Successful organizing is based on the
recognition that people get
organized because they, too, have a vision.
Paul Wellstone     


When Mom passed away, I did not know where to start.  She lived in her home for over 50 years and there was so much to take care of. Your advice on how to prepare the house for sale (target buyer- house flipper or first time home owner) instead of doing all of the renovations myself was the best way to go. While sorting through Mom's belongings, you had a keen sense of what had value, personal and monetary. Gisele, you never forced me to get rid of anything I didn't want to although you often made me think long and hard about why I wasn't letting go of certain items. Over the past couple of months I have been able to let go of more items.

(The house sold within a week for asking price. Purchased by a house flipper)
