Realtor & Broker Services


Selling a seasonal home to a second home buyer can be difficult.  By having a local Home Watch Company to trust who could watch over and facilitate all the homes needs the Client could buy with confidence knowing it does not need to be a fearful burden. Buyers and Investors want to invest in our local Real Estate market but they don't know who will care for their property in their absence.  I Watch 4 You, LLC fills that void by providing professional, reliable, and reputable Home Watch Services.  In turn, allowing Realtors and Real Estate Companies these benefits:

 

  1. Realtor support for maintenance/monitoring while on market
  2. More time to focus on selling not on overseeing property
  3. Your partner to provide Home Watch Services while on the market as insurance policies for vacant and vacation homes generally have a number of coverage exclusions for perils that are typically covered in standard primary residence policy
  4. Lessening anxiety so client's can purchase with confidence - knowing we are there to watch and report locally for any home issues 
  5. Reduce exposure - we are professionally trained, bonded and properly insured and capable of limiting your exposure to potential home issues
  6. Peace -of- mind knowing your clients will have a reputable Home Watch Company protecting their new seasonal home purchase - They typically get a home warranty so why not a Home Watch service, too!
  7. Volume pricing available 


Private Investors & Bank Owned Property Services

 

Some insurance companies require routine inspections while the property is vacant or unoccupied for more than 30 or 60 days (depending on your policy) of the home being vacant.  This is particularly true of vacant property as many insurance providers are reluctant to insure a vacant property...  


If they do and you have no proof the property was being looked after and damages occur, you might not be covered.

  

Therefore, in a homeowners policy, vacancy exclusions will remove coverage for vandalism, building glass breakage, water damage, theft or attempted theft if the damage occurs within 30 or 60 days (depending on your policy) of the home being vacant. Coverage for standard perils such as fire and wind remain intact.  


Home Owner's Association (HOA) Services

 

If you are a Condominium Association or Home Owner's Association (HOA) official in need of a volume pricing for multiple units or have many seasonal residents, please call us to see if we can fulfill your needs.


Remember, we are professionally trained, bonded, and properly insured, (as some of of our competitors are not) and we are officially established with the State of Arizona as a corporation. These are the guidelines that most insurance companies have established to allow us to fulfill your obligation to provide Home Watch services.


Our prices are reasonable and competitive, and our services can be customized to whatever your insurance company coverage is demanding.  Plus we can guarantee that we are there providing services with our GPS reporting software!

FAQ's

image23

I can hire my friend or neighbor to watch over my seasonal residence.

Can you expect them to visit on a regular schedule and to document each visit for Insurance purposes?  What if damage occurs on their watch? Ask yourself if your friendship could be in jeopardy or even be lost!

What is the cost to have a Home Watch Service?

That is a very valid question but service varies based on what you need as a client.  Its not a one type fits all scenario but we feel we are competitive based on the value of our services and credentials of being professionally trained.  

I will just take my chances that's why I have insurance!

Did you know that if you leave your seasonal residence for several weeks or months and damages occur, its possible that your insurance carrier might ask for proof that it was being looked after.  If you cannot prove it was being looked after, they might consider you negligent and deny your claim.  Now might be the time to inquire with your Agent.  Even better, inquire with them to see if they offer savings for having a Home Watch service...

What's the frequency of home watch visits?

It's our best practice to visit the property weekly, bi-weekly or more frequently.  We don't offer a monthly service.  Be concerned if its offered as that's too long and could affect your homeowners insurance. Now might be a good time to review with your Insurance Agent.  Ask if they provide discounts for having a professional Home Watch service...

Are you licensed, insured, background checked, and bonded?

Yes, with one exception and one that you need to understand.  There is no license yet for Home Watching, so if a company states they are licensed beware and inquire about their license.  However, we are a registered LLC and carry extensive insurance of $2 million in general liability and $4 million aggregate. We also are covered to drive vehicles as we have clients that have exotic cars.  We are background checked by a 3rd Party organization and carry a surety bond of $10K. We are happy to provide our company credentials and you should be asking all Home Watch providers for this and a copy of their Certificate of Insurance.

Why should I hire you?

Not only do we have a vested interest in our business by having a LLC and a higher level of insurance.  We also have invested in getting professional training and use best of breed Home Watch software to provide exceptional Home Watch visits and reporting.  We are not a simple walk through service!  This is value to you our potential Client, knowing you have a professional company working on monitoring one of your largest assets!

Professional Background

I Watch 4 You, LLC is owned and operated by Kurt Gruendler who is a 20 plus year resident of Scottsdale Arizona. 


Kurt has had an interest in Real Estate for many years. He saw an opportunity to help Arizona home owners by forming I Watch 4 You, LLC which provides Home Watch and premiere concierge services to the Valley of the Sun’s seasonal residents. Kurt took this role very serious and flew to Sarasota, FL to attend a professional training class in order to provide his clients with an exceptional Home Watch Service.  Often times you will see Home Watchers entering this industry with little or no credentials.  He is both professionally trained & background checked by Your Home Watch Professionals and graduate of their training program.  He is also Founding Member of the International Home Watch Alliance and is the Arizona lead for this group.

  

Kurt moved to Scottsdale in the early 90’s to attend Arizona State University, WP Carey School of Business. Kurt worked full-time while attending and pursuing his degree in Marketing from ASU and graduated in 1996. After graduating he began his career in Sales & Marketing within the High-Tech industry. During his 20-year tenure within the High-Tech industry he worked for several Fortune 500 companies. Never feeling completely fulfilled, Kurt felt he needed yet another challenge and became an Entrepreneur!

 

On a personal level, Kurt has been married for over 14 years to his Canadian wife. She moved to Scottsdale for a career opportunity in healthcare, they met each other shortly after, and they became best friends.  They are blessed with a Daughter and a Maltipoo, named Ginger.  Being a business owner provides Kurt the flexibility to assist his aging mother, who is a stage 4 cancer survivor and seasonal resident of neighboring Fountain Hills, Arizona. Kurt is dedicated to helping his family and providing the best service to his clients!
