We told you about the Castle Keeper drama up in Murphy (Collin County), where a homeowner named Aji Philip hired Castle Keepers and CK put tenants in her home, this home, to tend it. They were brothers, the Burgess brothers, 27 year old Drew, and 23-year old Shaun. We were told by Kenny Raupple, owner of Castle Keepers, that one of the brothers Burgess sort of pulled a fast one on him by changing the contract he signed to give themselves more time in the casa before vacating, and brought in their dad, Nathan, and a dog. The whole ordeal was very messy for the homeowner. And it seems like the dad, Nathan, is more of a child than his sons. Last week, July 11, we were told the police, a locksmith and a couple of “bouncers” headed over to 720 Paint Creek Drive in Murphy to legally evict Nathan Burgess and his pit bull. Bud Gillett over at Channel 11 tells us he didn’t exactly want to go peacefully. In fact, Gillett said the family
nut patriarch, Nathan Burgess, reportedly left his possessions in the yard and moved into his car. Burgess was cited for (literally) illegal dumping, then finally arrested for disorderly conduct. Philip is still ticked off, can you blame her?
Recall last week’s drama up in Murphy (Collin County) where a homeowner named Aji Philip hired Castle Keepers and CK put tenants — named the Burgess brothers, 27 year old Drew, and 23-year old Shaun, into the home. Though youngsters, these fellows had been “home managers” before in three different Castle Keepers homes and had references. We were told by Kenny Raupple, owner of Castle Keepers, that one of the brothers Burgess sort of pulled a fast one on him by changing the contract he signed to give themselves more time in the casa before vacating, and more guests. Like their Papa. And a pet pit bull. The whole ordeal was very messy for the homeowner. Philip, who tried going to police but because it was a civil matter, had to wait for the court system to do its thing, after she got tasered. Ouch. Sometimes waiting for the court system can be very frustrating, I know.
We folks in the biz have been watching the Colin County “Staging Family Eviction “ story with a lot of interest and even more disbelief. First of all, Castle Keepers has a stellar reputation in the industry. They’ve been putting reputable families in on-the-market homes for 21 years and helped thousands of home sellers not only move their houses, but move them for a great deal more money than if those same houses had been sitting on the market empty. Castle Keepers is a company that screens families to live in a home while it is for sale and vacant to not only stage it, but protect it. Nothing good becomes of an empty, lonely home. Studies prove a staged home sells faster and for more money. The concept of using a “staging family” started over two decades ago. Dallas home stagers often refer clients to Castle Keepers when the sellers or agent cannot afford to stage a vacant property. We trust them, and we think they do a great job. What went wrong? I called up Kenny Raupple, the owner of Castle Keepers, and got the inside story. Continue reading
