7. The Command Station – Every homeowner needs their one!  It’s a great spot to keep track of schedules, paperwork, and food for the week.  To decorate it, us it as a great spot to showcase a household motto.  We particularly love the locker boxes at the bottom.

8. Stone Shoe Storage – North Texas has experienced a rainy year!  Save your floors from all the wet shoes with a DIY pebble storage box!  It catches all the water and mud, then cleans like a charm.

12. Powerful Plants – Many people use plastic plants to decorate their homes.  They’re harder to kill, but require constant dusting and don’t contribute anything more than pretty looks.  Instead, try using some of the live plants listed in the link above.  They’ll keep your house looking great while they filter the air for you!

Feature Team Member- Becca Rogers

Categories: Blog | Posted: August 17, 2016

 

We sat down and had a chat with the fabulous Becca Rogers today.  She’s the newest member of our sales team and represents some exciting changes for us.  But we’ll get to that in a minute.

11892085_10204326523672809_245729406581719900_nThere are a few things you should know about Becca before we get to her position here.  She is an avid reader.  Any book will do, but cliché love stories and Harry Potter books are her niche.  When she’s not reading, you’ll likely find her coming to the rescue for some lucky pooch.  Like many in the office here, she has an open heart and loves her fur babies!  She’s a true DFW native who loves rooting for our Rangers, so Bark at the Park is basically the best thing ever for her (especially if she can swim there while reading the new Harry Potter book).  She shares these passions with her fiancé, Tyler, and stepson, Ryder.

We love her for all of these things, but we chose her for a couple of other passions.  Specifically, her love for customer service and for home building.  At her last workplace, Becca got a taste of 24/7 customer service. She loved it. She really enjoyed being available to participate in the exciting process alongside clients. Her passion for home-building comes from her experience as a child.  Her father was a home-builder, and she loved to visit the model homes and find out how things were made.  These fit well into our needs for a New Home Specialist.  She’s the friendly voice on the phone when you call in asking about a new home. We are always striving to be better, and this position is one way we make sure you have the best home-buying experience with us.

Until Next Time,

-Rebekah
