What’s the best way to prepare your property as we head into the winter months? To help me cover this topic, I’m joined by Jim Levine from Levine & Sons.

  

Today I’m joined by special guest Jim Levine of Levine & Sons to talk about something very important for this time of year: heating, cooling, plumbing, and ways to prepare your property for the coming winter months.

One of the first things I want to go over is the importance of getting your furnace checked on a yearly basis. Doing this is almost like going to the doctor for an annual physical.

For one, you need to change your filter to ensure proper airflow for the furnace. If there isn’t proper airflow, the heat exchanger can get overworked and crack.

This could lead to you losing heat altogether. Ultimately, changing the air filter is probably the most important thing you can do for the health of your furnace. Not maintaining your furnace properly can absolutely lead to costly repairs.


Changing the air filter is probably the most important thing you can do for the health of your furnace.

 

Also, it’s incredibly important that you have a carbon monoxide detector. This gas is a silent killer. It is tasteless, odorless, and you won’t know that it’s affecting you until you already begin to feel sick.

Because these issues are so important to my team and I, we’re partnering with Levine & Sons to give our past clients and friends of The Perna Team 10% off furnace checks. Also, we want to offer you two free carbon monoxide detectors. Even if you have a detector already, you absolutely need to replace it if it is more than eight years old.

Levine & Sons was started in 1927 by Jim’s grandfather, and the business is still going strong. They provide services like plumbing, heating, cooling, sewer line cleaning, and excavation. Everyone at Levine & Sons provides high-quality service with a smile on their face.

If you have any other questions or would like more information, feel free to give me a call or send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Keller Williams has committed to raising over $20 million to help hurricane survivors back on track, but it’s not enough. Found out what you can do to help the community.

Hurricanes Harvey and Irma have caused over 200 BILLION DOLLARS in damage. In Houston over 80% of homes do not have flood insurance. Last week thousands of Keller Williams Agents (myself included) and 3 dozen supply packed 18 wheelers poured into the Houston area, while hundreds of Keller Williams Agents rushed to Florida with a dozen 18 wheelers full of supplies. Now that the media has moved on, WE CANNOT. Fighting mold, causing heat and humidity that week, we fought against time in mucking out houses, sadly removing personal items, as well as drywall, carpet, cabinetry and more. In addition, we packed and brought in over 10,000 meals, sheltered hundreds of evacuates, and more.

There is more work to be done and more dollars needed to do it. The Perna Team and Keller Williams is committed to raising 20 million that will go directly to these two disasters. Alone it won't solve all the problems, however, just a little bit of help from everyone can.

To date, The Perna Team has raised $156,000 and counting.


Generosity is greatly needed in these desperate times.
 

Please click the KW Cares link below to learn more about KW and Perna Team relief efforts. Also, there's a spot to donate direct should you choose.  Every dollar counts and we're in this as Americans together.

Hurricane Harvey has had an absolutely devastating impact along the coast. We are doing everything we can to help and have information on how you can do so too.

There are many great Metro-Detroit area homes for sale. Click here to perform a full home search, or if you're thinking of selling your home,click here for a FREE Home Price Valuation so you know what buyers will pay for your home in today's market. You may also call me at 248-886-4450 for a FREE home buying or selling consultation to answer any of your real estate questions. 

Today we’ll be making a departure from our usual subject, real estate, to talk about something a little different: Hurricane Harvey.

This storm has been one of the greatest natural disasters of our time, having displaced 30,000 people in its wake. In the past few days alone, there have been 450,000 requests for disaster relief and more are likely to come.

There has been $160 billion worth of destruction, and the size of the storm is approximately the size of Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Sandy combined.

A record-breaking 52 inches of rainfall has caused widespread damage and help is desperately needed by those affected. Never before has so much rain fallen at once in the continental US.


Generosity is greatly needed in these desperate times.

 

Be on the lookout for scam organizations posing as charities. Many of these are looking to unethically take on money and donations without any intent of using these resources in any sort of relief effort.

Keller Williams is making our own effort to help. If you would like to make a donation, visit www.kwrelief.org where you will find a direct link to the American Red Cross.

We are doing everything we can to get resources like money, supplies, and volunteer help into the right hands. Several Keller Williams agents have dedicated their time and energy to assisting those in need.

The worst is still not over. There are months of rebuilding ahead and there are many families who have lost absolutely everything. We encourage anyone and everyone who is able to do so to give once, twice, or as often as they can to help put these families back on their feet.

Generosity is greatly needed in these desperate times.

On the Perna Team, we’ve begun taking donations as well. Keller Williams Realty International has prepared three 18-wheeler trucks to bring supplies, help, food, and clean water into disaster areas. They will continue to travel to areas of need for as long as is necessary.

All of us at Keller Williams are greatly committed to doing everything we can to help.

If you have any other questions or would like more information, feel free to give me a call or send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
