I am a Professional Organizer, a trained Interior Designer (specializing in REdesign which uses your current furniture and accessories), a Home Stager, Space Planner, Tiny Home Designer and a Color and Accessory Consultant. I can organize any space in a house or office: residential as well as commercial.
Q: Do you have local references?
A: I have dozens of local clients, as well as clients around New Mexico, and many repeat clients. Please visit my testimonial page called 'PRAISE'. If you would like to check my references, I could put you in touch with several of my clients.
Q: Do you belong to any professional organizations?
A: I am a member of the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO) and RESA (Real Estate Staging Association)
Q: How long have you been in business?
A: In the Albuquerque area, I have been in business five years. I have been doing design and organizing in other states for more than 20 years.
Q: What hours do you work?
A: I am available Monday through Thursday from 8:00 am to 6pm. On Friday I work from 8:00 am till sunset. I do not work on Saturdays. I can arrange special hours on Sundays if your job requires some weekend work.
Q: Do you bring the necessary supplies or do I purchase them separately?
A: There is no one organizing or design item that can meet all needs. Hence, if a specific item is needed, it would be purchased by you separately so that it meets the requirements of your particular job. If you want, I can shop for necessary items for you.
Q: Do you charge an hourly shopping fee?
A: Yes, when I shop for any of my clients (with or without them), I charge my regular hourly fee but do not charge for my gas.
Q: Do you attend conferences or tele-classes and stay abreast of current trends and techniques?
A: Yes, and I search out new products and trends online as well.
Q: Do you make arrangements to take away any donations, consignments and trash?
A: I recommend that you arrange with one or two of your favorite charities to pick up your donation items with one of their trucks.
Q: Do you work alone or do you have a team of employees or subcontractors, if necessary?
A: On most jobs I work alone. However, I have a team of subcontractors that I can recommend such as painting services, cabinet, tile or carpet replacement as well as handyman services such as double-rodding or adding extra shelves to closets.
Q: Do you take photographs on my property or at my business?
A: If you have privacy concerns, I do not need to take any photographs. When I do however, I never use any names or addresses.
Q: Do you have advertising on your car?
A: I do not have any advertising on my vehicle: you need have no concern that your neighbors or co-workers will know that you are working with me.
Q: What is your fee and how do you charge?
A: I charge an hourly fee. I only work as long as the client needs and wants. I do not usually do 'package' pricing as I do not feel it is in my client's best financial interests. If however, a client can demonstrate that they have a job that requires extensive work, I can negotiate a discounted fee. Please call me to discuss my hourly rate and what it encompasses.
Q: DO YOU SERVE CLIENTS THROUGHOUT NEW MEXICO, ARIZONA AND BORDERING STATES?
A: I travel to wherever a client needs my services. I need to charge a traveling/gas charge and overnight, lodging and food fee, but otherwise, I only charge my hourly rate to help client's with any of my listed services.
