Consumer Team Welcomes Tax Attorney Nick Nemeth

(DALLAS-FT. WORTH, TEXAS – Consumer Team News)   Consumer Team host Pete Thomson today announced that Dallas-Ft. Worth tax attorney Nick Nemeth will be appearing as a regular contributor on The Consumer Team.  Nemeth, who helps consumers resolve IRS tax issues, will join Thomson for a series of educational broadcasts.   Regarding the addition of Nemeth to The Consumer Team, Thomson said “We’re very excited to welcome Nick Nemeth to The Consumer Team.  He represents best practices in the category of tax resolution.”

The Consumer Team broadcasts with Nick Nemeth will address common consumer mistakes made in tax resolution, according to Thomson.   He added, “The first and often biggest mistake consumers make is calling one of the national advertisers that make big promises in their radio advertising.  Oftentimes consumers pay big retainers and don’t even speak with an attorney.  Nick Nemeth is a local, DFW tax lawyer who has a very good reputation for helping consumers resolve IRS tax issues.  We recommend Nick for any consumers needing to deal with an IRS issue.”

The addition of Nemeth to The Consumer Team is consistent with the program’s commitment to the Dallas-Ft. Worth Market.  According to Thomson, large consumer services that cover multiple markets can’t offer focus or quality.  He added, “The big consumer sites that cover multiple markets are the new yellow pages.  If a business owner can fog a mirror and has a valid credit card, they’ll be recommended.  In our view, that’s not a reliable method for the consumer.  On The Consumer Team I’ve chosen to take a different approach.   We want to be very effective for North Texas.   The only way to truly accomplish that is to stay local.  I know all of our sponsors personally.  Some of these folks, I’ve known for over a deade.  There’s no way I could achieve that kind of focus in more than one market.”

The Consumer Team airs Saturdays from 6-8 PM (Central) on CBS Radio’s 1080 KRLD in Dallas-Ft. Worth.  The Consumer Team with Pete Thomson is produced by McQ Media Inc, Dallas, Texas.


Consumer Team: Ventana is Changing Retirement in Dallas

(DALLAS-FT. WORTH, TX – Consumer Team News)   The corner of Northwest Highway and Central/Hwy 75 is about to change in a big way. Ventana, a luxury high rise retirement community, is being built at this location by Buckner Retirement Services.   The Consumer Team with Pete Thomson is airing a series of educational segments on retirement in DFW and the new Ventana.

Pete Thomson, host of The Consumer Team, says  he considers Ventana to be the future of retirement living. Thomson said, “People are very impressed with the the luxury of Ventana.  It will be a stunning community with beautiful views of the Dallas skyline.   There are some other major benefits.  First, Buckner Retirement Services is building Ventana.  Buckner is one of the most trusted names in North Texas.   Beyond that, Ventana will be a continuing care retirement community which means that residents will have access to many healthcare and medical services on-campus at Ventana, and at rates that are very predictable.   Over the span of a person’s retirement, we believe that Ventana’s pricing model delivers much more for the dollar and gives consumers more control over their budgets during retirement.”

The Consumer Team will feature different aspects of Ventana during on-air interviews on 1080 KRLD Radio.   Thomson said, “Our interviews on retirement and Ventana will be very educational.  We’ll be talking to the leadership of Ventana and Buckner Retirement Services.   We’ll also feature several people who will be among the first to move to Ventana when it’s complete.”

The Consumer Team with Pete Thomson is broadcast Saturdays from 6-8 PM on CBS Radio’s 1080 KRLD.   The Consumer Team is produced by McQ Media Inc, Dallas, Texas.

Thomson said that the CISQUA Award was created to promote best practices in the Dallas-Ft. Worth business community.   He added, “On The Consumer Team our goal is to connect educated consumers with the best businesses in North Texas.   By bringing CISQUA to Dallas-Ft.

The Consumer Team airs on CBS Radio’s 1080 KRLD Radio on Saturday from 6-8 PM (Central).   The Consumer Team is produced by McQ Media Inc.
