Fall and Spring Seasonal Changeover Workshop

Enroll in our Fall and Spring Seasonal Changeover Workshops to learn how to effectively shut down seasonal systems, open a property for the next season, and get ahead of maintenance and housekeeping — so you can dedicate your time to taking care of principals and guests.

Whether you’re navigating the seasonal changeover for the first time or looking for ways to streamline your seasonal transitions, this workshop will give you the insights and templates you need set yourself, your team and your principals up for every season.

The workshop is part of a two-part seasonal transition series: both the fall and spring changeover workshops are available as on-demand recording.

"Shelby and the Nines team have been instrumental in helping me set up all the properties. I'm new to household management, and her guidance has been gold. With the processes set up, organized and in one place, my team and I are set up to succeed — we're prepared for anything that comes our way."

Jenny, Chief of Staff (CT)

"Shelby is great to work with, she’s patient, knowledgeable and understands what is required to successfully operate in private service. Shelby’s knowledge is broad - she knows a lot about many subjects that are required to successfully manage a complicated and sophisticated estate; service, personnel management, construction management, dealing with principals, proper care and cleaning of fine household furnishings and goods."

Jared, Director of Residences (TX)

"Shelby’s knowledge and understanding of household/ estate management is unparalleled. We had an opportunity to work with Shelby for a short time and everyone on our team was extremely impressed. Clearly her past work experience is broad and her ability to grow with the organization is outstanding."

Mark, CEO (GA)

Opening properties

Recurring seasonal tasks

Getting ahead of maintenance and housekeeping tasks now allows you to focus on caring for principals and guests during each of the seasons. Walk away with a plan to help everyone on your team prepare for the busiest times of year.

Pacing and planning

When is the right time to schedule changeover tasks, and how can you ensure your vendors are available when you need them? Learn how to plan seasonal tasks and create a schedule that ensures everything is running smoothly by the time guests arrive.

Meet your instructor

Shelby Boudreau is a seasoned estate manager with two decades of experience managing luxury properties and growing estates. In this course, she’ll draw from her own experience scaling a 16–property estate, and share her own tried and true methods for managing household operations.

“As someone who has walked in your shoes, it’s my goal to teach you the importance of connecting the dots between people and properties,” says Shelby. “I want to help you elevate your skills, gain the respect of your team members, and walk away from this course with the knowledge and confidence to thrive (instead of survive) as an estate manager.”

Be a part of the mission

At Nines, we’re on a mission to simplify and elevate household life. Managing the operations of any home is too complex — and we want to make it easier. Our household management app is designed for managing properties and assets, keeping track of vendors and tasks, and accessing critical checklists and documents. Meanwhile, our Easemakers community gives private service professionals connections and resources to grow their skills and careers.

With our modern household management workshops, our goal is to give you the knowledge, tools and confidence you need to streamline the ins and outs of your household operations.

“Our principals add to the list of seasonal changeover tasks every year, so if you don’t get better at it, you can’t manage it. Five years from now, you’re doing 10 times more than what you’re doing today, and you’ll be doing it in half the time.”
