Congratulations to Gulf Coast Home Watch of Galveston, TX, on their accreditation!​

April Morris and Rodney Kieke

Gulf Coast Home Watch of Galveston, Texas, has earned accreditation from the NHWA.

Co-owner and Partner Rodney Kieke’s career was in oil field construction and heavy-equipment operation. For 25 years, he worked in operations in the facilities management and business services industry. For the last five years, Rodney served as a City Administrator, City Secretary, City Building Official, and Executive Director of Economic Development for Quitman, Texas. Rodney also owned and operated several businesses.

Having owned several second homes, Rodney knows all too well the anxious feeling of that investment being unattended. He says, “Hearing that your home is in the path of a storm or waking up trying to remember if you left the water running or the air condition on 68 degrees in the middle of summer is enough to drive you crazy!”

Co-owner and Partner April Morris has been a Realtor for more than 30 years, focusing on short-term rental management. She owned a corporate housing company in Houston for 14 years, specializing in the inspection, maintenance, management, and operations of 125+ homes.

Rodney and April are both life and business partners who share a passion for servicing their customers with faith-based principles. They met in high school and found each other again in Galveston. Rodney attended Texas A&M. April has a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Management from the University of Phoenix, Houston Campus.   

April feels the Home Watch business is perfect for allowing her to continue to partner with homeowners and help them with their investments and peace of mind.

Rodney has a daughter, Emilee, and son-in-law, Austin, who live and work in Temple, Texas.  They are expecting their first child in August! April has two grown daughters, Savannah and Hannah.
