How Can We Save You Time?
Organize/Downsize-Family Matters take’s the worry and work out of the daunting process and help people with that overwhelming questions of “Where do I start?” We’ll walk through the rooms that make you feel overwhelmed and develop a plan to change the space and change the habits. We take notes on what kind of collector you are and what’s taking up the most space, so we can get to work helping you streamline your home or office. We’ll separate your items into groups, as this visual process forces people to get rid of the items they don’t use or need. We help you organize in a smart, systematic way making sure that all the organizational systems we put in place are ones you could keep up on your own.
Move-We Understand moving is n overwhelming process, with so much to do and so little time. We’re here to help make it as stress free as possible. We assist in each step of the move, carefully wrapping and packing your possessions, decluttering as we go, labeling each box identifying what room and what items are inside. Whether your moving your belongings to a pod or to your new home, we make sure all you items are organized and secure. Need to prep for staging? No problem. We’ll move your items away from the walls, so the contractors can start their job.
Dump/Donate--Wondering what do to with your unwanted items? We’ll take your items away for you or schedule a pick up, whatever is the most cost-effective way.

Going through change is hard. My parents were going through a divorce and Kim came highly recommended to help us get things packed, moved and organized during our change. I will admit that when I first considered even entertaining the idea for someone to help I wasn’t on board. Why would I pay someone to do what I needed to do and had been doing for months? I met Kim and wanted to understand what she offered. I was impressed with the list of things she said she could do and was even more comfortable with her as she seemed genuine. She gave us a great quote and was so organized with her network of contacts and her way of handling logistics she ran with it. She gave us a task for the remainder of the day and we met again early the next morning. In two days we moved mountains with her Team! Realizing I did need help made me so thankful for it as it made things go faster than it would have taken me and much less stressful than it could have been.
I feel that the things Kim offers support for are hard for anyone to deal with let alone admit we need some support and help from someone. I was one of those people, but am so glad that Kim was able to help us through what we were experiencing both from a moving and job perspective and from a supportive emotional point of view.
Kim is outstanding and I would highly suggest any of her services for what you may need! Thank you, Kim and team, for all you did and continue to support us on!
