Virtually all DY nannies, housekeepers, and other household personnel are referred to DY by people known or placed before. Unlike other domestic placement agencies, DY personnel are not “off the street.” References are personally checked. Those references are shared with you if you like. An independent agency is hired to undertake a criminal background check for the past seven years in the County and District Courts for the county of the candidate’s address. Most important, our motto is, “We only place people we would hire for our own home.” All suitable candidates are instructed on DY’s copyrighted 70 point Homeowner Guidelines and Expectations. The result is a satisfaction rate DY would gladly match with any agency in the country.
