Crown Home Watch of Lakewood Ranch, Florida, has earned Accredited Member status from the NHWA.

In 2018, owners Pete and Taryn Wells Taryn left their home in California and traveled extensively around Europe and the United States before opting for a change of pace in beautiful Lakewood Ranch. Over the decades, Pete and Taryn have gained a wide range of experience managing properties through home ownership, home 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. Pete and Taryn thoroughly understand their clients’ concerns as absentee homeowners, as they have already walked in their shoes.

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. Their clients can feel completely 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.

When not working with Crown’s clients, Taryn enjoys scouring her cookbooks to find new recipes for the delight of both family and friends. Pete can be found gardening or fishing for bass behind their home. His decades in the perfect climate of Northern California made him an expert at barbecuing. Pete and Taryn enjoy riding their e-bikes together. Taryn and Pete have been married for forty years. They have one son, Britton, who also lives in the area.

As always, I wish you

Much success,
