Karlee Alves is the co-owner of 2B Organized® and franchise owner of 2B Organized® Sacramento. She absolutely loves her work, in fact her passion for organizing and entrepreneurial spirit started at a very young age!
Karlee vividly remembers visiting her friends’ homes as a kid and reorganizing kitchens, pantries, laundry rooms, and bedrooms (#favoritehouseguest). She also rearranged and organized her own bedroom frequently, down to color-coding her closet. Growing up, Karlee also loved watching Martha Stewart, Trading Spaces, and The Apprentice. It’s obvious to see that business and home organization have always been in Karlee’s blood.
With dreams of owning her own business one day, Karlee pursued and graduated with a degree in Business Finance from California State University, Sacramento. Karlee’s first entrepreneurial venture was owning and operating her own insurance agency, but in 2018, Karlee realized she wasn’t doing work she loved. After hours of researching the exciting and growing home organizing industry, Karlee found 2B Organized®. Eventually, Karlee became a co-owner and opened her location in Sacramento. She hasn’t looked back since.
Today, Karlee resides in El Dorado Hills with her husband and business partner John, who owns John Alves Real Estate Group and is also a co-owner of 2B Organized®. Together, they have three beautiful daughters. In Karlee’s free time, she enjoys planning the next great party, redecorating her home, exploring new cities, getting in a fun and challenging workout, and spending time with her family and friends.
- I began my college career pursuing a degree in Hospitality Management. However, I found that I would best be able to serve myself and others with a different skill set, and made the switch to Business Finance.
- I’m one of the pickiest eaters you’ll ever meet! Chicken tenders from the kid’s menu? Yes, please!
- I’m always looking for ways to challenge myself physically! I ran long-distance track in high school, and today enjoy lighter runs, cycling, and life as a yogi. I’m very proud of my handstand skills!
- Keep it simple! In an ideal world, everything would be perfectly folded and put away at all times, but the reality is, we’re often lucky to get the laundry done at all. Set yourself up for success by being realistic about the systems that will truly be sustainable for you and your family. Give yourself some GRACE, it doesn’t have to be perfect at all times or during specific seasons of life.
- Set up a donation bin in your home! Add outgrown clothes or unused items to this bin, so you can easily make a donation run when you’re ready—giving back to yourself and others.
- Your home might just benefit from its very own “lost + found!” Having a designated location for all the left-behind items that need to go back to their owners, will keep lost items from piling up on your treasured surface space.
- A lazy susan! Both divided and non-divided styles can instantly up-level a variety of spaces in your home.
- A beautiful basket, or two, or 20! I just love a great basket—it not only provides much needed storage, but it can also provide the perfect decorative touch to your favorite spaces.
- A trash bag! Let’s face it, we all have TOO much stuff. On a weekly basis you’ll find me walking around my house with a trash bag in hand, tossing out unusable and unneeded items. This routine provides me with a sense of accomplishment and creates a more calm environment for my household.
words from my clients:
I hired Karlee, the owner, to help one of our sellers (I’m a realtor) move. My poor seller was a complete wreck with her husband transferred in L.A & she was up here with 4 small kids trying to get ready so I could put the house on the market. Well we really thought it would take at least 2 weeks since there were piles everywhere. Karlee came in & was never a bit flustered. She completely overhauled the entire home & did it all in 3 short days. We got on the market faster & also got multiple offers, over asking because it showed so well. Then we hired her to move our office. We seriously had piles & dumped them in the middle of our room. She worked tirelessly all through the weekend & when we came in on Monday we couldn’t believe it. She had gone to the container store & completely overhauled & labeled all these bins so we could easily find things we didn’t know we had. My favorite was her technology bucket. It had all our phone plugs & computer accessories. Now we have made her a vital part of our business. We refer her to all our clients as well as other realtors who need anything from pantries to closets, or garages organized. She is definitely our most valuable resource to help get our clients from flustered to relaxed & she completely removes the overwhelmed feeling that anyone goes through when buying or selling a home. I just hired her to do my home, can’t wait!!
Sincerely believe their is a direct correlation between exterior world & interior world. Who knew organizing key spaces in home could open up doors to new opportunities. Karlee is a closet genius my closet has never looked better. 100% Grateful for each matching hanger & lighter personal space after getting rid of dead weight items that no longer spark joy!⚡️If you or anyone you know is ready for a change call Karlee.
Karlee was able to go to the in law’s house in less than 24 hours for the consultation once we spoke & she fit our urgent move into her schedule quickly & the move was facilitated within a week of my contacting her—she went above & beyond, assisting us with our move needs. Highly recommended!!
Karlee made the move to our new home so easy, so flawless, so seamless. She came to our previous home, took inventory of everything we intended to move & planned how everything would fit into our new residence. Imagine our surprise when we walked into our new home with everything we owned, unpacked, organized & labeled! And…that’s not all! Our refrigerator was fully stocked with groceries! Everyone needs a Karlee! She is a true professional & a lovely person.
Karlee and her team are amazing! Creative, professional and fantastic executors. She focuses on her client’s needs, desires and wants. She created beautiful and functional spaces in our new home. She was eager to get feedback and input from the entire family and she brought everything to life for us perfectly. We are incredibly satisfied. She exceeded all expectations. I can see why she is a successful entrepreneur. Fully recommend her and her company!
Karlee went above & beyond helping me organize my home. We went through every drawer & cupboard & took everything out & organized what was needed & got rid of so many unnecessary things! Such a good feeling having her come into my home & transform it completely! I highly recommend 2B Organized Sacramento for all of your home organizational needs!
Karlee is an organizing genius, I’m so impressed! She was able to transform my room in just one session, something that would have taken me months by myself. Plus she always has a smile, you can tell she truly enjoys helping people get organized! I’m so grateful & can’t wait to have her come back!!
About a year ago I started seeing posts about organization services. I knew this was something I desperately needed, but unfortunately I live in a location where there wasn’t a service available. I contacted Lauren O’Donnel Interiors & asked her who she would recommend. She recommended Karlee Alves with 2B Organized in Sacramento. She said Karlee obviously could organize, but she really liked her design aesthetic as well. I called Karlee &, lucky for me, Karlee travels! I am over the moon with Karlee & her skills. Not all organizers can organize & style. She is so talented! Everything makes sense now. My husband even has her working in his office with him. He feels that comfortable with her & that impressed with her skills. So far, she has been to my home three times & I’ve had her visit my daughter’s home as well. Karlee is now part of our family & we couldn’t be happier.
Moving my parents to assisted living was so much easier with Karlee & her team! We had a consult, then Karlee came over before the move to get dishes & things packed & organized prior to moving day. When the moving day arrived, she & her team were organized, friendly & kind & had everything unpacked upon our arrival to the new apartment. They helped make the transition to assisted care for my parents enormously easier! ❤️
Karlee staged my home for sale. She was really a dream to work with. Karlee brought in several furniture pieces & decor to work with my belongings. She respected my taste & preferences while advising on what would show better for a general market. Thanks to Karlee & how well she made our home show, we received several above-asking offers & closed our home within a month. We couldn’t have been happier with the process & the outcome. A bonus was having seen how Karlee could elevate my style; I used some of her recommendations & advice to decorate my new home. I would highly recommend her services. She is incredibly talented & very professional!
Karlee held a virtual party to organize my pantry & she was amazing!!! She is so creative in the way she thinks about organization & truly made every part of my pantry not only beautiful, but functional! She is very great with coming up with different ideas & ways to do things that will fit your lifestyle & space. I would highly recommend her to organize any space in your home. She always responded quickly when I had a question & even picked up product for me. I love walking into my pantry now where everything has a space & looks so pretty!
Wow, Karlee is amazing! She listened to our tastes and preferences & decorated our house to a new & beautiful home. She was amazing about finding what we liked at a great deal & was so fun to work with. Her prices are very reasonable & she’s very talented at knowing exactly what will work for your space. Couldn’t be any happier!! Highly recommend!!!
Karlee was fantastic ! As transplants from the Bay Area, we had a FULL POD of 30 years of garage storage which included tools, hunting gear, memorabilia & photos. Our new garage was FULL & overwhelming! It took Karlee approx. 8 hours to fully organize, label & store EVERYTHING in its proper place. UNBELIEVABLE. When she said she could wipe it out in that amount of time (& she did!) it was worth every dime to have Karlee come in & save the day and my sanity! I highly recommend Karlee & 2B Organized to get your life in order !!!!
I do a lot of cooking & grilling! I have a lot of kitchen gadgets & even more spices & rubs & stuff for the grills & smokers. Karlee came in & totally organized my pantry so not only can I find what I want but made me realize that some other parts of my kitchen were a better fit for some items. PLUS my wife is happy & no longer complains about how messy all the stuff in my pantry is. : ) I do all the cooking in my house & keeping the wife happy is just as important as keeping her well fed! Thanks for all your help Karlee!
I can’t say enough good things about 2B Organized! Karlee specifically truly works magic! She helped me not only get my house organized but my life! She started with a small project which ended up lending to organizing almost every aspect of my home! I never knew how badly I needed to get my house organized & what a difference it would make in my life. She provided so many great tips that I’ve been applying in my every day. For example something that stuck with me was “everything should have a home!” I now have her words in my head when I go shopping. This has enabled me to spend less & keep my home organized!!! I feel so much less stressed & can truly get things done quicker. I honestly can’t believe I was living with so much chaos in my home. I would recommend Karlee & her team to anyone needing to “take back their life” & organize their home and life. Thank you Karlee & team!!!
Karlee is by far the best organizer I have ever hired. She is super efficient at going through things & sorting them. What would have taken me days to go through took her only hours. She also helped me get rid of things in the garage by posting them on Nextdoor & making trips to Goodwill for me. I highly recommend Karlee. She is worth every penny!
