Five Star Home Watch LLC is an affordable and reliable home watch service for the Lakewood Ranch/ East Manatee County area.  We alleviate the stress and anxiety countless homeowners face when trying to manage their homes from a distance.  Our goal is to create lasting relationships with our clients by providing the dependable and first class service your home deserves.

There are three different packages that provide regularly scheduled visits to your home, including visual inspections to the interior and exterior.  The frequency of visits will be determined by the homeowner, however most clients prefer to have their home monitored weekly.  At each visit a checklist will be completed and sent to you for your records.  You will be notified immediately of any concerns or problems and pictures will be included for documentation.  If there are any stipulations not listed that you require I will be glad to discuss them with you at our initial visit.  I am fully insured and bonded and will provide copies upon request.


The-Js-w-nameI joined Cleveland EMS in 1980 and 2 years later the Fairlawn Fire Department where I retired as the department’s senior Captain in 2011.  My 30 years of public service as a firefighter and paramedic in Northeast Ohio afforded me the opportunity to provide the highest level of care to my community and their loved ones.

Since relocating full time to Lakewood Ranch with my wife Joyce, I have continued my passion for providing top quality care by actively volunteering throughout the community at the Ringling Museum and the Sarasota Meals on Wheels.  It is through my community interactions that I recognized and appreciated the numerous concerns many homeowners go through when seeking a responsible and trust worthy professional to care for their homes while they are away.

I started Five Star Home Watch LLC to mitigate those concerns by applying the dependable, responsible and premium quality care that is my passion and what your home deserves.
