That sky-high price isn’t all. Due to its huge area, this villa requires complex maintenance and operation, which the homeowner alone cannot do, especially busy people like Beyoncé and Jay-Z.

Jenny Greenwood Huber, founder of Heritage Estate Management – a company specializing in providing property management and maid services, targeting the wealthy, said: “These villas operate like a well-oiled machine.” minus. At this level, owning a villa is like a form of business.”

Personnel is an indispensable requirement to keep the villa in its original clean and beautiful condition. This place will need a butler to oversee all activities such as housekeeping and on-site entertainment, as well as serving the host and guests; nannies take care of children from the moment they wake up; or female maids are responsible for taking care of and maintaining the wardrobe of ladies and gentlemen in the house.

The role of housekeepers becomes even more important when the owner is away. They will manage this entire large property and ensure it is always clean and beautiful when the homeowner returns.

With a mansion as large as Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s, a total of 50 maids may be needed to keep everything running smoothly. Villas like Beyoncé’s require a full-time staff including butlers, chefs and nannies. Hiring staff for a large mansion like Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s Malibu mansion can cost millions of dollars each year.

According to Huber, the villa will need at least 10 rotating housekeepers, 2-4 housekeepers, a full-time gardening team, 3-4 rotating chefs, many maids, drivers, nannies and housekeepers. monk if there are children.

Also according to Huber, housekeepers can earn $30 to $35 per hour, chefs earn $50 to $100 an hour, and maids and nannies earn up to $100,000 a year.


With a staff of 50 people, the villa owner may have to pay nearly 5,000 USD a day – or 1.8 million USD a year – equivalent to about 42 billion VND. That’s not even enough staff for Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s mansion, but with Jay-Z’s estimated $2.5 billion fortune and Beyoncé’s estimated $540 million fortune, This expense is not something to worry about.

Employees can be permanent or seasonal

Huber’s clients, often large business owners or venture capitalists, can afford to hire people to manage their expensive homes.

And this type of service doesn’t come cheap.


For property management work, Huber said her company charges a flat fee of $175 an hour (when managing properties for less than 20 hours a month) and $150 an hour (when managing properties for 20 hours or more). go up).

Some customers like to visit the property several times a month, when annual maintenance is carried out, such as limestone cleaning and sealing. Others may prefer to visit more frequently, such as once a week.

According to Huber, her employees can work from 20 hours to 50 hours a month at a single villa campus. At the 20-hour mark, owners will pay about $36,000 a year.

Huber shared that the largest house she has ever provided services for was a 6,500 square meter resort mansion.

“When new customers move in, we temporarily bring in 20 employees. They are housekeepers, maids, maids, chefs, etc. working for three weeks. We already have a core team, so we just need to add more numbers.”

Even the cost of the job in just three weeks amounted to about $75,000 at $30 an hour, not including weekend work or overtime – a costly expense for a resort property.

In short, with a property of more than 32,000 square meters, Beyoncé and Jay-Z have no shortage of places to rest. And if they want a higher level of comfort from a full-time staff, they will have to pay a hefty additional fee each year.
