Q: What is a Personal Concierge?
A: A personal concierge is your chance to free up precious time by hiring someone else to run errands and plan events. Not surprisingly, the personal concierge industry is growing rapidly as Americans cope with hectic schedules and demanding lifestyles. Peace of Mind is key to achieving the much needed balance between all the busy aspects of life.
Q: Items to consider when hiring a personal concierge?
A: Your personal concierge should be insured and bonded. This assures you the professional has integrity, is reliable and honest. Contact information should include mailing address, phone numbers, e-mail address and website information. Find a concierge with a strong career background whose interaction with the community has resulted in long-lasting contacts and relationships. Their network and their associates will also be available to their clients. A serious concierge will be a member of professional groups such as the International Concierge and Errand Association, their local chamber of commerce and other community organizations.
Q: Who hires a Personal Assistant?
A: Generally, a personal Assistant is hired by someone who finds there are not enough hours in a day to complete those small details in their TO DO list. Small business owners, busy professionals, two career families, out of town home owners, realtors, lawyers. A personal assistant will take care of the things you HAVE to do while you do the things you WANT to do. Outsourcing routine responsibilities redirects time and energy toward a more fulfilling and less stressful life.
Q: How does your service work?
A: Once we have spoken about the assignment and agreed on the details, you will receive an estimate of completion time and cost. You will then sign a commitment form and we will jump right into action. We will keep you posted on the progress or let you know of any changes. When service is complete, you will be notified.
Q: How much does it cost?
A: It depends on the service. To shop for, buy, wrap and mail a wedding gift is easier that planning a wedding reception, for example. Contact us for details!
Q: Do you provide all services yourself?
A: Peace of Mind has established relationships with several reputable service providers such as house cleaners, floral shops and many others. We won’t bring anyone into your home that we wouldn’t allow in our own.
