Client Spotlight: Mosquito Detective

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…

Client Spotlight: Ronald McDonald House of Ft. Worth

Great organizations deserve to be recognized! Long time relationships that you cherish are to be professed! So…When it comes to longtime relationships, I have been involved with the Ronald McDonald House of Fort Worth for the last decade and have served on the Board of Trustees for the last four years. It is a heartfelt thing for me and I want to tell you about it.

The RMHFW has been in Fort Worth since 1981 and has helped many families. If you go to the their website, and click on the Who We Are tab you will read:

“For families of critically ill children, the Ronald McDonald House of Fort Worth is a place to grab a hot meal and catch a few hours of sleep after an all-night bedside vigil. It’s a place for refuge and solace with comfortable beds, private bathrooms, laundry and dining facilities, and a well-equipped game room. The Ronald McDonald House of Fort Worth provides a home-away-from-home for families, and allows parents and siblings to stay together while remaining close to a child receiving life-saving medical care in area hospitals. Most of all, the Ronald McDonald House of Fort Worth is a place where families can find comfort and compassion from volunteers, staff and other families faced with similar challenges.”

As a complete believer in the mission, it is truly the house that love built, the house where all the families with critically ill children can focus on their child’s needs in a time of emotional upheaval and not worry about the day-to-day stuff that tends to distract and take their time instead of being able to focus on what needs to be done…taking care of the child in need.

But of course this all takes effort. With opportunities to donate (over 90 percent of the funding comes from you and me, corporate donors and foundations) as well as the volunteers, everyone can find some way to help.

The upcoming sold out event which is always a favorite is the Wild Game Dinner. A chance to eat way too much food (and I always do!) and bid on fun things that help the house support the families in need. Even though families staying at RMH are not required to pay anything to be there, we do ask them to donate if they can to pay for the $95/night costs that are incurred. This event is one of two big annual fundraisers.

The big Spring event is Ronald’s Roadhouse. Food yes, but also big time music! The inaugural event this past April was a big hit with everyone and completely sold out. Sponsors are already trying to see how they can be part of this coming May’s next iteration.

No matter the time of year, the house is in need of items from the Wish List that are as simple as toilet paper and paper towels, to sponsoring of the electricity, or simply the cost of one family’s night to stay at the house.

Now, Ronald McDonald is important to me because I am personally involved. But I am a firm believer that those of us who have found success need to give back to the community–our community. Whether it is a Ronald McDonald House near you or some other non-profit that you feel passionate about, please find some way to give back from the fruits of your labors and help someone in need.

By the way, one of the staff members is Mac, the Australian Labradoodle, who is the Director of Love and Comfort! How can it not be a cool organization to be involved with when you have a dog on the team!

Client Spotlight: Captain Stu

This month’s client spotlight is a favorite. Meet Captain Stu!

“Being new to the rental business this past year, I knew I wanted to work with a company that could help me understand the process, as well as take care of all of the day to day operations. As a pilot, I am not available to answer or return phone calls promptly due to unpredictable work hours, so being referred to Red Team was the relationship that I needed to manage a property and find a reliable tenant.

With their expert knowledge and personalized service, not only did they help me understand my options with various property types, but also how to make a determination on what property was likely to generate the best return for my money.

They make it easy, and are a local Texas company that understands the DFW metroplex and it’s numerous markets well. Their staff s friendly, helpful, and have exceeded my expectations with my first property. They even handled the renovation floor to ceiling with quality vendors and developed a positive relationship with my first tenant.

Red Team made the process so stress free, that one year later, I am excited they are helping me find another property under their management.

Red Team is a Real Estate and Property Management relationship that I would recommend.”

Best regards,

Captain Stu
