Not sure how to go about suspending our account so we figured we would just place a note right here at the top. We are currently UNAVAILABLE TO ACCEPT ANY assignments as of this day until further notice.

**** UPDATE ****


I’m Michael. My wife Brenda and I are very interested in assisting in maintaining your home, caring for your dog(s), cat(s), fish and other furry even, scaley family members. Although we are new at house sitting we have lived quite a varied and blessed life as parents and grandparents. We are both retired military members who have had the opportunity to travel extensively overseas, being responsible for not only our individual households which we have owned from coast to coast, but also multi-million dollar aircraft and the equipment to maintain them. From the use of small hand tools to auxiliary power units, oxygen producing carts, and emergency flight equipment for aircrew personnel.

We are now at the point in our lives where, our children are off on their own, the grandchildren are starting school and beginning to form parts of their individual personalities. We want to take some time to ourselves and help others in the way of ensuring that when they need that long earned vacation, must take care of that invariable family emergency, they are capable of doing so while knowing that their largest investment, and smallest/furry family members are well taken care of while away.

We want to be able to impart that we have been in the position of: where is that leak comng from, is that gas we smell, how do you replace a toilet, faucet, or balance the chemicals in a pool? Know when a pet needs a doctor and not just a bowl full of water. Understanding the difference between a blown light bulb and an actual emergency, while able to keep your head about you. We of course have dealt with the typical minor repairs of home ownership including in our last home maintaining a lined saltwater pool (37 x 19) with salt generator, completing daily and weekly water test and completing our own chemical balancing.

I’m sure we have not worked out all the bugs on our end in regards to the required posting information, but have endeavored to complete all required fields to give you as much information as possible to make an informed choice. Brenda and I are NOT looking for compensation while house sitting. We simply expect to arrive at your location using our funds, but do not expect to have to cover any expenses other than our transportation and food.

Brenda and I are currently located in the Tidewater area of Virginia (Chesapeake, VA) and are beginning a new chapter in our lives and hope that we can have an opportunity to begin it, by assisting you with your house sitting needs. We are NON-smokers, we do not drink other than the occassional (birthday, holiday, etc.). Additionally, we will be uploading several references from 2004 to the present along with current background checks from the city of Chesapeake, VA.

If there are any further questions or concerns please feel free to contact us through the normal site contacts. We hope to hear from you soon and please have a great day.
