In a city that offers just about anything you can think of, it’s no surprise that there are a number of companies that will gladly provide you with a personal concierge. The number and type of services available is limited only by your imagination, your needs and your wallet.

Just about anything you need, a personal concierge can get

Tired of running errands, picking up the laundry or doing grocery shopping? No problem. Need someone to remind you about gifts for special events – and then get them for you? Or how about someone to get the hard-to-get ticket or restaurant reservation? Where do you find such a person? The companies below are a good place to start.
