I believe exceptional Estate and Lifestyle Services depend on highly-trained hospitality professionals with the ability to adapt to different service standards and guide homeowners to choices that best meet their needs. Excellence is never an accident. It is the result of high intention, sincere effort, intelligent direction and skillful execution.

Hi, I'm Laurence

 

FOR MORE THAN 20 YEARS I HAVE BEEN MANAGING, MAINTAINING AND IMPROVING THE OPERATIONS OF PERSONAL REAL ESTATE ASSETS IN ORDER TO MAXIMIZE PROPERTY VALUES AND ENHANCE OWNERS’ LIFESTYLE

 

Born and raised in Nice, France I have a Bachelor's Degree in Public Relations and Marketing. Early in my career, while living in Paris, I worked as Director of Communications in the hospitality industry with the  Relais & Châteaux, 3 star Michelin Chefs and 5 star hotels.

I had the privilege to work with exceptional professionals, world class chefs and boutique hotel executives with a passion for high-end service, culinary experiences, 'savoir-faire' and timeless elegance.

 

 

 

I entered the private services industry while living in

Barbados with my family. On the island, I managed high-end estates & lifestyles for a Manhattan based family and a diplomat.

I have been living in Connecticut for 20 years. Today I am an American citizen but my heart remains French.

Working for many years as an Estate Manager/Director of Properties & Operations for families in CT, NY and Europe has enabled me to offer a diversity of services in both dynamic and challenging environments.

Over the years, I have built the skills, knowledge, confidence and psychology to provide high-net-worth individuals with exceptional lifestyle services and premium estates management services. My European background and years of experience in the corporate hospitality industry are my assets in terms of professionalism, cultural awareness and exclusive luxury.

 

I manage luxury estates operations to provide owners with dedicated staff members, pristine maintenance, new residence set-up, home organization and oversight of renovation and construction. I also lead properties development and deploy technology platform

to establish highly functional operating systems, procedures and  Sur-Mesure  inventories in order to streamline processes and day-to-day tasks.
