Testimonials

"When my aunt was diagnosed with dementia, I was left with the daunting task of cleaning out her house, organizing her paperwork and moving her into an assisted living facility.  I knew that I could not handle this task by myself and cast about for someone to help me.  Cathy came in and really helped organize the situation.  She was able to help me gather together what was needed to move my aunt to assisted living and then she stayed on to sort through thirteen years of clutter in the house.  Her contacts with other agencies were extremely helpful as well.since I also needed help with shredding documents, hauling away bags of trash, donating years of clothing and other items and locating someone to clean the house for the sale.

Cathy was very professional and did her job well.  I highly recommend her to others in similar situations.  She saved me time (which was money since I own my own business and would have had to turn down work to take care of my aunt's house) and my health.  Ultimately, she made a terrible situation a lot easier to bear. Because of her help in the house, I was able to concentrate on all the paperwork and financial arrangements and the whole transition went a lot more smoothly that I had imagined it would."

"I had just moved to a new city, started a new job and moved into a smaller home in which all of my belongings would not seem to fit. I was overwhelmed and didn't have the time to devote to getting things organized. However, I desperately needed order in my life and to have a serene home to come home to where I could exhale and relax. Cathy came in, talked to me about my needs and goals, and pretty much took it from there. She came up with great storage solutions, organized my closets, my jewelry, my shoes and my drawers. Together we worked on turning an extra bedroom into a stunning closet where I can now easily see all of my clothes and actually have fun "shopping" in my own closet! Everything is color coordinated- scarves, socks, boots, sweaters, shirts. It's fabulous! And, now I consider Cathy a trusted friend. I will hire her again and again for projects!"

"Have you ever had a dream of how you wanted your organizing project to turn out but felt overwhelmed with how to make that happen? That was us until we found Cathy. We'd had several projects in mind--from a small linen closet that we needed to be more accessible and functional, to a master closet that needed to be designed from scratch. We had a few general ideas of what we wanted the space to look like, but were less clear on how to maximize functionality. In comes Cathy. She's such a pleasure to work with (and didn't mind our cats trying to "help" her while she was taking photos and measurements). She shows up on time and listens attentively to everything you need and want the space to accomplish. She took the stress and worry out of planning and implementation and created a feel and function that we absolutely love. (I cried happy tears when I first saw the completed master closet--it was everything I'd dreamed of and more). That project was such a success that we've had her back several times to design more spaces in our house. Each time the final outcome exceeds our expectations. Her designs have made life easier and more manageable, and given our home a look that we are truly proud of."

"Thanks to Cathy, what was once a dark corner of the basement to be avoided at all cost, is now an organized place where I get all of my work done! The idea of cleaning the space was daunting enough, let alone sorting and organizing years of old piles of paper. Thanks to her knowledge and can do attitude, it got done and it’s still working, making my life easier every day."

"I have had the privilege of working with Cathy Van Volkenburg in a substantial move. Without her help the ability to downsize from a large home to a condominium would have been near impossible. Not only is she truly a great organizer but she is a wonderful, compassionate and helpful person. I am her cheerleader."
