Leigh MacCready and ReNest is a great partner to have when it is time to let go of some of life’s treasures, reorganize and move to a smaller home. For me it seemed like an overwhelming task to face. After the first appointment and consultation, I knew Leigh’s team and resources were what I needed to help me through the process.
Her approach demonstrates much care and compassion to your individual situation. She customizes the process to meet your needs. Her team is very competent, professional and caring. At the end of my process, I had resized my treasures and moved to a smaller home in a senior retirement community.
Leigh helped to accomplish this with a minimal amount of stress, and she had it all organized and decisions so purposely made for me. I was able to say “Welcome to my new home” which was comfortable, settled, organized and ready to begin a new journey. I plan to further engage Leigh when I work on my wardrobe and enhancements to my decorating decisions.
I have no hesitation recommending Leigh and ReNest and her team.

“The physical and supportive services provide by Re-Nest in my move from my home of 47 years to Vista Grande Villa enabled a smooth transition. Decorative help and resource connections now find me happily settled in my new home. I highly recommend.”
“I recently moved back into our home after a renovation, which enabled me to move into a new office space. The space, while lovely, also had a closet that I had to figure out how to make work. As someone who needs piles and is trying to be more organized, I knew that I needed a special organizational professional. I was seeking someone who could both help me understand what types of systems, products, and tools to help me become more organized but also had an aesthetic to help me design the space. I found that amazing combination in Leigh! She helped me figure out how to design my old closet space with shelving, what filing cabinets and organizational tools would meet my needs, and helped me pick out furniture with style. She saved me time by searching for product options and furniture based on the space dimensions and needs, and then we discussed which options were best. I HIGHLY recommend hiring Leigh both to help you figure out your organizational needs and/or help design your space to be lovely.”

Stash it, trash it.

Im glad that I relied on you.
Your kind advice relieved the stress.
Thank you, Leigh, for your Re-Nest!”
“As a single man moving from a home to senior living, I want to express my appreciation for the very professional help and advice offered by Leigh MacCready’s assistance. It made my move very easy with the help of her professional expertise and assistance from selecting new furniture, to arranging the furniture, to helping me select the best of my art and family photos and placing them appropriately in my new apartment, along with many other very helpful suggestions.”

“The decision to downsize, leave your home and establish a new one can be daunting. But from the “to scale” floor plan, utilizing furniture choices to the final touches of organizing kitchen cabinets and hanging clothes and pictures, Re-Nest made my move to Vista Grande Villa stress-less. I highly recommend.”
“Leigh MacCready of Re-Nest LLC has been working with our trust for the past 2 years. We hired her to act as our property manager to coordinate all aspects of getting our family home ready for sale. The house was chock full of keepsakes, old items, junk, etc… Leigh’s unique talents and contacts made her well suited for the job. She formed a team comprising of an estate sale person, contractor and realtor to assist her with this project. Over the past few months her advice and management skills proved invaluable. She kept on top of what other people were doing and provided assistance as needed. I heartily recommend her to any person looking for a professional to organizer a home for sale or to de-clutter your own house.”

“It was great working with Leigh. I wanted to organize my space but knew I just wouldn’t do it despite how many books I’ve read on the subject. I needed someone to hold me accountable. And I don’t like to waste money. Leigh had great ideas based on my needs and she “made me” follow through by working along side me. The woman is motivating (and strong). Leigh also has lots of resources. I learned how good it can feel to let go of “stuff”. Now I can now walk through my basement and find things. I can even park the car in my garage. I’m also less inclined to buy “stuff” because I love the space. There’s more to tackle and I’m actually looking forward to it.”

Leigh’s professionalism and resourcefulness as an organizer, her knowledge of antiques and other valuables, and her connections to other professionals have all been a tremendous help. I recommend her wholeheartedly.”

“Thank you, Leigh, for all you’ve done to help us with this sale. I felt that you had my back all the way through this process. You made yourself readily accessible at all times and you are such an invaluable resource for pricing and all the “how to’s” that kept us going in the days of the sale and the weeks leading up to it.”

“I am sincerely glad that my friend suggested I contact Leigh to help with a family estate sale. The process was arduous at times, but I don’t think the outcome could have been much better, and she was unarguably the driving force that made that so.”

“Re-Nest did a great job organizing and cleaning out our furnace room! The whole place looks neat and organized and I am proud to show it off!”
“The pictures were of great value. I sold many items Leigh listed for me. I’m very pleased; I couldn’t have done it without her.”

“Leigh’s advice was valuable in the setup, display, and pricing of items in our estate sale. Her follow-up throughout the sale was much appreciated. I highly recommend her.”
Estate sale consulting client
“Leigh brings a perfect combination of compassion, task-orientation, and savvy to what could be a depressing and overwhelming task. She helped us clean, sort, and sell a 60-year accumulation of things from my parents’ home in record time. We would not have been able to do it without her.”

“Recently my mother moved from her home of 30 years into a one-bedroom efficiency apartment in a retirement facility. Leigh worked with my mother to take the things that she loves, along with the things she needed, and made it so we were not moving more than what would fit. She drew up the floorplan to scale and then measured all her furniture so she knew exactly where everything would go once it was moved. She helped mom go through all of her clothing, closets, and drawers to select what would fit into her new closets. She staged her cabinets and shelves, took photos so when everything was unboxed we knew exactly where to put it. On move-in day, Leigh was there to meet the movers and immediately started unpacking and organizing. She even hung her art on the walls. Everyone in the facility was blown away at the fact that her apartment was completely set up and all the boxes were emptied by the end of the first day. You would not have known she had just moved in that day!
It made it so nice for my mom, and she said at the end of the day, ‘it feels like home’ This was a big scary change for my mom, and it brought tears to my eyes that she felt at home the first night she was there.
I can’t express enough how blessed we were for all of Leigh’s help! I wished I had known about her services a year ago when I moved! I will call her if I ever have to move again!!”
