About Diligent Home Watch

Diligent Home Watch is a family-owned and operated local business. After many years of frequent “weekender” visits to the Coachella Valley, Rick and Ellie Hively decided to make the Desert their permanent home in 2015.

How It Started

Since they were here full-time, a few relatives and friends asked Rick & Ellie if they would mind occasionally going over to their home just to make sure everything was OK. They did this for about two years and discovered how rewarding and enjoyable it is to help friends and family. In fact, who would not want to give these absentee homeowners the peace of mind that their home is being well taken care of when they are not there.

Having owned their own business for the last 20 years, they thought, “what better way to put down roots in the Desert than to have a business that provides a real service to homeowners. Thus, Diligent Home Watch was born.

Why the word “Diligent”? Diligent is defined as “attentive and persistent, careful and detailed in doing anything“. That is what we are… Diligent. Diligently watching your home!
