GMan Home Watch



About Us


Venice is home to owners Jorge “George” and Barbara Martinez who started GMan Home Watch following careers in the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). The name “GMan Home Watch” is a play on the slang term for FBI Special Agents dating back to the 1930s. Together, George and Barbara bring over 60 years of dedicated experience in law enforcement and property protection to this business.

Florida has always been their retirement dream location and over the years they visited various parts of the state before discovering the Venice area. They fell in love with the sunny weather, friendly residents and the numerous educational and recreational activities Venice has to offer.

George and Barbara know the wonders of vacation home ownership. They also know what it is like to wonder from afar how well your home has weathered a recent storm. Even worse yet, what it is like to return to paradise only to find damage due to a broken air conditioner or pipe.

Combining their personal experiences with their dedication to serving and protecting the public is where the idea of G-Man Home Watch got its start.

The owners of G-Man Home Watch want their clients to see them as their most trusted neighbor and feel comfortable knowing their home is being well-cared for by responsible and reliable team while they are away.
