“My husband and I moved from NYC to Ribera, NM. We were at the final stages of building our ranch. We knew that we needed to hire a couple to manage our ranch when we were in and out of town. We called many agencies and there was no sense of urgency on their part. Then we called The Deborah Calkin Agency. WOW! Someone took an interest in our needs. We live in a very remote area and we knew this might be a problem finding good help. From the very start, the response to our needs was impressive. The organization, follow-up and sheer enthusiasm to find what we were looking for never stopped. Deborah’s agency is very detailed oriented, quick to respond to our questions (which we had many) and left no stone unturned. We found the perfect couple to stay at our guest house and I can tell that we will have a great relationship with them due to the incredible due diligence on Deborah’s part. I would recommend The Deborah Calkin Agency to anyone looking to fulfill any domestic need.”
“The DCA found our family a wonderful Nanny who is like a member of our family. We had twin boys in March of 2007 and wanted to find a nanny who had experience with multiples who would love and take care of our sons the way we would…and now we have her! Our boys LOVE our nanny and the agency really listened to what we wanted. Our consultant, Esther, sent us 3 great nannies to choose from (which was the hardest part of the entire process) but it was clear there was one nanny who we felt matched our personalities the best. We are so grateful to Esther for such a wonderful experience as it was our first time going through an agency. Thank you DCA!”

“Anyone who has ever hired a housekeeper knows how difficult it can be to find someone who not only cleans well, but someone you can trust, communicate with, and who shows up! After hiring several housekeepers independently over the years that were consistently inconsistent, I decided to try another alternative. We first tried using a professional cleaning service (will not mention which one) and felt as though we overpaid for mediocre work. Then we finally tried going through the DCA. What a relief! The agency found us a spectacular housekeeper who we have been very happy with for almost two years. Our housekeeper is like a part of our family and she even takes out our two dogs on walks when we are not able to. I HIGHLY recommend this agency for household service providers; their candidates really are the best.”
“Thank you for being a part of my client’s 75th birthday party at the Eaves Movie Ranch…and a big part for sure! The 5 babysitters that the agency sent were wonderful and because of that the kids were fantastic! Looking forward to working together again.”
The Deborah Calkin Agency started in Santa Fe, New Mexico in 2008 when the state had no nanny or household staffing service.

APNAis the only household staffing alliance where agencies are accepted based on their standards of ethical practices, how long they’ve been in business, client and applicant references and much more. Please visitAPNAfor more details!
