The Golden Rule

We Treat others the way we want to be treated.
Plain – Simple – Always


Our success is determined by
how many clients we serve and
how well we serve each of them.


Our client relationships are built
on honesty – courageously speaking the truth, and
always doing what is right to create long-term trust.


Our worth is measured
by giving more to our clients in value
than we take in payment.


Our reputation is guarded
by integrity – always behaving professionally and ethically
towards our clients, employees, and the community.


Our offerings are forward
thinking – leveraging advances in technology
and service to provide our clients with peace of mind.


Golden Rule Home Watch & Concierge was founded on the principals of honesty and integrity.  We treat our clients as we want to be treated – and we have high standards!

With these values always front and center, our goal is to provide needed and useful home watch and concierge services that give our clients great peace of mind and more time back in their day.


Dan began his career as a registered pharmacist in Western Pennsylvania. Moving to Northern Virginia in 1998, he changed fields completely and started what was to become a very successful career in software. Over the next 20 years (Y2K, the Internet, the rise of the Cloud, CRM, Big Data and the exponential growth of computer viruses and malware) he held various positions within the enterprise software industry ultimately settling into the fast moving world of cyber security/cyber threat intelligence space.  Dan had the opportunity of working with many of the largest enterprise customers in the Mid-Atlantic region.

With an abundance of experience in sales, information technology, cyber security, home repair and the importance of building strong client relationships, it was time to put all of that knowledge to work to help others. In 2017, Dan envisioned services that would benefit homeowners in the Northern Virginia/Washington metro area.  Developing the Hi-Tech Hi-Touch Home Watch System℠ and CarWatch℠ approaches to monitoring homes and automobiles for their absentee owners, Dan co-founded Golden Rule Home Watch & Concierge to provide innovative home watch services in Northern Virginia. 

A native of Western Pennsylvania, Amy moved to the Northern Virginia area in 2002. She enjoys the amazing opportunities that living in the Washington, D.C. metro area offer her family. With a degree in nursing from the University of Pittsburgh, Amy has worked extensively within the healthcare system. Working with informatics and process improvement was a perfect match for Amy’s skills. She embraces the usefulness and possibility of technology, but understands that providing client services needs to be based upon the wants and desires of the individual. Only by thoroughly listening and seeking to understand can a solution be found.

Bringing this mind set to Golden Rule Home Watch & Concierge, Amy has the goal of providing superior service to every client. Fundamental to establishing a strong relationship is making sure that our clients are well educated and fully aware of every aspect of the services that Golden Rule provides. When clients are informed and confident, their interactions with Golden Rule will result in the favorable outcomes of improved peace of mind and time back in their day.


It is our desire to live out the Golden Rule in all areas of our life.  We believe that as members of a community we should give back as much as we receive.  Since making our home in Northern Virginia twenty years ago, we have volunteered our time and resources to our children’s schools, neighborhood associations, churches, and various non-profit organizations such as Generosity Feeds, Cornerstones, Central Union Mission, Western Fairfax Christian Ministries and Northern Virginia Human Trafficking Initiative.

At Golden Rule, one of our priorities is to ensure that our company is able to give back to the community that we serve.  One of our key goals is to help those who struggle with having the basic necessities of life – food and shelter.
