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

Professional and Flexible

We have worked with Metropolitan Organizing® over the past 18 months, and achieved more than we ever expected. We really appreciate their work as we have been able to accomplish a level of organizing that saves us time and makes our day-to-day life more convenient.

The combination of compassion and focus has allowed us to make decisions during the sessions without feeling pressured. We have found the Metropolitan Organizing® team to be professional and flexible in working with us to effectively meet our goals. It has been well worth the investment to be able to enjoy our home!

Clear Direction and Invaluable Benefit

I scheduled a few private coaching sessions with Geralin and set a financial goal for Get Organized Already that seemed way out there — like something we could get to in three years, maybe. If the planets aligned.

Well, when I reconciled the books for the year, we had met the goal thanks to the clear direction and invaluable benefit of Geralin's experience.

When You Wear What Makes You Feel Comfortable and Confident, Something Magical Happens.

My Favorite Resource

Geralin, I love your advice about creating a closet of classics that can be worn for years; it's the real reason I bought the Wardrobe Wisdom booklet. I was in the audience and loved what you were wearing — very classy and stylish. The booklet has become my favorite resource when shopping and decluttering my closets (yes, I said closets with an 's').

Engages the Audience

We asked Geralin to come and do a few programs for our Summer Break program at the Charlotte Mecklenburg Library.

Geralin's programs were all completely full with waiting lists at the four libraries where she did programs. She is a fantastic speaker and really engages the audience throughout her program.

She encourages questions, comments, and audience feedback and is very entertaining while also giving great tips and tricks for organizing.

I had multiple people at each program tell me how much they enjoyed her program and thanked the library for inviting Geralin to come speak. I was also personally inspired to clean out my closet and get rid of a bunch of clothes that I had been hanging onto for almost 5 years (hoping to fit back into them)!

I was very impressed with Geralin and would highly recommend her as a speaker and would love to have her come back to the library and do future programs as well.
