“I was faced with downsizing and prepping my house to sell in a very short period of time – about a month. We had been in the house for over 18 years. My husband had serious health issues at the time. So this was a very daunting task. Nancy came recommended by someone from my town who had used her twice. Once I talked with Nancy on the phone I felt so much better. She was knowledgeable, professional, clearly organized and a good listener. After her initial visit when we walked through my house, I knew exactly what I needed to do. I felt a big weight was lifted off my shoulders. When complications arose, she responded without skipping a beat. I highly recommend her.” Kathy Warren, Homeowner, Lexington MA
“We hired Organizing Services of New England, led by Nancy Hodgman, to assist us in organizing our individual staff offices, common work areas, as well as storage and file rooms prior to our organization’s move to its new “home.” During the six months that Nancy worked with us, she addressed all of our organizing challenges efficiently, effectively, and professionally. Among the multitude of tasks performed, Nancy inventoried our (paper) files, furniture, office equipment, art, and other assets, both for those coming with us to the new building, and those items to be tagged, sold, or destroyed. No small task, Nancy took on the challenge to organize paperwork in personal offices, and coached individual staff members on personal organization, time management and team coordination. She performed with collegiality and professionalism. Nancy worked extremely well with our hired move management team which included a Move Manager, an Architectural Space Planner, and a Moving company. Nancy clearly identified each team member’s role and assisted in keeping move related tasks on track. She also created a plan to assign physical files to file cabinets in the new space. This work allowed us to reduce our physical papers and equipment to support a streamlined physical move to the new building. Nancy’s collaborative approach and magnificent efficient work-style allowed our team to achieve its organizing challenges prior to and after our office move. It is without hesitation that I highly recommend Organizing Services of New England for tackling complex office organizing projects.”

“Nancy is a multi-talented, diligent, detail-oriented, professional and organized colleague. In our environment she is a marketer, writer, editor, researcher, administrator, and project manager. She is an invaluable team member, bringing a cool head with years of experience in developing effective approaches not only to getting work done, but to communicating with stakeholders to effect change. I can’t imagine how I’d get through a week without her as a colleague! She can keep dozens of projects all moving forward, and communicate with all of the people involved in a way that keeps them on track in the most pleasant and professional manner. Nancy’s demeanor allows her to be effective with clients as well as co-workers. Nancy loves variety – so whether the request is a head-breaking major program or a quick clerical task – she greets each assignment with enthusiasm and completes it thoroughly and effectively. She’s the glue that has kept me together for years now!”
Julie Fraser, Principal, Present Source and Iyno Advisors
“Nancy is that most valuable of colleagues, someone you can trust not only to handle a wide range of projects, processes, problems, people and situations; but also to do this to the highest professional standards, keeping everything on track, taking initiatives
to make things better, and making sure everyone involved knows what’s going on. Calm, organized, effective and a pleasure to work with, Nancy’s projects have a habit of running to plan and delivering better than expected results.”
Peter Thorne, Director, Cambashi Ltd.

Her role requires interaction with clients, prospective clients and business partners and in this regard she is an accomplished ambassador for the company.”

“I have known Nancy for a long time and worked very closely with her when we started and built our nonprofit youth center called Danny’s Place. We would not have been successful without her.
