I am a people person who happens to be a Home Inspector. I like to build trusting relationships. I enjoy having my customers join me as I inspect the home and encourage them to ask questions, that's what they pay me for.


Jim, Thank you so much for your thorough inspection. I felt that as a first-time homebuyer, you covered everything I needed to know and even things I didn't know I needed. You did a great job at making my family and I comfortable by addressing our questions and concerns as I was very worried about the inspection and finding the right person. I appreciated receiving your professional opinion, but was reassured knowing I was also receiving your honest opinion as well. I would highly recommend your services and can't thank you enough for providing me with such a great first-time buyer experience. Thank you again!

Jim did a great job and his report was very easy to follow. The arrows on the pictures were a plus as well. Thank you Jim!

The home I bought is a pretty small place and Jim could have finished it in a very short amount of time, but he made sure he put in just as much time as he would a bigger house. Looking over every small detail, explaining everything to me, going above and beyond! I am a young first time home buyer and I am completely uneducated when it comes to home repairs or what to look for. Not once did I feel like Jim was giving me the ring around or like he was rushing to finish his task. Any concern I had he looked into and let me know exactly what I needed to do to move forward. He made this process so easy for me!! It puts my mind at ease knowing that he has completely inspected the house from top to bottom, inside and out as well as the garage and the lot they're on. I would recommend Jim 1000 times! Absolutely impressed and thankful for him!
