Here’s what satisfied
clients are saying:

“I have known Maria for just over 13 years. In that time she has helped me with organization, household finances (including annual income tax assistance) and most recently, downsizing. She is so efficient, pleasant and fast. I’m a real challenge and she never nags. She is a wonderful human being and I trust her completely.” —Immie Pamplin

“I know how to take care of my finances on paper, but hiring Maria to set up my company’s finances on the computer is one of the best business decisions I’ve made. She’s fast, efficient, and extremely knowledgeable. Her rates are extremely reasonable, especially considering her experience and professionalism.”— L.L., Austin, Texas

“Over the past 12 years, I have had the privilege of contracting Maria Betts to spearhead multiple commercial and residential organization projects. In every case, I experienced Maria to be invaluable as a resource for downsizing and (as a bonus) utterly enjoyable to work with! While letting go of ‘stuff’ can be extremely challenging, Maria’s calm and sensitive yet decisive approach is supremely effective in delivering life-changing results in the work or home environment. Recently, I moved from my home into a downtown apartment, and the amount of progress I was able to make each day with Maria at my side was mind-blowing. Thanks Maria for helping me simplify my life and for being so adorable in the process!” — G. Huddleston

“I was paralyzed by all my stuff when my bookkeeper recommended I call Maria for help. The combination of inheriting all my mother’s possessions and the fact that my husband and I were ready to downsize so we could move to a smaller residence overwhelmed me. After hiring Maria to help me, I can once again see the floor of my garage. She gently guides me through each project we tackle, without making me feel any guilt or shame about my situation, and I even end up having fun. She is kind, intelligent, dependable, honest and responsible, and I wouldn’t have been able to do this without her.” — Anita Kleinert

“Maria is flexible and dependable–She does what she says she’s going to do and is on time. I appreciate her sensitivity to issues of confidentiality.” — K.S., Austin, Texas

“My experience working with Maria has been absolutely wonderful. I appreciate her honesty and integrity and her creative ideas.” — T.G., Austin, Texas

“What I have appreciated most about her service has been her efficiency, availability, conscientiousness, and willingness to address whatever issue came up almost immediately. I appreciate her friendliness and willingness to come to my house to pick up and deliver my papers.”— S.F., Austin, Texas

“I am writing this letter to recommend Maria Betts for Quickbooks consulting and bookkeeping services. I have worked with her for over 15 years, and have the highest regard for her services. She has helped me and my clients on numerous projects and done an excellent job. She is dependable, trustworthy, and very capable using both Quickbooks Desktop and Quickbooks Online software. She has setup companies and provided bookkeeping services for many years, and is very personable and easy to get along with. Every one of the clients I have sent her to just love her.” — C. Rapp, Austin, Texas

“A few years ago I asked my CPA of 20 years to suggest someone to organize and evaluate my personal cash flow and suggest improvements in efficiency, stability, and planning. She recommended Maria and we started working together in early 2015. She has been fantastic at helping me structure my spending in a way that gives me clear visibility into my choices. Since that time I have reduced monthly cash flow by 25% without a noticeable decrease in lifestyle. Some of the aspects of her working style I most appreciate are: She is software agnostic. We have used Quicken, Excel, and explored other software that helps us work well with our individual backgrounds and on different platforms. She is persistent. Several times I have dropped the ball in following through on items and she has coaxed us across the finish line. She has a positive attitude: we always get our meetings done in a timely manner and with lots of positive energy. I attribute that to Maria always bringing a positive attitude into our interactions even when the software isn’t cooperating. She looks at the data in a variety of ways: one of the problems I have with cash flow is looking at what is important. Maria looks at the data in a variety of ways to help me understand what is going on. As you can tell, I highly recommend Maria to help analyze finances, cash flow, and organization.” — T. Bentley, Austin, Texas

“Maria Betts has been a colleague of our firm for over 8 years. We have referred her to our clients who need assistance with Quicken and Quickbooks, whether related solely to annual tax preparation prior to submitting their financial records to our office, or for ongoing bookkeeping services. Maria is professional, capable, thorough, well-organized, and a pleasure to work with. As well as providing bookkeeping, Maria has been a Professional Organizer for over 30 years, so should your clients need help with general office organization, she can provide those services, too. We will miss her, but we are happy to recommend her services to your firm.” — S. Brantley, CPA, Austin, Texas

“Gratitude for Maria Betts, my Organizer and friend, who is worth EVERY penny I pay her to come help me go through the stuff we’ve collected for 43+ years of marriage and 23 years in one house. Her business is called Simplisize. She’s kind. Unshockable by the accumulated messes we all want to hide. Practical and with great sense of humor, but also kind and flexible. Can’t thank God enough for people who are GIFTED in areas I am WEAK and incapable without help of doing what needs doing. THANKS to MARIA! You save my life every week! (And my children will thank you for not having to go through ALL MY MESSES when I check this body in for true freedom!” — N. Sorrell

“Hi Maria, I can’t say enough about your services. They were wonderful and above what I expected. I would recommend you anytime and highly. Who knows I may need you again. Hugs to you and Christy and thanks to your husband for the extras he provided. What a team EXCELLENT!!” — S. Hartley

“Maria, you are a miracle worker. I got a text from Jan raving about how the apartment looks. Then JoAnne called me just now and said the same. She said it is beautiful and she loves it. I don’t know how we could have done this move without your involvement.” — D. Welch
