How We Work With You
Exposing your documents, your closets and your lifestyle can be uncomfortable. That’s why working with a professional organizer begins with trust.
Trust ensures that we can help you reach your goals in a professional and confidential manner. As a member of the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO), we proudly abide by the NAPO code of ethics. For more about our commitment to your confidentiality, read our Privacy Statement.
Messy closets and pantries, cluttered desks and playrooms – we’ve seen it all. Our clients may have diverse organizational needs but they each share the same goal:
A neater, more organized environment where they can enjoy their friends and family without stress.
Metropolitan Organizing often suggests outside consultants who specialize in areas where extra help is needed and that complement our organizational skills. We often collaborate with independent consultants; such as accountants and bookkeepers, packing, moving, and relocating specialists, interior designers, feng shui practitioners, ADD coaches, personal assistants, virtual assistants, computer consultants, productivity coaches and psychotherapists.
