We are experienced homeowners and rental owners for the last 30+ years, and now both work 100% remote (hmmm...there was something good that came out of the pandemic.) We are very active and always looking for a new adventure or challenge. It is hard to quantify what we are looking for in a house sit because we have no expectations. Rather than travel, we love wandering. Having both had our same jobs for over 20 years, it was a new experience to take them totally remote. So we are open to all opportunities, but I personally love doing handyman projects, and yardwork.
We love our home on the water in Kemah, TX, and never plan to leave, so housesitting is a great opportunity to experience a different area and possibly a new culture for a short period of time without uprooting our lives. We also love to meet new friends, and have found over the years that there are no strangers, just friends we haven't met yet! So if you have animals that need walked and played with, or a garden that needs tended, we can dive right in, so you can go out on your own adventure!.
We have owned homes for over 30 years and have owned single family rental homes since 2009. Since we got into the rental business on a "trial by fire" basis, we have seen a lot that has given us experience. "Ever have 2 houses blow water heaters within 72 hours?" Yep, and it had to start on the weekend. If it can break, we have broken it and learned how to fix it....or who to call. As for pets, we have had 2 cats, one for 18 years. But our biggest love is dogs. We have had 2 Goldens for 15 and 14 years, one of which was a rescue, and now have a 7 year old Black Lab. Our last Golden was a therapy dog as I work in Senior Healthcare Sales. So over the years, we have learned how to fix broken homes and have had our hearts broken (and lifted) by our pets. And every home or pet has been completely unique.
Having raised two kids and having been a flight and sailing instructor, I have learned how to deal with crises when they arise, by the process of "trial by fire". As an HR director, my wife has learned to be very pragmatic and disciplined. So when a crisis arises we handle it from both sides of the spectrum. We have dealt with sick animals, both temporary and terminal, and have found that a warm touch is often their best medicine. But from a practical standpoint, we have fixed about every item that can break in a house at least 2 or 3 times over the years. If you are looking for reliable, we have it in spades. We have both been at our jobs for over 2 decades. But mainly, we are both looking forward to meeting you, and at the very least, hearing about your adventure!
