"Highly recommended"

I sleep better at night knowing SHWI is caring for our winter home in Florida. Cheryl is always very professional and sends concise reports after every visit. I can see what's going on and respond to any issues that arise in a timely manner, it's quite affordable considering the peace of mind - highly recommended.

Cheryl does an excellent job of making sure everything is in working order at our house. She is sends many pictures of the interior and exterior of the house. Her checklist covers every aspect of our house. I can give her my highest recommendation.

"I would highly recommend this business"

I have recently contracted Sarasota Home Watch (Inc.) to monitor my new home in Sarasota.  From the initial contact I have found Cheryl, the owner, as friendly, responsive and professional. Her initial contract form was very thorough to obtain all necessary information she requires to do a comprehensive job.  Her report is well documented with photos and she is detail oriented and thorough in her examination of the total property both inside and out.  Being a seasonal occupant of my residence, Home Watch has provided me with peace of mind that everything in my home is protected.  I would highly recommend this business to anyone who wants professional good quality protection.  The value of this service is worth it and very reasonable.  The individual attention to my home is stellar.

"It was a lucky day when we found Cheryl"

It was a lucky day when we found Cheryl to keep tabs on our home in Sarasota. Time and time again we have found ourselves completely in Cheryl’s ever capable and competent hands when dealing with any crisis that you can imagine happening to a home 3,000 miles from your residence. Bimonthly, we receive a thorough comprehensive report as to the home’s state of condition with accompanying photographs. Cheryl’s work ethic is hallmarked by her superlative level of professional diligence. We would be happy to recommend Cheryl and Sarasota Home Watch INC to anyone looking for a service that keeps watch over their home like a member of your family.

"We recommend her without reservation."

Two minutes after Cheryl walked into our home for an interview, we realized that she was so organized and on top of everything that we didn’t even need to meet any other home watchers. She is super prepared, extremely diligent about checking absolutely everything when she is at our home, and keeps us posted on everything to do with our home (even the little things like peeling paint). We never have to wait for a response to our emails and feel completely confident that our Sarasota home is in incredibly capable hands. We recommend her without reservation.

"you will have a good night's sleep while you are away!"


Having utilized other home watch services, both in Michigan and Sarasota, we have found Cheryl’s Sarasota Home Watch Inc. to be extremely professional and reliable. She has taken the time to invest in all the proper credentials and insurances that enhances her professional credibility. Adding to her credibility is her responsiveness and her regular updating us on the status of our condo each time she makes her inspections. Cheryl has also performed additional home services that we needed done in our absence. We would highly recommend her and you will have a good night’s sleep while you are away!

"I can't imagine what it would have cost me"

I contacted Sarasota Home Watch Inc. when I needed someone to watch my condo while I spent three months up north.  Cheryl provided more than enough information to make me feel comfortable in hiring her.  Over the three months, she was right on top of providing reports on a timely basis and made an extra visit to check on a contractor's work, providing several pictures, so I didn't have to fly back and see it for myself. When my A/C froze up, Cheryl caught it in time to avoid a disaster.  Florida's heat and humidity could have quickly led to a moldy mess in my condo. I was resistant to hiring a professional home watch company at first, but I can't imagine what it would have cost me if I didn't have Sarasota Home Watch Inc. to look after things for me.

"I was truly lucky to find Sarasota Home Watch Inc."

I travel out of the country nearly 6 months each year over the past several years.  As you can expect, a huge consideration is who will watch my condo. I was truly lucky to find Sarasota Home Watch Inc., owned by Cheryl Dexter.  The comprehensive report and her "energetic...on top of it" attitude is exemplary, to say the least!  I highly recommend her and her business if you want to leave and be worry free that your place is being properly looked after.

We had the good fortune of hiring Sarasota Home Watch Inc. to take care of our home while we are away.  From our first meeting we knew our home would be well cared for. Cheryl has been incredibly responsive, provides a complete and comprehensive weekly report and has been available any time we need her to check on something.  Sarasota Homewatch Inc. has gone above and beyond and have exceeded our expectations. We highly recommend them.
