“Thank you so much – it was fantastic to have you! You did a great job.”

JM, SW London

“OMG – you are a brilliant miracle worker! I will always think of you.  You have never let me down.”

JR, London

“Peta, you’ve done it again.  What an amazing transformation in my flat.  You have project managed this seamlessly in my busiest time and it’s so reassuring that you have these fantastic contacts.  I know I can always trust you to be proactive and make really great suggestions.  Thanks again.”

CG, SW London

“…the place looks great! We have put up some pictures and put the furniture in place and it looks like home again, only cleaner and fresher! Thank you for getting us in on time and exactly what we asked for!”

PB, London

“Thank you for sorting out last week’s nightmare morning –  when I got home, it was as if the leak had never happened. What a brilliant service!”

Caroline, London

“…you are a lifesaver for me – I don’t know how I would manage without you.”

MCC, London

“It didn’t take us long to have full confidence in Peta’s ability to take care of our interests.  She exceeded our expectations almost immediately.  Her responses were always prompt and efficient.  We also valued her advice and observations when difficult situations arose during the refitting. It made a huge difference to us to know Peta “had our back” to use an Americanism.  We would recommend her services highly, and we intend to continue to use her company to help us in the future.”

Val and Bruce, SW London

“Things were quite manic on Friday but we finally exchanged on our house! Now I’m keeping on with my list of things to do. Thank you again for your amazing help!”

SR, Caversham

“Thanks so much to you and your handyman for all the great work the other day.  Everything looks wonderful and it’s really made it so much nicer/easier to put things away having everything painted and new shelving installed.”

CM, Battersea

“I can’t speak highly enough of Peta Cottee and her business, Partners-in-Time. Over the last few months, I’ve been juggling recovering from serious illness and trying to get back to work and simply didn’t have time or energy to organise the work needed on the house we moved into last year. Peta took the burden completely off my shoulders and organised re-decorating, carpentry work and urgent building repairs. Nothing was too much trouble for her, right down to making sure that the hours her team worked in my house fitted round my work/rest schedule. Even when she was on holiday, she answered emails and kept in touch about the progress of work! The team she employed were a joy – reliable, turned up when they said they would, did excellent work and finished on time – and like Peta herself, always went the extra mile. I will be using Peta’s team to do more work on the house next year and will be recommending her services to everyone I know. Thank you, Peta, for a fantastic service.”

Marianne, academic at Oxford University

“When I was faced recently with the huge task of moving my archive, books and other belongings from the family home, I had no hesitation in turning to Partners in Time who had assisted me before with their organisational skills. I have always found Peta a bright, breezy and reliable person to work with. She is often ready with solutions at her finger tips but tackles problems and researches solutions deftly with enthusiasm and success. I cannot think of anyone I would rather have at my side to help out when problems of a logistical nature must be solved within a specified time frame.”

Jennifer, Swanley

“I asked Partners in Time to undertake an assignment on which I had already “wasted” 6 precious hours trying to complete, namely finding an hotel in the UK with certain requirements.  They found me several feasible options in a short time period, and saved me money.  What more can I ask for?  I will be using them again for sure.”

Joanna, London

“As my personal assistant for the past two years, Peta of Partners in Time, has proven herself to be a remarkably responsible and confident assistant.

I am amazed at the ease with which Peta can fulfil a variety of tasks. She has worked for me not only as a PA but also as a researcher, event organiser, confidante and gatekeeper. Not once have I ever seen Peta become overwhelmed by a given task or assignment.

She is organised, efficient, extremely competent, and has an excellent rapport with all types of people. Her communication skills, both written and verbal, are second to none.

Peta’s intelligence and maturity would be a great asset to any person or organisation.”

Pam Warren, Berkshire

Peta, it was such a relief to come home and find all my electrics sorted out this evening.  Thank you again for helping out and at such short notice.”

CM, Doctor

“I have used Peta and the services of Partners in Time on several occasions and have always been delighted.  Peta is always there to help me out with all sorts of problems.  She is totally trustworthy, reliable and nothing is too much trouble.  I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her wholeheartedly.”

CC, Doctor

“I have used Peta Cottee and the services of Partners in Time to look after our rental properties.  Peta took time to meet and build rapport with the tenants freeing up my time to get on with my core business.  Peta has an extensive network of suppliers and is fully capable if picking up issues and resolving them quickly and efficiently with minimal input from me. I would highly recommend Peta’s services to anyone requiring assistance with personal time management.”

DC, Accountant

“Peta has made an enourmous contribution to our business over the years.  She provides an indispensible management service, keeping everything organised as the firms’ members attend to its project work which has taken us from Russia to New Zealand via California and Texas. She is organised, reliable, highly professional and calm in the face of challenging situations.”

MT, Management Consultant

“Thank you for your amazing support in the summer.  You were a lifeline with your thoughtfulness, professionalism and kindness during an incredibly difficult and traumatic time.”
SJ, SW15 

“I asked Peta to set up a film schedule on a new project whilst I was out of the country.  The project involved and range of sensitive relationships – the client was a (difficult) Government department, the subject matter was bereavement, which meant she had to have difficult conversations with potential interviewees and the deadline was tight.

Peta did a great job.  She was tactful but firm with the client, sensitive with the interviewees and practical in terms of getting the schedule in place.  And her invoice was very reasonable.  I would have no hesitation in asking her to do the same again.”
Jonathan Crane, Perpetual Films

“Over the last year or two Partners in Time has helped us, among other things to:

  • move house and declutter
  • re-organised our filing systems
  • set up two spreadsheets to keep track of our household and business expenditure
  • dealt with a boiler crisis
  • organised a roof repair and all sorts of other repairs, redecoration and routine jobs for us, such as our annual boiler maintenance visit/landlord’s gas certificate inspection
  • is carrying out a survey of utilities providers to save us money
  • helped collate the documentation for a US working visa
  • pay our weekly cleaner and arrange for carpets to be cleaned

Partners in Time provides an invaluable service for us – one of us a busy professional and the other running a business. We would quite literally be lost without Partners in Time.”
Liz, Business Owner

“It is such a relief to know I can ask Peta to do things or investigate my options, knowing she will come back quickly with the options.  Getting rid of those nagging tasks on my “To Do” list has made me much more relaxed.”
Sam, Charity Manager

“Your service was very personal and tailored to me, with excellent contacts supplied. I appreciated the personal touches.”
Cat, just moved house and had a baby

“Prompt service which followed though to the finish, with alternative solutions offered.”
Gina, Management Consultant

“Partners in Time really helped me when I needed it, offering a very quick, efficient and intelligent service.”
Jo, Business Owner

“Thank you for waiting in for the delivery of my kitchen and for checking the parts, knowing that the delivery was complete meant that I was able to relax and enjoy the end of my holiday without worrying.”
Fiona

“When I wanted to rent my flat out I looked at a number of options for helping me get the property ready for the rental market and manage my relationship with the tenants. Partners in Time was able to provide a really flexible approach to all this which gave me exactly what I wanted and is very competitively priced. I feel I got the right deal for me and am delighted to have their ongoing support.”
Shirley, Business Coach

“Partners in Time came to my rescue when I was starting work with a new client, buying a house in Kent and moving into another in London – I couldn’t be in all 3 places at once, to ensure deliveries happened, phones were fitted and connected and workmen turned up and did what they were supposed to do! Partners in Time have been extremely flexible in terms of their availability and willingness to take off my shoulders much of the frustrating, time consuming liaison with workmen and deliveries. I shall continue to use them and recommend them to friends and colleagues whose busy lives necessitate an occasional, trusted, reliable helping hand.”
Jo, Management Consultant

“Partners in Time were easy to get hold of, friendly and efficient. I had some art to sell and they checked estimates with auction rooms, organised the cataloguing and did the negotiating. Best of all, they kept me informed all the time. When you trust a bit of your life to someone else, you need to know what’s going on. I’d certainly use them again.”
HC, Chief Executive
