Home Watch Services Customized to your Needs!

Absentee – Vacant Home Watch Services… peace of mind for Sarasota and Manatee county homeowners.

Home Watch Services are available through Best Handyman Kris Ladd. His service provides homeowners with peace-of-mind during extended stays away from home. He often works with “snow birds” who return North after winter. Kris watches their home, responds to any request and opens the property for when they return.

Now you can travel or take an extended relocation stay and not have to worry about coming home to any unwanted surprises or unscheduled maintenance on your home.

Kris tailors services to meet the individual needs of clients. So, go ahead… Travel… Enjoy life! In the event you are away and he uncovers a needed repair, you will be notified, and the problem taken care of.
