I recently spent the day with the fabulous Donnie Bowen, of The Bowen Team Remax, working in this INCREDIBLE beach front property last month. The pictures had already been taken but Donnie wanted to just clean up some of the closet spaces, bathroom counters, declutter some shelving, address some landscape & outdoor beautification trouble spots, and add a few final touches to ready the home for Open House that weekend …enter Organized & Orderly!

This lovely property in The Village in Coto De Caza received the full works with Organized & Orderly recently. The owners are downsizing and moving to the beach and their realtor Donnie Bowen, Re-Max, The Bowen Team asked us to bring our expert eyes to assess how to efficiently maximize it’s appeal before it listed for sale.
As usual, we started with a Pre-Listing Consultation, going room by room, front yard and patio included. The owners were midway through renovating their master bath and we were able to recommend a paint color that would work well with tile samples we saw.
Our recommendations included a LOT of decluttering and as the owners were downsizing AND going with a more “beachy” decor, most of their items were either too large, or didn’t fit their new look.
We asked if it was ok to take down the flowery drapes in the master bedroom as well as one of the guest rooms and as both rooms had blinds, they were happy to oblige.
After the bathroom renovation work was complete, O&O arrived for the rest of the makeover.
We worked with the homeowners to identify the few items they wanted to take with them to their new home, packing them up ready for moving, then making piles of donations and trash. We identified some items that we could use for staging which we set to one side. We removed the family room and dining room rug and relocated the couch for better flow. We removed a large chair and ottoman in the family room and virtually all their artwork. We then set about staging with accessories. Take a look at our before and afters to see the transformation.
Both the homeowners and their realtor were thrilled with the results.

The Zen of Organizing philosophy refers to the creation of a calm, peace-filled, and joyous environment.
Myth: Organizing is a skill you have to be born with. Fact: Anyone can learn to become organized.
Less Stuff Means…less to clean, less to organize, less to store, less mess
Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.
The secret of getting ahead is getting started.
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit.
Clutter is a weight that has built on top of you so gradually, you don’t even realize anymore that it is holding you down.
Organizing is what you do before you do something, so that when you do it, it is not all mixed up.
Being organized is being in control.
For every minute spent organizing, an hour is earned.
