The Estate Manager is usually responsible to handle any events for the owner as well. This could range from a simple meal for a get-together of six people, or a gala event for six hundred.
Not only is this key person responsible for events, but they are also responsible for important tasks, such as budgeting, accounting, and payroll. Other tasks typically include overseeing construction, landscaping, autos, yachts, planes, pools, and dealing with the maintenance of these things.
An Estate Manager is a necessity when the estate has multiple properties, an extensive wine or art collection, or complex technology that requires someone on staff to oversee operations. One is often also needed to manage large estates and grounds, where there is domestic staff of three or more.
