Congratulations to Celtic Home Watch of Ellenton, FL, on their second-year accreditation!​

Iain Gunn

Celtic Home Watch of Ellenton, Florida, has earned accreditation from the NHWA for the second year.

Owner Iain Gunn comes with 25 years of property experience. Starting as a maintenance technician, he advanced to the level of maintenance manager. He moved into property management at the management level, culminating in the position of regional director over multiple properties for a property development company with a large portfolio of residential and commercial properties. Iain understands what can happen to an unoccupied property and the need for checks to mitigate possible problems that could go months without the attention of a certified, accredited, and most importantly, responsible person.

Iain is a graduate of the NHWA’s Home Watch Boot Camp and has earned the designation of Certified Home Watch Professional, which places him into the category of elite Home Watch providers in the industry. The CHWP designation and Boot Camp training exemplify Iain’s commitment to Home Watch excellence.

Iain was born and raised in the Highlands of Scotland and lived about 15 miles from the infamous Loch Ness monster. This rich heritage is the underlying reason for the name “Celtic Home Watch.” Iain came to the United States 30 years ago and met his wife. At the age of 18, Iain enlisted in the Scots Guards, then returned to Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland, where he lived and worked. As a boy, he was surrounded by music, with both his parents being musicians in a dance band. With music always played in their home, it was natural for Iain to follow in their footsteps. On his return to Edinburgh, he worked during the day on the administrative staff of a large law firm. In the evenings, he managed a large cabaret show in a five-star hotel. Iain eventually left the law firm and teamed up with a solo musician; very soon they were performing in North America. From there, their notoriety spread, taking them to the Middle East, where they entertained expat Scots in the oil business, then undertook a five-week tour of New Zealand. Another five-week tour from Winnipeg to Nova Scotia finished out the year. In 1989, they were offered their first recording contract, followed by an invitation to perform at a Silver Jubilee celebration attended by Queen Elizabeth II and the Duke of Edinburgh. In 1992, they produced a second CD done live in Ocean Grove, New Jersey.

Celtic Home Watch is a member of the Manatee County Chamber of Commerce and serves Ellenton, Lakewood Ranch, South Bradenton, and Parrish. You can reach Iain at (941) 260-2744 or Learn more from his website, at

Congratulations, Iain!

As always, I wish you

Much success,

Jack Luber
