To Whom It May Concern:
We are a dependable, professional, energetic couple with experience as full time, year round, live-in caretakers managing day-to-day operations of an oceanfront estate. Jodie and I are physically fit, a non-smoking/drinking, non-drug using couple comfortable working as part of a team as well as independently. We have the ability to work and relate to countless personalities and look forward to building new relationships. With a can-do attitude we aspire to continually improve ourselves.
Being raised by old fashioned, principled, Christian parents in rural Vermont and New Hampshire; Jodie and I learned early on the meaning of hard work. From youthful employment to many household and outdoor chores along with studies and sports we were taught that nothing is worth doing unless it is done wholeheartedly.
Through honesty, dedication, common sense and accumulated job and life skills we follow a passion to oversee ones beloved estate, ensuring its upkeep and security in accordance with ownerships guidelines. We provide the owner with supreme confidence while their most treasured assets are in our hands and believe straightforward communication is the key to a successful relationship.
We can provide innumerable services both supervisory as well as hands on to meet all of your needs. Jodie and I will go above and beyond; this is how we were raised and this is the standard to which we measure success.
We would love to speak with you regarding your domestic needs.
Chad and Jodie Downs
