“Hiring Louise was a fantastic decision for our family! She came with boundless energy and enthusiasm and was able to ascertain our goals in a very short time. There wasn’t a closet, drawer or cupboard left untouched by the time she was done. Louise also understood our commitment to recycling and was able to help us gather enough items for a very lucrative garage sale and fill up our van twice to take to Goodwill. When she left our home was sparkling clean, sorted and organized. What a breath of fresh air!” Miranda J., professional organizing service
“Louise is a pleasant and professional service provider for whom we only have praise. We would not hesitate to recommend her and wish her continued success.” Don & Helen M., personal assistant service 
“We have used Louise’s services on many occasions now. We have found her to be completely reliable and willing to go the extra mile when required.” Rolly & Peggy DR., personal assistant service
“Louise was an absolute pleasure to work with! She came over and helped me clear out the clutter from basically the entire main floor of my house within a few hours. I can only imagine how long this would have taken on my own. I really appreciated Louise’s intuitive attention to detail and her commitment to getting stuff DONE. If you’re looking to get organized in an efficient but easygoing manner – I highly recommend working with Louise.” Dr. Joanna P., professional organizing service
“Louise stayed at our place for a weekend and looked after our dogs.  It was great peace of mind.  Louise was attentive and took great care of ‘our boys’. I would not hesitate to recommend Louise to anyone, nor would I hesitate to use her services again.” Jane L., personal assistant service
“Louise’s attention to detail, willingess to take on new challenges and delivery of superb results, makes working with her a real delight.” Caroline, T., NADUM Inc., virtual assistant service
“Thank you again for your excellent assistance & expertise.” Jennie J., professional organizing service
“After my wife passed away, Louise was invaluable in helping me move from a 6,000 sq. ft home to a much smaller, manageable bungalow.  Not only did she help me in the entire sorting, purging and packing process, she also made arrangements and managed the details with a local auction house and organized my simplified belongings into my new home. I would fully recommend her services.” George H., professional organizing service
“Northumberland’s best kept secret.” Mary M., personal assistant service
“Simplify merely changed my life. My home office has never been better organized (and seriously decluttered!) and my accountant sent me kudos for finally graduating from the pile of papers shoved into a shoebox. Makes a huge difference! Next? The garage…. ” Kurt L., KLynn Website Consulting, small business organizing service
