About Coastal Florida Home Watch
Coastal Florida Home Watch was started in 2019 by a husband and wife team, Russell and Laura Ahern. The mission is to provide homeowners, specifically Snowbirds, with peace of mind that their property will remain in optimum condition while they are away.
Previously licensed in Michigan as an Individual Builder, Russell is extremely knowledgeable in all areas of home building, remodeling, and maintenance. Together, they completed a total renovation of their own “fixer upper” in Palm Beach Shores, bringing the home up to code and transforming it into one of the nicest houses in the neighborhood. Through this and other projects, Russell has become very familiar with local codes and building permits.
Russell’s knowledge and experience will head off any potential issues that are likely to occur in unoccupied homes. Russell oversees the property inspections and goes above and beyond to give our clients peace of mind!
Highly skilled in online research and Microsoft Office software, Laura oversees the administrative and business side of Coastal Florida Home Watch.
They provide home-visits and regular inspections to ensure peace of mind and security. Other services offered include maintenance assistance and supervision, key holder, and concierge services. If you need something, we can find it for you.
Focusing on the Singer Island area, their service area encompasses most of Palm Beach County. Russell and Laura are dedicated to making their services as seamless as possible and look forward to exceeding your expectations.
Originally from the Detroit, Michigan area, Russell retired from General Motors in 2006. In addition to being employed at GM, Russell was a licensed General Contractor in Michigan (Individual Builder License).
Originally from central Indiana, Laura joined the United States Navy in 1985 and retired in 2005. She served aboard two Guided Missile Destroyers, DDG-71 USS Ross and DDG-74 USS McFaul. She was stationed in Sicily from 1990-1993, and was a course supervisor of an Electronics course in Virginia Beach from 1999-2002.
Laura has a Bachelor of Science Degree in Management and Human Relations from Trevecca Nazarene University.
