About Our Agency

After celebrating 20 years of professional business and countless successful employee placements, our formula is simple – place only the best the first time.   Whether working with a single person or a large family, aristocrat or under the radar, politician or musician, we know that personality and experience are the keys to a quality placement.  We carefully profile both employee and employer in order to present the most compatible candidates for consideration, making our goal to establish a long-term relationship.   Our process is extremely individualized and the resulting candidate recommendation is based equally on skill and personality.   We are proud of our track record and stand behind each and every candidate.

Our Placement Guarantee assures that if you are not completely satisfied within the first ninety days, we will replace the employee at absolutely no additional charge to you. Our fee for professional household placement is a one-time fee, based on a percentage of the employee’s annual salary.
