Island Overlook Home Watch

Owning more than one home is something that you have worked hard to obtain. Additional residences represent substantial investments that you want to protect, but not being on site to monitor the regular operations and/or emergencies that come up can cause tremendous stress and anxiety. It can also be very costly.

Island Overlook Home Watch Services gives you peace of mind by serving as your eyes and ears while you are away for days, weeks, or months. I am bonded and insured and will care for your home/condo and possessions in a professional, thorough, and respectful manner with your best interest in mind. We check the interior and exterior of your home or condo, as well as the surrounding grounds, so obvious issues or concerns that may arise while you are away can be addressed quickly. Each visit by Island Overlook will be followed with a report of the findings. We use the latest  technology and Home Watch software to pass along pertinent information to you directly from your home, putting your mind at ease no matter how far away you are!

Weekly and bi-weekly services are available, and the inspection list can be tailored to meet your needs. Weekly inspections are recommended since a small issue can quickly become a major, costly problem. Roof leaks, plumbing/heating/air conditioning, rodent and insect infestation, odors, vandalism or forced entry can occur at any time. Additionally, mold and mildew can grow quickly resulting in expensive damage and potentially serious health hazards, if not discovered in a timely manner. Each winter, nor’easter snow and wind storms lead to power outages, frozen pipes, and fallen tree limbs in southern Rhode Island.  All which can wreak havoc on an unoccupied home.

Owned and operated by Kevin Buck, a Newport County resident for over 50 years, Island Overlook proudly serves homeowners in Newport, Jamestown, Middletown, Portsmouth, Bristol, Tiverton, and Little Compton.

I look forward to meeting with you at your home/condo in person or online to explain available home watch services. Please contact me for an initial consultation.

“I am a local Realtor with RE/MAX Professionals of Newport. I have been in the Real Estate Business since 1985. I handle rentals and sales of all types. I do not do property/home watch therefore I am always looking for a reliable and responsive property/home watch company or person to handle my clients properties.  I’ve had many experiences with management companies ranging from  excellent to poor. I recently had the pleasure of working with Kevin Buck who is the owner of  Island Overlook Home Watch. Kevin was hands on with every issue that came up with the property while it was being rented and also in the owners absence. He is very available, responsive, courteous, helpful and willing to do anything it takes to make sure the property is functioning, secure and well watched over. He is an excellent problem solver and great to work with. I highly recommend Kevin and his company if you are looking to hire a property/home watch specialist. I had a very positive experience and I will recommend him to my clients in the future.”

Island Overlook Home Watch literally saved our home on Aquidneck Island.  The gas line to our home was shut off and the heat went out during a period of bitter cold in the middle of winter.  Island Overlook discovered the problem and rapidly responded by bringing electric heaters into our home, ensuring that our pipes did not freeze. Having Island Overlook monitoring our home provides us with great peace of mind when we are not there. Thank you Island Overlook!
