Jennifer was a life saver! I had recently started a non-profit and quickly found myself overwhelmed because, to be quite honest, I was very disorganized! I called on Jennifer for help. She came over and immediately helped me put things in perspective. Her calm demeanor and creative organizing tips and tricks allowed me to get things under control rather quickly.
Jennifer has a unique ability to help you UNDERSTAND the benefits of organizing, and more importantly, she taught me maintenance skills and gave me the desire to keep up with it. I am proud to say that months later, I am still in control! I am still organized and my non-profit is thriving because of it!
Thank you Jennifer/Partners In Moving for your guidance and support. I highly recommend your services for organizing, down-sizing, moving or transitioning to a new space.
For the last several years I have been struggling with issues related to downsizing my house and possessions. I am a senior citizen, artist, designer, and garden enthusiast. I’ve created, collected, and inherited so many things which are difficult to part with because they represent who I am, and tell the story of my life, then and now. My goal has been to decide how and where to live for the remainder of my life while I am still active and in good health. Downsizing to live within a senior community would offer, among other things, less responsibility, on-site services and companionship/social interaction. Since I felt that I was moving much too slowly toward my goal, I decided to consult with Jennifer Nakahara of Partners in Moving, a highly recommended organizer.
In her role as a professional organizer, Jennifer has accelerated my progress considerably. The name of her business, Partners in Moving, is quite appropriate. In our meetings, we collaborate more the way partners wold. I see that Jennifer is fully invested in supporting my efforts to identify and achieve whatever will be most advantageous to the quality of my life. She is patient - I never have the feeling that she is punching a time clock. She is generous with her time, her words and her actions. It is not unusual for Jennifer to call me between our organizing sessions to discuss strategy and or to express her encouragement. Her consistent follow-through and generosity has earned my trust and confidence.
Jennifer‘s spontaneity and enthusiasm are contagious. She truly loves this work! Whether brainstorming for an out-of-the-box moving solution or focusing on a time consuming task which requires concentrated attention to detail, Jennifer is willing and able to tackle all challenges while always keeping the big picture in mind. She has helped me create more inviting, functional spaces within my current home, and proved to me that the chronic clutter I have been tolerating is actually controllable.
When Jennifer explains a particular rationale or suggestion, her explanation is always interesting, clear and practical, making it easy to understand why adapting the idea would make sense. Sometimes I get inspired to carry her suggestions even further. I appreciate knowing that she is respectful of my ideas, feelings and boundaries, and yet tactfully forthright with me. I know that she always has my best interest at heart.
I can confidently say that both personally and professionally, Jennifer Nakahara is one of a kind – a true gem and a blessing!
As a realtor, I have noticed that it is sometimes difficult for buyers to envision the possibilities in a home that needs extensive updating or renovations. Recently I had a listing that required a lot of imagination to see it's potential. I hired Jennifer/Partners In Moving for her creativity and vision. Using her design talents, Jennifer met with contractors to create a new floor plan. She also created two budget levels of 3-D renderings for the kitchen, master bath and mudroom, as well as provided sample boards for each. Additionally, Jennifer met with the painters and landscapers to choose interior and exterior paint colors, as well as make landscaping decisions. Jennifer was easy to work with, very positive and had great insights. I think one of the reasons the house sold quickly was that she made it possible the buyer to see what the house could be. I would gladly recommend Jennifer to anyone who is looking for renovation, space planning or design ideas.
Jennifer Nakahara is connoisseur of everything home related , from the most efficient way to organize your fridge, to decorating your home, to recommending efficient ways to manage the house! She’s worth every penny...and then some! Thank you for all you've done to help me gain control in my house Jennifer !
