Safeguard Properties is the largest privately held mortgage field services company in the country. Headquartered in Cleveland, Ohio and founded in 1990 by Robert Klein, Safeguard inspects and maintains defaulted and foreclosed properties for a wide range of clients in the mortgage industry, from local loan servicing companies to national publicly traded mortgage servicing corporations.

Safeguard is supported by a nationwide network of subcontractors trained and qualified to perform all requested superintendence, preservation and maintenance functions anywhere in the country.
