7. RESIDENT ADS
SEEKING TREE REMOVAL SERVICE
I am looking for a tree removal service that is good and affordable. There is a diseased tree near the house. Please contact Gail Ravins 310 475 4353 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
SEEKING CLEANING CREW
Is anyone in the neighborhood using a CLEANING CREW instead of a housekeeper? I’d so appreciate a good, trustworthy recommendation. Thanks in advance. Carole
email@example.com or 310-475-9304
I am looking for a great housekeeper either live-in or 3-4 days a week. I am flexible. Spanish speaking is no problem.
If anyone knows someone who might be interested, please call Robin at (310) 403-3457.
SEEKING SUMMER BABYSITTER
Looking for weekly babysitting help with two children, ages 10 and 11, primarily on Tuesday-Wednesday-Thursday in mid-July to mid-August. Hours may vary but primarily 4:00-7:00 pm. Must enjoy dogs. Ability to drive preferred but not required. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested.
EARLY MORNING HELP NEEDED
We are looking for someone to come from roughly 6:30-8 a.m. Monday through Friday to help get two boys (3 and 6) ready for school, e.g. getting breakfast and lunches ready, and kids dressed. A very involved father would be home too but mother will be off at work early so she can be home early to pick up kids from school. The ideal person would be someone already working in the area a little later in the morning, with an excellent reference, and wishing to pick up some extra hours.
Please contact email@example.com or 310-990-4969
BABYSITTING AND DOG WALKING SERVICES
We are sisters age 18 and 20, looking for baby-sitting jobs this summer, and also can do dog walking during the days for people who are away or working. We have previous babysitting experience, with very satisfied parents, AND we live in the neighborhood!
Please call Libby (18 years old) 310-989-9298 or Hayley (20 years old) 310-989-6388. For more information, please click here
