Crown Home Watch of Lakewood Ranch, Florida, has earned accreditation from the NHWA for the second year.

In 2018, owners Pete and Taryn Wells left their home in California and traveled around Europe and the U.S. before moving to Lakewood Ranch. Over the decades, Pete and Taryn have gained a wide range of experience managing properties through home ownership, remodeling, and managing rentals in multiple states. They currently own several rental properties in Florida and are very familiar with the challenges faced by absentee owners.

What started as a part-time, voluntary service taking care of their neighbors’ winter homes has evolved into a top-notch service company. After Hurricane Ian and the valuable lessons learned in its aftermath, Pete and Taryn made the decision to formalize their Home Watch business to protect both themselves and their clients. Seeing a need, they also added both concierge services and senior assist services to their portfolio to better serve their clients.

Pete and Taryn enthusiastically endorse the NHWA’s Code of Ethics and Mission Statement. Taryn has earned the designation of Certified Home Watch Professional from the NHWA, placing her among the elite Home Watch providers in the industry. The CHWP designation shows her commitment to providing excellent service to her clients.

Pete and Taryn’s clients can feel comfortable when Crown Home Watch enters their home. They are both graduates of the Citizens Law Enforcement Academy for the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office. They proudly support and are honorary members of the Florida Sheriff’s Association.

Pete is originally from Wallasey, England. As a kid, he used to look out across the River Mersey to the Irish Sea and dream of what lay over the horizon—America! His dream came true in 1980, when he landed in Los Angeles. He made his way up to the San Francisco Bay Area, where he spent almost 40 years. Taryn is from the Central Coast of California. She became one of the youngest-ever licensed pilots, earning her wings on her 17th birthday. She was a founding member of the International Organization of Women Pilots. Taryn has earned a bachelor’s and master’s degree in Business.
