About Patti Edgar:

Why I want to house sit:

I  love to travel and learn about new places , cultures and cuisines- -- house sitting is a perfect way to do that. My children are grown, so I have the freedom to travel.


About Me:

I am a mature, positive, responsible, quiet and independent woman. I grew up in the “World” as my dad was career USAF! I'm open to most locations. I'm self-employed, as a home based Travel agent. Also I love to cook, have a food blog and videos on making soups and delicous food. Most of the last 30 years I have been in Prince William County (Manassas area) of VA as an active member of the business community, the local Chamber of Commerce and charitable organizations. I am a retired Mary Kay Senior Director.    Both of my parents were from PA-(Philly-Sunbury-Hamburg), so I have lots of family in PA and NJ. I am a mom of 2 daughters and Nanny to 3 granddaughters.


Previously, I have lived in:

MI, NY, PA, GA, ME, MD and VA, Also lived in Japan as a kid.

I'm looking for opportunities to see more of the world through house-sitting. Just about any location is welcome! 


Previously, I house sat for my friends mother's home when she had to move out of it. They did not want the house to stay vacant. Then for a wonderful couple in Warrenton VA several times this year for their "boys" -a kitty and dog. Was also in NC to care for a very nice gentleman's 3 kitty's this spring. For a month I sat for Drake, a standard poodle, in Arlington VA.


Why I'm a great house sitter:

- I love pets and miss having my own! I have had dogs and bird. I also have had a cat that tolerated me. I'll give your pets all the love and attention they need!

- I've leased *many* apartments, and while I recognize leasing is not the same as house- sitting, it does require you to take care of someone else's property while you're there. I also owned several homes, so I understand how crucial it is for a tenant (or house-sitter!) to care for the property. Your home will be well taken care of by me. I will treat it with the love and respect it is due.

- I'm a quick learner and eager to learn new things -- anything you need me to take care of that I don't already have experience in, I'll find a way to learn how to do it!

- I'm a non-smoker.


I will be happy to provide personal and business references as well.


I hope you will allow me to care for your home when you are away.
Have a great day!

Patti watched our house from Jan 20 - 31, 2016. During this time our area was hit by a significant snowstorm. She did an outstanding job caring for our 2 pets and looking out for our house during the significant snow event. She is very personable and easy going. We will definitely call on her again when we need house/pet sitting services.
