I may be inclined to do a free assignment: It depends on what other concessions you have to offer, such as having enough food to consume in the house for the entire duration of the assignment, and auxiliary use of a car as well.

May I please introduce myself? I am a local Los Angeles-based traveling single male pet/house-sitter. I am available all and any dates, I do have a reliable car, and I possess an excellent sense of navigation. I do not mind traveling a bit beyond L.A., or even across the country, as I have traveled quite a bit in the past year for various other house-sitting assignments. I am also a skilled and knowledgeable life-time classic car enthusiast and mechanic, as well as an honorably-discharged U.S. Army Veteran. I am able to provide a wealth of credible general character references, as well as actual house/petsitting-specific references, upon request, relating to assignments done in the past 12 months. I have never been arrested, I have no criminal record, I do not drink, I do not smoke, and I have never had a drug or alcohol problem, and all this can be reasonably-established through a background check of me. I also have a current, valid Police Clearance Letter in-hand, generically-known in other forums as a "police check", from the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, to prove my clean record. I am who I say I am, and I am a trustworthy person of reasonable and sound mind. I anticipate your reception.

No rating Marcus recently house-sat for my wife and myself for 3 full weeks as we traveled in a fairly remote region on the other side of the world. He looked after both the house and our four spoiled and picky cats, and this included administering medication to one of them for a condition diagnosed just prior to our departure. Well, in short we returned from our trip to four happy, healthy, obviously well cared-for cats and to a pristine house in better condition than we left it. Even in the case of an ... MORE

No rating Marcus has just recently (November 2019) looked after my house and my 2 cats (and my hibernating lizard, garden and plants) for 10 days whist we were away in Europe. It was a first time for us having a house sitter and obviously we were really apprehensive. He has done a brilliant job for us; and my cats were so well looked after and the house - honestly - was much much tidier and cleaner than when we left it. He communicated with us frequently and has always been super responsive. We will ... MORE
KAMILA ( California, Nov 2019)
No rating Marcus house sat and cared for our two cats for 9 days. He was very accommodating and offered to get the keys the day before we left. He communicated regularly with photos, left our home clean and orderly, and kept our kitties well fed and happy. He is a trustworthy, reliable, and conscientious person. We completely recommend Marcus as a house/pet sitter and look forward to having him back in the future.
LINDSEY AND MAGALI ( California, Dec 2018 - 1 week 2 days)
No rating Marcus has proven to be reliable and dependable on both housesitting assignments he has completed for me. He is honest and personable and took care of 2 cats (one of which required a daily asthma inhaler) and 1 senior dog (who had special feeding instructions). I can wholeheartedly recommend him and look forward to the next assignment!
SHAUNNA (Three Points California, Oct 2018 - 2 days)
No rating Marcus house sat for us back in the summer of 2016 and just recently completed another house sitting assignment for us this year, July 2018. He did a great job taking care of our 4 cats and aquarium as well as watering and caring for our extensive gardens, bird feeders, etcetera. In addition to the regular things one would expect of a house sitter, Marcus is very good about vacuuming and keeping the inside of a house nice too. We have found him to be very responsible. We wouldn't hesitate to ... MORE
