We are a mature American couple with Australian citizenship, good health, non smokers / drinkers, and keen walkers. We really enjoy house sitting / pet minding and have been doing it full time since September '09 with many great references. Arriving as expats in 1992, we have leased many homes on Sydney’s North Shore (all with pools and gardens.) Some homes were furnished, one came with a prized cat to care for and one required oversight of a renovation. So far, nothing has been beyond our capabilities. We always receive rave reviews on our work -- and are happy to provide numerous references. Our motto has always been to leave a home nicer than we found it! We are quite flexible as our four kids and pets have all left “the nest”. Gary recently retired having worked in healthcare information technology. Marci worked as a casual nanny before retiring, so was entrusted with houses, cars, pets - and of course, children. We have extensive experience in home ownership and feel capable of handling any situation that arises. We would care for your property and precious pets as if they were ours. We have police clearance as well as FBI clearance, so you might say we are squeaky clean! We would love to get to know you and determine if we are the right folks to care for your precious pets and home!
