Authenticity 101

Bungalow - St Clair East and O’Connor, Toronto

15 hour contract included kitchen, basement storage area, garage

In Client’s Words
Hiring Lianne was one of my better decisions. I was feeling overwhelmed by my kitchen, my garage was an embarrassment and all of my storage felt like it was bursting at the seams. Initially, I thought that I simply didn’t have time to do this so I would hire Lianne to do it for me. But it became much more than that. There is absolutely no way that I could have accomplished everything Lianne did in the time that she did it. That woman has a gift, and she enjoys this! Lianne has solutions for organization, she is highly efficient and she is respectful and flexible. I feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders.
