Your Partner for Commercial Property Watch & Wait Services in NoVA.

We have designed a suite of services for commercial clients who have traditionally looked to commercial property management companies in Northern Va.   The Golden Rule Team offers property watching and monitoring services that are truly proactive.

The Golden Rule approach uses environmental sensor technology that monitors 24/7, paired with the eyes and ears of our trained team members who visit the property regularly.  Together, technology and people provide a very comprehensive model for preventing problems from becoming disasters. Our team also provides a time and GPS stamped report with photos and comments after every site visit.

Example clients that would benefit include:

  • Banks and lending institutions carrying inventories of vacant properties
    • By going to the property regularly and monitoring 24/7 via technology we can provide the owner with up to date status on their investment
  • Realtors listing vacant homes
    • Any problem with a listed house or property is detected quickly thereby reducing or eliminating any delay in the sale of that listing
  • Corporate and Temporary Housing
    • Wait services for cable/internet installation, appliance delivery, vendors, contractors
    • Apartment/property walk through, lock box installation,
  • Property owners of short term rental properties (e.g., VRBO, Airbnb)
    • We make sure property is up to the owner’s expectations

Our sensors monitor for changes in temperature or humidity, power failure and for the detection of water leaks.  The Golden Rule Team and 24 hour operations center are notified of any detection which may indicate a problem with HVAC , an issue with power or a broken water pipe.     We also have other sensors – tell us what you need and what you want to monitor!

The Golden Rule Difference

Golden Rule’s Hi-Tech Hi-Touch System combined with our concierge services helps protect your property investment, provides your clients with peace of mind while the property is vacant, and gives you time back in your day to work on building your business.


Pricing for professional Golden Rule Commercial Property Watch Services depends on the size of your property, the number of water zones (bathrooms, kitchens, etc.), any unique features requiring special attention, and the type and number of sensors needed for monitoring.

Concierge services are based on an hourly rate and the type of service being performed. These are established during our no-fee consultation so that you can clearly understand the services that you will receive.
