Rachel and Company is a full-service professional organizing firm specializing in home organization, closet design, and home moves in the Washington, DC area, and beyond.


Hi, I am Rachel Rosenthal , a busy working mom, professional organizer, closet designer, and creator of organized in a box™.

Born and raised in Bethesda, MD, I turned my passion for organization into a business I love after deciding that being a lawyer was not for me. I wanted to use my talents to help people while doing something I truly enjoyed. Shortly after, I found out I was expecting identical twin girls!

When my life suddenly went from no kids to mommy of two, I had to reorganize everything, and I haven’t looked back since. I went from being a JD on Capitol Hill to owning my own business as a professional organizer, then to Director of Operations at Style for Hire — a national personal styling company co-founded by celebrity stylist Stacy London of TLC’s “What Not to Wear” — and finally back to my own business, Rachel and Company. 


My identical twins Ellie and Marin have appeared in social media campaigns and have been featured on local DC-based morning television shows, including ABC’s Good Morning Washington and CBS’s Great Day Washington to discuss their favorite organizing products and tips and tricks on how they get and stay organized.

The girls have created their own video series on the Rachel and Company’s YouTube channel where they share their organizing tips that are easy for kids and families to implement in their own homes. Ellie and Marin have appeared in Parents magazine, and The Washington Post (print and video). The Washington Post interviewed and created a video around back-to-school organizing focused on Ellie and Marin’s school routine.

So what makes me qualified as a professional organizer?

I am type-A and truly love to organize. I strive and function best in an organized space. I live by a routine and love it. I am a list maker and even write things on my lists just to cross them off. But most of all, I understand where you’re coming from. I understand that we all have stuff — stuff that clutters our homes, our schedules, and our lives — and I am here to help you organize that stuff so that you can be more productive and focus your energy on what matters most in your life.

My commitment is to bring organizing solutions for your life through what I have lived and learned and to be realistic with whatever I share. I am not perfect (and I don’t pretend to be) and my house isn’t always neat which if that is what you are looking for, I am not sure I am your gal! I am just like you. I get it and we have to be flexible yet resourceful with our solutions. I am a big believer that there is a difference in something being neat versus organized.

I am a TODAY Parenting Contributor and my work and organizing tips have been recognized in the press, including Better Homes and Gardens, Martha StewartWoman’s Day, The Wall Street Journal, Real SimpleThe Washington Post, The Huffington Post, The Washington Post MagazineGood Housekeeping, US News and World Report and NBC4. My realistic approach to organization and focus on creating manageable solutions that tie into a home’s existing aesthetic has contributed to Rachel and Company’s success.

Since 2007, Rachel and Company has worked with over 1,500 families and has partnered with prominent family-centered home and lifestyle brands on campaigns that often include media opportunities. We’ve created partnerships, giveaways, and hosted events with a portfolio of brands, including The Container Store, West Elm, Poppin, Savor, Kit + Ace, Wayfair, Bed Bath and Beyond, Mintwood Home, Urbanwalls, Clevermade, and more.

Together with my team, we pride ourselves on creating realistic organizing solutions and systems to make a home more functional and joyously livable. Click here to learn more about how we work.
