Quit after three days without notice.

- Monique C.

Provider's Response

In response to your message...I did not quit without notice-I tried numerous times to contact you & your wife, to no avail. At the beginning of the week I was promised a contract; which was not recieved until the end of the week. I realized after searching another child care website that this family was still looking because they were signed in two days after I was hired. These factors attributed to my decision not to accept the position & sign their contract. However, I do not understand why they wish to slander my name on this website-very unprofessional.

Very reassuring sitter. She called ahead to confirm that she was coming. She was professional, reliable, and I left the house knowing that my kids were in great hands. My three kids found her entertaining and fun. Would definitely ask her back.

Renee,

She was wonderful. My son absolutely loved having Renee as his babysitter. She played games with him both inside and outside. This was my son's first babysitting experience (outside) of my family, and I was very nervous, however after meeting her I really felt comfortable. She was very professional and friendly. In fact, once I returned home, my son was not ready for her to leave. My husband and I were very pleased with her service and would definitely use her services again. Great, great child care professional.

- Terrill W.

My two kids really enjoy Renee. I have an 8 yr. old girl and a 4 yr. old boy. She is professional, on time, has a pleasant personality and most important, she is reliable. We love her!

- Rahkel B.

Renee watched our 10 month old son and did a good job. She seemed very responsible and reliable. She showed up early and even texted me to let me know when my son fell asleep. I would definitely recommend her services.

Renee' has been a great sitter for my youngest son Preston! She is always on time and dependable. I feel safe leaving Renee' in my home with my son because I know that he will be well taken care of, as he is. Without question I will hire her in the future!

Even though Renee' never officially got to sit for my daughter (although she will in the very near future), her professionalism was EXCELLENT. She provided all the necessary documentation during her initial interview and communication skills were on point. I look forward to working with her and I would highly reccommend her to anyone.

Renee babysat for my three children on two different occasions. She was on time, reliable, and cheerful. My kids enjoyed playing games with her.

Renee came to the interview promptly and prepared with various certificates and background information. She answered questions well and I was able to observe her with my children. We have a 6 year old daughter and 1 year old son. She has cared for the kids on two occasions for about 5 hours and I felt at ease both times. She confirms the schedule, reports on time and communicates with you during your absence. I have never used the internet to identify babysitters, but I am glad that I found Renee. She actively engages with the kids and they enjoy her. She took them to Chuck E. Cheese once and Burger King another time. My daughter keeps talking about Ms. Renee and has enjoyed their outings. We hope she will care for our children for as long as possible and on a regular basis. Our goal has been to identify several care providers that we can call in when needed who will be an extension to our family. We have found one such person in Renee. She is reliable and trustworthy. She is a keeper! I have already referred her to my friends.

Renee' was an excellent sitter. She was prompt and very flexible with the schedule. My son had a fabulous time with her and she managed to get him to sleep at a reasonable time, which isn't always that easy! I would definitely recommend Renee'.

- Debra R.
5

Renee' is an excellent sitter - my 2 "energetic" boys had a great time! My eldest is a type 1 diabetic and Renee' followed his care instructions to the letter. Thanks, Renee' for coming at the last minute and fitting in perfectly! I look forward to hiring Renee' again. Joy M

I would highly recommend Renee. My son is autistic and he loves Renee and feels very comfortable with her. He doesn't feel comfortable with alot of people, but he took to her very well. She is very energetic and always played with the children. She was always a blessing to our family!

~ Reneé has been wonderful to my two sons. They are always full of energy and she is always ready for it. :) She is very energetic, caring, and most importantly - punctual. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who is looking for a sitter. These reviews mean a lot to me, especially because I don't have family in the area and it's difficult to trust someone you don't know. With Reneé ~ I feel at ease and confident that my children are not only safe, but happy!

- Veronica S.
5

Renee is incredibly personable, caring, and truly is an exceptional babysitter. From the moment my husband and I left to the moment we came home, I knew that my son was being well taken care of. She texted me a couple of times throughout the night just to let us know that Kelly was doing well, which I really appreciated! I would definitely recommend Renee as a reliable, loving, and responsible babysitter to any parent, and we certainly will be calling her again.

- Susan M.

Renee' came to our rescue! I had a doctor's appt,in Rockville and I couldn't take our son, Edward. I contacted Renee' on Thursday and moments later she contacted us! She arrived early for her interview on Friday and came prepared with her certiciations and photo I.D. this really impressed me. I also received a "sterling" reference from her bio page! Renee' was willing to be at our home at 6:30 a.m. on a Saturday morning!!
She was courteous, on time, pleasant and respectful. I am considering using her on a regular basis -- we just moved to Annapolis this past September and it has not been easy finding reliable, plus 24 - hour notice child care on a weekend.... best of luck!

Renee is a very professional young lady and made an excellent impression the short time we had to get to know one another. She was very promt and proactive in her efforts to get to my home.
If you would like a babysitter/nanny that is reliable Renee is you girl.

Sincerely,

Renee' is an extremely professional sitter with excellent qualifications. My children had a great time with her. I would definitely use her again and recommend her to friends.

Renee~ Is an awesome sitter. My son Jefferson has fallen in love with her. I feel relieved to have found such a wonderful person to watch my son. I leave my house everyday knowing that my son is well taken care of. She is very reliable, professional, and personable which means a lot when looking for childcare for your most precious gift. I would highly recommend Renee to any family. She is a life saver.

Renee' was on time and professional, she seemed able to handle Austin even though he is in sort of a shy/fear of strangers phase. She replied to texts when we sent a 'checking in' text. Asked if we could pay in cash instead of check. Overall a good experience.

Renee has sat for my now five year old daughter on several occasions. She is prompt, reliable, professional, friendly and quite good with kids.

Renee babysat for my two boys once. We had no problems whatsoever. I posted for a sitter at the eleventh hour and she responded immediately and was at my house only a few hours later! She was a real life saver and the boys liked her too. I'd have no hesititation calling her again. -saira

Renee is a lifesaver. She drops my son off at daycare after delivering him at O'dark thirty so I can take the train to work a tad earlier, and is 150% reliable, hopefully I can even depend on her when he isn't able to attend daycare. He seems to take to her quite easily so far. I recommend her for anything you need. She even came first time we met her with credentials/experience.

- Marcus J.
5

Renee has baby sat for us on two occasions. She has a mild mannered, low-key demeanor to which all three of my children responded well. After she baby sat for them once, my children asked could “Renee� come and baby sit for them again. As my oldest daughter emphasized – “mommy she even offered to cook for us�. She is a reliable and very responsive young lady who runs her business in a professional manner. We will definitely have her come back again.

- Claudia J.

Renee is an excellent choice if you are looking for someone who is professional, responsible, responsive, punctual, proactive and fun. From her initial interview, my husband and I were impressed by her upfront, honest and candid responses to our questions. She showed up with copies of all her certifications. She does after school care for my 6 year old son and 3 year old daughter. My children absolutely love her. I have never once doubted that my children where in capable hands, as she does not hesitate to provide information on where she is and what she is doing with the kids. If she knows she's not going to be available on a certain day, she makes arrangements so that the childcare services we require is not compromised.

I would recommend her to all of my friends. Don't hesitate to make Renee your #1 sitter choice.

Renee was very professional and came with credentials in hand. The children took a liking to her. She is very timely and reliable. I recommend her for any childcare needs you may have.

- Shannon J.

Renee is the consummate childcare professional. She arrived extra early and brought me copies of her credentials which I greatly appreciated. The most important thing is that my kiddos liked her a lot and asked when she could come again as soon as she left. With Renee you are not simply hiring a babysitter, you are hiring a professional that will ensure the safety of your children and also loves to interact with them. I highly recommend her!

- Jennifer C.

Renee has babysat for me a few times. She has been willing to come on short notice, she came prepared with certifications in hand, she came on time and my children had a good time with her. I would recommend her as a babysitter/nanny and I will be sure to call her again when i need someone to baysit my children.

- Lana B.
5

Renee was an excellent sitter. She watched our 3 kids over night for a weekend and several days throughout the week. We were very impressed with the way she interacted with our children. We feel confident leaving our children with Renee and kids always enjoy her when she comes to sit for us. She has exceeded our expectations and would our first choice when seeking future childcare.

- Crystal C.
5

Renee was great. She arrived before the appointed time, brought her certifications, and was very professional. But more importantly, the kids loved her immediately! She knew how to interact with them and put them at ease. They kids were exclaiming how much fun they had. Wouldn't hesitate to hire or recommend her!

- Jennifer H.

I hired Renee' on 10 July from 8 p.m. to 3 a.m. It was a pleasure having her take care of my daughter. She came over promptly at 8 p.m., was very polite and professional. I was able to enjoy my night out with friends knowing that my daughter was in good hands. I will definitely be using Renee' for all my babysitting needs. =)

- Priscila B.
5

Renee is incredibly responsive, and communicates well. She arrived promptly for the interview with copies of her certificates, and was obviously a well qualified sitter. My two year old daughter was not happy at being left with a sitter (it was the first time) and was crying when we left. Two hours later, Renee and Kyla were friends. Highly recommended, and we will use her again.

- Rob B.

My son loves Miss Renee!
Renee has been awesome! She has been flexible and very accomodating. We would recommend her to anyone needing a sitter.

Renee was responsible for taking our son to and from Summer Academy and later to and from Summer Academy and his tutor. She was very professional and flexible with our always changing schedule. She was on time and kept very good communication with us. She took our son to Chuck E. Cheese and to the park, as well as played board games with him.

- Cheryl R.
5

Renee, you are a gem. I appreciate you taking care of my kids for me on two separate occasions. Thank you for taking them to Chuck E Cheese's. They had a ball.

I appreciate you arriving at my home at the crack o' dawn (4:30 am) last week just so I could leave in time to go on my mini-getaway. I appreciate the itinerary you made for me so I could know exactly what your activities would entail (along with names, addresses and phone numbers) with my kids during the 5 days I would be gone.

I appreciate you doing my daughter's hair for me in my absence (when I was worried it would look a mess when I returned) without me even asking.

The kids said you were nice, and that's all a parent can ask for -- A nice sitter who will be responsible in their absence.

Keep doing what you do. And... I won the challenge? I did not call AS MUCH as we thought I would :-) ha ha...

Renee is a calm, patient, and pleasant person. She came for an interview on her own time at my request, and played with my children to get to know them. She was fun, and yet firm when they were fighting and needed intervention. She has a very soothing manner, and she talked down my daughter's temper tantrum very quickly. She is punctual and professional, and my children adore her. We will definitely use her again!

- Ashley F.

I have had the pleasure to work with Renee' on several occasions. She has a talent of putting children at ease. I find Renee' to very confident in her ability to care for children. That confidence resonates with parents and puts them at ease as well. Children are drawn her fun loving personality and her sense of humor. We have found her to be responsible and reliable, and will always call on her when we are in the Baltimore/Washington area.

Renee' is a very punctual, very responsive sitter. She was excellent about checking in with us throughout the week to see if our plans had changed before she came over. Our daughter, 2 1/2, seemed to have had a great time with 'Ms. Renee' and had no trouble adjusting to a new face in the house. Renee' even went so far as to send us a message letting us know that our daughter was sound asleep and had no trouble. We definitely hope to use her again.

My bf and I had a long businesss trip to go to and we were really disorganized but Renee was willing to work with us dispite the inconvenience. She right away showed her qualifications :) and she seemed very positive, energetic, and reliable. My sons seemed to enjoy the weekend because they looked around the house for her Monday morning and she managed to get my lil monsters in the playpen together without them fighting! My bf and I are eager to work with her again and are really, really glad that she made our trip possible. We even were running extremely late, but she worked with us which is amazing!!! (we ended up only arriving home at midnight when we planned on being home by 8pm) I definately recommand Renee, she is amazing, and my family will definately be calling her again.

Renee is a wonderful sitter! She is energetic and very professional. She provides a host of references that have nothing but positive things to say about the service Renee provides. Renee sat for my 2 sons and also picked them up from after school care. They felt very comfortable with her. Renee has even attended one of our boys basketball game on her off day. I highly recommend Renee sitter services.

Renee was very good with our kids; the truly enjoyed her. We were very pleased with her service; specifically her punctuality and updates on the kids while sitting. We are planning to hire Renee again for a upcoming job.

Renee' was wonderful and she stepped in to assist me with what I needed. She was prompt every morning, my child felt very comfortable with her, and I felt safe leaving my child under her care. I highly recommend her because she has great up to date credentials and she's aspiring to be an educator. I will definitely call her again when needed.

- Kendy F.

Renee was very professional and my son was a happy camper when we returned. We haven't had too many sitters for our 2 year old son and we were comfortable knowing we were leaving him in good hands for the day.

I am only writing this to perhaps offer a lesson to a young lady who may do well to 'coarse correct' professional dealings.
Live and learn as they say.
This is long mind you, but accurate and specific.
I just ventured on Sittercity to seek out a sitter and/or nanny for my 4 month old daughter.
Ms. Renee N. responded to my following ad:
"I am looking for someone for an ongoing basis. Price negotiable based on experience/duties for ongoing/weekly schedule. Part-time. I have 4 month old daughter and work nights. However, days may be needed. flexible schedule a plus. Light house work may be asked, but that would be worked out as needed if you're able. On border Hawthorne/Manhattan Beach.
please send over info with your interest. Thank you! (note; we have pets. two well mannered cats who pretty much keep to themselves. so no allergies please)
Rate: $8 / Hour - $15 / Hour"
Renee contacted me about employment and I got back to her with a phone call. During this call I asked when she would be available to meet/greet. I was offering $10hr for 3 hrs. This would include an in person interview and then time with my daughter when my husband and I were home. Just as an initial intro.
To this Renee agreed and I was looking forward to meeting her the next day at 11:30am.
I followed up as discussed with my address/contact info via Sittercity as follows: You | Feb 3, 2012 @ 11:33am - Hello Renee; We are looking forward to meeting you tomorrow. As discussed 11:30am (Sat.) would be best for a 3 hr "get to know you" at $10 hr. Again, our daughter is 4 months old.Address is 48__ W 13__ pl, __, CA 90___ Home # 310.67____(info blocked out for this review). Best,Neva, Brian, and Simone Maya :)
Then I get an email from her: Renee' N. | Feb 3, 2012 @ 11:56am - "Thank you for contacting me. After careful consideration...I am unable to accept $10/hr. I charge $17 and up for Nannying/babysitting newborns. I am sorry and I wish you the very best for your bundle of joy. ~Renee' "
When I tried to respond her with the following I found it would not go through: "As discussed on the phone. $10 for 3 hours was the trial rate just for that time. It was not a final number. This was stated clearly. My ad clearly stated our range and $15 is the top dollar we will pay. Now you are saying $17, this is odd. You coming out, us talking and your staying a total of 3 hrs is what were going to pay for at $10 hr. You were basically being paid for your time to sit down with us to talk, and then stay with us while we were here with you and spend time with the baby. Our witnessing your dynamic and being available to guide you with anything specific with our daughter (as every baby has their own personality, quirks, style of tricks that work for soothing, etc.). Also, it was for her to get used to a new face as well to prep for her being alone with a 'stranger'. For this $10hr for a paid interview and such is very fair. Good luck to you." AGAIN, THIS MESSAGE DID NOT GO THROUGH. IT WAS BECAUSE RENEE SENT HER EMAIL AND THEN BLOCKED US FROM RESPONDING. I FOUND THIS OUT ONLY BY CALLING SITTERCITY.
Apparently she was aware that what she pulled was not the most professional behavior and was trying to avoid a review. The company agreed with this after investigation of her activity on the site and our correspondences. then they allowed me to post this review.
As a working mother, time is precious. Although it does take time to sift through applicants to find the right fit for a nanny ESPECIALLY with a young infant, to have someone blatantly take up your precious time is not good - to say the least. I find this a bit adolescent and there is certainly room for improvement. Renee could have even written that $10 was not enough and ask for more, but she left no room for negotiation because I WAS IMMEDIATELY BLOCKED BY HER . PLUS, in this last email she said she wouldn't do the job for less than $17 when it was clearly written in my ad she answered that the top range of pay for us was $15.
Now I've taken quite a bit of time out of my day following up on this. It's frustrating as I said, and as parents know, time is precious. Renee would do well to respond to ads that are within her pay range instead of leading a parent on (I would have paid $15hr), and not be so cut and dry
after making appointments and then changing her mind. Just bad form. In the long run I suppose I dodged a bullet here.... NOW I have a hungry infant who needs my attention.

- Neva C.

Provider's Response

I am sorry you were offended to this magnitude. Yes...your ad did state you are willing to pay between $8-$15/hr and mine states that I charge between $15-$20/hr. You never said over the phone that the pay rate was only for the trial run. I sit for families who have infants and am paid at min, $15/hr. I would have graciously cared for your daughter for that rate; instead you chose to openly try to humiliate me on this site. I blocked you because I knew you were not up for negotiation with the rate of pay and that it would result in a review such as this one. We weren't a good fit for one another. I apply to jobs within my rate specifications and they are honored by families. I'm a Professional in the way that I transact my business and my 46 positive reviews and references can attest to this very fact. Thank you for taking the time to post on my behalf. All the Best. I hope your daughter is cared for by the best Nanny out there!

Our three kids loved Renee! We have an 8 year old, a 4 year old, and a toddler, and I could tell she felt totally comfortable with each age group. And trust me, our youngest can be a handful! She's great at communication. She called before she came over, and texted me while we were out to let me know all was well. We even called to see if she minded staying later, and she had no problem with that! When I asked our oldest how the night went, she said "Great! When can she come again?". We will definitely call Renee the next time we need a sitter. She is experienced and reliable.

Renee has been a wonderful babysitter for my three month old twin boys. She is very responsive and professional, consistently arriving on time with lots of energy and enthusiasm. She has demonstrated a clear ability and fondness for caring for small children and I would strongly recommend her for any other babysitting or nanny job opportunties.

Pool Party Chaperone

I hired Renee' to be a Pool Party Chaperone for my 8 year old's Birthday Party today. I must say she was very friendly, kind, and most of all Punctual! She even beat me to the venue! She was absolutely wonderful with the children inside of the pool, helping them have the time of their lives. She was very interactive with all of them, especially when helping them get on the large pool toys (Bikes, Boats, Slides, etc.) and pushing them around the entire length of the pool. They really enjoyed her, as I did since I did not have to get in the pool with them! I would hire her again without a second thought.

great experience

Renee arrived on time, and was totally engaged with the kids. They played the whole time we were gone and the boys had a great time.
