Spotlight: Billy-Hendrix

So much to do, so little time, right?  If this is your mantra, maybe you should think about hiring Renée T. Billy of Billy-Hendrix.  The movers are scheduled to be at your house next Monday at 9am and your boss just informed you that she needs you on a flight to China at the same time? No worries, Renée’s team at Billy-Hendrix can handle the move for you from top to bottom. You’ll arrive home jet-lagged, but all of your boxes will be unpacked and your furniture situated exactly where you wanted it.  Summer’s almost here and you haven’t had time to change out your wardrobe? Billy-Hendrix to the rescue. Need to get your holiday shopping done and can’t seem to get out of the office before Christmas Eve? Give Renée and her team your shopping list and the gifts will miracleously arrive underneath your tree in pretty paper.  Get my drift?  Billy Hendrix is a full-service luxury lifestyle management service based in New York City.  With meticulous assessment and attention to detail, Billy Hendrix specializes in advanced personal assistance projects that include closet styling, personal shopping, and de-cluttering overhauls.  Billy Hendrix is also an expert in detail event management – everything from a full home relocation across the country to the planning of a wedding, or simply implementing a household organizational structure.

Why Billy-Hendrix? For many years, I was the ‘go to’ for friends, seeking advice on what to wear to that very important interview or work-related social event; How to arrange furniture in their home; How to find space for all their stuff in their tiny NYC apartment.  While having lunch with a dear friend, we were discussing my burning desire to become an entrepreneur and she suggested creating a concierge type business that would offer the services I provided daily for my friends.  I’ll admit I was sure if I could monetize the concept.  I started talking to folks to gauge reactions.  Since most were positive, I started Billy Hendrix.  Working a full-time job, with a busy household, I assembled Billy Hendrix for 3 years before leaving my steady paycheck.

One word to describe Billy-Hendrix? Flawless.

What was the original vision and goal for Billy-Hendrix? To create a business that wouldn’t seem like work for me.  To do something I truly enjoy while making a real difference to the people I service.

How is Billy-Hendrix different from other concierge/personal service companies?

To date, all of my clients are referrals and repeat customers.  You won’t find Billy Hendrix in the Yellow Pages, which tells you, I have been fortunate enough to have many happy clients.

    Love BHX – always top-of-mind when considering a project that is too much for me to handle lol!

  • BHX and Renee have seen me from single girl to married woman, and every moment in between. She’s helped me transition from one point of life to the next with style, efficiency, confidence and capable energy. I highly recommend her service to anyone looking to make life a tad bit easier and to capture precious moments back by outsourcing tedious, but necessary, projects!!!
