I'm Sharon Luxford, a corporate professional who is also a house, pet and pool sitter...yes its thing.
I learnt from a 'pool man' during a recent house sit in Paddington that having someone to monitor the level of your pool while you're away can save your filter from blowing up if it gets to low or protect your beautiful landscaping, if it overflows.
I have house, dog and cat sat for friends and friends of friends over many years and am now a professional looking for house sits in beautiful places in Sydney.
For me, house sitting is a two way relationship...well three or four when you include the pets ;-)
I believe it's important that everyone meets and establishes a relationship before the house sit commences. There needs to be a match...for everyone. The house owner, the house sitter and your furry, finned or feathered babies.
I also have travelled extensively using Airbnb and often stayed in Host's homes while they were away.
I work in the Sydney CBD as a Business Change Manager. I also have my own LinkedIn Profile Writing, Keynote Speaking and Executive Coaching business, called 'Frock Up & Rock Up'.
I love to house and pet sit in light, clean and open spaces with 'views that move'. I am a non-smoker and have my own car. Wi-fi essential, Netflix, Air con, off street or under cover parking (where possible) also always welcome ;-)
In my free time, I like to spend time at the Art Gallery, on and around the harbour foreshore and beaches, at the cinema with Dendy Opera Quays a favourite, op shopping and enjoy cafes in new and interesting locations.
I would love to be of service to you and your friends or family, if you are planning any travel later in 2018 and into 2019 and would like your home and/or pets lovingly cared for while you are away.
Looking forward to meeting you and your beloved pets.
