Dakota Home Watch of Bismarck, North Dakota, has earned Accredited Member status from the NHWA.
Dakota Home Watch is owned and operated by the mother-and-son team of Tracey and Derek Lockrem. The Lockrems have been Bismarck residents since 2007.
Derek was born in Fargo, ND, and grew up in Western Montana. He has his Bachelor’s Degree from Montana Bible College and an Associate’s Degree in Graphic Design and Communications from Bismarck State College. Derek has had a knack for customer service from an early age, caring for the needs of his neighbors. With a background in sales, customer service and ministry, he always has his clients’ best interests at heart.
Tracey was born in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada, and graduated with her Master’s Degree in Speech-Language Pathology from Minot State University. She and her husband, Steve, a native of Riverdale, ND, have been married for over 30 years. They have raised three boys and enjoy seven grandkids. After almost 20 years in Western Montana, Steve and Tracey returned home to Bismarck to be closer to family. Tracey has worked in the health care field for over 30 years, has a passion for hospitality, and is committed to serving others.
Tracey and Derek have been thinking about the need for Home Watch services in North Dakota for some time. They have lots of family and friends who are snowbirds and who always seem to be searching for trusted and dependable solutions for the “what ifs” while away. The NHWa provided the perfect tool and training to meet the growing need in their community. They are proud members and look forward to being of service to their clients.
Many of Tracey and Derek’s family and friends are snowbirds and have Home Watch services for their properties in warmer climates, but do not have that peace of mind for their primary residences. Many are depending on family and friends. In their climate, Tracey and Derek know that can be a challenge both for those who are away and those left in charge. They care about their neighbors and understand the concerns of being away from home. This is the heart of Dakota Home Watch.
Welcome, Tracey and Derek!
As always, I wish you
