  1. Check Your Furnace/Air Filter

    Depending on the size of your house and whether you have a pet, you may need to swap out your furnace filter as often as once a month. The only way to know for sure is to check your filter every 30 days or so.

  2. Survey Your Foundation

    A crack or opening in your home’s foundation provides easy access for rats, mice and other unwanted pests to enter your home. That’s why it’s worth carefully surveying your home’s foundation for any possible openings.

  3. Test Your Soil

    A soil test can give you an idea of what kinds of nutrients your soil lacks and which kind of fertilizer you should be using on your lawn. It’s especially important to do if you’ve moved to a new house, want to expand your garden or notice that your plants aren’t growing well.

  4. Test Your Water

    A water test can give you peace of mind that your water is free of harmful substances such as lead, bacteria and more. This is especially important if you have a private water supply, because your water isn’t regularly monitored and tested like public water supplies.

  5. Tackle that Junk Drawer (or Room)

    Create order out of chaos by decluttering and organizing your junk drawer (or room) once and for all.

  6. Clean Neglected Areas

    When was the last time you cleaned your dryer vents? Or your refrigerator coils? Cleaning jobs like these aren’t usually top of mind, but doing them will keep your home looking and running better long-term.

  7. Do a Curb Appeal Project

    Boosting your home’s curb appeal will give you newfound pride in your home and may even increase your home’s value. Some easy curb appeal projects include painting the front door, planting some attractive fast-growing plants, installing path lighting and placing welcoming outdoor furniture on your front porch.

  8. Up Your Fire Safety

    Start by properly testing and maintaining your smoke alarms. Then buy fire extinguishers and keep them in the right place.

  9. Stop Drafts in Their Tracks

    There’s probably at least one door or window in your house that’s letting in a draft. Those openings make your home chilly and increase your energy costs.

  10. Cut Your Home’s Carbon Footprint

    Making an eco-friendly change will help the environment, and it might also help your budget if it reduces your energy costs.

My focus is to best understand the goals and visions of my clients, ensuring all decisions are made with a wealth of information and the necessary tools for a successful, rewarding experience.
