The fastest way to make money is to sell your property quickly! Carol ensures clients spend their money where it counts which makes for client gratification rather than apprehension.  


HOME ORGANIZATION

Carol is a licensed Professional Organizer with Cincinnati based, Organize 365® Certification Program and has ​​over 15+ years of experience and countless hours working one-on-one with clients organizing in their homes. This has enabled her to master an optimal process to coach individuals of all backgrounds and personalities. The primary objective is to help clients get organized for the long term or provide special help during stressful life events such as downsizing or moving.


Carol especially enjoys helping families with special needs member(s).  Organizing to help someone with ADHD is very different than organizing an OCD personality or diagnosis.  When a person can better manage their surroundings and responsibilities, regardless of their disability or situation, they will be more successful and have a peace of mind.
