Are You Ready?

At Sun Chasers Home Watch Services we are all about being prepared.

Our motto is “Chase the Sun & Know Your Home Is Safe With Us”. In order to make sure our customers can feel that their home is safe while they’re away we offer our eyes and ears as well as our expertise and many local contractors in order to lessen the probability that they will suffer catastrophic losses during their absence.

We know that even if we are inspecting your property weekly there is no guarantee that something won’t happen which causes a potential threat an hour after we leave. However, if there are only a few days between checks, instead of weeks, the chance that we can find problems before they become catastrophes is vastly improved. If a pipe starts leaking, or worse it bursts, the shorter time between the start of the leak and the time we find it, the better chance we have to remedy the problem before the small leak turns into a catastrophe. But what if a major catastrophe happens instead of a simple leak?

Let’s All Get Ready

OK, so you’re thinking about hiring someone to watch your property while you are away, or better yet, you have already hired them. How can you make sure that you and your property is ready for something unexpected?

Emergency Ready Program

In our quest to be the best Property Watch company we can be, we have made a commitment to help our customers be as secure as possible and as ready as possible for unexpected emergencies.

As part of that quest we recently met with a friend of ours and another member of the Palm Desert Area Chamber of Commerce. Robert “Bob” Barber is the Business Development Representative of SERVPRO of Palm Desert. They are the local franchise of a national corporation that specializes in the cleanup and restoration of residential and commercial property after a fire, smoke or water damage event.

Servpro understands the stress and worry that comes with a fire or water damage and the disruption it causes your life and home or business. Their goal is to help minimize the interruption to your life and quickly make it “Like it never even happened.” It is because of the shared mission of  Servpro and Sun Chasers…. “to eliminate this kind of stress”, that we have formed a partnership which we feel will benefit our valued customers.

Like us, Bob is all about making sure that as many local area businesses and residents are prepared and “Ready Rated” for those unexpected events that can threaten our lives and our property.  In the next couple of posts we will be sharing the story of the American Red Cross’s Ready Rating program. We have adopted the program for our business as well as for ourselves and will be offering it free of charge to all of our customers…. Let’s all get Ready!!


Chase the Sun & Know That Your Home is Safe With Us!!

Greetings to everyone and welcome to the Sun Chasers blog.

Our goal is to provide valuable information to Palm Springs area visitors, 2nd home owners, and full time residents alike! If you have any questions relating to preparing for your time away from your desert oasis or wondering how you can welcome your guests visiting your vacation rental property, we will attempt to provide answers here in this blog.

Dean and Kay Peterson, Owners of Sun Chasers Home Watch Services in Palm Desert California

Who Are We?

We are the proud parents of our very own newborn business…. Sun Chasers Home Watch Services centrally located in Palm Desert California, in the heart of the beautiful Coachella Valley. The beautiful lady in this photo is my partner and DreamGirl, Kay Peterson. I’m the lucky guy that is married to her. Together, we are the owners and operators of Sun Chasers.

This business was created soon after we moved to Palm Desert as full time residents last fall. We have owned more than one vacation home in this area over the years while we were still members of the rat race that is known as Los Angeles. These properties provided us with a getaway from that rat race. Having been owners of these homes and experiencing more than one expensive surprise when we returned to our desert oasis, we learned that it makes sense to hire a local set of ‘eyes & ears’ to watch out for us during those extended periods when we were away.

Why Did We Open This Business?

Unfortunately, before we learned this expensive lesson, we had asked a couple of neighbors to “keep an eye” on our property while we were back in the rat race. We figured that, seeing as how our vacation home was located in a “gated” community, we shouldn’t need to pay someone to watch it. Much to our displeasure we found that if you don’t have a professional watch your valuable investment you may come back to it to find that your neighbor basically watched from across the street, not with the close professional and experienced ‘eyes & ears’ that are needed to make sure that small issues don’t become major disasters. That was the seed for Sun Chasers Home Watch Services.

Our Mission

Our mission is to be a professional, friendly, family-owned home watch company that offers owners of 2nd homes and vacation rental properties the peace of mind which comes from knowing that we are your eyes and ears while you are away. Our mission won’t be compromised… we aim to be consistent, friendly, reactive and customized. We view ourselves as an extension of you and we will treat your home as if it were ours. “Chase The Sun, And Know That Your Home is Safe With Us”
