‘Having Jeanie here is better than sex!’
‘Jeanie is awesome. She was prompt, professional, affordable and took the chaotic space of two crazed professionals short on time and long on stuff and worked MAGIC! She not only did an enormous amount of physical work but also visualized how we would use space and store stuff and structure constraints around an otherwise ever messy live and work space. Would highly recommend her!’
‘My office is functioning like a dream!! I’m so much more productive and efficient.’
‘’I have a lovely house and hated coming home to it. I couldn’t walk into my ‘walk-in closet’. I wore the same set of a small amount of clothes because I couldn’t find the rest of my wardrobe. The clutter and seeming insurmountable effort to get all this reigned in was overwhelming. I would start to put things away but then would become overwhelmed and distracted and give up after less than an hour. I never made a dent. Emotionally I was connected to much of my clutter and didn’t realize that it was keeping me from blossoming. This affected my new business as a professional photographer because my files were totally disorganized. I realized that it was stultifying me and that I had to get away from the clutter & “hoarding”.
My son who worked with Jeanie previously, gifted me her services. Jeanie calmly identified my most important concerns and helped me prioritize what had to be done. I watched her methodical method of separating the necessary from the stuff I hadn’t looked at in years. She gave me great ideas as to how to condense things that I couldn’t bear to part with and to use modern technology such as scanning to create small photo albums of family pictures & memorabilia. After her first day, I kept walking in & out of my ‘walk-in’ closet, amazed that I actually could walk in and out of that area.
The amount of stuff I donated or got rid of, was so liberating. Jeanie offers her expertise not with judgement, but with humor and compassion. My home now feels like the haven I have always wanted it to be. It is peaceful and organized. Now that is living life fully and without the burden of so much stuff. I highly recommend apartmentjeanie. They are easy to work with and respect the needs of each client without imposing their style or specific way of organizing. She custom tailors each job to the personality of her clients.
apartmentjeanie…thank you for giving me a home I am proud of and love coming back to!’
‘When I met Jeanie my apartment looked like an episode of hoarders – all my belongings were in bags in closets and my apartment was a mess. Jeanie is an angel sent to me. She guided, encouraged and reassured me while rearranging my furniture in a way I never would. She is very professional and really cares about you. My apartment is a real home and I am so happy to have met her. She literally changed my life!’
‘Jeanie really helped me get my room organized & ready for the years of high school to come. She had many creative ideas and understood what I wanted out of the experience. The organization of my desk and closet was the biggest change. Prior to Jeanie, my desk was very cluttered and difficult to do work on, but now it is much easier to focus while doing homework. The organization of my closet made it so much easier to get dressed in the mornings. Thank you Jeanie!’
‘Jeanie is awesome. My new wife and I were dragging our feet for months getting our apartment together, finding it difficult to combine both of our belongings and tastes together and cutting down on the clutter. Jeanie is a pro at knowing how to work with what you already have, on a budget, with an amazing talent for being equally skilled at aesthetics and design, while not compromising on the practical and functional. Highly recommended!’
‘I can’t say enough good things about Jeanie Engelbach & her organizing skills. Our study looked like England after the Norman Conquest. We couldn’t find anything. Jeanie & Cindy cut through all 700 books and all the clutter, rearranging, organizing & staging. Jeanie helped me decide what to keep and what to give up. A few months later I had to stay in bed for weeks after surgery and I got so tired of looking at the same thing every day I had Jeanie and Cindy return. They rearranged everything in the living room and I mean everything including moving all the pictures. It looked like a new place. We were so happy with the results. Last week, they came again and did their organizing tricks. Jeanie gave me file after file (we had folders that dated back to 1992) to shred. We ended giving over 15 boxes of clothes, towels, quilts, books and a chest of drawers to the Salvation Army. In addition, Jeanie and Cindy rearranged all the furniture and pictures in our guest apartment. I was amazed at what could be done to make the place look fresh and new. By all means, there is no reason to live with clutter or clothes that you haven’t worn in years. apartmentjeanie will give your home a new a new look & feel.’
“I visited a previous job that Jeanie and her team had finished and I was amazed how it quickly it was done. I made an appointment for a consultation and I asked for suggestions to eliminate the cluttered, an estimate of the cost and if it could be finished the time framed I needed. She is very professional to worked with. All together I can highly recommend Jeanie, she can do so much to make the place very nice.”
“My husband and I worked with Jeanie as a design consultant for our apartment. We were an absolute mess when we started. As newlyweds living together for the first time, we had no idea how to combine our different styles and households. Jeanie asked all the hard questions and really got us thinking about what our shared vision should be. She guided us through all of the planning and design decisions with patience and just the right amount of prodding. In addition to her design services, she helped us figure out what to keep and what to toss and even took us shopping to find us exactly what we needed.
We now have a comfortable, organized and well designed home and could not have done it without Jeanie’s expertise.”
“Jeanie provided me with a phone consultation to help me rearrange furniture my teeny tiny living room. I was having trouble getting things in an orientation that both looked good and made sense with the furniture.
I sent Jeanie some photos of the room to review. In an hour long phone conversation, she outlined the broad strokes of her ideas for the room. There were some unexpected changes, and at first I wasn’t sure if I’d follow through. I decided to try everything she suggested; if I didn’t like it, I could always change it back!
I’m so glad I followed Jeanie’s suggestions to the T. The room is much more streamlined and everyone compliments my apartment! Now I’m proud of my teeny tiny space. I’d definitely recommend Jeanie’s services.”
“Jeanie was amazingly helpful at organizing an apartment’s worth of closets and accessories for perhaps the two most disorganized people on earth. She was resourceful and knew how to tightly organize clothing, shoes, jewelry, accessories, within a tight budget and while making things look presentable. She also was super creative on using empty wall space to display things that were otherwise just sitting around. I was pregnant at the time and certainly in a nesting mode and having Jeanie there definitely put my mind at ease. Whew! I’d highly recommend Jeanie for anyone looking to creatively organize spaces or using space more efficiently.”
“In 15 minutes apartmentjeanie made a lasting difference at my house!”
“Jeanie is amazing!!! She transformed my apartment from what looked like a boring Ethan Allen decorated apartment to a fun and hip one of a 28 year old. She used all of the things I had but rearranged them in ways I would have never imagined on my own – creating gorgeous decor out of my own things. Two of my favorite aspects are the hanging all of my necklaces to create a jewelry wall and another for my handbags. I love jewelry and bags and they had been hiding in a closet instead of using them to decorate the apartment. I LOVE my apartment now. It is not cluttered and it is adorable and it is all thanks to Jeanie and her incredible imagination and taste.”
“With Jeanie’s careful eye and tireless determination, we were able to sort thought piles of clutter that had been accumulating in forgotten pockets of our home. Within a few days, Jeanie helped us get organized, recover misplaced possessions, re-purpose, and redistribute just about everything in our home. We felt like we had a brand new apartment.”
“Jeanie is a pool of endless creative ideas. She is a wizard at making the most of a space (large or small) and she executes the client’s desires with precision and style. Her professional and creative suggestions are sure to make the end result more satisfying than the starting concept.”
“I honestly didn’t think there was a solution for the madness going on in my closets but then came apartmentjeanie! When Jeanie sees chaos, she automatically comes up with an amazing solution. My closets and apartment are organized perfectly, better than I could have imagined in my dreams! This is the best investment! By relieving all the clutter, apartmentjeanie has changed my life and relieved so much stress! I am the biggest fan ever. Jeanie is so pleasant to work with. I highly recommend working with apartmentjeanie and organizing your life!“
“apartmentjeanie makes a room seem new and different. Jeanie’s work is so fun, colorful and organized! She even creates a space just for the family pet. I can’t wait until I have my own apartment, so I can have Jeanie make it awesome.”
“I contracted apartmentjeanie to decorate my very small apartment. I am extremely impressed with her ability to transform a bland tiny rental into a true home. Her attention to every little detail pulls the whole place together. apartmentjeanie is very creative with rental friendly techniques and the space she has to work with. She has an impressive ability to work with and into the decor of my previously purchased furniture. Her vision is simply incredible and how she translates that into a livable and gorgeous space is truly impressive. I am extremely happy with how my apartment has been turned into my home reflecting my taste, style and personality so harmoniously. Thank you apartmentjeanie!”
“Jeanie is the best! She came to my house and helped me with creative organization solutions (hide all those phone cords! add a cork board to the side of your bookshelf! declutter your decorative shelving!). She suggested simple, effective organizational solutions that I’d never thought of before. And was so friendly, helpful and judgment-free in the face of my clutter!
I highly recommend apartmentjeanie.”
“Jeanie’s creative insight took my unused living room furnishings rearranged it and made it a warm, comfortable and inviting space in 10 minutes. Her outside the box thinking took a mish-mosh collection of bowls and vases and made them artwork. Thank you Jeanie!!”
“Jeanie is able to organize a diverse collection of one’s “collectables” and blend them in with the rest of a room’s furnishings. What was once a cluttered mess becomes a pulled together space.
She has shown this especially by organizing our books with the rest of the tchotchkes. Now, I can actually find things and more importantly, I will be able to keep everything neat myself.”
“Jeanie gave me great, creative and fun ideas for my New Jersey shore house. She is a delight to work with and makes the “chore” of decorating FUN! Her choice of colors, window treatments, artwork and accessories helped me change my existing furnishings into a totally new, bright, chic and unique setting. I love my new environment and my friends are WOWED when they visit. Thank you Jeanie for sharing your exceptional talent, wit and style with me.”
“My apartment has never looked so organized! Jeanie is a genius organizer who also has a wonderful aesthetic eye. My apartment is now both organized and beautiful! Looking forward to tackling future projects with Jeanie.”
“Have you ever OPENED your closet to show off how neat and organized it is when guests come over? I do. Really, I do! And it’s all because of Jeanie!
The closet was a thorn in my side, a true heartache, a flat out complete wreck. It got to the point where I simply couldn’t move forward with anything in my life until that closet was tackled, then apartmentjeanie came to the rescue. By day’s end I had a gorgeous closet that was superbly organized and I felt fabulous! Jeanie is truly a Master of her trade!
After living in my condo for 4 years, I booked Jeanie, who re-arranged my furniture and accessories and she told me what to ditch and what to add. I followed her directions and compliments on my place have been following me ever since! Recently, when I ‘inherited’ pieces from my parents’ downsizing, Jeanie came back to re-decorate and amazed me once again. Friends and family can’t wait to come see what she has done when they know Jeanie has been in town for a session. She is truly gifted!”
“apartmentjeanie is fabulous. Jeanie takes a space and makes it work, not just for myself, but my whole family. Her imagination and creativity are amazing. She has the ability to take a diverse assortment and style of home furnishings and create a fluid and cohesive look. She worked on my home in New Jersey, then years later when we moved to Florida. The furniture and accessories were the same, but Jeanie was able to make them feel fresh and new. She can take a shoe-string budget and make it look like a million dollars.”
“Jeanie organized our South Africa photos and made us a beautiful album. It was a memorable trip and the album captures the essence of what made it so. My husband & I are thrilled with it and plan to have Jeanie make albums of future trips.”
“Jeanie is amazing!”
‘I loved working with Jeanie. She new exactly what she wanted and was well prepared for her photo shoot. Jeanie’s style is a wonderful mix of fun and super organized and so is she!’
“I felt queasy and doubtful as Jeanie emptied the entire contents of my closet: 10 years worth of photography equipment, boxed and loose prints, negatives and slides, and a haphazard mass of photo paraphernalia. With a firm but gentle hand Jeanie guided me through deciding what should stay and what should go and then she swiftly organized everything! In one afternoon she did what I was unable to accomplish in 3 years. Plus, so much more! Money well spent is an understatement!”
“Jeanie is the most organized woman I know! She’s meticulous, detail oriented and tackles piles better than anyone I know. I highly recommend her.”
“Jeanie is the best! She came to my house and guided me through a major scrapbook project and showed me how to make a really stunning, high quality memento book.”
“Jeanie is so well organized, creative and pleasant to work with. She grasped quite quickly what I wanted and created such beautiful albums with the pictures she had to work with. Even with our large family Jeanie began to know who belonged to whom, not an easy task, and to make helpful suggestions for themes for the books and/or how to group within each book.
I look forward to working with her to complete this large project and would recommend photo-jeanie highly to any prospective client.”
“photojeanie was such a creative and helpful way to get all those photos that I had piling up organized so that my family and I could enjoy them. photojeanie makes it so easy. When you get your photo albums back, you will wonder what took you so long to use photojeanie.”
“photojeanie has totally organized print memories and press clippings, so that I can add to it without being thrown back into chaos and paper clutter – an awesome service.”
“Jeanie is a pleasure to work with! A true professional and very talented. Her photo albums are beautiful and unique.”
“photojeanie takes organization to a new level. Jeanie comes up with ideas I never would have thought of. I had ten years worth of photos in bags and she turned them into a work of art. Now when I have a project, I look forward to working with Jeanie and seeing what she will do with it.”
“As an excited newlywed, I couldn’t wait for the arrival of my wedding album. I had high hopes that it would be beautiful because I was well informed about Jeanie’s creative talents. Well, when we opened our album, I was shocked that she designed something more beautiful, personal and subtly chronicled than I could have imagined. It was superb and the album quickly became the centerpiece of conversation for many gatherings at my home.”
“Jeanie Engelbach has an expert eye for organization and a true gift for understated elegance. As originally produced by our photographer, our wedding album was a mish-mash of photographs. Jeanie brought order. Her choice and juxtaposition of the photos gave the album a lovely flow. This project was handled in a timely and professional way.”
“The talents of photojeanie always measure up. Jeanie creates family keepsakes out of family photographs. Her creative eye and organizational capabilities elevate whatever you give her. She makes it easy to do what you want to do with your most treasured photographs.”
—Claire Eckert, Bernardsville, NJ
“Very professional, easy to work with, capable, organized and of course sooo artistic.”
“partyjeanie can make a normal party turn into an event to remember. Jeanie’s ability to incorporate every tiny detail into a well thought out theme is astounding. Not only does she make beautiful table tops, hand-made party favors and exceptionally designed invitations, she will think of all sorts of elements that go into developing the heart and soul of a party. Lighting, themed menus & cocktails, tailor-made games, specially made posters & signs, curated playlists, floral design… the list goes on! And the best part is that she will happily work within your budget and even use your own items in new and exciting ways. I would definitely recommend partyjeanie to anyone who wants their party to be “the” party people will talk about for years to come.
“partyjeanie throws such a great event that even my aloof and anti-social dog, shockingly loosened up and had the best time at her dog’s birthday party. It was not only memorable for him, but the adults had just as much fun. Jeanie’s sense of taste from the decorations to the food always guarantees a good time!”
“What partyjeanie created for my bridal shower was breathtaking. To this day people still talk about the party. The way she combines personal items and works them into the table decor is amazing. Each flower was strategically placed and every centerpiece looked totally different. No one else could have orchestrated what Jeanie did for me on such a special day.”
“We entrusted our engagement party to Jeanie Engelbach and we were truly amazed as she really went above and beyond. No detail was overlooked. Jeanie really understood our whole wedding theme and made sure that came through at our engagement party by incorporating our wedding colors into the decor and tablescape. She organized a party that truly represented our personality as a couple as well as incorporating unique traits of both of us as individuals. Jeanie really is the partyjeanie.”
“The partyjeanie concept and mission is not only creatively entertaining but right in line with feng shui principles by using already available items in the home for entertaining. Nothing says ‘welcome to my space’ like the use of items that reflect your style and energy. That’s the magic of a partyjeanie event. Bravo!”
“I have had the privilege of attending several parties planned by partyjeanie and each one was a marvel of sumptuous displays of food and beverages with unique decorative details that relayed not only the theme of the occasion but the personality of the guest/s of honor as well. What’s more, her brilliant DIY ideas kept the parties within budget.”
“Jeanie’s party planning is well thought out, colorful, quirky, and cupcake filled. She has a great sense of what makes a party fun.”
“I was a guest at a partyjeanie planned “Dinner & Murder Party”. My party going experience was completely transformed from the very moment I stepped in the door. I didn’t just walk into a ‘theme party’, I was literally transformed back in time! The attention to detail was impeccable. The lighting, decorative accessories and background music were all on point. Guests sipped on speakeasy type cocktails in vintage glasses and happily noshed on tasty snacks that were not only “to die for” delicious but were also easy to eat while circulating in the crowd…and they were era appropriate! Even the recipes rang true. How fun is that?
Overall, it was a party I never forgot. Festive & fun with twists of unique and exquisite details that only Jeanie could pull off.”
“You want the best you got the best…..Who do you want to creatively plan your life… one answer its Jeanie….full stop. From parties, decorating and special skills when it comes to photography organization there is no one else you need to call. She is the best at what she does!!’’
“Jeanie is extremely organized, dedicated and personable. As a highly skilled professional, she has the ability to focus her range of talent gracefully and successfully to the task at hand – large or small.”
