Professional Pet & House Sitter/Handyman

55, Semi Retired

I travel the country Full Time caring for pets and homes, writing stories from the road and performing handyman work. I've been a Full Time Professional Pet sitter since 2016. My clients stretch from the Florida Keys to Massachusetts, California to New York, Arizona to Washington State and many places in between.

Prior to 2016, I owned a Real Estate Brokerage & Property Management Company in New York and Connecticut as well as Construction Company and a small Manufacturing Company.

Just since 2016, I've Pet and House Sat in multiple states, performed numerous handyman tasks from Bathroom Renovations, to Flooring and even an amazing Outdoor Shower for a Treehouse Masters Treehouse. I also completed a full restoration of a Log Home in New York that included custom built furniture, electrical, plumbing and landscaping, operated heavy equipment and performed finish carpentry onsite

I typically prefer assignment that are a month or longer, but I am available for any length and in any location, under the right circumstances. While I do travel the country in a custom van I built myself, I've had clients fly me out or put me on a train for shorter term assignments. Please message me with any questions or to obtain additional references as many of my assignments are through word of mouth or various other sites.

Thank you for stopping by.

No rating Larry housesat for us for two months and took care of our very pesky cat. He did a fantastic job and due to his property management experience had no problem doing things like replacing smoke alarms and other minor fixes. We have a 3-family house and he was very helpful to our tenants, especially shoveling snow this winter. And the big surprise for me was that when I returned the house was spotless. He is great with animals and is a very nice man, kind and wholesome. I highly recommend him.
