Home Sitters, Inc., of Osterville, MA, earns eighth-year accreditation from the NHWA!
Home Sitters, Inc., of Osterville, Massachusetts, has earned accreditation from the NHWA for the eighth year. Owner Pete Barratini is one of my favorite people. He has been to most of our conferences, and he always adds his take and humor to many of the topics discussed. Pete’s commitment to the Home Watch industry and the NHWA is one of the reasons that Home Sitters is always on the cutting edge.
Pete and his wife, Janet, began caretaking on Cape Cod in 1985. They started Home Sitters in 1998, when they realized that it should be a full-time occupation. Pete’s background working in security and his membership in the Barnstable Citizens Police Academy reinforced his knowledge of just how vulnerable vacant homes on the Cape are. Add to that the fact that an empty home brings its own set of problems, and Pete and Janet knew what their future held in store.
While Pete is the one out in the field, Janet runs the office and tells Pete what to do. Janet is a multi-generational Cape Codder and a graduate of Bryant University. They have been married for 30 years and have four children.
Home Sitters, Inc., is a member of the Cape Cod Chamber of Commerce and serves Barnstable, Falmouth, Sandwich, Brewster, Chatham, Harwich, and Mashpee. They can be reached at (508) 428-4471 or at firstname.lastname@example.org. Learn more at their website, www.CapeHomeSitters.com.
Congratulations, Pete and Janet!
