Jack Luber

Executive Director – National Home Watch Association
President – Coastal Carolina Home Watch
Murrells Inlet, SC

Jack Luber is the President and CEO of Coastal Carolina Home Watch, which operates in the Myrtle Beach and Charleston areas of South Carolina. Before moving permanently from the New Jersey Shore, Jack purchased a condo in the Myrtle Beach area, only to discover an obvious need for someone to look out for his best interests in his absence.

Jack’s entrepreneurial spirit and marketing background were the impetus for starting the only Home Watch business in the Myrtle Beach area in 2005. In 2012, he opened his second location in the Greater Charleston Area. Since its inception, Coastal Carolina Home Watch has grown to become a thriving, multi-faceted business.

JP Lalondejp_rd

Las Vegas, NV

A native of Montreal, Canada, JP Lalonde spent 32 years in the automotive manufacturing industry. JP’s career took him and his family from Canada to Michigan, Kentucky, and finally to Nevada. He retired early as Manufacturing Engineering Director, but not before gaining experience in everything from IT to environmental control and energy management. Soon after retiring, JP moved his family to Las Vegas and quickly became involved in his homeowners association and realized the need for reliable Home Watch services.

JP and Home Watcher LV take the NHWA accreditation very seriously, because it helps protect consumers from “sketchy and under- or uninsured” companies in his area. JP’s experience and commitment to his clients are evident when you speak with him.
