Lone Star ASHI Gala Christmas Party

The Annual Lone Star ASHI Christmas Party has it’s third round at Craig and Deidre Lemmon’s home, and we couldn’t have had a more lavish backdrop for our evening of fellowship. It was a grand evening, as usual. The LSASHI Members who could not attend were missed. 15284897_10211370996541348_3832232344352188451_n

State Fair Of Texas Home Inspectors Appreciation Day

A wonderful time was had by all attendees of the inaugural Inspectors Appreciation Day at the State Fair of Texas, and it was unanimously agreed upon that this shall become an annual event. We h14725498_10210787535475186_6691026385482557487_nope to see home inspectors or all stripes and affiliations at the first annal event this coming September.



We had it made in the shade at the Texas Association of Realtors (TAR) State Conference Expo. Our booth was in a choice location, right in front of the entrance/exit. One
could not enter or leave without seeing the Lone Star ASHI booth. Our booth graphics, volunteers and marketing items were outstanding as always, drawing in many TAR Expo attendees. And we had great neighbors; the Texas Real Estate Political Action Committee (TREPAC) were there next door. Win-Win! Our booth was manned by LSASHI Members Pat Evers, Craig Lemmon, Don Stafford, and Bud Rozell; along with Pat’s and Craig’s spouces (thank you). The Booth was set up the day before and then the island was thoroughly explored. A great gulf coast getaway. Dinner at Gadio’s followed the Expo. Lone Star ASHI had a large time meeting and greeting Realtors from all over the state.
