About Doolittle's Housesitting.
"Your Casa Concierge." - DH
Our team of reliable home inspectors is fully vetted, bonded and insured.
Doolittle’s Housesitting does not provide tenants for free rent in exchange for house care.
We do care for your home while you are away, via inspection checks, to ensure your house is safe and operating properly.
We will gladly arrive when needed and stay until the job is complete
I called Tori at Doolittle's to help oversee an onslaught of contractors, scheduled for 3 weeks of work in our rental property. Our tenant is a busy executive and did not want repairmen entering and exiting the home with his 2 dogs inside. Tori was a lifesaver and scheduled one of her caretakers to greet various contractors, while remaining in the home until the repair work was done and ensuring the dogs safety as servicemen came in and out daily. I don't know what I would have done without Tori and Marilyn!
Our family has been involved with Tori Levitt for over 5 years. We are happy to respond that Tori is the most loving, personality invested and caring business owner we have ever experienced. We highly recommend her to you.
We are always at ease knowing that Tori is in charge of our every need.
I have nothing but wonderful things to say about our experience with your company. You made last-minute scheduling easy and I felt so comfortable. I will not hesitate to use your service again. Thank you for everything!
Frequently Asked Questions
I already have a pest control company to monitor infestation and treat if needed. Do I need you to check for outdoor pest or bird problems?
Based on your existing contracts, whether weekly, bi-monthly or monthly, we’re happy to be your second set of eyes. At a minimum, we will sweep up any dead bugs inside your home!
Remember, we are keeping an eye on the interior of your home as well!
I already have a landscaper & pool company to monitor my front and backyard. What more do you offer for exterior protection?
We work in concert with your current service providers. Most landscapers will not remove solicitation materials from the front door or replace burned out light bulbs (unless you build that into your contract; recommended). Arizona is famous for monsoons which can cause unforeseen damage from falling debris. We recommend “storm checks”, in addition to regular visits, to ensure that any damage is quickly assessed and addressed.
I already have a home security system. Why hire you?
Despite sophisticated monitoring systems, nature can interfere and most systems can’t flush toilets or run the showers! If not used for a lengthy period of time, traps can become dry and sewer odors will enter your home. Simply running faucets and taps will refill the trap and eliminate the odor. We will also check for any plumbing leaks and alert you immediately to avoid costly repairs and excess water usage later.
My home system allows remote access to lock/unlock my doors when contractors or deliveries are scheduled. Why pay you to let them in?
If you completely trust the individual or company you’ve hired, then you don’t need us to coordinate or supervise those special arrangements. However, all of our house tenders are vetted, insured and bonded, providing you with peace of mind that the job gets done properly and securely.
My friends and neighbors are able to check on my house when I’m away. What more do I need?
If your absence is for a short period, your friends and neighbors are great solutions for home care! In the event they will be out of town when you are, we’re happy to help even if only for a few weeks. We do not require long-term contracts.
How do you "vet" your home inspectors?
We do not subscribe to public platforms such as Craigslist or Care.com. Our inspectors are based on selective referral and subject to careful screening, including background and criminal checks, along with long-term employment history and proven reliability.
