• The Suburban


    I understand that life is a balancing act. Let me take care of what needs to be done so you have more time to do what matters most to you.

  • The Suburban Concierge

    The Suburban Concierge is a local, independent concierge service based in Ramsey, NJ that was brought to life to help people gain more quality time in their busy lives. I can assist you and your family with all kinds of errands, home projects, shopping, entertaining, holiday help, organization, etc.--we all have a seemingly endless To Do List that our schedules cannot accommodate. No matter who you are or what you do, your time matters. Your time is your most valuable and most limited resource.


    In my previous professional life, I was a Human Resources professional and then went on to become a successful Executive Recruiter. I found both of these opportunities rewarding because, more than anything, I thrive on, and excel at, building long lasting relationships with my clients. I strive for them to feel as if I am an extension of themselves, a player on their team. This is how The Suburban Concierge intends to make every client feel.

  • How we can help you...

    The Suburban Concierge offers a variety of packages that are meant to serve as flexible guides that we can tailor to each client’s individual needs.

Don't you wish you had someone to help manage your endless To Do List? Make a dinner reservation or your doctor appointments? Remind you of birthdays and milestones and help execute gift and party ideas? Professionally, you are more profitable interfacing with clients than running to the post office. The Suburban Concierge will consult with you to examine your needs and wish list and be at the ready for you.

    Add on: Monthly organizing sessions to keep your home running smoothly and looking the way you like it.

    Coming Home

    Make your vacation or work travel "re-entry" more enjoyable. During your absence, your refrigerator will be cleared of all expired items and neatly re-stocked with your “Wish List” items--a prepared dinner, items for the kids lunches, healthy snacks after an overindulgent vacation, etc..

    $30 additional for multiple shopping locations

    Suggested Add-ons--Assistance with pet care arrangements, arrange/supervise cleaning service in your absence, pick up dry cleaning.


    Attention Realtors!

    If you would like assistance with encouraging your clients to purge and tidy up before staging their home, I can help. I will assist them with the daunting task of going through closets, kitchens, basements, etc. and help them determine what they will keep, throw away, pack up and donate. I will manage the donation process for them.

    *I will also work in tandem with a stager.


    Looking for a great closing gift for your happy clients? You can "gift" time with me to help them organize their new home and get that unpacking done quickly!


    Celebrate With Ease

    Who wants to rush home from a ceremony or celebration to set up? I can be at your home ahead of your guests arrival to get the food warmed, pick up and deliver the cake, arrange your tables, fill the ice bucket, etc.. and be gone before anyone knew I was there!

    Celebrating outside your home? I am happy to deliver the cake, your favors, lay out flower arrangements, pick up balloons, etc. and have your space party ready when you arrive.

    Don't miss or rush through this precious time with your loved ones. Enjoy these special moments and leave the finishing touches to me.


    Closets, Closets, Closets

    Rid yourself of emotional items and those you simply don’t wear. Examine “wardrobe holes” that you need to fill in and make a targeted shopping list. All items that leave your closet will be bagged and delivered for donation.


    Suggested Ad-ons--Order replacement/needed items online, execute returns as needed.


    Holiday Gift Wrapping

    Holidays should be spent with family and friends. Reclaim your valuable time this holiday season. Please call in advance to reserve your time. Availability may be limited and all jobs need to be completed by December 20th.

    No Time For Errands? Let Ramsey's Suburban Concierge Service Handle It

    February 2017

    RAMSEY, N.J. -- If you ever wanted to clone yourself to get more done, a woman in Ramsey is the next best thing.

    Brooke Hopkins Tateossian started The Suburban Concierge to help people run errands, wrap presents, purge closets and more.

    "It's easier to explain what I don't do than what I do," the mother of three said of the home-based business she started six months ago.

    "I will not drive and I will not clean."

    "I tell my clients they can do anything but not everything."

    She always tells her clients that everyone needs help and no one should feel bad about asking for it.

    "I tell my clients they can do anything but not everything."

    People today juggle multiple community roles in addition to a job, spouse and children and they don't want to give anything up, she said.

    "I love making their everything happen for them."

    She has clients on monthly retainers that have their Amazon presents shipped directly to her home.

    "I wrap the gifts, buy cards and drop them off," she said.

    She also tries to anticipate her clients' needs.

    "I'm a good listener."

    She works on a monthly retainer or by the job and also offers packages on her website.

    "I try to be flexible. Clients are surprised by what I'll do."

    It was a desire for flexibility that drove Tateossian to start her own business.

    With three children 8-14, she was ready to leave her recruitment career and wanted more control over her daily life.

    Her in-laws were the inspiration behind starting a business offering concierge services.

    "They drop off dinner twice a week, babysit. People were always jealous. It made me realize how much easier my life is because of them," she said.

    Her clients are busy moms and executives. Lately, people have said they're planning to buy her services as a gift for people who are elderly or sick.

    "I love it and I get excited about it every morning when I get up. This is the best thing that’s happened to me career-wise in a long time," she said.
