I am the sales manager for Ocean House senior living. It's my job to help enrich the lives of older adult that move into our community. Often times the older adults have to downsize from a large home into a studio or a one bedroom which in the past would put a lot of stress on our residents and families not knowing what to do, what to bring and what to get rid of and most importantly making sure all of their sentimental valuables arrive in one peace. Until Cori and her incredible and enthusiastic team came into my life. I have recommended multiple family members to Simplify home LA and Cori and her team went above and beyond to take all the stress of moving off of our residents shoulders and have made the transition of moving as smooth as possible. Cori and her team makes sure that the apartment is beautifully decorated with all of our residents personal belongs prior to moving in. Therefor, as soon as our new residents open the door to their apartment they will feel right at home. Not having to worry about unpacking so they can enjoy the fulfilling lifestyle we offer all our residents from the moment they walk through our doors. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!!

If you’re looking for happy people in your home helping you in one of the most stressful times of your life, look no further. The ladies of Simplify & Move helped my family of four move into our beautiful new home. They spent three days with us and unpacked all of our belongings. Not only were our things highly and logically organized, they were also beautifully placed, thoughtfully labeled, and I couldn’t have been happier. They took so much stress out of one of the most stressful things a person lives through. Thank you so much Cori and your whole team for making our home a home in record time. Highly recommend this service.

The Simplify and Move team made what seemed like an insurmountable job feel effortless on my end. My family and I were dreading having to finally address two storage units that we had for 13 years! Then Simplify and Move stepped in and made it all so easy (and surprisingly enjoyable). Sharon, Jacqueline and Karen were incredible - they helped us sort through and organize years and years worth of belongings, taking the reigns on logistics and organizing, while having such patience and compassion while we reminisced on all those memories. Without me having to worry or lift a finger, they miraculously coordinated two donation trucks, a shredding service, a trash pick up AND a moving company all in TWO DAYS. By the end of the experience, the ladies felt like family and we are immensely grateful for all of their extremely hard work and support.If you feel overwhelmed by the job ahead and are looking for an incredible team to make EASY and enjoyable - you've found the right people!

The team that I worked with had unlimited energy and were very professional. They definitely helped me get my garage and new home more organized than I would have on my own and in just a few days. If you have the money to spend and the desire to get organized, these are the ones to use!

Cori and her team are simply the best. Cori came over to assess the work after a long day organizing others. She quoted me and a few days later I hired them. Best money I ever spent. My closet, my drawers, my office have never been so organized. They also help me dispose and donate clothing, books, shoes, CD's and DVD...I feel a huge weight has been lifted and I could not have done it with out them.A fan for ever!

The Simplify and Move team is the absolute best!! Hands down the best money we spent for our hectic move, especially having a toddler! The team is so incredible, detail oriented, professional, friendly, fun, smart, organized (they better be right?), and so much more. They made our lives so easy and I would recommend them to anyone and everyone!!

I honestly do not have enough wonderful things to say about Cori and her team. They were extremely communicative, organized and professional. We fully trusted them with the keys to our new home and felt as though the treated our home as if it was their own. Cori has such a positive and "can do" attitude that is infectious. The team helped us unpack into our new home and put every single item in its correct place. I absolutely love the organization systems she came up with for us. From the medicine drawer to the fridge and even my little girl's closet - no detail was left untouched! She is a wonder-woman!

My dad’s challenges with getting older started to accelerate and there was a need to move him into a community setting in a short amount of time. Simplify and Move was able to organize and mobilize a quick and efficient transition for my dad in his difficult time. They evaluated the space he was moving into, met with us to understand what items were important, and created with space planning that felt like a set decorated movie set that captured all the emotional elements that re-created the emotional feeling of his previous home with the goal of making the new space feel familiar. By far it was the best value and worth every penny!

Simplify+ Move LA was just that except I did not move. Cori and Sharon came for a full day and redid my kitchen. It was hard to believe how much stuff I had accumulated over 18 years in my kitchen, because we threw out half a dumpster full of stuff and donated 6 boxes worth of stuff. The best thing was when I woke up the next morning and came downstairs it was like some elves came in and rearranged my whole kitchen TO BE FUNCTIONAL FOR ME! To start, Cori suggested a shelving unit be installed to create extra space, as my kitchen is small. All the huge appliances I have like my air fryer and slow cooker now live in this shelving unit, with all my alcohol, as before my kitchen counters were COVERED. Now they are CLEAR (who knew what my counters looked like before??!!) I have new drawer dividers- and everything has a place!! Containers and lots of Lazy Susan’s- a job well done!! This definitely changed my life (I LOVE TO COOK!) and I’m gonna have them back to do my entire house. I’m hooked! I think they should rename their company to SIMPLY THE BEST💪💪💪. Worth every penny!!David B.

I would give 10 stars, if you let me. Cori helped make my mother’s move into senior living happen. It was an emotional experience full of many tough decisions, hard work, time, attention and Cori was a guiding force. The best part was the “ta da” moment went we arrived at Mom’s new place —- it was all unpacked, ready and looked like home —- beyond expectation.

I have 3 words for Cori and Sharon: ANGELS FROM HEAVEN. Moving my dad to assisted living was so emotional for me. These ladies waltzed in like fairy godmothers and made the entire process a million times easier for me. Couldn’t have done this without them. We laughed and cried together. They both completely understood what I was going through. His new place is breathtaking and everything fits perfectly thanks to their expert planning. He couldn’t be happier. I will never forget these incredible women and the peace of mind they gave me during the entire process.

If you are looking for someone to organize any space of yours, I highly recommend you hire this amazing team that is clearly the best in the business! Thank you Cori, Sharon and Natalie!

We had just moved from a large suburban house to a townhouse in Brentwood. While we did donate and sell a lot of furniture and stuff we didn’t need, we were still overwhelmed by boxes and more boxes that had been kept at a separate storage unit.Cori’s team of highly professional ladies came to help us unpack and organize everything and saved us from drowning in our boxes. Cori even went to Costco to pick out the ideal shelves and containers for us and delivered them herself.Although her service is definitely at the high end of the organizing and unpacking service, it was worth it. Our only regret is that we wish we had used her services before we started our move!

Cori & the Simplify + Move team helped us organize & execute a complicated move from NoCal to SoCal — and made the difficult process of moving an aging parent into assisted living much easier and more graceful. Cori’s mover and handyman recommendations were fantastic; and her team set up the new apartment with care and consideration. We’re all thrilled with the resulting space and we didn’t have to unpack anything ourselves, which allowed us to spend quality time together during this transition. Highly recommend.

Amazing work. I thought it would take a week to clear up my storage space, but it only took 1 day! They arrived promptly and worked efficiently all day. They even finished an hour earlier than expected. It was so painless that I don’t know why I didn’t do it sooner. I highly recommend them!!!

Words cannot express how grateful I am to Cori and her team at Simplify Move LA! My family and I are doing a major remodel on our home and had to move to a rental house for 10 months. The thought of moving twice and the stress of construction was really weighing heavily on me. Not only did Cori and her team take all that stress away, but also they literally changed our lives. Cori, Karen, Sharon, Jacqueline and Natalie were like mama bears. They created calm in a chaotic move. Never in my life have I known every single item I have in my house, but also where every item is and know that each item now has a place. They also went through our office which was filled to the ceiling with stuff. By the time we moved out of our home we had filled bags with donations and trash. I felt lighter and it was such a relief. We also were fully moved into our rental home within 3 days of moving! Our friends and family couldn’t believe that everything was unpacked, organized, down to even having our pictures hung on the walls. Thank you again Cori, Karen, Sharon, Jacqueline and Natalie! We couldn’t have done this move without you! We can’t wait to see you guys again when we move back to our home! Many thanks, Lindsay, Adam, Emma and Brody!

Simplify and Move LA is awesome! I hired them during a stressful time and Cori and her team handled everything from A-Z. I didn’t have to worry about a thing. From measuring details at the new residence to determining which furniture to move, packing up old place and unpacking at new place, coordinating furniture to be donated for pickup, she made it an easy process. I highly recommend this company for a stress- free move! P.S. Karen is amazing and very organized.

Cori and her team were the perfect choice for us. At90 & 93 years old we moved my parents from their house to my house. Having to downsize which wasstressful enough for my mother, Cori made the experience for her and all of us easy and smooth. From the packing to unpacking, then emptying the house she coordinated everything. My parents were not only moved in but the pictures were hung and everything was put away before they left. I can’t stress enough the wonderful, caring, attention to detail service we received. Thank you Cori and Karen! It would have been a nightmare without you!

Cori was nothing but amazing. Her team is top notch. Moving my elderly father into a retirement/nursing home was a hard choice for my mom and I. Cori provided so much support that my mom was able to get through this emotional move in such a cared for way. Logistically, emotionally, communication wise, process, ease, from start to finish was beyond what I could hope for. She really gets it. I give her my highest compliments and recommendations.

Cori and her crew, Karen, Deborah and Stella were fabulous! They moved my elderly mother on short notice and recreated her old apartment in her new apartment, including placing about 100 little figurines in 2 curio cabinets exactly as they were. AMAZING!! A pleasure to work with. Got the job done on time and took what could have been very stressful and made it very easy. Definitely would recommend them and would use them again!

Cori and her team really saved us in a very stressful situation. My 92 year old mother needed to move from Skilled Nursing into Assisted Living. There was a lot of confusion during the Pandemic with facilities being locked down. Cori was very understanding and she and her team (call out to Karen) did a fantastic job of collaborating on a plan and moving my moms home from one location to another. Everything was setup with care and a lot of thought. Using Simplify and Move took a lot of the pressure and stress off of us. We highly recommend !Thanks Guys,Chris

I hired Simplify and Move when we moved my mother from her home into assisted living. This time can be very stressful for the family, but having Cori and her team to handle the overwhelming task of sorting through, packing, selling and moving a lifetime’s worth belongings was such a relief. I live out of state and it would literally have been impossible for me to complete the task in any reasonable time frame and certainly not with her skill or efficiency. I highly recommend Simplify and Move!! Thank you, Cori.

Cori's not good, she's GREAT. Totally responsive, she jumped right into a situation and did an absolutely terrific, top-notch job. She cares about what she does and has genuine sympathy for clients and the emotions associated with moving. She has resources, goes the extra mile and takes pride in her work both in terms of executing the nuts and bolts of the job but also in terms of aesthetics and design sensibility. She's the full package for moving, organizing or whatever service you need her for. She went above and beyond, worked late and communicated extremely well with all parties in the style they needed, a quality that cannot be overestimated and makes the whole thing go as smoothly as possible

They stayed late to ensure my closet could get put back together, and I really appreciate their dedication. Thank you for all your help.

Cori and her team were absolutely amazing! They worked very professionally and carefully and went out of their way, in helping an elderly relative clean out a house and move into senior living. Their warm and caring approach in going through a life of materials to downsize and enable our relative to feel comfortable to move was a lifesaver to us. They even set up the relative's apartment at assisted living so that when the relative moved in it was seamless and reduced the anxiety and stress normally associated with the move. Cori was highly responsive to any questions and was in contact with us at every point of the downsizing and move. We would highly recommend Simplify and Move and Cori and her team for any and all downsizing and moving. We consider Cori a wonderful friend and resource in LA now even as our relative settles in.

Cori and her team are the best! They are emotional and physical life savers!Earlier in the year I had moved my mom into her small, but lovely, senior apartment. There were boxes and furniture piled and stacked from floor to ceiling which my mom had wanted to unpack and go through herself. Fast forward to six months later...and zero progress. I realized this was a job too big for either of us, so I reached out to Cori to see what she could do.To my (our) amazement, Cori and her team swooped in with a plan. Not only were they super organized and efficient, they were friendly, communicated well and maintained the morale in what could have been a highly stressful process.The end result was a cleared out apartment with just a meaningful handful of organized boxes of items my mom had decided she needed, much more manageable for my mom.Cori and her team made my mom's new future look brighter. There is no way we could have done what Simplify and Move LA accomplished in just one day!Much thanks and appreciation to Cori snd her team!

edit: because I live across the world, it took my stuff a while to arrive. when it did arrive, I found boxes that were not only numbered but name labeled so I didnt have to keep going back to the list to figure out whats in every box. when the team was packing my place, there were several categories of things that they asked if I wanted them packed or not, I said that anything that looked like it would travel well for 3 months, be unloaded put in at least 2 trucks before I get it back- please pack, trusting the team to make the calls on specific items. wow was I right! the care they had put into careful packing of everything, including the breakables, is WOW. the boxes being labeled also meant faster unpacking and I was basically able to throw out the boxes themselves in less then 2 days (this includes local organizations and work). Im so happy I decided to go with Cori and her team, 3 months later +- that I had to come back here and update my review of them. Cori- if you get a notification about this update, thank you, happy 2021!Cori spoke with me several times before my move date, was very reasuring, honest, trustworthy, friendly, nice... when I asked to make the move earlier, she found a way to do it. Karen and Jackie were amazing and facetimed me through packing, and handling the moving company. excellent.

The peace of mind that they gave us during an already stressful time of year was worth every penny. Recommend.

Cori and her team are the absolute best and are angels in disguise! After months of being stuck at home during the pandemic, the clutter around my house was driving me insane. Now matter how hard I tried I didn’t have the mental capacity to go through it all and organize it myself. I started following Cori’s Instagram page and was immediately drawn to her warm nature and her ability to document the specific jobs she was doing. What I was most impressed with was her work with seniors and relocating them to senior homes. In fact, some of her stories brought me to tears! I finally pulled the trigger and it was the best decision I could have made for my family and our sanity! Cori and her team member Karen were phenomenal in helping me sift through the clutter and decide what was important to keep and what could be trashed or donated. The best part was that they handled the piles of trash and donations at the end of the day and I didn’t have to stress about where to bring all the discarded items. Everything was beautifully organized and labeled and was honestly like a dream come true! If you are thinking about hiring Cori my advice is JUST DO IT! It is money well spent! Clearing the clutter will clear your mind and allow you to focus on more important things that you’ve been putting off. I guarantee you won’t regret it!

Moving is never easy, but Cori took some of the sting out of it for us. As seniors we were not up to doing it ourselves and having her arrange for the packing and moving made it possible. We were especially impressed with how she arranged our new home to make it immediately comfortable and livable.

We recently moved into a new home and from the start I knew I wanted to have a professional come in and set me straight by editing and organizing my kitchen. Calling Cori with Simplify & Move LA was a no brainer. She came in to our home for a consult and with in a few days, set the date for my big day! I was truly amazed and blown away with all they accomplished in one day. The results totally exceeded my expectations. I love looking in my pantry and cabinets and seeing that everything has its place. My husband, although hesitant at first, is also happy and grateful with the results...A million thanks to Cori and her team (my fairy Godmothers)

We found Cori through word of mouth and through following her on Instagram. She was immediately responsive and guided us through a complicated move that required lots of organizing, bringing in appraisers, researching and organizing storage options, movers, trash pick ups, donations etc. We were also organizing the move from a distance and were not able to meet her or attend the move in person. We put complete faith in Cori and were not disappointed! Cori guided us through every step of the way and checked in frequently. All in all it was a three day move with many moving parts that had to be coordinated. Cori, Karen and their team are very professional, diligent and helpful. We couldn’t have done it without them and will certainly work with Cori again!

This review is a long time coming and I apologize!! Cori helped me move my mom into a memory care facility and while at first I wasn’t sure I needed something like this it turned out it was an invaluable service and something I couldn’t have done without her. She thinks of everything and takes the pressure and stress off of trying to think of everything so you can focus on your loved one and the transition they are about to make. Because she moved her father not too long ago she can empathize and speaks with true experience and can hold your hand through it all. I was truly amazed with how my moms room looked when I brought her to her new home and there were so many special touches added. I thank Cori and her team and hope to have her organize me in my own home as well.

I was referred to Simplify and Move by the senior living facility I wanted to move my mom into. Cori responded right away and we met at my mom's condo several days later so I could tell her which pieces of furniture, small items, and pictures were going to be moved. I loved and truly appreciated her experienced advice. On packing day, she and her associate, Karen, were prompt, extremely respectful and capable, and packed my mom's things in a very careful manner. On the actual moving day, she met the movers at the condo and facilitated them packing and putting everything into their moving truck. Her associate, Karen, met her at the facility and after the movers had placed the furniture, Cori and Karen went to work unpacking everything else and placing it. I gave her carte blanche, as it was clear she's not just a "schlepper" - she's got an eye for design and placement. After it was done, we FaceTimed and she showed me the whole place! It was beautiful! I couldn't be more pleased. She quoted me a fair price and stuck to it - no surprises. She sent me the final invoice and accepted all payments through Zelle - so easy for me! I definitely plan to use her again when I have to clear out my mom's place in order to rent it. She told me she can not only pack and move things, but she will recommend estate appraisers and get whatever I don't want either donated or hauled away. This lady is a gem!

Cori of Simplify and Move LA, is great! She is detailed, organized, patient, caring and accomodating. She makes a great use of space, communicates well, has great follow through, and takes pride in her work, (thing that you do not find much these days).Last week Cori completed a move for my senior uncle who was moving from his 1500 sqft home to a 500 sq.ft. apartment in a senior retirement communiy. My uncle had accumulated a tremoundous amount of “stuff.” Because I live out of the area and due to covid restrictions we needed someone who could handle all the logisitics of this move. Cori was great. She came to his house FaceTimed me and we all viewed his items and discussed what he should and could take, because my uncle had lived in his home for over 50 years and was very attached to and wanted to take nearly everything. Cori patiently listened and made suggestions. When packing day came and my uncle added more items then those that were originally agreed upon, she was patient in trying to accomodate his requests.Throughout the moving process Cori communicated with my uncle, his close friend and I. She was very good about contacting me to check in and keep the move on track and was very responsive when I called and left a message, usually responding within minutes, but at the latest by the end of the day. She is detailed and organized. Her caring and upbeat and personality are reasuring and are so needed in these stressful moves for seniors.When Cori revealed the new space we were all so impressed, especially my uncle. He commented on how she had made his display items look like jewels as if they belonged in a muesum. The space was organized and looked great!If you have a move I recommend Cori and Simplify and Move LA.

Where do I begin?! Cori and Karen took my kitchen from being disorganized and overstuffed, and transformed it to a beautiful and systematic place. I feel like a weight has been lifted off of my shoulders as this was always something on my to-do list, but the thought of even emptying the drawers was overwhelming. Cori is so knowledgeable and personable. She assessed the situation and brought every solution imaginable over until she found the perfect fit for each area. Her attention to detail is amazing and she truly left her mark on our home with both form and function. I would recommend her over and over again and hope to have her back to go through the other rooms in our house!

Cori was awesome! SO thorough, communicative, organized, reliable, trustworthy and hard working. She relocated my dad to a new assisted living community and that made the experience so much easier for my dad and my family. She is wonderful! i would highly recommend hiring Simplify and Move LA!

Cori and her team are life savers! We called them very last minute to help us get our garage cleaned out. It was packed with various things that our family of four has collected over the years. We needed to get our house ready to list, and had some complicated logistics, as some stuff was going to long term storage, and some to short term storage. Karen and Jacqueline got through our garage in two days, and coached us through getting rid of so many things we don't need.We loved them so much we asked them to come back the next week to help with the interior of the house. Now our home looks so organized and tidy, and the stuff that went into storage is well organized with a reference list and a system to delineate short and long term storage. We never could have done it without them in the length of time we had. Even in the COVID-19 era we felt safe with them in our home, and they made it easy to trust them to go through our things and help us pare down and make decisions. They were pleasant to work with and good at assessing our state of mind about all of our stuff. It really helps to have an unbiased party helping out when spouses have to decide to get rid of things.We are so grateful for them.You won't regret investing in this service from Simplify and Move!

When my stepfather passed away in Los Angeles in June 2020, there was only so much I could do from Portland, Oregon. Cori stepped up and took care of EVERYTHING and did it during a national pandemic! I can't say enough about how professional, responsible, and communicative Cori was through the whole process. Highly recommended! A+++

Cori and her team handled everything from the "edit / pare down" in our former home, to scouting and suggesting the right pieces for our new home. And during the move-in, they organized everything with lightning speed. I've had friends tell me how jealous they are that within a matter of days, we were completely settled in our new home - and everything Cori did looks FANTASTIC - while some of them are going on months or years, after a move, with boxes still sitting idle.

I recently needed to relocate my elderly father, suddenly and unexpectedly. Cori and Karen came to my rescue! Challenges that seemed overwhelming to me were easily solved by Cori through her knowledge, skill, expertise and creative solutions, and the relocation process was launched and completed in a professional, organized, and expeditious manner! Cori’s sense of customer service and never-ending offers to help went above and beyond and never ceased to amaze me! Cori clearly genuinely cares about those she works with. She says it is an honor to help the elderly and their families. After working with Cori and getting to know her a little bit, I assure you, the honor was all mine! I would highly recommend Cori! …And to Cori and Karen, I say, “Thank you from the bottom of my heart!”

Cori was great to work with. She's energetic, pays attention to detail, has great suggestions, is very organized and truly cares about the people she's assisting. She moved my dad from an apartment to a single room, which required substantial downsizing, creativity and thoughtfulness, all during the COVID crisis. I can't imagine how we would have done this without her.

I did a move and had to streamline my possessions down 20% to get on one truck. Cori and team came in and helped me sort, sell, organize, donate and pitch things. I paid for there services many times over just on sales. Hard workers and great ideas. Highly recommend!

Cori and her team were excellent. People now marvel at the organization and neatness of my garage. And the best part is that the system she put into place really sustains...We don’t feel as if we have to keep up with anything difficult. All the stuff just has a place! Highly recommend.

Cori and her team are so friendly and energetic and wow do they get it done quick! We communicated for a few months before I finally made the commitment to have our garage organized for a move coming up. I just wish we had done it sooner. ! My husband was not initially on board (we can do it ourselves mentality), he agreed because we just kinda ran out of time. After his entire work area of the garage was organized and labeled he was so thankful and beyond impressed and happy. Even if we had more time we could never have achieved what Cori and Karen did. Thank You Cori, our move will be so much easier now. I look forward to scheduling my office/guestroom and hopefully the kitchen too.

It was a pleasure working with Cori to organize our kitchen, bathroom and closet storage, as well as the pesky task of de-cluttering and streamlining the filing system in my home office (where I apparently saved every receipt ever generated since 1991!) Cori has a knack for solving the Rubicks Cube of storage spaces, and makes everything look neat and pretty. And she is full of positive energy, and makes even the not-so-fun stuff feel easier!

I stumbled upon Cori's services just by chance and I'm so grateful that I did. I'm a single businessman and I needed some help de-cluttering my house. I had years and years of files and paperwork that I had been holding onto, as well as clothes decades old! Cori patiently but firmly helped me sort through everything I no longer needed and donated them to the appropriate places, bringing me back tax receipts. I had her handle many projects around my house that needed attention, like new screens on all the windows, interviewing and getting quotes from house painters and roofers. But then my de-clutter and house upkeep projects turned into a complete house remodel and Cori set up interviews with contractors and interior designers and got the entire project off the ground for me. She's fun to work with, reliable, prompt, and has energy to spare. And I never felt judged for the random possessions she kept coming across in my home! Whenever I wanted to quit, she kept me going. I highly recommend her for any guy who needs help with small or large projects.

Two years since moving into our home, the converted garage that was intended to be my husband's music studio had instead become a storage unit. I knew if I didn't do something right away, it would be a lost cause, but I also knew organizing was not my strong suit. Cori came in and in two days, we accomplished what would have taken me three months or more do on my own. Paying someone to help you decide whether or not you really need to keep "stuff" around is a hugely effective way of decluttering. And Cori's no-nonsense attitude about reducing is highly contagious.As part of her service, Cori takes unwanted items to donation centers right away, finds people to get other jobs, such as reupholstering, and drops off old technology at electronic recycling centers. Further more, if you have something you want to sell, Cori makes you put it on craigslist right away. (I sold my husband's old speakers and quickly made back her rate and then some.) After the success of the studio, I also used Cori to help organize my preschooler's room, my office and other "everything" drawers around the house.In the months since we worked together, I've found that I always think twice about what I bring into my home in the first place!! I know organizing seems like something you should be able to do on your own, but let's face it, it's much easier said than done. I really can't recommend Cori and her professional services highly enough.

Cori's personality is the perfect ingredient when you are moving. She is energetic and full of life. She did an amazing job and her efficiency really helped us to be focused. We packed in record time and it made the process so much easier when we arrived at our new home.

Cori has the ability to see order in chaos and help you focus on what you need and get rid of what you don't. My closet and laundry room/pantry were cluttered and not very functional, and after her "magic" time at my house, I can find everything so much more easily. She is professional and works quickly and she's fun to be around! It is transformational; the literal and figurative weight that is lifted when you are organized.

Working with Cori has been a joy and has given me sanity! We have systematically de-cluttered and organized every room in my house, garage and basement. After completing the house, we then organized 20+ years of memorabilia and photos for my 3 kids and husband. Everything is placed into manageable sized boxes and albums, which everyone in the family has thoroughly enjoyed.In addition to my house in Los Angeles, Cori travelled to Mammoth, CA to work the same magic at our vacation home. She helped me get rid of carloads of unwanted gear and make every closet and drawer beautifully organized, labelled and a pleasure to open.Throughout these projects Cori has been incredibly easy to schedule and work with. She has wonderful ideas about how to tackle and implement a project and is laser focused on helping you complete your goals. Cori works hard and quickly. She is always thorough, finding solutions for your storage needs, clearing away the clutter and delivering all your unwanted items to a donation center at the end of each session. She has scheduled Salvation Army and City of LA large bulky item pick ups, as well as other creative solutions for items that still have life in them.Cori is always upbeat, professional, discreet and fun to work with. Her rates are reasonable and I couldn’t recommend her more highly!

Cori was a HUGE help before, during and after our move. She was extremely efficient, pro-active and experienced. She knew exactly how to pack up our most fragile items, and did it in record time. Working full time and raising two kids, it would have been almost impossible to pack our belongings in time without her help.And, after we moved, she came to the new house to help us unpack and get organized. After the stress and exhaustion of the move, it was so wonderful to come home from work to see my kitchen organized (better than I would have done it!), and my kids' rooms and office unpacked and organized as well. It really made the move SO much less painful, and got us to the point where we could enjoy our new house that much quicker. I recommend Cori without reservation!

My husband and I had fallen out of love with my West Hollywood home and was considering moving. My realtor advised me to declutter before listing our home, and she sagely added, “You might like it a lot better once you’ve decluttered a bit.” She recommended a couple of organizers, and my husband and I immediately settled on Cori for her energy and great ideas, which were apparent when she arrived to meet us. I foisted her off on my curmudgeonly packrat husband, thinking, “If she can make headway with him, then she’s a miracle worker.” She organized his office, and then the whole house project was underway. Mind you, we had about 3 households of accumulated furniture and belongings jammed into our home, a result of inheriting my mom’s furniture, which was combined with my own stuff, things from my previous marriage that had been in storage, and everything from my husband’s home before we got married and moved to LA.Cori helped us part with excess stuff, arranged for donation pickups, consignment pickups, and removal of many, many bags of accumulated and unnecessary junk, over the space of a few weekends. She and her associate Karen were endlessly cheerful, energetic, and sympathetic as needed to help me part with excess household items. I came to appreciate the process of “editing” to eliminate things I no longer loved, used, or needed, and as the project progressed, I was able to edit a room, and then enlist their help to organize it into a truly appealing and highly functional space. I was amazed by their boundless energy, and I recognized that I would have been unable to do it by myself. Cori hauled 15-20 heavy bags of clothing down a flight of stairs to deliver to a thrift shop. I would have abandoned the project long before, without her efficiency and hard effort. I really liked her vision for how to organize a room to make it work well. For instance in our kitchen, she was very attentive to what we used frequently (easy access) vs. only for parties (upper shelves). Six months out from the project it was still easy to find things—and even more importantly, to put them away again! Having an easily accessible place to put things away means that I actually DO put them away, and having organized the storage so it is easy to see everything means that I don’t waste time shuffling things around to find what is behind the first row of items.I'm updating this review because a year later, we decided to move out of LA, and relied on Cori and Karen to help us pack--and then they flew to our new home and helped us unpack in the space of 5 very busy and productive days. It would have taken us months without their help, but they got everything organized in a flash! We’re so grateful to Cori and Karen for organizing things to make best use of the storage space and easily access the things we need most frequently.

“Cori went from room to room and helped me purge years of items I had collected. We labelled everything from clothing shelves to storage closet. Everything has its place now. She took my donations, returns, trash and shredding and took them out of my house and brought them to their respective places. She gave me ideas and implemented better organizing for my business and personal files. She helped me with organizing recipes, business items and bedrooms. Also, I had been paying for a 10x10’ storage unit for 15 years. And over a weekend, we cleared out the whole thing, down to really the only items I wanted to keep and I was able to get rid of the unit- and the monthly cost! She even took my frequent flier cards and put them into my phone, so I wouldn’t have to carry so much junk around.But the favorite thing she did for me is take 10 boxes of memorabilia for YEARS of my two teen daughters growing up, and condense it down to a manageable sized binder for each! My daughters love their memory books, and I loved getting rid of those 10 boxes… and FINALLY having a great way to keep their keepsakes!And lastly, Cori keeps me on task… that had always been my issue with trying to organize myself. She is a life saver!!! I feel like a new woman. “

I highly recommend Cori to anyone who needs help decluttering and/or organizing their space. I first called Cori because I was completely overwhelmed with junk. Between my two kids and a full time job, our two bedroom condo and office became a disaster zone. I had no time to sort through things, and I was terrified of approaching anyone to help me with such a daunting, monumental task.Cori arrived like a breath of fresh air...well, more like an organizing tornado. She helped me sort through every inch of my house, and then took everything with her to donate when she left my home, so I was left with an organized, zen space. She has a natural ability to identify the best way to organize a home, is incredibly patient, and has amazing energy (which was critical every time I wanted to quit). She is warm, funny and fun to be around, which made the whole process infinitely more bearable. I cannot recommend Cori enough!! You’ll wonder why you waited so long to GET ORGANIZED!

Cori is nothing short of amazing, a true ray of sunshine into the dim corners of my closet. After 17 years of accumulating clothing, shoes and accessories in my closet, I could no longer locate a good percentage of the things I wanted to wear, let alone find place for anything new. In conversation before embarking on this daunted project, Cori offered confident reassurance that I could trust.Help arrived punctually and well-equipped, entering my home with a smile on her face, a box of large garbage bags and no judgement. Over the course of a weekend afternoon, Cori helped identify pieces to keep, items no longer of interest and patiently guided me as I weighed the merits of continuing my pack-rat ways with making room for the wardrobe I truly wanted to keep. Her calm demeanor, rational suggestions, incomparable cheer and deference kept the task moving while instilling a sense of fun, as we laughed together over unfortunate style choices lurking on forgotten hangers. Sorting through 5 shelves, 4 racks and 60 shoe boxes, Cori reorganized and denoted areas for each, then tackled my dresser to remove garments no longer worn and create space for everyday necessities, previously stuffed into random bags on my closet floor.She then graciously schlepped six large hefty bags full of discards to a favorite charity and returned with a tax receipt and organizing tools to perfect the purge, including no-slip hangers, clear shoe boxes and sweater bags to protect my investments.Getting dressed is now something to enjoy, with a feeling of contentment Cori created. I know where everything is! I recommend her highly to friends… and especially my own clients as a valuable resource in any area of your home or office. Cori rocks.

Working with Cori Allvey has been an excellent experience. After years of having a busy work schedule – my house definitely needed a clean-out and Cori was the perfect person to help me. She was organized, solution oriented, extremely time efficient and left no detail un-attended. She patiently, yet firmly went through every nook and cranny in my house and the end result has been wonderful. I have been holding onto so many items for years that I never touch. Cori encouraged me to finally let go of all of the extra stuff and in the process, she also helped me donate much of it to worthy causes.If you are ready to commit to really letting go of your extra things – Cori is the best person to help you with home or office. She has worked tirelessly and efficiently to help me reach my goals and I am thrilled with the results!”

“Hiring Cori to organize your house is like hiring a friend who has known you for years and who won’t let you be your own worst enemy. She is inspirational, motivating, and trustworthy. In my dreams, Cori lives with me for a month, transforms my whole house, scrapbooks my life, and shows me how to cook so I can relax and read a book every once in a while. I would recommend her to anybody and everybody. No matter what type of clutter is around you, Cori will turn a headache into a fun and rejuvenating experience.In two days with Cori, I did more organizing and purging than I had done myself in two years! I wasn’t even tired when she left-- I wanted to keep going! My house finally looks like all the pages of the magazines I’ve been ripping out for years – which Cori had me throw away, of course!I can’t recommend her services enough.She is so matter-of-fact about the whole process that it took much less time than I thought it would. Cori, I feel accomplished. I can’t thank you enough.
