We founded Mountain View Absentee Homeowners Service in 2014. Our goal is to provide you with the services you need to keep your home in excellent working condition, to have it ready for you when you arrive for a visit, to make sure it is clean and completely closed down when you leave, and to offer other amenities and services that will help make your time in the mountains the best and most relaxing time you can have.
We’ve lived in the eastern Sierra since 1980, and we know the community and surroundings well. We’ve experienced just about everything these mountains can throw at a structure, and have become expert at detecting potential problems before they become big problems.
Jim’s tenure owning and operating a backcountry resort completely off the grid provided him with experience in everything from construction to septic systems, record-breaking snowfall amounts to monsoon rains, and from constructing buildings to water systems to plumbing and electricity. You might say he’s learned to be a jack-of-all-trades when it comes to dwellings, and he’s sharpened his powers of observation in order to minimize or eliminate time-consuming, expensive problems. Eight years of absentee homeowners service for another respected business in town fine-tuned these skills for homes that are not always occupied.
Vickie’s side of the business offers the absentee homeowner a suite of extras to choose from that can maximize your free time in the mountains and minimize your time standing in lines or navigating through snowy parking lots. She handles the website, answers your emails, manages the billing, and also maintains a social media presence for Mountain View, including a private Facebook group for our clients, up-to-date local event calendars, and frequent photos of the area, your home, and other interests.
We look forward to meeting you and creating a custom absentee homeowner’s service for your mountain home.
