The Perfect Gift –  Give the Gift of Time


Kerry On: A Gift Certificate

Rusty G. gave his best friend “Me” as a housewarming present.
Well, he actually he gave her three hours of my time/talent
for packing, downsizing, donating  and preparing before the movers were to arrive.

Moving Experiences?

Janet T. was moving from a huge loft South of Market to a much smaller space in Laurel Village.
In preparation to sell her condo she needed to get things wrapped, packed, labeled, and staged and ready to put on the market.
In tandem, we packed up three vast closets and the pantry which was filled with copious cooking utensils – it was like a mini Williams-Sonoma store.

Janet T promptly saw the advantage of teamwork and my organizing skills and signed up for an additional five hours.

Mission accomplished!photo-dishes

Kerry On: I’ve shopped, shipped, wrapped, recycled, delivered, deciphered, trained, hired and fired.

My clients request myriad tasks: I’ve picked up laundry, groceries, documents, meals, organized complicated Expense Reports and researched Car Insurance for a busy Executive.

I’ve delivered documents to City Hall and hired a Property Manger in Chicago.
I’ve arranged, assembled, shred, and sorted. Closets, cupboards, garages and drawers – are all in my repertoire.
I don’t do windows, I don’t do floors – but I know who to hire to do get things done.

Too busy for words? Kerry on – help in your home and office

person-connecting-and-sharing-using-social-media-networks

John K, a busy executive, works from home.

He used to call his office the “The Everglades – because he was swamped.”

On our first meeting, we walked through his home and he pointed out his  “Top 10: this drives me crazy” areas and highlighted potential projects. His closets really stumped him – he had no idea how to organize slacks, jeans, khakis, and hiking pants.

mens-shoes-875947__180We met a week later, I came with 3 dozen, slim-line, felt hangers and attacked his closets. Within hours, his shirts were organized by style, color and season. All pants hung properly and organized by style, color and category. 

jeans-428614__180

We went from Chaos to Order

He identified various items to be “donated,” -I inventoried all items for tax purposes, dropped donations off and submitted the receipt to John.

  1. Monday: the linen closet and cupboards.

2. Tuesday:  John has an itemized Christmas shopping list and LPH on Sacramento St is the best shipper in San Francisco.

More: Yelp Reviews – Kerry on Personal Assistant

pen-581881__180Kerry On ~ More Yelp Reviews ~ hidden in the Yelp Basement

Michael R. Brisbane, CA Writes:

Kerry On was very professional, patient, and nonjudgmental toward what could have been a pretty humiliating experience.

I have been using my living & dining room as a office space and the clutter was just getting too much. Every time I tried to organize it myself, it was just a hassle. She easily and patiently helped me organize my living room and dining room areas in less than 3 hours.

I can now again entertain in my home. I have my entire upstairs area free from clutter. I can actually see the top of my office desk area. I really enjoy my new environment . I am now officially de-cluttered, at least for this month.

In years past, I entertained a lot and my kitchen / dining area was small and intimate. Kerry On’s expertise helped me get organized and “zoned” my kitchen so I prep, cook and and enjoy my guests without colliding.

I would highly recommend all of her organizing services.

PS: I can’t wait to start my next project, the “Lost Guest Bedroom”.

I asked a young, hip, client if he “Yelped”

and his lightening quick response was

“Only if I  am pinched!”

7/31/2013
We moved and used Kerry On services in the weeks before the big day to organize, pack purge, and bring sanity to our lives. She is energetic, honest and dependable. Now, when we travel she collects our mail, stocks our refrigerator, feeds the birds, and brings in the newspapers.
We use her to interface with our computer guru.. and oversee workmen –
We run a small business from home and she assists us in errands, mailings, phone calls.
