Created Balance Between Work and Family

What a GREAT experience we’ve had working with Geralin Thomas of Metropolitan Organizing ®! The tools Geralin provided inspired me with the creativity and determination to take my mortgage business to the next level. In just three short months my team has realized significant growth thanks to Geralin’s help. Geralin also infused organization into our home creating the balance between work and family that I so desperately desired.

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.

Like Having a Fairy Godmother

These Wardrobe Wisdom tips came in so handy as I was cleaning my closet for fall. Having a list nearby for reminders is like having a fairy godmother reminding me of what is important... as well as what has seen better days!
