Houston: “if you build it , they will come !”

Exciting news is happening around town. While searching online for recent news articles,  I came across a big project here in our beloved city of Houston. I am sure if you commute past downtown or watch the news you have heard about the construction site near George R. Brown Convention Center.  The article below highlights a great background of the project and pictures credited to Houston Chronicle, staff Gary Coronado. Project is to be completed by next Labor Day!   Real Estate Convention center upgrades designed to improve the experience Improvements on east side of downtown to add appeal for residents, workers and visitors By Nancy Sarnoff September 21, 2015 Updated: September 21, 2015 11:13pm From a balcony off the George R. Brown Convention Center on Monday, downtown officials gestured toward the 1,000-room Marriott Marquis under development next door and at the street below them, soon to become a much more inviting space, they said, with new restaurants, seating and oversized umbrellas providing shade. These improvements are part of the $1.5 billion worth of public and private development work underway on the east side of downtown, which is being revamped to make it more appealing to residents, workers and visitors. Officials from Houston First, a quasi-public agency that manages Houston’s convention facilities, toured with a small group through the area Monday, showing off some of the changes specific to the Brown center at a cost of $175 million: A plaza and at least four restaurants at the front of the building, with a raised outdoor seating area called “the wharf,” a nod to the building’s nautical theme.

Website Launch

 Importance of Launching A Website By: Joe Trevino Welcome and thank you for taking the time to visit our website! For the past two years my wife Vanessa and I have have been operating Home Turf Texas Landscape & Design without a website.  At first this wasn’t such an issue, we were considered a small family business the first year with only a handful of commercial and residential properties under our belt. We thought in this day in age with more consumers moving toward social media to find what they need and want, we wouldn’t have a problem growing our landscaping company by solely using social media as promotional outlet. We were wrong! Social media is a great way to keep your customers informed much more quickly and let our clients know of any great deals we may have for the month. We currently use Twitter to get instant landscape industry news and share our campanies most recent projects and local events. Our Facebook business page is a great way for us  to connect with  Business Partners, Friends, Family and the Houston Community. Our Instagram and Google+ Business Page have also been very active over the past couple years, and is a great tool for before and after shots of projects. The reality check came when our company began to grow rapidly. Not a bad thing to grow in just 2 short years, but we needed a website to accommodate industry high demand for service and at the same time show our consumers our landscaping work in beautiful pictures. We also needed a website to let people know we are here, we...
