Many of these referrals were written before I re-married, so I am referred to as Angie McCraner. I will be house sitting as a single.

Although several of these references are from my cleaning clientele, I am offering them now, to people who are looking into my qualifications as a house sitter / pet sitter. I still offer cleaning services in conjunction with house and pet sitting, for additional fees

I am very good with animals. Many of my clients have them and can attest to how the animals take to me, easily and sometimes surprisingly.


There is NO fee for house sitting

Pet Sitting Rates

My pet sitting rates BEGIN at:

$5.00/day for each cat / rodent / bird

$10.00/day for each dog

Pet sitting rates go up, per animal, depending on any instances of needing special care, such as, administration of medications.

Reference for Angie Schulyer.
Dear Sir or Madam,
My family had the pleasure of hiring Angie for an extended vacation. We needed someone to house and pet sit while we were away. We have 2 finicky dogs, 1 rabbit, fish and a diabetic cat. Not only did Angie bond immediately with our fussy Schnauzers she was also able to administer medicine to our cat. Rabbits can be complicated themselves (and extremely messy!). She handled all of our animals with professionalism and love! With lots of love being the most important to us.
Angie kept our house and yard clean as well. I would highly recommend Angie for any house or pet sitting opportunity you may have.
Feel free to contact us at: 872-202-8770
Thank you!

I am happy to give my stamp of approval to Angie Schuyler as a confident pet sitter ! I have two schnauzers that are very hyper when it comes to visitors ! One is overly friendly and the other quite antisocial ! I was leaving for two weeks and had been inquiring about house pet sitters when a friend told me about Angie and her special way with animals . Angie came a couple of days before my departure so she could follow me with their schedules and get to know the dogs . Well let me tell you my utter surprise when the anti social dog jumped up and sat beside Angie! The hyper one of course didn't change, but as soon as Angie worked her "magic" on him he settled down quite well!! She was a God send and did a great job for me as I knew I could leave knowing my babies would be well cared for If you need further information Angie has my permission to give you my email address so you could contact me.

From Raquel Tabet in Lansing, Michigan
Services performed from April thru June of 2016.
Angie was the perfect dog sitter for Pirate. As an anxious dog, her calmness put him at easy and her patience made him feel comfortable and happy. Angie is very observant and got into Pirate's schedule and habits right away. It did not take long for Pirate to start showing his affection for her, which is not common with my dog. Angie is a true animal lover, attentive, intelligent and responsible. We miss her.

From Janelle Barrett,~ Kalamazoo MI
Services performed in February 2016
Angie has a way about her that reminds me of Snow White communicating with animals. I have hired Angie to house/pet sit many times. She brings with her a sense of joy and peace that the animals flock to. It is like they bask in her energy.
I have known Angie for many years and consider her my best friend. Yet she remains professional in her work, as she does for all clients, and really provides a stable, reliable atmosphere to depart my home- with a calm mind.
When Angie is house-sitting for me, I know my home and pets are in the best care. My house, when I came home, was clear, calm, and clean. It felt soothing and uncluttered. My animals missed her when she left. The calm stayed in my house for nearly a month after.
I highly recommend Angie as house and/or pet sitter. She is a caring, giving, nurturing human, who really just lights up the world...and will light up your home, if you invite her to :)
Infinite love and blessings. Aho. Aine. Peace.

From Tom and Mey, Kalamazoo, Michigan
Services performed from mid December 2015 through Mid January 2016
Angie was invited to stay at our home more than once, and all times were really positive experiences. She once stayed as a housemate, and another time house-sat while both of us were out of the country. Her contributions were generous and completed with great care including * putting personal belongings into storage, * organizing portions of the house, * and pet sitting two rescued pitbulls on fenced property.
A special note from, Mey
While I was abroad, I invited Angie to arrange my sacred objects including stones and crystals. It was during a time of intense personal challenge. I entrusted her completely to treat these precious tools and gifts with the utmost tenderness and intention. I experienced her energy work as a healing presence in my household, supporting my family during a very difficult period.

To Whom it May Concern,
This is a letter of recommendation on behalf of Angie Schuyler. We have known
Angie for several years now through the artistic community in Kalamazoo and
through mutual friends. We have used Angie's services multiple times as a dog and house sitter when we travel. Angie is a trustworthy and conscientious person.
Her caring and compassion for pets is very evident with the care of our “Sugar” pit bull. Sugar is a very needy, whiny 12 year old pit bull. Angie was very accepting and patient with Sugar's need to go outside every night at 3:00am!
Angie's cleaning and organizing skills are very evident when you return home and
your home is in better condition the you left it!
We would highly recommend Angie's service as a house and pet sitter.
Sincerely,
Kim and Irv Phillipson

Entered December 4th, 2015 *this referral is from the first actual people who hired me for house sitting services and a good house cleaning/ blessing.

Recently, we had Angie Schuyler house-sit for us for 2 weeks. She was very easy to work with in getting everything setup. It gave us peace of mind to know that she was staying in the house. And, when we got back, we were pleased at how great the energy felt in the house and how amazingly it sparkled. If you have the chance to pay extra for the cleaning service, just do it! You’ll be very happy that you did. When we arrived home, the house sparkled and felt even better than when we left. It was the best “home-coming” we’ve had from a trip!  If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at (269) 978-8386. I recommend Angie whole-heartedly for her house-sitting and cleaning services!

To whom it may concern:

This is a letter of reference for Angela Schuyler, my tenant of the past 6 years.

During that time, Angela has been an exemplary tenant. Not only did she pay her rent on time each month, but she maintained the property as if it were her own. If she noticed something not working correctly she notified us right away so that we could fix it before the problem became worse. She was quiet, professional, and a joy to work with when something needed fixing at her apartment.

Although I wish that Angela was remaining at our rental unit, I know that wherever she ends up she will become an asset to that establishment.

Sincerely

Wendy Vaughan

landlord.

To whom it may concern,
I feel confident in referring  Angie Schuyler, for house -sitting or other home based services. She has provided high quality cleaning services for CARES offices for over 6 years. Due to the confidential nature of CARES' work, it has always given me peace of mind to have Angie work for us. She is thoughtful and trustworthy, and the quality of her work is exceptional.

Angie is intelligent, responsible, self-motivated, reliable, co-operative and has great attention to detail. She has gone out of her way to be flexible and make our experience efficient and enjoyable. I have no doubt that she would care for your home, as she has cared for our building, and our staff.

I am pleased to speak on her behalf if you have any questions.

Sincerely, David Feaster Executive Director, CARES.

To Whom It May Concern:
I'm pleased to write this letter of reference for Ms. Angie Schuyler. I have known Angie for at least 5 years, during the time she has regularly cleaned my house twice monthly. I respected and appreciated Angie's reliability, her attention to detail, and her commitment to quality. I trusted Angie implicitly to enter when I was not in the home and felt very comfortable giving her a key to use as she came on cleaning days. I also appreciated Angie's commitment to natural and environmental cleaning products, and her philosophy of peaceful presence.
I have two cats, one of whom is very shy, and Angie's warmth and nonthreatening presence were wonderful in helping even Murphy come out and socialize a bit when she was there. It is clear that she love animals, and approaches them with the same warm and gentle spirit that I have seen in her interactions with me and with her creative projects.
Angie stopped cleaning for me when her creative projects claimed more of her time, and I was sorry to lose her cleaning services, and would be pleased to have her return in the future!
Respectfully,
Ineke Way

Angie Schuyler cleaned my apartment approximately every two or three weeks from January 2008 to May 2015.  (She was willing to cooperate with my somewhat irregular schedule.)  She did a thorough job and was always on the lookout for ways of doing things even better.  She is an intelligent, energetic woman with a pleasant personality.  We had interesting conversations as she worked and I watched, although I should add that we were not able to talk when she was running the vacuum cleaner.  She is also quite creative and came up with original Christmas gifts every year for her clients.  Although I have never had occasion to use her as a house-sitter, I think she would be reliable and trustworthy.

Angie has cleaned my home for me for about five years; I learned about her services through word-of-mouth. She has also occasionally helped with gardening and animal care on my small farm. Angie is honest, hard-working, compassionate and reliable. I have always been completely comfortable having her work in my home when I am not there, including when I am out of town. Angie has not specifically done pet care for me since I have nearby family members do that. However, she clearly loves animals and respects the important role they play in my life and in my home. She has befriended both my dogs and cats. While cleaning, she takes care not to frighten the timid cats! I can confidently recommend Angie as a responsible person who would be a great house sitter.

"Angie always arrives when I expect her to arrive.  She greets me pleasantly, and immediately starts to work.  She can carry on an interesting conversation at the same time she is cleaning.  We don't talk the entire time she is here, but we talk enough that I always get the "good vibes" that are the first two words of the name of her cleaning business, Good Vibes Cleaning.  As for the third word, "cleaning," she cleans both rapidly and thoroughly.  In my apartment are several desks, filing cabinets, and bookcases customarily covered with stacks of paper.  She has somehow found a way to dust around this clutter without disturbing it, and she does it quickly and cheerfully.  She respects my belongings and she's interested in me as a person, but she isn't nosy.  She does a good job on the kitchen and bathrooms, using environmentally friendly products.  She is aware of what is going on in the world and is always looking for ways to improve her service.  Her last step is always to vacuum the carpets.  Somehow she manages to squeeze all this into exactly one hour, no more, no less.  I pay her, we wish each other a good week, and she's gone."

"I call Angie my "cleaning angel" because she brings light and love into my home. I appreciate her powerful cleaning and her gentle spirit. She is accepting of my lifestyle and habits and lifts me up to do more myself as far as cleaning and sorting and discarding are concerned. She is a partner with me in making my home a greener, cleaner, more positive place. Since I do healing work in my home she is invaluable to me. Clients have commented on the cleanliness and welcoming vibration of Rose Petal Cottage. I credit Angie's work."

Kathleen and I parted ways in 2013. I recently (2015) asked her if she still feels this way and if it is okay Ito leave this up. She said, yes.
