And, this is what I know for sure…

There’s Amazing Power in Organizing your Time, Space, and Life and the Benefits are Real.


Honestly, I didn't know companies like Metropolitan Organizing existed. My experience with the company and the people who work there has been extraordinary!

It started over 7 years ago when I first moved to Apex, NC from Florida. I had 25 years of "stuff" accumulated and we were moving into a greatly downsized home. I was totally overwhelmed and demoralized.

Metropolitan was amazing. Everything they do is personally tailored to your needs. When they were finished, my home, even the garage, looked perfect. AND, most importantly, they motivated ME to work with them and actually get rid of unnecessary things I had been hanging on to with no good reason.

Since then, I have continued to work with them and currently have an appointment set up for February. Wonderful, wonderful people who keep you on track with your organization and help you get rid of the everday clutter that just seems to accumulate.

Unless your home is perfectly organized everywhere and always company-ready, you NEED Metropolitan Organizing! Extremely competent and professional. You won't be disappointed!

My Organizing Business Doubled!

I first saw Geralin on Hoarders when I was about one year into my professional organizing business. I loved how confident and classy she was, even in the stickiest of situations. When I met Geralin in person at a conference, her charismatic personality really stood out. After that, I contacted her for coaching. Since then, Geralin has been an amazing influence in my business. She and I meet a couple of times each month to discuss my business strategy. I've gained the confidence and knowledge that I need to succeed in the professional organizing business.

Geralin has always been friendly, goal-oriented and dependable. I know I can count on her when I need her the most — I don't know what I'd do without Geralin as my business coach. She lends the added support and mentorship I really need. Since beginning my work with her, my business has doubled. Anyone who is thinking of becoming a professional organizer should contact Geralin — she's an amazing mentor, leader and coach. Every time I meet with her I walk away with great information, assignments and new goals. Her cheerfulness is rejuvenating and I look forward to every session.
