I wonder how I get rid of all this junk.

I bet it would be nice to be able to use your garage for the car.

Cleaning out that attic would sure bring back memories going through that stuff.

I know a guy who will pull all that junk out of your basement so you don’t have to.

I love your home.  I just did a review on my policy and found out I was underinsured.  Have you checked your policy?

Your place looks great! How do you ever find the time to clean? Our place is a mess.  We are just never home with time to clean.

My parents need our help, but it’s hard to find the time to do much for them.  Do you know what I mean.

You must love to clean.  Your place always looks so nice

Did you know that cleaning your carpet usually costs less than a major grocery shopping trip, when my carpet cleaner is called into most homes.

Yes, you think you need to replace your carpets, but you would really be surprised how much better they can look right now until you can afford to replace them.

Are you replacing your carpet because you want to or think you have to?

I love the (Spring/Summer/Fall) because the trees are in bloom, don’t you?

I can’t believe how fast the trees grow in Oregon.

I was noticing there are some dead branches in my tree which are larger than my wrist.

Have you ever seen an arborist at work?  They swing from the trees while they are surgically removing dead and unsightly limbs, or the branches that hang over roofs causing moss.

Did you hear about the guy who put a chainsaw into his leg?

My tree guy has been grinning with the extra work from the wind.

I have a friend who is buying a new construction home and they didn’t know they should have it inspected.

We had a contractor out for an evaluation of some repairs our house needs and it really totaled up to more than we were planning on.  Do you think we should get a second opinion?

We own a rental house.  We had it inspected and what peace of mind to know it is in good shape and what things we need to fix to save thousands.

We had a home inspector out to check out our house since he does not do repairs.  I like the independence from an inspector since they don’t do the repairs.
