A Neighbor You Can Trust

I'm Derek Schutte and my best memories are of days spent on Smith Lake. I have been visiting Smith Lake for over 10 years. After graduating from the Kelley School of Business at Indiana University in 2020, I knew I wanted to work with the Smith Lake community of supportive, fun, hardworking neighbors that share my passion for enjoying lake days. My family and I know just how much wasted lake time can be spent on the set up, take down, and household maintenance that come with owning a home. I


wanted to find a way to ensure that my neighbors don’t have to spend lake days doing chores and that they can know their houses are well taken care of while they are away. As a fellow lake lover with a family home on Smith Lake, I understand the concerns and tasks that my neighbors experience. As a young entrepreneur, I am so excited to give my neighbors the freedom to enjoy Smith Lake by taking care of their home and property maintenance while they are away. I am committed to providing the best service for my neighbors while keeping them updated with personalized messages, information and photos of their property.


Enjoy Every Moment, 
Without the Work

I take care of the work so that you and your family are able to enjoy every moment spent at the lake. I will send real-time updates and photos to keep you informed on your home while you are away. These are the ways that I help make your time at the lake hassle-free:

  • Maintenance 

  • Pre-Arrival Set Up

  • Post-Departure Take Down

  • Referrals
