Anyone have any thoughts on the matter, or favor one over the other? Why?

With an individual housekeeper, you have a personal relationship with someone. It's much easier to communicate, and give feedback. Afterall, they're working to meet your individual standards, not their agency's.

more personal, and usually quite a bit cheaper.

An agency, you may get different cleaners and a whole different quality of cleaning, and in my experience they also charge more. Im sure they come with a guarantee and a good reputation. When you get an individual, you always know who is in the home and what kind of work to expect, not to mention you can develop a good business relationship with this person and it probably wont cost you extra for a few extras now and then. I guess its just a matter of preference.
