Mark Weiss – Owner

Mark is a practicing physician while his wife, Susan, is a dentist. They are both natives of Michigan.  Although Flint has been their primary home, they have owned a secondary home and other rental properties in Petoskey for the past 30+ years.   After retiring from his successful management and consulting firm in 2019, Mark sold his home in Flint, and they relocated to their home in Petoskey.

Keeping Watch was put into operation from Mark’s firsthand experience and understanding of the anxiety and frustration when problems arise at your “home away from home”.  Being travelers themselves, Mark and Sue know how important trusted and committed care is to a home owner, whether it is for short term or long term.  When something unforeseen occurs, such as a failed thermostat, a door left unlocked, a water leak; whether it is electrical, plumbing, pest control, climate related or other issue, Mark knows a quick response and resolution needs to be found.  Small problems left unresolved can become big headaches.

Mark has led in his professional career with integrity, professionalism and great customer service.  He brings those same skills and attributes to Keeping Watch.  Instead of burdening a neighbor, friend or relative with looking after your home, Mark would encourage you to give Keeping Watch the opportunity to be your eyes and ears while you are away.  Keeping Watch will make certain problems are discovered and resolved quickly with trusted and reliable service.

Whether it is your seasonal home, vacation home or your permanent home, Mark and the staff of Keeping Watch are qualified to keep watch of your home with professionalism, integrity and great care while you are away.
