We work with homeowners and apartment dwellers in Oakland and surrounding areas and who need to get organized in preparation for moving, remodeling or simply to enjoy their homes more with less stuff.
How We Got Started
Most people want to "be" organized but few have the time, energy and motivation to actually "get" organized. We make it easy to decide what stays, goes and then we get it done for you - organized, sold, donated, or tossed. We can even manage and direct your movers on move day and get you fully unpacked and set up in your new home within a few days. You live in your home. We make room for you to enjoy it!
Our Ideal Customer
Busy, active or retired homeowners who need help getting organized to move, remodel or simply want to enjoy their homes more with less clutter and can't or don't know how to do it themselves.

Businesses We Recommend
Under the watchful eye of owner, Giovanna Tanzillo, Uptown has for years provided me, my family and others I know, great service and timely repair to my cars. They truly respect and care about their customers and they are a great support to other small, local businesses in Oakland.
I can always count on them to take care of my clients' moves and they have a very helpful office staff.
Jackie and Chimene from Red Oak Realty in Montclair serve their clients with respect and care. They place their clients needs above everything. They know Oakland inside-out and they educate their clients on the transaction, whether buying or selling, every step of the way. They work together in work and in life which makes them a truly great team!

1 box or 100 they will shred it all, even while you watch. They recycle hard drives too. Plus they are nice people and the prices are fair. Have 5 or more banker boxes and they will pick them up. A huge convenience.
The best professional photo that's ever been taken of me. Nancy is the photographer for people who hate having their picture taken. She is equally talented with portraits as she is with editorial photography.
Of all the social media tools I've used this one is the most user-friendly. I've actually had fun setting up my profile, answering and asking questions, getting and receiving recommendations and setting up future "coffee" dates. What a great idea!
I've worked with Jamie and I think she is great at helping others with those things that need to get done but you just don't have the time for. She is professional, friendly, caring and she loves animals.
I can show up here in the pouring rain or at 5 minutes before they close and the guys are always helpful and appreciative of my or my client's donations. This is the Oakland headquarters location so they take almost anything that is usable and the proceeds of items they sell go towards helping others get gainful employment. A win-win.
I've been working with Ross Turner since I started my business in 2009. Ross has a 6th sense when it comes to translating your ideas into a design that captures attention, reflects your point of view and targets your audience. Ross works with both large and small companies. He is organized, responsive and to his credit, is one of the funniest people I know. Although he is based in Oakland, I know he works with people and businesses across the country. He did not ask me to write this recommendation but it occurred to me to write one since I just recommended him to someone on Alignable.
