Once you have the vision for why you need professional home staffing and the particular needs of your lifestyle, you can now confidently execute the staffing roles that will serve you best.

I am looking for the best Return on investment for you. Many of you have incredible homes that have taken you a long time to create and with much expense.  Good staffing will help preserve your asset and accomplish the home life you are looking to create.

  • How many people will I need? Typically for every 5000 square feet, you will need a daily housekeeper.
  • Can you get away with a weekly service?
  • Do I need a property manager or a service?
  • If I entertain will I need to bring in staff?

It’s vital to provide your staff with a job description that clearly defines the role they’re hired to perform.  Since job descriptions can vary widely, we make sure to work with your and your intended staff to outline even the smallest details of their responsibilities.

Once we’ve identified the skill set of the staff you need, it’s important to focus on achieving the right chemistry.  Not only does your staff need to align with your vision, members of your staff must be able to work well together.   To establish a level of trust, we will conduct a thorough background check, firmly vetting every one of our candidates.  Other factors to take into consideration are communication style (either too much or too little), boundaries and liabilities.

Next comes the subject of pay.  Many clients still pay cash or via 1099 but recent governmental requirements have imposed overtime rules and taxes that will need to be considered.

In summary, after outlining why you need the staff you need, you’ll want to carefully consider what roles will fill these needs.  Keep the following in mind:

  1. Your vision
  2. Job description of staff roles
  3. Background check
  4. Chemistry
  5. Payroll
