Barbara and George Martinez


GMan Home Watch of Punta Gorda, of Punta Gorda, Florida, has earned accreditation from the NHWA for the sixth year.

Owners Jorge (“George”) and Barbara Martinez followed their careers in the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) by moving to Florida, which had always been their retirement dream location.  Over the years, they had visited various parts of the state before discovering Southwest Florida. George and Barbara fell in love with the sunny weather, friendly residents, and the numerous educational and recreational activities the region has to offer. They first settled in Venice and eventually moved to Punta Gorda. 

George and Barbara know the wonders of owning a vacation home. They also know the burdens of wondering from afar how well your home has weathered a recent storm. Worse yet, they know what it’s like to return to your piece of paradise only to find damage due to broken pipes or air-conditioning units.

Combining their personal experiences with their dedication to serving and protecting the public is where the idea of GMan Home Watch got its start. The name “GMan” is a play on the slang term for FBI Special Agents dating back to the 1930s.

George and Barbara first established GMan Home Watch in Venice, where it quickly became a prominent go-to business. They received numerous accolades and were voted the “2020 Neighborhood Favorites – Best Professional Service” by subscribers to  That business was sold and will continue to operate under the name GMan Home Watch Sarasota. George and Barbara now bring their expertise, professionalism, and dependability to Punta Gorda. 

George has earned the designation of Certified Home Watch Professional from the NHWA, making him one of the elite Home Watch providers in the industry. The CHWP designation shows his commitment to providing excellent service to his clients.

They say, “Just remember: when you are away, you need to know that GMan is on the scene.”
