My motto has always been "If it's worth doing, it's worth doing right!"

That is why when I decided to get into home inspection, I did it right!  I went to Kaplan Professional Schools for their training program, I got registered with the state, I have liability insurance, E&O insurance, and get CE credits each year.

I take a real practical approach to inspecting a home.  Don't obsess over technicalities unless they affect the safety or security of the home or occupants.  

I am a member of NMRA, MSHI, and NAHI.


My latest program is designed to help the process of short sales.  By offering an inspection for 1/2 price, it encourages buyers to do the inspection right away, keeping them vested in the property while they wait for acceptance.  The balance is paid later, either when the bank accepts the offer, or when they back out for any reason.  If the bank rejects the offer and it falls apart, I waive the balance, and they move on to the next property.


As a professional Home Inspector, I provide a comprehensive report, educate the buyer about the nuances of the home, and answer all their questions. Their piece of mind is my number one priority.
