3. Request for references
Another important step is to request and contact references. Check to see if people are happy with their home watching services. You’ll be able to find out if they do precisely what their clients want. This way, you won’t be having any surprises.

Having a background in construction or property management will make it easier for home watchers to recognize issues and find reliable vendors to fix the problems.
5. Security Backgrounds
It’s not often that you will find a Home Watch Company where staff have backgrounds in security or policing. Our own Louis Moreto has experience as a police officer, where he worked in all areas of law enforcement and rose through the ranks to Chief of Police. This experience has given him the skills and a trained eye to identify problems or areas of concern. When he visits your house, he can point out those things to make your house safer. He can provide you peace of mind that your house is safe when you are away from your desert property.
