My Space Reclaimed blessed my family and our home! Maristella reorganized my kitchen, and did an outstanding job! The time and money was very much worth the investment. She helped me purge and organize to achieve maximum efficiency, and put systems in place so that we can maintain the space.  We experienced total peace this weekend. I am looking forward to working with My Space Reclaimed again to help me restore peace and balance in our lives. A great experience!

-Deris R. McKinney – March 2020

But when my closet was done, I cried and did the happy dance. This was part of a long-held dream of a beautiful master bathroom and closet area. My expectations were exceeded. She helped me let go of things I had no idea I needed to let go of. I am getting further educated on some habits I need to break.  Feeling like a kid about this “stuff” and gently being reminded what the cure is. My Space Reclaimed takes Mari Kondo to the next level!

– Sonya R. McKinney– August 2019

Maristella was such an asset for us. We recently completed a renovation and had her help us organize our closets and the kitchen. She not only helped us unpack and get everything in the right location, but also made sure to walk us through the organization systems to ensure we stay organized. She was also great working around our situation, including our territorial dog and numerous contractors in and out of the house. We highly recommend using Maristella!
