Congrats to Lakeside Home Watch & Property Solutions of Shell Knob, MO, on their third-year accreditation!​

Rusty Rickard

Lakeside Home Watch & Property Solutions of Shell Knob, Missouri, has earned third-year accreditation from the NHWA.

Owner Rusty Rickard has lifelong ties to Shell Knob and has served the area in various capacities in both public service and private business. 

Rusty is a Shell Knob native and has lived there for 40 years. He is very well known in the community. At the age of 23, Rusty became a business owner in the community; that business is still operational today. He serves as the local Fire Chief, has held positions on multiple boards throughout the community, and has held an honorary reserve commission with the local sheriff’s office. 

Having been born and raised in the area gives Rusty a wide knowledge, combined with his nearly 25 years’ experience in the fire service. He found there was a serious need for a Home Watch service in his area. Rusty heard friends and property owners saying things like, “Can you keep an eye on my house while I’m away?” “We don’t know or trust the neighbors.” “I’m worried about my house after that crazy storm last night.” That’s where Rusty came in. He created the business and works hard to fill the needs of lake, vacation, and second homeowners and give them peace of mind.

Lakeside Home Watch & Property Solutions serves the Shell Knob area. You can reach them at (417) 524-0084 or at Learn more from their website, at

Congratulations, Rusty!

As always, I wish you

Much success,

Jack Luber
Executive Director
