Abundance Organizing, a startup that helps clients clean up everything from small messes to cases of extreme hoarding, expanded last week to Charlottesville.
The new office, near Barboursville, Va., will be the third location for the three-year-old company, which also has a branch in Kansas City.
Co-founder Mindy Godding said that although Charlottesville is smaller than Richmond, there should be enough work to keep the company’s newest organizer busy.
“We’re able to tackle some of the more challenging projects,” Godding said. “There are a few smaller companies that work in the area, but that’s something that’s really missing in the market.”
Godding said the Richmond office has been growing since the company’s 2012 appearance on TLC’s “Hoarding: Buried Alive.” They’ve hired two additional consultants and average about 18 projects a week. An in-home consultation, which includes a written plan to stay organized, costs $225
Abundance provides quick, one-time consultation and long-term counseling – all depending on the mess.
“Some of our organizers have been seeing the same clients for more than eight years,” she said.
And more growth is in the works, Godding said. The company is eyeing locations in New Orleans and Denver, but with no firm timeline.
