Crystal and her 4 children are from Glens Falls, New York. They relocated to Palm City, Florida in 2016. When asked why Southeast Florida she expressed that her youngest son Austin was about to start High School and he had a desire to participate in the JROTC (Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corp) program. (Austin later joined the USMC) following his older siblings with a Military career. “We also knew that we needed to be far enough south to always have tropical weather.”
The move from NY to Florida has been momentous for Crystal. From meeting her husband, Ken to launching her own successful pool care business, (Crystal Pool Care of Martin County).
As the owner/operator of the pool business, she spent long hours physically cleaning the pools and in her clients backyards. After selling that business, (Crystal is a born entrepreneur) she began to think about all her “seasonal clients”. Who would watch out for their properties the way she did? Caring for her customers property even though she was hired to only care for the pool was something that just instinctively happened. This successful entrepreneur saw her next great opportunity, First Mate Home Watch, LLC.
In June of 2022, loving “home watch” and realizing that it was important for her clients to have the best possible care, Crystal sought out information from the National Home Watch Association so she could secure additional training. Being guided by the experts, she successfully completed the NHWA Home Watch Boot Camp. . She is now recognized as being a Professional. Insured, Bonded, Certified and Accredited Home Watcher, among the very best in the industry!
Caring for her clients, their homes and properties is something that Crystal is proactive about. She is hoping to catch a situation while it is small so her clients do not have to be reactive to a much more serious issue later.
Congratulations Crystal! Your clients are so fortunate to have First Mate Home Watch caring for their homes.
