More Information

Hi there, my name is John.
I am a mature single male, honest, responsible, reliable, non-smoker – reasonably fit & able. I am clean & tidy.

Before my recent retirement I was a Resident Unit Manager for 9+ years looking after 5 Gated Security Townhouse Complexes with a total of 54 townhouses and 4 pools.
About half of the townhouses were permanent rentals under my management on behalf of the owner/investors.
My role entailed tenant selection, rent collection and periodic unit inspections, so cleanliness is not a new concept to me.
I was also responsible for arranging any unit maintenance and repairs as required.
As a rent collector I was required legally to have a bank Trust Account. My Restricted Letting Agents licence (issued by the Office of Fair Trading - Qld) was conditional on a satisfactory annual mandatory police check, as well as financial auditing 3 times a year. Management of the complexes on behalf of the 5 Bodies Corporate covered all security aspects, pool care (4 pools), mowing & co-ordinating contractors for any repair & maintenance programs as required.
My past roles have also included being General Manager/Manager for accommodation hotel companies such as Greetings Hotels and Quality Pacific Hotels in areas such as Sydney, Melbourne, Albury, Brisbane & Kalgoorlie. I also have held resource management roles for a large telecoms company.

I now have a motorhome and plan to travel wherever the mood takes me – initially through Queensland at this stage.

Prior to the above role I lived on 10 acres just west of Brisbane with 3 horses, dogs & a cat.
Before that I lived on 100 acres just out of Grafton (NSW) with cattle (20+ cows & a bull) 4 horses, a dog and a cat.

I would look after and maintain your home and your pets as if they were my own.
I haven’t been able to keep any animals over the last 9 years (since I left Bris) so am keen to get in touch with them again.
Therefore looking after and caring for residential properties, or rural properties & farm animals, are certainly within my skill sets.
For what it is worth I am Sydney born & bred and a NSW Blues supporter.

I have completed a 1 month housesit assignment in the Mackay area looking after a 150 ac farm with 60 head of stock.
I have also completed a 4 week house and pet sit just north of Port Douglas with 2 dogs and I am currently about to complete a 3 month (Mar-May 19) house sit with 1 dog at Malanda in Nth Qld.
