The Household Staffing Team

Starla Smith


Most businesses are built around products or services. It is the rare few that are built around passion. I know I cannot trust an impersonal database, another salesperson or even the recommendation of someone I know because the person I need to hire understands me and my specific needs.

For me, it is not about placement fees; it is not about searching databases or talking to salespeople. It is about learning who my clients are and translating that knowledge into action relative to finding the right household staff member for them.

This is my passion. It is what drives me every day.

I am Starla Smith–and together with my team-we provide the personal service, the understanding, and the care that you need.
