We have had Nancy Wagner checking on our home in Sarasota the past four years. We were immediately impressed with her organizational skills and efficiency along with her warm personality. We were more than just another house to check as she shared in the excitement of our first grandchild. We sold our first house and purchased another, so one summer she was checking on two houses for us. Her communication after each visit, was excellent. Very detail oriented reports including how the yard looked and the pool. If there was a problem with either of those, she contacted the individual we had hired.

There was a water leak in our home which was discovered by Nancy’s staff. This turned out to be a rather large problem which was handled quickly and thoroughly by Nancy and her team of contractors. She went the extra mile and brought over extra dehumidifiers to handle the moisture issues.

We are able to go away for the summer each year knowing that In the Nick of Time is checking on our home. Peace of mind is a very good thing!

The smartest decision we have made since buying our home in Sarasota is to have Nancy Wagner care for it while we are away. There is nothing more important than peace of mind and this is exactly what Nancy delivers. She treats your property like it is her own and nothing is an inconvenience for her. She responds with urgency to all questions and on all issues. We have referred many friends to her and they all have the same sentiment. Thank you Nancy!

Trustworthy, reliable; gives us peace of mind that our home is safe and secure. Highly recommend.


We purchased our condo in Sarasota in 2009, and we were referred to In the Nick of Time by our real estate agent John Peterson. Nancy immediately made us feel, not simply like a customer, but special. We not only talked about the services she can provide but also provided us with helpful hints in maintaining our condo. Nancy is very knowledgeable of the area along with having reputable service providers available.

Our decision to entrust her with looking after our 2nd home was made very easily. The service we receive from in the Nick of Time is not only prompt with response and reporting but very personable. On some of our special occasions, we have arrived at our condo to find a special touch was added for that visit.

This is not just a home watch service but a service that makes you feel like family. We have been client of in the Nick of Time since 2009 and never once have we had any regret. We have piece of mind from someone who is like family. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

Nancy Wagner at In The Nick of Time has been a joy to work with. From the first phone call she helped us set up our second home for seasonal rental. Since then she and her vendors have shown the business to be reliable, efficient, and dependable. This includes advanced notice for work schedules, frequent communications and updates, and excellent work with vendors. We feel secure knowing she is there looking out for us and our home!

I have been a client of In The Nick Of Time for approximately four years. I have been very pleased with their personalized service, attention to detail, and responsiveness to special requests. I would consider them a top five star home watch service.


I just wanted to take a minute and let you know about our experience with the home watch company “In the Nick of Time”.

We are first time vacation home owners and currently live at our permanent residence in Indiana. There is no question in our minds that we would not be able to maintain our home in Florida without the services of Nancy and her staff. There have been numerous times that we’ve received a call from our neighborhood association informing us of something that needed to be done at our home immediately (from changing an outside lightbulb to investigating an overly high water use bill). I have called Nancy with full confidence that the situation would be taken care of properly and that she would be our communication with the necessary people involved. She has been a great source of information, has went to bat on our behalf and has resolved all situations in a timely manner.

I believe I was most impressed with the services of “In the Nick of Time” this January when my parents arrived at our vacation home to spend a few months. No one had been at the house since March of last year. When they arrived, the home was perfectly cleaned (and they are very picky people!), towels were laid out, blinds were open. The only thing my parents had to do was run to the grocery, which Nancy and her staff would have done if requested!

So, kuddos to “In the Nick of Time”. You are a top notch business and we are blessed to be your clients.

We have used the services of “In The Nick of Time” since we purchased our condo over 6yrs. ago. Nancy is a true gem who feels nothing is too much or too little and is so reliable, willing and dedicated creating a high standard of service that has truly given us an invaluable peace of mind when we leave Sarasota to return to our home in Ontario Canada.

Vivienne and David Salamon

We always have peace of mind knowing our house and the security of our home are in the very best possible hands with Nancy and the team at In the Nick of Time. Nancy’s outstanding attention to every possible detail is what sets Nick of Time apart from any other service provider.
