ON THE MOVE
Eyes on Site 4 U has earned accreditation from the National Home Watch Association. The association was formed in 2009 in order to establish and maintain the highest industry standards for “Home Watch” and absentee homeowner services, throughout the United States and Canada. Home Watch is a visual inspection of a home or property, looking for obvious issues, functioning as a service that “keeps an eye on things” at a vacation or primary home, while the owners are not in residence. Based in Kingsville, Eyes on Site 4 U, Owner and Director Nick Diniro, offers over 30 years’ experience in the construction industry as a business owner, master plumber, and general contractor of new construction and renovations. More than three years ago he partnered with Tasha Slater (a Windsor area REALTOR for over 15 years), to establish the company. They identified a need within Slater’s clientele base (now through Jump Realty) who had no-one they could trust to watch their homes while away. It has been the perfect marriage between Diniro’s decades in construction and the requirement for consumers to have a trusted, skilled, and reliable source to watch their homes. Eyes on Site 4 U eliminates the stress and worry for their clients by protecting their single largest investment. Bonded and insured, Eyes on Site 4 U serves Windsor and all of Essex County.
