Regular maintenance will keep your home in tip top shape and help

keep those large expensive repairs away.

  • Check your home for water leaks
  • Review your fire escape plan with your family
  • Make sure there are working nightlights at the top and bottom of all stairs
  • Have a heating professional check your heating system every year
  • Replace your furnace filter
  • Run all gas-powered lawn equipment until the fuel is gone
  • Have a certified chimney sweep inspect and clean the flues and check your fireplace damper
  • Remove bird nests from chimney flues and outdoor electrical fixtures
  • Inspect and clean dust from the covers of your smoke and carbon monoxide alarms
  • Make sure the caulking around doors and windows is adequate to re duce heat/cooling loss
  • Make sure that the caulking around your bathroom fixtures is adequate to prevent water from seeping into the sub-flooring

Before going into real estate in 2001, I worked in the medical field. Found it very rewarding helping others and decided to make a switch and help those, who want to achieve the "American Dream". As a homeowner, I know the importance of home ownership and nothing gives me more pleasure than to place those keys into the hands of a new homeowner. I look forward to helping you, with all your real estate needs.
