Nearly 5 out of the 6 million homes sold in the US last year were preexisting homes. Many of these homes likely came with preexisting issues. A home inspection is a vital part of the home buying process and having a certified inspector is a must. I am an AHIT (American Home Inspectors Training) certified inspector and continued education is a priority for me. I also use the HomeGauge reporting platform which makes for quick turn around times for your final report, all reports are completed and returned within 24hrs.

Radon testing is very common when buying a home in Montana. Radon is radioactive gas that comes from the soil as result of decomposing granite. Radon usually does not present a health risk outdoors because it is diluted in the open air. That being said, Montana has three times the national average for indoor radon levels. It is important that homes that do not already have a radon mitigation system be tested for high levels of this potentially hazardous gas.

I hold a radon measurement certification from NRPP (National Radon Proficiency Program).

Buying a home is the largest investment someone can make and making sure your investment is sound is the most important aspect of the home buying process. I enjoy the meticulous work that inspections provide. Finding the many attributes and imperfections that a home may have is always an adventure.

In my free time I enjoy all the many seasonal hobbies Montana has to offer. From rafting and fishing to snowmobiling and skiing. I also enjoy bird hunting with my dog, Hatchet.
