and look when you can't




This is what it is all about. Your investment and making sure that investment is protected, even though you may be hundreds of miles away. Eric visits your property at least once a week every week year-round.


Do you ever wonder if the last vendor, cleaning team or guest closed and locked the doors and windows on their way out? People with bad intent looking to get into a property are not going to spend a lot of time searching for a way in — they will do a quick test on easily accessible doors and windows, especially those out of sight from vigilant eyes. We offer rental property security and will check all doors and windows on a weekly basis to ensure they are secure. If you have work scheduled on the property, a special check can be arranged to make sure the vendors have secured things.

Is your rental property safe for you, your family, or guests to enjoy? The sun and salt can ruin decks and outside furniture, and the normal wear-and-tear can make things unsafe. Are your smoke & CO detectors working? Are your fire extinguishers current? Be it a nail pop or a wobbly deck railing, we can help find & address any occupant safety issues.

Is your OBX property sound? In good shape on the inside and outside? We see and hear potential problems with the structure and mechanicals. Wood rots, siding gets damaged, ceilings, windows & doors leak and cause damage that may be hard to detect until a real problem comes up. Excessive cracks in the concrete slab or driveway? Water that seems to appear from nowhere? We have the skills & experience to find, diagnose and work with you on a resolution

pre/post storm checks

Sometimes issues with your property need more than just a quick fix. Plumbing issues; electrical issues; storm damage issues and the whole range of other bad stuff that can happen both in-season and out-season. The below services are offered at an affordable rate to Contract Customers.
Rapid Response to Guest Issues

At no additional charge, we will do pre-, during (as conditions permit) and post-storm event checks and let you know immediately if we find something that needs quick attention. During Severe Weather Events, Scheduled Services may be postponed so that we can visit every one of our customer properties to check on risks, issues & damages and get corrective work started.

Our Pre-listing service includes:
A physical inspection – full detailed list.
Diagnostics of any issues found – what’s causing the problem?
Assistance in getting any issues identified corrected before a buyer’s pre-closing inspection.

Why Do This?
Many property owners live elsewhere and, other than a few weeks each year, don’t have an opportunity to assess the condition of their rented properties. Between Corolla’s weather & the “wear & tear” of the rental season, many risks to the property or guests could remain hidden until a buyer’s inspection.

With the availability of listed properties in Corolla, a buyer’s inspection could derail an offer if major items are found and the buyers just don’t want to deal with it. And, the pre-close inspection may reveal issues that will take time given the availability of vendors) to diagnose and repair.

As a Non-Certified inspector (for a reason!), we can do things the buyer’s Inspector can’t or won’t. We will move things. We will probe. With your permission, we will go into locked spaces.

This service is designed to give sellers a chance to learn about, understand and correct any issues that might stall a close.

Let’s be honest. As an owner working with a Property Management firm, you’ve received bills for things you never knew about. Or received bills – with no detail – saying work was done at your place at some point in the past. Then you start the process of trying to understand what happened and what was done, by whom, to correct the issue.

We offer a First Alert Service under which, with your direction to the PM, any issues reported by housekeeping, inspectors or guests first get looked at by Eyes & Ears to understand the issue. We will assess, diagnose, and engage vendors at your direction as needed to fix the issue if we cannot do it.

No more surprises. No more mystery bills. All it takes is for you to direct your PM to send all issues to us in the form of a written work order. 

We Protect Your Investment.
