Vendor Management

Interior designers. Landscapers. Carpenters. Cleaners. Plumbers. The list goes on and on. They help you live and work like you deserve. Still, juggling the number of people who sustain your daily routine can be overwhelming

Take a deep breath: Pepper’s Personal Assistants is here to handle vendor management. Our PAs save you even more decision-making by pulling from a long, curated list of thoroughly vetted local vendors. We know who’s great to work with and who to avoid.

If you’re away from home, your personal assistant speaks with, schedules and pays vendors. They ensure any services go as expected. They take inventory of and oversee any items vendors drop off and pick up. If any issues arise, they’re prepared to tackle them.

And if you’re at home and simply want to relax, let your PA take vendor management off your plate. Your time is precious — spend it on yourself and your family!

Managing Vendors

Don’t worry about scheduling, coordinating with and communicating your needs to vendors. Your PA does the heavy lifting, from initiating work to inspecting results. 

Say, when landscapers maintain your lawn, your PA checks the work and gives feedback. Meanwhile, they supervise your landscapers to guarantee you get the services you paid for. Then, your PA checks whether they’re charging fairly according to their quality of work — and organizes their actual payment. 

Now, replace “landscapers” with any other vendor. Let us take a giant weight off your shoulders! 

Discover how we handle everyday tasks so you’re never overburdened. Book a call to discuss how we make vendor management easy, including our preferred vendor list. 

Dealing With On-Site Vendors

Vendors can show up at the worst times. When you’re at the office, on vacation or otherwise occupied, your PA tells vendors your exact expectations. Why wrestle with phone calls, texts and emails and hope they get your instructions clear?

The same goes for when you’re home. Don’t ignore your self-care day when you don’t have to! Your PA speaks with on-site vendors so you can lie back, uninterrupted. We specialize in finding out what you want — and then making sure vendors professionally deliver it. 

Speak with us, and see how dealing with on-site vendors can be the last thing you think about. No matter where you are, vendors have your PA’s keen oversight.

Handling Mailing Services

The process of sending, receiving, sorting, forwarding and storing mail isn’t just frustrating — it’s exhausting. Our PAs know how to expertly supervise your packages, priority mail and more. 

Don’t stress when you have that big shipment of holiday gifts or perishables out for delivery. Reclaim your time! Your PA checks whether they arrive undamaged, in shape and on schedule. If you need to return an item, we coordinate that, too — and make sure shipping is precisely right.

In fact, your PA manages all incoming and outgoing mail providers, USPS to UPS. FedEx to DHS. Find perfectly organized mailing and around-the-clock peace of mind.

Forget about weighing your mail service options. Contact Pepper’s Personal Assistants to learn how we take care of it — and take one more stressor out of your life.

"Pepper's preferred vendor list is so helpful. It helped me find a housecleaner for my client's short term rental which they were happy with!"

Pepper’s Personal Assistant Reviews

See what it’s really like to work with a Pepper’s personal assistant!

Deep Gratitude!

“The first week with Vincent has gone exceptionally well! I have no questions or concerns, only deep, deep gratitude for the difference he has already made.”

W.W.

11/10!

“My PA is incredible—an 11 out of 10—really thoughtful, thorough, intuitive. She is professional but friendly; she has just been great. A couple of times because of things going on with her calendar, Kandis has been flexible—coming 15 minutes later to drop the dog off at puppy play. She has been really great.”

Libby

Thoughtful and Detail-Oriented

“My PA is a thoughtful and discerning assistant. She pays attention to details in our home and makes great suggestions for how to improve and optimize our lives. We trust her judgment, and she communicates proactively and frequently. She is always on-site on time and patient with my unpredictable schedule. We communicate frequently, but she’s also very efficient in how we communicate. Great work!”

Client

Super Happy!

“[I] really do think Kandis is setting the bar! Having a new person come into your house can go either way. [I’m] very grateful for the time and energy and people that Pepper’s has. It’s a big step; no suggestions around onboarding. [I’m] really happy that we were able to board Kandis quickly; super happy for the West Seattle support.”

Libby

Organizing Superhero

“My PA is really good at organizing; it’s one of her superpowers. Some of the simple reorganizing things that she has done have made a big impact. She organized all the cat stuff in the garage and took the initiative on her own. She’s bright and cheery—no moaning, whining. Very great.”

Emma

One of the Best Decisions I’ve Made

“I just wanted to take a few minutes to tell you how much I have appreciated working with all of the Pepper’s staff. My assistant is so generous and thoughtful — she brings value to every interaction. I can’t remember a time when I’ve hired anyone with such a professional and high standard of customer service. Working with you all has been one of the best decisions I’ve made in a very long time!”

Libby

10/10 for Sure!

“Missa is a 10/10 for sure! She has been wonderful, and we check in regularly. I’m comfortable communicating with her about questions or requests, and she’s always been very responsive and also seems comfortable checking in if she has any questions for me. [The] biggest help remains pet care and household chores support, plus the help with one-off projects that come up. Missa has all kinds of skills she brings, (e.g., she’s currently putting together a ‘cat highway’ for the living room rafters).”

Homeowner

My Quality of Life Has Improved

“I used to spend every weekend and every evening doing chores and running errands. Now, I’m able to spend the time that I need to on my business, and then I get to enjoy my home and my life and the precious unstructured time that I have. The truth is, my quality of life has improved by having a Pepper’s household assistant here.”

Libby

Takes Initiative

“I want to mention what a fantastic personal assistant Billie is to me. We were on vacation last week, and she managed my household and vendors flawlessly. I even had her redecorate my office, and I gave her very little direction other than just to make it nice and functional, and, my goodness, did she ever! She takes initiative in my house in so many other ways but does not overstep or overspend. To strike that balance is really something unique and special. I feel really lucky to have her.”

Anura

I’m Blown Away

“[I’m] blown away by how much better the house looks already :)”

Graham

Kind, Caring, and Proactive

“My PA is a very caring person. I was incredibly ill last year, and my PA connected the dots that the washing machine had a lot of mold and thought the black specs on my clothes were from that. On her own time, my PA sent me an article about the impact of mold/washing machines. It was so kind of her.”

Emma

Goes Above and Beyond

“My PA has gone above and beyond. She’s organized my laundry room while keeping on top of laundry, which made it much easier to stay on top of stuff. She’s always ready to jump in and tackle items. It made this holiday season way less stressful.”
