Having lived in this "too-big-now-for-just-me" house for 28 years, and being in no particular rush, I have slowly and steadily been organizing, de-cluttering and attempting to downsize. The challenge is immense, and I could not possibly be doing it without Terri's steadfast and patient assistance. In the beginning, I knocked myself out trying to get organized before Terri's visits, but I soon came to realize that she is totally non-judgmental, completely understanding, soft-spoken, gentle and kind. Terri has helped me to develop systems for clutter control and time management. She has encouraged me to part with things that no longer serve a purpose in my life, and many bags of clothing and household goods have gone to the thrift store, and boxes of books to the library for its sale. During this process, I found a generous amount of cash in a long-forgotten birthday card, and sold at auction a painting that no longer brought me joy, so I am receiving more value than the cost of Terri's service. And of course, the peace of mind I feel with less stuff and clutter is priceless!
The task that seemed overwhelmingly impossible to tackle was systematically performed: office papers reviewed and sorted into categories to keep, shred, and recycle. The office finally looks like an office. Terri was very good with suggestions and respectful of one's desires and memorabilia.
Terri was wonderful! She came in and helped my elderly father unpack and organize his personal effects after a recent move. She focused on ensuring his space was safe and useful for him. We were able to relax while Terri dove in and helped make us much more organized. I highly recommend her!
Terri Fischer was the organizer. She's very patient with me. She is very good at communicating. She is very bright and easy to work with. She adapts to my needs and has helped me to be a lot more productive. She helps with any crisis that I have going on around the house. She is very good at helping me with high priority things that need to be done now.
This was the second time I used Terri Fischer's services. Both times she was punctual, pleasant, and I enjoyed working with her. She had many good ideas and suggestions. She actively participated in moving things around the house and helped hang my art and other wall decor. I will definitely hire her again and recommend her to others.
Description of work:
Helped choose paint colors and rearrange art and other decor.
She was very responsive. We discussed my needs and found that this is not the service I need. She's very quick to respond, polite and I would definitely recommend her.
Description of work:
I purchased a big deal for 6 Hours with a Certified Professional Organizer.
Terri assisted in my down-sizing and organizing prior to my moving everything from my house. I had a deadline, and it was a huge job. She brought in another helper for 2 days and a 3rd helper for 1 day. They were always punctual, pleasant and very helpful. I will use Terri again on the unpacking end - so that everything will be in its place, organized for function as well as looking attractive.
In addition, I will probably have Terri come from time to time during the year to keep everything organized.
Description of work:
Terri was a LIFE SAVER!! They organized mountains of paper - into piles to be shredded, things to trash and things to keep and file. They put all electronic/computer things together and labeled; all bedding together, etc.
They went through closets, getting like things together, separated everything for items to be donated, things to trash and things to keep. Again everything was labeled. She brought everything from boxes to pens to tape. She called places for me to donate things, she took some things to consignment shops. She knew companies who would pick up my boxes to be shredded.
Terri is easy and pleasant to work with. She is very bright and capable. When I work with Terri, we get three times as much done as I do on my own. We started out always working together, but now there are a lot of household engineering and home management tasks I can simply delegate to her, and know that she'll carry them out well. Working with Terri gives me a huge step forward, and inspires me to continue on my own to finish projects. The psychological factor is important. I feel less overwhelmed and can see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Terri has helped me with: A death in the family, sorting, organizing, packing and shipping estate items; and planning a memorial. She was sensitive to my emotional state and patient with the organizational problems it caused me.
I don't think you can find anyone that's as hard working as her. She did a great job, very happy with the result.
She comes on time, ready to work. The end results were very pleasing!
