Chase them out with a broom? Yelling and screaming?

One tip is to use lizard traps- you can find them online. Its basically a sticky trap that has cockroach phermones which attract the lizard i.e. they think its the lunch bell and then they get trapped. Trap and release... don't kill please.

Steam has already given you very nice tips but there are so many products available which help to make the lizards out of house i.e there are some lizard killer pastes available.You can apply it to your windows from outside and it will be easy to make the lizards away from house.

You might think that flypaper is only effective for flies, but you can be wrong. Flypapers can be laid down in areas where lizards usually appear, such as near corners or where there are lights and bulbs where insects and moths tend to gather. Another way for you to trap lizards involves a little bit of dexterity and quickness. Using a box, try to corner a lizard and once you do, immediately cover it with the box. Use a thin piece of cardboard to slide under the box so it will serve as the covering for the box once you turn it over. Carry the covered box outside and then release the lizard a few dozen meters or so from your house. Just make sure it's somewhere far enough that the lizard can't return, else you will just be exerting for nothing.

Pest control would be the most reliable option. Also, in all seriousness a cat would help. My cat LOVES to catch lizards. She gets them all the time outside, and even when she was a kitten, she found two inside of the house.

Well, Lizards lives on small insects. So first you need to prevent these small insects. Keep you entire home clean and neat. Vacuum regular is one of the best way to keep your clean and keep lizards and insects away from home.

Lizards feed on small insects and flies and small cockroaches. If they get more such feed, they grow and propagate. So the basic need to get rid of lizards is to prevent the presence of such insects and pests. Some people have sentiments with lizards and may be against killing them so you should try to avoid them.

I wouldn't worry about one or two lizards, they eat bugs... but if there are more than that, you should just call a professional.
