Business Partner of the Week

Nicole Ramer, SMM~C

Organized Haven


Nicole is a Professional Organizer and Certified Senior Move Manager® and the founder of Organized Haven, a full-service moving, downsizing, and estate clearing company. She and her team have been serving the Polk County / Central Florida area since 2013, assisting seniors and their families with the emotional and physical challenges of decluttering, downsizing, and moving, or aging-in-place. Nicole started her business as a one-woman home and office organizing company. She grew it into a multi-person business and found her niche in managing moves for seniors within 3 years of startup. Her husband, Danny Ramer, was the first of many to join her on her journey from what was once "Organized by Nicole." Organized Haven is now NASMM A+ Accredited and employs a team of professional organizers, senior move managers, and movers. As fully trained members of the National Association of Senior & Specialty Move Managers (NASMM) and the National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals (NAPO), the team has advanced knowledge of their industry. Nicole serves as both President of her company and the current President of the Board for Better Living for Seniors of Polk County, a coalition dedicated to improving the lives of seniors. When she is not managing the business, coaching her team, or serving on her board, Nicole is spending time with Danny and their 2 young children, little Danny (9) and Kinsley (under 2). Florida natives, they've called Polk County home since 2006 and love this community!
