Estate Manager


A private family of three in Mill Valley, CA is seeking a top-notch estate manager to oversee their homes. The family has two additional residences- one in NYC and one in Lausanne, Switzerland. The family is seeking the right fit for this role- they are open to a candidate who prefers part-time hours managing the US based residences, or they are happy to consider French speaking candidates who would prefer a full-time schedule managing all three homes. Both part-time and full-time roles require a candidate local to the Bay Area, and the full-time role requires a French speaker. 


Duties for this position encompass everything related to residences and their care. Each home has several staff on site, so the estate manager will work with them to ensure that the homes are running smoothly. Duties include scheduling and overseeing renovations and projects, being on-site for maintenance and vendors, and supervising household staff. Other duties include overseeing invoices, house/staff manuals, shopping for groceries and other household items, running errands, sorting mail and accepting packages and deliveries, processing and shipping returns, keeping up with car maintenance, and assisting with events such as dinners and parties.

This is a very hands-on position and requires someone with a “no task is too big or too small” attitude. This role requires being on-site at the main home often, in order to do regular walkthroughs with the principals to discuss various projects and maintenance. The family is seeking someone with knowledge of estimates and invoices, who can track and manage project expenses, and negotiate on the principals' behalf. The ideal candidate for this role will be proactive, detail-oriented, organized, and will have excellent communication skills and the ability to multitask and think ahead.


A COVID vaccine is required for this position. Compensation for the role depends on experience and schedule and ranges from $70-$200k plus a health insurance stipend if needed. If you are legal to work in the US and are interested in this position, please apply to AS390.
