St. Cloud, FL (PRWEB) April 08, 2014
Even in Florida, with all the rental properties and people who live in the state part-time, Jeff and Bonnie Brasure couldn’t seem to find a reputable full-service company to care for their retirement home, while they were living in the Northeast.
So when the pair opted to move to Florida a little early, they decided to fill the gap and open TruBlue of St. Cloud, which just launched at the end of February.
TruBlue of St. Cloud specializes in providing complete house care, which includes maid services, home improvement, repair services, lawn care and more. TruBlue of St. Cloud serves St. Cloud, Kissimmee, Celebration, Poinciana, Lake Nona, and the southern and eastern parts of Orlando.
“We are a locally owned and operated business designed to help homeowners and business owners maintain their properties and their property values,” Jeff said. “We are here to help the seniors, active adults and busy professionals who need someone to help keep their property in great shape, without all the hassle.”
TruBlue also works with real estate professionals and people looking to sell their clients homes, but need to improve curb appeal and sell their properties quickly. TruBlue also works closely with General Contractors with final preparations to ready their newly built homes for the marketplace. Additionally, property Managers use the company to help them maintain their properties for their clients. Whether renting year round or short term vacation rentals, TruBlue is there to keep the homes in tip top shape. All TruBlue franchises are fully insured and bonded and all employees are background checked and certified.
Jeff is no stranger to running a business. He started his career in custom home building and then moved into the commercial fire and security business. He owned and operated his own commercial security business for eight years, before selling it to join Tyco International as a Sales Manager and then District Manager. Bonnie’s career has included an administrative role for 19+ years at the State of Vermont, Public Safety Department, which included the Emergency Management Agency, and Vermont State Police. She is also a Certified Nursing Assistant in the State of Florida.
“We bought a home in Florida a year ago, as a future retirement home, but a career change allowed us to move sooner. In the meantime though, we found it extremely difficult to find people to maintain and clean the house while we were gone. We asked the neighbors who they used and even chased trucks down the street to see what services they offered. It then became quite clear to us that there was a need for, and business opportunity, to combine home repair, maintenance, remodeling, maid service and lawn care. Furthermore, we wanted to make it easier for other families to find these services online, and through local advertisers,” Jeff said.
When they’re not running the business, Jeff and Bonnie are busy getting involved in the community. They’ve joined the Osceola County St Cloud Chamber of Commerce and are active in a local Business Networking, BNI group. They’re also planning to be involved in the area’s 4th of July festival and will be looking to support local charities as their business grows.
