"It gives me great pleasure to highly recommend HEA! The workers are very professional, work harder than any other agency I have used and most importantly, a pleasure to be around. HEA has helped us staff in the Hamptons, NYC and our boat — and had applicants available to interview the same day we inquired. Hands down the best in the business!!!"

Estate Manager Description

An Estate Manager is primarily a chief administrator who bears broad responsibility for running an Employer's estate(s). This often involves overseeing and providing hands-on management for multiple residences. An Estate Manager's profile will vary depending on the individual candidate and the needs of the Employer.
An Estate Manager assumes a leadership role among domestic staff members. He or she has a broad knowledge base relating to general household management duties. In addition, the Estate Manager/Household Manager will typically have a formal education, computer skills, and basic financial skills.

An Estate Manager's specific responsibilities, which depend on the size of the Employer's domestic staff, typically include hiring, directing, and terminating other household staff; liaising with and overseeing vendors and contractors; booking travel arrangements; maintaining household security; running errands; organizing and running large household events, parties, etc.; managing the household calendar; performing bookkeeping and other accounting tasks; and managing special projects.

Additional duties — particularly in a residence in which the Estate Manager works without others under his or her direction — may include Houseman or Housekeeper responsibilities. These duties are: performing general handyman services and facilities / home maintenance tasks; maintaining household inventories; procurement of supplies, including grocery shopping; maintaining a proper indoor and outdoor appearance for the home; providing hands-on housekeeping (e.g., doing laundry and ironing; cleaning the kitchen, bath, and living areas; organization of closets, pantries, etc.; care for art, antiques, and fine furniture; etc.); driving family members to appointments and engagements; and more.

Overall, an Estate Manager endeavors to ensure that his or her Employer's life is as carefree as possible. He or she wears many hats and remains fully on top of all the details of an Employer's residential life. The Estate Manager may live in or out of their Employer's residence, but the position is often a live-in role. Moreover, as needed, an Estate Manager travels with his or her Employer family, or alone, to additional residences and alternate destinations.

Salary for an Estate Manager depends on your location, the particular job requirements, and the level of experience of the Candidate. Benefits, perks, and other forms of compensation provided by the Employer also affect salary requirements.
