Proxy is the best choice for clients who want not only the largest home watch and management company in Western Carolina, but also the oldest, with the best-trained staff. Unlike most competitors who provide home watch as a secondary service, Proxy’s primary business is home watch. It all started in 2006 and grew quickly as word-of-mouth referrals spread. Proxy currently provides services to almost $100 million worth of homes in the Western Carolina region. The guiding mission of Proxy is to do everything possible to keep expensive things from happening. Also critical is to quickly catch the unexpected so that the result is a temporary inconvenience rather than a major disaster. Worry-free when away and hassle-free when home, is what we seek for our clients.
Our client retention rate is over 70%. Client references and testimonials are gladly and proudly provided. Proxy maintains a General Contractor’s license and is bonded and insured.
Cross Training of relevant skill sets is a hallmark of Proxy’s operations and an important benefit for clients. Phil Murphy, owner of Proxy, brings an Engineering eye (U.S. Merchant Marine Academy) and a Business discipline (California State University) to the operation. Along with significant US military experience, the Proxy team combines diverse yet complementary training in Meteorology, Wildlife Biology, Project/Construction Management, and Logistics.
Going Green whenever feasible is a high priority at Proxy. In the office and in client’s homes, thermostats and appliances are set to safely minimize energy usage. Driving routes are planned to maximize fuel efficiency using electric and hybrid vehicles.
New Technologies related to home watch, disaster prevention, and maintenance are regularly researched and tested. When a piece of technology seems like a good fit for a home it’s tested and results are tracked. Winners get rolled out across all homes. Some examples of technology that have been employed are: remotely monitored smart thermostats and sensors; humidity and temperature detectors; automatic water shutoff valves; water leak sensors; and touchpad door locks.
