[From Anne] My husband and I combined three residences into our current home. Semi-chaos reigned for longer than I care to mention, until Sono came to our rescue. What had been to us a task impossible to contemplate because of a basement so packed to the gills with stuff that finding things was a day-long effort, was to Sono just a challenge to be met and conquered in a series of organized, task-oriented weekends. She came up with an itemized plan and followed it to the letter, taking each piece of the job as a small chunk, devouring it and moving on to the next.
Although there are still some things to go through and make decisions about, (more photographs, more books, etc.) the amazing difference we felt when looking at the prospect of a house full of guests for Christmas, was incredible. No feeling of panic that things wouldn’t get organized in time for all the guests, that we wouldn’t be able to find all the towels and bedding, the turkey roaster, the Christmas lights, etc…. No, all the linens were where they were supposed to be; all the bedrooms were set up with beds unencumbered by boxes; there was space to pull out the pull-out couches; the living room had end tables for every drink; overflow pots, pans and holiday decorations were waiting on accessible shelves, marked and ready to be used; and family photographs were on the wall up the stairs to make everyone feel at home.
What a difference!
I thank you Sono for every patient, tactful minute of the time you spent, every day when I come home.
[From Antonio] When we engaged Sono to basically reorganize decades of “stuff” and move through it to a more livable and personal home, we were immediately struck by several things – she was straightforward, clear and well-organized in her approach, sensitive to the nuances of such intimate, personal work, adept at striking a balance between being diligent and giving us distance and space between visits, staying on task, and always doing more than what we expected of her.
In short, a total professional and a caring human being. How can you ask for more?
