Estella was the first person we used from SitterCity, so we were a little nervous. She put us at ease right away. Estella is very easy to work with; responsive, prompt, calm and courteous. She was happy to look after the pets as well. Our son is going through a separation-anxiety phase and she handled it with ease. We will definitely be using her again.

Estella is a genuinely warm and kind person; she also gives off this really calm aura, which is something that my wife and I, being very frenetic, can really appreciate.
She got along great with our four-year old and was one of the few babysitters that our daughter has admitted liking. One evening, when my wife and I were really running late, she helped our daughter with dinner and getting ready for bed. We usually don't ask babysitters to be more than playmates but Estella was wonderful with more parenting-type duties.
In short, we completely trust her with Clara and we book her now whenever we want a night out for ourselves!

Estella is a prompt, reliable, and warm caregiver. She is the first sitter we hired from this site about 5 months ago and we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the service she provides. When we leave our 11 month old son with her, we know we can relax and enjoy ourselves because our baby is in good hands.

Estella babysat on multiple occasions for my 4-year-old daughter. Estella is reliable, trustworthy, and enthusiastic about caring for children. My daughter loves her very much and we are confident that she is getting high quality care from Estella. We would very much like to recommend Estella to other families. Please feel free to obtain our contact infromation from Estella and call us for any further references.

Can not say enough about Estella. She is a gem. We will be asking her to sit for us many many more times. :)

Estella is a great sitter. She has a warm, but firm manner that our son on the autism spectrum really responds to!

Estella started sitting for us when my girls were ~ 6 months and ~5 yo. She very adeptly balanced both of their needs and fully engaged them in a variety of activities from hide-and-go-seek to playing Princess to artwork. She was very comfortable changing diapers and preparing bottles and always kept a mindful eye on our fast crawler. My oldest would ask very hopefully every week if Estella was coming on Sunday.

Estella was one of the first sitters we used other than our au pair and I was of course very hesitant, but from the initial phone interview she put m at ease. She asks questions (which was a nice change) to be sure she was applying household and parent rules to maintain consistency for the girls.

Estella is professional, organized, reliable, personable and loves kids. Finding a good sitter, especially in the DC area, is daunting and scary. I am very comfortable leaving my girls in Estella's capable hands and highly recommend her.

I am a first time mom and this was my first experience leaving my child (and dog!) in someone's care who is not family. I was scared! Estella's application for babysitting our 11 month old girl put me at ease right away and her willingness to meet us prior to the job was great. She was quick to respond via email and phone and was prompt for both the interview and job. Her disposition was calm, warm and sweet; our dog and baby girl took to her right away. Estella was so thorough she almost coached me along the way on what we needed to go over regarding home, food, timeline etc. My husband was present for both the interview and getting ready to go out and he said he was as calm as he could be leaving our little girl - for a doting, protective first time father that's saying something. We will most definitely work with Estella again as she was just perfect for our family.
