Operating the Subprime Lending Group of Texas, Tonia managed a myriad of details working with more than 100 loan officers in the Houston and Dallas areas.
Tonia’s desire to use her organizational gifts and skills to help others increased. In 2004, she turned her passion into a reality and committed to her professional organizing career full time.
Even her hobbies incorporate orderliness and organization. She loves to scrapbook and handcraft greeting cards. She enjoys exploring the world through travel and routinely exercising with yoga and Pilates.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Running Sorted Out hasn’t always been smooth sailing. In the service industry, it’s always a challenge to explain the value. Especially, the benefits of professional organizing services. Many people calling in or searching around on the internet don’t even know what a Professional Organizer does. With many years of branding and trying new and different things, I have learned clients value their time just as we do. If I can show them how much time I can save them by being more organized whether it’s in the home or business, ultimately, it’s a win/win. Most of the time we can save clients hundreds if not thousands of dollars by showing them more efficient ways of being organized. It’s been a tough business to be able to demonstrate this, so we’ve come up with great processes to communicate the value to our clients from the beginning!
So, as you know, we’re impressed with Sorted Out – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
