What Clients Are Saying about Jen Cazares and Livable Spaces
Jen and her team spent a week with my wife and myself to organize our entire home. We went room by room to review contents, determine what to keep and what could be donated/pitched and how to thoughtfully organize each space to minimize clutter and maximize efficiency and flow. While this may sound like an easy and straightforward project, it took a significant amount of upfront planning, time, patience, collaboration, determination and focus. Jen is very effective and results-oriented in her approach to working with people who may have very different philosophies and perspectives on organization to achieve a balanced, mutually satisfactory solution. The end result was that our entire house (garage included) is now reasonably clutter-free and nicely organized. We could not be happier with or more grateful for Jen’s help and support. Many thanks for everything, Jen!
I retired in 2012 after working for over 40 years and raising four children. My home of 42 years was deeply in need of decluttering and downsizing. I fully expected that I would finally have time to do this, not realizing that my ADHD would be an obsticle that I couldn't overcome. After six years of failure, I found an online organizing program that was suited to people with ADHD and could be an answer. Eight months into it, I found that it was working in part. But, the job was so overwhelming I decided it would take too much time to reach my goal. I couldn't do it alone and I really needed help. I went back online to search and found an organization named National Association of Professional Organizers.
I discovered there that Jennifer Cazares was certified and lived in the next city to where I live! I sent a request and Jennifer responded immediately! She sounded so warm and inviting and happy that I contacted her. Jennifer would become the answer to my prayer. Actually, she goes above and beyond that. She lit a fire within me. Turns out, she is very warm and happy to help with your project. I've worked with her for five weeks now and the transformation of my home is amazing to me. It's been a delight to work along side her. She offers her awesome steadfast support, guidance and encouragement along your journey. She has stayed in contact with me on an 'off' day and inspires me to think about what I want to accomplish in the next session.
I am so motivated by her that I continue the work on my own during the remaining days. As a result, I feel more in control and not immobilized, less overwhelmed by clutter and more proactive. It's like getting out of jail from the chaos and finally feeling free! The future tasks become more clear and achievable for me. It's truly elevating! All because Jennifer came to my rescue and turned my world right side up.
"Jennifer has been a god-send, and it is a pleasure to work with her! After too many years of “collecting” and hoarding behavior, I am now challenged with dealing with the result. I often become overwhemled, lose motivation and am unable to move forward. Jen knows just how to tackle whatever the challenge might be, she knows right where to start and digs in head first. Throughout the process, Jen is encouraging, supportive and knows just the right amount of nudging to keep things moving towards your goal without making you feel like you have lost control of the process.
With Jen’s help, I was able to make my home accessible enough to return there following orthopaedic surgery, rather than go to a skilled nursing facility. Jennifer is an utmost professional, but she is also an understanding and caring individual who shows sincere concern for her clients. We have only gone a short ways on the long path ahead, but I know with Jennifer’s expertise, energy and support, I am going to be successful in reaching my goal of having a well-appointed, uncluttered environment."
