Home Watch, Caretaker, and Estate Management Services
Website Designed by Tami Beckel of Seashells By The Seashore, LLC for Real Estate Places 2012
Real Estate Places is a licensed Florida real estate brokerage with experience managing property for 25 years. Additionally we are bonded and insured, and we are happy to provide home watch, caretaker and estate management services for all snowbirds located in the Manatee and Sarasota County area. Our services are available for anyone who may be away for extended periods of time, whether you are a seasonal or full-time homeowner.
We can eliminate potential hazards by performing comprehensive inspections, which enable us to take corrective action before serious damage occurs. During our comprehensive interior and exterior home watch inspections, the entire home is checked for any issues which could result in a loss to the homeowner regardless of the cause. We only require a service agreement, and we will only bill our clients for services provided while they are out of town which makes us more affordable than other companies over the course of a year. We can design a program tailored to fit your individual needs.
