Florida Keys Home Watch
We are Michael & Zosia Klimpl. We have lived in the Islamorada, Florida Keys community for 18 years. After living through four hurricanes, including the devastation and heartbreak created by Hurricane Irma in September of 2017, ourselves having significant damages to our property, we heard of many issues from friends and neighbors with extensive damages:
- Time period between Hurricane and when the owner was able to come was so long that mold, pests, corrosion, and other damages became much worse and costly during that period.
- Difficulty getting insurance claims approved – Insurance companies may require documented proof that your property is being watched when you are away for extended periods of time
- Contractor and materials price gouging.
- Owners not able to meet contractors when scheduled.
- Scheduling contractors and service repairmen on a timely bases.
- Poor quality workmanship and no shows.
Before & after each of these storms, we would receive many calls from our part time resident friends and neighbors asking us to check their homes security before a major storm and report any damages after, which were especially numerous and extensive after Irma!
We concluded that there is a need for a professional, trustworthy Home Watch Service here in Islamorada and the Upper Florida Keys to keep an eye on our part time owners properties and give them Peace of Mind that their homes are safe, everything is functioning properly, and to help them get any damages or repairs expedited efficiently, on a timely bases. We decided to begin Keyswatch Residential Services.
Zosia is born and educated in Krakow, Poland. She has been monitoring private part time owner’s residences since we moved to Tavernier Key in Islamorada. Her strong work ethic and impeccable integrity have made her a valuable asset to her clients. Her experience working on-site have exposed her to many of the issues above that can happen to your home when you are not here. She has learned how to identify these issues. Additionally, her experience working with clients to communicate with their contractors and vendors on their behalf have given her the expertise to give you the quality service you expect.
Michael, from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, is a graduate of Nene College in Northampton, England in the field of Leather Technology. He is a second generation leather tanner who worked in the American Leather Industry as a Plant Manager, Technical Manager and later as a Technical Sales Representative for a major specialty chemical and dye company for almost 20 years. The leather industry has since migrated out of the US forcing him to make a change. He moved to Tavernier in the Florida Keys in 2001 and has become the trusted manager for a successful 10000 sq/ft retail business here in the Keys. His strong business management and communication skills are key to giving you the Home Watch Services we provide, professionally and efficiently.
