Recently I had the pleasure of being referred to one of the nicest and most capable people I've ever come across in the organizing business, namely Shannon Duffy. Shannon has been amazing in helping me get my real estate business in a more organized state with her help in cleaning out old unneeded items and creating a more systematic approach in running my business in the future. She is extremely diligent, focused and does not waste any time. Shannon is a great resource in so many ways and has compiled many resources to help her quickly in her organizing business. I'd also give her an A+ for her help in also helping me create a wonderful landscaping look in my own backyard.

She does it all and always with a smile and laugh!

Shannon is someone who we all from time to time greatly need. I would  strongly recommend using her services. I'm sure you'll be as happy as I was. She'll take the stress out of your life quickly, just let her do her thing!


Shannon has been extremely helpful with my family's transition from our old home to our current home the past few months. She does EVERYTHING! She helped me pack my items and found the movers. Shannon helped me pick out the paint, tile, furniture, decorations, accessories and carpet for the new home and found the contractors to do the work. She helped me with my landscaping. She is resourceful and has many contacts in the industry. She is so easy to work with and I value her opinion highly. Shannon is very professional, highly organized and efficient. Her rates are affordable. I highly recommend Shannon for all your house needs from moving to decorating.  Hiring her gave me peace of mind about moving to a new home.

Shannon Duffy
Making the BIG move less of a BIG pain!

After thirty years in our big, barny, beautiful home it was time to ditch the stairs and move to a more manageable one level living space.  Between the house selling and needing to vacate, we had a very short fuse and of course had not done the necessary shedding to prepare.  

Enter Shannon who had helped a couple of friends in the same predicament.  She was a lifesaver for us.  She helped us relocate our non-essential furniture ReStore, my clothing that was nice but not used to Dress for Success, etc.  She hauled away Suburban load after Suburban load and had her handsome sons pitch in when we needed strong backs and can-do attitudes.  Shannon worked with me to get closets sorted and things packed.  There were many times when I was ready to burst into tears and fall apart and Shannon would calmly say, “Let’s just finish this closet.”  And we would.   Did I mention she was a lifesaver? 

We put some things we couldn’t bear to part with in storage, moved what would fit to the new digs and took off to Mexico for a week to recover.  It was a race to the finish and there were many days I didn’t think we’d make it.  And we wouldn’t have made it if Shannon hadn’t been managing things for us.

Our apartment was great, but small and when a larger one became available nine months later, we were just about to leave on a 12 week sabbatical.  That could have been a big problem except my first call was to Shannon to see if she could oversee moving our belongings five floors up to a more spacious apartment.  Once again she saved our sanity and handled all the details on the day of the move. including placing our things in the rooms we requested and even making the bed so we could collapse when we returned.  

Our moves were something we should have been able to handle.  But it was so much less stressful to have Shannon jump in and make sure it went well.  I am not longing to move again, but when the time comes my first call will be to Shannon.


Shannon Duffy has been a life saver for me.  I have an older home that has recently been renovated. The problem is what to do with all the STUFF that has accumulated over the years. I did not want an estate sale due to the fact that this can be unsafe with people coming back, uninvited to look over the house again. Shannon took over in a most gracious way and helped me edit what I have, making my house a home that I now love. She has incredible organizational skills and resources to help you accomplish your goals. You will be pleasantly pleased if you ever hire her services.

Shannon is GREAT! With her help, we have been able to start and complete five different home improvement projects that had paralyzed us for years. We had neither the contacts nor the time to even get things started. Not only does Shannon get things started, she makes sure they get done.... on time and on budget! No more hassling with contractors, service and delivery people... Shannon handled all of that for us. She is professional and cares as much about our projects as we do. No job is too big or too small. When anything needs to be done around the house - just call Shannon! That's what we do.

My dream came true when I hired Shannon Duffy to organize a move 3,000 miles away after living in a home for 25 years. She was professional as well as personable.

Shannon worked tirelessly in selling my things and doing it in a timely manner, I would hire Shannon again to help with any of my needs.


I first learned of Shannon’s service from a friend who was moving from a very large, old home to a very small apartment. As the friend said, “if Shannon had not been there to organize me we’d still be in the house”. Shannon has been an invaluable resource as I downsize, from places and organizations to which to donate items, (to which she delivers) to a great guy who helps move larger items and mole “getters’! She is organized, efficient and so much fun to work with. Lucky the labradoodle and I consider her a dear friend.

Shannon was a lifesaver when it came time for me to move out of our home of 20 years. She either arrived with the moving supplies we needed, or told me exactly what to get and where to get them; saving me tons of time and research. Shannon is so talented in many areas. She will help you sort through your belongings and has a place for all those things you don’t know what to do with! There are save piles, toss piles, and donate piles, and she even has ideas on where to donate and comes loaded with donation forms as well! I can’t say enough about Shannon’s boundless energy and enthusiasm. Working with her, we get 10 times more done in two hours than I could have gotten done in a week! It was helpful to have her come several times and work on packing each room. She arranged for the movers, and even helped me unpack and hang pictures in my new place! Shannon’s great eye and can- do attitude was a gift and I can’t say enough good things about working with her. She made an overwhelming task orderly and actually fun! I highly recommend working with Shannon Duffy! Your sanity is worth every penny!

I consider myself to be a very organized person, but when it comes to juggling tasks while spinning plates... Shannon Duffy has me beat and then some. I needed help to move both a personal residence and a home-based business from a rural address back into the city, at the same time downsizing from nearly 5,000 square feet plus out-buildings to about 2,500 square feet with no garage! Shannon to the rescue. She coordinated my move, including getting groups of items to the new house, to two different storage units, to donation options, and finally... to the dump. Once in, she has continued to be my go-to for both additional moving tasks (gotta keep downsizing!), as well as the organization of a complete yard renovation. I literally could not have done it without her. If you need someone who works harder than you can imagine, charges fairly, and has contacts for everyone and everything, Shannon is amazing. Oh, and one other thing, I never once saw her get annoyed or break a sweat. Something I was doing on my own about every other day. Thank you, Shannon for helping me keep it all together.


Shannon Duffy is amazing and very resourceful. She has helped me with moving out of my old home and moving in with my new home. She helped me pack and organize my belongings, as well as helping me decide what to get rid of and where to take it to donate and sell. When we moved into our new house she was there to help me unpack, put away and organize. I have moved many times and it can be a very stressful endeavor. But having Shannon by my side, we got all the boxes unpacked and items organized faster than I ever had in the past.

Shannon also helped me plant and decorate in my new garden. She helped me select the flowers to use, went and bought them and then planted them. She also has extensive knowledge about how to take care of many of the plants in my garden. I have already gotten so many compliments on the pots she planted!

She is the whole package! She organizes, prioritizes, has insights and skills that match no other. Very dependable and most importantly trustworthy. She has helped facilitate in clients getting ready to put their houses on the market, to organizing the move, as well as moving into a new house. Whether it’s boxing up, painting, landscaping, or cleaning, Shannon does it all. I highly recommend her to all my clients.

My laundry room was such a disaster I didn't know how to even begin! Shannon entered the room, without judgement, and knew exactly how to approach a task that I've found so daunting, it's been a mess for 20 years! The amount of unrelated items in the room were turned into an attractive, organized and easy to locate system. The room is now an open, functional space that I no longer dread entering. I can't say enough about how pleased I am to have hired Shannon!

As a general contractor, I deal with clients moving both in and out of the houses I remodel. Figuring out how to get furniture and belongings stored or moved for short durations is both overwhelming and stressful for homeowners. Organizing your belongings in a new space is also a challenge. Having someone to organize all of this is beyond helpful and worth every penny. I recommend Shannon to all my clients in this situation and she does an amazing job. I’ve received nothing but glowing remarks from clients who have utilized her services. She’s hard working, professional and gets the job done. She has a handful of services at her control that make all the processes run smoothly. I would definitely recommend Shannon for any organizational needs.

Shannon took care of – better than I could have - a number of things for me. In a short amount of time she prepared my home for showings by getting things hauled away, arranging for handy man work to be done, overseeing outdoor landscaping and interior cleaning, and handling all staging and flower arrangement. She knows what needs to get done and has the proper contacts to help her get the work completed, efficiently. She is very professional and trustworthy; and easy to work with. I will be using her again, as I cannot imagine moving out of my home without her help.

Shannon Duffy’s company was instrumental in my house getting prepared for being put on the market and sold. Her knowledge and experience removed for me the exhausting task of contacting multiple contractors, landscape crews, electricians & painters. Not only did she provide “one stop shopping” on things I needed to accomplish at my house, but she also saved me as much as 35% on expenses vs. what I would have negotiated on my own.

The process begins with a sit down session where you align on objectives of your project. This is followed by a walk through your home to assess the situation at hand, and develop a timeline. Shannon’s service is more than “staging” your property, she helps organize all your belongings from “long/short term storage pieces” to ensuring your “donated items” get to the appropriate charity where they are utilized immediately vs. thrown in a big cart.

Don’t wait until you need to put your house on the market, had I known she had this service, I would have hired her five years ago. I highly recommend her for your moving, & organizational needs. Feel free to contact me directly if you need any more information

Even though our house was in great condition and well decorated, Shannon was able to see our home from a critical buyer’s perspective. She de-cluttered, removed personal objects and rearranged furniture, working her magic. She made our home look more spacious and attractive, even incorporating orchids and re-planting outside pots. Shannon’s attention to detail, and ideas of how to transform rooms, made our home more appealing to potential buyers. I would let her know what you want, listen to her suggestions and then get out of her way. Having Shannon relieved so much stress from the overwhelming house selling process. I would never move again or sell another home without Shannon’s help and expertise.
