What is a professional organizer?
A professional organizer makes your life better. By designing systems and transferring organizing skills our main goal is to make things easier for you so you have more time to enjoy the things that matter most. We give you the systems you need to get and stay in control of your life.
Why hire a Certified Professional Organizer (CPO®)?
Certification of professional organizers maximizes the value received from the services provided and products recommended by a CPO®. Certification is granted through the Board of Certification for Professional Organizers (BCPO). CPO® Certification recognizes those professionals who have met specific minimum qualifications and proven through examination and client interaction to possess the body of knowledge and experience required for certification. POSH Founder, Heidi Solomon, earned her certification in 2008 and is a Certified Professional Organizer (CPO®).
What is your confidentiality policy?
We are aware of the high level of trust placed in organizers by their clients. We will never do or say anything to breach that trust. Integrity, honesty and confidentiality are guiding principles of NAPO that we take very seriously. Our non-judgmental approach will make you feel comfortable in the process.
How long will it take to get me organized?
Each organizing project is unique. There is no set answer. The amount of time it takes to get you where you want to be largely depends on what you want to accomplish, the level of organizing you desire and how quickly you can make decisions. Do you want to address a small area for a quick fix or do you want to attack the whole house for long-term changes? We will develop a plan based on your needs to maximize your results.
How much does it cost and how do you charge for organizing services?
We will discuss fees in our initial phone consultation. The total cost of a project varies from client to client. POSH’s fees are based on an hourly rate. The time spent on a project is determined by each client’s needs. For scheduling purposes, we ask for a three-hour minimum and maintain a 24-hour cancellation notice. Sessions canceled without 24-hour notice are charged the full rate. Fees are payable at the end of each session. Cash, checks and credit cards are accepted.
How do you work with clients?
Each project begins with a no-obligation phone conversation to asses if we are the right organizer for you, allows us to answer any questions you have and determine how we can best assist you. During the first appointment, we conduct a strategy session so we can create an action plan that fits your needs, budget and schedule. We see some clients every week while we work with others on a project basis.
How do you handle organizing projects?
Every solution we provide is tailored to you and the unique circumstances of your project. We work holistically to identify solutions that are sustainable and easy to maintain based on your personality, lifestyle and behavioral patterns. We can work independently, with you nearby or together with you. How each project unfolds is ironed out during the first appointment which is a strategy session. We are comfortable working independently so time limitations don’t prevent your project from moving forward.
Should I buy supplies?
Absolutely not. Let’s first figure out what you want to do, what is possible and how you want to organize it. Buying the wrong supplies can just create more clutter. We always try to work with organizing products and supplies you have on hand before suggesting the purchase of additional products.
How do I keep the space organized?
Part of each project involves creating a system that works for you to keep you organized. The project’s success depends not only on our expertise and delivery but on your commitment to maintain the systems we create together. We are always available to return for periodic maintenance or to re-evaluate a space if your situation changes.
