Yasmin pays for herself! What I mean by that is that she earns every penny and helps you earn much more than what you spend. I have worked with Yasmin in a variety of capacities and each time I found this to be the case. She is pure delight.
My first experience was in 2001, when I personally hired her to help me organize my professional office. Having worked with another organizer I feared the worst. She shocked me by her gentleness yet effectiveness. Within short order I was much more efficient and the money I had spent came back to me in my ability to work less hours and make more money! What a great result. I was shocked.
The even more powerful experience I had with Yasmin was more in recommending her to clients of mine. I am a Realtor with more than 25 years of experience, and I wish almost all of my clients would use Yasmin’s services. Yasmin’s sensitivity to the selling process covers every aspect of the sale. (And she helps the agent sell the home for more money!). Her activities can include, helping the seller de-clutter, the most difficult aspect for all of us in selling unless you’re a neat-nik! She helps organize you for the move – saving you time in packing and making sure you’re not spending money moving things you don’t need anymore. She helps you divest yourself of unneeded/unwanted items that have remained in your home and she finds ecological, responsible ways of donating/recycling your belonging OR selling those items for top dollar. She then puts the cherry on top with her exquisite staging ability! I have worked with many stagers and she’s the best of them all!
A recent phenomenal experience was when I referred her to a client of mine, and by the time she was done – which was a mere 2.5 weeks from start to finish! She had the home looking so appealing that I suggested raising the price higher than the market would bear! This was a risky move for the seller. After setting the bar higher than any other sale in the neighborhood, and with two other homes for sale on the same block, we sold the home the very first weekend it was listed and we received the full (elevated) price!
There were back-up buyers who were ready to dive-in if anything had happened to the first buyer – a remarkable position for any seller. Every penny the seller paid Yasmin was more than doubled in the higher price he received, and his piece of mind was immeasurable! As I said, if sellers believed me that she is as remarkable as she is, they would all earn more money on their homes and the outlay they spent would be covered and perhaps doubled!
Working with Yasmin has been eye-opening. Yasmin leads with probing questions always leaving the final decision with the client. She is non-judgmental and flexible, borrowing and building upon what is already working for the client to make it better. I was very leery of having to reveal my quirks to an organizer, but Yasmin completely dispelled any hesitation I had. I cannot recommend her more highly.

As a client of Yasmin’s, I can guarantee that her organizational and coaching skills will have a powerful, positive and lasting effect on your life. Yasmin helped me change how I functioned in life, how I viewed myself at home and in business, and how I could be more effective, efficient and productive.
My objective in partnering with her was to have my life’s vision for “freedom, power and joy” be evident and apparent in my lifestyle, namely, my closets. The before and after were remarkable. I realized the impact of one’s environment and the degree to which I constantly adapted. It was like magic – Yasmin created, designed and built the perfect environment for me. As someone who traveled quite extensively, I wanted to be able to go quickly, effortlessly and often. I also wanted the assurance that when I returned home I would be welcomed by comfort, not clutter – organized at last. Adapting to this new lifestyle was indeed a powerful, freeing and joyful experience.

I engaged Ms. Goodman to provide her professional organizing skills in my home. I was very appreciative of her ability to listen to my needs, devise a plan to meet those needs and implement the plan with great results. I would highly recommend her to friends and clients.

Yasmin Goodman at Organized At Last is a pearl worth keeping. What seemed a dreaded chore (managing my desk) turned into a fun and engaging activity. I would rather pull out my nails than clean my desk! Yet the time had come where my wife was going to pull them out for me if I didn’t manage this situation. Yasmin somehow made organizing fun! She listened to what I needed and made suggestions that transformed my desk to a place I now love to inhabit.

Yasmin provides keen listening for the client’s needs and provides creative solutions that can fit in anyone’s budget. She is a coach, a facilitator, an extra set of hands to get the job done. Her list of contacts is vast. Whatever the job needed, she could pick up the phone and get it managed. Piles of books, closets of wardrobe, document shredding, and more got managed with speed and efficiency. Yasmin was amazing, great to have her working with me.
I wanted to plan my husband’s surprise 50th birthday party, but I was going to be out of the country for much of the time. A friend had given me Yasmin’s number and suggested I call her. What a wonderful gift. Yasmin worked with me to plan the event, coordinated the whole thing. She truly made this a memorable event for my family and friends!
