C’s Home and Office Management Adds to Accolades

For the seventh year running, C’s Home & Office Management earned Accredited Member status from the National Home Watch Association — which maintains “the highest standards for Home Watch and absentee homeowner services throughout the United States and Canada,” according to a press release.

At the helm of the Sag Harbor-based business are Chris and Cynthia Capalbo, both success stories in their own right — he a former horse trainer in Colorado and California, until he was badly injured and relocated to the East Coast, where he met his now-wife, who got her start cleaning houses in the village to bring in extra income while earning her bachelor’s degree in business management.

From there, C’s Home & Office Management was born. As the business was growing, the couple welcomed their twins, Haley and Christopher, in 2000.

“Shortly thereafter, they both lost their mothers to pancreatic cancer,” the release said of the Capalbos. “Cindy then became interested in finding alternative ways to treat illnesses and disease. She went back to school and earned her master’s in herbology. She thought it would be smart business and personally rewarding to incorporate her knowledge into her business by offering organic cleaning products and becoming a certified Green Cleaning Company.”

C’s Home & Office Management serves Sag Harbor, East Hampton, Southampton, Noyac, Wainscott, Watermill, Bridgehampton and Sagaponack. For more information, call (631) 725-2408 or visit
