Reviews from Clients Organized by Nicole
I have been staring at the before/after pictures for the past hour and I cannot believe the amazing transformation from then until now. Nicole and her team (the "Dream Team") came to our rescue after my husband and I got married, blended households and were completely paralyzed by the amount of "stuff" we each had accumulated over the course of our lives.
When the Dream Team arrived, there wasn't a place in our nearly-5,000-square-foot house that wasn't cluttered by half-emptied moving boxes, plastic totes, piles of clothes, and lord only knows what else. It truly looked like a whole family of hoarders lived there. I honestly recall looking around our bedroom one morning and feeling a sense of despair. That's when I started Googling for professional organizers....and I was literally willing to go into debt to get help. Luckily, I found Nicole!
It took the Dream Team (5 workers) a series of 3 full days to pull everything out of every box, every CLOSET, every drawer and place it on sorting tables so that we could easily see and sort through what we wanted to keep, donate or trash. This was exactly what we needed to conceptualize what we needed to do. We ended up donating 15+ trailer loads of quality furniture, clothing, kitchen items, and toys to Goodwill, along with at least 2 trailer-loads that went straight to the landfill.
When the Dream Team left, we still had a huge mountain of items and clothing that came from my husband's closet to sort through, but the Dream Team pre-sorted everything in such a way that he was able to make decisions fairly easily.
Our organizational journey began in July 2017, and has continued until right now, November 26, 2017. The result is AMAZING. If you have a chance, check out our before/after pictures on Nicole's website. We still have some work to do, but overall, we finally have an organized home.
We NEVER could have done this without the help of the Dream Team. It was worth every penny. I only wish I would have known about these services sooner!
One more thing...if you're on the fence about using a professional organizer because of the cost, I promise you that it costs MUCH less than you think. Nicole is flexible on pricing and delivers more value than it costs. Although I was willing to go into debt to get help organizing, I didn't have to do that! Nicole provided exceptional value for the price.
"Being in our seventies, we were leery about making the move to an apartment in a senior retirement center. The task was overpowering. Organized by Nicole was recommended as a solution, and it was one of the best decisions we ever made to use their services. The team came to our house, evaluated the situation, and presented us with a plan to make the transition from our home of 46 years to a 2 bedroom apartment as worry-free as possible. Every step in the move had been well thought out, and on the day of the move, we simply watched as they "worked their plan." Adjustments, with our approval, were made where necessary. When the sun went down on our new digs, we slept comfortably in an apartment "Organized by Nicole."
"My wife and I are recently retired Public School teachers living in Poinciana. We sold our home and decided to move from Poinciana to Good Samaritan Village in Kissimmee. The fact of packing, moving, and getting things setup was overwhelming. Nicole and her team were absolutely spectacular. They visited our house, measured everything for our new home, organized everything for the move, helped load the truck and when we arrived after closing to our new home, they had everything set up. They were so fantastic and personable, that anyone even thinking of a move, would be foolish to not consider Organized by Nicole. Absolutely loved the work they did and appreciated the lack of stress for this move. Very professional, organized and great at listening. THEY WERE GREAT!"
"Nicole is a joy to work with, first organizing my home office and then my garage. She listens to your needs, respects your precious "treasures" and delights you with the results! I highly recommend Nicole to put some sanity back in whatever unorganized rooms are driving you crazy!"
"There is only one phrase that comes to mind when I think of Nicole Ramer and her company, Organized by Nicole, "Peace of Mind"!!!! My wife and I decided to move to a senior community in Lakeland and were totally freaked out at the thought of downsizing, decluttering and packing up and moving from our home of 30 years to a two bedroom apartment. Nicole helped with every aspect of the move from pre-planning, packing, moving and unpacking our household goods. The pre-packing was done the day before the move and by the end of the day of the move, we were in our new apartment, the furniture was in place, the bed made and all the essentials unpacked and placed where they needed to be. To say the wife and I felt useless is meant as a complement as Nicole and her team stepped in and took care of everything. We just stood back and watched as they handled our belonging as if they were their own. I served in the Air Force for 21 years and moved 11 times and wished I would have had Nicole for all of them. And I have no doubt that using Nicole saved us money. The speed, organization and efficiency of her team saved time which in the moving business is money. Our thanks to Nicole and her team for a job well done!"
"I moved to the Winter Haven area about 2 ½ years ago. I downsized from a large house to a condo and, shortly after the move, also lost my Mother. I am normally a very organized person, but found myself overwhelmed with tons of boxes of paperwork and items that I had not yet found the time or energy to unpack. I really needed help going through everything this time. I’m so glad I found Nicole. She is truly a lifesaver.
I immediately felt at ease with Nicole, as if we had known each other for years. She is very professional and trustworthy, but more importantly, she is kind and non-judgmental. She focuses on the task at hand and doesn’t get sidetracked. She helps you put systems in place to get organized and stay organized.
Our first project was to tackle the office and all that paperwork. Nicole quickly helped me sort through TONS of boxes of paperwork – both mine and my Mother’s. We organized all the documents and office supplies and set up a complete filing system.
We have completed projects in other areas of the house as well, including several closets and storage areas. We have made tremendous progress and I plan to continue having Nicole assist me with the remainder of my projects until everything is complete.
I want to express my heartfelt appreciation to Nicole for everything she has done to help me get my life back on track. I will be forever grateful."

"All I can say is "Wow" and how lucky that I was to find out about Nicole and her services! Seven hours flew by and I will definitely use her again and recommend her to anyone who is serious about attention to detail."

This review was sent from my client to the life care community we organized her move to:
"Now that the packing is all finished, I want to tell you what a wonderful, thoughtful job Nicole did. She is extremely well organized, thinks how to do things the best, most efficient way, there is no haphazard move, everything is calculated to produce the most efficient outcome. She, and her assistant worked steadily for the two mornings they were here. Also, they were unobtrusive, it was an easy two days, and a pleasure to see them work together so very well. I want to thank you for choosing such a nice team. I felt most comfortable having them in the house."
"Organized by Nicole was responsible for all phases of a recent move from my three bedroom home of nineteen years to a three-room apartment in a life care community. She and her team took great care to pack and organize more than fifty boxes followed by a one day move of what I was able to fit into the reduced space in a way that exceeded my expectations in every way. At the end of the day I had made a complete transition that even included a number of pictures on the wall. Nicole was very aware of my stress level at age 84 and took special care to reassure me whenever I seemed in need of emotional support.
I would recommend her to anyone in need of an organized move involving simple to complex execution."

"A move from a house to a third floor apartment, in the rain, was done with very little worry on my part. Her knowledge and energy took all the pain out of an otherwise difficult, unpleasant move."
"This week Nicole came to my storage unit and she visited my condo, in order to help me prepare and sort for a church garage sale I'm participating in during March. Because I'll be taking car loads to the church sale, I really wanted to get as organized and ready as possible. Nicole was awesome! ...she and I work along side each other for 5hrs, and she has superb teamwork skills (with) her clients. She also offers to organize for her clients w/out working side-by-side ...but working along side, Nicole really helped me think about placing my 20yrs worth of "stuff" into categories and narrow it all down into a more manageable project, in which allows me to see that I have a Light at the End of the Tunnel of my Stuff ...as opposed to Not thinking that I'll ever be able to get through All my 20yrs worth of Stuff ...and We all have Stuff! ...but Nicole really teaches her clients How to make it controllable and not overwhelming. Thanks Nicole!! =)"
