    Meet the Owner

    • Owners of West Omaha TruBlue, Scott and Terri Dingfield

      Scott and Terri Dingfield

      Scott: From a young age, I wanted to be involved in building or repairing houses, but my education and professional experience took me in another direction. I graduated from the University of Nebraska Omaha with a degree in public relations and business. From that point, I worked in lawn care and landscape construction with Lanoha Nursery, customer service for Enterprise Rent-a-Car, led the marketing efforts at Grace University and then spent the bulk of my career, nearly 15 years, leading the marketing and innovation efforts for Home Instead Senior Care’s global network. After Home Instead, my childhood interests came full circle as I started a company focused on helping older adults, and their families, during their home downsize and transition process as we purchased and renovated their homes. I also became a licensed contractor. Terri: My dad passed away in early 2016 after a series of strokes and a six-month end-of-life journey. During this time my siblings and I helped my mom make health and financial decisions and maintain their home. But in the mix of all that, we just wanted to spend time with my parents – quality time, not get stuff done time. Exiting that season, I felt strongly that I wanted to help older adults and their families manage all the “stuff” so they could experience the benefit of a stress-free time together. I was excited to discover the opportunity with TruBlue Total House Care so we could do exactly that – help busy families with their chore list (and their parents’ list) and help maintain and update the homes of older adults so they could continue living at home. Personally, I am blessed to work with my husband Scott. We celebrated 20 years of marriage in 2019 and we enjoy time with our high school age daughters. Professionally, I graduated from Grace University with a degree in business management. I worked at Mutual of Omaha Fund Management Company, was Director of Admissions at Grace University, a stay-at-home mom, had part-time roles with a local start-up indoor farmer’s market and served in a recruiting and admissions role at Lifegate Christian School. Why Start TruBlue in Omaha? We started TruBlue in Omaha because it perfectly meshes our desire to help older adults and their family members during the aging process with our interest in working on houses. From 2001 to this point, Scott’s professional focus has been to understand the concerns and meet the needs of individuals 65+ and their adult children. Nearly 90% of all Americans want to age at home, but that conversation usually ends up with two questions families wrestle with: Will mom/dad need extra care to remain independent in their home? Can mom/dad continue to take care of the house itself and maintain a safe living environment? Some families decide it’s time to sell the house and move their loved one into a care community. Other families figure out how to care for their loved one at home either on their own or through private duty home care. When this happens, all the energy goes into their loved one’s care (rightly so), and what happens in some situations is the house itself is neglected and starts to deteriorate. For older adults, it is our dream to bring them relief and peace of mind by maintaining their house and property so small problems don’t become costly fixes. For their family members, we know we can save them time spent on house projects so they can use their evenings and weekends on family time instead of tool time

    Trendy Renovations to Boost Property Value
    Every property's value can be boosted with the right renovations! Whether your home is from the 1950s or from the 2010s, it's important to consider what you can do to improve how much it's worth. These are the top renovations that are trending this year and why they can add so much value to your home. Update Your Siding Your siding needs to be updated for buyers to even consider walking into your home. Board and batten steel siding has been a hot topic in recent years, as buyers want siding they can have faith in and love the large range of options of color. If your siding is older, discolored, cracked, or warped, it's a good idea to update it before your home hits the market. Attic Bedroom Conversions This update has become incredibly popular within the last couple of years and can add up to fifty thousand dollars to the value of your home, depending on where you are. Attic spaces are generally underutilized, and by turning them into extra bedrooms, you can create more space for a larger family to move into. This can be time-intensive, but make sure you make everything out of sturdy and predictable materials. If you put in a cheap ladder or inexpensive spiral stairs, buyers won't feel safe turning this into a bedroom they actually use. Increase Energy Efficiency Energy efficiency is on the minds of every buyer. Nobody wants to overpay to keep their home at a temperature they’ll enjoy, so it’s a good idea to invest in ensuring your home traps in the temperatures and runs as efficiently as possible. One of the largest ways to do this is to install polyiso exterior wall insulation. Regardless of what siding you have, this insulation will block out the weather and keep the interior of your home at a comfortable temperature. It's also a great idea for homeowners to invest in getting smart thermostats. These are a must for almost every property and will keep your home at a comfortable temperature at all times. Not only will you be able to control your home's temp no matter where you are in the world, but you can also keep an eye on trends and figure out what your usage may be higher in some weeks. Updating Old Windows How old are your windows? Older windows aren't the best for your HVAC system and will make your energy bill skyrocket. If you have older windows, and a couple of them are out of date, but they're all generally functional, consider a minor repair or update. Replacing portions of your windows will save you money while still ensuring your windows look like a matching set that makes sense together. Keep Moisture Away Moisture is no property’s friend. Water can cause rot, mold, flooding, and more, so it’s important that you take the time to guide it away from your house. You can do this through outdoor drainage and landscape drainage grates, by planting a rain garden, or even by adding a sump pump. Buyers are terrified of their homes flooding, for a good reason, so invest in making your property as flood-proof as possible. Minor Remodels Small remodels can change everything while adding the highest return on investment you can find! Instead of updating your entire kitchen, or doing a full bathroom remodel, take on small portions of these rooms and update those instead. Pay attention to how much money you spend, and avoid putting too much time and work into these while still making them look good. A full remodel brings in a far lower return on investment, so it’s important to straddle that line. Add Visual Intrigue Visual intrigue is a must! This mighty tool can convince anyone that a property is worth more than it may actually be and gives you a chance to guide buyers' eyes to what you want them to see. From clever use of a white shiplap wall in an otherwise boring space to fun tile in the bathroom that creates a zen and spa feeling, have a little fun with your property. Avoid going too overboard or severe since this might scare buyers away. Create Outdoor Spaces Outdoor spaces are king when you're trying to build value into your property! This means adding spaces where you can gather with friends and family and room for you to feel like you can relax for a while. These spaces can be anywhere from a deck to an exterior kitchen or a lounging area around a fire pit, but be aware of how much money you're spending. Avoid spending more than 10% of your home's current value on the lawn, or you may struggle to recoup it. Your Property Is Valuable Whether this is your first property or your fifth, it's important to keep up with the trends. Follow some of these renovations to watch your property's value skyrocket in no time! For any home updates that you need help tackling, your local TruBlue is the perfect crew.

    4 New TruBlue Locations!

    4 New TruBlue Locations!

    October 12, 2022
    TruBlue is experiencing record growth this year. In the past quarter we have welcomed 5 new owners into our TruBlue family. Our new locations span as south as St. Petersburg Florida, as north as Des Moines Iowa, and as far east as Colorado Springs. We are also excited for the many new locations that are currently under development. The first location to open this quarter is TruBlue of Colorado Springs and North Colorado Springs. These locations are owned and operated by Obie Pilkington. Pilkington is a veteran who served a 20 year career in the Military, and was ready to become his own boss. Near the end of his Army career, Pilkington was battling cancer and saw first hand how many seniors and veterans need better house care. When he found TruBlue it was the missing puzzle piece. He soon signed with us and he's excited to support his local community. Our second TruBlue is Winter Garden, located in the greater Orlando Florida area. Michael Holton is the proud owner of this location. His prior background was in project management with IBM. As a busy family man, Holton saw exactly how crazy homeownership can be. There’s always a different person for every job, and tracking down the right guy is a tricky job. With TruBlue, Holton knew he could use his operations background to be the one-stop solution for home maintenance in his community. In St. Petersburg Florida, Spencer and Angela Brooks have opened their first TruBlue. This married couple saw first hand the desire for age-in-place home modifications. This desire sparked their initial interest in TruBlue. Their business will officially open in early November. This power duo will be a great edition to the sunshine state and is looking forward to making a positive impact. Our last team to open their own TruBlue is JD Nelson & Scott Edwards in West Des Moines, Iowa. These two are not strangers to being business partners. In fact they already own two successful businesses of their own in Home Inspections, and Mold & Odor Removal. TruBlue provides extra services that their previous operations were lacking. With their enhanced range of services, and previous ownership experience, we expect to see big things out of our first Iowa franchise. If you're thinking of opening a TruBlue, the total investment estimate for a TruBlue Total House Care franchise ranges from $65,050–$91,400.
