Personal Assistant services

Metro’s Other Woman® is an Assisting Firm that lends a hand to virtually any household and business need. Our staff is well-rounded, coming from many different backgrounds. Many of our Personal Assistants left their careers seeking an ever-changing profession, which enables them to use their experience and knowledge, while tapping into their creative sides.

Metro’s Other Woman® specializes in making our clients' lives stress free. We bring time and balance back into their day by providing many options for personal assisting services.


Because the duties and skill set required vary for each client, Metro’s Other Woman® has established two levels for personal assistants.

 

Junior Personal Assistant

Junior personal assistants typically have experience in administrative assisting, retail, restaurants, domestic services such as housekeeping and nannying. All of these staff members have a high school diploma with some college experience.

Sample Duties:

  • Perform Laundry/Ironing (wash, dry, put away, closet maintenance)
  • Light Cleaning (wiping down surfaces, sweeping/vacuuming, washing dishes)
  • Detailed Cleaning (polishing silver, hand cleaning chandeliers/light fixtures/etc.)
  • Perform Task-Based Errands (grocery shopping, dry cleaning drop-off/pick-up)


This position is often task-based. In other words, the client gives their staff member a TO-DO list to work from.

 

Senior Personal Assistant

Senior personal assistants typically have experience in administrative assisting, interior design, real estate, project managing, and event planning. Most of these staff members have at least a 4-year college degree.

Sample Duties:

  • Serve as House Manager (manage housekeepers, lawn service, pest control, other vendors)
  • Schedule and Manage all Household Appointments (home maintenance)
  • Manage Household Projects (renovations, re-design, organization)
  • Manage Vehicle Maintenance (take vehicles to dealership, oil changes, detailing)
  • Accept Home Deliveries
  • Calendar Maintenance and Booking Travel
  • Personal Bill Pay and Home Office Maintenance
  • Errand Running (personal shopping, shipping/mailing)
  • Performing Research


This position consists of high-level house managerial duties and often requires research and problem solving. *All senior personal assistants can perform junior personal assistant duties.

 

Service Frequency:

  • Project Based
  • Multi Weekly
  • Weekly
  • Biweekly (every two weeks)


Personal assistants most often service clients on a weekly basis.

Metro’s Other Woman® works with each client to create a custom service plan, based off of budget, goals, and preferences. In order to determine the best option, we suggest each client compile a needs based schedule for maintenance and a separate wish list/project list.

If you don’t see the service you are looking for, be sure to ask - as we’ve probably just forgotten to add it to our sample list. (We do everything!)

testimonials

  • I have used the services of Metro's Other Woman® for the last 5 years. They have been with us through 3 moves and 1 location transfer.

    We began our experience with Metro’s Other Woman® in Raleigh, NC. After 4 years, we relocated to the Charlotte area and promptly began using that location. Moving is stressful, but the one thing I didn’t have to worry over was who would be taking care of my household needs.

    Things I love about Metro’s Other Woman®: they always take special care of my belongings, they offer flexible scheduling, and they take the time to pay attention to my pets when they enter my home.

  • Your investment in your people appears to me to be really paying off …Desmond certainly could not represent your company in a more professional manner ... personality and courtesy as well as talent. I was very impressed. In my opinion, you are heading in the right direction with your company.
