Absentee Home Care has been absolutely terrific. Michael was here the day we closed on our home purchase with all the support we needed to prep our home and move in. Since then, every member of the team has been responsive, skilled, honest and a pleasure to deal with. Every request is addressed on a timely basis. Absentee has an excellent network of tradesmen, so they are a single source for everything we need. Michael and his team take the stress out of being “out of town” owners.

About 16 years ago we found ourselves looking for a new home management company to take care of our home in Florida. It was very important to us that we hire someone extremely reliable as we live in Ottawa , Canada for 7 months of the year. We needed to be absolutely certain that our home be taken care of properly during our absence. What we found with Michael Mednick was not only did he take care of our home while we were away, but the service he provides us over the season is unmatchable. We could not manage without him. Michael is 100% reliable, a very nice person & he can fix anything! We highly recommend Michael & Absentee Homecare.

We have been clients of Absentee Home since purchasing our vacation home in Boca Raton eight years ago. Mike and his team have been great to work with since day one. They are always responsive and professional in taking care of our house when we are back in New England. Absentee also has an excellent network of contractors to handle plumbing, electrical and other home repair needs.  We highly recommend Absentee to anyone looking for caretaking of their Florida home.

I have been a client of Absentee for the last 4 years, and all I can say is that I have never been so thrilled, at ease and grateful to have such a wonderful team to take care of my home. The staff are all friendly, warm, knowledgeable  and attentive. They treat my home as if it was their own. They pay the most  reliable attention to detail while I am away, and sometimes when I am there. Phone calls are always answered, they are available through email and Emergencies are a top priority. Anything inside or outside the home that ever goes wrong, is always taken care of. They also source outside help, if needed and  pick and arrange top notch people and companies. I just love the fact that I don’t have a worry in the world, when it comes to the care of my home. So grateful.
