What Is A House Manager / Executive Personal Assistant?

A HOUSE MANAGER is responsible for the efficient and productive day-to-day operation of household projects. This includes supervision of any support staff and serving as the point-of-contact with vendors, running of errands, overseeing maintenance and repair, and any other household projects or family events that require management.

Working as a liaison for Principals (i.e. Home Owners), the House Manager serves as the point-of-contact for all renovation contracts, antique and art sellers, sommeliers, stylists or specialists who require time and consideration.

Where there are children in the household, the House Manager works with the Nanny on educational goals, safety, diet and the schedules of the children relative to the schedules of their parents.

The EXECUTIVE PERSONAL ASSISTANT serves as an extension of their Principal, which provides both professional and personal support, particularly with those who work from home. This role works *directly* with the Principal– from making calls on their behalf, travel planning, scheduling appointments and coordinating with a chef, dietician and trainer as to the personal care of the Principal and his or her family, whereas the House Manager has a more *independent* role. The main objective of the EPA is to give the Principal personal support for any boards they serve on, attend any events on their behalf or execute any commitments they made to others.

Both roles are vitally important to those busy families where structure is needed to stay on task, but is essential in seamlessly working together to make the home and personal life of the Principal more productive and worry-free. The House Manager/Executive Personal Assistant works to organize home and business, creating a cohesive environment.

To Summarize, a House Manager:

  • Coordinates and supervises household staff, groundskeepers, vendors, and projects; keeps the residence in impeccable condition and guest-ready at all times.
  • Coordinates family activities, including household calendars, schedules and entertainment.
  • Manages the family budget, billing and operational expense tracking and processing.
  • Completes administrative tasks such as: booking travel, charitable giving, wardrobe care and any other family-requested assignments.

Evelya is always ready to lend a hand to others on the team, from staying late or coming in early to volunteering to travel in times of greater need at the other homes. We find Evelya to be a consummate professional and would do well in all circumstances that I can think of.

Troy Jones Pearlwood, LLC Feb 2018

Evelya's communication and writing skills are first-rate. She is smart, thoughtful and tenacious. I reviewed over eighty (80) resumes and all that she personified suited my business needs. I have every confidence that given a project or task regardless of experience, that she would accomplish it in a timely manner and produce quality work.

Tommy E Short New Pacific Group, LLC Dec 2016

As a university professor, living alone in a home with a large office, and moving to a new city, I truly needed a professional assistant, someone who had the skills of an executive secretary, social worker and personal manager; Ms. Rivera was all that and more. I am very grateful for her help, and I highly recommend her to others in need of a professional assistant.

Ricardo Stanton-Salazar USC Professor, Retired Jan 2012

Evelya came into our office knowing little about what we do and yet was effective in sweeping through our un-filed documents and prioritizing their purpose. What appeared to be a daunting amount of backlog work was cut by 1/3 simply by her keep or toss-review-shred and recycle method. She was imperative in streamlining the more tedious tasks so that I could focus on the big picture.

Carol Morse Premier Wallcoverings, LLC Mar 2009
