Hi! My name is Grace Helu-Lara. I am a Certified Personal Concierge. I am a Notary Public and a pet sitter. I founded Avantcierge because I have a passion for helping people get the most out of their lives in this busy and demanding world.

Fluent in English, Spanish and German, I have many years of experience as a professional translator and desktop publisher. I am also skilled in graphic design, web design and multi-lingual transcription. I have a B.S. in Biology. Having been self-employed for more than two decades, I am highly organized and skilled at managing time.

The Bay Area has been my home for over 25 years. I am based in the City of Alameda—just a few minutes away from Oakland, Berkeley, San Leandro and other major cities of the East Bay.

I am committed to providing highly personalized, professional services designed to meet my clients’ specific needs.
