Working with Christie on my basement was an absolutely transformative experience. She is a magician. I went from depressed, overwhelmed, stressed, and stuck to energized and excited about what my basement space will look like when I’m done. Christie is the perfect combination of compassion, encouragement, skill, knowledge, and muscle. Her accepting and non-judgmental vibe (letting someone see your mess is *hard*!) helped me trust her immediately. She has an uncanny ability to know when to step up, be direct, and take the lead -- and when to step back and let me do things a certain way. I got on my own nerves, but I never seemed to get on hers! How?!?! I dreaded going through everything that was down there. Having a professional help me was exactly what I needed. Honestly, I can’t think of anyone who wouldn’t benefit from some time with her. We spent about 10 focused hours together dealing with the nightmare that was my basement over the course of months, but I would not hesitate to have her help me reimagine spaces and help me get unstuck in other areas of my house – big or small. She worked literal magic with me. I now love going down into my basement to work on the zones we set up or to get on my treadmill and enjoy myself instead of feeling terrible about the overwhelming mess down there. I was at the end of my rope and pushed through my shame and fears and called her and will be forever grateful for the transformation she helped me create. Thank you, Christie!
Words can't express how amazed we were with all that you did. We really didn't know where to begin and with your help we got the house organized, staged to sell, found a realtor and sold the house which allowed us to move closer to our grand kids. We are so grateful for all you did to help us through this transition. What a relief to have it all done !
JIO assisted me in downsizing my mother's home and moving her to a senior living facility. We were challenged by the timelines and were forced to work under a very uncertain timeline. Journey In Order really did a fantastic job! They provided the care and attention needed and a personal touch that transitioned my mom to her new living facility. They hosted an estate sale that cleared everything out of our house three weeks prior to agreed upon date. I couldn't be more pleased with the level of serv ice provided.

Christie was life saving! I live out of town and my father's home with 30 plus years of furnishings, household items ad lots of other stuff was completely sorted, donated, or sold. I would have spent at least a month doing what she did in a week's time. I cannot recommend her more highly!
After years of living with an embarrassing kitchen pantry, I hired Journey in Order to help organize the most used space in my house. Christie was fabulous in helping me decide how to utilize and love my pantry!
After years of considering a move from the mid west to the east coast, Christie completely organized our 20 years of possessions. She helped us overcome the insurmountable fears and uncertainty of disposal and moving our lifelong possessions. Very highly recommended!
