Happy Home Watch of Sarasota of Sarasota, FL, earns second-year accreditation from the NHWA!

Katie Stricker


Happy Home Watch of Sarasota, of Sarasota, Florida, has earned accreditation from the NHWA for the second year.

Originally from Ohio, owner Katie Stricker visited Siesta Key since she was a baby and her grandparents spent their winters on the Key. When she was old enough to realize this area could be her home, Katie says, “Ohio had no hope!” Southwest Florida has indeed been Katie’s home since 2000, and Sarasota specifically, since 2008, when she moved there to finish her Master’s degree in Adult Education. That degree never got put to use. O’Leary’s Tiki Bar was a side job that beat out every career she was looking at.

Katie became interested in the Home Watch industry when she realized how many of her friends’ homes she was checking on when they were away. She saw so many things that can happen to an unoccupied home, from mold infestations to vandalism. Katie decided to make it official, and Happy Home Watch of Sarasota was formed. Happy Home Watch is “happily here for your home.”

Katie has earned the designation of Certified Home Watch Professional and has graduated from the NHWA’s Home Watch Boot Camp, making her one of the elite Home Watch providers in the industry. The CHWP designation and Home Watch Boot Camp training show Katie’s commitment to providing excellent service to her clients.

I got to meet with Katie to talk about Home Watch while on my Florida tour in June.

Happy Home Watch of Sarasota serves Sarasota out to the Interstate, Siesta Key, Osprey, Casey Key, Nokomis, and Venice. You can reach Katie at (941) 320-2541 or at  happyhomewatchofsarasota@gmail.com. Learn more from her website, at www.happyhomewatchofsarasota.com.

Congratulations, Katie!

As always, I wish you

Much success,

Jack Luber
Executive Director
