-You say Clarice is an excellent housekeeper and could learn leadership skills to start leading the entire team in THAT home or resort? "She certainly tells everyone what to do quite well, and we fired our last Manager." You are talking about your home/club/resort at Laguna Beach. We can teach Clarice the proper accounting and payroll systems on her computer as well as how to collect an I-9, identification cards copies, job applications, workers compensation forms, W-4 for state and Federal as well as coaching and mentoring classes to become a Household Manager. Since you love her already, let's not hire outside; let's fine tune her and promote her. You will be sure to pay no placement fees and save a bundle. Plus you love her already and know her!
-You already have a terrific Manager, but he needs a bit of practical help on cooking, luncheon service, setting formal tables, proper silver care, quick-fire recipe ideas for a knee-jerk gourmet dinner for four and just can't seem to get it? Since you love him already, let's not hire outside - let's fine tune him and promote him. You will be sure to pay no placement fees and save a bundle. Plus you love him already and know him!
We can change all of that. We would much rather help a team staff member become better and promote from within than hire all new people. You believe in them - so why not let us fly to you and we will "grow" them! We also deliver curriculum via the internet in video classrooms. Textbooks are shipped to all students and available also -digitally, online. We can train them on-site or off-site, on a Bombardier or in another country by video instruction online.
Due to mind-snapping schedules, our instruction can be tailored to one night a week or one night a month. We can also accelerate to three nights per week.
While our students train daily in a live atmosphere of service, cooking, cleaning, errands, personal assistant duties, landscaping, gardening, elder and pet care, childcare, computer accounting and maintenance they also study locally at the largest private home ever built in America, The Biltmore (featured above bottom right). We place couple teams, nannies, chefs at resorts, companions to seniors, ranch managers, sales managers, private retreat directors, groundskeepers, construction short-term project managers, household managers and estate managers.
Training is like the TV show of Downton Abbey; perpetual. Always keeping the knives sharp in the kitchen for a dull knife is more dangerous than anything. Learning and studies are constant and ongoing whether learning about new in-home dry cleaning machines and how they operate or new inventions to clean silver, brass or jewelry. The world of service is not stuck in the 1900's! When looking for a modern day professional, you will be tasked with an ever growing need of understanding computerized functions, CCTV, alarm systems and digitized stereo, in-home theater and HVAC modules.

"We are the only estate management academy and placement agency, worldwide, that also validates itself daily by running a full-sized mansion. Additionally, we require thousands of reviews by our VIP guests to be placed online about our instruction, service and management. And we require daily reviews of such. All others are only interested in getting the money."
