InterNACHI Certified


I've done home inspections for over eight years and I've been in the construction industry for over forty years. I have repairied many homes that have failed various inspections. I do a thorough inspection in a proffesional manner.


Jim you're very thorough and professional. Thank you, for your expediency. I come from an area where it would take up to 2 weeks to get an inspection report. I will certainly recommend your service to anyone.

Jim just did an inspection for us. He is very courteous, professional and his inspection was very thorough. Jim walked us through every detail with straightforward recommendations. I highly recommend him for your next home inspection.

Thank you jim for taking the time to come inspect this house for us. We appreciate the fact you paid close attention to detail. Love the fact you respected the sellers home enough to even take your shoes off at the door. Thank you.

Jim did an awesome job for our home, at a reasonable price. There was a little bit of water damage in the laundry room that we wish we would have seen before hand, but everything else was very thorough and honest. Thanks Jim!

Very friendly guy and very thorough, it was great working with jim

Jim, you were great. We felt you took the time we needed to explain the report. You were thorough and on top of things. I honestly can not think of anything you could have done differently to make our experience more enjoyable.
- B.B., December 2017
Jim was very informative and answered all our questions thoroughly. He was very attentive to detail and we were pleased with his detailed report and willingness to be contacted further with any additional questions.
- Z.V., December 2017
This is the third time Jim and I have worked with each other. His attention to detail is great and he always explains everything so that I can understand it.
- K.C., November 2017
Jim was very professional and knowledgeable. He also had a good way of imparting his knowledge. Very good inspector.
- L.L., November 2017
We didn't have the opportunity to meet Jim, since we live in a different state. We did however have a family member meet with him for our home inspection. Jim was professional and genuinely kind. The inspection was done in a timely matter with a non biased attitude. We would highly recommend Jim to any and all who need a home inspection.
- M.P., October 2017
Very knowledgeable and easy to understand and very thorough.
- J.W., August 2017
I am not familiar with what an inspector is required to do but based upon Jim's descriptions and images it appears to me he was very thorough with his inspection. He explained in detail what was done and what couldn't be done, and why. He is very personable and he was easy to talk with, didn't talk down to me but realised I didn't know anything about what he did and carefully explained all to me. The realtor, Joel Carlson, has a very good relationship with Jim and they work well together. I highly recommend the both of them.
- K.C., June 2017
Thanks Jim! I had a great time with you today looking at the house. We appreciate all your insight!
- T.R., April 2017
We are so glad that we used Jim for our home inspection. He was so thorough and explained everything so well. He did 2 home inspections for us. He answered all of our questions in detail and made sure we understood what we would need to do to keep the home in tip-top shape. The best part is that when we were talking with Jim, he was so personable that it felt like we were just talking to a friend. I definitely will recommend him to all of my friends and family the next time they need to get a home inspection done!
- J.D., March 2017
Thanks Jim for taking the time to explain the inspection process to me and walking me through the house to show me what you found. I also wanted to say thanks for hanging out with my realtor and I as we tried to get the keys out of my locked truck.

- S.V., Salt Lake City UT, April 2015
I appreciate Jim's initiative to walk me through the property to designate the property defects that he noted in his report. He is not only apt in his field, but also demonstrated technical knowledge pertinent to my questions. Jim was punctual and preempted my need for a hard copy of the inspection; he came prepared with a color printer. I received a digital, online version of the inspection within an hour of departing! Jim is professional and friendly. I will recommend him every chance I get. Thank you, Jim!
