Hello, my name is Rodger.
I'm looking for the opportunity to provide executive long term "house sitting" in the greater Tahoe / Reno area. Ideally, the family would be in need of some or all services, such as; overseeing maintenance (see my qualifications below) , picking up mail, watering plants, along with making sure the home appears occupied. An empty home is a target for break-ins.
I had a buddy in the Tahoe area at one time that replaced windows for a living. He made an arrangement with an owner that wildlife bears wouldn't break in again, so the damage from the first time could get repaired and stay repaired!
Some families are in need of homes to be maintained while their elderly parent moves to assisted living for a period of time or while they take extended stays away in other areas. I'm looking to help families who want a reliable, non-drinking, non-smoking, no-partying individual for a minimum of 1 week to months at a time. I have extensive property knowledge, contractor management skills, and background, with reasonable rates.
Below is another Craigslist ad I am running that explains much about my background. I have an over 800 score for my credit, which should give you an indication of my veracity. The successful businesses that I allude to below are rental properties that I own.
Technical/ industrial supervisor or recreation guide (Reno, NV)
education completed: associates
Recently retired and feeling no pain with my current successful businesses. My time is my own, so I may want something part-time and starting after 10 a.m. daily. Just exploring my options and seeing if there is something that might hold my interest, or different, that I might enjoy, maybe as a supervisor in a technical field.
I have an A.S. degree in Electronics. Most of my employment background was in a light industrial setting in Maintenance as an Electronics Technician (18 years) with three pages of machine classes I was sent to during that time. Programming training in Allen Bradley PLC 500 ladder logic was one of them.
I had a stint as a Building Maintenance Mechanic (5 years) working with HVAC, plumbing, electrical, general contracting, security electrical, light industrial vehicles (forklifts and tow motors) and HAZMAT training. I acted as a temporary supervisor a few times. I am a very accomplished forklift operator, am 5 Ton Stake Truck qualified, and have a clear driving record. Very good material fabricator, and I know how to turn a wrench.
I am fascinated by battery technology, old, new, and bleeding edge. I have an interest in meteorology, science, technology, and can speak competently to a myriad of topics.
I have great communication skills and enjoy being a team player, and team builder. A true people person.
I'm definitely tired of being the "Lone Ranger" for solutions. I'm looking forward to being part of a team.
I have years experience as a motorcycle driving instructor.
As far a recreation, I enjoy Off-road 4x4, dual sport motorcycles, mountain style snowmobiles, and jet ski adventuring.
I might like to try my hand at being a guide for the above, and am willing to travel.
An outdoorsy jack-of-all-trades.
I am a veteran.
Feel free to reply by email for now. I look forward to discussing your needs further!
