2017 My Top 5 “Best Customer Service” Kerry On

photo_380_20051108

 If you are like me, Customer Service is of the utmost importance.

This month, I worked with Five Super/Stellar Suppliers who have very high standards and went beyond the call of duty. I am a fan.

My  Top Five Favorite Suppliers:

1,).  1-800-Got- Junk One of my favorite phone calls to make for a client. Whether the client is moving from their home of 50 years or 5 years- there is generally a lot of rubbish, litter, debris and junk to deal with. The 1-8oo-Got Junk Phone Team is so well-trained, patient and results oriented –  it is a pleasure to speak with them. There are no “Dumb or Inane Questions.” What there is are solutions and a team to come pick up said debris and whisk it way. Gold Stars for Customer Service.

2,)   Aby’s Upholstery – Two different San Jose clients needed furniture re-upholstered. I looked at the usual suspects and was unimpressed.  Then, I  found Aby’s Upholstery. An owner/operator, Santa Clara University grad, she was smart, polite and professional on the phone. She has a ton of Five-Star Yelp reviews – for very good reason.

  • We met with her, selected the fabric and were “wowed” by her insights and ideas. Her team is quick, gracious and helpful.  Both clients were ‘Over the moon’ impressed.     A locally owned retailer providing residential, commercial & automotive upholstery & repair services.   Address: 1610 Monterey Hwy, San Jose, CA 95112 (408) 289-88872
  • drawers200601093.) Fresh Air Janitorial – Serving San Francisco Bay Area -Alicia and her team cleaned a vast home which was recently sold. My clients wanted their home to be impeccable for the new owners. As a result of Fresh Air Janitorial -the house sparkles! I have never seen such attention to detail. They are high level cleaning professionals. As a rule, I seek out top of the line suppliers for my clients. Alicia is on my Top 5 List. Great rates. (650) 355-5158
  • unnamed
  • 4.).  Mulugani Tires in Mill Valley Clients have me take cars in for service / new tires and I never hesitate to suggest Mulugani Tires in Marin. A family-owned business and has been around for 68 years; the staff is polite, calm, friendly and professional. It is the polar  opposite ever other tire center I have ever visited. Promotions and discounts and superb service.
  • Spelling Game tiles spell out Help Me
  • 5,)    Auto 280 – 1315 Ocean Ave, San Francisco (415) 333-8622:
  • Volvos Only. I have been a huge fan of Gary and Auto 280 for decades. He is very smart, cordial, and Cost Effective. He has been in business for over 30 years and is the best Volvo Specialist there is. He is also a great guy.lifesaver-933560__

De Cluttering Options 101



Cleaning Up Your Act

Tried and True? De Cluttering Styles Vary

One man’s treasure…

Mary lives in a beautiful, older home in Burlingame with no closets. She has three tiny, slivers, posing as closets. She’s very cleverly created a walk-in closet the garage- which is, now, too far and too many stairs from her bedroom. Every year, we work to downsize clothes, shoes, and accessories. She is a Buckeye Girl and likes the Ohio Rule form of de-cluttering.

The OHIO Rule “Only Handle It Once”

A Classic De-cluttering Technique, good for halting the flow of things coming into your home: junk mail, trinkets, used Amazon boxes, bags, magazines… the OHIO mantra helps sort out challenges – deciding if you’ll keep, sell, donate, or toss. 

Tiny Problems

We all know – in our hearts of hearts- you shouldn’t buy or keep more miscellanea than your current home will accommodate. This means putting the brakes on shopping when your closets and shelves are packed to the max. Smart shoppers in small spaces often donate one item if they buy one new item.

The One-Year Query

If you haven’t worn that shirt, skirt, sweater, Go-Go Boots or Halloween costume in over a year: It is time to toss, donate, purge… Of course, we all hold on to various items for sentimental reasons. Sure, but within reason. It’s one thing to keep a dozen of your kid’s favorite books – but you’re wasting space keeping bags and old magazines and books in the basement.

 

“Getting things straight in your head is a major achievement because there’s so much clutter out there. You’ve got to push aside the static to really hear the music.”

Steve Wynn

Kitchen Cupboard Wisdom…organizing – Kerry On


 Are you duplicating your efforts?

It is Time to Kerry On

Janet K.  just needed a second set of hands and a discerning eye – her kitchen cupboards were over flowing with duplicates and triplicates of everything.

You don’t want to know the count and the amount of Tupperware pieces floating in drawers, cupboards, shelves.

Choose One: Sort, Organize, Toss, Donate,

First, we tackled drawers of  pots and pans and instantly realized a family of three doesn’t need 6 fry pans and 4 pasta pots.

The family  had one 10-piece set of Calphalon too many. In good time – we worked together and  sorted, organized, matched pieces and purged the remainder pieces.

Voila!  The available shelf space doubled and we hadn’t  even approached the formidable ‘Baking Supply’ drawers.

In five hours we cleaned, cleared, organized, sorted, straightened and purged and donated.

It’s a great feeling to streamline and systemize and to bring a semblance of  sanity and organization to your home.

Is it time for you to get organized? Can you imagine a neater, cleaner, more organized work space?  May I help you Kerry on?

Kerry on! You can erase, delete, purge and donate the clutter

Clutter: The GOOD NEWS –  The BAD NEWS

Sorry, there is no such thing as a Magic Wand to remove clutter…wand

The Good News:

I can help you toss, shred, organize, alphabetize, de-clutter and organize receipts, files and mild chaos.

Allow me – to assist you in de-cluttering, organizing, purging, tossing, and shredding…

Ms T.  hired me to work with her elderly parents. They had rooms and rooms filled with items that needed to be repaired, donated, thrown away, put in the proper place.

Mission Accomplished.

IMG_1826

An affable couple, June and Ward, agreed they no longer needed those 12 old jig- saw puzzles, 20 ‘0dd’ sets of playing cards, and stacks of coloring books and boxes of broken crayons for the grandkids – who were now in college.

It’s in the Bag: We filled up bags of junk to toss or recycle …and bags of toys in good shape to be donated. Next, we sorted though dozens of old movies, cassettes, and duplicate CD’s. We agreed: there are only so many Frank Sinatra ” I Did it My Way” CD’s one can listen to.

Too Much Stuff Syndrome? Like many of us – the couple had multiple bookshelves crammed with books and old magazines – in no time the books were sorted and organized -dog-eared magazines were recycled and giving the living room a great face-lift.

(Note: Boxes of very old Time Magazines and National Geograhics were put on Craigslist for free – and disappeared.)

Tillie has booked me to visit – twice a week – for the next two months. It’s a date!

We are working magic: Clutter is disappearing!

Email me – we’ll talk. Kerry On
