Lakeside Home Watch & Property Solutions of Shell Knob, MO, earns accreditation from the NHWA!

Tonya and Rusty Rickard


Lakeside Home Watch & Property Solutions of Shell Knob, Missouri, has earned Accredited Member status from the NHWA.

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

Rusty is a Shell Knob native and has lived there for 39 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. 

Tonya has lived in Shell Knob for nearly 20 years. Originally residing in Arkansas and moving all over the country as a military brat, she also became a local business owner in the community at the age of 23. Tonya has worked in customer service, accounting, and bookkeeping, as well as local property management and restaurant services. Tonya has also served for many years as a volunteer emergency medical responder in the community.

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 and Tonya come in. They created their business and are working hard to fill the needs of lake, vacation, and second homeowners and give them peace of mind.
