History of Dade Cresties Corp.
___________________En español bien pronto!___________________
We are three friends who grew up together sharing the love for reptiles for decades. Alfredo Agromayor, Bryant Rodriguez and David Delgado helped each other succeed in life and business.
Back in 2001, Alfredo had his first crested geckos a pet at home. He owned several leopard geckos before. All they ate were crickets and meal worms, which makes these reptiles very easy to maintain. David found these animals fascinating and Bryant showed them the potential of Dade Cresties. We represent the county where we live. The team is proud to say we are South Florida breeders and being part of Miami-Dade is a plus.
There is a lot to learn about this vibrant colors and energetic little monster! Unfortunately there wasn’t much information when Dade Cresties was founded because not many people knew about them. Then one day Alfy found an article written by Allen Repashy about the Crested Gecko titled “The Perfect Pet Gecko.” After extensive research, he also found Allen Repashy’s special “Crested Gecko Diet” from the SandFire Dragon Ranch on T-rex products; and immediately he was impressed about the possibility of raising a gecko on a Non-Insect diet and they would thrive. He was convinced that this indeed was the “Perfect Gecko.” From there our love for crested geckos blossomed. Bryant and Alfy through the years purchased many different ones and attempted a few times at actually breeding them but they had no success. David was always into reptiles and loved animals. He had experience dealing with several different species of reptiles since he worked at a Pet Shop for some time. David didn’t actually own his first gecko until 2013, named Butterfingers.
In 2012, we met a good friend and mentor Eslin Jimeranez from Crazy Red Gecko and purchased a few morphs from him. Eslin took us under his wing and showed us everything we needed to know on how to breed, incubate, and properly care for them. If it wasn’t for him we probably would have never been able to created this family and been able to achieve having all the beautiful lines we have today. Eslin is the founder and operator of Crazy Red Geckos and we are proud to say we have him by our side doing business with us. This is one of his geckos, follow him on Facebook Crazy Red Gecko by Eslin
In 2013, after picking up two beautiful extreme babies from Crazy Red Geckos, we decided to come up with a name that would represent Miami Dade but also have to do with Cresties. We contacted Livan Garcia from Grasshopper Plus, and within minutes he had an idea on what to do. When we saw our logo for the first time, we knew that this was going to become something great! None was better than Dade Cresties, I knew that was my name and logo since the first time I saw the design (expressed Alfy, our CEO). We came up with a name that everyone can remember easily and also people would relate to Miami Dade. This was the beginning for a small businesses that has been the income source for more than three families. We are committed to never stop growing to doing better to society. Help us make our dream real to bring jobs back to the United States. We support veterans, minorities and young entrepreneurs like us.
It is now 2015 and Dade Cresties Corp grew even bigger when last year Jany Caso started working with us as the Chief of Operations. We are going to hustle to show the new generations that hard work really pays off. Being in business means taking hard decisions and seeing the long term with hope and faith. We have been able to establish Dade Cresties network and with a good amount of products available to the new reptile owner or to an experienced herpetologist. But its not going to stop there, we are now working on making Dade Cresties more than just geckos and reptiles. Screen Printing is a big part of us but that is another story! 🙂
Working ProcessOnly Three STEPS
1. Check for eggs and see how your gecko looks 2. Clean through the entire enclosure 3. After changing paper towels, place food inside!
Proper Nutrition and Comfortable Enclosure
Prepare your food before handling your pets and make sure you have handy all necessary supplies. Keeping up a strict feeding routine you can guarantee a long life for your gecko. Enclosures for Cresties shouldn't be to small or to big. See our Care Sheet for proper enclosure for your gecko!
Enjoy and Watch them Grow
Go ahead, play with your gecko. This is the best opportunity for you to watch closely their skin. Don't put them close to you eyes, they like jumping.
You place an order with us and we make sure one of us stay in touch with you during the entire delivery. Dade Cresties is committed to deliver quality. We stay behind our geckos and shirts.
If you are looking for high quality geckos and the very best customer service, you will find it at Dade Cresties! Alfredo truly has a passion for these animals and is so helpful with educating his customers about how to care for them. We first contacted him because my son (then 6 years old) wanted a gecko for his birthday. Having never owned a reptile, Alfredo helped us to learn about Crested geckos and made sure to follow up with us after our purchase to answer all of our questions. We now have 3 crested geckos from Dade Cresties and are extremely happy with the additions to our family! I would highly recommend Dade Cresties to anyone looking to purchase a gecko- they are the best!!
The Ortiz Family
I own only one gecko from Dade Cresties, he is very red and so far after 6 months, my gecko has become the center of attention around my house. We love Boo and let's just say Alfy produces the best Halloween crests!
Yo fui su primer cliente, cuando Alfy me dijo que ya los estaba vendiendo quise uno inmediatamente. Me encantan los geckos y ahora tengo una pecera con mas de cinco, son animales lindos y muy tranquilos. Estoy muy feliz de lo grande q estos muchachos han echo Dade Cresties, dale q ustedes pueden!!!
Cuando me dijeron de estos muchachitos de Hialeah que estaban haciendo su propio negocio, me embulle y le compre un gecko a mi hija, ella lo ama y yo disfrute mucho hacer negocios con Alfredo Agromayor, muy buena persona e increíble compania!
