About this sitter

We are now retired from successful careers and have no children or pets at home anymore. We’ve raised 4 kids and many dogs, cats and even been in charge of horses during our time together. We seek new places and environments ! You can see more at my linked in profile that’s attached to our profile and Chris has been an internationally syndicated photographer: www.christopherbarr.com

Why they want to house sit

We have decided to do some traveling in the slow lane which means landing in other places for months and years at a time - not as tourists. Our skill sets allow us the opportunity to help others care for their Airbnb’s, homes and pets by trusted caregivers-us! At the same time we can begin a journey to new places.

Their experience

We are new to mind my house but not new to property management or customer service. We been professional property managers and in customer service for over 30 years in 5 different states. Christopher has designed and built several photography studios and has some construction skills too. Michelle is a licensed realtor with long term property management experience. Honest, reliable , solution oriented and peaceful ! I’ve included a picture of the Golden’s who are no longer with us and Chris’s “Grumpy cat” Photo. Chris is anything but grumpy though!

What can they bring to the assignment

We are compassionate, professional level individuals who will not disappoint anyone who entrusts their rental dwellings, homes or loved animals to our care. We have servant hearts and will honor, respect and maintain your property as our own. References will be provided and our FBI background checks are available when you request our services. Prefer longer terms however due to COVID we are now in the US and can do shorter term sits. We do have a valid international drivers license and do not smoke. Sometimes enjoy a glass of wine but not big drinkers either. We are homebodies but do look forward to seeing some of each place we visit. We are in finished a long term sit in Arizona in May 2020; and are in Colorado completing June sits.Our next sit in Ecuador was postponed due to Covid. Please reach out for your reservation needs- we do like long term as well.

Testimonials

Fantastic House Sitting Experience with Michelle and Chris!!!!

Michelle and Chris did an amazing job taking care of our house and watching our dog, chickens and plants. They left the house spotless and had great communication for the few weeks we were gone by sending us pictures of our dog on walks. They were super sweet and we would absolutely have them back to stay at our house! Thank you Michelle and Chris!!!
