Prep Your Fireplace for Winter


cozy fireplace

 

Cooler weather is here and it’s time to get your fireplace roaring again. Before you fill your home with the warmth and scent of a crackling fire, there are some precautions to take.

 

Check the Chimney — Have you called a chimney sweep recently? Experts recommend having your chimney cleaned once a year. A fireplace is only as good as its chimney, so inspect the exterior structure to make sure there are no issues.

 

Open the Flue — Ever started a fire and had the room fill with smoke? If you’re new to fireplaces, you may not realize that this happens when the flue is closed. Simply look up and reach for a chain or lever to open it up before you light the fire.

 

Vacuum — A quick vacuuming of the flue, smoke shelf and the surrounding hearth is the last step in preparation for fabulous fires in the coming months.

 

If you’re going to be without a fireplace this winter, we have plenty of homes that could have you curling up by the fire in no time. Below are a few. To see all of our incredible homes for sale, visit the award-winning ebby.com.

In addition to the honorees, this special event was attended by President and CEO Chris Kelly, Chief Financial Officer Ron Burgert, Executive Vice President and Director of Sales Offices Betty Misko, Vice President and Director of Marketing Randall Graham and Chairman Emeritus Mary Frances Burleson.

 

Everyone enjoyed spending time together, reminiscing about their time with the company, and sharing favorite memories. “This special occasion reminds us that our company has longevity and that staff members and sales associates enjoy being here,” says Kelly. “It’s also a great reminder that we are quite a family of caring people.”

Frisco Office Supports Scottish Rite for Children


 

Frisco Office Support Texas Scottish Rite

 

Members of Ebby’s Frisco Office recently presented a check for $92,000 to representatives of Texas Scottish Rite for Children. The check represents the proceeds of the office’s 10th-Annual Charity Golf Tournament, held September 25. One-hundred percent of the proceeds from the event benefit Texas Scottish Rite for Children in Frisco, a new ambulatory care center at the corner of Lebanon Road and the Dallas North Tollway.

 

“We are so incredibly pleased with the event and the results of this year’s charity golf tournament,” says Kristi Davis, sales manager of Ebby’s Frisco Office. “We’re proud to support Texas Scottish Rite for Children, and help aid in the care of children in Frisco and beyond.”

Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children cares for children with orthopedic conditions, such as scoliosis, clubfoot, hand disorders, hip disorders and limb length differences, as well as certain related neurological disorders and learning disorders such as dyslexia, regardless of the family’s ability to pay.
