Hello and welcome to our profile!  We are Connie and Marty from the Midwest region of the United States.  We recently retired from our careers at Caterpillar where we had the wonderful opportunity to spend six years living in France and three years living in England.  Since that time we have caught a travel bug that cannot be cured.  House caring has given us a unique perpective where we have the chance to live like you, a local! 

We have taken care of many homes since joining housecarers .  We have tended gardens in France, dog sat in Berkeley, cared for the largest botanical garden on the island of Nevis in the Caribbean, and watched a cat and chickens in Australia.  We have always been a couple that takes great care of our belongings, as well as cleanly and organized (no shoes allowed in our home!).

Our hobbies align perfectly with the usual house caring needs of homeowners.  When our children were young, we raised two golden retrievers that were originally supposed to be "outside dogs".  After several weeks they became "basement dogs" that turned to "first floor dogs" that quickly became family.  We have a soft spot for animals and have owned both dogs and cats.  Connie currently volunteers at an animal shelter for her animal loving needs. 

Since having our son and daughter we have tended to a personal garden where we have grown many vegetables including tomatoes, cucumbers, zuchhini, green peppers, and lettuce. We have always been fond of landscaping and have spent many thereupeutic hours growing vibrant flowers, pulling weeds, raking leaves, and sculpting bushes. 

We appreciate you checking out our profile and look forward to the opportunity to take care of your home!
