House Sitter in Oakland

I am responsible and reliable with long house-owning experience, long pet-owner experience, and have spent much time tending a garden and yard. Occupation: business consultant, relationship and personal growth coach, alternative conflict resolution; consulting to creatives at the nexus of art and commerce; career background: many years in music business, artist management, record producer, songwriting. picture at: facebook dot com/miles.hurwitz Why I want to house-sit: Downsized from large home (in Montclair area of Oakland hills) May 2016. Now enjoying the changing environments, discovery, and pet companionship of housesitting. My experience: I am great with animals, and, repeatedly, pet owners have commented how pets are at ease with me (sitting with or on me when those shy or skittish animals rarely do so with strangers and so on). I am responsible and confident in caring for plants, house functions, equipment and technology. House-sitting owners have all been quite complimentary on how I leave the house in clean and organized condition. (Feel free to give me a project or two you have been meaning to accomplish. I love to problem-solve, utilizing my creativity and resourcefulness.) My career involves coaching around crisis management, turn-arounds of troubled businesses, and guiding conflict resolution as an independent consultant, so crises or problems that might arise as you travel do not intimidate me.

We have known Miles for more than 10 years as he is our regular cat and house sitter. He takes care of our house and critters 2-6 times per year. He has never had a schedule conflict once he has confirmed he would be available. Our cats enjoy his visits as he even brings a small heating pad he puts in his bed for the cats. It becomes a nice "treat" that the cats get to sleep on the warm spot on his bed. We have had various house issues like a sump pump failure while he was house sitting and he has always gone above and beyond to fix and secure any house issues that come up. The house is always left neat and clean and he always asks before using any food/kitchen/laundry supplies. It isn't in my selfish interest to say he is the absolute best because others will book him and I will have to plan further ahead. He is so good, I will set my personal interests aside and say he is absolutely the best house and cat sitter we have ever used.

Miles has house sit for me in the past. He was trustworthy, took care of and was loving toward my cat, watered my plants, etc. When I came home my house looked nice and things were in their proper place. He had very positive and nice things to say about his experience staying in my home, which made me feel very good.

Miles is kind and considerate and left my home even better than when he arrived. I so appreciated that Miles let me know during my time away how things were going at home. I know Miles is extremely trust-worthy and responsiblle.

Miles and I have known each other for more than 30 years. I have asked him to watch my home (water plants, turn lights on and off, open windows to avoid stale smells, bringing in newspapers and mail, etc. many times for durations of up to 3 weeks. We always find our house cleaner than we left it even though we've given it a thorough "once over" before leaving. Miles has owned his own home, shares our desire to protect our investment, and respects our privacy. He's never run up our heating or water bills (we have no air conditioning) either. Is there anything else you need to hear to convince you? let me know.
