Elaine Fernando, Owner

Elaine Fernando of Organized Transitions LLC

Having earned her degree in Economics and a Masters in Finance from Columbia University, Elaine spent 25 years on Wall Street working for international investment banking firms. Traversing the chaotic arena of high finance, travelling extensively for work and running a household of 4, she was able to hone personal and professional organizational skills and absolutely loved it! Elaine is also well versed in planning and executing projects in both a team environment and one-to-one; all the while listening carefully to clients’ needs to both grow and maintain relationships.

Fast forward to deciding on a career change! While discussing how her past vocation would benefit a future venture, a friend suggested pursuing professional organization. Since she loves working with others and finding creative solutions to problems, Elaine jumped at the chance, and Organized Transitions LLC® was born! It is a NJ based company that specializes in organizing homes, businesses and estates; as well as national and worldwide move management.

Now, she can still enjoy travel when working with clients to identify their needs, establish goals, and implement action plans. This provides the ultimate framework for economical and practical solutions that help maintain the positive work results clients seek to accomplish and best of all find … BLISSFUL LIVING!

Testimonials

We couldn’t have done our move without Elaine and her excellent team. She helped in the preplanning so that we had a general idea on timing and move strategy. We were relocating in two stages. From our home in NJ to temporarily stay in our vacation home allowing our broker to sell the house without us impacting her and vice versa. Migrate our household items to a new apartment, our vacation home, and a new storage unit. She then helped fill gaps in our resources, in disposing of unwanted items, patching walls per broker’s request and doing a complete professional cleanup of the house. The result was impressive. We met our move budget, we moved on time with minimal stress and disruption. I’m hoping not to move for at least a few years but if I do my first call will be to Elaine.

If anyone is looking for a professional organizer, I would like to personally recommend Elaine Laluyan Fernando with Organized Transitions LLC. I hired Elaine to organize my closet and she did an amazing job. I came home from work and everything was organized, sorted & labeled. It is such a wonderful feeling to have an organized home!

Elaine is professional, efficient and organized (obviously). It is a great gift to give yourself or a friend who is moving, having a baby, etc. Highly recommend.

Elaine from Organized Transitions is the best!!! She is caring, professional, and meticulous with every aspect of the job. I can not say enough about how amazing she is as a person, and I recommend her to anyone looking for help with moving or getting better organized in your home or office.

Elaine is amazing!! She saved my life during a recent move. My plans changed very last minute. I was moving from an apartment into my first house and I haven’t even began to pack, with 2 days to move, I called Elaine/Organized Transitions in an absolute panic and boy did she come to my rescue! Everything was so neatly packed and labeled. It was the bast decision I ever made, because unpacking was actually enjoyable and took me 1/4 of the time then it would have if I packed myself. She kept everything neat and you can tell she really took care of all my things. I would recommend her in a second-its the best decision you’ll ever make, especially when going thru a move, or transition, which is already enough stress in itself!! Definitely call them today-they will change your world!!

Elaine is efficient, reliable and caring. Weather it’s a move or a simple need to organize I am sure there is no better then someone like Elaine that does the job with honesty and compassion.

As an empty nester, downsizing can be difficult. One of dilemmas was to figure out where I was going to place all my precious photos albums in my new , smaller, home. Elaine was highly recommended to me by a friend who is also a professional organizer. She was so helpful in consolidating my photos albums, over 20 in total, since high school! With many photos and pages notwithstanding the years, it was a great way to preserve my photo memories and consolidate them into smaller storage space. All my photos are now on an external hard drive , and Elaine carefully placed all the photos that were stuck in albums into a legacy box for storage and preservation. Tedious work, but Elaine doesn’t mind. In fact she enjoyed seeing my life unfold in photos and was a little sad when the project came to a close. She is trustworthy, meticulous, and professional and I highly recommend her for organizing your life’s memories and papers!
