Standard Services

Why should you concern yourself with having a professional home watch service for your home while you are away? It goes without saying that you want a quality home protection plan for your investment. As a seasonal resident or absentee owner, we offer you the peace of mind you need when away from the property.

We customize a home watch plan based upon your schedule, your needs, and your homes features. As part of our home watch plan, we check the interior and exterior to identify any potential issues before they become a major problem. We remove outside clues that your home is vacant.  If we identify a problem, we contact you immediately to coordinate an action plan.

And we all know that things will happen. It's not about the what, when and how bad; it's about how the situation can be managed with swift and professional service! Regular visits can mean the difference between potential disaster and real disaster. We are not just house sitters, we are professional home watch providers that understand the value of your property, what to watch for, and just how to develop a quality home protection plan.

If you are at your paradise home and something happens, such as the air conditioner not cooling, or a toilet water line starting to leak, you know what to do and you can take care of it and prevent “Damage turning into Disaster”. But what happens when you are not there? Maybe you are enjoying the grandchildren up north and those small damages in paradise are ready to turn into a disaster. This could cost you big dollars as well as additional cost to come down and supervise the repairs; not to mention the loss of your valuable time.

Our sole purpose is to give you a sense of comfort and to prevent those damages from turning into disasters. You can count on professionalism from GK Home Watch, LLC because we are far greater than a house sitter. Our training, vast resources and commitment to partnering with you, the owner means you rest easy with a quality home protection plan. We practice the highest standards in the industry and always endeavor to exceed your expectations. One thing to remember is the longer the damage is not taken care of, the larger the disaster. It only takes 72 hours for mold to bloom!
