Client Projects We Have Recently Resolved:

“My client has concerns about her household employees using social media while they are at work. She thinks they are posting images of the interior of the house. What can we do?”

“Is there a rule of thumb on how to hire safely?”

“I have a client who recently purchased a large working ranch. They want to add staff, including horse wranglers, and provide staff housing. Can we team up to help them and give them some numbers?”

“Can you make some suggestions on a retirement amount for a housekeeper. My client did not set up a retirement account, and they are looking for a good number?”

“My father recently passed, and I would like to help my mom better manage their two properties, but we need help understanding any security concerns, the cost of some small renovations, and employing workers. Could you help us? ”

“I have several clients with aging parents. The families are having difficulty with the transition and conversations around this sensitive topic. Would it be possible to have a conversation with them and talk through their options?”

“We would like to understand the difference between employment screenings and background checks versus employment screenings and background investigations. Do you recommend one over the other?”

“I am looking for ‘family’ expertise. We can not agree on how to manage our dad’s living alone and his care. He is pushing back on everything we come up with, and we know that he cannot live in that big house by himself. When could we schedule a call?”

“I have a client in VA who wants to exit an employee who has been with them for over 20 years. The employee holds all the household and property information on his personal laptop. When asked for the information, the employee refused. My clients do not want a struggle or for this to go public; they just need an easy resolution. We heard you can help us with this type of situation. When can we connect?”

“The parents of a very dear client are showing very early signs of dementia. Unfortunately, my client lives 2000 miles away from the family estate. How can we suggest options for their care?”
