When people meet Donna David and learn what she does, they all say “I need you!”
Why? Donna David is a professional lifestyle organization consultant. Her motto “A Decluttered Home Is A Stress-Free Home.”
There are few New Yorkers who live in a decluttered, stress free home and I know this because as a real estate broker in Manhattan, I see so many cluttered homes — even in the most elite of Manhattan apartments.
When thinking about choosing someone to help you with your home and lifestyle organization, it’s important to choose someone who understands you and your lifestyle, your needs and someone who loves what they do.
Anyone can say they’re a professional organizer and many in Manhattan do, but do they really and truly understand you? Are they an expert?
Donna David understands her clients and is an expert. She takes the time to get to know each and every one of her clients. She was born to help people free themselves of “stuff” and focuses on what really matters in their lives.
This past year Donna decided to dedicate herself to what she refers to as the “cause.” She believes that clutter can really have an effect on our personal lives. “It can lead to a reckless mind.”
People who live in Manhattan and the Tri-State are not only overwhelmed with “stuff” but they live busy lives and find themselves asking ‘When will I get to this? When will I find the time? What should I do with this?”
As a young child Donna David was always into keeping spaces neat and clean. Ms. David founded her personal organizing company following a successful career in the luxe realm including Burberry, Saks Fifth Avenue and Bergdorf Goodman.
Her eye for style sparked her passion for developing a variety of practical and easy to use organizational skills that she now customizes for a wide cross section of clients in the New York and Tri State area and makes the end result appear effortless. Clients remark about her innate talent to hone into the necessary items that should remain and what should be removed – a lifestyle solution to each of her clients.
She may be stern with her clients but she’s not like the people you see on these reality shows who forces you get rid of everything. She will however determine what clients don’t need and encourages holding onto only those items where there is a strong personal attachment.
I love her advice to put the things you think you need in a folder or box for three months. If you don’t use them in that time it’s time to get rid of them. She said “It really makes people think. She stresses that when decluttering your mind you save money which is usually spent on frivolous spending.
When brokers and agents walk into people’s homes in Manhattan, you cannot imagine the things people have in their apartments that they didn’t even know they owned. Donna David sees clearly sees this and educates them on knowing what they own and how they can save money.
Donna David does it all. She declutters your mind and your home which opens the door for you to live a stress-free life, save money and have more freedom, time and energy.
Clients hire Donna to organize their busy lives – freeing them from all the clutter so they too can enjoy a life filled with more time, energy and freedom.
That is why people need Donna David!
