BEFORE & AFTER
Michelle is a lifesaver! I hired her only a few weeks after my family and I moved into a smaller house, and although I had done my best to purge before the move, there was so much more to do.
Unlike my prior move, I was determined to also tackle every single unpacked box and "find a place for everything and put everything in its place." I couldn't have done it without Michelle! When I would get overwhelmed, she would direct me to smaller "starter" tasks that allowed me to maintain my focus, and her ability to maintain constant calm in the face of mass disarray was not only commendable but invaluable. Moreover, she is a truly delightful person to have around, and she is so trustworthy that I very quickly allowed her to come into my home when I wasn't there (and was always thrilled to find it in better shape than when I left it!).
She is extremely timely and professional, yet also personable and compassionate.
She understands people's personal attachment to their things and approaches the purging process in the most respectful and gentle manner.
She also has a clever array of storage tricks, tips, and solutions at her fingertips and she is a meticulous organizer.
I am known to be a very tough customer, and I would recommend her to anyone without reservation!

I am so happy that I made the decision to use Michelle at Properly Placed! The thing I love most about her is that she can think creatively and make recommendations that are spot on. She is so knowledgeable and trustworthy and overall just an amazing motivator to get the job done.
She organized our garage and a few closets and I literally love to just look at them now because they are so nicely organized. Michelle is just fantastic and just so good at what she does.

I discovered Properly Placed online in 2014. Michelle has turned out to be a gem in many ways. I had just received a diagnosis of ADHD and knew I would need help in dealing with the clutter that my lack of organizational ability had created.
Michelle has a special touch for helping people get organized according to individual strengths and preferences. She has set up organizational structure for me in several areas of my home including closets, books, personal papers and more. The best part of what she has done has been to see myself begin to be organized on my own, for the first time.
Michelle has a strong work ethic and is punctual and professional. She listens to my concerns and gives useful suggestions. There is no judgment about my clutter, only understanding, patience, and a desire to help. I have enjoyed every day that we have worked together and can recommend Michelle heartily.
Thank you Michelle for the fantastic job you did helping my husband clean and organize his office and closet. You accomplished more in four hours, than I was able to get done in 5 years! And you made it easy for him to get it done and keep it neat. I finally can see the floor! I have recommended you to everyone I know!

Our garage cleanout with Michelle was actually life changing….and prompted me to work on other areas of organization following her method.

Can't say enough great things about professional organizer Michelle Rawicz. She is professional, lovely, thoughtful and a joy to work with. I have had her help me in my home and referred her to many. Everyone I send her to loves her.
She can handle any job and has great suggestions on how to manage all kinds of clutter from toys to paperwork.

Michelle did a great job of helping me sort out and organize a large closet area jam packed with 34 years of family pictures, table linens and items .
Her creative techniques of sorting, organizing, storing and getting rid of items and donating were helpful. She is fun to work with too.
For busy home owners, I highly recommend her services .

Michelle did a great job helping me organizing my mudroom. She had great ideas on how to streamline and organize the space in a way that worked for all 5 of my family members.
The structure she put in place has helped keep us organized on an everyday basis, and now everyone knows where to find everything. Michelle was efficient, creative and reasonable.
I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to better organize and streamline any area of their house.
