Seattle Family Testimonials
“I just wanted to send a thank you email to you for the wonderful support your agency has provided our family. My mom has always said that it takes a village to raise a child and I feel like your agency has been a part of our village. We decided at the last minute to go with a nanny vs. day care and using your agency has made that decision one that we are grateful for. We are very happy with our nanny and appreciate all the guidance you have provided especially since I am a new mom and new to the nanny process. I would highly recommend this agency to friends and family!! THANKS SO MUCH!”
“My mother is nearly 91 years old, and is living in a group home in Seattle with other residents who have dementia. I am in Chicago, and there are limited opportunities for my mother to have visits from family members tin Seattle. I contacted Annie’s Nannies when I heard that they had senior companions available in addition to nanny services. I wanted to find someone who could just come and visit my mom once or twice a week and engage her in conversation and provide “friendship.” Suzanne and I spoke at length about my mother; her background and history – and Suzanne selected a companion whom she felt would be a good fit with my mother. We were very lucky to have a companion who has indeed become a friend to my mother. My mom looks so forward to Bernell’s visits and Bernell provides feedback to me after many of these visits. I have noticed that my mother has become more engaged mentally since these visits began, and I attribute that in large part to the fact that she has the stimulation of conversation with a confidante. I am so very grateful to have found a friend for my mother. From the selection of a compatible companion for my mom, to the feedback and caring – I couldn’t be more pleased that we found Annie’s Nannies to help make my mom’s days more interesting.” –N.S.

“Eight years ago, we had our first child. We made the decision to hire a part-time nanny. A friend had suggested “Annie’s Nannies.” I called them right away and they came through with several candidates. Since we were first time parents, we didn’t know what to expect from our nanny, aside from the basic child care duties she would perform on a part time basis. What we got was so much more. Our first nanny stayed with us for three years and we are still friends. She is one of the most wonderful people I know and cared for our daughter and son like they were her own children. Our lives were richer for knowing her.
Since hiring our first nanny eight years ago through “Annie’s Nannies,” we’ve hired two other full-time nannies, as well as, several on-call nannies for weekends and such. They have all been wonderful people and we remain in contact with all of them.
“Annie’s Nannies” have consistently sent us great nannies. They have always been there as a sounding board as well, when there have been questions or issues that have come up. Suzanne always makes time to call me back or answer an email. We trust them and are so thankful that we have them as a resource.”
“I have worked with Annie’s Nannies for over six years and they have found us three wonderful nannies – and I have never found them anything but exceptionally professional. As a busy parent, juggling many things, it’s such a comfort to know that they are looking for JUST the perfect fit for my family. My first engagement with Suzanne was an hour and a half conversation – she asked me a wide-ranging series of questions designed to get the most accurate picture possible of our family, and the type of person who would best work with our specific situation. In each of the four engagements we found a match after very few interviews – a boon, again, to folks with very busy schedules. They want the best for the family and the nanny, and they do an amazing job at keeping everyone’s best interests at the fore. Everyone at the agency does their work with pride and integrity, and I’ve never had anything but excellent experiences with the staff.”
“I love Annie’s Nannies. They have been nothing but helpful in helping us find our last 3 nannies/personal assistants. We have also used their temporary services – that is actually how we found one of our nannies. I have always felt that they took the time to understand our family needs and sent us very qualified candidates. They check in with us and have always been willing to work with us. I highly recommend them in finding safe and reliable childcare and personal assistants. I wouldn’t use anyone else.”

“I have used Annie’s Nannies several times to find child care for an evening out, or for the day when my child needs to stay home from school. They are always very professional, prompt, and send great nannies! We like the nannies so much, we have requested the same ones again. I definitely think it is worth using Annie’s, even if you just need an evening out and want reliable, competent child care.”
West Seattle, WA
“Annie’s Nannies is definitely the gold standard of placement agencies in Seattle. Not only has Annie’s found our family several fabulous nannies in a row, they make what can be a time-consuming and stressful process completely manageable. Over the years, the experienced team at Annie’s has done a fantastic job of evaluating our needs and then finding us the perfect match for our family. Thank you Annie’s Nannies!”
Mercer Island, WA
…She has been great this first week and I have no doubt that we have found someone that will become part of our family! Thanks so much for all your help through this process! I had initially contacted another well-known agency here in town and it quickly became evident who I should be working with. Your professionalism, responsiveness and outgoing personality were unmatched and made an often-stressful process very easy. We will definitely recommend Annie’s Nannies!
“I have relied upon Annie’s Nannies Household Staffing for over 10 years. And I keep coming back! They are an excellent resource and it’s a pleasure working together. Annie’s Nannies is responsive, professional and accommodating.
When I was in need of a Nanny, they provided me with many wonderful applicants. Each applicant was highly qualified, trustworthy and nurturing. Often times it was hard to choose from such a pool of talent. As a family, we were lucky to have our nannies for many years at a time.
Over the years, my needs have changed and Annie’s Nannies Household Staffing has changed, too. I no longer need a nanny but I do need babysitters and Annie’s Nannies offers on- call nannies as well as other household help. Their sitters are delightful.
Thanks to Annie’s Nannies, I leave the house knowing my daughter is safe and well cared for and she can’t wait for us to leave.”
Mercer Island, WA
“Annie’s Nannies provides consistently WONDERFUL nannies: great depth of experience, high energy, and generally smart all around – exactly the combination of factors that makes me feel like I don’t have to second guess or worry about anything. Thanks also to the Annie’s Nannies staff for doing such a great job in following up quickly and making available such a broad selection of nannies.”

“I’m writing to thank the people of Annie’s Nannies. The staff is so helpful in finding appropriate nannies to help with our long run, short run, and urgent needs to take care of our son.
The most important qualities that Annie’s Nannies seems to be able to produce is finding nannies that are truly interested in our son’s well being. They arrive and make us feel safe about having someone else take care of the most precious person in our life. The nannies have always been polite, professional and engaging with our son. We feel that he has been able to learn and grow with many of the creative ideas and experience the nannies bring.
We plan to continue to use Annie’s Nannies well into the future when our next child arrives. I would recommend Annie’s Nannies to any parent in need of excellent professional and personal help with their child.”
“Working with Annie’s Nannies has been well worth the money. The professionals at Annie’s Nannies understand my family’s needs and send me only candidates that would work well for us. We’ve had nothing but great experiences over 12 years of working with the agency. We wouldn’t hire a nanny any other way.”
“Over the course of the past seven years, I have worked with Annie’s Nannies to place three long-term nannies with our family. Each time, I was impressed with how Suzanne matched our family’s specific needs with potential candidates. Each of the nannies Annie’s Nannies has placed with us has been professional, responsible, enthusiastic, dedicated, cooperative, loving, and a true asset and team player in parenting our children. The personality of each nanny was ideally suited to the age and phase of our children’s development. Not only did each nanny love our children and encourage their positive development, but they all have become an important part of our family, and we keep in close touch with each of our former nannies.
Again, Annie’s Nannies’ professionalism and responsiveness made the interview and selection process a positive experience for me. I appreciated the agency’s careful screening and Suzanne’s understanding of our needs. After an interview, I always felt I could be frank with Suzanne regarding my reactions and benefited from her insight and feedback to ultimately find the perfect match for us. She was always confident that we would find just the right person, and we always did!
The agency has always been helpful on practical issues surrounding the nanny contract and has forms available to assist with the paperwork.
Unlike some agencies, Annie’s has the advantage of offering excellent temporary nannies, and it has been helpful to use that resource to cover when our permanent nanny plans a vacation.
Whenever friends and family from other parts of the country visit our home, they always comment on how lucky we are to have such excellent nannies for our children. I have felt the same way, and thank Annie’s Nannies for introducing them to us!
Thank you for helping us find a great nanny. Laura has been a blessing for our family and it was a pleasure working with you to find her. Having searched unsuccessfully with other local agencies, I was surprised how quickly and accurately you assessed our needs. The candidates you sent us were excellent and I appreciated your dedication to getting us the right fit. I always felt that you had the best interest of my family at heart and it wasn’t just another placement. I will take every opportunity to recommend you to other parents, knowing that your integrity and caring will make the overwhelming process of finding the right nanny easier.”
“We were in the rather unusual position of going from wanting to be parents, to adopting a child and discovering we were pregnant all within a two week period. With both of us in professional careers, we had a very short window to hire a nanny, and of course wanted Mary Poppins. I had been very impressed with one of dear friend’s nannies, and she directed me to Suzanne. Suzanne came to our home, sized up the situation, and with her gift for match making found us a professional career nanny, wonderful with our infants, who we often referred to as “Mary Poppins II.” When the time came for us to find a nanny for our then two year old boys, she shepherded us through the transition and found us a wonderful energetic nanny who gently, but firmly, guided our boys through the “terrible twos.” After recently deciding to resume her nursing studies, Suzanne once again has found a wonderful, professional nanny to get us through potty training, big beds and pre-school.
“Annie’s Nannies has come to our rescue many, many times. All of the nannies that we have hired through Annie’s Nannies have, without exception, been trustworthy, wonderful people. And our children have always loved them! Suzanne is a master at placing just the right nanny with the right family.”
“We like college-age nannies, but they graduate and move on. So we have had lots of nannies, and we found them all through Annie’s Nannies. The agency has helped us find the right nannies, even as our family needs and requirements have changed. And I really appreciate their help in the negotiating process.”
“Your agency was like a breath of fresh air. All three of you exuded professionalism, competence and caring… Every candidate you sent to me for an interview was outstanding… Thank you again for a job very well done.”
“So, after months of fruitless searches ourselves … Suzanne guided us through all the best practices and then, after thoroughly assessing our needs and goals, sent us an ideal candidate one week later. … Thank you, Suzanne.” – Appreciatively,
“…we continue to appreciate the hard work and detail that you and everyone who works with you demonstrate on a regular basis. Some of my co-workers struggling with childcare issues ask me why I’m willing to pay “high” fees for an agency hire – my answer to them is, “why mess with less?” I think your services are well worth your fees, as my peace of mind is priceless.”
Seattle Nanny Testimonials
“I read online about two agencies in Seattle that placed nannies…I contacted them both and was immediately contacted by Annie’s Nannies. The other agency I contacted was so cold and indifferent that I decided to just go with Annie’s Nannies. The Applicant Coordinator was really personable and as she went through the process I not only felt like I was working with a very experienced and professional company, but I was encouraged and supported through each step. She had me call her to hear what I was thinking, offer suggestions and made sure I knew what was next. I was hired by the family and again the Applicant Coordinator helped make sure each step went smoothly. I have GREAT hours, benefits, and I am treated so kindly.
I really can’t say enough kind things about Annie’s Nannies. They have made a difference in my life by helping me to find a dream job.”
“Suzanne, Your experience in this industry has been so helpful to me when searching for and taking high caliber nanny jobs. Your honesty and advice have been invaluable during my career. I have recommended your agency when speaking with other nannies and will continue to do so. I am a great fit with the family I am working for now and think this is the best job I have ever had! Thank you for all the work you put into my job search. “
“I started working part-time for Annie’s Nannies part time three years ago and it has been such a wonderful experience. The staff is so incredible; they really make you feel like part of the family. In addition, they try their best to work with your schedule to find the right job and family for you. Since I only worked part-time as a nanny, I had very limited hours, but that did not stop them from finding me jobs. They were very specific on what the needs of the family were and how I could best serve at my next job. Also, the staff at Annie’s Nannies would either call or email me a job opportunity and were very accommodating. The families I have worked for are amazing; I feel so blessed to have been able to meet them and watch their children. I would never want to work for another nanny agency because Annie’s Nannies has been so wonderful. The staff really goes above and beyond to make their nannies feel important and valued.”
“When I first moved to Seattle from a smaller town in Washington, I was intimidated by the job hunting process. I really didn’t know where to look for positions or who to talk to for advice. Annie’s Nannies changed everything! After completing all the necessary paperwork Annie’s Nannies immediately sent my resume out to families who were a good fit for me. I attended several interviews over the course of a week and then I let the job offers roll in! I was able to review my choices and make a decision as to which family worked best with me. I now have the most incredible job ever and I can’t imagine anything else that could offer me greater happiness! I could never have done it without Annie’s Nannies help and support.”
“What impressed me most about the staff at Annie’s is how tirelessly they worked to find a job that not only met my needs, but has also proved to be a great fit with regard to personality. Because they go into such depth with both clients and applicants, they are able to offer a great deal of insight to their nannies before a first interview is even scheduled. They responded very thoughtfully and truthfully to my feelings and intuition about the nature of each job they suggested. They were absolutely wonderful to work with, and it is their intense effort that would compel me to recommend them to anyone!”
“It has been such a pleasure working with you to find a great family. It is obvious to me how much you do to ensure all parties are content and informed of both the process and interviewers/interviewees. I am impressed and pleased with the personal quality with which you run your business. It is no surprise to me that you have received Agency of the Year. Thank you”
“Annie’s Nannies has been amazing to work with; they are, by far, the top agency in the area. Working for them took the stress out of finding a new job. They were professional, kept me informed, and answered any questions I had quickly and efficiently. I am now with a great family thanks to Annie’s Nannies!”
“I wanted to thank you and everyone else at Annie’s Nannies for the excellent job you all did for me. I have recommended you to several families who are looking for nannies and several women who are thinking about becoming nannies; I don’t know if any of them ever contacted you, but I had nothing but good experiences with all of you! If you ever want to use me as a reference for potential families or potential nannies, please feel free to contact me.”
“I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for all your support these last few months…I’ve found myself thinking about how lucky I was to have gone through Annie’s Nannies. I’m looking forward to working with you for many years to come!”
“Suzanne, thanks so very much for all the wonderful prospective families! Your diligence has been beyond impressive and your candor and upbeat charm – a true pleasure to work with.”
“I wish to take just a few moments to thank you. You may not believe this, but some other agencies in the Seattle area are not as professional as you have been. Your positive attitude, polite manner, and great telephone etiquette made it such a joy to communicate with you over the phone. I really look forward to working with you and your agency during my job search.”
“I wanted to let you all know how much I appreciate the great service you provided me and how when I called, someone was almost always available to talk or answer my questions/concerns. You truly are the luxury agency. I will whole-heartedly recommend you to whomever I come across in the future because I know you take care of your nannies!”
“Thank you so much for letting me be apart of this wonderful team of nannies. I am so thankful for this opportunity!”
“Thanks to everyone for providing me work while waiting for my full time position! I truly enjoyed working for each family, and felt quite appreciated by them. You’re a great team!”

“I just wanted to say thank you for all you have done to help me find a job. I really like the family I’m with and it’s all because of you. Annie’s Nannies is the best agency I have ever worked with.”
“I just wanted to let you both know that I really appreciate all the work you both did on my behalf. You communicated very well and put in thoughtful effort to try and fin me the right fit. Thanks so much!”
“To the Ladies of Annie’s Nannies: Thank you so much for the great opportunity to interview with you this past Monday. I appreciate your patience with your “out-of-town applicant!” I feel a relationship between your agency and myself would be a perfect match. The combination of professionalism and positive energy was evident in your office and made me feel right at home. Thank you again for your time. I look forward to working with you!”
“I wanted to thank you ladies for all that you’ve done for me. Moving to a new city and starting over, knowing absolutely no one, is definitely a scary undertaking. But you made it so much less so for me. I truly appreciate the effort you all afforded me and I can’t tell you enough how much I appreciate your willingness to give me a chance. I couldn’t be happier with my position! I absolutely adore the baby and the family! Plus, know that I can always call you if I am sick or just need a day off, makes things much less stressful. Annie’s Nannies really is all that it claims to be. It’s no wonder your name is widely recognized and regarded as one of the best. Thanks again for everything you do!”
“I wanted to thank you again for all your help and enthusiasm. I am really looking forward to starting with (the family). I am so grateful for your kind recommendations. You have made my transition to the Seattle area much easier.”
“Hello Ladies! I just thought I should thank you for all your wonderful and prompt assistance in helping me find a job as a nanny! I can see why your establishment is the best!”
