House Sitter in Los Angeles

I will be available to house-sit in LA for all of August 2017. I have a car. By trade, I'm a freelance writer specializing in Macintosh, web & travel. As I can write from wherever I call home, I am able to house-sit & truly care for your home while you're away. I've had security clearance to be near a Presidential candidate & teach in CA. In early September I will be leaving California to travel the world for a year or two. My first big trip was 3 years traveling solo around most of the world. Then I stayed put for my Mac career. In 2011 I gave away almost everything I owned to have the freedom to travel. Now I explore the world for a year or more, then stay "home" in LA for a year or so, then go out again. I have friends all around the world who invite me to come visit and many that are waiting for me. (I've had a sublet in LA for quite a while this year. It ends July 31.) But the last time I was in LA for a year, I house sat that entire time, returning to most homes several times in that year. My sitting, from a NY Brownstone to Historic Registry homes in LA, to other countries has been word of mouth so far, so listing here is new to me. I am a responsible adult. I take care of homes as if they were prized possessions, keep in touch w/you while you're gone if you wish, look after everything from dishes to your car. Trash goes out, things stay clean, cars started or moved, plants cared for, gardens watered, even light bulbs changed and refrigerators cleaned. I have also taken care of home offices. For pets, it's best we discuss. I am great with small pets (which have included guinea pigs and rabbits) sometimes including small & clean dogs. I have not provided a rate as that depends upon the location, pets, your pet's schedule, etc. I am seeking to be within an easy distance from Fairfax/Hancock Park/Park LaBrea. I actually have a place to live in Redondo Beach and enjoy staying there, but I also love to experience living in new locations and frankly, being closer to family and many friends. My house-sitting clients have happily provided references. They'd be happy to speak with you. However, I don't feel right putting their names and phone numbers online, so I don't think I can post their words here. I do have their words online on my travel blog but I'm not sure I can post an external URL here. Oh, in case I get swamped and don't get to update this all again, the phone number I have provided here goes away when I fly and I'll replace it with my voice mail number. The one I gave here is easier for texting and is more direct. Please know this just in case.
