Chicago Organized Home is dedicated to providing home organizing services and assistant services for your happy home! Our clients inspire us and we tailor our services to meet each client’s unique needs. Organizing is not only a passion, but a craft with continuous learning and new ways to solve each challenge. Our goal is to restore balance, order and happiness back into your home.

We hope you will see that we are unique and unlike any other service you may find. Here’s what we offer that the others don’t!

We’ve been in business since 2008, long before the “me too” competition chimed in. We have a dedicated management team with corporate backgrounds and client service experience, and who have a history of successfully managing teams. We can make experienced recommendations about how to best handle your project needs.

Being a Professional Organizer requires a particular skill set and training. We receive ongoing training through NAPO, the National Association of Professional Organizers, as well as The Container Store, from our unique relationship as an Independent Representative and through their in-store classes.

We are not a one-woman show. We are a team. We’ve grown from stellar referrals and word of mouth—not from paid advertising. We do most of our work in small teams, as projects go much faster and give you quicker results. Do you really want one person sitting in your house for days on end? Probably not. Working as a team is more efficient and usually takes less billable hours in total than having one person chip away at your project over a long stretch of time.
Simply put, we can do the whole project. You’ll never hear us say, “That’s not our job,” or “We don’t do that.” We think through the entire project end-to-end and offer you as much assistance as you need.

For example, if we are purging items together, we don’t leave you with a pile of garbage bags that you have to find the time to lug over and donate. We can take them at the end of our session, donate them and get you a receipt. It might sound simple, but most services will not do this for you.

The goal is for you to explain what you need and then for us to take it from there. We handle all the details of your moving and relocation, organizing, and other assistant services. We handle the things that might not go as planned. You should not expect to receive a dozen calls and emails from us nagging you throughout your workday. We can problem-solve.

About Pamela Sherman

Pamela Sherman spent nearly a decade as a Client Services manager at some of the top advertising agencies in Chicago, including Leo Burnett. Her demanding career meant that her work/life balance was nonexistent and inspired her to create Chicago Anytime Assistants in 2008. The goal was to create a trusted resource to manage life’s daily “to do’s” so clients could focus on their family, career, friends, travel and whatever else they find important.

Time is a precious commodity and Pamela has always found great joy in being able to give her clients something so valuable. As a personal assistant, Pamela often found herself stationed in her clients’ homes supervising household tasks, such as waiting for the cable guy or other service and deliveries. Always wanting to add value, she started organizing spice drawers, closets and cabinets to keep busy during idle time between appointments. Pretty soon clients started asking her to come over just to organize! Over the years, home organizing quickly grew into one of the most requested services and became a passion for Pamela and the team. In 2015, the Chicago Organized Home brand was created with this much-needed focus in mind. Later that year, The Container Store came calling and invited Chicago Organized Home into their Contained Home™ program. Today, Chicago Organized Home is the leading home organizing service in the Chicagoland area.

Pamela is thrilled and inspired to have found a team as dedicated as she is to solving life’s challenges and living a more organized life.

Pamela has a BS in business from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio.

A few of Pamela’s favorite things:

  • Traveling—any trip, any time!
  • Live music at outdoor venues
  • Playing (and organizing!) Legos with her two boys

While studying at DePaul University’s Theatre School in 2011, Hannah was tasked with organizing thousands of costumes in the storage department.

She understands the stress that clutter can bring, and comes to each project with understanding and compassion.

Her favorite part of any project is getting to see her clients react to their newly organized home! Their responses are priceless and incredibly rewarding!
