Hi Kirsten, We want to thank you for taking such good care of us during this stressful time of moving. Your staff did such a wonderful job, with joy and patience! We’re incredibly impressed with the end result… it was one of the best investments we’ve made in this entire process!”
“I recently hired Organized and Orderly to help me move from my 4000 sq ft home to our new 1800 sq ft beach house. Kirsten created a plan complete with timeline of all the steps she and her team would take to get me completely moved out by the stated deadline. Kirsten did a phenomenal job managing the whole process from start to finish. From going room by room with me to determine what was going to storage, what was going to the new home, and what was going to consignment, each labeled with a specific color of tape to ensure every item was dealt with appropriately, to coordinating the movers and scheduling the appointments with the consignment company.
The organized and orderly team was very professional and trustworthy. I have a hectic travel schedule and needed someone who I would feel comfortable being in my home when I was traveling. Kirsten and her team gave me that peace of mind. They showed up on time and always left the space clean and organized before they left. I honestly don’t know how I would’ve done it without them! I highly recommend this company.”
“Kirsten has been a breath of fresh air for myself but most of all my clients. What would otherwise be an overwhelming experience with “Peoples Stuff” turns into a story, she creates rooms with a theme with the owner’s things, it’s real living. All of my homes end up selling quickly because of small and sometimes large adjustments. Thank you Kirsten you are a dear.”
“A BIG thumbs up to Kirsten and her crew!!! We recently listed our house, with the decision to downsize and SIMPLIFY!!
I was extremely overwhelmed with the inevitable task ahead of sorting , decluttering, organizing and making decisions on what to keep , donate, or throw … along with getting the house ready for showing.
Kirsten, with her expertise and yrs of experience, came in with two of her crew and whipped everything into shape ! They were very efficient and professional!
I enjoyed working with them … and was amazed at the transformation of my house !
Kirsten is a gem and is highly qualified to assist you with getting your home organized and orderly !!
I highly recommend using this company to decrease the load and stress level when in the midst of the daunting job of selling your home .
It took a huge weight of my shoulders and allowed me to get accomplished what I needed to, without running myself ragged!
Thanks , Kirsten and crew for a great job!”
“Kirsten and Melanie did a fabulous job staging our house when we put it on the market. I fell in love with so much of their decorating that I am going to recreate it in my new home! They also helped us declutter closets and the pantry. I would highly recommend for either staging or just home organization. They are so easy to work with!”
“We moved into our home several months ago and I kept thinking I’d go through my closet and get it organized, but never got to it myself. Kirsten came in and had it looking like a dream in just a few hours. She helped me prioritize which items to keep and then handled donations for those that I was ready to share with someone else!”
“I was a disorganized mess before Kirsten came into my world. She completely transformed the way I handle every material thing that enters my life. Because of her guidance and advice, I no longer hold onto material things out of guilt (hand me downs from my parents) or a longing for the past (kids memorabilia or class crafts). Kirsten worked diligently and efficiently to purge the items I no longer need, in a way that was not overwhelming or exhausting. She carefully and deliberately organized my shelves, cupboards and all storage areas for my specific lifestyle. My home now operates with maximum efficiency and I’m able to find things without wasting hours searching! I no longer feel burdened with “stuff” which has cleared my mind for more important things like creativity and travel! Kirsten’s organizational skills have truly revolutionized my family’s home. Thank you!”
“Kirsten has organized my home office, my children’s bedrooms (and closets), and my kitchen pantry. After a recent interior paint change, Kirsten helped me redecorate my family room, entry way and kitchen. She has a wonderful eye for decor and is extremely efficient.”
“I’ve worked with Kirsten for over seven years – initially as the owner of A Closet Tailors franchise, more recently as a busy Mom with two children. She was essential in helping the homeowner decide how to organize and maximize their closet footprint for maximum storage. Kirsten has now become an essential part of our household. With each major project we start she is with us every step of the way. I’ve referred Kirsten to over a dozen friends and family. Everyone has been thrilled with the work she has done.”
“Kirsten helped me prepare my entire home for a move from the west coast to the east coast. She is hard working, dependable and most of all, can make sense of every area of your space. A++”
“Exceptional. one of a kind. Really need someone like her on east coast!”
“One of the most highly recommended individuals I have come across in a long long time!!!”
“Are you in need of getting organized for any event? We highly recommend you contact Kirsten Ranger at Organized & Orderly! She is absolutely awesome! How do you thank someone for making your job so much easier? Kirsten from Organized & Orderly keeps our customers happy with her many talents. Her organizational and people skills are a wonderful combination! It’s nice to find people so professional and trustworthy to conduct business with. We look forward to a long term relationship with Kirsten and highly recommend her services to anyone! We have worked with Kirsten on several jobs and could not have asked for more!”
“I have used Kirsten for a long time. She has helped me organize everything from my closet to our garage. She is the hardest worker and a good friend. She also helped me from start to finish with our move. I couldn’t have done it without her. Please feel free to call me for a reference anytime! 949-870-0800”
“It is my great pleasure to write a recommendation for Kirsten Ranger. She is AMAZING. The first time I met her, I was embarrassed by the pile of documents and “”stuff” that I had accumulated since I had been so busy being a mom to three boys. But she put me at ease. She was not afraid (I had to ask her about three times if she was going to run away)! Since she first came she returns on a regular basis and she helps both me and my husband with all of our filing and organizational needs. We even called her once when we were traveling abroad and she took care of everything we needed. I cannot recommend Kirsten highly enough. Nothing would scare her off (trust me), and she can handle a lot of decision making. It is hard to have a stranger come into your home, but with Kirsten you can rest assured that everything will be handled most professionally and she will just make your home more organized!”
“She entered my home office, a task that normally would demand a Haz-Met uniform, and undismayed by 16 years of clutter, managed to preserve essential patient records and medical material, making sense out of a landscape that reflected the spirit of the London Blitz! Order out of chaos, with sensitivity. A godsend!”
“True to her word, Kirsten turns chaos and clutter into organized and orderly. She has helped me organize my personal office twice, and in another instance, she was able to turn a neglected workspace into an office we can be proud of. I manage a real estate office and have referred Kirsten to hundreds of agents. Our agents engage Kirsten on their listings to ensure that the properties they represent are de-cluttered and de-personalized by the time they hit the market. Her ability to make a property looks its absolute best makes a wonderful difference in a buyer’s first impression! Kirsten’s warm and diplomatic approach with clients helps ease them into accepting her advice, which quickly builds credibility for our agents. Kirsten is the total package: friendly and approachable, but fiercely equipped to handle any big project or major deadline. Not only has she been an invaluable asset to me, I am a firm believer that Kirsten Ranger’s proven ability as a professional organizer and stager is a key component to the success of any agent and their sellers in this highly competitive real estate market.”
“Seriously, give yourself a gift – a gift of less clutter and freedom from things ! I was stunned to hear Americans spend 55 mins on average looking for “things” I had the privilege of Kirsten Ranger with Organized & Orderly assist me with the task of decluttering my home and office. It was money well spent as it has changed spending habits. When you have a decluttered, functional space you do not want to buy “stuff” and ruin the space or flow. I love that my closet makes sense now : it’s easy to get dressed (no more hunting for a blouse and not finding it only to have to change the entire outfit) and I don’t spend time searching for lost keys, lock boxes and files anymore…”
“If anyone is on the fence with whether or not to hire an organizer/stager when getting ready to sell your home…DO IT!!! And hire Organized and Orderly! Time is money! And the amount of time Kirsten and her team will save you will pay you back in $$$s in the long run! They were fast, professional, kind and completely non-judgmental when helping to edit out all of our clutter. I only wish we had used them sooner! Our house sold for almost $20k above asking and I firmly believe it was due to the work of Organized and Orderly!!”
“Kirsten is wonderful to work with. She helps me stay on track with my listings which sell faster and for more $$$ than the market average. Additionally the de-cluttering process enables sellers to emotionally separate themselves from their old property and mentally move to their new home.”
“When I met Kirsten the state of my office was chaos and clutter. Kirsten not only helped me untangle my unorganized mess of an office, but she also helped me create systems to STAY ORGANIZED for the future. This part was key for me. I had tried spring cleaning and “organizing” before, but I always set myself up for failure by creating structure my personality would never follow. Kirsten helped me understand that in order to have long lasting change we had to find a method that I would actually follow. I highly recommend her!!!”
“I can’t say enough good things about Kirsten and Rita! My husband and I recently found and put an offer in on our dream home. This left us needing to quickly put our current home on the market, and to sell it fast! With just a day’s notice, Kirsten and Rita came into my house to help me de-clutter (they helped me sort through my accumulated belongings to decide what to keep, donate, and trash). They boxed up things I was keeping but didn’t want out during showings, then staged my home (using a combination of my own things and Kirsten’s beautiful accessories) to help make my home appealing to potential buyers. When they were done, my home looked like a model home. I’m pleased to report that in less than 2 weeks, we had an offer above our asking price (which I attribute in large part to the beautiful de-cluttering and staging). Kirsten and Rita worked so fast, and so hard, I was amazed at how much they accomplished in such a short period of time. They were incredibly thorough, thoughtful, and detailed. And they were both so pleasant to work with. If you need help de-cluttering and getting organized, whether in conjunction with a move or not, Organized and Orderly is your one stop shop!”
“Thank you Kirsten for a superb job of making my listing in Laguna Niguel appealing and show ready by eliminating and arranging furniture and accessories. You have extraordinary vision and creativity and my clients were amazed and accepted all your suggestions so we can better show their large custom home in the gated community of Palmela. You so transformed the appearance I have reschedule my photographer to re-shoot the interior to better advertise and market the home as we know first impressions are invaluable. We used your handyman staff and they too were terrific and fairly priced. My clients are moving to Scottsdale, and you mention you travel, so I think you will be getting a call after we close escrow. Thanks again.”
“Imagine this: a home sells in three days with a 30 day escrow. Yes, that’s what happened to us. But we had no fear, because we already knew Kirsten would rescue us. Organized & Orderly she is, for sure. Kirsten “staged” our home so well it sold before we could turn around and say “Keep Calm!” Then, not only did she give us an excellent price for packing, she also referred movers (whom we really liked). Kirsten and her crew did such a good job packing that it only took the movers three hours to be finished and on their way. Thank you so much, Kirsten and crew.”
For every minute spent organizing, an hour is earned.
Less Stuff Means…less to clean, less to organize, less to store, less mess
The Zen of Organizing philosophy refers to the creation of a calm, peace-filled, and joyous environment.
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.
The secret of getting ahead is getting started.
Myth: Organizing is a skill you have to be born with. Fact: Anyone can learn to become organized.
Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.
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.
