Restoring the ArtRestoring the Art® is a Colorado Non-Profit 501 (c)(3). Restoring the Art® has been guided over the years by an advisory board made up of Starkey Alumni, Household and Estate Industry Veterans, Butlers, Military Enlisted Aides, Private Chefs, Personal Assistants, Employers, Luxury Hotels, Private Service Schools, Placement Agencies, and Vendors who serve the Luxury Marketplace. In recent years, RTA has focused on Starkey Alumni with yearly gatherings to learn and grow together.  We have hosted wonderful 9 course dinners and garden parties at the Mansion with all our patrons, alumni and friends. We have experienced wonderful stories about the Queen from our British guests; gained perspective from the Director of Service of the Ritz Paris; tasted special wine and spirits from the finest wineries around the world; and have been introduced to the finest of luxury products.

Today, RTA provides educational funding assistance for military students. In appreciation for Starkey Benefactor, The Satter Foundation, and Patron support, Starkey gratefully acknowledges and honors them; and for Starkey Graduates, Starkey challenges all to grow educationally to their fullest potential.

Dear Starkey Graduates,

We are extending a warm invitation for our Starkey Weekend Retreat this October. We will be hosting a first-come, first-served intimate gathering of 20 Graduates at The Starkey Mansion. Come to connect, rejuvenate and be inspired!

It’s hard to work in this profession alone. Come to work through the challenges and celebrate the wonderful opportunities you share with your fellow Service Hearts.

Our first gathering last fall was so well-received that we want to keep serving our Graduates to grow in their professions in the safe, luxurious environment of The Starkey Mansion.

Relax with our morning yoga/meditation sessions, or book a massage with our private masseuse. We will also be offering four relevant and fun workshops designed to serve you in thriving in your roles as Household/Estate Managers.

Come prepared to share your stories, enjoy your friendships and restore the art of Private Service.

Testimonial: B. Drummond

There are no words to express how ridiculous these accusations are. This seems like an act of an individual that wants to shame and misjudge a woman that has worked hard to make her name and brand in this country, a woman that has been the aide of and for so many members of the African American community and many others from various countries myself included.

Testimonial: J. Bates

Starkey International, is the best Estate and Household mngmt program in the country and arguably the world. As a graduate of both the standard and advanced course; as a practicing manager of a 50k sq ft primary and multiple residence operation; having a degree in hotel/restaurant mnmgt and been in military service for 24 years I feel fairly qualified to make these following statements.
