About Jack Allen:

Retired classical music radio CEO. Art & Antique collector. Pet owner until recently. Manager mindset.

I have done home care/pet care for a Michelin chef in upstate NY, caretaker for the Verbeck House (National Bottle Museum) in Ballston Spa, NY, winter house-sitting for a wealthy homeowner in St. Paul, MN, winter care for a top realtor in Lake Oswego, OR and year-round house-sitting for an engineer in Austin, Texas. I have been caring for properties since 1980. This site only allows a 10-year window. Just signed up on this site, so no direct references can be seen, as of yet. Currently on a 3 month job caretaking/housesitting/pet-sitting in the South of France.

I am also a property owner of a home in Harrisonburg, VA used as an AirB&B when I am out of the country. I understand how properties work and function best.

Private, fastidious, passionate, creative, vigilant. I am very flexible and have a good eye for micro-changes around your property. I am an expert at security. On-site or occasional visits, mail brought in, plants watered, pets cared for, lawns mowed, gardens tended, snow removal, light repairs, check-ins with neighbors, dealing with vendors or contractors - my focus on your property is serious and as broad as you require. 

I have traveled the world extensively: Russia, New Zealand, South Africa, Europe. I am warm, outgoing, a people person. I drive a 2016 Jeep, 2001 BMW and own a vintage 1954 Chevy pick-up. 

Non-smoker, occasional drinker. Physically active.

All of my references are not registered with this site, thus the 3-star rating. One of my more recent clients offers her cell phone for my reference: Joelle Lewis, Lake Oswego 503-407-8586

Thanks for the consideration!

All the best,

Joelle Lewis

Homeowner in Lake Oswego, Oregon

While family wintered in the Caribbean, I managed their property, took in mail, shoveled snow from walkways and driveway, and cared for their dog. I was entrusted with all pass-codes for the property and held accountable for 24 hour security.
