what to look for when hiring an organizer

Working with a Professional Organizer is one of the most intimate services you will invest in, so it makes sense to spend some time selecting with whom you choose to work.  Arrange a discussion by phone or email to find out more about the organizer in question. 

Ask questions such as:

  • How long have you been organizing?
  • Have you worked on a similar project?
  • Do you carry insurance?
  • How do you charge for your services?
  • Do you work alone or as a team?

It’s a two-way conversation for both of you to determine if you are a good fit to work together.  Be prepared to share details about your situation, including:

  • What budget you have in mind
  • When you’d like to begin working together and any deadlines for the project
  • Whether you smoke or have pets
  • Special situations that the organizer should be aware of such as physical challenges, illness etc.
  • Where you live
  • Directions and parking instructions

When interviewing potential organizers, be sure you feel comfortable with the person you’re working with. A sign of a good organizer will be one who asks questions to better understand your situation, and who listens attentively to your answers. After all, you’re investing in a customized solution that has to work for you.

Seek an organizer who belongs to Professional Organizers in Canada. All members adhere to a specific code of ethics.
