House PA can manage anything that makes your home or business run smoothly, so you have TIME to ENJOY life!
We understand the pressure of having a hundred things to do and no time to do them. Our aim is to provide you with a professional, yet friendly lifestyle management solution for the problem of not having enough hours in the day. Whether you need some help with a one-off project, general household administration, or a more regular arrangement to manage all aspects of your private and professional life, we can help.
We offer a free of charge initial meeting to discuss your requirements and then charge £25ph (during working hours) with no minimum or maximum hours to book each month. Just a flexible PA to work with you.
We are not office bound and can work in your home, business, or virtually, as the task dictates. We can work out of hours and during the weekend (out of hours rates apply) and we have House PAs across London.
Since starting House PA six and a half years ago, Olivia understands the purpose of the home is not only to keep us warm and safe - but to reflect our personalities, values and beliefs.
Olivia has always been an organiser. From starting her career in the charity sector, running events on tight budgets, she learned how to motivate and get people involved.
Next came the corporate world where she was part of a start-up working in foreign direct investment. She had an amazing eight years travelling the world organising large scale business conferences and training courses while show-casing locations and making them a brand.
The ethos behind House PA is to encourage the importance of a good work/life balance. There are so many tasks that can be taken care of by your dedicated House PA, so you avoid the burden of I want to be doing this, but I should be dealing with that . . .
See below for more information about my wonderful team of House PAs in your area who would love to come and help in your home.
I enjoyed 13 years' hard work and wide ranging responsibility as a senior tax professional at one of the 'big four' firms in the city, managing teams and projects of various sizes. I now utilise my broad skill set, can-do attitude and considerable experience to assist clients. I pride myself on my efficient, common sense, professional approach to work and my ability to take pressure off clients by getting the job done.
My client base stretches from Clapham to Bromley and I also undertake virtual House PA work.
With 20 years' experience in logistics, administration, and customer service, I am highly motivated with a can-do attitude and exceptional organisational skills. I have a flare for creative tasks, up-cycling, and am a whizz on social media, web design, and photography. I can travel as far as Clapham, Tooting, Wimbledon and surrounding areas.
I have been a PA for 16 years', seven of which have been working privately from individuals homes. I have worked with many clients and families all over London giving them back their time by helping organise every aspect of their lives. As a private PA I have worked on house projects, refurbishments, managed properties in the UK and abroad, and all manner of household tasks. I am an eager, hard working, loyal and trust worthy addition to your home.
As a virtual PA with over 20 years' HR, executive office manager and property management experience I have supported individuals, families, small businesses and landlords. Always striving to be 10 steps ahead of my client I aim to anticipate your needs to make your life easier and free up your time. I offer a personal touch, am flexible and will always go the extra mile. Available when it suits you, not just 9-5, with "un-googleable" knowledge of how to manage a bespoke lifestyle. As well as covering NW London and Hertfordshire I work as a virtual PA.
I have over 20 years' experience as a PA. My career has crossed a number of varying sectors including PR, hospitality, architecture and financial services. I have developed the perfect tool kit to tackle any administrative task. I am tenacious, proactive and work very well collaboratively with a keen eye for detail.
Organisation (either of physical space or information) and de cluttering are amongst my strengths and my long term passions. With over 12 years experience in HR & large scale project management combined with a background in mental health I am both an instinctive planner and organiser and a natural carer with an eye for beauty. I find a great sense of of achievement in helping others create calm out of chaos, streamlining tasks and paperwork, optimising spaces and ultimately 'getting the job done'. I look after my clients' projects as if they were my own, all the work I carry out is done with great care, efficiency and commitment.
I have many years experience working in private households. Prior to this I worked within graphic design. I know how to make private houses run smoothly with experience of working within homes in London and overseas. I aim to meet the needs to make life easier for family living and those with busy schedules, I am enthusiatic to help with any task to give you that spare time you need.
"I was only looking for someone to sell the mountain of things that I was never getting around to selling myself. There always seemed to be something more important to do. I’ve got my own business and a young family and like everyone these days, I’m busy.
My office was so bad I worked on the kitchen table and Christmas was coming and I couldn’t see where we were going to put the inevitable new toys. I was recommended House PA and then realised they could help with other parts of my house. Olivia came for an hour free consultation and left with a car full of stuff for the charity shop and things to sell on my behalf. I felt better already, like a huge weight had been lifted. She came back a week later, initially to help me completely sort out my office but ended up doing a lot more. While sorting though various corners of the house we found new, unused, boxed, boots, shoes, shirts etc and my old Phone that I hadn’t got around to selling.
I now have workable systems to help KEEP it that way and MADE more money than it cost me! I have since done a lot more on my own, she really got the ball rolling. Olivia was brilliant - very supportive, not at all judgemental or pushy. I feel I can cope with most of the smaller stuff now but I will be getting her back very soon to help me tackle the loft!
Thank you so so much Olivia!"
"I would like to express my satisfaction with the help and support I have received from Anna Ireland and House PA. A friend introduced me to this organisation and they have been a ‘god-send’ helping me with a variety of requests e.g investigating, and providing a comprehensive report about, an area I considered moving too; clearing my loft; de-cluttering rooms which were beginning to feel overwhelming in terms of ‘stuff’ etc.
Anna Ireland has been quick to respond to my email contact, efficient and competent in her work, helpful and sensitive with her advice. I will certainly use this service in the future."
"I have just had one of the most productive mornings of my post toddler life! I had put things off for months as I just didn't know where to start, and it was getting me down. Olivia's approach was methodical, logical and friendly. I now have a tidy and organised spare room and a heap of stuff ready for a boot fair at the weekend.
She was also great company, I didn't even realise I was working or that three and a bit hours had passed. I am still slightly in shock with the amount we achieved! I can't recommend House PA enough...thank you, thank you, thank you!!! "
"Beth has been managing the renovations (loft conversion and kitchen extension) of our house since we moved abroad six months ago. We had a lot of problems with the building firm but Beth helped to sort it out very proactively.
She got numerous quotes from alternative builders and lawyers, called and emailed the builders to get them going, got in touch with the Council when the waste in front of the house became unbearable, spoke to the Building Control firm and liaised with our neighbours etc. She is extremely reliable and efficient, very proactive and professional, discreet and a really nice person as well. I would recommend her 100%."
"Initially I contacted House PA to help with a decluttering and redecoration project which I thought would last a couple of months...
Shalma is fantastic, the redecoration was completed to a high standard and now we have moved on to all the other projects I have been meaning to get round to for some time! Shalma has excellent communication and organisational skills; she is calm, patient and one of the best multitaskers I have some across.
I cannot recommend highly enough, House PA has done exactly what they promise and freed up my time to focus where it is needed - a huge thank you!"
When we were preparing to move overseas, we hired Olivia to market our house in Hither Green for rent, find tenants and subsequently mange the property. Olivia was excellent and managed the process efficiently and professionally, with a personal touch.
She took care of all aspects of the process including decluttering and home staging, advertising, arranging viewings, arranging tradesmen for repairs and landlords certificates, organising references, contracts, managing deposits and finally conducting the inventory and moving in the tenants.
We built and excellent working relationship with Olivia and are totally confident in having her managing our property while we are overseas. She has also built a good relationship with our tenants.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Olivia for any property management requirements. She is a breath of fresh air in comparison to high street agents and offers great flexibility and always going the extra mile for her clients.
