Beach Time Home Watch of Boynton Beach, FL, earns accreditation from the NHWA!

Jack Luber
Executive Director


Beach Time Home Watch of Boynton Beach, Florida, has earned Accredited Member status from the NHWA.

Owners Mike and Cathy Strine were born and raised in the Midwest. Mike is from Northeast Ohio, and Cathy is from Northwest Pennsylvania.

Mike is a career law enforcement officer, with more than 30 years of experience between Ohio and Florida. As a municipal police officer and a road patrol deputy sheriff, he’s seen it all! While serving as a police officer in Ohio, Mike also cross-certified as a firefighter and EMT-A. He is a Renaissance man: While in Ohio, Mike operated service-related businesses, including a VCR repair shop, video store, tanning salon, free-weights gym, ice cream parlor, and a pizza shop.

Cathy’s career as an executive administrative assistant to the president of a financial firm in Ohio, and then as a Director of Finance and Administration for the VP/GM of a Florida national security company, honed her leadership skills, with meticulous attention to detail. Today, she also owns and operates a successful business enterprise as a virtual assistant.

Having endured the cold weather of Ohio for most of their lives, Mike and Cathy moved to sunny Southeast Florida in 2005–just in time to experience Hurricane Wilma and seeing the devastation first hand, living it, and working through it. Wanting to return to the business world in a profession that builds on his three decades of service to others, the Home Watch industry was the perfect fit, and Beach Time Home Watch was born. Mike’s motto is, “I Will Watch It, So You Can Leave It.”

The service offers peace of mind to clients by performing visual inspections weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly. Mike uses a state-of-the-art, GPS-enabled, real-time reporting system. To grow the business, Mike is striving to improve the service continually for clients.

Mike and Cathy have three grown sons and brand-new twin grandchildren, a boy and a girl. Their hobbies include photography, beachcombing, exploring the natural scrub areas locally, and raising their 85-pound Doberman (site security), 10-pound Minpin (who’s in charge), and a 13-pound cat.
