We have a very dedicated, personal interest in taking care of properties as if they were our own. Both of us have been entrusted with a great deal of responsibility in our past workplaces/careers. We are educated and articulate, we can handle wood stoves and solar/wind systems! We have a four-wheel drive vehicle and have lived in the cold country (forty below in Eagle Nest NM qualifies). We built our own home on three acres and have lived in the hill country west of Austin, TX for thirty years. We understand home systems, are responsible, and maintain complete home security.  We are non-smokers and we will be as careful and protective of your home as you are. When you return, you will find your home clean and in order. 

We love our dogs and cats! For ten years, we bred Border Collies. We have owned Labs, Setters, Rescues, Tabbies, Calicos, and Kitties that just needed a home. We are both plant and tree lovers, gardeners, and bird watchers. We will enjoy watering for you and caring for plants, but wish to leave the yard maintenance to the professionals. 

A little about us ... We enjoy long walks, hiking a trail, sightseeing, museums and enjoying nature. We were/are both active in Scouting, providing leadership to youth for many years. Randy is an Eagle Scout and a Life Member of the Philmont Staff Association and Paula was awarded the Austin Tx Capitol Area District Award of Merit.

We believe we can help you take care of your home and pets during your absence in a manner and style that will let you feel comfortable about leaving for your adventures!  We love repeat house sits. We make friends with homeowners and love being regarded as their go-to housesitter! We are available by , Zoom, Facetime, , Facetime Messenger, or cell phone to discuss caring for your home and pets. We look forward to meeting you!

Thank you!

Randy and Paula

Knowing youre going to walk in the front door from time away, and everything's exactly as you left it, is two things: it gives folks the ability to TRULY relax while away, and is the mark of a pro. When Liz and I walked in the front door, we knew why Paula and Randy were pro's. 

They'll always be welcome back to take care of our little furry one's, and give us the ability to truly relax while away.

Thanks to you both!
