SAN ANGELO — A new business in San Angelo offers a variety of services for residential and commercial properties.

Derrick Drury opened Premier Property Services in November 2020 and runs the business on his own.

You might have seen signs around town about the company's Christmas light installations. 

Drury also offers house washes, roof washes, and concrete and wood cleaning.

For RV owners, Premier Property Services offers a professional-grade seal-and-coat service that not only repels water, but also insulates RV roofs. 

Drury took time to answer questions about his new business:

What should make your business stand out?

Our services are unlike any in the area and can give your home a new look without extreme costs. No matter the age of your home or type of exterior you have, we can make it all look new again. 

What is your background? Education, work experience?

I graduated from Angelo State University and majored in ag leadership and development. My career started as an ag teacher and county agent west of San Antonio. I always had an entrepreneur side that kept pulling me to work for myself, and soon I made the jump to do lot washes for car dealerships. Unfortunately, when COVID-19 hit in March, we lost our contracts due to travel restrictions and have changed our focus from cars to properties. It’s funny how things work out, but the transition was great for business.

Entrepreneurship can be a lonely place. What can help with that?

It can be very trying to own your own company, but a solid place for help is in a good partner in life and a positive attitude. Without either, it would be easy to throw in the towel. I also make sure to set goals. And when I achieve them, I celebrate it. 

What are some insights you learned when you started your business?

Networking with similar businesses and utilizing social media groups have been extremely beneficial. You can learn a great deal from others that have been in the same situation or dealt with the same issues when starting a business. Making those connections and networking play a huge role in bypassing any beginner mistakes that may occur otherwise. 

What motivates you to go to work every morning?

For me, it’s simple. My family is my motivation.
