AGENT OF THE MONTH: NICHOLAS BOURGEOIS

To kick of 2018, we present to you this month’s agent on the month…Nick Bourgeois or otherwise known as Nicky B! Hard working, personable, funny, loyal, honest, caring…the list goes on and on but what can we say, Nick is an all around guy! Houstonian for about 6 years, his favorite thing about this city is variety of incredible food and discovering new places to eat.

“I love ULR because its a company that gives me more then just a paycheck. Working for ULR allows me to do what I love to do and at the same time, working with the most amazing people that I have some to view as my family. This is the first time in my life that I found a company that truly looks out for me and gives me the tools I need to be the best I can be. I have to hand it to the owners, Jessica and Scott, for not only creating such an amazing environment but also being the best role models anyone could ever ask for. This is why I love ULR. “

An agent for Urban Leasing for almost 8 years, Nicky B loves to show off the Heights and his clients love him for it. I mean who doesn’t love this historic Houston neighborhood?
With his free time, you can find him playing fútbol or at a dog park with his two best buds, Teddy and Brooks.

“WINTERY MIX”

As Texans, we’re not use to this wintery mix and below 30 degree weather. We like it hot and whether we like to admit it, we probably prefer the humidity over this nonsense! If you don’t want to break the bank on the coldest month of season, we have a couple of tricks hidden up our sleeve to help you stay warm.

  • Caulk your windows-for $2 at Target, you can make sure that there are no leaks or holes that allow Jack Frost to sneak in
  • Draftstopper-this will aid with air coming in from gap between your door and floor, you can either buy one, make one or simply roll up a towel
  • Use your blinds/curtains-when its sunny out, open them and when its dark, close them
  • Rugs-lay down rugs on carpeted or tile floor, it’ll keep the heat from escape and it’ll be warmer to walk on barefoot
  • Shower with the door open-if you can, leave the door open to allow the steam to travel throughout your home
  • Bubblewrap-this is not the most attractive option, however putting bubblewrap on your windows can help cut heat loss
  • Ceiling fan-reverse your fan’s rotation to clockwise to push the cold air up, which will then mix with the rising heat
  • Invest in a programable thermostat-set your temperature according to your schedule. If you’re away at work, set your thermostat 7-10°F lower
  • Bundleup-the easiest solution
