WHAT OTHERS HAVE TO SAY:
Kathy McNulty of Sherwood Properties - Wetaskiwin, AB
I am the General Manager of a property management company located in Alberta with holdings in B.C.. When my assistant in Sidney retired I found Sidney Property Watch on line and contacted Linda. What a pleasure it was to deal with Linda right from the initial contact. I forwarded her an outline of the duties I needed assistance with and then proceeded to give her those and many, many more. She took the challenge and ran with it. To say she is detail oriented, bright and energetic is a gross understatement. She has gone above and beyond in every case. I hope to continue to work with Linda until I retire. I would not hesitate to recommend her and her company to anyone who who has need of her services.

I have known Linda for over 10 years and after having worked very closely with her on a daily basis for 5 of those years, I am now entrusting her with looking after our property in Sidney. Linda is one of the only people that I would trust with looking after our property and I am very glad she is in Sidney to do so. She is meticulous, conscientious, hard working and a good communicator. All the things that will make it easy to ensure the property is well looked after. I fully expect that our property will be better than it ever has been with Linda looking after all the small details when we are not there. Thank you Linda for giving me the peace of mind of knowing that I don't have to worry about our gem anymore.

Nat & Leslie Klein - San Diego, CA
It is our true pleasure to write on behalf of Kenny Podmore. Kenny has looked after our home in Sidney, BC over the past several years. Under Kenny’s superb management, we have been able to rest comfortably, knowing that any issues regarding security, maintenance and condition of our homes while away are being properly addressed. Kenny is intuitive and proactive, often catching problems before they occur. He is conscientious, professional and always uses good judgment.
We rented out our Sidney property recently. Kenny’s assistance was invaluable, saving us expensive trips from San Diego. Our tenant also benefitted tremendously from having Kenny handle any issues that otherwise would have had to been handled via long-distance. Kenny’s observations regarding our tenant’s care of the property were vital in our decision whether to have the tenant back for a second season.
Kenny is one of the most delightful individuals that we have ever worked with. His extensive background in security, management and public service commands instant respect from all who are fortunate enough to know him. His communication skills are superb, always following up on ongoing matters, and informing us when anything important comes up. We are grateful and honoured to have an individual of this caliber to help manage our assets.

Carol Mclaughlin - Sherwood Park, AB
My husband and I live in Alberta and have a vacation property on Vancouver Island. Before I started to use Linda’s services I was concerned about what might be happening at our property and what to do if there was an issue so far away. I no longer worry. She checks regularly and if something needs to be done she tells me and finds the right person to do the job. For me it is simply a matter of peace of mind. I have found Linda to be extremely reliable, friendly and conscientious.

I am honored to write a letter of recommendation for Kenny Podmore. I have known and worked with Kenny for 4 years, He has very instrumental in helping to organize many events and I have found him to be exceptionally trustworthy and thorough. I very much appreciate his attention to detail and his promptness.
While the concept of 'Work Ethic' seems to be a foreign language today, Mr Podmore exhibits this concept beyond imagination! He can and does accomplish more in a day than anyone i have met.
If you own a property and are looking for the perfect person to manage it, Kenny Podmore would be a wonderful choice. His background in security, organization and public office will ensure any property management is carried to the highest degree and communication will be excellent. Kenny's further experience in the concierge industry has allowed him to build a wonderful rapport with strangers, who have come to trust and respect him.
Mr. Podmore has his BC Security Worker license as authorized through BC Security Services Act under the Minister of Justice.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if i can be of further assistance.

Perry McPherson - Edmonton, Alberta Re: Sidney property watch
I have owned my vacation property in the Sidney area for over a year now, and quickly came to realize that distance ownership was different. It was through my network of people at home that I was put in contact with Linda, and was relieved to have someone local who was trustworthy and knowledgeable about the needs of distance ownership. She has always come up with solutions for whatever my needs have been, weather it is recommending service providers, insurance inspections, special event planning, or simply having the house ready for occupancy with groceries etc. I have never been disappointed. This has allowed me to use my time doing what I want to do, enjoying my time in and around Sidney. I believe many of the services that Sidney property watch offers would also be of benefit to those that enjoy their time in the area by boat or yacht as well.
