House Manager

A Household Manager is responsible for handling the daily operations of a household and responding to the homeowner’s needs.  Unlike an Estate Manager, the House Manager is more hands-on in nature and is most commonly responsible for only one service environment. Excellent communication, organization, and leadership skills are common traits among successful House Managers. In addition, hiring a House Manager adds hours of freedom to your schedule and confidence that your household is run responsibly and according to your vision.  Household Managers will generally spend 70% of their time on active work and staff management and 30% of their time in the office.

A good House Manager knows how to create luxury in any environment.
