My focus and specialties are in-home pet care and house, estate or apartment caretaking. I am available and happy to help keep cherished pets happy and healthy and ensure the safety and upkeep of your home or estate while you are on vacation or business trips. More about me at www (dot) worldclasshousesitting (dot) com.

A lifelong animal lover, I have had the joy and privilege of taking care of many beloved pets in their homes over the years - my own dog, cats and the occasional hamster included.

At home in the Bay Area, as well as during my travels abroad, I have acted as caretaker or trusted guest of many a home since 1990, from tiny Parisian studios to large, upscale San Francisco houses. I have found I greatly enjoy the combination of the freedom of staying in different settings and meeting new people, along with the responsibility of providing fastidious home/property caretaking and loving pet sitting services. In this way, I have developed many new friendships and trusting clients, furry or otherwise!

I am in excellent health, don't smoke, drink or use drugs of any kind, and do not have pets or children of my own.The latter gives me the freedom of going where I am needed, when available, and to travel light. I only take care of nonsmoking homes. I speak French (have lived in France), some Spanish and basic Italian.

Friends, colleagues and pet and house sitting clients have described me as compassionate, friendly, trustworthy, respectful, fastidious, conscientious, reliable, organized and responsible. Here is what some of my clients have to say:

"Having Sue as a house-sitter was a wonderful experience! From the moment I met her I knew my apartment would be in good hands. She is a very warm, friendly and considerate person. She took great care of my plants, collected all my mail and kept me updated on everything while I was away. I came back to an apartment that looked even tidier than when I'd left it, with nothing to worry about except unpacking my suitcase. I wouldn't hesitate to have Sue at my place again. Highly recommend!" -- Elisabeth L., Paris, France

"I'm always nervous about leaving my pets with a new person. It can be hard to find a person who is great with both dogs and cats, and who pays attention to all of the details it takes to keep the pets safe and happy. Sue exceeded my expectations. When I returned from my time away, both pets were relaxed and content. I trust her absolutely with my 'babies' and with my home." -- Barbara S., Berkeley, CA

"Sue took wonderful care of my cat, Oscar, while I was out of town for two weeks. The house was kept well, too, and she gathered my mail. So when I arrived home, the cat was happy and healthy, and the house was tidy. It's nice to know that your pet is in good care while you're away." -- Jennifer C., San Francisco, CA

"When I had to leave on short notice for a week I was grateful that Sue was available to stay in my home and look after my dog while I was away. She went above and beyond what was expected and my dog just adored her, they quickly became great buddies. Sue is truly a lover of all animals, and one can see they feel the same way about her. Coming from a slightly over-protective single mom of a Rottweiler, I have to say Sue would be the first person I would contact the next time I need a responsible, trustworthy, and caring person to stay in my home and take care my dog." -- Jo-el H., San Francisco, CA

I look forward to hearing from you and providing top notch pet or house sitting services to individuals or families in the Bay Area!
