Personal recommendation is extremely important to us as the vast majority of our work comes through word of mouth. Here is what our clients have said about us:

Fatima is a meticulous, efficient and expeditious virtual assistant. I use her services for everything from booking work and personal travel to researching places to visit and to dine at. She is excellent at keeping my calendar up to date and she even reminds me that certain appointments need to be made. She takes care of a number of personal appointments as well. I can’t recommend her and her attention to detail enough! Dominique Lazanski

‘Roomtobreathe seemed like the sort of luxury that ‘other people’ were entitled to, and it took us some time to come around to letting go of all the little things we just didn’t get done.  It was so easy to trust them and after agreeing the ‘rules of engagement’ (and a very hefty list of birthdates and preferences) ‘Roomtobreathe’ began to work its magic for us too.  Suddenly carpentry was finished, deliveries received, and mum’s birthday remembered (bought wrapped and posted too).  There is literally nothing this business won’t consider – tax returns, finding meeting and managing reliable tradesmen, cat feeding, even research are such a treat when your needs are anticipated in this way. Get started with them, change your life – and get yourself ‘roomtobreathe’!’
Simon Allison, NLP Master Practitioner and grateful client.

‘Working in the city, you do have access to an assistant, but there are certain things which you can’t use a PA for, and which tend to sit worrying you in the back of your mind while you try to juggle work and home.  I used RTB to fill that gap for us, and found there was nothing they weren’t willing to do, from finding an electrician, to finding house/cat sitters over Christimas including interviewing 11 candidates for this and finally selecting a wonderful couple – AND then going the extra mile and doing a visit while this sit was going on.  I have been extremely impressed with their timeliness, quality and attitude. I would recommend them to anybody needing some help to keep all the balls juggled.’

‘The best thing about working with ‘roomtobreathe’ is that they ‘get it.’ They totally understand how to work with busy people who are overwhelmed with ideas, responsibilities and big to do lists. Working with them has saved me time, stress, money and lots of hassle with minimum fuss. If you value your time and are sick of chasing your tail, give ‘roomtobreathe’ a call.’
