Smoky Mountain Home Watch of Maggie Valley, NC, earns 11th-year accreditation!

Yolanda and Bob O’Brien

Smoky Mountain Home Watch of Maggie Valley, North Carolina, has earned accreditation from the NHWA for the 11th year.

Bob and Yolanda O’Brien attended the very first NHWA North American Conference in 2013.  So, they are what you call Home Watch OGs. That first gathering was described as a “family reunion where the family just hadn’t met yet.” In 2014 at our second conference, Bob addressed our group and instructed us about proper defense tactics. Bob and Yolanda were planning to retire and grow their Home Watch business in the very beautiful Smoky Mountains and Maggie Valley of North Carolina. As soon as they began to build momentum, Bob was made an offer he couldn’t refuse by the Department of Defense, drawing him out of retirement and his dream of growing Smoky Mountain Home Watch. So, they continued to service a small number of clients, slowly growing the business while he and Yolanda continued to work in the military world. Once they actually retired (again), Smoky Mountain Home Watch was off the back burner and off and running.

Bob has an extensive background in law enforcement and security operations. He is a retired Military Policeman and a security-based civil servant who holds many national certifications in residential and commercial crime prevention, physical security, and crime prevention through environmental design. Before Bob’s (final) retirement, he was a nationally Certified Protection Administrator.

Bob’s wife, Yolanda, who is also retired, was a licensed medical technician for more than 34 years, caring for our military service members. She brought a mother’s touch and homemaker’s experience to their services.

I want to thank the O’Briens for their commitment to the NHWA and the Home Watch industry.

Smoky Mountain Home Watch serves Haywood County, including Maggie Valley. They can be reached at (828) 400-6038 or Learn more at their website,

Congratulations, Bob and Yolanda!

As always, I wish you

Much success,

Jack Luber
Executive Director
