I am a 67 years old single woman,university educated, and recently retired after 28 years as a real-estate agent for a leading company.
For the past two and a half years I’ve been caring for my elderly mother, but now her property is to be sold. I am looking for housesitting opportunities from early January until May when I intend to purchase again.
I live a very quiet life - my interests are books, films, art and music. Also I like to walk, exploring different parts of the countryside.
My surroundings are important to me. In addition to my real estate work I’ve undertaken interior design projects and art consultancy and my intention is to always leave my house-sit exactly as I found it!
In the past I’ve enjoyed a number of lovely house-minding opportunities for friends and friends-of-friends and cared for cats, dogs and chickens (even a few sheep!)
In terms of location I would be most interested in positions in Canterbury or Otago but am open to anywhere in the South Island.
