East Texas Home Watch of Athens, TX, earns Accredited Member status from the NHWA!​

Doug Browning


East Texas Home Watch of Athens, Texas, has earned Accredited Member status from the NHWA.

Owner Doug Browning has been involved in real estate, property management, construction, and insurance adjusting for over 20 years. Beginning in 1996, Doug specialized in investment properties and residential remodels; he bought and sold more than 100 properties each year until 2007, when he began working in personal and commercial lines and catastrophe insurance adjusting. His insurance adjusting also allowed him to work alongside FEMA/Homeland Security and their contracts after catastrophes. For a period of time, Doug co-owned a roofing company in Richardson, Texas, prior to moving to Athens.

Doug’s interest in Home Watch came about with the ice storm of February, 2021. Most of Doug’s neighbors are absentee, and while they were dealing with their primary properties in the Dallas area, he was helping them out with all of their lake houses and helping them mitigate the damage. With his years of experience, Home Watch is a natural fit.

In 2019, Doug, his wife, Jennifer, and their two sons moved to their almost century-old family property, which includes 300 acres. Doug has served in all aspects of ranch management for the property, as well as timber planning and environmental programs. He was also a Director for The Sportsman Foundation(501c3) and worked closely with Texas Parks and Wildlife for years. 

Doug enjoys going on RV trips with Jennifer and their sons, ages 7 and 10. His other hobbies include building and hunting.

East Texas Home Watch serves Henderson and Kaufman Counties, including Athens, Chandler, Frankston, Malakoff, Mabank, Tool, Gunbarrel City, Trinidad, Log Cabin, Eustace, Payne Springs, and Kemp. You can reach Doug at (903) 600-6737 or at info@easttexashomewatch.com. Learn more from his website, at www.easttexashomewatch.com.

Welcome, Doug!

As always, I wish you

Much success,

Jack Luber
Executive Director
