The literal definition of a vacation is a period of suspension from work, study, or other activity, usually used for rest, recreation or travel. However, often times we find ourselves unable to relax while on vacation or when traveling for work due to the things we have left behind. Questions and anxieties circle our minds like pesky gnats. Did I remember the set the alarm? Is my dog depressed alone in the kennel? Did my friend remember to water all of my plants? Will strangers notice the mail piling up in my mailbox?

At Collins and Company, we not only specialize in all of your real estate needs, but we also offer a unique concierge service for those times when you are not around to care for your home yourself. One aspect of this concierge service is our pet and home sitting program allowing you to stop worrying about what is going on at home and to get back to enjoying your travels. Whether it is that vacation you have worked so hard for all year long or important business meeting you have spent hours to prepare, the team at Collins and Company are here to alleviate your anxieties about leaving your home. We are very flexible with our house and pet sitting needs and work on a personal level to accommodate each one of our clients. Whether you require someone to live at your house while you are away or simply stop by on a daily basis to gather the mail and water the plants, we work to accommodate the individual. Save a fortune on animal boarding fees and home maintenance upkeep. What better alarm system than having an actual individual on premises at all times? Some of our services include:
