Simplify was created by two busy Silicon Valley professionals and moms, Carmela Guizar-Sanchez and Selena Ontiveros.   Having personally experienced how crazy Valley life can be with juggling careers, families, friends and everything else, Carmela and Selena dreamed of having a service like Simplify in their lives!  Fast forward, add a few more kids, long nights putting the nuts and bolts of a business together and Simplify Home Solutions was born.  Simplify is dedicated bringing balance to hectic households and peace of mind to busy families.
