About Nicola Professional Organizer Toronto

What is Space in the City?

Space in the City is your go-to service for all things organizing. Founded by Nicola Masterson, a professional organizer living in Toronto.

What kind of organizing does Space in the City do?

Closets, kitchens, offices—we organize your entire home. Anything that makes people say “ah I love being this organized” or “I needed this level of stress relief in my life.” We also help with pre staging before you sell, packing you up for your move and unpacking your home after a move to ensure your transition to your new home is as seamless as possible.

Why should I hire you?

You’re here to make a difference in the world, not to be bogged down by all this stuff you have in your life. It is causing you mental clutter, anxiety and stress. Overwhelm is the worst—believe me, I’ve been there. Also, you probably want to show your husband (mother-in-law) you got this.

Sweet. That’s EXACTLY what I’ll help you with.


"Hi Nicola! Thank you so much. I wanted to share with you my daughter loves transformation part 1 so much she had her friends over last night for pizza and movies! Been a long time since she has done that. We closed the bedroom doors and enjoyed our awesome space❤ Sure Sunday works.."

Going through life with odd socks, was never my thing. I tried it for a while, I’m sure I was walking crooked. Nowadays, I like things nice and neat—what’s more, I like to make your things nice and neat too.

I was raised in Ireland, in a nice big home full of space. I got quite the shock when I moved to Toronto. My country roots didn't prepare me for the tiny spaces that came with City living!

I was one of those people who had a library full of organizing books, and all the latest magazines, with color-coded tabs, to remember my favorite tips. Anything to make space for the gorgeous clothes and shoes I loved! I took what feels like 897 courses in organizing, productivity and digital marketing. I love creating systems and finding better ways to do things. It makes me feel happy and deepens my focus.

3 years ago I got the call that everyone dreads. My mother, who had recurring cancer since I was 6, finally was told that she was terminal. I flew home immediately to take care of her. We had a beautiful year together, but her passing was the hardest thing I have ever experienced. Clearing out her closet by myself seemed impossibly difficult. No one should have to do these difficult things alone.

Now with Space in the City, I am able to guide families through the big and small challenges in life. It’s a blessing to hear their stories and watch their transformation.

I was born to help people, to take away their stress and overwhelm. When I am helping a client and I see calm wash over their face, that is my happy place. To hear a client say “thank you for believing in me,” makes my heart sing.


Virtual Organizing

"Working with Nicola was a big change for me. Not only was I able to go through about half of the boxes during our video call and decide what to do with every item in the box, I also had a plan of how to proceed with the remaining boxes. Nicola motivated and checked in regularly with me about my progress. Thank you for believing in me."
