A new year is a great time for a fresh start! What do you need to do to get your home in better shape for 2019? Many have jumped on the Kondo bandwagon with the launch of Marie Kondo’s new show on Netflix – “Tidying Up with Marie Kondo.” The show offers practical steps to address clutter that are useful if you want to enjoy your space more or to prepare for a move. 


Whether you have a little or a lot, there’s surely an area (or more!) in need of TLC. We’re not here to suggest you aim for perfection, but we do love the idea of passing along items you no longer need. There are so many wonderful local charities that would benefit from your in-kind donations. Let us know if you need names of organizations to come pick your items up!


For those of you preparing for an upcoming move, particularly sellers, decluttering is a MUST. The first impression of your home is everything! When potential buyers don’t feel at ease in your space their attention shifts to your mess instead of the high points your home has to offer. We will work with you to get tidy before listing. If it’s a big job, we’ve got folks we can call in – like JDog Junk Removal or a professional stager to suggest ways to organize. Call on us anytime at 913.402.2599!


Find a place where you can tuck away a trash bag or box. When you come across items you no longer use, drop them in right away! This is a super easy way to collect on a regular basis. As your bags/boxes get full, call for a pick up and keep future clutter at bay!

It’s the start of a New Year! What are your goals for 2019? If a move is among your plans, we would love the opportunity to help! We’re already taking spring listing appointments and we expect to see more inventory hitting the market soon.
