Over at Unclutterer today, my pal Geralin Thomas of Metropolitan Organizing in Cary, N.C., has a terrific blog post on how to hire a professional organizer. It includes fifteen questions to ask a prospective organizer, as well as qualifications to look for.
I would only add that during the initial phone call with the prospective organizer, pay attention to your physical and emotional reaction to the person. Organizing (especially in your home) can be a really intimate experience; in a sense you’re baring your soul. Try to select an organizer you feel a connection with and one who puts you at ease.
Great job, Geralin!
