New company keeps watchful eye for homeowners

By Pamela A. Keene 
What do you do when you just can’t get out to the lake to check on your second home? Or what if a weather situation happens while you’re away on vacation?
 David Bell and his new company Red Ground have the answer. Providing regular inspections for second and vacation homes on Lake Lanier, Bell helps property owners monitor property. 
“We want to put the vacation back into your vacation home,” Bell said. “Many people own second homes on the lake and they don’t have time to check on their property regularly. And many of clients are seniors who could use an extra hand to keep an eye on things.” 
Clients contract with Red Ground for regular property inspections and other services. Bell will meet contractors on site to expedite maintenance and repairs, he’ll monitor and move docks to keep up with lake levels or just come by regularly to check on things.
“We often get a call to open up someone’s home or boat for the weekend, stock them with groceries or fill the boat with gas,” he said. “And we’ll even come back after they leave and clean up, cover the boat and make sure everything’s safe and secure.” 
Bell’s diverse background led him to start Red Ground. In addition to having owned landscape company, worked as a corporate fund-raiser for museums and spent time in the no-profit arena, he rebuilt his home on Berkeley Lake.
He also has a network of contractors to compliment his skills for client projects, ranging from electricians to HVAC and plumbing.
“My goal is help our clients feel that they’re protecting their investment and have peace of mind,” said. “We want to put the fun back in owning a lake home.”
