We are a couple in our early 30's who have lived in many different places. We were calling Austin, Texas our home, but now we're 'on the road' and are traveling to new locations to care for animals and homes while exploring local communities.
We are responsible, professional, low-key non-smokers and can take care of pets, plants, home repairs, yard maintenance, gardens or land.
Be sure to check out our dozens of reviews from both TrustedHousesitter (THS) homeowners and the 'External' homeowners we've received over the last few years (it's all on our THS profile). We also went through THS's 'Enhanced' verification and police check. You can see all of this by clicking on our 'References' file here on Housecarers.
Why we want to house sit
We are adventurous. We like to get a taste for new locations and new communities. We are well-traveled and after doing numerous house sits, we've found that it's the perfect option for us. We don't have many possessions, so being able to take loving care of someone else's home is appealing.
What we bring to the assignment / relevant experience
Before becoming homeowners, we spent years as active subletters & house sitters, which allowed us to become very used to respecting the different homes we've lived in. We understand how important peace of mind is to a homeowner, which is why we always give updates during house sits if the owner wants them. We've learned how to gain the trust of homeowners by showing consideration for their house and furnishings.
We know how to care for all kinds of pets/animals as well as plants and are very handy if any small household repairs are ever needed. We have done quite a bit of landscaping and organic gardening in the past -- we definitely have green thumbs, and aren't afraid to get our hands dirty.
