Better Together

 

Our mission is to make your home

an oasis for you and your family.

We met while working for a moving concierge company. As we began working together, we realized that we not only worked well together, we both developed great admiration and respect for each other's talent, skill, and work ethic.

Alcova Home has been a dream come true for both of us. We strive to remove as much stress from your life as we can. We are so proud and excited to have the opportunity to work with you to create the home you always wanted.

Organizing has been an innate part of who I am since I was a toddler. I fell in love with all the parts of what makes a house a home, including the organization and tidiness. After graduating college, it was quite serendipitous how organizing fell into my life, a natural talent turned career. I quickly fell in love with working with people in their homes. Getting to know the clients, forming trusting and lasting relationships and of course making their space less stressful and putting a smile on their face.

I was born in Guatemala and from an early age I have had a passion for interior design and home organization. Soon after arriving in my new country I became a nanny and continued to work as a nanny for many years, this gave me an insight into the busy lives of the American family. I learned through the many families who welcomed me into their home that while each family had different needs, and lifestyles one thing they shared in common was their desire to spend more time with their loved ones and less time stressing out about the upkeep of a home. Sadly more often than not, I saw a family overwhelmed by chaos, and disorganization, too many toys, clutter closets, pantries overstocked.
