Gulf Coast Home Watch of Southwest Florida, of Port Charlotte, FL, earns accreditation from the NHWA!
Owners Paul and Brenda Smich are starting their Home Watch business as they are beginning the next chapter of their lives.
Paul moved from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, to Sumter County in 1987, where he began his law enforcement career. Promoted through the ranks with the State of Florida, Paul met Brenda and they married in 1997. He began his employment with the Lee County Sheriff’s Office in 2009 and is still there. He will mandatorily fully retire in December.
Brenda moved from Syracuse, New York, to Charlotte County and resided there for the majority of her adult life. She started her career in 1989 with the Florida Department of Corrections and held many positions, leading to her current position as Senior Classification Officer.
Due to each of them having 30 years of exemplary service in law enforcement, Paul and Brenda both have a desire to continue to serve their community. They have been homeowners since 1998 in Charlotte County and understand all aspects of what can go wrong with an unattended residence.
Paul and Brenda have a large family, consisting of five children, ranging in age from 22 to 33. They are proud that all of their children are productive members of society. They also have seven grandchildren.
