The Inspector




  I have been doing home inspections in the Tampa Bay area since 1990 and have established a successful home inspection service built upon integrity, customer service, and thorough and accurate home inspections. I find satisfaction in providing a service that is helpful and appreciated.
I started in the home inspection profession as an apprentice with Colorado Real Estate Inspection Services.  I was fortunate to have been trained by Skip Campbell who is considered one of the innovators in the home inspection industry. Getting “hands on training” and working alongside a seasoned pro was a tremendous experience that  has benefited me to this day. Skip charged me $5.00 a day, and then bought my lunch every day…..  Truly a blessing. 
I have received even more specialized training and experience working with industry leaders such as Homeowners Marketing Services, Resitic, R.J. Moore and Associates, and Housemaster of America.  In 1993 I became a member of (ASHI) American Society of Home Inspectors.  
The State of Florida established licensing for Home Inspectors in 2010. I was among the first group of Home Inspectors to be grandfathered in as a State of Florida Licensed Home Inspector.  
Having inspected 1000’s of  homes throughout Tampa, St. Petersburg, Clearwater, Brandon, and Wesley Chapel I can honestly say….every week I run into something I’ve never seen before. That’s what makes it interesting.
Years of experience are incorporated into thorough and professional computer written reports delivered within 24 hours of the inspection.
