Together we are handy around the house and have recently upgraded our rental in Texas. We are clean, mature and have no vices.  Let us care for your property as you would.

We are a reliable couple who enjoy traveling, cooking and fully recognize the importance of caring for someone's home. 

We are both fluent in Spanish. Joe also speaks Portuguese. 

Why We Want to House Sit

We enjoy traveling and we are open to the experience of visiting various countries.  Our current schedule provides us the opportunity to house sit while learning about other cultures and cities around the world.

We are Non-smokers - No drugs - and we are physically fit to adapt to just about any dwelling ranging from a home, apartment, or small ranch.

Our Experience

We understand the value of maintaining and caring for a home and have personally owned our homes for more than 25 years.

We are a tidy couple and we will be very pleased to care and safeguard your home.  We are also happy to provide routine updates while you are away.

What Can We Bring to the Assignment?

Throughout our military career, we have been stationed at duty assignments ranging from Hawaii to the Middle East and bring a wealth of cultural experience.

Select us to manage and maintain the safety and upkeep of your home because we fully comprehend the importance and responsibility of caring for a residence.  We will treat yours as our own.
