Complimentary Consultation Session
To begin the process Elaine meets with you in your home or office to establish your strengths, challenges, priorities, and goals. During this initial assessment, her goal is to analyze your organizing needs and establish a strategy to accomplish your vision of “organized”.
With this vision, Elaine partners with you to create personal organizing systems and routines. Working one-on-one, side by side, Elaine shares organizing concepts, tools and training throughout the project. Not only will you successfully reach your goals, our sessions provide initiative, incentive, and empowerment to get and stay organized.

Elaine knows how to make downsizing less complicated. When you or a loved one decide to move into a smaller, more comfortable and convenient home or assisted living facility, we can help you through the process. Whether you’re an empty nester or need to right-size for economical reasons, Personal Touch Organizing can help you categorize your belongings to fit them into a more comfortable lifestyle. I have a team of dedicated professionals that can help get the highest price for your items and can arrange for storage or shipment of pieces to other family members.
When Seniors can no longer live safely and securely in their homes due to illness or aging, Personal Touch Organizing gives families peace of mind by coordinating all the details of relocating. The move to a retirement community, nursing care center, hospice, or even another family member’s home can sometimes be overwhelming for families. It’s more than just packing boxes with household items and selling a home. It’s also sorting through years of wonderful memories, precious heirlooms, treasured antiques, and personal belongings.
When it comes time to sell your home, 76% of realtors recommend home staging. By using home staging, you will command a higher asking price for your home, as well as shorten the time it takes to secure a sale. Let Elaine stage your home for resale and reduce this major stressor in your life.
At the consultation, we walk through your home and provide suggestions on how to maximize your home’s assets. This process usually takes 90-120 minutes.
If you should choose to continue with the staging process, we will return at a later date to implement the recommendations we made. This may include furniture rearranging to optimize space, neutralizing with paint color, and de-cluttering, and accessorizing to create a designer look. After we transform your house into a model home, simply sit back and watch it sell quickly for top dollar.
From the largest of events to the most elegant of dinner parties, Elaine can bring your event to life! Her experience in organizing corporate sales meetings and tradeshows, fundraising events, and themed parties make Elaine the ideal choice. No event is too large or small. We even plan children's themed birthday parties.
