She is also a wonderful person and friend.

    I started working with Donna about 8 weeks ago with the goal of cleaning out my attached garage so I could stop renting a second garage. We were successful in accomplishing this task. Donna was so helpful and encouraging, which made the whole process much easier. I will continue to enlist Donna's help periodically as I try to get the rest of my things organized and arranged in a fashion that makes them easier to find. I have some health issues that make physical work difficult for me and Donna's hard work and pleasant personality made it possible for me to reach my goal. I highly recommend Donna! Linda L.

    I observed Donna Lanners recently in preparation and during an estate sale. It appeared hopeless but this lady worked relentlessly to make it happen. She works hard and long hours. She is truly a professional. She is honest, trustworthy, dependable and gives 110% effort for a successful sale. I recommend her highly. You will be very pleased with this very pleasant lady and her work. Lucy Pascarelli

    I am a handicapped senior who was looking for someone to help me organize a move. I called Donna and was pleased with the services she had to offer. We set a date for her to start helping me with this great task. She did all the work; going through boxes and boxes of things helping me to decide what to throw away, give away or what to keep. She repacked all the things I kept, numbered the boxes and wrote on each box what it contained. She organized the way they should be packed and even organized how to stack the boxes for shipping. She worked in a garage when it was cold weather too. She was absolutely wonderful. Not only is she a true professional but she is a very honest person; someone you can really trust to do what is right. She had many good ideas as to how to get all the things accomplished that I wanted done. Try her services and I know you will not have only hired a true professional who knows how to get things accomplished but you will grow to trust her as a wonderful friend. I believe this happens because of her personality and also because she gives 100% while working for you.


What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
My pricing system is very straight forward. I do like to talk with my clients first and then I visit them at their location approximately for 1 hour. This is required in order to accomplish what they desire. Sometimes the need to charge a prep fee is necessary it greatly depends on the situation, I usually only charge a percentage when conducting and Estate Sale.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Yes, I keep updated on the changing prioritizing and popular collecting market. I also have extensive experience with people who have ADD and ADHD along with those suffering from depression. I work with other professionals like Lawyers and Doctors and Social Workers. I visit my completion, know that appraised value is for insurance purposes and market value is possibly what the item might sell for. You still have to find that "one" buyer who is willing to pay the asking price for that item.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
As I said before; I enjoy helping people and seeing what they want to accomplish and help to make that happen. The service that ClutterBlasters offers I see as a process which has been with me since a child. Those talents where defiantly what helped to make me successful in corporate; which was in Manufacturing/Operations, Retail, Consulting and Recruitment. It has made the tasks that ClutterBlasters needs to preform much easier to preform and accomplish. I enjoy the work and I believe that is an essential ingredient to this business because the work can be very physical and strenuous. You wear many different hats in the Estate Sale Business and you defiantly have to enjy that. Remember I started ClutterBlasters just for you!
What types of customers have you worked with?
Estate Sales, Moving Sales and Downsizing Sales. Moving Storage Units into your house for a larger Estate Sale and then liquidating it all.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
An Estate Sale that consisted of years of collecting, art, antiques collectable books and lots of high-end MISC items. With more than 1,600 people attending the sale. It included a two story home, with a triple garage along with a shed and two storage facilities. We managed to consolidate all of the physical locations and ended up having a very successful three day Estate Sale.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Ask a lot of questions. Make sure you are comfortable with the person who will perform the major tasks that you have in mind. Make a list of questions that you would like answered before you talk by phone. There are three that I recommend. 1). How long have you been in Business? 2). How many Estate Sale do you do in pone year? 3). Do you have your own Web Site? Make sure their quote includes all the fees, that there are no hidden costs. The home visit should be FREE!
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
We are able to envision the outcome. What the client wants to accomplish becomes a reality even though sometimes it may even seem impossible. We listen, take a walk through the property and execute a plan..
