Elmer was very good. He was prompt and got the job done quickly. He put together our new rowing machine and a spin cycle. He was also able to do a few more jobs around the house which was great.
Kyle has been taking care of my two dogs when I travel or just have long days at the office. He is extremely reliable, can be trusted to be at your house by himself, and great with my dogs. He always writes me detailed updates after his visits with pictures. I highly recommend him!
Blane was referred by a friend to help with purging and redefining our space after two rooms were free in my house. Blane truly has both vision and is also hands on. We emptied shelves, moved tables, got rid of a rug to open up the space. In three visits Blane found innovative ways of arranging furniture and artwork. We found a desk in one room that was not being used and moved it up to my newly created office. We also emptied a shelf to put in a newly created tv room. Blane is very aware of feng shui so that in my office he suggested I find a mirror so that although my back is facing the door when sitting at my desk, it is all cool now. In the first floor that was cluttered we cleared a cabinet filled with mail and replaced it with a glass bowl and later put up curtains. A very visually unaware friend noticed noticed the change as well as the curtains. On our most recent meeting we shopped for pillows and curtains and came back to the house to hang the curtains up. Blane finds innovative and aesthetic ways of arranging a room and clearing space. He also makes suggestions so that I went to the Container Store on my own and cleaned my dresser tops and rearranged my jewelry in boxes and containers so that now I know what I have. Blane is friendly and easy to work with, teaching you "how to fish" so that going forward I can utilize some of his vision and expertise on my own. I will call him back to work on my closets, but am going to clear some more space before then. Blane is truly a find. I am so happy that he came into my life.
Michelle is the definition of house cleaner. She cleaned every inch of the house. I truly appreciate her service and grateful to have found her. She is a wonderful friendly person as well. I highly recommend her if u want ur house truly cleaned.
Donna and her team provided superlative care of my dog and fish (and house for that matter) while my family and I were traveling out of the country. I will recommend Prima Donna Pet Services to others and I will most certainly use them again.
Nica did a great job. She left my house clean and with good smell. She’s responsible and a reliable person.
The Perfect Wife has been a lifesaver for me. I have a townhouse property in Manhattan and I needed someone to babysit it, which involved opening the door for realtors, gardeners, plumbers, as well as supervising the work and organizing the house. I needed someone to be me and be there with integrity and professionalism. The Perfect Wife has been reliable and efficient. They are always available and have the best solution for my needs. María and Adrian are great workers I trust them. They have the keys to my place and I am so happy with their work. They really back me up in Manhattan. I recommend their services and most of all I recommend them.
I have been working with these girls for about 2 years now and they have always done an amazing job. I heard about them through my neighbor, who they are currently still cleaning for. They clean my whole house which is a 4 bedroom 2.5 bathroom home. It is always left looking spotless and like new. The reason I have stuck with them for so long is because of the pricing, is very reasonable for the amazing service they provide. We have an agreement where they dust, clean, and mop/vacuum the whole house, including changing the linens with clean sheets and pillow cases that I leave out for them. I granted them full access to my home, because I do have two children and the weekends are the best time to get the kids out of the house and go to a park so they can clean in peace. They are very trust worthy and have made it very easy for me to keep them as housekeepers. I never had a problem calling them if I needed a last minute cleaning because they are very flexible and make it work. I currently provide the cleaning supplies, but we have had situations where I told her in advance I was low on a product she would bring it along with the receipt and I would reimburse her. If you are looking for an amazing cleaning job I definitely recommend these two girls. It is good to see them branching out and taking on more clients. Great Job Ladies!
Laura will be house/pet sitting for me next week. She came here to meet my pets and learn about the house. She was extremely friendly, professional and smart. She is also quick to respond to communications. She put our minds at ease because it is clear that she loves animals! We know our dogs and cats will be in great hands with Laura!
Bryanna's the best! I love how caring Bryanna is with my dog. It's a great feeling knowing my dog has free roam of her whole house and backyard and has her dog to play with as well. Whenever I drop my dog off at her house I get pictures of how my dog is doing too!
Stacey came to my home to watch my little zoo. I have 4 dogs, 2 cats, 2 birds & a hamster while I was on vacation for 2 weeks. She was phenomenal with all of my babies. Two of my dogs are elderly & has to take medication every day, one takes it twice a day. She had no problems administering the medications. She took the time to send me pictures & messages daily to keep me informed on how they were doing & to put me at ease. She had no problems walking my great Dane, Pitbull, Yorkie & Shih Tzu. I didn't want to leave the animals alone, so I asked if she would house sit for me & stay at my home for the 2 weeks I was gone. She had no problem staying in my home & sharing a bed with all the dogs. Even 1 of my cats followed her everywhere & slept with her She took in my mail, watered my plants & kept my house neat & tidy, even vacuuming. Stacey truly loves animals, all animals & loves taking care of them & walking them. I'm having surgery soon & I am so happy & blessed to have found Stacey. I know that she will take good care of my zoo when I'm in the hospital, but I feel lucky that she will walk my dogs when I come home to recuperate. Which really puts me at ease knowing someone I trust will be helping me. It takes a huge weight off my shoulders. I just can't say enough wonderful things about her. If I were you in wouldn't even consider hiring anyone else. She is not expensive & she charges what I feel is a fair amount. Boarding animals is too expensive for me. So I'm glad she prices fair. She also give discounts if you have more than 1 dog to walk or more than 1 pet to care for.
Jeannie worked for me for three years before we relocated. She always made herself available to watch my children, and if we were out of town, dog/house sit for us. Her education background makes sense for how well she works with children! I never had any issues communicating with Jeannie, her professional manner and organization made me feel as ease every time she worked with us. Coming home to a clean house was always an added bonus. Overall, Jeannie is a true gem and I am so thankful our family got the chance to know her!
I believe cats are are always way more comfortable at home. There is the occasional kitty that is used to being out and about. i even recently saw a young man walking his cat!! (so awesome) But for the most part our felines feel better hanging out on the window sill and doing some good old people watching. Dogs have the advantage of going to the dog park or doggie day care everyday or a few times a week and if anything are used to being away from home, cats not so much. they are fragile, i recently moved to the area and it took my poor cat almost 2 weeks to adjust, poor thing hardly ate and would not leave the spot he managed to wedge himself into behind the couch! Lets not mess up their routines. Lets allow them to keep on people watching from their favorite perch
I do my best to make sure the customer is satisfied , I follow directions very well.

I look at dog walking as an exercise and bonding time with your beloved Animal. It's important for me to do a good job by the dog and his family. I also love to interact with your dog to let him know I'm not just a walker but his friend.I treat your dog as if it were my own.
