You and your team did an amazing job Rosalind! Organized, items sold, home cleaned and staged in less than 3 weeks. And my father moved comfortably into his new suite at the retirement home. Thank you so much. A rare combination of efficiency and compassion.

Rosalind can make a very overwhelming experience, seem easy and simple. She will take a seniors overstuffed home, and downsize it to a ready to move home in days. Her team knows how to work with the seniors, so they don't feel like they are being run over by staff. I highly recommend Rosalind and her company to anyone looking to downsize a home very full of stuff!

Rosalind has been an invaluable source in assisting me in the space management and design requirements for my new condominium.
Rosalind is a great people person capable of bringing good people to the project.
She is a good listener and came to understand just what I was looking for before moving forward on commitments. And she is fast and brilliant at the unique art of space management.

Your amazing skills and talent for downsizing, restructuring and staging pale in comparison with your ability to empathize, comfort and support those who are going through those emotional transitions.

I think an excess of stuff is pretty common to busy families with two kids, two careers, and a house that’s on the smaller side. I least I hope it is…
You spend a lot of time moving your “stuff” around, trying to figure out where you’ll put it. You promise yourself that someday, when you have more time, you’ll do something to address the abundance of stuff that’s overflowing in your house.
Someday never comes.
Overrun by toys and books and bits of appliances we don’t even own anymore, we knew we needed help. We called Rosalind Tantalo and within days, her team at Simply Home came to the rescue.
When someone else has gotten to the bottom of the chaos and sorted it out, making the decision of what stays and what goes is much less daunting. Our small space just works now, and with the systems in place to manage toys and filing and the kitchen items we use every day, keeping it orderly is a breeze.
It’s easy to get overwhelmed at the prospect of getting a handle on the clutter. Simply Home made it a pain-free process. I highly recommend the experience to anyone!

Rosalind worked with one of my clients on the heels of their very bad experience with another agency. What a world of difference! Rosalind's standards are of the highest order and her ability to anticipate my client’s needs were amazing. My client was especially pleased with her special touches and attention to detail. Her positive and take charge attitude are a comfort to those feeling overwhelmed. I cannot recommend anyone more highly than Rosalind & Simply Home.

It was a pleasure working with Rosalind and her team when we moved out of our home for renovations. Everyone was patient and understanding, which was really important when moving with a family. And when we unpacked in our temporary home, all was intact. Everything was packed so well that everything survived the move. I will definitely use Rosalind again when we move back into our home.

Ros has been a tremendous help to me and my family. She is highly professional, reliable and committed to service excellence. She approaches her work with tremendous sensitivity and creativity. Her very pleasant, supportive and positive nature make her a pleasure to be with and to have in one's home. I would unequivocally recommend Ros.

From our first introduction we felt comfortable with Rosalind. She presented herself as a reliable, capable person who, when she was given information, was careful to take notes. She spent an ample amount of time making sure she was clear on our needs. She familiarized herself with a thorough inventory prior to giving us a quote.
When we signed on the dotted line and the work began we were even more impressed. The Simply Home team arrived promptly, were polite and immediately went to work. Their organizational methods were superior and they worked steadily, efficiently.
Another crew went to my husband's shop and proceeded in the same fashion. We unwittingly caused a couple of delays and Rosalind came to our rescue each time making sure we had everything we needed to expedite each snag.
We would not hasten to recommend Rosalind and we would most definitely call them again for services, in a heartbeat.

For years, I thought I could organize my stuff by myself. With bulging storage spaces from an international move and downsizing into the Toronto market, I didn't even know how to get started.
I saw Rosalind's ad in a local paper and, intrigued by the free in-home consultation, called and set up an appointment. I was immediately put at ease by her friendly, pleasant demeanor, and we went over the problem areas I wanted to tackle. We set up a plan and got to work.
Rosalind has a great deal of patience and persistence in tackling even the most disorganized spaces. She helped me sort and discard/recycle the items i didn't need, taking them away with her at the end of the day. Everything got sorted, labelled, and organized so that I had easy access to craft stuff in my studio, and all the home maintenance stuff stashed in my laundry room and basement storage areas. We also decluttered my living-dining room and she came up with some excellent ideas about rearranging the space. She arranged for items to be consigned or sold on local buy-sell sites, taking the pictures and organizing transportation as needed.
Out of this came a chance to see my space anew, and i was able to contract a renovation to better enjoy my living space. Feeling the weight of too much stuff lift from my shoulders also encouraged me to start a (body) weight loss program and I'm 3/4 of the way to my goal weight.
I can unreservedly recommend Simply Home and look forward to working with her again in the future.

I have worked with Rosalind on several occasions now. I have called her to action, when preparing to market and move, most especially, those left behind by a departed companion. In such cases the task, confronting the Owner, appeared to be daunting and overwhelming. Rosalind's salient quality is her empathy and the kind and caring manner in which she, and her team, relieved the Owner of both the emotional stress and physical endeavor of "putting their house in order".
