There is nothing more secure than having people at home while you're away. Get a house sitter.
cary - experienced sitter
55+, retired enterprise architect
I am a single non-smoking fit and active female, who enjoys good health and is honest, well organised, trustworthy, reliable, flexible and a good communicator. I have no pets or caravan.
Having sold my home, "sitting" seemed to be a mutually beneficial opportunity for both myself and home, pet and garden owners alike, while trying to find my "dream" location to call "home".
I have been fortunate enough to be a full time sitter for the past three and a half years. I offer experience with dogs, cats, birds, hens and fish; gardens of varying sizes, inclusive of acreage and the maintenance of pools.
Past owners have offered to provide references; if possible I would prefer to be short listed and have a telephone "chat" with a future owner prior to passing on the names and 'phone numbers of the referees. Most times these conversations prove beneficial and enlightening to both parties and former owners need not be disturbed. I do hope you understand. the respect and security I need to offer all owners. This framework has evolved on an as needs basis and I accept that I may miss out on some sits by not offering my, or owners names/phone no.'s until after the first conversation with a prospective owner.
Finally, I welcome any questions as I know it is important for you to feel comfortable with my character and ability, before I am entrusted with all that is valuable to you.
