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.

Jackson-Thomas to Lead Cedar Creek Lake Office


Natalie Jackson-Thomas Named Manager of Ebby’s Cedar Creek Lake Office

 

Ebby Halliday Realtors has appointed Natalie Jackson-Thomas sales manager of its Cedar Creek Lake Office. Chris Kelly, president and chief executive officer, recently made the announcement.

 

“Natalie brings a thorough understanding of all aspects of real estate, from marketing and lead generation to working effectively with clients through closing and beyond,” Kelly says. “Natalie truly appreciates the wide-ranging educational opportunities available to new and seasoned agents at the Ebby Halliday Companies.”

 

Jackson-Thomas will report to Malinda Howell, regional vice president and former co-manager of Ebby’s Cedar Creek Lake Office.

 

“Natalie joined Ebby’s Cedar Creek Lake Office as a sales associate because of our company’s stellar reputation, its exceptional training opportunities and the ongoing support we offer agents,” Howell says. “She believed Ebby Halliday was a place she could grow professionally and she has certainly done that. I am confident her background as an Ebby sales associate will benefit our Cedar Creek Lake Office in many ways.”

 

A longtime North Texan, Jackson-Thomas has been a Realtor since 2003 and a Cedar Creek Lake-area resident for the past three years. She enjoys the everyday challenges and celebrations that working in residential real estate brings.

 

“I love the variety involved in my real estate career,” Jackson-Thomas says. “One of the reasons I chose Ebby is the company’s appreciation for both new-agent education and continuing education for seasoned agents. I really look forward to helping our Cedar Creek Lake agents take their business to the next level.”

 

“Our clients are making one of the largest – if not the largest – purchases of their lifetime, so it’s imperative that we get to know them and develop strong working relationships,” she says. “I want our clients and agents to know that they can rely on me at all times.”

 

In her spare time, Jackson-Thomas enjoys exploring the Cedar Creek Lake area and spending time with family. She and her husband have four children and one grandchild.

 

“I am truly excited to lead the Cedar Creek Lake Office,” Jackson-Thomas adds. “I plan to build on our office’s extraordinary success by emphasizing the high standards of the Ebby brand as we continue to grow in the Cedar Creek Lake area and across North Texas.”
