Local home watch organization earns accredited status


Osprey Home Watch has earned accredited member status from the National Home Watch Association for the second year. The NHWA was formed in 2009 in order to establish and maintain the highest industry standards for Home Watch and absentee homeowner services throughout the United States and Canada. Home Watch is a service that “keeps an eye on things” at your vacation or primary home while you are not in residence.
