After seeing break-ins, vandalism and even arson on his block in the last year, Hugh Wilson founded Point Roberts Security to give absent homeowners an extra pair of eyes.
Having worked with Julius Realty for 12 years, Wilson has extensive experience in real estate on the Point, and he combines that with experience in the construction industry from 20 years as a painting contractor. With deep roots in the community, he works as a coordinator for the Point Roberts Senior Center.
Point Roberts Security provides several levels of service. Perimeter checks are the most reasonably priced, and include checking for vandalism, break-ins, open door or windows, flooding, alarms and damage from wind or frost. Interior checks can also be arranged, to look for burners left on, check water tanks, etc.
Property owners will get regular reports, and if problems are found Wilson will help solve them, including photographing damage or making referrals to local contractors for repairs.
“It isn’t property management, it’s making sure your home is safe,” Wilson said. “This way if people don’t want to or can’t come down to the Point, they don’t have to make the drive.”
