Meet Sandy Gerstein of Sandy Organizes You

Today we’d like to introduce you to Sandy Gerstein.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Sandy. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
Originally from New York, I attended Washington University in St. Louis where I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Sociology with a minor in Business Administration. After graduation my first job was delivering mail at NBC in Rockefeller Center. From there I worked for several TV production companies and found my way to a Madison Avenue ad agency, supervising a dozen employees and in charge of accounts such as Motorola, Talbots of Boston, Ann Taylor and many others.

While working at the agency I decided to go back to school at night and earned my Master’s in Elementary Education at Hunter College of the City University of New York. Migrating out of the city to Westchester, NY we expanded our family and I spent time home with our kids. I was always the mom at playdates sorting Barbie’s clothes from legos, organizing books on a shelf by size and helping friends clean out their kid’s outgrown clothes.

After moving to South Florida in 2003 I became active in my children’s school first as VP of Ways and Means on the PTA (fundraising) and then a three-year stint as PTA President. These experiences only honed my organizing, leadership and people skills. In 2005 my neighbor, who was an organizing and productivity specialist, needed help on a job and I assisted her with a giant pack and move, and unpack. I couldn’t believe I could re-invent myself with a career in helping others get and stay organized!

Sandy Organizes You was born and I have been helping South Florida get organized ever since!

Sandy combines her genuine love of people and a plethora of organizational skills (gained while an Account Executive at a Madison Avenue Advertising Agency, PTA President and Mom to two busy teens), to provide her client’s with peace and serenity in their home and workspace.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
I have learned a lot over the course of my decade in helping others. I pride myself on my connections and therefore I spend a lot of time cultivating resources that will better serve my clients. Whether it be a mover, an estate liquidator, a handyman or an interior designer, I will only recommend those I know, like and trust.

Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Sandy Organizes You, LLC – what should we know?
My team and I treat each and every one of our clients with kindness and compassion. We take our time getting to know them, their strengths and their limitations. It is often not easy for our clients to ask for help and we are there to guide and encourage their growth while getting the job done, swiftly and expediently.

We help with household organization, such as closets, garages, kitchens, bedrooms, and playrooms. We have set up or re-organized many in-home offices. We have moved companies to new locations and have helped other small businesses with paper management and productivity services. We are called upon to help purge and pack for a household move and then unpack in the new home. We unpack and help situate when people are relocated for their jobs. We aid realtors in decluttering and staging homes so the listing shows well and sells quicker.

Being located in South Florida, we have worked with many baby boomers and seniors who are downsizing and moving from a large house to a smaller home, or an apartment, independent living, assisted living and memory care. We are also called upon to help after a loved one passes away as many times the family either lives out of town or needs help during this difficult and emotional time.

Is there a characteristic or quality that you feel is essential to success?
Throughout the growth of my business and the ups and downs of being a business owner, I remain grateful for the genuine love of what I do in being able to help people during an often difficult and stressful time in their lives. A guiding premise for my staff is to have compassion for all those we work with and kindness towards our clients, their families and those we come in contact with each and every day.

    I do agree with all the ideas you’ve presented in your post. They’re very convincing and will definitely work. Still, the posts are very short for starters. Could you please extend them a little from next time? Thanks for the post.
