About this pro
Ellen was able to come out the same day for a consultation. Prior to coming out we had to settle on her RATES. She said her rates were $40/hr. I said it was posted $30/hr and in keeping with other organizers on Thumbtack; she agreed to that rate but wanted fifty-three cents a mile for commuting back and forth. Then she said she was really a Personal Concierge. I asked her why she was on Thumbtack as an organizer and she said it was a slow time for her. Ok. I asked when she could come out. She said she was booked the rest of the week but could come out in a few hours. Ok. I made it clear on the phone I was looking for someone who can roll up their sleeves and work in tandem. After a twenty minute consultation she offered to stay an hour and get the office started. I asked if she brought a label gun and other organizer supplies. She said she didn’t use a label gun. Ok. After 15 minutes watching Ellen watch me put paperclips onto papers, I realized I would be paying for a babysitter. I checked the rates for such gigs and it is not even $30/hr plus expenses incurred. Who knows maybe an entrepreneurial spirt would have helped the moment like taking a pair of scissors from the desk and cut out paper dolls from an IRS audit while she watches.Mar 7, 2018VerifiedEllen C.'s reply
Clearly this was not a good fit. Although I was there for an initial free consultation, she seemed to think she had "hired" me. That was not the case. Her situation is dire and chronic. I hope she gets the help she needs.
Ellen has helped me with a lot of my issues regarding letting go of the stuff that was clogging my life. I appreciate her insight and advice in moving forward with my vision for my life and my rental space.Jan 29, 2017Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My pricing is simple. A pet visit is typically 30 minutes and costs $20 - $25, which includes a text message with photo. My personal concierge rate is $40/hour. House sitting is $75/night.
