Domestic Estate Managers Association meets at the Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club

The Domestic Estate Managers Association (DEMA) is a worldwide professional and educational association for the Private Service Community. Founded in 2007, DEMA was created to provide a forum for Private Service Professionals and Certified Service Vendors interested in better serving and protecting the best interests of their clients.

The association is a comprehensive referral network created for Estate and Household Managers, bringing them together to collaborate with colleagues, and provide them with a cadre of Elite Home Service Providers to assist them with the daily challenges of running an estate or household.

Service providers are added to the group by invitation only and are carefully screened for their expertise, reliability, work ethic and experience. The fundamental purpose of the association is to raise industry standards for those who manage households, estates, and those who fill the role of Executive or Personal Assistants for high net worth families and busy business owners and professionals.

The organization’s intention is to raise industry standards for domestic staff and service providers alike, bringing to the table a new level of service that filters down to the principle homeowner.

Originating in Michigan, DEMA now has members in over 43 states and 18 countries and is quickly becoming a global presence in their industry. DEMA’s members have access to local chapter meetings, educational materials, webinars and a network of individuals striving to make a difference in the industry.

“DEMA’s mission is to develop and provide a transparent platform of consistent standards, continuing education, networking opportunities and an attitude of cooperation in a unique and dynamic profession. All the while, serving and providing services to our Principal Employers to the highest standards available within and outside of this association.

“The San Diego Chapter DEMA meets the last Wednesday of every month. In July, DEMA was graciously hosted by the Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club, which shared the services and amenities that they provide to the residents of the Covenant and their guests.

Al Castro, general manager, and Juan Blanchard, director of food and beverage, did an outstanding job of welcoming our members to Rancho Santa Fe and providing the wonderful atmosphere in which to meet and mingle and learn more about their wonderful service to the community. The food and service was outstanding!

“We look forward to our next meeting on Wednesday, Aug. 28, from 7-9 p.m. We are excited to be hosted by Coleen Freeman, owner of Rancho Santa Fe Estate & Fine Jewelry, located in the heart of the Ranch.

Coleen offers an array of services from jewelry design to watch and jewelry repair, as well as appraisals. We look forward to learning more about fine jewelry from Coleen who is committed to going the extra mile to meet the needs of her customers. We appreciate her gracious offer and look forward to learning more about her work and the field of fine jewelry. ”
