  • Description


    Hello. My husband Jeff and I are in our 50s and 60s. We live in a 4200 square foot home, and we back on to a lake although you can't swim there it is quite beautiful. We are looking for a mature, self-directed, experienced, and competent person who can photograph and post things on Facebook for sale. Some research to get appropriate pricing will be necessary. Because of covid-19 you will have your own kitchen that you share with only one other person and we will ask that you provide yr own food. Dog walking our large dogs will also be helpful, and cleaning as needed. Beyond that, Markham is a beautiful place to spend time.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    As far as what we can offer as a cultural exchange, you will really experience true Canadian life! We are close to Toronto, Ontario...about 35 mins. We can tell you many things about life here...while we borrow your extra hands..:) We are half an hour north of Toronto....always something new to see or do! :) Reach out and get in touch and see if we can be of help to one another. You will learn how NOT to collect lots of stuff!
