Monitor Your Water Bill

Keep tabs on what your water bill usually runs, and if the bill is higher than normal, it could possibly be the result of a leak.

Keep Your Eye Out for Leaks

Especially toilets, faucets, and pipes. Water drops, drips, and trickles add up to wasted gallons.

Run Full Loads

If you are using an automatic dishwasher or washing machine, make sure you make the best use of the cycle. It’s also recommended to have your appliances looked at for overall maintenance.

Deep Soak Lawn

Only water the lawn if it needs water. If it does need water, water long enough for the water to soak into the roots. A light sprinkle of water only reaches the surface. Best to water lawn before 10:00 AM. If you have to water in the evening, watering between 4:00 PM – 6:00 PM will allow the grass time to dry before nightfall.

Add Mulch to Landscaping

Mulch can help hold moisture for trees and plants.

Cover Pools

Covering your swimming pool can aid in evaporation.

Sweep Exterior

Use a broom or leaf blower to clean driveway, sidewalks, and steps.


Kelly Raulston

“Reliable and Ready” REALTOR® since 2016. I was born in Monroeville, Pennsylvania, but was raised in Texas since 1997. When I found out we were moving to Plano, Texas, I remember looking forward to riding a horse to school and a brand-new pair of cowboy boots! Growing up in Plano prepared me to be competitive, quick, and to have a strong work ethic. I graduated from Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, Texas. Axe’em Jacks! That is where my love for East Texas began. The nature, warm smiles, football games, and community values can't be beat! I graduated summa cum laude with a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies. I was a middle school math teacher in Tyler, Texas. I met my husband, Travis, in Sunday school, and we have been married since September 2016. I love being a REALTOR® in East Texas! Relationships are genuine, the area is beautiful, and the market is rockin’! I am an involved REALTOR® to better the community. Some of the organizations I am involved with are: The Professional Development Committee, Texas Real Estate Political Action Committee, and Tyler Educational Networking Group. Some awards I have won were “The Hustle Award” in 2016, and “Rookie of the Year” in 2017. When I am not working with my clients, I like to spend quality time with my friends and family doing the following: running, target practice, read and participate in book club, and playing with my dachshund Greta.
