House Pet Sitting Profile
Well experienced Vice President of Valuation & Advisory Services for International real estate firm for 24 years - travelled for many years internationally - During my travels, I was always under time pressure and bound by busy schedules or meeting agendas. House sitting suits right now, as it allows me to experience different countries and cultures, cuisines and languages without being in a rush. I have a huge bank of holiday time which must be utilized in the next 18 months.
Lived in variety of countries for various periods of time, (lived for 5 years in Australia), I am an animal lover (had all sorts of pets most of my life), a nature lover, NON-smoker, light drinker, don't use drugs.
Can adjust my schedule to locations available and appealing to me with a preference for longer assignments. Please note I travel among Central America and the Caribbean regularly.
Technically inclined so I can handle a lot of issues which may occur. If a house sit involves some "guest" services, such as B&B or rental management I have considerable experience and can manage, although some specifics would need to be discussed.
It can be utterly frustrating and annoying to return to a home and find things in disorder, broken and/or plainly neglected. Thus, we take care with other peoples' property and belongings.
Hardly ever pass an animal without acknowledging it with a touch or a friendly word. Have no problem if accidents need to be cleaned up or daily brushings are required.
Creative – while being a practical problem solver, good management skills - hospitality experience - Dogs are my passion - have had many over the years - can do gardens on maintenance basis. Considerate to neighbors and can blend in, in any type of environment or culture. I have equally earned acceptance and respect from neighbors in Canada, Central and South America or Australia. Happy to supply reference(s) upon request and a police report is available.
