Page Eight N/Warren Town and County News Thursday, April 1, 2010 ,40 ( Deb and John Marmon BUSINESS John And Deb Marmon Re/Max Realtors By Mary Lou Gray John and Deb Marmon have opened their Re/Max Realty business at 1220 Sunset Dr. in Norwalk. The Marmons are broker-owners and independent contrac- tors with Re/Max Realty. Re/Max is a nationally known company with offices across the United States, with some locations in other countries. All Re/Max offices are independently owned and operated. Future plans are to add agents to their location in Norwalk. Deb grew up and graduated from the Norwalk Schools and decided to return to the area in the early 1980's. She and her husband, John, previously worked with Iowa Realty and decided to open their own realty business in Norwalk. The couple has remodeled the area that was previ- ously occupied by Curves. They added a kitchen, con- ference room and offices in the newly decorated 1,500 square foot location. A broadcasting system is available from Re/Max to assist them in training agents needing further education in obtaining listings, closing deals and improving their negotiating skills. Deb stated, "Our clients' needs and wants are our first concern. If they are happy, we are happy. We are con- stantly studying and keeping up-to-date on changes in the real estate and mortgage market to advise our cli- ents." Deb feels the prices of homes is stabilizing now and there is a great inventory of homes available for their clients to choose from. She stated in this business you meet a lot of really neat people, from vendors to clients; it is a people business for sure. The Marmons will be holding an open house in April, so plan on visiting their new location. For more infor- mation call Deb or John at 981-0022.

Winfrey Chem-Dry is New Norwalk Business By Sally Huntoon Matt and Gretchen Winfrey moved their Winfrey Chem-Dry busi- ness from Burlington to Norwalk in December. The couple currently work out of their home with Gretchen serving as office manager and scheduling appointments for her hus- band. Their independently owned and operated car- pet and upholstery clean- ing serves both residential and commercial custom- ers in Polk and Warren Counties. Matt has earned his cer- tification though Harris Research/Chem-Dry in Logan, UT and also re- ceived his Institute of In- spection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC). Chem-Dry pro- vides 24-hour water dam- age restoration using ap- plied structural drying and also provides fire and smoke restoration. In ad- dition Matt does uphol- stery cleaning, tile and grout cleaning and special- izes in pet urine removal. The latter process is rec- ommended by the Na- tional Pediatric Associa- tion and by veterinarians, Winfrey said. In the near future, he also will offer leather cleaning and resto- ration. A Grand Opening spe- cial is being offered to Norwalk residents during the month of April. Cus- tomers who use Winfrey's service and who mention this newspaper article will receive a free can of spot remover. For a free esti- mate call 515-981-3034 or go to www.winfrey cd.com. A video, coupons and more information are available on the web site. Chem-Dry cleaning uses a fraction of the wa- ter of steam cleaning and uses a carbonating process that leaves carpets clean and dry in one to two hours rather than the usual days. The carbonating ex- traction process and solu- tions deep clean without using lots of soapy clean- ing chemicals. Matt noted that dirt, dust and aller- gens are lifted to the sur- face by carbonated bubbles and swept away rather Matt and Gretchen Winfrey with their sons, Jordan, 6, and Andrew, 2. than being forced deeper into the carpet as some other cleaning processes. Although the Winfrey family have not been Norwalk residents very long, they are already get- ting active within the com- munity. They have joined the Norwalk Area Cham- ber of Commerce and Wil- low Creek Baptist Church. Matt will be working with Jordan's soccer team through Norwalk Parks and Recreation Depart- ment this spring. Matt went to college at Southeast Community College in West Burlington and Gretchen went to Faith Baptist Bible College in Ankeny. During the summer they both vol- unteer at the Iowa Regular Baptist Children's Camp in Clear Lake. ,.
