The Herget Family
Brad, Emily and sons
Home Watch of CT, LLC was established in Washington, Connecticut by Brad & Emily Herget after noting that there was a lack of home watch services. We thought there was an obvious need for this type of business considering the local demographics and continued trends towards increased part-time residents. We started Home Watch of CT to serve this demand while offering a nationally accredited service that still has that 100% family owned and operated feel to it.
After a decade of living in Boston, we moved to Connecticut to raise our two young boys where Emily grew up. Brad has lived all over the country, but grew up in northern New Hampshire on a farm. Much of his knowledge and experience stems from helping to maintain the 125 acre farm as well as learning trades from his father who owned and operated a lumber yard.
We are proud members of the Washington Business Association (WBA).
