Code of Ethics

This Code of Ethics is a set of principles that governs the professional conduct of Professional Organizers with clients, colleagues and the community. Code of Ethics for Professional Organizers -is committed to the highest ethical standards for all Professional Organizers who pledge to exercise judgment, self-restraint and conscience in their conduct in order to establish and maintain public confidence. And to preserve and encourage fair and equitable practices among all who are engaged in the profession of organizing.

What is a Professional Organizer?

A professional organizer is a person that uses their knowledge and expertise to work with clients by guiding, teaching, and suggesting solutions and systems to help them to reach and subsequently maintain their organizational goals. A professional organizer is not a cleaning service. They are experts who can recommend and teach you new ways of doing things. When it comes to selecting someone who will work with you closely and you will be teaching about your intimate habits, they should be educated, communicate well, be non-judgmental, respectful, flexible, and compassionate as well as strong enough to keep you on task and focused. Just Organized by Taya provides this to all of their customers.

Why should I use a Professional Organizer?

There are plenty of reasons that you should use a professional organizer. Ask yourself:
Am I drowning in paper?
Am I losing space in my home due to growing piles of clutter?
Am I wasting time looking for lost items?
Am I paying late fees for not paying my bills on time?
Is this situation causing me frustration and stress?
Am I spending money on items that I know have bought, but can’t find?
If you have answered yes to any or even all of these questions, then you would benefit from the help of Just Organized by Taya. Even though there are some who lead an organized life, but have found that they are disorganized due to a lack of time or a life situation, such people may benefit from my help to reorganize your life.
Professional organizers know all the latest products and processes that will make organizing easier, which gives you access to many resources and ideas that you wouldn’t have time to try or research on your own. Organizing is more than just tidying up and getting rid of items, as a professional organizer helps to find out why you have to do this and provides long term solutions to adjust your habits and environment.

Why pay a professional home organizer when I can get a house cleaner?

A house cleaner simply tidies and cleans your home. House cleaners make money by coming back to your home to clean your house or office by rearranging the clutter constantly. They don’t find the source of the issue, which happens to be disorganization. Just Organized by Taya will give you a professional service where we come to your home, work our magic and then provide you with a sense of living that will last months, years, or longer without having to use my services constantly. Our goal is to set you up for long term success, which is done through communication and experience. You can learn to live clutter free and even have more control over your environment again.

I want to do on it my own, so why can’t I organize everything myself?

You have read every single book on organization, watched the shows, and you have a vision to get rid of your mess or clean out your closet and become clutter free. You don’t feel like you should hire any help as you are able to do it on your own. Sound familiar? So, why haven’t you accomplished your goal yet? Chances are you don’t have the motivation, the know-how, and accountability. When you are completely honest with yourself, you will be able to organize. What room do you need to start on? Where does everything go? What system works best for your space? Get the help that you need to become organized and begin freeing yourself from the clutter.

Fees & Services

Every customer is given a competitive rate. Just Organized by Taya charges by the hour and each project and client is different. Most pricing depends on the type of work and how much you are willing or even able to do. Each customer has their own set of wants and needs and the best savings are usually on package deals.
When you consider the price of organizing services, be sure to consider the other costs such as energy and time, purchasing other items, and the negative impact from disorganization stress.
I will establish my fees in a manner which does not involve collusion with a competitor, and I will communicate my fee and expense structure to my clients in advance of beginning the provision of professional organizing services.
I will only recommend products and/or services that my clients need or desire.

How long does it take?

Every project is different. It depends on the size of the project and how much you will do yourself and how quickly you can make choices. The minimum session is 4 hours. Although there are no quick fixes, you will see progress every session.
Estimates- Based on our experiences – Please understand that your space may take more or less time depending on how many items need are to be organized
Pantries -Typically 1-3 hrs
Kitchen – Typically 5 hrs
Bathroom- Typically 1-3 hrs
Closets- Typically 3- 6 hrs
Garage Typically 4-7 hrs
Bachelors ( One Bedroom, Bathroom, and Closet )- Typically 4.5hrs+
For multiple rooms and bigger projects we recommend a 20-hour package, which has the lowest rate.

Do I have to be there for the session?

You can be as hands-on or hands-off as you want. It is recommended that you be there. We will work with you through the whole process and find the right solution for you. Different systems work for different people and the only time that is best for you to be there is during the sorting sessions because we need to know what you want to keep and get rid of. Once you have approved the layout or design, we can work on implementing the plan.

What should I expect during a assessment?

Assessments last around an hour, depending on your situation. During the assessment, you will be asked some questions to find out what your challenges are, your goals, and to get a sense of your style.

Will you throw everything away?

NO! The final decision is down to you. However, we will make observations and ask the right questions in order to help you pick what is and isn’t important to keep. Many choose to donate items that are still in good condition, and we can help with that too.

What if I don’t have time to shop for what I need to get organized?

Not a problem; for a small fee, we will shop for you.

What is the Organizing Process?

During the whole process, you will be respected and treated with kindness, courtesy, and complete confidentiality.
You are in charge of deciding whether you would like to be there for the session(s). If we work together you will not only get a more functional space, but also a new set of skills for organizing that you can use for the rest of your life. We understand that some of our clients are simply too busy, so we’ll gladly organize your space for you as well.
We will provide a free phone assessment prior to your first appointment in order to start planning before we meet. During the first session, we will tour your home and talk about what is and isn’t working.
We will then begin the organization process by working on a small area of your home based on your priorities and goals. We may recommend organizational products that will help maximize your space, but we try to repurpose items that you already have in your home as much as possible.

During and between every session, we will provide:

Appointment(s) that are scheduled to fit your calendar.
Complete confidentiality.
Open discussion about the extent of services and the cost.
Physical assistance, as well as verbal instruction during the process.
Care and respect when handling your items.
Customized organization strategies by a professional organizer who will fit you and help to increase your chances of staying organized.

Coaching through the mental and emotional blocks that are causing disorganization and clutter.
Non-judgmental encouragement and guidance to help you let go of the unwanted or excess items, and giving your permission to not let go of what you want to keep, for whatever reason.
An absolute willingness to get dirty in order to achieve your determined goals.
A dramatic and immediate visual improvement in your surroundings.
Redesign and redecorating of space where needed.
Assistance in finding other professional resources where needed.

I’m embarrassed to have you see my area.

You aren’t alone. Most people feel the same way. This is a sensitive issue for many people that we work with. We don’t look at your space with a critical or even judgmental eye. We are great at making this process as comfortable and easy as possible for every client. We also sign a confidentiality agreement with you so you know that your privacy is important.

Why Choose a Home Stager? Take The Guesswork Out of Selling Your Home!
There is never a second chance to make a first impression. Buyers will typically only take 15 seconds to make a decision regarding your property.
Why leave that first impression to chance?
Home staging can add up to 20% of your home’s value.
Empty rooms appear smaller than they really are
Without a frame of reference, it’s incredibly difficult to tell the scale and size of a room
Vacant houses and apartments appear soulless and no emotional attachment is felt when the buyer walks into a room
Small defects will stand out because the buyer will have nothing else to look at
Buyers think the owner is “desperate to sell so they don’t have to carry two mortgage payments, taxes, utilities, etc.”

Does Home Staging Work?

RESA studied 174 homes previously on the market on average 156 days before the homeowners gave up trying to sell on their own and called in a professional home stager. Those same homes were staged, re-listed and sold in an average of 42 days after staging. This is 73% less time on the market.

Ten Best Reasons to Proficiently Stage Your Home:

1. Quicker sales time. Over 93 percent of homes that are staged sell in one month or less on the average, compared to the markets national average of 161 days!
2. Increased sales price – Homes that are staged sell for an average of 7 percent higher than homes that are not staged, which results to an additional $21,000 on the buying price of a $300,000 home!
3. Great listing tool
4. Discrete marketing advantage
5. Staged homes attract more buyers than unstaged homes
6. Buyers have the belief that Staged homes are maintained properly
7. Building inspectors view and also care for Staged Homes
8. Staged homes frequently receive enhanced Appraisal values
9. Professional image – Staged homes look better on websites and flyers. Almost 98 percent of prospective Buyers don’t contact a realtor before they “shop” online, which simply means that homes displayed on the MLS have to be in their top selling condition to attract a prospective buyer.
10. Gain both referrals and return buyers

Do I Really Need Staging?

Selling a home is one of the biggest decisions of your life, and failing to appropriately plan and market for it means that you could spend months or even years with your home on the market, or be forced to sell it under market value. With the Houston area seeing increased competition in the housing market as thousands of new homes are listed for sale, it has never been more crucial too make the perfect first impression.
When a potential buyer enters your home, the first impression stays with them throughout the visit, and the right impression can help lead to an offer. Many buyers look at dozens of homes before they buy, and with so many homes being looked at, it’s never been more crucial for your home to stand out of the crowd. Staging allows you to showcase your home to potential buyers in a way that enables them to visualize how it could look with their personal belongings inside.
When homes sit empty, it is often difficult for buyers to visualize how comfortable they could be living in your home. Empty homes come across as uninviting and tend to push potential buyers away instead of encouraging them to place an offer. Don’t push your buyers away, and instead show them what they’re missing by engaging the services of a dedicated home stager today!
Home stagers can also help homeowners avoid potential pitfalls, such as excessive clutter, disrepair, and general unkempt appearances. A home doesn’t have to feel cluttered to still appear cluttered to potential buyers. This implies that a home has less than adequate storage available, and can put off buyers. Additionally, unkempt appearances anywhere in a home imply that more serious issues may be lurking unseen under the surface, driving down the price. It’s easy to overlook these issues when you live in a home every day, and using the services of a professional home stager can help to address these issues before you let potential buyers slip by.
According to US News and Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, staged homes sell in half the time as non-staged homes and on average for 6.3% over list. Whether your home gets noticed online through your realtor’s website or by a buyer in person, home staging is a time tested and proven method to attract more buyers and help your home sell for more.
No one method is right for all homes, and a professional home stager can devise a comprehensive strategy to appropriately market your home to the right buyers. Whether it’s reducing the signs of children or pets to give your home a broader appeal, or just rearranging the interior furniture in a way that draws in potential buyers, a home stager is the right choice for homes entering the market, and it’s the right choice for your home.
Homeowners often ask, “Why should I stage?” But the real question is, can you afford not to? Don’t make it harder for buyers to visualize how a home could look once they’ve moved in. Professional home stagers offer a unique perspective on the interior and exterior of a home by approaching it from the viewpoint of a buyer. By focusing on the strengths and working to downplay any potential adverse aspects of your home, home stagers enable buyers to see your house as their home, and not as another stop on the home buying circuit. Your home is where your best memories were made. Allow another family to make their best memories there too, by having a professional home stager turn your home into the perfect example of a family abode for everyone.

How to Live in a Staged Home?

You have now invested in staging your property for sale. What an accomplishment! It looks beautiful and you are now ready to go on the market… but the key for a quick sale also involves keeping it staged.
It is very important that you keep your property in the same condition that your professional stager has designed. The chair that is now in a new room may not be where you imagined it, but your professional stager understands that the new placement is ideal for selling your property. The placement of your items is crucial when your house is staged. The buyers must be able to mentally move into “their” new home. Do your very best to keep the furniture arrangements as they are. If it is imperative to make a change, consult your professional stagers before making any changes. Chances are we will be able to make a change to accommodate your needs.
It is also important for everyone in the family to follow these 7 simple tips.
• Make all beds everyday
• Keep all toilet seats down
• Make sure towels are hung properly
• Make sure all crumbs are cleaned from counter tops after meals
• Turn all lights on when showing and have FM radio with light music on during showings
• Don’t leave dirty clothes on the floor and put all your belongings away
• Keep all counter top items put away
• Keep medications out of site
• Don’t cook foods with odors that will linger
Remember this is a short period of time to keep up a staged property. When the property is out of escrow take everyone out for a family outing or a congratulatory dinner. Simply buying the kids a new CD, toy or concert tickets for your teen may be just the reward they are looking for. It is important to recognize the entire family’s efforts in the process of selling your home.
