“Meeting and hiring Linda was one of the best things that happened to my home. She organized every room as well as my photographs from three generations of family. As a bonus, she is great to work with, making otherwise tedious chores, fun. I would not hesitate to recommend her services to anyone.”

Merle Simon, Bannockburn

“I wish we owned a tiny Linda Goldman we could take out of the closet — from a shelf she would have neatly arranged for the purpose — and switch her on whenever we need her. She has totally changed the way we live. We now have places for all our stuff and so much less stuff! She helped us throw out years of things we didn’t need and arrange and protect years of things we did need but often couldn’t find. She is warm, thoughtful, empathetic and always smiling. She doesn’t take over; she helps you do what you want done in a manner that suits you.”

Dr. Jeffrey Stern, Riverwoods

“I am organized! With Linda’s help everything has a place and there is a place for everything. She is an expert and surrounds herself with other professionals to help shred, appraise and sell what doesn’t fit into your plan. I am organized!”

“Linda, I l feel that you were one of the best things that I ever did for myself. You were such a positive, non-judgmental, and regulating presence. I was not able to get my act together on my own, and you helped me to move on in so many ways. I felt empowered and able to focus on other things because the mess was cleared. It’s hard to explain how grateful I felt, and also smart. for recognizing the need and taking care of myself and my family. I am proud that I chose the best possible person, and will forever value your talent and expertise”

Lisa, Highwood

“Thanks Linda My husband was absolutely floored when he saw the storage room. I could hear his exclamation “Oh my GOSH!” all the way upstairs. My son came running in and asked what happened and I heard my husband say “Look at all the space in here! ” My mom came today and said it was the prettiest thing she has seen – other than the Christmas tree. Thank you SO MUCH! Sometimes I just go down and turn on the light and look in there. It’s just the greatest feeling.”

KG, Wilmette

“I first hired Linda to help me organize my moms apartment.
See, I live in NY and my Mom lives in Chicago, making it very difficult for me to organize her. Anyway, her apartment was a mess and I was at my wits end trying to figure what to do or where to start. It was so overwhelming, that I felt paralyzed. Linda came in and without my help, took over. She was amazing!! She had everything organized in a few short hours.
So when it was time for my mom to move, of course I called Linda. She came in and packed, arranged for several items to be picked up for donations, arranged for garbage to be picked up and disposed of, and brought several items into a resale shop for us. She made every single step of the way painless. I couldn’t recommend Linda any more if I tried. She’s one of a kind!”

“Moving parents in their 90’s from a house they have lived in for 50 years was a daunting task. The house was full of so many memories, mementos and stuff, the task seemed almost insurmountable.

Mom needed to sort, donate, dispose and pack for a new home and we also had to prepare the house for showings and for a house sale. Egads! As mom became aware of the enormity of the challenge, the more overwhelmed she started to become. It was creating a great deal of anxiety until your team arrived on the scene.

I was impressed by so many things you did, but perhaps the one thing that impressed me the most was your kindness, patience and understanding of the emotional upheaval such a move entails. You treated mom with the utmost respect and so gently handled all those tough decisions. You never lost your patience, rushed her or forced her to make a decision. She so enjoyed working with you that I think she was sorry when the work was done!

Your professionalism and skill combined with your sensitivity to the situation made such a big difference. We couldn’t ask for anything more. The move out was very successful as well as the move in. We could not have done it without you. Many thanks to you and your team.”

D.Stefan, Chicago

“Altogether Organized, Linda Goldman, provides an outstanding organizational service. She is single-minded about producing a clean, productive and efficient space with incredible grace and good humor. I can’t imagine how all that happiness translates into such effective work, but it does. Working with Linda feels like a gift to myself. Beautiful order is restored and systems put in place that can be repeated in the future. It was the best value for my money that I have received in a long time! Working with Linda was a great experience and I highly recommend her.”

“Thank you for being great to work with, allowing me to show my insecurites and shame, and at the same time, not making me feel judged. On top of that, having a great sense of humor and being fun to talk with while we work. I can’t believe that this time last year, I was just planning to get started and now we’ve done so much to get this place in order! Looking forward to getting it finished in 2016. Thank you!!

“I hired Linda after a kitchen remodel left me with about 30% less cabinet space than I had in my original kitchen. I was under time pressure and I was staring at boxes and boxes of kitchen items that I couldn’t find a home for. Linda was responsive and was able to squeeze me into her schedule to accommodate my time constraints. In just a couple of hours, Linda worked her magic and she rearranged and reorganized so that the right things were in the exact right places and I had room for everything! I would turn around and all of a sudden Linda would have an empty drawer to put more things in – I still can’t figure out how she did that! I am so thankful for Linda’s help every day – I love my new kitchen and feel incredibly organized and everything is right where I need when I need it! Not only is Linda efficient and great at what she does – she also has a great personality and it was a pleasure to spend time with her – we had a great time working on a project that I had dreaded for months. I highly recommend Linda!”
