Home Watch of Arizona of Scottsdale, has earned Accredited Member status in the National Home Watch Association for the third consecutive 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.

Co-owner John Hay graduated from Arizona State University with a business degree and a minor in real estate. He has spent the better part of his career in the real estate industry. Mr. Hay has worked not only in sales, but also as a home-builder, apartment owner, and real estate tax consultant, according to a press release.

Debbie, John’s wife and business partner, graduated from ASU with a nursing degree and has spent her career working for Scottsdale Healthcare in many different roles. She is working with John on a part-time basis.

Many of Mr. Hay’s real estate clients over the years have been seasonal homeowners. Seeing the need for a trustworthy service, Home Watch of Arizona became a natural way to serve clients better and to build a business for Mr. Hay family’s future.

Growing up in Scottsdale, Mr. Hay has had the pleasure of watching the entire Phoenix metro area grow, and this has given him a deep understanding of not only the real estate industry in Arizona, but also the coming and going of the seasonal homeowners, the release stated.

Being an owner of a seasonal home in Canada, Mr. Gay knows firsthand how it feels to be in need of someone trustworthy to watch over a seasonal home.

Home Watch of Arizona serves Phoenix, Scottsdale, Paradise Valley, Fountain Hills, Carefree, and Cave Creek. For more information visit
