About this sitter

I am one of those regular, good, nice guys, a social entrepreneur, looking to make a move, for business purposes, to the San Francisco Bay Area. I have recently invested close to three years of time there and am currently looking for longer-term house- and dog-sitting opportunities to learn more about different areas in which to live before biting the bullet and making a more permanent move. I'm looking for situations with homeowners who value having their otherwise-empty space filled with good energy and knowing that everything is humming as it is supposed to hum in their absence. I like dogs who do not have special needs and cats are really not my thing but there's a little wiggle room on that with the right feline.

Why they want to house sit

Let's face it, house (and pet) sitting offers a cost-effective and flexible way for me to be in the SF Bay Area while I pursue my interests. More than that, however, I truly love the give-and-take, win-win nature of this type of arrangement. It is gratifying to know that homeowners appreciate my presence in their homes as much as I appreciate a comfortable place to stay while I tend to whatever needs attention for my work. I have engaged this arrangement from the homeowner side as well.

Their experience

Yes. Because I am brand new to MindMyHouse, I do not have testimonials from others here. However, I can provide several from people for whom I've sat -- with and without pets -- over the last few years. Additionally, I do not have a "police check." However, I passed FBI background checks in 2017 and 2018 in order to be a substitute teacher.

What can they bring to the assignment

Hyper-responsibility; excellent communication; great respect for the way things are in your home and household.

Testimonials

Deeply kind and loving pet sitter

I’m so extremely grateful Steven was available to watch my 2 doggies for a week. When I called Steven’s references, everyone raced about how wonderful he is. Both of my dogs have special needs and Steven was very accommodating and intuitive in dealing with them. One of my dogs is afraid of men and instantly warmed up to Steven! Steven sent photos and kept it touch with me over the week and was very good at communicating. When I got home, I could see how happy and at peace my doggies were after being with Steven. I can’t recommend him highly enough.
