The "Urbane Concierge" -- The Key to a Simplified Life

Offering Special Holiday Packages... the Gift of Time

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - November 16, 2009) - The Urbane Concierge, the premier provider of boutique personal assistant services, today announced their 2009 holiday packages. The holidays are right around the corner, and the one thing that is on everyone's list this season is more time with friends and loved ones. A gift of personal assistant services is not only thoughtful, but provides a bit of calm after the holiday storm and allows your friend or loved one to enter into the new year with renewed purpose and clarity. Having a personal assistant is 2010's must have accessory.

Our ultimate offering for the holidays is the Joie de Vivre Package. Customized for clients who are ready to indulge in some "me time!" The package is customized to fit our clients needs and can include running errands, paying bills, returning the unwanted holiday gifts and so much more. While The Urbane Concierge is handling the daunting tasks, clients might just be off on that much needed vacation, at the spa or spending quality time with family and friends.

The Urbane Concierge ( is a boutique personal assistant service that provides busy professionals, individuals caring for elderly family members and homemakers alike, the opportunity to entrust a licensed and insured personal assistant to handle the everyday tasks that stand in the way of a balanced life. It sounds far-fetched, but Daly says it's like finding a stunt double for your work and personal life.

Personal Assistants: they are no longer a cost prohibitive luxury.

People generally associate personal assistants strictly with Fortune 500 jet-setters and the well-heeled upper crust. In truth, The Urbane Concierge is for any busy professional, individuals caring for elderly family members or homemakers looking to bring order to a chaotic, chore-smothered life. Daly's website even provides a financial tool that allows you to calculate affordability and gauge how The Urbane Concierge can fit into your budget.

"Ask any executive, business owner or stay-at-home mom what he or she does in their free time and there is a good chance you will be met with a blank stare," said Kim Daly, owner of The Urbane Concierge. "In this age of constant connectivity, the line between work and home is as blurred as the smart phone screen that keeps getting dropped in the sink from simultaneously attempting to clean the bathroom and answer work emails," she added.

Not just any "personal assistant."

Since fewer and fewer people are able to tease out what constitutes a work errand from the daily personal to-dos that multiply exponentially throughout the day, simply assigning an administrative assistant a list of appointments to make or calls to return is not a sufficient solution in today's business climate. And Daly's clients are quick to tout the benefit of the unique services she provides. According to current client Joanna Rustin, "As the owner of a successful consulting firm, I needed a 'Chief of Staff' to handle critical office and personal tasks during client meetings and while I traveled. The Urbane Concierge jumped right in and made things happen seamlessly, with the utmost professionalism, quality and integrity."

About The Urbane Concierge

The Urbane Concierge was founded in 2007 by former event planner and global travel Director Kim Daly. All too familiar with the double-digit work day that gives way to endless hours of mundane chores and to-dos, Daly recognized that both she and her colleagues were losing entire chunks of their lives to tasks that would be better suited to a trusted "right-hand." We are all so overwhelmed and missing out on our true bliss in life, that The Urbane Concierge is committed to the idea of providing people the time to focus on their strengths and priorities and maybe even find an hour or two to relax every day.
