icon May 23 - Palm Beach housekeepers are making $150k due to massive demand from the wealthy
 

 
KEY POINTS
-The mass wealth migration to Florida from New York and other high-tax states has created record demand for household staff in elite Florida enclaves — especially Palm Beach.
-A shortage of housekeepers for wealthy homes and elite hotels has led to a surge in hourly wages.
-“I have been placing staff for 30 years, and I’ve never seen anything like this,” said April Berube, founder of The Wellington Agency.

Housekeepers in Palm Beach and South Florida are cleaning up, with salaries often topping $150,000 and bidding wars between mansion owners becoming common, according to staffing companies.

The mass wealth migration to Florida from New York and other high-tax states has created record demand for household staff in elite Florida enclaves — especially Palm Beach. Demand for butlers (now called “hospitality managers” or “estate managers”) as well as nannies, chefs, drivers and personal security has surged, according to staffing agencies.

It’s the shortage of housekeepers, however, that has created the biggest mess for wealthy homeowners. Many of the wealthy emigres to Florida bought big homes and now need people to clean them. Hotels, resorts and businesses are also vying for cleaning staff. The result: Typical pay for housekeepers has rocketed from about $25 an hour in 2020 to $45 or $50 an hour today, according to some agencies.

“I have been placing staff for 30 years, and I’ve never seen anything like this,” said April Berube, founder of The Wellington Agency, which places household staff in Palm Beach, Miami, New York and other locations. “We’ve seen such a boom from people relocating, especially Palm Beach and Miami.”

In Palm Beach, housekeepers with experience in wealthy homes are typically making between $120,000 and $150,000 a year, along with 401(k) plans, health care and benefits, including overtime.

“For housekeepers it’s wonderful,” Berube said. “For us it’s extremely difficult. It’s a severe shortage.”

Melissa Psitos, founder of Lily Pond Services, said she recently had a Florida client hoping to hire a housekeeper for $75,000 a year. They ended up paying $110,000, which was reasonable for the market. Executive housekeepers, who often help direct a staff of other housekeepers and laundresses, can make even more. Psitos said she knows one head housekeeper in Palm Beach who makes $250,000 a year, including overtime, and travels with the family to their various homes.

“There is just not enough supply,” she said.

Bidding wars between wealthy homeowners have become common. Staffing agencies are posting “Help Wanted” ads all over the web and throughout West Palm Beach. Clients are growing frustrated.

“At first they’re in shock, and they say, ‘No way I’m paying that,’” Berube said. “It’s even uncomfortable for me to give them the numbers. But when they try to hire someone for less, with less experience, they almost always come back to us and say, ‘I learned my lesson. We are willing to pay for the experience.’”

Berube said the housekeepers for the wealthy need highly specific skills — from how to move quietly and unnoticed throughout the house, to how to carefully clean antiques, flatware and fine art and how to properly wash and press fine linens.

“There are specific tools and skills you need to work in fine homes,” she said.

Berube said with so few qualified candidates, she’s thinking of launching a school to teach high-end housekeeping skills and generate more housekeepers.

“I would love to do it, but I don’t have the time, since we’re busy trying to find staff.”

I'm telling you, having a great housekeeper is a blessing. Especially if you're busy with other stuff.

Ours comes twice a month and it's the greatest thing ever. We're not messy to begin with but work they're done the place looks like a museum and you don't wanna touch nothing.

We have a big glass enclosed shower and when its cleaned it looks like it's not even there.

If you Lucky to get a good decent family to work for, the amount of crap those folks of to deal with on top of demand of time, Feeling constant pressure, rich temper tantrums and the constant feeling of being replaced; you would just want to kill them. A lot of people don’t see people as people remember that especially at 150k.

Not a side hustle, it's a full time job and not as easy as it looks when the client is snobby and wealthy.

Yes, poor Consuela. God forbid she gets a job making 150k a year. We should not be racist and know white people can be housekeepers too right? Let’s make sure Consuela doesn’t have this beyond lucrative opportunity… let Karen compete too.

Let me guess - white people can be professional athletes too? Stop hiring the people who are talented at the game because it’s “racist” to fit them into a job based on skin color, despite typically performing at an elite level.

Insane take by you…
I’m not white Chad so fu#k you and Karen.

My Ecuadorian chick I met in Orlando at the city walk, breast feeding some rich MF’s kid in west palm beach. A bi pudgy freak. Nothing to brag about.

She getting paid 110K.

I didn’t believe it till she pulled up at my homies westgate timeshare the next day.
