Our main objective is to catch a problem before it happens. 


We are continually developing relationships with local vendors to give us the best and most cost effective options for electrical, plumbing, roofing, housekeeping and handyman services if needed. If we don't trust them, we will not use them.

Anthony Buttacavole & Joseph Koesel

Founders and Owners of Dependable Home Watch Services of the Desert, LLC.



Anthony and Joseph moved to the Coachella Valley from New York City in the summer of 2018 after being regular visitors to the Palm Springs area for the last ten years.   In 2012, they purchased a property in Cathedral City knowing they wanted to move to there in the future.  They immediately understood what it meant to have a vacant property thousands of miles away and not having anybody to look after it.  They hired a property manager who quickly rented the house so it would be occupied.  When Anthony & Joseph visited the Palm Springs area after the purchase of the home, they always scheduled and conducted a home inspection to assure it was being taken care of by the tenants.  When they finally moved to their home in Cathedral City, they knew there was a market for a Home Watch service in the Coachella Valley and formed the company “Dependable Home Watch Services of the Desert".  They also understand all the different issues that can arise with a home in the desert and understand problems have to be resolved sooner than later.  

Anthony and Joseph want to provide the best Home Watch service to the full and part time residents of the Coachella Valley, so when they come back to their home in the desert, they will have peace of mind their home is being watched by a company that cares.”

As a couple, Anthony and Joseph have been together for 20 years and are married for 11 years. At one point they owned and managed multiple properties in the New York City area for investment purposes.  When it was time to move to the Coachella Valley, they and their two dogs, Peanuts and Bello, drove cross-country to their home in Cathedral City.  After being here for almost a year now, they felt they need to offer a Home Watch Service to the part-time and full-time residents of the Coachella Valley. Based on their prior job experience and careers, as well as, their life experience, Anthony and Joseph will knowingly provide the best Home Watch Service in the Coachella Valley.
