Why Are We Home Watch Professionals
Glen and Gary Fredericks are brothers and co-owners of Gold Shield Home Watch. Together, we have a combined experience of over 65 years in law enforcement, security, and the real estate industry. We are retired police officers from the Boston area and are now full-time residents of Fort Myers, Florida. We have been trained in crime prevention, target hardening, crime prevention through environmental design and have advised the public about home security. We are certified members of the National Home Watch Association, the “Gold Standard,” for professional Home Watch Services.
Why You Should Have A Home Watch Service
As stated, we grew up in the Boston area, and like most of you, we did the “Snow Bird” thing after purchasing property in Southwest Florida. We took the chance during our extended absences, that our homes would be ok during the harsh hot summer months. We were glued to the Weather Channel watching the approaching hurricanes and hoping for the best. We did not have a Home Watch service and we both had that constant horrible feeling that something may have happened to our property and our investment. You no longer have to feel that way knowing that your home is cared for by professionals.
Professional and Discreet: Our business is built on one simple philosophy: “To provide people with the key to relaxation and peace-of-mind.” When we say “We are at your service,” we mean it. Everything we do, from prompt scheduling to custom home watch inspections, is built around your particular needs at any given time.
