7 Home Quotes to Help Make Your House a Home

“Home is not a place it’s a feeling”

home quotes

This is one of my favorite home quotes because it’s true for everyone. No matter how many times you move houses, the feeling of home remains since you are creating memories with your family and friends. For those who travel frequently, relocate for work, or like to switch up the city of choice for the year, you still make every place you stay in your home.

“Home is a place you grow up wanting to leave and grow old wanting to get back to”

home quotes

When you’re young, there’s nothing you want more than to grow up and move out of your childhood home. But as you get older, the comfort and warmth of being home is so satisfying and calming.

“Home wasn’t built in a day”

home quotes

As a new home owner it’s easy to get caught up in the thoughts of wanting to decorate and fill your new home up with new Knick knacks right away. But remember, your home isn’t built in a single day. It’s years and years of memories spent with family and friends, souvenirs brought back from traveling, and small things that remind you of stories that happened in the home that make a house feel like a home.

“There’s nothing more exciting than moving into a new home”

home quotes

Moving homes can be refreshing for so many reasons. Maybe you simply wanted a change of location, maybe you wanted to wash away all the pain from yesterday, maybe you want to meet new people in the neighborhood. Whatever your reason is, moving into a new home is one of the most exciting feelings in the world.

“Disconnect to connect”

home quotes

These days, it’s really easy to lose yourself in social media and staring at a screen. When you’re at home, disconnecting from the stressors of screens can really help you recharge your battery. Disconnecting from electronics while friends and family are over is also a great way to make new memories with those you love the most. This is one of the most important home quotes to live by in today’s day and age.

“There is something permanent, and something extremely profound in owning a home”

home quotes

When you are the owner of a home, you take great pride in maintaining it. There is so much comfort in knowing that you own a large building and that you can decorate it however you want. If you want to build out the deck in the back, go for it! If you decide your paint scheme is totally off and want to go with an entirely new scheme, nothings stopping you!

“If you buy stuff you love, regardless of era or price, your home will be a true reflection of you”

home quotes

It’s really easy to feel pressure in decorating you home a certain way based on TV shows and internet photos. But remember, as long as you love what you’re setting out on display, it will be a true reflection of you and your memories. And that’s something the people you know and love will appreciate.

In this series, I highlight the businesses I like to refer to my home buyers and sellers in the Pierce County area. This month I’m talking all things insurance with John Hayes, Farmers Insurance.

Vendor Recommendation Series: John Hayes, Farmers Insurance

I can’t say enough wonderful things about John Hayes, Farmers Insurance. First off, his packages are hard to beat. He’s very thorough in explaining every aspect of my home, auto, and business insurance plans. John is also extremely proactive, in that he makes sure he gives me a call if a plan is up for renewal. He also creates comparison charts to show me the value I’m receiving from Farmer’s verses competitors. So naturally, I recommend him all of my home buyers and sellers in the Pierce County area.

My clients also rave about him as an insurance agent. He is timely in his responses, and makes sure my clients have all their questions answered. I sell quite a few homes in Orting, WA where there are pockets of homes that require flood insurance. The ability to text John on the fly asking if a certain address requires flood insurance helps me set clear expectations to my clients from that start. This way my clients don’t get their heart set on a home that they then realize it out of their price range with the flood insurance included.

His goal is to help you find the best insurance plan that is tailored to your specific needs for your business or family. He prides himself on the relationships we build with our clients. He invites you to stop by for a cup of coffee to meet him and his team. He offer insurance products such as: Home Owners, Commercial, Auto, Life, and more!

Give him a call at (253) 961-6626 or visit his website, and he’ll be happy to answer any questions you might have.

In this series, I highlight the businesses I like to refer to my home buyers and sellers in the Pierce County area. This month I’m talking about Immaculate Home Inspection.

Vendor Recommendation Series: Immaculate Home Inspection

I started working with Todd Obergfell from Immaculate Home Inspection when I got my real estate license back in 2005. I can’t tell you enough how awesome he is to work with. He is extremely thorough in his home inspections and even provides his clients with the home inspection report before he leaves that day. He comes prepared with a printer and prints it out right in front of them. This allows the clients to review the report with Todd and ask any questions they may have. Both home sellers and home buyers are extremely satisfied with his work.

Todd works in the Pierce County area, but travels to wherever his clients are. Back when he was just starting out I remember he opened up our consultation with a card trick. He is a people oriented guy that is trust worthy and incredible at what he does.

Read below for some testimonials on Todd Obergfell from Immaculate Home Inspections.

This is Customer Service!

“Todd at Immaculate Home Inspection was fantastic.  He gave us a very detailed home inspection report.  He will climb up on the roof, get into your chimney, root around your crawl space, and find every small nasty place that needs to be checked out! He is very professional and friendly, and costs less than other inspectors in the area. I’ve called him at least 5 times since he inspected our home, and is always helpful and available to answer questions.  He’s even come out at least 3 times to check out some problems we’ve had, and even gave us a complimentary spot pest treatment because he missed it during the inspection. This is customer service!”

Better Than Well Done

“Todd and his team gets our HIGHEST recommendation! They arrived early and got right to work. His inspection was both meticulously thorough and spot on! He left us with a detailed report, photos and the knowledge that we had a complete understanding of the home’s condition that we were purchasing, both the great and the no so great. He found a few minor issues that we would never have caught which aided us in the negotiation process! It was a pleasure to have met and had him conduct our home inspection, we really cant say enough about this professional inspector. Thank You again Todd for a job better than well done!”

17 Years Experience

“We hired Todd to come out for a pre home inspection and could not have found a more enthusiastic professional!  With 17 years of experience he had a great attitude and really enjoys his work which shows with his energetic and immaculate work ethic from start to finish.  Very much recommend him to anyone looking for a home or pest inspection!”
