Marcia YockersProfessional Organizer, Home Stager
Marcia began staging residential properties for sale and learned that organizing was a natural companion. She has been organizing homes for 10 years, and joined the Can the Clutter team in September of 2013, upon moving to the Twin Cities to be closer to her daughter and son-in-law.
Marcia loves organizing closets, kitchens and garages. She also specializes in home staging and coaching clients through the downsizing process. Personally, she and her husband downsized half of their belongings in the process of moving to the Twin Cities, so she has first-hand experience with the physical and emotional aspects of downsizing. Marcia enjoys working with other Can the Clutter team members on big jobs, requiring immediate results!
In college, Marcia had the privilege of an internship at Dayton's that began her fondness of the Twin Cities area. She loves working in homes in the area, and helping clients love and enjoy their space! Further work experience includes human resources and owning a staging/organizing company in Wisconsin. Marcia holds a certification as an Expert Home Stager with Center Stage Homes.
In her off time, she enjoys yoga, running, knitting, cooking, travel, time with family and bonding with a new grandson!

“Marcia was great. She and Maggie (daughter with ADD) spent two hours working in her room. I have a nice pile to take to Goodwill! We are going to have her come back in May when Maggie comes home from school for the summer. We both felt it was well worth it and I would recommend Marcia highly to other people.”
“Catherine is great to work with and is very professional and friendly. She is easy to talk to, positive and encouraging, and doesn’t judge. Both of our children recently moved out permanently, so we’re repurposing their rooms. Catherine helped talk through the things we have accumulated and helped make good, quick decisions. We would highly recommend Can the Clutter if you’re having trouble figuring out where to start with reorganizing or decluttering.”
“Recently, I engaged Marcia Yockers to help me handle the possessions of a friend who was moving out of an apartment to live in a long term care facility. From our very first meeting, I felt very comfortable in letting her handle different aspects of this assignment. Marcia was very efficient as we worked through each phase of the project. She had good ideas on the best way to handle different types of property. I would highly recommend the use of her service as it saved me a lot of time and the project was completed on time and on budget. It allowed me to focus my time on my friend rather than her things.”
