Dakota Home Watch of Bismarck, ND, earns third-year accreditation from the NHWA!

Jack Luber
Executive Director


Dakota Home Watch of Bismarck, North Dakota, has earned Accredited Member status from the NHWA for the third year.

Dakota Home Watch is owned and operated by the mother-and-son team of Tracey and Derek Lockrem, who 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, have been married for over 30 years and 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 healthcare field for over 30 years, has a passion for hospitality, and is committed to serving others.

Both Tracey and Derek have earned the designation of NHWA Certified Home Watch Professional. The CHWP designation shows their commitment to providing excellent service to their clients. They are the peace of mind you need while you’re away.

We had the pleasure of spending a little time with the Lockrems during the NHWA’s 2019 North American Conference in May.
