Home Watch Boot Camp

Home Watch Boot Camp

Comments

I’d really like to thank Carl, my boot camp instructor. I’ve done “Home Watch” over the years but after my boot camp I realized I had very little understanding on what all was involved in a home watch business. I not only loved the training, but how Carl helped as much with assisting me on how to operate the business successfully. I would not hesitate encouraging anyone interested in a home watch business to DEFINITELY sign up for the boot camp. It’s the best investment in your success. Thanks again Carl and Jack for everything you do not only for the home watch business but for those of us in the business
I attended the Home Watch Boot Camp in Dec 2018, and it was great! Carl is very knowledgeable about the business, and all the important topics were covered. We went through an actual home watch visit, with Carl reviewing my technique and knowledge. I would recommend this boot camp to anyone who is considering entering the home watch business!

Home Watch Boot Camp is a training program designed by Home Watch industry leaders that follows the e Why Home Watch Boot Camp? So, Dana came to see me. Simple.

As the Founder and Executive Director of the National Home Watch Association, I have gained a lot of knowledge from our US and Canadian members over the last 10+ years. I have seen people start up - and their businesses take off. I have also seen good people start their businesses and they never get off the ground, and wind up going out. I have always felt that if only they would have had a better

Congratulations to Trisha Silver on her completion of Home Watch Boot Camp with Jason McGarvey! Trisha has received her Certified Home Watch Professional designation and is a graduate of the NHWA’s Home Watch Boot Camp.


It was a privilege to conduct the NHWA’s Home Watch Boot Camp training with Trisha Silver, Owner of Neighbor Home Watch, LLC, in Naples. FL.

Trisha is a longtime Florida resident and has previously owned a home health care company. Trisha has a heart to help people and being involved in such a personal business as home health care, the transition into home watch made all the sense in the world. Trisha knew the importance of home watch in an unoccupied home and she knew setting up a home watch company by being accredited by the NHWA would set her apart and provide a first class level of service. Trisha went through a 2 day, one on one training including onsite home watch inspections/checks, business curriculum and curriculum tailored to the Southeastern U.S.

What I liked most about training Trisha was she was very inquisitive and focused on always putting the client first. She was able to see right away how she could provide a first class level service and build a solid foundation right out of the gate as a new company.

Trisha completed the Home Watch Boot Camp and also received the designation of “Certified Home Watch Professional”.

Congratulations Trisha, we wish you much success as you serve the homeowners in Naples, FL and surrounding areas.

On February 9th and 10th, 2023 I had the privilege of conducting the NHWA Home Watch Boot Camp Training for Paul Oser from Palm City, FL. Paul is about to launch Houseminder LLC, serving
Martin County.

Paul has been in the landscape and landscape design industry for years and throughout this time he has been approached by many of his client homeowners to provide home management and home watch services. His clients are inquiring about caring for their property when they are away and in addition taking care of all the many projects that come up while they are here that they do not want to concern themselves with.

It became clear to Paul that there is definitely a demand for these services but because he only had a cursory idea of what it might involve as a real profession, he sought out membership in the largest trade organization for these service providers- the National Home Watch Association to learn more.

The Boot Camp consists of two 8 hours days with both classroom and hands on training. Paul passed his Certified Home Watch Professional exam with a score of 100%.

Paul will most definitely bring the Gold Standard of Service to the Home Watch Industry!

Congratulations, Paul! I wish you great success!

Why Home Watch Boot Camp?

As the Founder and Executive Director of the National Home Watch Association, I have gained a lot of knowledge from our US and Canadian members over the last 10 years. I have seen people start up - and their businesses take off. I have also seen good people start their businesses and they never get off the ground, and wind up going out. I have always felt that if only they would have had a better foundation for their business, they would have made it.

The original idea for a “Boot Camp” came back in 2010, when Dana Salo called me and asked if he could come and spend a couple of days with me here in South Carolina. Dana lives on Cape Ann which is just north of Boston, and was in the early stages of forming his company. So Dana came to see me. For two days we talked about every aspect of business that we could think of, while we rode in the truck going to perform Home Watch visits at some of my client’s homes. I showed him how and why I looked at different things in the homes. He asked questions, and I answered - right then, and right there. It was great. And Dana continues to grow his company - and reputation - year after year.

A big part of my job with the NHWA has been to mentor companies and give guidance when asked. Every time I was asked about a training program, I explained that the NHWA was built on the sharing of knowledge, and that we learned from each other. But the requests kept coming for in-depth training. New companies were craving it, and novice companies wanted more conversation and hands-on, down in the dirt know-how. And so only because I knew that I had the right people to formulate “ Boot Camp”, did I decide that the time was right. So, I called Carl Lorenzini of Homewatch Services, Etc. (Estero, Florida) and JP Lalonde of Home Watcher LV (Las Vegas, Nevada) and we talked...and talked. I laid out what I had envisioned : One-on-one training, done with no more than one company at a time; we’d physically visit homes and teach at each location. we’d teach HOW a Home Watch visit is properly performed, not what some people thought it was. We would train using the NHWA’s Best Practices and Glossary, and have meaningful, real-life conversations about what the “boot” should know about marketing, invoicing and getting paid, reporting to the client and building a client base; How to negotiate with contractors and vendors. We would help them overcome fears about starting a new business. There is a lot to talk about, and I believe that being one-on-one is the best way to teach. And finally, by holding Boot Camps around the US and Canada, the training will vary to address different climates and locales. Certain things that are crucial to know in South Carolina, mean nothing in Arizona. What is needed in Minneapolis doesn’t necessarily make sense in West Palm Beach., and so on. Carl, JP and I have put a lot of thought and preparation into the curriculum. We’ve asked Rebecca Andersen of Seasons Home Watch (Mound, MN) to instruct our Mid-Western “boots” . And of course, Dana Salo of Salo Home Watch (Rockport, MA) will teach in the Northeast. Carl Lorenzini will instruct in Southwest Florida, JP Lalonde in Las Vegas, and I will handle will conduct Boot Camp for the Mid-Atlantic states. We will be adding locations in the Pacific Northwest, as well as Eastern and Western Canada as soon as possible.

So why Home Watch Boot Camp? Simple. You’ll spend two days, in a one-on-on situation in a location more suited to your own new company, learning the very best curriculum, which has been developed by industry leaders who operate successful Home Watch companies in your region. The training will take place at actual homes so you’ll be “hands on”. Your training will conclude with the NHWA Certified Home Watch Professional certification online exam. You will leave Home Watch Boot Camp knowing what you need to do. And THAT is why Home Watch Boot Camp!
