Naples Home Watch Services

Steve & Sue Hartmann Owners

My name is Steve Hartmann, and with my wife Sue, I own and operate Naples Area Home Watch. I am a native Chicagoan, and graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting from the University of Illinois at Chicago and an MBA from Benedictine University. I spent over 30 years in the information technology sector, working as a consultant, programmer analyst, systems analyst, and project manager. My area of expertise included business analysis, application design and programming, application testing, quality control, and project management. I have worked for software, consulting, manufacturing, service and home-building companies, and moved to Florida to pursue a new career in the Home Watch industry. Sue spent many years in the mortgage industry and 18 years as an office manager in the Chicago suburbs.

We have witnessed the problems that wind, water, mold, and lack of power can cause. This prompted us to open Naples Area Home Watch so homeowners have the peace of mind that their Naples property will be carefully monitored and every issue is dealt with in a timely manner. When regular Home Watch visits are performed, there is considerably less chance of a problem or issue turning into a major incident. Whether you are full or part-time residents, owners who rent their property, or simply travel often and for extended periods of time, we are here to monitor your property and look for any obvious issues.

Our guiding principle is, “Treating your home…like it is our own.”

I am a member of the National Home Watch Association (NHWA) and hold the designation of “Certified Home Watch Professional” from the NHWA. This certification means I have passed background checks, been thoroughly vetted, attended training, use industry best practices, and passed a certification exam. Naples Area Home Watch is an accredited member of the NHWA, we have passed a strict vetting process for consumer complaints or issues and we agree to uphold the highest ethics in the Home Watch industry. Our company is licensed, bonded and insured.  The safety of your property and your peace of mind is our top priority.
