“Best Hire I’ve Made in Years”
“48 hours after Rhea left with a carload of my books, I wonder why I’d held on to them for so long? But who else could dispatch them as rapidly? Hire her now if you have papers from years of research and the accompanying books. She works fast, non-stop. You sit at a table, and she feeds you piles, “keep, not keep.” When you break for a snack, she is organizing the next pile, pulling the next bin closer. Best hire I’ve made in years; she valued my time and money.”

Worth Every Penny
“Rhea and her assistant were excellent help to me! I had to quickly declutter my house before listing it, and they came to save me from curling up in a ball in the corner and crying. We have lived in our house for 16 years and never decluttered it. They wasted no time helping me go through things and quickly make decisions about them. By the end of it, I had a giant pile of things ready to be hauled away. I could not have done this on my own. I have never used a service like this because I prefer to save the money and do things myself, but this was well worth every penny spent. Thanks to Rhea and her assistant for their understanding, guidance, energy, and help!”

An Overwhelming Project Made Simple
“Rhea was fabulous! She arrived on time, with a positive attitude and ready to go. She took on an overwhelming project and made it feel simple and efficient. She has a great system and kept me motivated and on task. A project I expected to take 2 days took us 3 hours because of her skill and hard work. Rhea was a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend her!”

Incredibly Fast, Friendly, No Judgment
“Rhea was every bit as good as all the reviews said. Incredibly fast, energetic, friendly, brisk but not brusque, no-nonsense, no judgment. One of the things I most appreciated was the way she took charge. I told her what I wanted overall, and she broke the project down from there. I’m completely at sea when it comes to managing physical objects, and I usually just flail helplessly and make anxious noises when people ask, “How can I help?” or “What would you like me to do next?” Rhea picked up on that right away, and it was a relief to hear her say to me, “OK, here’s your next assignment.” Whenever I said something didn’t work for me, she changed course effortlessly: “Got it. OK, then this is your next assignment.” What a relief to have somebody else do so much of the thinking and remembering and planning. If you struggle with executive functions as I do, I highly recommend that you borrow Rhea’s.”

And the Oscar Goes To…
“Unbelievable performance by Rhea. Every once in a while, you stumble into the good fortune of being able to work with a person who delivers exactly as you would have hoped. And who does it in an easy and comfortable way, full of integrity. Rhea Becker has been exactly that person for me. Rhea has found a niche discipline that she is great at and has a lot of passion for – clearly understanding the profound improvement in a person’s life that her ‘de-cluttering’ can bring. Cannot possibly recommend Rhea highly enough.”

Thanks for Creating an Oasis of Calm
“Rhea saved my sanity!! She turned my apartment from an over-cluttered mess of mismatched clothes, papers, and small furniture items into an oasis of calm, peace and contentment! Never quick to judge, she works efficiently and fast, allowing me to say keep, trash or donate. All I had to do is point and she literally did all the work and made me totally anxiety free! She’s also a wonderful and caring person. I plan on having her tackle my next projects in a few months. Thank you, thank you, Rhea, for my newfound happiness!”

Patience, Humor and More
“My second experience working with Rhea was as positive as the first. I just read the testimonials here, and was very comforted to know that I am not the only person overwhelmed by the clutter I created all by myself. Rhea and I spent two hours in my clothes closet, and because of her patience, understanding, sense of humor, and organizing skills, I no longer feel angst!”
L.S., Milton, Mass.
“Rhea was super-quick to respond when I needed someone to come and organize my home the most. Once Rhea arrived, we got straight to business. In just two hours we tackled multiple ‘messes’ that would’ve taken me days to do alone. I can’t thank Rhea enough for her time and energy helping me clean my house. I highly recommend hiring her!”

She “did the work of 4-5 regular people!”
“Rhea is worth her weight in gold! She arrived on time prepared on both occasions I hired her (so far) and she facilitated the work that needed to get done in a manner that was streamlined and ultra-efficient. She managed to make tasks that seemed overwhelming simple. The amount of work she gets done in the time she is there = the work of 4-5 regular people. Seriously! Two thumbs up for Rhea!”

Her Super-Power: Seeing through the Chaos
“Rhea helped me through my overwhelm and we dealt with each thing, one by one. She has a fantastic system and can see her way through your chaos and will give you the faith that it can be accomplished. She was wonderful to work with. Positive and efficient. She has a gift, and some of us need that from time to time. My bedroom had become overflow and storage. We removed 30 bags worth of stuff: Donations and things to throw away. There is never any shaming, just a can-do attitude, kindness, and humor. I hope to use her services again for my son’s room. And I actually look forward to working with her. Lol. A spoonful of sugar to help the medicine go down :). Highly recommended.”

Thanks for Helping My mom!
“I hired The Clutter Queen as a Christmas gift for my mom to help her get unstuck and manage her anxiety when it came to decluttering and getting organized. Rhea was easy to schedule with, reassuring, and insightful. In my mom’s own words, “My fear of being judged or labeled dissipated within 10 minutes of Rhea’s arrival. She was friendly, down to earth and genuinely non-judgmental. We immediately got down to business sorting through my endless piles of nasty paper. We filled 8 trash bags full of useless paper! I would work with her again in an instant!” Thanks for helping my mom, Rhea. Your tools and positive attitude are helping her to move forward and have the confidence she needs to let things go!”

Three Hours to a New Home Office
“It would have been very, very difficult (if not impossible) to try to tackle that clean-out project on my own, and I absolutely never could have gotten it done in 3 hours. It is so nice to be able to walk by that room, and see it clear, with the door open. What remains there now feels manageable, vs. the feelings of embarrassment, overwhelm and paralysis that room gave me before.”

Nervous To Make the Call; Now Thrilled I Did
“I was really discouraged about ever getting rid of the clutter in my condo. Then a colleague of mine recommended Rhea. I was nervous to make the first call, but once she arrived and we began to work, I felt more at ease. We’ve worked together for several months now, and the changes have been incredible! First, my kitchen, then my closets, then my bedroom. I thought it would take years. I’m thrilled to say that I have reclaimed my home. Rhea has an upbeat, can-do attitude that helps the process flow along. There is no question that I wouldn’t have been able to do it without her.”
G.B., Boston, Mass.
Ten out of Ten
“Rhea helped me so much. We got rid of so much clutter. I was really nervous about how our day was going to go, but she was so kind and helpful. 10/10, would recommend.”
T.S., Brighton, Mass.
“Rhea is friendly, professional and GOOD at her job. We made great progress in short order. Will work with her again!”

Helped Me to Let Go
“Rhea is a pleasure to work with! She has a very gentle approach; she didn’t pressure me to get rid of things, but started with simply organizing what was there (in my basement). Once she organized the boxes and stuff that was there, it became clearer to me what I could let go of. At that point, Rhea didn’t stand over me and coach me as to what to decide, but worked on other things while I sorted through smaller things myself, making decisions about what to do. Rhea is very supportive, very clear-thinking and very hardworking.”

Thanks for the Motivation
“I just wanted to thank you so much for working with me to declutter my office. You gave me the insight and motivation to continue. And I’ve gotten rid of lots of unnecessary paperwork, cleaned out my small file cabinet, collected more for Goodwill, and am now starting on the bookcase. It feels great to get rid of excess stuff! Thanks!”
C.M., Cambridge, Mass.
“I called Rhea to help me with decluttering. I wanted my partner to move in with me and I knew I needed to create some space in my house that she could call her own before I could even ask. Besides that, the stuff in the closet of my spare bedroom and the papers and old magazines in my office were overwhelming to me. I hated going into my office because it was so unsettling to be faced with the mess. “Rhea came over and went through everything with me. I was scared when she first came. I thought I would feel judged about all my stuff. But it wasn’t like that. She was very kind and nonjudgmental and was a great sounding board about what I might want to keep or get rid of. She also made great suggestions, teaching me more about the web and how I could get things online rather than let the paper build up in piles that I clearly could not read or even sift through. She taught me something I use to this day: if I have not used something for a year I should really consider getting rid of it. That standard has stayed with me over the years and helped me continue to get rid of stuff I didn’t really need. It has given me a lot more room in my house to have things I really love and use and has made me feel lighter overall and less weighed down. I would recommend Rhea wholeheartedly to help with decluttering. She was great to work with and left me with lifelong new skills.”

Transformed My Life
“When I first contacted Rhea, I have to admit, I panicked. I knew I had a problem, but I was terrified to let anyone come into my home and handle my things. As soon as we met to work together, I felt my anxiety decrease. Rhea not only knew how to get me started on the path to decluttering but she knew exactly how to make me feel at ease. I felt I could trust her right away with my things. We ended up transforming several rooms in my home. I couldn’t have done it without her. Even better, I have learned lessons from Rhea that have stayed with me. I can get through piles of clutter by myself with the skills I’ve learned. I would not hesitate to recommend Rhea to anyone who needs to transform their life by removing the clutter from their environment.”
L.S., Providence, R.I.
Rediscovered My Home
“Rhea came and knew exactly what to do. We went through papers quickly and got stuff off the floor. We went through my bookshelves, which has books piled up and stuffed in them, and managed to create space. We filled lots of boxes with books and she took them to donate. My apartment looks so much better now!”
B.B., Somerville, Mass.
Result? An Office That’s Inviting to Work In
“I have worked with Rhea numerous times and plan to continue the work we have begun because of the support she has given me in sorting and purging my office. She is focused and organized. Each work session results in an office space that is less cluttered, more functional, and more inviting to work in.”
