Jamie Hawks

16 years ago I started my career in the construction industry as a plumber. I then worked with several general contractors performing residential remodels and repairs. After that, I became a Construction Inspector where I managed numerous residential construction projects looking for "code" violations. This led me into Home Inspections where I have now performed thousands of home inspections all over Southern California. Inspecting homes is a passion of mine. I truly enjoy helping people understand what they are buying, and what repairs they may need to do. My goal is to provide home buyers with the best home inspection possible so they are protected from unplanned expenses. In 2009, I joined The Real Estate Inspection Company. The Company’s mission is to protect all parties in a transaction and provide the best customer service possible. We have completed over 20,000 Home Inspections in the San Diego area. We inspect every home as if it were our own. Check out our thermal cameras, mold inspections, sewer camera inspections and inspection guarantee.


Feel free to send me an email or call me with any questions you have about the inspection. My contact info is listed to the left.

Thanks for all of your time in the heat yesterday Jamie! Much appreciated and look forward to catching you again soon. :)
- K.G., San Diego CA, August 2017
Great job and presentation!

Jamie consistently provides exceptional reports and objective narrative while his expert customer service skills shine. My best example of his inspections was when he discovered a loose seal under a shower pan of an upstairs bathroom. The seller had not used the shower in years so it was an unknown condition and completely undetectable. During normal tests he used his FLIR and scanned the ceiling from downstairs and saw a growing blue field of water. The seller quickly scheduled the repair and a costly and inconvenient problem was avoided after close of escrow.

Jamie Hawks did a perfect job. I was misinformed about some of the work that was included in this report but that was not the fault of jamie. for example i was told that it would be measured if the pool structure was still in level.
- H.C., November 2009
It was a very efficient and complete inspection and the comments you made and the suggestions you provided were very helpful and informative as well. I would not hesitate at all in recommending you to others as well and also call you for additional inspections of this house on some other issues including energy audits and such.

Jeamie is very professional, thorough, detailed on things that he went over, and made me understand what need to be done. I noticed he was very careful not to stepping in the puddle of water to avoid getting he shoes wet, so he wouldn't get the carpet dirty once he get back into the house. I would definitely recommend him to my friends and anyone that needs a home inspection.
