Honolulu, HI (PRWEB) August 15, 2004
The free service begins approximately two to three weeks following a home buyerÂs purchase and move in. A highly trained and licensed contractor, specifically chosen by Adkins, comes to the clientÂs home to perform routine, yet much needed, tasks around the home.
Maintenance such as re-keying locks, installing smoke and carbon monoxide detectors in homes that lack them and replacing batteries in homes that already have them come with this free service. In addition, AdkinsÂs Handy Andy service also offers her clients two additional hours of free labor for projects such as weather stripping, installing storm windows or sun screens, painting, fixing doors, installing ceiling fans, and a host of other minor house maintenance chores. (Materials fees extra.)
Upon their move in, Adkins also instructs her clients to keep a list on their refrigerator of all those little things that they invariably will find after moving in that are in need of attention. Should the new homeowner want to contract for additional labor and projects, they are able to do so directly with AdkinsÂs contractor.
Adkins says a fellow REALTORÂ®, Curits Hall, shared the idea as a means to better serve her clients, especially new homeowners who may not be familiar with initial home maintenance, or those who have busy schedules and may not be able to schedule such maintenance otherwise. ÂProviding this service will really benefit my clients and take some of the stress off of them after their new purchase. Buying a new home can often be a confusing and time-consuming process. Anything I can do to make the process more enjoyable for my clients just makes sense. And the Handy Andy program is one way I can help them achieve thisÂ, Adkins said.
According to Adkins, the maintenance provided by the Handy Andy program will bring her customers peace of mind with their new purchase. ÂNo longer is there the fear of not knowing how many keys are floating around with previous owners, neighbors, and past tenants. With new locks and just one key to operate all locks, my clients can feel safe and secure,Â Adkins said.
