A lot of Sellers underestimate the time, energy and – if their objective is to garner the highest dollar – the upfront costs associated with showcasing a property for sale to its target markets. In today’s sophisticated real estate market, it’s no longer about simply tapping up a ‘For Sale’ sign and baking chocolate chip cookies. It’s about presenting a property for its unique qualities, its lifestyle benefits, and its highest potential – both practically, emotionally, and aesthetically.
Clutterfly Inc. is the creation of twin sisters, Lisa Webb (left) and Kim Diamond (right).
Together, they offer a one-stop service for organizing, decluttering, downsizing, move management, and estate clearing. We recently heard rave reviews from both realtors (who needed homes decluttered before bringing them to market for sale) and one our our clients (who needed help organizing and clearing out the home of her elderly parent). We’d like to take this opportunity to give Lisa and Kim a little appreciation love!
As Kim says: “A good Professional Organizer can relieve a LOT of stress and greatly improve the quality of your life. Think about how great it would feel if you could come home at the end of a long day and actually feel relaxed and peaceful. No nagging feelings of guilt when you look at that ugly lamp from your Aunt Edna that you feel obligated to keep. No frustration due to fruitless searches for important papers or keys. No tripping on the stairs to get over piles of “stuff” that somehow accumulated there. It’s a great feeling knowing that your life is in order and stress is under control.”
And for real estate professionals like us, Clutterfly Inc. is invaluable. Yes, there are some homes that are in need of repairs and upgrades before they can go on the market, but when a home has been loved by a family for decades, they often need to be substantially decluttered first in order to show their best selves. In fact, the first thing we tell our clients to do? Purge, purge and purge some more. Not only will de-cluttering help enhance your available space – it will also speed things up when it comes time to move! We encourage them to get rid of as much as you can (donate! donate! donate!). It’s also crucial to neutralize the space by removing anything too personal (or taste-specific). Yes, it’s important that Sellers express their personal sense of ‘home’, but remember, Buyers are not just looking for a property; they are seeking a place to lay down their own roots, express themselves, and create life-long memories. Your space must allow these Buyers to easily envision themselves living there, which includes creating a neutral canvas that they can easily see as their own.
How great would it be to have help from poeple like Kim and Lisa to facilitate this process?
Here are some nifty before and after shots:
Whether you are overrun with ‘stuff’, or overwhelmed with the prospect of downsizing or moving, or preparing to sell, Clutterfly can help you through this turbulent time by providing a calm, convenient, personalized service.
“You are the Best!”
Working with Kim and Lisa in getting rid my clutter has been the best experience for me. They worked so hard and now my place looks lovely. I feel great! Before this process I was so stressed and now feel happy and have a great deal of energy. Thank you so much! You are the Best! I look forward to working with you again!
“Positive, energetic professionals”
The ladies are positive, energetic professionals who can take a project from planning and estimation to completion with no disruption to the client. They began with an untidy, disorganized office and revealed to me a calm, beautiful room in which it is a pleasure to work. They took my colour preferences and personal requirements into consideration while creating sleek and functional work space. Everything from purchasing to furniture assembly and placement of my files was carried out in a timely fashion with care and sensitivity. This company and these talented women would be an asset to any downsizing, decluttering or staging assignment.

“I am their number 1 fan”
I am real estate agent and my client was in desperate need of help with getting her house in selling condition. The house had been neglected for a long time. I came across [Kim’s company] when doing a search for decluttering and organizing and referred them to my client. It was the best thing I ever did and now I am their number 1 fan! They worked very hard to declutter, organize, sort, clean, paint, landscape, stage and got the property ready to sell. It was a difference from night to day! Could not even recognize the house after they were done. And after 10 days, it was SOLD! Great job!
