In 2023, I, Kelly Palko, established Coastal Life Home Services LLC, building upon a rich history of providing these services to neighbors, friends, and family for nearly 30 years. My journey began with house and pet sitting, along with assisting with various tasks in people's homes. I even served as a caretaker, residing at a residence for six months. My passion lies in helping others with tasks they may lack time for or need assistance completing, bringing a sense of purpose to my work.
With a background spanning 12 years in the security and safety field, I honed my attention to detail, investigating skills, and operational awareness. Subsequently, I transitioned to a managerial role in a prominent hardware store, dedicating 21 years to mastering customer service, home care, repairs, product knowledge, and the importance of having the right tools for any job.
My immersion in home construction and remodeling dates back to childhood, where my father involved me in tasks such as assisting with a concrete foundation at the age of five. This early exposure fueled my ongoing interest, as I continued to contribute to my parents' home remodeling endeavors and later undertook the gutting and remodeling of my own home.
Combining my work ethic with a wealth of experience, I graduated from the Home Watch Academy and founded Coastal Life Home Services LLC. I derive immense satisfaction from maintaining my largest investment and I am committed to caring for your home with an even greater level of attention and dedication.
In the last year and a half my wife and I have travelled extensively to family and on cruises and Kelly has been the person I have asked to watch my house, check on my pool, and put the trash cans out for trash day. She has also ensured that packages that I receive are placed inside the garage for safe keeping. Kelly is willing to lend a hand no matter the task.
Kelly managed my home for several weeks while I was on vacation. She informed me while I was away that the AC wasn’t working and she contacted the AC service to repair it, then came out to my home to let them inside to make the repair. On my return, I was extremely satisfied that she had completed all tasks we had agreed for her to do, and made sure that my home was meticulously prepared for my return. She does the job with much care and attention to detail. Being able to rely on her services allows peace of mind while away from home.
We were taking a trip to TN. Our pet sitters couldn't watch our fur babies until two days into our trip. Kelly volunteered to not only watch them but to drive them to the pet sitters for us. It was a huge ask and we were so grateful. Kelly found out all their info and followed our rules. She did wonderful with our doggies. Kelly went above and beyond. Highly recommend.
I have known Kelly for many years and have had her assistance on home projects on a number of occasions. I have always found her to be reliable, competent and a pleasure to work with.
I have used CLHS since the business started and the service has been awesome. Kelly has been a great help over the last 4 months as my wife and I have traveled extensively because of family issues. I recommend her service!
My husband and I have used Kelly for several rides to and from the airport, including just this morning. She is always on time (or early!) reliable, professional and extremely friendly. We look forward to our trips with her! We highly recommend Kelly and Coastal Life Home Services.
