Your peace of mind providers are here!
Retired Finance Mgr.
Retired Retail District Mgr./Sales
We are a retired, trustworthy, professional couple from Las Vegas, NV who would love to carefully watch over your home, pets, garden, plants, pool and mail while you are away!
While working in our careers we each had clearance at McCarron International Airport in Las Vegas. The process of being "badged" for the airport meant we passed an FBI clearance check. In February of 2018 I requested and passed an enhanced security check provided by an independent third party that checked me on the National Police Computer System.
As homeowners we've done all of our own planting & landscaping. We love gardening! Our home had a pool and jacuzzi. I was the "pool boy" for over two decades and have knowledge of pool operations, chemicals and repairs .
We want to provide quality home/pet/garden/pool service so homeowners can travel with peace of mind knowing their home/fur babies are safe and well cared for.
House sitting would allow us to experience different areas much like a local would. We currently don't have any pets because we are traveling. Help us get our "pet fix" by allowing us the privilege of spoiling yours! We will show them the same unconditional love that you do!
We have both domestic and international house/pet sitting experience and are experienced travelers. Here are our most recent reviews from multiple websites (all five stars!):
MARK & ANDREA - PASO ROBLES, CA
SIT DATES: 31 MAR - 13 APR 2022
Mike and Jean returned to our home for a second time and our dog, Gator, remembered them immediately. Gator went on many adventures with them, including several trips to the beach and walks in and around Paso Robles. Mike and Jean were in constant communication with us and sent many pictures of the three of them on the beach. The house was left meticulously clean and Mike even mowed the lawn. It is wonderful and such a relief to know that our most precious boy is being loved and cared for by Mike and Jean. Their affection for Gator is clearly evident and he loves them. In fact, he was in a state of depression for the entire afternoon and evening after they left. Obviously, they are way more fun than we are!

SIT DATES: 28 FEB - 4 MAR 2022
It was wonderful to have Mike and Jean back to care for my critters and my home. My two kitties and my pup were happy to see them again too! I was able to enjoy my quick vacation knowing that everything was taken care of, and my home and pets were well loved. Not only were my animals happy and healthy upon my return, but my home was sparkling. Thank you again! Debbie

SIT DATES: 8 JAN - 16 JAN 2022
This was the second time Michael and Jean took care of our pups and home. They were fantastic! They took great care of our two pups and our home while we were away. They were very communicative about the sit, they came to the house the day before to go over any changes since the last time, and kept in touch with us while we were away if any issues arose. They even cleaned the house before they left. Can't recommend them highly enough!
SUSAN - ORO VALLEY, AZ
SIT DATES: 19 OCT - 04 NOV 2021
Michael and Jean watched over our home and took care of our little dog for two weeks in October/November. What a personable and thoroughly enjoyable couple. Communication was good, the house was immaculate when we arrived home and I think our dog might have been just a little disappointed that his folks had returned home. Leaving your pets entrusted to someone else can cause some anxiety I know, but we could not recommend Michael and Jean any more highly. Strongly recommend them both and hope that they will agree to sit for us again whenever we travel.

KEVIN & WENDY - FLAGSTAFF, AZ
SIT DATES: 23 SEP - 5 OCT 2021
We are very grateful that we found Mike and Jean that they were willing to sit for us. Our pre-sit communication with them was excellent and made us very comfortable with choosing them to look after our boys. We had an opportunity to spend some time with them before departing, and their thorough and caring approach to getting familiar with the boys and the house allowed us to leave confident that we had made the right choice and could enjoy our trip without any concerns. We returned to an immaculate house and two very healthy and happy cats. If they could talk, we are pretty sure that they would have been saying: "It's okay you're back, but what happened to those two nice people who gave us so much love and attention?" Mike and Jean truly did an exceptional job, and we hope to have them back for all of our future sits if they are willing.
DEBBIE - SAN DIEGO (PACIFIC BEACH), CA
SIT DATES: 19 AUG - 23 AUG 2021
Mike and Jean were wonderful caregivers for our kitties, our pup and our home. I could tell from the minute we began communicating that they love being pet/housesitters and do not take the responsibility lightly. They always responded quickly to any text that I sent, both prior to the sit and during. I was able to enjoy my getaway without any anxiety thanks to the both of them. I came home to happy, well taken care of animals and a spotless home. Mike and Jean are lovely. I would not hesitate calling on them again.
RICHARD - SCOTTSDALE, AZ
SIT DATES: 26 JUL - 05 AUG 2021
Mike and Jean were great housesitters! They sat for us almost two weeks and took great care of our two pups. We would love to have them sit for us again.
KRIS - MADISON, WI
SIT DATES: 26 APR - 09 MAY 2021
Michael and Jean were amazing! They went above and beyond our expectations in every category! They were very flexible with meeting us before the sit and took great care of the house and our 2 fur babies. Would highly recommend and would love to have them back!
MARK AND ANDREA - PASO ROBLES, CA
SIT DATES: 24 APR - 09 MAY 2021
Gator loved Mike and Jean and the three of them went on many adventures to our nearby beaches and frequented some of the restaurants, wineries and breweries that Paso Robles is known for. Our only complaint was that Gator didn't seem to be that happy to see us after two weeks because he just loved Mike and Jean. Our house was left meticulously clean and Mike repaired a broken sprinkler and mowed the lawn without being asked! They went way beyond being great house sitters and we'd love to have them back in the near future. They are definitely a 5++++ star couple!
DOROTHY - SAN DIEGO (NORTH PARK), CA
SIT DATES: 18 MAR - 28 MAR 2021
We were beyond pleased with Mike and Jean's attention to our pooches that they affectionately referred to as "the kids" and the care of our home. I don't know how Jean (and Mike?) managed to buff out the scratches on our range that happened when someone carelessly removed the very heavy grates. We have tried but failed. Never did we have a wasp/bee invasion of our yard waste bin but that happened on their watch. Problem solved with sealing the bin shut and a bug zapper. Never did we encounter a leaking garbage disposal but that also happened. The house was spotless. Bobby and Clara weren't all that thrilled when we returned. That says something. Without hesitation we highly recommend Mike and Jean. They are exceptional and attentive. We really appreciate all that they did.
MIKE - SAN DIEGO (MISSION HILLS), CA
SIT DATES: 8 SEP - 6 OCT 2020
I was grateful to have Michael and Jean watching my cat and house the past four weeks while I was overseas. Everything went off without a hitch. They are extremely reliable and terrific communicators. After meeting them, I knew my home and pet were in great hands. I appreciated them keeping me up to date on my mail. They also really bonded with my cat, which I know she enjoyed. I would welcome them back without hesitation. Top marks!
KIMBERLY - LAKE HAVASU, AZ
SIT DATES: 26 AUG - 3 SEP 2020
Michael and Jean are lovely people!! They took excellent care of our older dog (with numerous medications) and our very vocal, demanding cat! We had some change up's in dates and some technical difficulties with the trusted house sitters site and they were beyond patient! They were very easy to communicate with and gave us updates. Our home was clean and well cared for. We can't say enough! Count yourself fortunate if you're able to land then as sitters!!
CALLY - SAN DIEGO (POINT LOMA), CA
SIT DATES: 9-12 JUL 2020
I highly recommend Michael and Jean for your pet sitting needs, 5 stars across the board!
SHANA - SEATTLE, WA
SIT DATES: 23 DEC 2019 - 4 JAN 2020
Wow, I don't even know where to begin! Michael and Jean sat for out two kitties, Pip and Hoot, for 2+ weeks over the holidays. Pip has health issues and requires supplements, specialized diet, and demands attention on her terms. Hoot requires full-time loves, cuddles and TREATS to survive. Michael and Jean maintained amazing communication throughout via pictures and text updates. When we returned, the house was spotless and the cats WELL cared for. We cannot recommend Jean and Michael enough and hope they will consider returning to Seattle to stay with our cats in the future!
CASEY - SURPRISE, AZ
SIT DATES: 22 NOV - 3 DEC 2019
Mike and Jean are so great! We felt so comfortable leaving our fur baby with them. We were able to enjoy our trip and our Great Dane loved his new friends. We got fun pictures throughout our trip of Blu playing with them in the backyard or on walks. We highly recommend them! Just please don't steal them when we are going to vacation because we 100% will use them again!
JOHN - MEDELLIN (LAURELES), COLOMBIA
SIT DATES: 18-27 JULY 2019
Repeat A-1 Performance!
It is the second time that Mike and Jean came to take care of our pups! That means we were very happy with them the first time and enjoy having them as dear friends now. When they arrived the dogs recognized them immediately. We had great communication the whole time we were gone, we found the house super clean and pups very well cared for and spoiled with love! Mike and Jean are the best. I think our animals were happier with them then with us! Thanks again Mike and Jean!!
CYNDE - RICHFIELD, WI
SIT DATES: 15-30 JUNE 2019
This was our first venture with trustedhousesitters.com and we couldn't be more pleased with the experience. Mike & Jean were utterly a joy to have house and dog sit for us. The provided updates, asked questions as needed (easy to answer) and checked in regularly with us. Our dog Raven was happy, healthy and so content to have Mike & Jean watch over her! They left our home clean, washed the linens and even left us a little treat to welcome us home from our long trip. They were exceptional, and I would highly recommend them for any house sit. Thank you Mike & Jean!
MARGARET - DEL MAR, CA
SIT DATES: 28 APR - 1 MAY 2019
Michael and Jean came early to meet us and went over all the details of the house. They stayed later to take care of the pups while we drove home. The house was immaculate and sheets washed/dried and put back on the bed. They took Honey and Yogi to breakfast with them, walks and lots of hugs and pets. We received a text each day with pics of the dogs. Highly recommended and would love to have them back.
AHNA - SUN PRAIRIE, WI
SIT DATES: 13-23 MARCH 2019
Michael and Jean were nothing short of amazing! They are organized, self-sufficient, super clean and my cats were happy when I got back. Importantly they went above and beyond to help me out and even swept and cleaned my garage and laundry area. I couldn't ask for better people and house sitters. I would have them both back in a heartbeat!
EVA - SEBASTOPOL, CA
SIT DATES: 3-21 FEB 2019 - Repeat sit (see 24 AUG - 15 SEP 2018)
No formal review. Here is part of our email communication in Dec 2018 when we agreed to the sit:
Michael and Jean - We are overjoyed that you two will come out here again to sit with Daisy. We're looking forward to having you at our home again. Happy holidays to you both... you are the best sitters we've ever had! Eva and John
DAWNN - SAN TAN VALLEY, AZ
SIT DATES: 27-31 JAN 2019
Mike and Jean were great sitters. They arrived early and were able to spend a little time with Smokey and Jaz before we left. That made for a smooth transition. Our home was neat and clean when came back. Communication was excellent before, during and after the trip. Thanks again!!!
JOHN - BOQUETE, PANAMA
SIT DATES: 28 SEP - 22 OCT 2018
If you are looking for great house sitters you just found them! Michael and Jean are AWESOME! They are such a responsible, warm and caring couple who looked after our pets with obvious affection and conscientiousness. It was obvious that animal routines had been followed carefully but it was also plain to see that all of them had been given much additional love and time. On our return, we found the house immaculate and our fur kids well taken care of. Totally recommend them for any house/pet sit!
EVA - SEBASTOPOL, CA
SIT DATES: 24 AUG - 15 SEP 2018
Michael and Jean were our house sitters and dog sitter for a three week period this summer. They were very conscientious and outstanding sitters. My pet was well cared for and my home was so clean I did not have to do any housework for days upon my return. Their chores included pool and extensive gardening maintenance. Plus they are just very nice people! They did more than asked of them and we highly recommend them for future house sitting and pet sitting. Eva and John.
APRIL - SAN DIEGO, CA (MISSION BAY)
SIT DATES: 25-29 JULY 2018
My experience with Michael and Jean was AMAZING. My plans had to change last minute and Michael and Jean just went with it and went out of their way to help me out. They clearly love animals and have a ton of experience caring for them. They sent me regular updates and put my nervous dog at ease. Upon my return my apartment was truly better than I left it. It was a dream to come back to a perfectly clean home and a happy dog. I cannot recommend these two enough. They were truly a blessing for me and my dog.
CHRISTINE -DENVER, CO
SIT DATES: 21 MAY - 7 JUN 2018
Michael and Jean took wonderful care of my cat and my home. They went above and beyond in the care of my yard. I came back to a spotless home and well trimmed yard and a lovely gift basket. Very thoughtful! I know they took good care of my cat as he was not upset with me for leaving him. I would love to have an exchange with Michael and Jean again in the future and give them the highest recommendation.
DONNA - KEMAH, TX
SIT DATES: 5 MAR - 3 APR 2018
Mike and Jean did an astounding job caring for my pets and my home. They sent photos of the puppies from time to time, and we came home to three healthy and happy dogs. My home looked exactly as it did when I left it a month ago. I hit the jackpot when I found Mike and Jean!!!!!
