Hi readers! Lately I’m receiving oodles of emails [like this one below] and thought I’d share my response via blog post.
Do you or your team of organizers still offer professional organizing services in the Raleigh area or are you only working on TV with Hoarders?
A few weeks ago Lifetime TV started airing episodes of Hoarders and suddenly a lot of folks started emailing and calling the office asking if Metropolitan Organizing provides professional organizing services on TV (only) or if we are still available, “in real life.”
These inquiries are typically from people who need help organizing their home offices, closets, garages, filing systems, wardrobes, digital data and countless other areas of their homes and home-based businesses.
Some of these calls I return myself which means I’ve had the pleasure of enjoying lots of lively conversations and some of the calls my team members have returned.
In the event that YOU are wondering if I am only doing TV-organizing or if Metropolitan Organizing still does hands-on organizing, here’s the short answer: YES! We are doing hands-on work in North Carolina. I have a team of organizers and depending on what your specific organizing challenges are, I’ll determine who is a good fit for your particular project and an organizing session is booked depending on your schedule, budget and preferences. If someone from team is unable to help you I’ll cheerfully give you names of other local professional organizers who might be a better fit for the job. If you live in NC, I encourage you to visit www.naponc.org and explore the websites and credentials of my wonderful local colleagues.
If you’ve been browsing http://www.metropolitanorganizing.com website and have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me by phone or email. It’s a tough balancing act figuring out what to include or exclude on a website especially when a variety of services and specialties are being offered. This fall I hope to update my website but meanwhile, due to travel, speaking engagements, teaching and advising professional organizers from around the world I’m doing mostly virtual work with new organizers while the Metropolitan Organizing team members are busy working in homes all over the Raleigh-Durham area including: Cary, Holly Springs, Apex, Garner, Chapel Hill, Durham, Fayetteville, Wake Forest and beyond.
Wondering what it’s like to work with a Metropolitan Organizing professional organizer? Well, the first session typically includes a 45 minute walk-thru assessment of your home or office and about 3 hours of roll-up-your-sleeves, dig-in-organizing. This can be done in-person or with a computer that has a camera. Be prepared to show us your environment and please don’t clean up before we meet. It’s important that we see your stuff exactly where you leave it. We may take room measurements, snap photos and ask a lot of questions. We do this to help figure out what the best solutions for your particular organizing challenges are going to be. Clients continually tell us they love how efficient we are and appreciate how quickly we get jobs done for them or with them (depending on their health and availability)
Hopefully, this post helps clarify what’s going on behind the scenes at Metropolitan Organizing. Need help getting organized? Give us a call!
