About Steven Lee:

Dear Homeowner/Property Manager:



I am writing to apply for the position of house sitter.  Please allow me to explain why I am the person you should trust with the responsibility of caring for your home.


Reasons I am looking to be your home sitter

I had a successful legal career in California.  In 2010 my wife Katherine and I moved to Utah.  She loved selling real estate.  In October 2020 Katherine, our 27 year old high-functioning autistic son who lived with us, and I all got COVID.  Five days later Katherine had a massive hemorrhagic stroke.  In January she suffered a heart attack.  Katherine went on hospice and died at home February 9, 2021, survived by her eight children and fifteen grandchildren.


I have sold or given away all but a storage unit full of ‘stuff’.  Recently my son moved out to live independently.  After 40 years I find myself alone.  So far this year I have driven more than 18,000 miles and flown almost as many searching for where I want to call home, although one daughter has advocated by my BFF who turns four in November.  House sitting seems to provide the perfect opportunity to explore where I want to settle down.


Qualifications to be your home sitter

I am a widower who lives alone.  I am honest, responsible, stable, mature, healthy, organized, and clean!  I don’t drink, smoke, or use recreational drugs.  I am a former home owner who has done general maintenance and repairs.  I am technologically savvy but not on social media.  I’ve had COVID and also have been fully vaccinated.  I have had dogs, cats, chickens, rabbits, and fish.  I am retired and my schedule is flexible.  I am willing to travel to your site.


I have life skills that provide substantial value.  I have worked with people of diverse backgrounds and cultures.  I have excellent written and oral communication skills.  I have managed people and projects.  I am a proactive and creative problem solver.  I understand how to set and manage budgets.



Thank you for your consideration.  I invite you to contact me so that we may discuss in greater detail why you can trust me to be responsible for your home.
