Our Basic Personal Concierge Service CCS consists of paying all your bills, manage your staff and employees
and oversee regular maintenance tasks.
As you know, vacant properties are subject to minor issues such as utility failures, appliance failures, water problems and at times infestation from critters. So the importance of routine inspections should not be underestimated. Have you thought about the importance of running water in all your sinks and showers and opening windows from time to time? Not only does it prevent sewer odors from entering the house, but also prevents pest from entering as well. Have you ever seen a storm forecast for Uruguay and wondered if your property is OK? Alarm systems can't tell if there is a water leak, a bad odor, your pool has turned green, or your house needs cleaning and your landscape attention. A regular property management will help to protect and maintain the value of your investment and we will follow up with your caretakers, cleaning staff, gardener and pool man, etc.
Besides our Basic Home Maintenance Services we also offer a multitude of customized services
Have you recently decided to remodel, or maybe just purchased a home that needs someone locally to make sure deliveries, cleaning, repairs or renovations happen as you want them to happen? We offer to supervise third party workers and make sure all the legal and social security matters are handled properly. Did you depart your home and wondered if you locked the backdoor. These are just a few additional things CCS handles for its clients.

I was half a world away when Bettina diligently arranged for furniture and appliances to be delivered/installed in my brand-new apartment prior my arrival. I never felt like I was alone in the process. We worked together through emails, and she supplied detailed pictures and prices with many options for me to choose from, keeping in mind the budget we had set. I relied on her recommendations and appreciated her knowledge of design. There were no surprises when I arrived, and I felt at home as soon as I walked in the door. I really enjoy living here, and can't say enough about Bettina and all of the help she provided. She knows what her clients need and want and how to make it all happen in her naturally friendly helpful way.
Diane Cording, USA
It is now 1 year and a half that Bettina is in charge to pay all the bills for my flat in Punta del Este and is in contact with my building administration when needed. She also organized renewal of insurance contract. She is also the one who, last year, made searches and got quotes with various options from several insurance companies that I could make the best choice to properly insure my flat. She kindly assisted me for internet and electricity registrations and actually made everything running smoothly for my starting in Punta del Este. When we were looking for an architect and contractor to do some remodeling, she was of great help to recommend good trustworthy people. Bettina is always available for her clients and everything is handled with great efficiency and promptly sorted out. I fully enjoy the quality of her services providing me with a peaceful mind when I'm away from Punta and a hassle-free life style when I'm on site.
