Karin's Personal Organizing services were a life saver for my wife and I.  Newly reloacted to the Cleveland area with a new job, my wife and I were overwhelmed with decisions, unpacking, and all the emotional aspects involved with relocation.  Because it was imperative for us to get our home and office in order - we realized that this was the most important and necessary task before us - but were unable to execute very well because of a small child.  At least one of us needed to be watching our child at all times - thus leaving the other to do all the work !  That is until we got online on Craig's list and found Karin.  Karin came out and was incredibly helpful.  Here is how her services helped us specifically:

Karin led the charge - my wife and I were so tired we needed some new energy.

Karin was involved - she literally unpacked boxes, carried items, sorted items, emptied trash - whatever it took.

Karin facilitated decisions making - after she helped us for 7 hours straight , I realized that one of the most valuable things she brought to the table was her ability to help my wife and I make a decision.  We were both so tired, we just needed help.  She made it easy for us to do so by asking practical questions and helped us realize what we wanted to do and what we didn't want to do.

Karin was task oriented and concerned with getting the job done - we praise her for this - she stayed until 11 pm one night to help us get our office organized and it was such a relief !

She was great with our child, concerned about our needs, and easy to work with and trustworthy.

Thank you again for your help and your time. This was very useful and I think better organization will make me better at what I do..:) 

Dina  B. (client)

Amazing job. The living room, office, laundry room and closets are so much more functional.  And staging the bathroom made such a huge difference. Unbelievable job.

Kelley T. (client)

I was never able to sit down at the dining room table before. And you can see the living room and dining room floors. The rooms are actually functional. Incredible and exhausting job. Thank you.

Diane B. (client)

Thanks for working with us...we are so happy to be clients!

I have known Karin E. Fried for many years. Recently I helped her sell her business after 17 years at the helm of her corporation. Over 17 years, Karin worked diligently to build business and personal relationships with representatives from numerous area hospitals, most notably the Cleveland Clinic. Her ability to respond to various client issues, in a timely and efficient manner led to high client loyalty. I have thoroughly enjoed working with Karin and do not hesitate to vouch for her in any respect.

Brett W.  (lawyer - known 4 years)



I have had the opportunity to engage with many different business owners throughout the country. Karin has been a very valuable source of information, both professionally and personally.  Her reputation in the industry has been nothing less than superior. Karin's expertise and knowledge has  been very helpful on many occassions when the need to brainstorm became necessary. Karin's honesty and integrity was proof in the manner in which she worked.  It is without hesitation that I would recommend Karin to anyone looking for a hardworking, reliable, dependable, ethical and honest individual.

Angie G.  (business owner - known 17 years).

Karin E. Fried was member of our national network for over 10 years. She is a Certified Personnel Consultant and ran her business very well.  If you are looking for someone with experience, hands-on-experience and who is dependable, loyal and a hard-working individual, Karin is it.

Elaine R.  (president of national network - known 10 years).

It is my pleasure to endorse Karin as a business associate. Her dedication to her company, employees and customers is unparalleled.  With her 17 years in business I can attest to her high energy level, drive for perfection and ability to create solutions in an ever changing world.

Nancy M.  (Director - Staffing Program - known 5 years)


Karin is one of the most disciplined and punctual people I've ever known. Her ability to work efficiently under stressful conditions and nerve-wrecking deadlines speaks volumes about her hard work, determination and composed demeanor.  I think she is a deserving candidate for any project or job you may have.  I strongly recommend Karin.
