homes in Dallas and the surrounding areas, as well as nationally. He has a deep understanding of the local social
culture and can meet and exceed the expectations of Dallas families when looking for support in their urban

International Domestic Consulting
International Domestic Consulting can also provide staff for family offices, sourcing the most experienced and
efficient full or part-time Executive Assistant or Chief of Staff candidates who are adept at managing multiple
national and international properties and marrying the sometimes-blurry boundaries between a families, corporate office, and household support.
International Domestic Consulting is also affiliated with London's premier domestic agency. That agency has
over 35 years’ experience placing premier staff in the homes of nobility in Europe and palaces in the Middle
No matter what the role, the team members at International Domestic Consulting are all involved in screening,
interviewing, and presenting candidates who are the most qualified to meet the requirements of your particular
busy home or family office. We have worked as domestic staff ourselves, have entrepreneurial backgrounds and
are business-minded, and we have stayed current in an ever-changing domestic market.
As an added benefit, our affiliation with a private concierge Age-Management medical practice in Dallas Texas,
Florida and Georgia allows us to develop care plans for seniors, help set-up schedules and perform on-sight un
announced inspections, reporting back to family on the progress and well-being of their loved ones. Most
recently Peter began a training program for housekeepers on Dallas and founded Dallas Nanny Agency, which
provides specialized training and mentoring support for candidates and clients alike.
We are here to really listen to you and to offer our expertise. Feel free to reach out to the team at International
Domestic Consulting to fulfill all your staffing needs.
