After a lengthy and much traveled career in the hotel and restaurant field we came to the realm of private service some 23 years ago.
After having spent 5 years as Chef and gaining much knowledge in a Royal Household my wife and I decided to work as a team and arrived in USA November 1992, we are now American Citizens.
We have managed successfully a diverse range of homes ranging in size from 5000. square feet to one of 34,000 square ft. on fourteen acres of landscaped grounds.
Over the last seven years preparing meals has been limited as I have had more managerial tasks to perform, at most I cooked once to twice a week, added to that were our employers busy lifestyle that did not did need meals on a regular basis.
We have supervised contractors specifically; landscapers, interior & exterior painters, audio/visual and electronic companies, security and ensured that repairs and installations were expedited in a timely manner. Maintained accurate accounts for cash, credit and checking on a monthly basis.
I have made certain that all motor vehicles were well maintained, clean and serviced at the appropriate times eg. Mercedes, BMW, Aston Martin, Range Rover and Acura MDX and had the correct paper work in place and functioning Fastrack transponders.
We can both serve at informal and formal table service.
My wife has supervised housekeeping staff and written manuals where appropriate , but can also take care of a home on her own, likes to be involved with projects and is a good organizer, clothing, paperwork, filing, typing and keeping appointment dates etc.
She has been responsible for co-ordination of prescriptions, speaking with doctors and confirming appointments. She is artistic and enjoys creating floral arrangements for gatherings and holidays and is also a handy seamstress. We have cared for fine clothing, furniture/ antiques and artworks of great value and carry out our duties in a professional manner with English charm and a touch of Southern hospitality.
