About this sitter

Tom and Norma are retired marketing executives with deep experience in home owning (having owned and managed 6 houses), hosting (Airbnb for 8 years) and traveling (having visited 40 countries). As hosts of our home accommodation in Corrales, New Mexico we earned Super Host status and a five-star rating over eight years of operation. We are animal lovers and handy around a house, fixing light-maintenance projects and maintaining a clean, working home and property.
We are non-smokers, have an excellent credit rating and no criminal records.

Why they want to house sit

Tom and Norma are enthusiastic travelers. We enjoy immersing ourselves into different cultures, customs and cuisine. We love all types of animals - though because we travel, we do not own any currently. We are technology savvy and problem solvers should anything come up.

Their experience

We have been Super Hosts on Airbnb and have had six successful MindMyHouse assignments (3 in 2018, 3 in 2019), caring for two indoor cats, 3 outdoor cats on a cattle ranch with mowing gardening and general upkeep, 2 senior dogs and 2 junior dogs and 14 cattle on a 52 acre property, 2 dogs and an indoor cat, 2 senior dogs and a cat, and 2 indoor siberian cats and outdoor birds. References furnished upon request.
We have owned many homes and lived in, taken care of, and rented them.

What can they bring to the assignment

A love of all animals! See above for the specific animals we have taken care of.

Testimonials

Highly Recommend!

We were so fortunate to have Norma and Tom stay in our home for a little over two months this past summer. We appreciated their communication leading up to their arrival and also while we were away. The updated us anytime something seemed different with our kitties and also reached with questions regarding preferred cleaning methods for special items around the house as they wanted to be careful not to damage anything. Our home was immaculate when we returned home. They even noticed that I liked fresh flowers and left me a fresh bouquet for when we returned home. So very thoughtful! What we most appreciative of was their thoughtful care when a tropical storm passed through the area. We felt badly that they had to deal with this unforeseen event, but they prepared our home, the kitties, and the outdoor area without a blink of an eye (maybe even better than we would have!) We couldn't give this couple a more glowing review! We are so happy they enjoyed the area and our local beaches while they were here & we welcome them back anytime.

Impeccable!

Norma and Tom did a marvelous job of caring for our large home, our two cats, and all the little details for a 3 week period while we were out of the country. I recommend them 100%!

Fabulous!

I highly recommend Norma and Tom as conscientious, considerate, and dependable house sitters. They cared for our home as if it were their own and provided updates to let us know all was well. Norma is a top-notch communicator and Tom is a total dog lover. We returned to happy pets and a spotless house. I would be delighted to have them stay again in the future!
