Thank you for the opportunity to inspect your home! I am a Licensed Home Inspector in the State of Oklahoma, a graduate of American Home Inspector Training® (AHIT), and a Certified Professional Inspector® through the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (InterNACHI). I have loved homes, construction, and mechanical systems for as long as I can remember. My dad put tools in my hand as a kid, and encouraged me to never stop learning. As a young man, I apprenticed for a general contractor, building and remodeling homes. I spent the next 20 years in the professional Fire Service, often “disassembling” homes rooting out problems under emergency conditions. I retired from the Los Angeles City Fire Department as a Battalion Chief, with duties including the determination of fire cause, and overseeing the mitigation of many types of emergencies involving homes just like yours. When it comes to your home, I understand how it’s put together, how it works, and the ways it may cause you problems. Given the opportunity to serve you, I will provide my full attention and diligent service, the way I’ve always done.I am a family man. My favorite pastimes are anything that allow me to spend time with my wife and four kids. As a family, we have bought, remodeled, and sold many homes over the years, and I understand your concerns as you navigate escrow, purchase, and work to maintain your home - likely your single largest investment. As a Christian, my integrity is of utmost importance to me. I will always treat you and your home with respect and maintain transparency with you regarding your inspection. I will work hard to ensure that any questions you may have about your home are answered.
