As owner Dana Salo likes to point out, unoccupied homes are the breeding grounds for trouble. If your home sits unoccupied, it is not a question of “if something will happen,” but instead, “when something will happen.” He says, “Fate does not discriminate. Whether you own a pricey oceanfront home or something more modest, whether your home is brand new or centuries old, chances are something will go wrong. Going away for the winter and just hoping for the best is not a good plan. In fact, it is not a plan at all.”
Salo Home Watch is ready to aid in providing peace of mind to area homeowners on Cape Ann. During the recent Home Watch season (the winter of 2018-2019), Salo Home Watch experienced five saves. A save is a situation where, if they were not watching over the client’s home, their client would have experienced a big mess and an expensive clean-up.
Dana is a 1983 graduate of Northeastern University, College of Criminal Justice. He is the father of two wonderful young daughters. Dana is a thirty-five-year letter carrier with USPS. He began Salo Home Watch in August 2009, after a retired doctor on his mail route asked him to watch over his home while he was away. After counting the number of vacation homes on his mail route, a business idea took root.
After Dana’s planned retirement from the USPS in August 2019, his plan calls for sharp growth and taking the business to new heights.
Dana sits on the NHWA’s Advisory Board. He also is a Certified Home Watch Professional and a Home Watch Boot Camp instructor. Dana always joins us at our North American Conferences, and this year was no exception; we enjoyed spending time with him in Fort Myers, Florida, earlier this month.
Salo Home Watch serves all of Cape Ann, including Rockport, Gloucester, Essex, and Manchester-by-the-Sea. You can reach Dana at (978) 660-2372 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Learn more at their website, www.salohomewatch.com.
As always, I wish you
