2nd Home Buying Made A Little Easier

Sontag Homes Services, IncLake Geneva’s original Home Watching Service started over 40 years ago, by John Sontag (Mike’s dad), who was selling real estate in Lake Geneva.  John, knowing that many of his clients were absent from their properties for extended periods of time, offered to check their homes in their absence.

Homeowners quickly recognized the value of having their properties cared for while they were away by a trusted, experienced, local, and knowledgeable individual.  Hence, Sontag Home Services was born.

The family business has grown over the years, its goal, to bring peace of mind and quality of life to clients with multiple homes.  Therefore, eliminating many of the headaches associated with having another home a distance away.

When Sontag Home Service began, their primary responsibility was to check client’s homes and properties to make sure they were secure and that the mechanicals were functioning properly.  Today, along with the foundational house checking service originally offered, they now also work with trusted service providers and trades people to handle most any requests or needs a client has.

Our forty plus years of experience has provided them with knowledge to handle any nuisances needing to be dealt with, situations needing immediate attention to prevent catastrophic damage, and the wisdom to handle both effectively.

When harsh weather hits, houses are checked without regard to how many checks a client has signed on for.  They look after your home as if it were our own.  This is especially important during months where temperatures plunge or through seasons of heavy rain.  When there are extreme weather conditions, they are there to make sure your home/property has not been damaged, and to quickly respond to any issues.

As you can imagine, two homes are never the same and this correlates to their client’s unique and varying needs.  Because of this, their services are customized to each client’s homes and properties.  For most clients, this comes into play with tending to their home during the winter months.  Winter service begins at the end of summer and extends into spring.  During this period, their home is checked five days a week with never more than twenty four hours between checks.  However, because their services are tailored, some houses are checked three days a week, while others are only checked once.

So if you find yourself in a dilemma, wondering how you can make a 2nd home a little more fun and a little less stressful, let Sontag Home Services help.  It’s what they do!

Please visit their website to view the comprehensive home services that they provide to the Geneva Lake and Delavan Lake communities in southeastern Wisconsin and to learn how to become a client today! Contact Michael J Sontag of Sontag Home Services.
