Karen | Client Whisperer, Dream Organizer

Karen Swain

Organizer | Hoarding & Clean out Specialist

I will step into residential/hoarding situations as if I was born to handle them. I am a ‘client whisperer.’ I have always had the ability to empathize with them and it’s important to me that I work with the client not ahead of them or behind their backs. I create a team that they are part of.”

And THAT is why Karen is a part of this team. She understands that clients can be nervous, bossy, stressed, depressed - the total range of emotions - during a clean out, so she reads people and adjusts to get the job done. She’s happiest when she can work to capacity and make the client feel that their wishes weren’t just carried out, but well exceeded.

She also brings decades of experience in organizing to the mix. Her teammates love her for her sense of fun and her measured, even temperament. Those two traits carry a Herculean amount of weight in our business and she’s a worker from the minute the project begins until every single need and client dream is met.

Her downtime is spent with her husband on their seven acres, gardening, playing with pets, hosting their grandchildren and keeping up their property. One can only assume that at some point………. she sleeps.
