If you are not using Alan to watch your home while you are gone, you should be! he will inspect and report everything from bugs and mildew to dead batteries in your vehicles. Then he will send you the most detailed report you have ever received. This is not anything like what your friends or neighbors will do when they ‘keep an eye on your house.


This is the best Service anyone can get to give you peace of mind that your home is being taken care of while you’re not there. Alan is honest and truthful and does the most thorough inspection of your home, so you know everything is good. If something needs to be done, he sends you a text and you and him get the job done. I can’t say enough about how happy my wife and I are about Alan. We highly recommend Looking Glass Home Watch.

Home Watch kept a close eye on our snowbird property. Every two weeks we received a detailed report with photos and assurances that all is well. Alan is a detail-oriented professional who is very nice to deal with. He made sure our home was safe and protected. We look forward to using his services for years to come. Highly recommend!

This is an awesome service provided by a Veteran! Knowing that Alan was inspecting my home on a weekly basis gave me a lot of comfort when I was away for several months. He is so very thorough, an excellent communicator, and his service is reasonable. I would recommend him to anyone who wants peace of mind when on a trip. Whether it is short term or long term, Alan will be there checking on your property and giving you regular reports.

Alan Lanthier has been looking after our home-away-from-home in Ocala Palms for nearly two years now. I don’t think I can find the words to truly convey the level of trust, respect and appreciation he’s earned from us in that time! We never have to worry or wonder about how things are at the house – the detailed reports and photos he sends after each visit ensure we always know exactly what’s going on, inside and out. Being new to the Ocala area and infrequent visitors, we have no idea who to call if something goes wrong. Not only does Alan contact us immediately when he finds a problem, he helps find and line-up the right people to get things fixed and keeps his eye on the situation to make sure it’s taken care of the way it should be. He’s been right there to help us with everything from appliance and HVAC repairs and replacements to remodeling our garage and laundry room. And because he’s also a Veteran, Alan “speaks the same language” as my retired Marine husband and has the same high standards and expectations for whatever work is done. From our first meeting with Alan, and every day since, he’s shown himself to be a consummate professional with an unwavering commitment to providing superlative service to his Looking Glass Home Watch clients – and at an extremely reasonable price. Thank you, Alan!

Alan has a very unique, but much in demand business. He offers the security of knowing that someone knowledgeable and reliable is watching out for your home when you are away on an extended vacation or reside up north during the Florida summer. For a reasonable fee, Alan does a multi-point inspection inside and outside the house for you and sends a reports to you. Offering you peace of mind knowing that your home and investment is really looked after. Will your neighbor do that, or does he just drive by and text you that “Everything looks okay to me”. Alan spent a great deal of his life in the military and as such is very thorough, regimented and trustworthy. I highly recommend him!

We like it a lot how Alan of Looking Glass Homewatch is taking care of our house when we are away. He always shows up, every week like clockwork. And he is very thorough in his job and it shows that he likes what he is doing, a trained and trusted professional. We can see with our surveillance camera’s inside and outside that he checks everything very thorough and after every inspection we get a extensive report about the exterior and interior of our house. Not a copy paste report but always as is at that moment, compete with pictures. He really inspects it all, outside, pool, inside cup boards, looks for leakages, insects, locks, takes care of the mail, the works and every inspection lasts for about 1 hour. You can make the inspections a custom service and you only pay when he does the inspections, no expensive subscriptions.

We can really recommend Alan from Looking Glass Homewatch! He knows his stuff and is very reliable. So if you’re looking for someone to take care of your house when you are on a holiday or snow-birding, we sincerely recommend Alan! He treats our property as if it were his own.

“We recently went on a 10-day trip out of the country and had looking Glass Home Watch check on our home while we were gone. Alan performed a security check on our property, checking the inside and  outside, and he also made sure there were no water or electricity issues.  We then received an emailed report from him on the status of our home.  The service really helps you feel more secure about your home when you are away.”
