30 successful years with the original AT&T. Honorably discharged USAF. Consistent, successful, fulltime homesitting since 2009 in California, Florida, Idaho, Maine, Maryland, NW Montana, North Carolina, Virginia & Washington. A number of  positions are repeats.

Available NATIONWIDE including Alaska. Single man, children grown & very successful. 

**Specializing in Severe, Extreme & Unusual situations, conditions & Isolated locations.

Services available to care for homes, estates, farms, cabins, large or small.

I have cared for homes up to 12,000 sq. ft. Oldest home, a very large Plantation Manor House built in 1812 on a 106 acre sheep farm. Currently operating  as a B&B for owners.

Medium to long-term preferred.

Excellent nationwide references.  IMPECCABLE credentials, reputation & background.

VERY clean, orderly, discreet & self-reliant.

Quite capable & equipped to handle all situations, specifically regarding maintenance & security of your property & contents.

Many of my positions required care for cats, dogs, horses, sheep. They are most welcome! I love animals & enjoy their presence & caring for them! I have never encountered a problem with any of the animals that I have been charged with!

Can deploy an independent, triple redundant, temporary, portable, interior and exterior security & surveillance system to protect your home, property, barns and outbuildings.

Anything approaching the security perimeter within 300’ is immediately detected by either one or all three systems that report to my smartphones.

My systems have remote reporting fire alarms, smoke detectors, temperature sensors, water sensors as well as motion detectors & glass break detectors. I can access the systems immediately and, via live video, monitor the premises.

Experienced with fireplaces (wood & gas), wood and pellet stoves, ancient fireplaces used for cooking as well as steam & hot  water radiator heating & anything more modern.

I keep ALL expenses; utility, heat, cooling & day to day,  at an absolute minimum.

Knowledgeable & experienced with antique furniture...American, English, French, and Flemish/Dutch. Paintings; Van Dyck, Rubens, Gainesboro/Gainesboro school, Titian.

Experienced with AC/DC power.  LP,  gas and diesel generators to 1200kw, with & without automatic transfer switches.

I have owned five homes over the years & successfully raised my three children and our household pets and fish! A nonsmoker. I have no pets of my own.

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. My intention is to remove that concern so you can either deal with, or enjoy, whatever the circumstances you are about to embark on.

I will be only a phone call  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 most 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 & the care of your animals while you are away.

Upon your return, once we've bid our farewells & I’m gone, I want you & yours 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.


Stipend, when appropriate. Travel expenses may be requested unless otherwise decided.

Additional and significant employment & personal information available to serious inquiry. Thank You for your consideration!
