Helena has transformed my basement into a space I can use on a daily basis for my crafts and chores. It was covered in clutter from over 30 years and I couldn’t even walk into it. Now I can do it and find all I need. She sorted and labeled every single container and I love it. We worked side-by-side with me and she is such a great company and always in great mood. I truly looked forward to our sessions and I will always remember her as I use my new space!

If you want to bring your home and life into peaceful order, I have 2 words…”Hire Helena”.  She is a fantastic organizer, business person, and human being. I couldn’t recommend her more. We have loved having her help in our new home. We have moved several times in the 20 (something) years we’ve been a family. The move to San Diego from the Midwest last fall was an exciting adventure that we were ready for.  The moving company that we hired, however, left much to be desired.   To put it mildly, they were terrible. In reminiscing, I have said they might as well have used a backhoe and shovel our neatly organized house into the truck, shaken it across the country and dumped it into our garage.  Worst physical move ever! Thank goodness that I found Helena’s Professional Organizing business in my Google search.  She was kind and helpful from the very beginning. We worked together to bring order and reason back to our home and lives. It seemed an impossible task in the beginning, but with Helena’s help, soon the spaces we focused on became organized and liveable. This kind of work can be very personal and difficult to manage, but Helena made it simple and smooth.  We have worked very hard and achieved so much in a very short amount of time. I highly, highly recommend hiring ‘A Personal Organizer‘ and Helena’s awesome organizing and business skills.  We are forever grateful to her.

I have used Helena’s excellent services for several years now and for two different homes.  She always makes things easy for me! She’s a true pro with great organizational skills…we all know that about her but just wait until she comes into your home!  It’s an amazing experience.  I have used her help in closets, kitchens and home offices…..next project:  the garage!  I know it will be a fabulous gift to myself.

I called Helena for help at a very difficult time following the deaths of my parents and my sister. I was Executor of their estates and, after clearing out their homes, I had accumulated a lot of objects and papers- some of which had great sentimental value and some of which I needed to settle their financial affairs. I have a small home with very little storage space and much of this “stuff” had been shoved in my son’s room while he was away at college. Facing the task of organizing and clearing out this space made me feel sad, guilty and overwhelmed. Helena understood my needs and the situation. Using great sensitivity and patience she helped me reclaim my son’s room before he came home for the summer. Working with an organizer requires trust and good communication. Helena is a lovely person who is easy and comfortable to work with. I highly recommend her services. I just wish she was still on the East Coast because I have more projects I need her help with!

Helena has been a true blessing!  I feel very fortunate to have found her, and to utilize her services. So many words can be used to describe Helena.  So let’s begin… Helena is patient, knowledgeable, kind, thoughtful, respectful, creative, resourceful, visionary, organized, motivating… and so much more. If you are overwhelmed by your need to organize, you owe it to yourself to review Helena’s bio (very impressive… and let me say it again… knowledgeable).  You will have that proverbial “weight” lifted from your shoulders. Thank you, Helena, for all you have done for me!

Helena is a bright, energetic and passionate professional organizer who made a huge difference for me and my family through her joy, clarity, and commitment to help me get organized.  Helena helped me analyze my family’s use of our space.  Then, she helped me get the “stuff” cluttering our home environment either put in its correct place or out of the way altogether.  The process with Helena was a key step so that I could then start my new business.  Helena makes getting and staying organized enjoyable and simple!  I wholeheartedly recommend Helena and her organizing business.

Phenomenal results! Helena is a true professional and extremely knowledgeable.  We thoroughly enjoyed working with her and she made this whole organizing process so easy. I followed her on Facebook and read so many of her awesome tips before realizing that I could not really accomplish what I wanted to by myself.  Working full-time and trying to keep a household organized is overwhelming — I’m not afraid to admit it! Hiring Helena to help us was one of the best decisions we ever made — I’m so happy to have the clutter gone and workable systems in place to maintain our “NEW HOME”.  Well, we don’t actually have a new home…but it feels like it now! We started with the most important part of our house — THE KITCHEN — and worked our way down the list. It sounds simple — but even putting new sliding shelves in the pantry and cabinets was a blessing.  We were so buried in not being able to find anything that we were not only wasting a lot of food but not using a lot of our dishware, kitchen appliances, etc. because they were too hard to get to…now we can see everything.  Helena gave us a lot of ideas and helped us implement ways to make the kitchen, fridge, etc. more efficient. I feel like I’m on a cooking show now – LOL. We moved through the rest of the house easily and again, Helena just made it easy. Real quick about starting because this was important for us — she came to the house first to look and then after we agreed to the priorities and ideas, Helena actually purchased all of the items for the organizing (put it on our invoice) so we didn’t get paralyzed trying to make decisions about things that she was better qualified to take care of….easy. We are very happy and friends that saw the before//after call our home ‘the HGTV’ home — we love it!
