Be A Professional Boca Raton Personal Concierge

By Lowell Morales

Are you a busy person who just doesn't have enough time to take care of all the details in your life? Maybe what you need is a Boca Raton personal concierge. Someone who can organize you, your home, your possessions, and your personal affairs could make life so much easier.

A concierge gives clients the personal touch that can be missing in both private and professional life. Luxury hotels have found that their guests like having someone on hand to help with everything from planning a sightseeing trip to making a reservation. A personal concierge does the same thing for a private individual, a family, or a company.

Imagine that you are helping John Doe, a semi-retired resident of an upscale community in your area. He has a wife who is sometimes around, two grown children, two Labrador retrievers, and a cat. In one day, you might walk the dogs, take the cat to the vet, send flowers to a daughter-in-law on her birthday, mail two registered letters, hire a limo to meet the wife at the airport, and remind Mr. Doe that he has a dentist appointment.

Mr. Doe is retired from his brokerage firm, but he still has rental apartments in several locations. Rather than engage property management Pompano Beach professionals, he gets you to deal with lease renewals, rent payments, tenant complaints, maintenance, and garbage pick up. After a while, you will be proficient in every phase of Fort Lauderdale all inclusive property management, even keeping the books if you want.

Since this is your business, you can decide what you will offer and what you will charge. Perhaps you want to specialize in keeping pets happy and healthy. Perhaps you like party planning and making travel easy for small companies. Maybe you would prefer to be a Fort Lauderdale home concierge, picking up the dry cleaning and the kids, or maybe you just want to pay the bills, hire those who will attend to actual errands, and keep things running smoothly.

Someone who offers this kind of service will probably be self-employed, but there are some agencies who will assign someone to do what you need. Depending on what you want, you may be OK with being one of a list of clients - or you may want a dedicated person who can concentrate on you alone. You also need to find out what people charge and how they want to be paid. Now you can even agree to handle this with PayPal.

Since this is a real career choice, and a growing area of service, you can use the internet to find people in your area who offer this. There are even trade organizations now that post lists of member companies or individuals. The National Association of Professional Organizers and the National Concierge Association exist to support individuals and companies in the field. Do an online search for a Fort Lauderdale home concierge.

Whether you want to be the legs of an elderly person or keep a busy man's homelife organized, you can have fun and earn a good living in this growing field. As people's lives get more complicated and time seems to move ever faster, someone to help with the details is much in demand.
