Teri Webster

Professional Organizer

Declutter To Move 



Teri is a professional organizer specializing in moves outs but also helps those not moving to reclaim rooms. 


She helps people get their house decluttered in order for them to put their house on the market and have it sell quickly. She does this by helping people sort through all their personal items to figure out what they’re going to keep, sell, pack or donate. She also packs items and she also sell things online locally for people. 


If you are not moving but want to get better organized she can help with that too. She has worked with many families to reclaim their spare room, garage, or have eliminated their storage unit saving them hundreds of dollars each month. Maybe your wish is to be able to park in your garage again. She can help fulfill this wish!
