Estate Management, Modernized

The estate management industry is progressing from its traditional model – where individual estate managers support individual UHNW families – to a more compelling, agile model where companies provide estate management-as-a-service (‘EMaaS’) to many households in a select neighborhood or region. EMaaS is a superior service and a greater value for principals, and a more enjoyable career path for experienced estate managers. An unprecedented demand for professional home management services fueled by busier lifestyles, generational preferences, a greater awareness of the benefits of EMaaS, and the growing number of affluent households in the US is driving the modernization of this essential but antiquated service.

DPN has been tracking the emergence of EMaaS and supporting the companies pioneering the service, whether it be luxury home builders providing this as a post-construction offering to their clients, experienced estate managers fractionalizing themselves over many homes, or venture-backed tech-enabled services providing one-stop, proactive solutions to households. We recognize that EMaaS is the future of home ownership and we are excited to be the first agency with a practice focusing exclusively on bringing qualified professionals and best practices to these companies.
