Hello, we are Kurt and Ann. I am a retired Police Officer. I first worked as a Law Enforcement K-9 officer for four years in the United States military. I both worked with a canine and trained the dogs. Following that I went into civilian Law Enforcement where I served another 34 years in Law Enforcement. I worked for two different Cities with the last 28 years of my 38 years in law Enforcement for the City of Bellevue, Wa. The fourth largest city in the State of Washington. Situated next to Seattle. I have been retired for 2 1/2 years. I have always traveled but travel extensively now that I am retired. My goal was always to travel and study languages, a passion of mine.
Ann's home state is Georgia. Ann has always had her hand in private business. Currently Ann owns her own company where she writes and publishes books/booklets/pamphlets for postnatal care. This allows Ann to work from anywhere in the world with wifi.
In the past two and a half years we have traveled to a dozen or more countries. Taken six cruises around the U.S, and the globe. I note this to let you know we are experienced travelers and comfortable around the world.
We are new to the idea of house sitting. We enjoy spending time in different areas and countries. We like extended time in new places. Not just a two day hello and goodbye.
We are new to house-sitting in particular, however, we are very experienced in running short term rental property. We have a beautiful estate in Marietta, GA that has been a luxury vacation rental for the past 2+ years. It is a beautiful resort-style property maintained to a very high standard.

. THIS is the attention to detail that we would bring to your home and family pets. We understand that your house is also YOUR HOME.
We have built decks, roofs (porch and home), done full electrical, plumbing, pool maintenance, landscape design and application, irrigation etc. I note this to let you know that we would not do these chores to your home but want you to rest assured knowing that in an emergency. Water leaks, power outages, irrigation leaks. Those things that can go wrong with a house, we have experienced. We know how to react and how to stop a small problem from escalating to something catastrophic.
For animals. I trained dogs and have a lot experience with animals. Ann has owe up to 9 dogs at one time. The infirm, the injured, the old the beaten. Ann's heart for animals cannot be filled. There is always room.
