As a child in west Texas, I couldn’t wait to make the annual journey to “Cowtown”! The Fort Worth Fat Stock Show was the dream of every young farmer or rancher. Bring your finest stock, pray you would bring home a ribbon, and be the envy of all your family and friends. As years have come and gone, Fort Worth has gotten many nicknames and I love them all!
Queen of the Prairie Where The West Begins Panther City
Most recently – City of Cowboys and Culture, but the 2016 Fort Worth is so much more than a nickname!
With the opening of Red Team Real Estate on the famous Magnolia Avenue, there’s history all around! We want to share our knowledge of real estate (and Fort Worth) with you on your path to a bright future. The old mixed with the new gives countless opportunities to find unique spaces to live, work, and dream. My favorite homes are rich in history found in one-of-a-kind neighborhoods. My love of historic homes prompted me to recently become designated as a Historic House Specialist by Historic Fort Worth, Inc and the Fort Worth Association of Realtors.
Call me or stop by the new office and let’s find your favorite together!
It’s that time of year we all hate… Mosquito season. Luckily, Red Team has found a friend in Dave Russell who keeps us from being eaten alive (and chemical free) while enjoying our Texas summer.
When it comes to the Texas summertime, besides the heat, we have to deal with the irritation and frustration of mosquitoes. It’s impossible to get through dusk without making sure you’re prepared to be bitten by at least some of them. Or as we sometimes joke, the mosquitoes in Texas can be so big you have to make sure that they don’t pick you up and carry you off!
At our house, we are big time pool people and we love to entertain in our backyard. Now that the kids are out of school and the “pool is open for business,” we’re starting to barbeque outside and enjoy our deck and other backyard areas and don’t usually stop until at least when school starts again. Unfortunately, now is the time the mosquito problem is in full swing. When it comes to dealing with the problem, rather than spray DEET repellant on yourself and hope not to get bitten, we would all love to have a better solution. Enter Dave Russell, the Mosquito Detective, who has the problem solved.
With multiple prevention systems already installed here locally, Dave fights the problem by getting rid of the problem – and, even more importantly, he does this the natural way versus using the chemical approach that others use. You get to keep the bees, ladybugs, and butterflies that are good for the yard (without biting or carrying disease) while getting rid of the blood suckers that we have no use for in our yards. They sell, apply, and install an ALL natural, safe for kids, pets, and the environment mosquito repellent. They solve your mosquito problem with barrier yard sprays, backyard misting systems, and body spray-on for when you’re away from home.
With multiple sized systems and convenient solution refills, Dave has cost effective ways to resolve the mosquito mess in a way that preserves nature instead of destroying it. So if you have a pool, entertain outside every season, or just want to sit outside more without fear of the biting creatures that are everywhere, give him a call to discuss his option for enjoying outside more in Texas.
Call Dave to find out how he is saving our homes one backyard at a time…
Lots of exciting changes are happening at Red Team Real Estate. Our big move to the corner of Magnolia and Lipscomb in the explosive Fairmount neighborhood is at the top of the list. In addition
to the almost 3,000 square feet of office space, we’ve grown in numbers to a seasoned team of 8 ready to serve all your real estate needs – residential, leasing services, property management, and commercial.
We had a great turnout for our open house in early May. Many complimented our blending of the old and new. Unfortunately, Stella’s horse, Lady Blu, was unable to make an appearance (as you know, she’s got a busy horse schedule).
“We’re excited to be on Magnolia where it’s such a happening place,” said Red Team owner, Michael Mayes. “My favorite moment of the move happened when the guys came to put the signs on the window. Of course, it was almost 2 o’clock on the day of our open house so that might have had something to do with it, but I was still so proud.”
The new digs have ample office, conference, and gathering spaces with beautiful views of downtown Fort Worth and Magnolia Avenue. We’re looking forward to neighborhood events where Red Team can stay involved. If you’re in the area, please drop in, it would be great to see you!
