Testimonials.

I just want to say how fantastic [Lucy] is.  Lucy is a brilliant, warm multi diminutional person.  She was what I ideally wished for when signing up for the service and I am just floored.  She played chess with my five year old, practiced mandarin, played games and encouraged her....We are in town for a National Fencing Tournament and I would not have been able to participate without the quality of help from Lucy." - Rita, Richmond, VA

 

We are an Army family that recently relocated to the area. My husband went back to work and I soon found out that hourly childcare on post here was just not an option. Luckily, I found ASAP Sitters. It is easy to request a sitter, and their customer service is excellent. They have responded to both emails and voicemails very promptly. We used their services this week, and the sitter that came was simply awesome. She was extremely professional, and very experienced! Our toddler took to her right away, and she was comfortable dealing with our two dogs! I plan on continuing to use ASAP Sitters, and highly recommend their service. - On YELP

 

Very attentive and quick service. Love the attention our family has been getting from ASAPSitters since we signed up! - Celia, Alexandria

 

 [I] just wanted to let you know that we were exceptionally happy with Janell and her ability and spirit to care for [our son]. She was just a perfect fill in and was very sweet. Just what [our son] and Mama needed during a very chaotic situation!  Thanks! - Sheri, Alexandria, VA

 

I'm so pleased with ASAP and delighted that we've finally found a few folks we can work with all the time. Many thanks. - Lisa, Alexandria, VA

 

Dear Ewa, Paulina...did a superb job, the kids gave her rave reviews.  [Our daughter] taught her rainbow loom and [our son] shared his new airplane toys from the Air and Space Museum.  She was exactly on time, looked great and was very polite and presentable.  We had no concerns whatsoever. Thank you very much for your excellent service, especially with the short notice and the new customer.  We will remember you when we are in the area again.  My spouse and I enjoyed a very high quality night out with our conference connections, which you made possible.  Thanks again! - Brian B., New York
 

 

You are so awesome to work with, and we have really loved all of our babysitters.  :) - Ilissa, Washington, DC

 

Ewa, Just wanted to thank you for your help. Ashley was fantastic. We were so happy with her and with your service in general. We didn't know what we were going to do in middle of last week until we found out about ASAPSitters. You made our weekend. Gratefully yours, Edward Kerr (from the cast of "Pretty Little Liars"). Charlottesville, VA

 

 Ewa, I can't say enough good things about this experience and about Paulina!! The boys loved her (which is no small feat) and she was incredibly communicative and professional. AAA+++ in my book.  This was the best babysitter experience ever and I will use you and her again!! Thanks so much! - Paul, McLean, VA

 

 Thank you for referring Jessica as our babysitter for last night.  She was very friendly and professional and the kids loved her. - Amanda, Falls Church
