Big Island Property Monitoring Consultants of Waikoloa, HI, earns third-year accreditation from the NHWA!
Owners Debbie Albrecht and David Kelly were inspired to start a Home Watch company by their own experience of owning a vacation home in Hawaii before making the move from Colorado. Through the years, they spent many hours renovating their homes, so they couldn’t help but wonder what the condition of one property was while spending time at the other. While they were fortunate enough to not have any real issues, there were minor things that created stress in their lives, which could have been resolved easily with a service like the one they provide. As permanent residents, Debbie and Dave often hear the same concerns from seasonal visitors, and that’s what encouraged them to establish Big Island PMC.
Dave is a Master Plumber and has been in the field for over 35 years. He is experience is in all areas of plumbing: construction, renovation, repair, and service. He’s also worked for large mechanical companies and was the superintendent of many commercial projects, including the renovation of the Air Force Academy. He’s knows there are more challenges when it comes to plumbing in a tropical paradise than one would imagine. While digging through lava is obviously the first, the next could be chasing a leak down a never-ending pipe, slowly eroding from the salt-water air or cracked from an earthquake.
Debbie worked in the financial industry for 20 years. She was a Financial Crimes Consultant, specializing in fraud prevention and identity theft investigation. This career gave her a heightened awareness of privacy and confidentiality and their importance when creating a relationship and establishing trust with homeowners. Debbie’s organizational skills and attention to detail keep the business running efficiently.
When they’re not busy working, Debbie and Dave take time to appreciate their beautiful Island, which they now get to call home. They enjoy paddle-boarding, snorkeling, and exploring the Island by foot or riding motorcycles. Spending time with friends and family is the best experience of living where they do.
