We are pleased to announce the addition of Mike Walther and Laura Eldridge (formerly of Cape House Caretakers) as part of our Home Watch Team!
Mike has lived on the Lower Cape off and on for his entire life. In fact, his family has owned property in Chatham since the 1940’s, where he spent summers as a child. He graduated from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst in 1991 and joined his family’s insurance agency, working as Vice President & COO until its sale in 2004. He maintains his insurance broker license to this day. He is an avid golfer and has been employed by Cape Cod National Golf Club in Brewster since 2008. Mike prides himself on outstanding customer service skills, professionalism and passion for “doing the job right.” Mike has been involved in the community for years having been a Rotary Club member and youth sports coach among other things. Besides golf, Mike likes to spend time with his wife and 2 teenage children, logging a lot of road time to attend his children’s sporting events and activities all over New England.
Laura is a wash-ashore, born and raised in the Tri-State area. After graduating in 1984 from Wittenberg University in Springfield, Ohio, she attended graduate school at University of Colorado in Boulder, though a summer spent on the Cape derailed her plans to become a college English professor. The Cape felt like “home” and the rest is history. Married to a native Cape Codder, with whom she has run the family landscape business for over 25 years, Laura has a wide range of skills and experiences related to home watch services. She has been the caretaker for many properties over the years and excels at organizational and technology. An avid beekeeper and gardener, Laura has lived in Brewster for over 30 years, with her husband, 2 children and a variety of chickens.
“It has been an absolute pleasure working with Moore Security and Services. We live 3000 miles away from our Cape Cod property and are confident it is being well taken care of while we are away. Mr. Moore provides or will coordinate anything that is on our ‘to do list’ for the property. Repairs, cleaning, even emergency services are done promptly and professionally. The weekly house checks ensure our home is safe, secure and everything is running smoothly. Knowing Mr. Moore and his wonderful staff are managing every aspect of maintaining our Cape Cod home allows us to enjoy it stress free.”
Laura and Bill, Orleans, MA
