Why did you decide to become a home inspector?

SF: “Friends and family encouraged me. I am constantly looking at things, analyzing them, and looking for ways to improve them. Home Inspection seemed like it would be a good fit for my interests”

What’s the one thing you wish every homeowner knew?

SF: “The homeowner needs to understand that a home is a living, breathing structure. It grows old, it settles, it wears and shows aging. It is part of my inspection to educate and inform the client that homes require maintenance, love, and care – and almost every obstacle can be addressed and resolved, you just need to be informed.”

What is the most surprising thing you’ve uncovered during a home inspection?

SF: “During one of my first inspections I came across a tree that was actually growing into the home. It was a big old maple, and not only had it compromised the structure, it was starting to encroach on the garage. It really made me think of Jeff Goldbloom in Jurassic Park: ‘nature will always find a way’.”

What Our Clients Say

  • The inspector was very thorough and took the time to explain everything; the value-added extras such as the report on the school district, drug house check, and recalled appliance checks were invaluable added surprises.

    M.J.; Homebuyer

  • The overview is a great idea, clearly identifies what the homeowner needs to focus on first. The breakdown of the report is great. Going section by section I can clearly see each component with the recommendations including diagrams and pictures of my personal home. The report looks great and is easy to read. It’s very useful having this document knowing that I can refer to it at any time in the future should an issue arise with my house.

    M.S.; Homeowner

  • Quick, easy to book, knowledgeable inspectors, great service from customer service team, quick turnaround, extensive reports with all the details in an easy to read location. Also, strength of the brand. Always a trusted source.
