Organizing Your Home to Show & Sell
If you're putting your house on the market, you need to know how to make your house stand out from the competition. (And, if you're not selling, you can still learn a lot about how to make your house an edited space where you can relax and enjoy!) 
Linda has helped many sellers bring organization to their homes when the decision has been made to sell. So, based on this long experience and also on detailed input from many realtors, she developed this popular lecture. Learn about the effects of "clutter" in the sales process and how to organize your space so a buyer will love it!

Comments from some of our seminar participants:

Linda Goldman's "Getting Organized" morning program at the Winnetka Woman's Club was a resounding hit. Linda is a warm and engaging speaker -- and not all theory, either. She has many practical, simple strategies and tips to avoid clutter, leading you to a harmonious home! We learned how to gauge our actual needs, and avoid some common traps of having our posssessions possess us. Nearly everyone in the audience went home and tried something Linda suggested -- and the reports on reslults were so positive.

Linda, in clearing old emails I ran across your notes from Organizing Your Home to Show And Sell. Just thought I'd let you know that we sold our house in 3 weeks (with all the snow and no Broker's Open House). Your class and input really helped.

I am the lone male who attended your "Organizing Your Paper" seminar. I enjoyed the class and, thanks to you, now have an outline for solving my paper problem. Like all cures, it will only work if I follow it and apply the principles you outlined for us. Again, thank you very much and I felt the class was really worthwhile.

On behalf of the Harper School PTO, thank you for speaking at our meeting last month. Organizing our children’s things (or even our own) is a challenging task for most of us. You offered useful guidelines and humorously helped us realize how we might even be reluctant to clean and purge. I myself came away with several specific ideas and others commented that they were glad they attended your presentation. Incidentally, I saw the positive article in the North Shore magazine. We were fortunate to have you speak.

Linda, many thanks for joining Southern Alliance’s February Luncheon. The feedback that I received was that your presentation was a big hit. Your talk was excellent and was well received by all. Also, your handout was very informative and I think that everyone took home a lot of information they will be able to use. In addition, you could not have been nicer – you were very easy going and pleasant to work with.
Again, thanks much

You were a dynamic speaker who made a dry subject (organizing) into something fun and interesting. So many of the members came up to me after the program and told me how much they enjoyed it. I will definitely be recommending you to the other woman's groups.

I was at a low point when I found your class at New Trier Extension (about two years ago). It really helped me a lot, so thank you! The expertise you shared that day, as well as the tips in your newsletter have helped to get me on a much better track than where I had been. I have recommended the class to several friends since then. Keep up the good work.

Thanks for the informative and wonderful class. I am at home and looking forward to tackling my paper, which really makes me happy!  And, depending how I get along, may be calling you in for additional consulting. Thanks again, you were extremely helpful and I learned a lot in a short amount of time!

I can’t tell you how many people have thanked me for having you present to us today. People really got a lot of tips and are eager to go home and use them. Thank you for giving all of us the boost we need to start applying your ideas to our everyday life. It was a wonderful start to our Lunch and Learn sessions.
