Bill watched my cat, Sharky, and home for 3 weeks. He was very communicative and proactive. There was issues with the dishwasher and leak in the bathroom, he let me know about immediately and took care of. He sent many photos of Sharky and bought toys to play with her. Bill left the house clean. He also went above and beyond to pick/drop me off at the airport. I come home not feeling well. Before he left, Bill made sure I had vitamins and food in the fridge. I am very grateful for his help and ... MORE

William by far exceeded my expectations for communication, organization and care of my home. Responding to my listing he provided scale and scope of previous sits, reviews and personal information. When requested he provided a list of references. Almost to good to be true. Prior to arrival he provided a checklist of duties and responsibilities for our further discussion and understanding. On arrival he was personable, organized and on task. While I was gone he communicated to me on a ... MORE

Will Barrett took care of our house and our cat, Olivia, for almost two months. Olivia is a timid cat, but it took little time before she was playing with Will and sleeping on his bed. He was great at sending me videos of her playing or basking in the sun. The house was well taken care of and very clean, the garden was blooming and the cat was happy when we arrived home. On top of that, Will took us to the airport at 5:00 am and picked us up at 2:00 am! Talk about going above and beyond. ... MORE

William just completed a one-month house-sitting for me. I have an old house with numerous "quirks," and he took great care to listen to and address the concerns I had. He was extremely conscientious in all aspects and contacted me expediently when a couple of issues arose. I arrived home to find the garden and yard meticulously cared for (it had never looked better during the month of February!), and the house was super-clean - including the old wood floors, which just gleamed! I would ... MORE

William was house/petsitting for two months in my home while I was out of the country. I have two elderly dachshunds and they were both well cared for and happy when I returned home. My home was cleaner when I got back than when I left, and William had made some thoughtful efforts to meet my little friends' special needs. He also texted photos and updates regularly. All in all a positive experience and I would welcome him back if the need were to arise.
