One of the many questions we have received over the years is why we label our organizers as “Expert Organizers” instead of “Professional Organizers”.
No, we are not trying to be different.
No, we are not trying to stand out from the crowd.
No, we are not coining our own term to distinguish ourselves from others.
We are simply offering a service to our customers that exceeds that of just being a professional. Instead, we opt to be experts in the field of organization. Because who doesn’t want to hire someone who is the number one expert in their industry?
The Definition of An Expert
Let’s scale back to the true definition of what an expert is:
According to Dictionary.com, an expert is defined as “a person who has special skill or knowledge in some particular field; specialist; authority”.
An expert organizer is that exact translation. Expert organizers are there to help their clients create order with or without them present. An expert is someone who is decisive and goal-oriented for the client and the client’s needs, focusing on the best solutions for someone in their spaces.
An expert is someone who is professional, non-judgmental, and capable of effective problem-solving. Expert organizers are decision facilitators. They help clients with the decision-making process by sorting things to help the client see the value, or lack of value, in the things they own.
The Difference Between An Expert & A Professional
The main difference between a Professional Organizer and an Expert Organizer is that a Professional is someone who gets paid for a service, while an Expert is someone who has distinguished themselves in their field through education and experience.
As Expert organizers, we have established our credibility and developed our skills through training; both in the field and through educational courses.
