homes where they are valued and can make a
difference. We go above and beyond to do it.
HomeFront Lifestyle Staffing is based in New York City, one of the best and toughest places to live. We should know: we grew up here and now we’re raising our family here. Our deep knowledge of the NYC and Hamptons lifestyle has made us the go-to resource for families looking for help that just "gets it." From navigating school events and play dates in the city to managing a property in Montauk, we've got you covered.
Whether you are working parents seeking a city-savvy nanny, a family looking to tailor meals to dietary restrictions or food made to your taste, or an entrepreneur in search of a read-my-mind assistant, we can find the right match for you. No request is too specific. Tell us what you need. We are listening.
We've always felt it important to approach our business with a human touch, warmth and sometimes...a sense of humor. Over the years, we’ve cultivated the truly important skills needed to solve problems for our clients: listening, needs assessment, respect, creative problem solving, and responsiveness. You'll like working with us.
HomeFront Lifestyle Staffing wants to make your life easy from the moment we engage. We never send a pile of resumes for you to comb through. Instead, you will receive a selection of appropriate, pre-screened candidates that fit your needs. Your only difficulty may be making a choice and we can help with that, too.
HomeFront provides premium staffing services tailored to the needs of our discerning clientele, including full vetting of candidates, insistence upon and confirmation of candidates' legal work status and considerable effort to match candidates' skills, backgrounds, and personalities with the needs of the client.
Our focus on credentials and chemistry results in a process that saves our clients valuable time...and gives them peace of mind. We want you to feel like your life at home is in order every day when you go out into the world.
If you have a need you don't see here, give us a call. We're resourceful.
We know how difficult the transition back to work can be for a new parent and how important it is to make the right match for school-aged children with their changing needs.
We can guide you through the selection process and also help you keep the relationship with this important, extended member of the family happy and healthy over time.
All of our childcare candidates are interviewed in-person by our staff. We conduct thorough background checks, talk to references, and ensure legal working status. We're also looking for the intangibles: Does this person love what they do? Do they take pride in their work? Do they seem loyal? Are they compatible with my clients' lifestyle?
Over the years, we have become deeply knowledgeable about what makes a great Executive Housekeeper, an exemplary and dedicated personal assistant...and we pass that knowledge onto you by helping you ask the right questions. Do you need someone with experience handling fine art and antiques; someone comfortable with in-home systems such as Lustron and Creston? Do you want someone with formal hospitality training or an informal, roll-up-your-sleeves style? Do you need someone to organize you or motivate you?
Having household staff can be a luxury or an absolute necessity, either way it's not always comfortable handing over the personal details of your family’s life to others. At HomeFront Lifestyle Staffing we operate with the utmost discretion and professionalism.
Whatever your lifestyle, you can be assured that HomeFront Lifestyle Staffing will understand your needs and find you the staff you are looking for.
Sure, virtual assistants are great for some people, but if your lifestyle calls for a skilled executive assistant or hospitality manager for your business or family office, HomeFront Lifestyle Staffing can help. Over the years, we have made successful placements for some of America's wealthiest families and leading figures in business, sports and entertainment.
We will help you find candidates demonstrating the right combination of experience and initiative; people with a sense of urgency and an ability to multi-task effectively. We have placed professional assistants with experience managing multiple estates, conducting business internationally, proficient in private and international travel, procuring specialized goods, managing yachts and jets.
Homefront Lifestyle Staffing will only send you qualified candidates you would be confident to have represent your interests.
Our clients are primarily high-net-worth individuals, Family and Corporate Offices, and Corporate Clients engaging us to assist Executive's with their private household staffing needs.
At HomeFront Lifestyle Staffing we believe in the critical importance of providing high-functioning families with the people they need to go from good to great; from surviving to thriving. Our ability to place the best candidates in the right jobs time after time, is born from hands-on experience, our understanding of the market, and the deeper needs of both clients and candidates.
Since 2005 husband and wife team, Jaime and Matthew Hochhauser, both New York natives and working parents, have raised the bar in the area of household and corporate staffing. They make placements primarily in New York City and the Hamptons, but have also placed candidates around the country, in Europe and in the Middle East.
What makes us different is our focus on mutually enriching relationships. We have created a culture that values all participants. This is key to the success of any business or household. We help both parties come to the table with their needs clear and their voices heard. This eliminates misunderstandings, creates trust, and establishes an environment of empowerment.
In a service business, you cannot underestimate the importance of listening. We believe it is a lost art.
We understand its important because we solve problems. We help people find exactly the right match for their needs and listening is the only way do that effectively.
When we listen we hear your hopes, dreams, and worries. We hear your specific criteria for success and the past experience that taught you a lesson. We hear your preferences and aversions. When we listen with respect and without judgment, we hear more than you even say.
Listening is not passive. It is about knowing what questions to ask, about empathy, about understanding.
Whether you are a new parent, a successful entrepreneur, a titan of industry, an aspiring personal chef or a career nanny; whether you are a client in search of help or a candidate in search of the perfect job, we understand what you're looking for...not only because we're listening, but because we've been there. We get it. We hear you.
