An Estate and Household Manager is responsible for the general operation and management of the home. Both are trained and experienced in the complexity of the residence and their standards. Estate Managers typically have other sophisticated household staff and are trained to work in households of approximately 20,000 square feet or more. A Household Manager works in households with fewer square feet but is as knowledgeable as an Estate Manager to operate the running of the home. Both have an understanding and knowledge of formal etiquette for formal and informal households and are familiar with all household staff positions and what they do.
