Estate Couple Description

An Estate Couple is a full charge household team, which is typically a married husband and wife pair, and the couple has complete responsibility for running a household. Depending on an Employer’s particular needs and preferences, the Estate Couple position can involve a wide range of responsibilities.

In an Estate Couple pair, one domestic professional is generally responsible for maintaining the inside of the residence. Inside duties include cleaning, cooking, shopping, menu planning, laundry, serving, and overseeing daily household activities.

The other domestic staff member is responsible for the outdoor grounds. Duties generally include gardening, light household maintenance, basic machinery maintenance, and vehicle care. For Employers who have broader staffs, an Estate Couple may only oversee the inside of the house. Estate Couple positions are typically live-in.

Estate Couple duties may also include child care, event planning, expense reporting, elder-care, and, for some Employers, providing personal assistance.

An Estate Couple’s salary depends on your location, the particular job requirements, and the level of experience of the Applicants. Benefits, perks, and other forms of compensation provided by the Employer also affect salary requirements.
