Very flexible about what you may desire  to homesit / manage your home/estate.  Quite able to travel for you should that be necessary.

I provide my own transportation & resources.

It is not important for me to know why you will be away, where you will be or what you will be doing. However, it would not be what you have envisioned, if you are constantly concerned about your home, property or animals. I remove that concern so you can either deal with, or enjoy whatever the circumstances you are about to embark on. My reviews attest to this.

I am only a phone call/email away. 

Once on-site, I rarely leave the premises except to shop, attend church or an occasional outing. I make certain there is no predictability as to my comings or goings. I provide all I require for bed, bath, kitchen and day to day living.

I am not there to deplete your resources.  My main goal is for you & yours to have a mindset free of any concern regarding your property &  care of your animals while you are away.

Upon your return, I want you to look around & be almost convinced that you’d never left & I was never there.

I carry a State Farm Insurance Policy to protect both of us.
