” Dan Lender of Golden Rule Home Watch (GRHW) was interviewed and selected by us based on the knowledge and professionalism he displayed. We left for a period of two months and quickly realized that we had made the right decision. In addition to being knowledgeable, Dan is detail oriented, trustworthy, and passionate about what he does. Dan visited the property weekly, watered the plants, walked the entire property, and picked up our mail. After each visit Dan emailed us a detailed report that included pictures, comments, and recommendations. Dan also sorted our mail separating junk from important mail and shipped us what appeared to be critical and time sensitive mail. My wife and I travel quite frequently and will always rely on GRHW to watch our home. We highly recommend Golden Rule Home Watch”.

“We are in the process of settling our parents’ estate and until we decided what to do with the house, it was very comforting to know that Dan and his team were going to check on our home regularly and would keep us updated. Water came in to the basement, the hot water tank started to leak, furnace filters and smoke detectors batteries all needed to be addressed. Golden Rule provided our family with great peace of mind during a very difficult time.

“We were so happy to know that Dan and his team were looking after our home while we are traveling. Our hot water tank started to leak and he spotted it before it completely failed and our basement was ruined. Dan contacted us right away, scheduled and met a plumber at our home and made sure that the job was finished. He then sent us photos and a final report of the work that had been done. If Golden Rule had not been looking in on our home, then we would have returned to a mess. We will absolutely have Golden Rule watch our home in the future when we travel.”

“We used Golden Rule for the first time in October 2019 while in Europe for over a month. They came to our house every week and did a fine job sending detailed reports including pictures, systems status, comments, and recommendations. They put a battery charger on our car battery to keep it topped off. They even used a leaf blower on our walkway, deck and driveway and watered our house plants. The plants looked as good as when we left! Dan, the owner, knows a lot about house systems and small things to make the house lived in. His suggestions were spot on. We will use Golden Rule again on our next trip.”
—Alden S., Oakton, Va.
“Golden Rule Home Watch provided great peace of mind during our extended absence, checking on our home weekly and periodically driving our car. Dan is reliable; very knowledge about both home maintenance and cars; and communicates very clearly, both in person and through his weekly status reports. We would absolutely use Golden Watch under similar circumstances in the future.”

“Golden Rule provides an important and quality service for our home while traveling. The increase in severe weather has emphasized the importance of this service. It is too much to ask neighbors to deal with a storm or tree issue, especially while they themselves are dealing with their own home. In addition, it is wonderful to know that the house is being checked, stray deliveries are collected and plants are being watered when we are traveling. Golden Rule takes care of these things and provides reports and support while you are away. Knowing we have this trusted relationship has made a very positive difference to us, and we confidently recommend Dan and the Golden Rule team!”
– Mary D., Oakton, Va.
“Golden Rule Home Watch gave us great peace of mind when we were away from home. They visited our home regularly and sent us a detailed electronic report after each visit. The Golden Rule Team is friendly, knowledgeable and provided great customer service. I highly recommend!”

“GRHW watched our home while we were on vacation. It was a relief not to have to impose upon our neighbors to water our plants; get our mail; and check on our home. Halfway through our vacation, we were notified of a delivery of perishable items we were not expecting. We texted Dan, and he immediately went to our house, retrieved the package and put everything neatly away in our freezer. When we got home, our flowers and vegetable garden looked healthy, our mail was neatly stacked, and they even blew off our driveway and deck as a courtesy. We will never go on vacation again without having GRHW watch our home!”

“Our family has been very impressed with Golden Rule, we feel that this group is “the” organization to handle home watch services in the DMV area. We work with professionals all the time in a home and landscaping capacity and have high expectations and demands for our home needs. This group has excelled in every area. They are a very comprehensive and trustworthy organization, with great experience in this field.
Their service is excellent, they are both very responsive and forward thinking in the type of coverage a client needs. Many of their recommendations have proved quite useful in our experience.
No matter what the issue, time frame or concern we knew that we could count on Dan and the group at Golden Rule to treat our home as if it was their own. They are professionals, both serious and committed to doing a thorough job. I would not hesitate to use them again! I couldn’t think of anyone else to trust our home to but Golden Rule.”

“Golden Rule Home Watch is the ‘premier’ home monitoring service in our area. This organization impressed us with both their professionalism and their customer service oriented focus. They are quite thorough in their analysis and very conscientious. During our absence we found them to be very interactive, offering immediate responsiveness and detailed communications. They provide individualized care and could easily accommodate any special requests. Entrusting our home to their care gave us a real sense of comfort and security, we would not hesitate to use them again. This is a first class company!”
