Let us lovingly care for your home and fur family

52, Business Owner- Insurance Brokerage

51, Business Development Manager

Thank you for checking our profile.
And now about us

Let us introduce ourselves. Our names are Mark and Patricia Brown. We are a happily married couple, professional and responsible and are blessed to be able to explore and travel and have the freedom to do so.
We both have loved, raised and adored our fur, feather or small farm animal families and do not have any at this time, so it would be our pleasure to care for your pets with the greatest of love and care and to your very specific care requests.
Right now, we are considering only sits that are 14 days or more.

Mark is the owner of an insurance brokerage firm and has a masters in Public Administration.

I (Patricia) am also licensed as an insurance broker and help Mark with the business. We manage our business with our phones and computers. This gives us the flexibility to travel and stay as long as clients need us. Our business also requires intense background and credit checks for the insurance contracts we have with companies and individuals.

We respect the consideration of having people that you trust in your home and caring for your pets and property.

We have a based in Florida, but we travel so much for my side business ( all natural skin care line) and insurance that our house/pet/garden experience and passion for helping others and traveling all work out perfectly on this platform.

Mark and I work together as a team and have many assignments completed together.
We understand if you need a single female or just one person, some animals have difficulty adjusting to too much change, but Mark and I work as a couple.

We follow as best as we can the feeding, walking and play schedules for the animals and if it is just your home, then we both manage gardens, lawns, plants and other needs to show activity whilst you are away.

I (Patricia) have helped manage a dog walking and pet care small business in Florida and that included walking, feeding,administrating medicine and lots of love and care. I have also fostered labs until they found their forever homes.

I have had clients request and counted on me to house and pet sit for them. They obviously know and trust me, and I found great pleasure in being to help care for their fur family and taking care of the house holds inside and out. Cats, dogs, fish,and even a client had hedgehogs and ferrets. Most recently chickens :-)

Mark is very responsible and is meticulous with lawn care and fixing and managing household emergencies with an eye for perfectionism.

We are both professional, responsible, we do not drink or do drugs. We love nature, We love the outdoors, love the mountains, hiking, biking and just about anything outdoors. if your dogs like to walk or hike, have the leashes ready ;-)
We can provide excellent personal and professional references .
We look forward to speaking with you and wishing you safe and fun travels

Mark and Patricia took great care of our dog and our home. They were reliable and very responsive. Our dog is a rescue and typically has difficulty trusting visitors in our home, but he seemed to take to Mark and Patricia from the start. They were great at sending us photos of our dog and keeping us updated about the house. Our home was sparkling clean when we returned from our trip. Would 100% recommend them for a house sit.
KATHLEEN ( Massachusetts, Jan 2019 - 1 week 6 days)
These were really great housesitters. I came home to happy animals and a clean house. They were very communicative and kept me updated with pics and texts letting me know how things were going. I even had a leak in the basement after heavy rain and they cleaned up the mess for me! I couldn't have been happier.
AZURE ( North Carolina, Dec 2018 - 2 weeks 1 day)
Everything was perfect when Patricia & Mark came to look after my home and my precious boy Kia who is a bit elderly now and needs a bit of extra understanding. We stayed in touch while I was gone which I appreciated very much. Everything was looked after very well and the room was even prepared for my next guests. They're a terrific couple to boot and would love to have them stay again.
JULIA ( Florida, Oct 2018 - 5 days)
Mark and Patricia were amazing! They took great care of our 2 (high maintenance) cats, 5 chickens, and house. We came home to happy and healthy animals, and a sparkling clean house. They even took care of a few minor repairs that came up. Mark and Patricia were very responsive throughout the process and I couldn't have asked for better house sitters.
KATE ( Oregon, Jun 2018 - 3 weeks)
No rating Mark and Patricia did a great job taking care of our house, our two dogs, and one cat. We got plenty of pictures and updates during our two weeks away. No issues came up during our time away or upon our arrival. They worked with our scheduled for arrival and departure. And a number of items (dog bedding, towels, etc.) were all cleaned before we got back. We highly recommend Mark & Patricia.
JARED ( Washington, Jun 2018 - 2 weeks)
No rating Mark Brown and his wife Patricia took wonderful care of our house and pets. They sent us continual texts and photos of themselves with our two dogs, who looked exceedingly happy with their temporary caretakers. They deftly dealt with a broken tree limb from a windstorm, a cut on our dog's leg which required several stitches, and even a septic backup. And if that's not all, a chicken dinner was waiting for us when we arrived home. They left the house in better shape than when they arrived. ... MORE

No rating We highly recommend Patricia and Mark. They were a delight and the consummate house sitters! Very professional. Very personable. Great communication! I got a sweet text message and picture from our dog Lexxi every day! They took extraordinary care with Lexxi's sore foot and made sure the garden irrigation timers were working without leaks. We were on a road trip for 10 days. The garden was flourishing and the house was immaculate when we returned.
BETH ( Utah, May 2018 - 1 week 4 days)
No rating Mark & Patricia were wonderful sitters. They were very patient and supportive of my "one person dog". She even came out from under the bed to sit with them on their first day! The pictures and narration while I was away was much appreciated and the extra "spit and polish" was a joy to see when I returned!

Garden Maintenance

Green garden!

Make sure the garden & the potted plants are thriving when you return home. A house sitter will do this for you.
