Top-notch company, very pleased with their services. Katie is a true pro at her work and the agency represents the best quality candidates we've seen in the Greenwich area. On top of that, she's enjoyable and pleasant to work with and cares about her clients.

Katie is a lovely person who is easy to work with and is sincere. I was offering a somewhat unconventional position due to my frequent travel needs and the large number of hours I require coverage for on a weekly basis. Katie customized a search plan and advised me, in a concise and detailed way, what would be most ideal for my situation. I found the agency's approach from start-to-finish to be very well-organized and directed towards my preferences and requirements (not the same experience with previous agencies in the past). Katie's a true expert at what she does, whose deep knowledge of the local nanny market proved to be instrumental. Bottom line: 1) Great services, great nanny candidates, proficient process 2) Worth the agency fee and personalized service provided 3) Will use again without hesitation for future needs

The agency found me my last three jobs dating back to 2005 and I won't work with any other agency. Katie's got the best jobs and is very kind. Thank you.

So very thankful to Katie Facey for her help over the last few months in securing a baby nurse and also, a nanny, for our family. Being new to town, Katie has been an invaluable resource throughout our relocation and transition to becoming first-time parents. Marvelous experience all the way around!

Earlier this year I hired a really wonderful nanny from Katie Facey Agency who has assisted my family and I through a difficult time in our lives. I'm forever grateful to Katie and her agency not only for the services she provides but also for her compassion. As a single executive father, I had little time to focus on finding someone and Katie did all the hard work for me and selected nannies that she knew would fit my position perfectly. The woman I ultimately hired is exceptionally qualified and her rapport with my children and I is both reassuring and understanding. Katie Facey provides an invaluable resource to clients' such as myself and personally, is extremely thoughtful, intelligent, professional and all-around, a nice lady to work with.

Fantastic! I hired a full-time nanny and a weekend nanny from Katie Facey upon our recent move to Greenwich from London. Honestly, I had little hope I would be able to duplicate the quality and formal level of service in America that we'd been accustomed to in Europe for so many years. Once I started interviewing Katie's nannies, I was immediately put at ease by the professionalism of her candidates and the quality of their CV's. Very high-end agency and process. I always joke to my husband that I love "bragging" to my friends that I have "Katie Facey" nannies!

A neighbor and also a mom from our baby playgroup told me to call Katie Facey. Katie was delightful, always professional, thorough and knowledgable. She found us a great match after a two-week search and we truly couldn't be happier with how everything has gone so far. Katie Facey Agency is a great resource to local families seeking quality childcare.

Exceptional agency and sincere folks. My partner and I are were very pleased not only with the higher quality of referrals we received from Katie Facey but also the strong committment and care exhibited throughout the search process. Having moved to Fairfield County from Manhattan we were used to more of a generic and unpersonalized approach to domestic placement. Our nanny, Liza, has been an easy and compatible fit in our home and we're happy to recommend Katie to our friends and colleagues.

My review is going to be geared towards other nannies. Do not waste your time or effort in contacting this agency, they do not respond! I have contacted them via email and via phone and have left messages and have not heard anything back. I don't understand how a top notch agency would not respond to new nanny inquires. I am moving forward with another agency.

I had only worked in the past with nannies recommended through friends and was a bit hesitant about working with an agency. We have four young children and need long hours of coverage each day. Katie was outstanding throughout our search and worked closely with us to ensure we were making the best decision for our family. She is extremely particular, asks thought-provoking questions and the presented nannies were all of good quality. Our nanny, Catherine, has been great so far and I highly recommend the agency to those who ask where we found her.

Katie is highly capable, experienced as a recruiter and knows what to look for in locating that perfect match for her clients. On a personal level, she is a very nice person and savvy agency owner. We've always been happy hiring staff through Katie Facey and will continue to do so in the future.

A different type of co operative is a manufacturer's co operative. The many well-known manufacturer's co operative is Blue MixorBlue Protect, where hospitals and physicians have created not-for-profit insurance QuotesChimp which market medical insurance to the general public. The actual strength in these types of companies lies together with the venders healthcare, euphemistically identified in the industry as &number3 4;suppliers.&number3 4; The coordinators command the managing of the co operative. Unlike mutuals or mutual deals, no ownership rights are obtained by policyholders.

I had heard about Katie Facey for years from many friends and acquaintances both in NY and CT. When the time came to hire new staff this winter I immediately thought to call The Katie Facey Agency for assistance and my husband and I just completed a three week search with Katie to find a nanny and a part-time housekeeper/laundress. For comparison, I also spent time speaking with the other area agencies and from the get go felt most comfortable with Katie and her services. She was very sweet, friendly, confident and genuinely seemed interested in helping me find good employees for my home. I enjoyed speaking with her and she didn't try to rush our conversation or tell me what I wanted to hear. She asked questions that were both helpful and enabled me to think about what my exact needs were. In total, we interviewed four nannies and three housekeepers. I can honestly say that I was pleasantly surprised that each one had their strong points and it made the decisions quite challenging actually...I think we could've been happy with a number of the candidates we met. In the end, we are confident that the individuals we hired are excellent matches and will be with us for many years (hopefully!). Don't hesitate calling Katie, she's phenomenal and you will be quite pleased with her services.

Katie was lovely upfront and spent almost an hour discussing my job. She assured me repeatedly that she would be able to help me. My start date was six weeks from the brief, but I explained to Katie that I was willing to move that up if she found the right candidate.

In six weeks I saw exactly three resumes. Given the fee, that's $100 per resume. Only one was to spec, but that person was only willing to work 40 hours a week. Because I am a working mom who commutes to NYC I need 50 hours. So that person was a "no." Which Katie knew, but was hoping would reconsider once she met me. What a waste.

I emailed and called to see if I needed to adjust my expectations to get more candidates. No replies. Then I got an email from Katie saying she would send me two new resumes in the next 48 hours. That was over a week ago. I just found someone on my own.

So disappointing.

if just depends on the peorsn and everything. because you don't loose weight from just one spot, it loses from all over, so i lost 25 lbs with exercising and eating right and i only went down one size. it just depends. and if you lift weights, you may weigh more because your building muscle, but it will be firmer and wont be flabby like fat. so don't always measure things in terms of pounds because it can be very misleading.

I am a career Nanny of 20 years who has had the pleasure of being successfully represented and placed twice in excellent positions by The Katie Facey Agency and I have never, repeat 'never' known her or her associates to be anything less than thorough, responsive to my calls and questions, timely and an equally fair advocate to both employer and employee. There are more than 18,000 domestic employment agencies on the east coast and only a small handful who give the time and energy to finding the best possible 'fit' for all involved, Katie Facey is one of them! If you need names of agents who can farm out applicants like cattle I can recommend a long list in the Tri State area, there are plenty to choose from but this agency is not one of them. Perhaps the real problem here is that you started your search too early, how many people did you expect to come knocking for a position that didn't start for 4 months!

I have interviewed numerous candidates from other agencies for the past 3 months, so clearly, that was not the problem. Also, when I spoke with Katie, I asked her whether it was too early to start and she said not at all. In any event, that does not excuse failing to send one candidate given that the position starts shortly or to ever follow up with me. Lastly, I have used high level agencies in Manhattan and Greenwich and never paid an upfront registration fee.

Clearly, you keep cutting and pasting the same stock comment so that it appears first to online viewers. Highly suspicious and disingenuous.

This agency is a sham! I paid $250 to retain the agency after "Katie" spent an hour discussing my needs with me. I signed up on April 28, 2012 for a position to start after Labor Day. I never heard from her and she never sent me one client. No one ever answers the phone. My messages would go unreturned or returned after great delay by a male assistant who never had any information for me. At one point, he told me she would call me with candidates and I never heard a word. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY OR YOUR TIME!!!!! I will be suing for my money back.

Unfortunately I had the exact same experience as Allyson. I paid the upfront fee and in six weeks saw exactly three resumes, only one of which met my specs. My emails and phone calls were not returned. I found someone great on my own, but I am really, really disappointed in my experience with Katie Facey and determined to spread the word.

We were very happy with Katie Facey and her agency. We had been interviewing a few other nannies from a couple other agencies and just didn't find what we were looking for. Talked to Katie and she spent close to an hour discussing our position and what our needs were. We met with three candidates and could have hired any one of them as they all were more than qualified and professional. The nanny we did end up hiring has been everything we had hoped for and most importantly our son is doing wonderfully.

Compared to the other options out there I think that you'd be hard pressed to find another agency who not only pays attention to what you are asking for but who also has better qualified candidates. My wife and I feel there is a clear difference between Katie Facey nannies and from some of the other local agencies.
