Welcome, Eastern NC Home Watch of Arapahoe, NC, to the NHWA!​

Jim and Shanda Maddox

Eastern NC Home Watch of Arapahoe, North Carolina, has earned accreditation from the NHWA.

Owners Jim and Shanda Maddox come from diverse professional backgrounds. Jim spent over 25 years in ministry at a large church, while Shanda built a successful career in banking as a Regional Director. Seeking a career they could share, they transitioned to a senior living company. Their collaboration proved mutually beneficial, earning them the title of Managers of the Year in 2015.

In 2021, the Maddoxes purchased land on the beautiful Pamlico River in Arapahoe, a place Shanda describes as her happiest. Their days are marked by stunning sunrises and sunsets. Many of their neighbors, however, only reside there part-time, prompting them to frequently ask Jim and Shanda to “keep a check on things.” This involved setting mouse traps, sending out important mail, checking for frozen pipes, and watering flowers.

With their senior living company ceasing to build new communities, Shanda faced the prospect of finding a new role within the company or leaving altogether. As they explored options, they discovered Home Watch, a field aligning perfectly with their previous professional and personal experiences. Realizing this was their future path, Shanda and Jim knew it was crucial to align with the NHWA.

Shanda is a graduate of the NHWA’s Home Watch Boot Camp and has earned the designation of Certified Home Watch Professional (CHWP), which places her among the elite Home Watch providers in the industry, showcasing her commitment to excellence.

Jim and Shanda have been married since November of 2011. This wasn’t the first marriage for either of them, and they brought five children along with them. Remarkably, their two sons are the same age, and Jim’s twin daughters are the same age as Shanda’s daughter. They are all now responsible adults, giving Jim and Shanda 11 amazing grandchildren.

Eastern NC Home Watch serves the Eastern North Carolina counties of Pamlico, Craven, Carteret, Beaufort, and Hyde, including Oriental, Arapahoe, New Bern, Havelock, and Morehead. You can reach them at (252) 526-7876 or atcontact@easternnchomewatch.com. Learn more from their website, at https://easternnchomewatch.com.

Welcome, Jim and Shanda!

As always, I wish you

Much success,


Jack Luber
