Personal Home Manager, House Manager, and Household Manager duties are similar. Many clients refer to their jobs using these titles, however; its important to define the job duties with each family. Placements with at least 5 years of professional house manager experience usually start at a higher rates. Many ask us what is considered a great private house manager salary or private estate manager salary? We usually see a seasoned house manager hourly rate starting at $35.00 per hour and they usually work 50 hours and up per week. Any hours over 40-hours, should be paid at an overtime rate. Always ask for a guarantee of minimum hours and we suggest 45-50 hours, as this is pretty standard in the industry. These roles are different based on the size of the property. Estate Managers usually oversee properties that are 10,000 square feet and larger and also have the experience managing these types of properties. Therefore, the rate is higher and the duties are usually more. Many seasoned Estate Managers hourly rate start at $50 per hour, based on a 15,000 square foot home and larger.
