Your estate is a busy place with many moving parts. Having someone you trust to oversee the various day to day tasks and the staff that are involved is very important. Here are some key things to consider when hiring an estate manager.
What is the difference between a household manager and an estate manager?
An estate manager generally works on a larger scale. For example, this person may manage several properties, like multiple homes, vineyards, golf courses, or yachts. An estate manager may also need to oversee a larger staff in more than one location. A household manager on the other hand, works on a smaller scale. This person may assist in managing finances, shopping, cooking, cleaning, and organizing the house.
Know what you need.
A household manager needs to be experienced in a variety of things. In other words, the person you hire needs to be a jack of all trades. For example, they might need to work on a budget one day, but then create a schedule for the housekeeping staff the next. Or maybe they will need to oversee some repairs or renovations that are scheduled on your property for the week. The person you hire needs to be adaptable to whatever comes their way during any given week.
Hire someone you can trust.
Your home is full of appointments, social events, school requirements, sports practices, and more. A reliable household manager that you can trust gives you the opportunity to spend time on the things that matter most to you. A household manager takes care of all the various details, so you don’t have to. This frees you up to do what you need to do, without another thought.
