Semi-retired couple available to travel to house sit your home. I am a retired firefighter/paramedic and I have a very active "handyman" business. But I set my own hours and select my own jobs. We or I can travel and often do to help our children / grandchildren that are in military families; especially when husbands are deployed. Past history: 3 yrs in military, Federal Bureau of Investigation (fingerprint tech), 20 years fighter/paramedic, 50 yrs in "construction" so I can perhaps do some painting, etc. at the same time. Why housesit: my knees are getting older and I do not want to continue to climb tall ladders and get on high roofs so looking for other enjoyable source of income. We are very honest and responsible, do not drink or smoke and are respectful of other peoples belongings. We are very good with pets (and children). I can provide many, many business client references as well as personal ones. We can pass any back... read more

Greetings! I've worked in Live Broadcast TV in Chicago for 30+ years, freelancing for Oprah, CBS, NBC, FOX, and love it. Because of technology and competition however, the TV industry is cutting way back on hiring, so I'm looking for some other ways to add to my income. When I was a student at Trinity International University in Deerfield/Bannockburn, IL I enjoyed doing a lot of house sitting to pay for school. Recently, the last of my 4 kids has become independent so I have a lot more time and flexibility to house sit.Pets are great. I grew up with German Shepherds and I have 2 cats now that are adorable like yours. One of my sons lives with me and takes care of them when I'm not at home.Let me know if you have any questions. read more
Hi, My name is Ralph and I'm looking for quality house sitting assignments around the world, but specifically in Europe, around the Mediterranean. IntroductionI'm a professional travel photographer, author, public speaker and experienced international tour organizer, and I often have anywhere from 5 days to 2 months or more in between work assignments when I can be in one place and free to make my own hours and work on other projects. What's great is that I can work from anywhere in the world with access to reliable Internet access (please let me know if this may be an issue at your home and know that it's not as much of a problem if there are reliable alternatives nearby like Internet cafes or other workspaces to log on). As a matter of fact, I’m what’s come to be referred to as “location independent.” I’m a digital nomad with a camera and laptop, and no permanent home, and I have been for 7+ years now, so I know what it’s like to be ... read more
Hey!! I’m Hannah and I just recently enrolled myself into online college classes to pursue the career of my dreams (psychology - I like to try to understand and support everyone in any way that I can), but need a side gig to help fund my everyday expenses and maybe even help with outrageous school funds. My goal here is to build a fun, trustworthy, genuine relationship with families and/or individuals who could use an extra hand while they are busy or unable to tend to their animals and everyday tasks. If I had to describe myself in three words when it comes to caring for other people and their possessions, I would say I am definitely open-minded, detail-oriented and respectful. Everyone deserves stress-free vacation time or extra help when they are unavailable and I’m here to assist you!I have cared for all different kinds of animals since I was just a little girl whether they were my own, a friends, or family members (fish, ferrets, rabbits, lizards, dogs, cats, etc). Every pet i... read more
