About this sitter

I recently retired from the University of Oregon and a career in media and arts management, My husband, Jan retired from City/County Management after 40 years. We have traveled extensively and love the opportunities to experience new places. We recently discovered the joy of extended visits in an area and time to appreciate the day to day life in new environments.

Why they want to house sit

It is an opportunity to stay somewhere for an extended time. We own an extended family home in Oregon. Housesitting will stretch our travel budget and let us enjoy places we may not otherwise be able to venture. Having pets to watch over is excellent as they make any house a home.

Their experience

We have had many wonderful dogs and cats over the years - they have been so important to us and we understand how important they are to you. We have a lot of experience in taking care of our own home and as renters and owners in many places, we had some wonderful homes and always respected "our" homes and left with excellent references.

What can they bring to the assignment

Dependability, reliability, kindness, fun, and maturity. During our careers, we have been bonded and had background checks.. We have both had professional careers where we were entrusted with large scale projects and budgets. We are both excellent communicators and we enjoy meeting new pets (and people)!

We couldn't have done better ourselves!

There are many reasons to have house sitters. Primarily, it's to make sure responsible and watchful eyes are on your home and property. Secondly, and probably more important than the first, to give you peace of mind when you're far from home. Jan and Faith Wellman gave us these - security and peace of mind. They have proven they are responsible, vigilant, and very communicative. We came back to a home - and a cat - that were well cared for. We consider them friends!
