When Problems Occur We Handle It!

You can count on professional handling of your property and home issues. We notify you of any problems and make recommendations to correct them. We put our knowledge of community trades people to work for you.

We will organize the necessary service, meet with the repair person and admit them into your home. We will stay until the repair person has completed his/her work, set alarms and lock up following their departure. We can also send digital photo of problems or completed repairs by email. The property owner is the person who decides what exact repair is to be done and how much money is to be spent. The homeowner has full control and the final say, regarding the satisfaction or outcome of work completed. Personal Property Managers will carry out your specifics wishes. We become your eyes, ears and voice, when you can not be here to manage your home details.

How Is A Crisis Situation Handled?

When a crisis occurs (and they do!) you will be glad it isn’t your neighbor watching over your home! You will have peace-of-mind because you have a professional service in place to handle these upsetting events. There is no worry with Personal Property Managers!

A crisis is handled on the spot. There may not be time to call the homeowner to get pre-approval for expenditures in this case. The main concern in a crisis is to get the situation under control as fast as possible. You will be called as soon as it is feasible. Many times a homeowner can not be reached immediately and the situation can not wait. We have saved further destruction of homes by fast action. Your crisis may need an immediate plumber, electrician, sewer technician or handyman before we can locate you. We completely handle any crisis. This is one of the qualities you will want from a home service company like ours. When hiring an “absentee home watcher” always ask yourself whether the company/person you are hiring can efficiently handle emergency situations? This is what separates a professional service from the local person who “watches homes on the side.” We focus solely on our business and we have the highest reputation to prove it!

World Wide Access

We report all our activities to you from the comfort of your computer. You can see our work from anywhere in the world via our exclusive Internet access. While you are away, you will be given special access to online messages and digital photos of your home and any needed work or repairs. All home visits are documented and digitally photographed per your requirements. A copy of our checklist and pictures will be forwarded to you at your request. Now you can relax and leave the details to us.
