ABOUT US

The founders of Golden Rule Home Watch & Concierge have over 30 years of experience in real estate, project management and information technology professional services. In 2017, they realized there was an opportunity to innovate the way that home watch services were provided by combining state-of-the-art environmental sensor technology with scheduled home visits. Home Watch is an an alternative to what property management companies in the Washington DC metro area offer.  Golden Rule Home Watch & Concierge clients have great peace of mind knowing their home is being monitored 24/7, and that professionally trained, tested and trusted staff are checking and watching over their homes.

OUR PEOPLE

Our “wanna be” comedian!

Dave is passionate about two things: customer service and technology. He has spent his career working with professional services companies providing clients exceptional services based on advanced technologies, and he has received commendations, awards and even international recognition for his work. His entrepreneurial spirit led him to be part of a number of business start-ups and to create and run his own business and technology consulting firm for 15 years.

He leveraged all of that passion and experience to create the new standard in professional home watch, the Hi-Tech Hi-Touch Home Watch System℠. He is excited to offer this approach through Golden Rule Home Watch & Concierge and to provide his clients with the absolute best services in the home watch and concierge industry.

She used her exceptional organization, management and planning skills to run all administrative operations for a business and technology consultancy for 15 years.

Our movie quote guru!

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 enterprise software. Over the next 20 years (Y2K, the Internet boom, the rise of the Cloud, Customer Relationship Management, Big Data and the exponential growth of computer viruses and malware) he held various positions with Computer Associates, BEA Systems, Oracle and within the cyber security space working with many of the largest enterprise customers in the Mid-Atlantic region.

With an abundance of experience in sales, information technology, cyber security 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 home watch services that would benefit 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 owners, Dan and the other founders created Golden Rule Home Watch & Concierge to provide the most innovative services in the home watch and concierge industry. 

Our purveyor of positive energy!

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.

GIVING BACK

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 to the community 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 gives back to the community we serve.  Our focus is to help those who struggle with having the basic necessities of life – food and shelter.
