Greetings and salutations!
Salo Home Watch of Rockport, Massachusetts, has earned Accredited Member status in the NHWA for the sixth consecutive year.
Owner Dana Salo started Salo Home Watch in August of 2009. He continues to operate it on a part-time basis, around his full-time job as a 32-year letter carrier with the USPS. One day in February 2009, Dana counted all the vacant, seasonal homes on his mail route and an idea began to form. A retired doctor on his route had asked him to check on his home once a month. During one particularly cold morning, Dana conducted his check and found water pouring out of the garage. The homeowner had neglected to turn off his water before leaving. The homeowner learned a lesson, and Dana’s idea grew legs.
Dana has learned a lot in the ensuing years. One of the most significant and important decisions that Dana made was to join the NHWA as soon as he heard about it. He says the NHWA has contributed greatly to his learning curve and to his income. Dana has also contributed a lot to the NHWA. He has attended all of the NHWA’s Annual North American Conferences and is on our Advisory Board.
Now Dana operates Salo Home Watch with his girlfriend, Alison Callahan. The plan involves building the company upon his retirement from the USPS. Every retiree he has spoken with has encouraged him to stay active and have something to do. What better way to stay active than Home Watch?
In his spare time, Dana enjoys golf, baseball, bicycling, hiking, the beach, and traveling. He also enjoys following his nephew, Ryan, who is a collegiate stand-out in baseball.
Salo Home Watch serves Cape Ann, including Rockport, Gloucester, Essex and Manchester-by-the-Sea. You can reach Dana at (978) 660-2372 or at email@example.com. Visit his website at www.salohomewatch.com.
Congratulations, Dana and Allison!
As always, I wish you
