Lake Chelan Home Watch earns Accredited Member status for 9th year


Lake Chelan Home Watch has earned Accredited Member status from the National Home Watch Association for the ninth year. The NHWA was formed in 2009 in order to establish and maintain the highest industry standards for Home Watch and absentee homeowner services throughout the United States and Canada (

Home Watch is a visual inspection of a home or property, looking for obvious issues, which means that it is a service that “keeps an eye on things” at your vacation or primary home while you are not in residence. Owner Ron Trickett’s successful career as a builder near Seattle for most of his adult life enabled him to buy a place at Lake Chelan. When he was able to relocate there full-time in 2013, he realized the need for Home Watch there was huge.

Because he experienced the anxiety of owning a second home – even with friends and neighbors checking on his place – he knew that he couldn’t be alone with the problems he was experiencing. So, he spoke with friends and neighbors at the lake, who encouraged him to start a Home Watch business. Because his own home had been left unlocked for weeks and another time a ruptured exterior water line spewed water for days until someone finally noticed and called him, he knew they were right. No more “neighbors doing favors.”

Ron’s 35 plus years of construction experience have given him a keen and knowing eye, so his attention to detail ensures that his clients’ homes are being looked after as if they were his own. Ron volunteers time to help support the Manson Chamber of Commerce, Habitat for Humanity, and other community projects.

As part of his personal commitment of giving back to his community, Ron is a past Board member of the Manson Chamber of Commerce and supports the Chamber’s mission of improving both the community and business environment of his hometown. Lake Chelan Home Watch serves the Lake Chelan area, as well as the Chelan, Manson, Entiat, Orondo, and Chelan Falls communities.
