Testimonials

"Bob, after the death of my mother I felt completely overwhelmed so I hired you to organize my life and reduce my stress. I now have a system in place that is very functional and productive. You were not only helpful in your organizational skills, you were also a calming influence and a delight to work with."

--- Judy Rosenberg, Ph.D., psychologist, Encino, CA


"Bob Farkas and I have been working to tackle my clutter and he is, by far, the most patient person with whom I have had the pleasure of working. In truth, what started as just trying to get my stuff organized, has turned into a long-term commitment by Bob to help me in many areas of my life. I consider him as much of a life coach as a professional organizer. And, after my move to Chicago, Bob was very easily able to translate our weekly in-person, hands-on, sessions into telephone consultations that keep me focused and on track."

--- Leslie Allen, graduate student, Chicago, IL

 


 

"Bob has been so careful and caring and patient and calm as he's guided me through the collected treasures and rubble of my life. With his gentle guidance I've had the courage to trash and purge all the junk that has gotten in the way of having a real home."

---Jae Weiss, therapist and domestic violemce educator, Santa Clarita, CA

 


 

"Bob Farkas, you are an eager worker, full of great organizing ideas. Organizing our garage was just the beginning. You truly facilitated the switching of my son's room with our home office by creating a layout for our office furniture. Wow! Our family and friends are still amazed that all our furniture fits into our new, much smaller space. And just recently you helped me rearrange the furniture in my son's bedroom to make more room for our new baby. Thanks. You are very open to suggestions and easy to work with. What a blessing."

--- Deborah Hurewitz-Pitt, artist, Los Angeles, CA

 


 

"Bob, I cannot thank you enough for helping me out of the chaos of a living room, an office, a bedroom...an entire new apartment full of unpacked boxes staring me challengingly in the face. Without your help and cheerful persistence, I would never have met that challenge nearly as swiftly or as well. Now I can relax in my living room, cook in my kitchen, sleep...well you get the idea. Thank you so much for turning my apartment of boxes into a home I love."

"Bob, you've created a monster! Our last organizing session was exhausting but invigorating at the same time. I was up until 1:30am and while I couldn't sleep I went through more stuff and pitched another garbage bag full of things. Then I neatly organized my internship logs and letters of recommendation from medical school. They are now safely stored in my medical office, on the shelf, labeled on the spine so I can find them when I need them. You are a great motivator. Thank you for giving me hope of a future free of clutter."

--- Linda Crawford. D.O., physician, Pasadena, CA

--- Jack Rafferty, communication consultant, Los Angeles, CA

 


 

"The massive towers of paper that had accumulated in my work space were very intimidating: As soon as I organized one pile, two more would replace it. A man of unimaginable patience, Bob helped me to design a place for everything and to toss what should have been tossed long ago. With him at my side (literally), I was able to do in hours what I hadn't been able to do for years -- regain control over the chaos. No task was too small, no mess too challenging. Many people resist the idea of hiring someone, saying, "I SHOULD be able to get organized by myself." But they don't, if only because there's no one holding them accountable. Bob is full of the good ideas (hardly any of which cost money) that only experience can bring, and he eggs you on to make sure the job gets done."
