Maristella is a great consultant, motivator, inspiration, digging through the roots of my “organized chaos” and spreading her positive energy to my upcoming organized and reclaimed living spaces. Her ability to help me refocus and to empower me will be a lasting gift.
I give Maristella a “10-stars” rating! Perfect consultant for organizing professional and personal living spaces!
Don’t wait too long to call for her professional organizer help!
Thank you Maristella! You are simply AWESOME!

We had now created a deadly obstacle course that could only belong in the Saw Movie Series. I literally need to reclaim my space! My Space Reclaimed, LLC is a clever name and the owner is nothing short of brilliant. Maristella helped me face and manage my fear: being overwhelmed by too many ‘things’, paralyzed to do anything, starting something, not finishing and starting some other project, yet never completing anything.
Flash-forward to March 27th. I read through some reviews and reached out to those that caught my eye. Maristella was the first to respond; her reviews were excellent and the before/after photos only reinforced the 5 Star service she had been given by other customers. I completed a professional questionnaire customizing the services specific to my needs, signed a very comprehensive contract and we set an appointment for the 28th of March. That’s how quickly she was able to accommodate me.
She arrived the next day: punctual, her uniform attire with logo perfectly pressed, every and all cleaning & organizing supplies one can dream of. I was nervous, would she judge? Would we get along? Was I ready to do this? Would she be a slave driver? Was she going to be mean? I was seriously worried for nothing. She was awesome, I liked her immediately. This was a person I wanted to work with. Then the magic began.
My goal was to clean the garage as a surprise before my boyfriend returned from Rome – I had 5 days. To accomplish clearing out the garage and the following tasks was next to impossible: Organize the Fridge Purge Clothing & Closets Separate & Re-Create Men’s/Women’s Closets De-Clutter Bathrooms De-Clutter Laundry Area Organize Pantry Purge & Organize all files, paperwork, etc. Label Files, Pantry Items, etc. Maristella was an inspiration.
The work she does is not easy, but she loves it (I am still shocked that someone could love it, but she does). Plan, designate, focus, attack, finish – this was the process. While she was doing this, I chose to follow suit-it was inevitable that this may not last once she left. I asked her to tell me what to do, direct me and tell me how and tell me how long I should take (every detail needed for someone with raging ADHD). This ends like a fairytale – the goal was met, we did everything we needed to do! Maristella still did most of it, but I realized as a client I also had to buy into the process. It was a great experience and I learned this process that really gets me motivated & moving. Now, there are times when I lose that luster, but I’ve contacted Maristella when this happens and somehow she gets me right on track. I call that beyond responsive and Maristella does go above and beyond expectations. She takes great pride in her work, it is a reflection of her.

When you struggle with disorganization and clutter, it can be embarrassing to ask for help. I never felt judged, and Maristella gave me lots of tips to keep things organized. She also pointed out clutter traps and some of my habits that contribute to clutter and chaos. For example, I had purses, backpacks, make up pouches, tote bags, and other small bags all over my home filled with work supplies, make up, money, phone chargers, medication, etc. We unloaded every backpack, bag, purse, pouch and I realized how much money I have wasted buying duplicate items. I am throwing money away because I can’t find what I do have and end up buying more.
She helped me sort through things and decide what to keep. Once we decided what items were staying, we found homes for these items. It seems so easy once you finish, but it’s not something that comes easily to me. Maristella stressed that being disorganized is not a character flaw and helped me realize that a few changes will lead to success. I plan to work with Maristella when I move to my new home.
She will assist me to set up systems that will work in my new place. In the past, it has taken me months to unpack or I never fully unpacked my stuff because I was overwhelmed. We discussed how I can do things differently. I have already recommended Maristella to a friend. I look forward to working with her again!
Fort Worth – February, 2016
Maristella contacted me immediately. I was supposed to send her photos of my place but never did because I was embarrassed at the clutter. She was very kind and non-judgmental. We set up an appointment and she came two times. It cost more than I expected but it was worth every penny! Maristella put me at ease immediately. She loves organization and went to work within minutes of arriving. She was at my place for five hours each session and only stopped for 15 minutes to eat lunch.
She is a human dynamo! She was very helpful in establishing zones and deciding where things should go and consolidating. She also helped me get rid of a lot of stuff I didn’t use or need anymore. Because I could never find anything, I had so many duplicates. I highly recommend My Space Reclaimed and Maristella.

My Space Reclaimed came and found a logical place for everything I owned. They even went out and bought a bunch of items I needed (but had not even realized), like new pillows, things for the kitchen, additional trashcans, etc. They found and hung up my diplomas and some other artwork I had in boxes for years. Many empty boxes and things were no longer needed were discarded. They even did some laundry, in order to fully organize my clothes in the closet and dress my bed to look its best.
When they left, there was so much space, my apartment looked fantastic (they did some staging of the apartment as well) and everything had a logical place. It made sense! I highly recommend Maristella and her company – My Space Reclaimed. They have allowed me to continue to be more organized and I now get things done more efficiently. It’s great to come home to a clean, well organized place.

She was attentive to my needs to have everything visible and at hand. This was a special challenge for her because my home has a severe lack of storage space. Somehow she manage to accomplish the goal, despite this fact. After the physical re-organization of the home was completed, she coached me on time management. I have a complex medical routine to follow, which she decoded and put in an action plan for me to follow.
Maristella was very knowledgeable and understanding. She directed the process in a firm but compassionate way, applying the amount of pressure I think I needed to de-clutter my home. She was patient and went the extra mile.
