The ProsJulie Bertram
The Organizing Pro™ team is led by “The Organizing Pro” herself, Julie Bertram.
Julie started her business in 2001 after 15 years experience in the real estate industry. Many of the skills she and her team employ were developed from the “hands-on” experience Julie received helping clients prepare their properties for marketing. “An orderly home is a huge asset when showing properties to prospective buyers,” Julie asserts. “Over the years it has significantly helped my clients to command top dollar for their homes.” She is also the mother of three children and had to sharpen her organizing skills just to keep all their schedules straight!
Julie has the uncanny ability to quickly assess a client’s needs. She can survey a job and in minutes understand the flow and functionality needed to maximize the client’s efficiency in any situation. “My challenge is to suggest solutions that will not only promote an orderly environment but also work with my clients personality and lifestyle. I want to give them a solution that will last! Just watching the stress melt away after I have set up their custom organizing system gives me great joy and satisfaction! I love getting the phone calls the next day telling me they were able to put their hands right on an item when they needed it!”
Julie also has the skills to turn a dreaded project into a fun experience. None of us wants to think of spending our few precious free moments trying to get organized. That’s why most of us wait until things get really bad before we do it. You have to keep a sense of humor when organizing and Julie can help you make it a positive experience instead of a negative one!
Julie Bertram is a member of NAPO, the National Association of Professional Organizers, Co-founder of Charlotte’s Elite Organizers, Co-founder of Butterfly Bin (a non-profit community clearinghouse) and contributing adviser to real estate, home improvement companies and media.
After serving in various administrative, sales and project management roles within the corporate world, Sharon has found her passion in helping others get and stay organized. A busy mother of two, she knows what it takes to manage the daily influx of information. Managing the paper is one common challenge most moms share.
Over the past several years Sharon gained additional first-hand knowledge in helping parents, grandparents and individuals through illness and life altering events. Some of these events lead to downsizing and/or home sale preparation. All of these experiences have given her a heart for our senior adults and the unique challenges that sometimes arise for them. I had the benefit of a flexible schedule and was available to help care for, and relocate family members. Many families do not have that same flexibility. That is where The Organizing Pro can help fill-in the gaps. Sharon says she was blessed to have worn many different hats throughout her life. "I understand how overwhelming managing a home can be, especially during the challenging times in our lives. It’s never too late for a new beginning."
Born and raised in northern New Jersey, Beth graduated from Rutgers University with a BA in Sociology/Psychology and an AS in Criminology. She and her husband moved to Charlotte in 1999 when he accepted a position with the Charlotte Fire Department. Beth continued her post college career as an office manager for many years where she honed her skills in workplace efficiency and organization before having three beautiful children. She carried her work ethic and passion for order into keeping an organized home where each toy, paper from school, and craft, has its place; helping her to feel orderly, calm, and focused as she goes about her day. When the opportunity presents itself, Beth enjoys spending time outdoors, relaxing at the beach, or hiking in the mountains - enjoying the beautiful weather found here in the south.
