About this pro

How does your business stand out?

As a long time Florida resident and Certified Professional Inspector® trained by InterNACHI—the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors—I’m able to offer my clients not just a thorough home inspection and reliable report, but a range of services, guarantees and warranties with each inspection. Included with every Home Inspection is a 90 DAY INSPECTION GUARANTEE, MOLD SAFE WARRANTY, SEWERGARD PROTECTION, 5 YEAR ROOF LEAK WARRANTY and an APPLIANCE RECALL CHECK. In addition I've had extensive training in the biology and identification of termite, wood boring insects, and wood destroying fungus through the University of Florida's entomology dept. and I am a Certified Pest Control Operator by the Florida Dept. of Agriculture and can provide you with a WDO report along with your Home Inspection report. I can also provide Insurance Reports as needed such as a 4 Point, Wind Mitigation, Roof Certification, plus Well Water Analysis and Mold Testing. Additional fees may apply. What this means to you is the convenience of making just one phone call and one appointment time to order a discounted multi report package. These days if you want an Unbiased and Fair report it's wise to do your research and choose your own Inspector. More and more Home Buyers are making the prudent decision to choose their own Inspector instead of just blindly going with their Agent's preferred Home Inspector. That is precisely why I chose to sign up with Thumbtack a few weeks ago. I prefer to deal with more Home Buyers versus Realtors. I may be new to Thumbtack (which is why I don't have many reviews), but I'm not new to Home Inspection. If you allow me the opportunity to do business with you I promise I will give you my very best effort.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

Home inspecting fits my personality very well; I love facts and logic and solving mysteries. Houses hold all of those things, and I get to spend every day investigating them.

    It was a pleasure working with Jeff on a home I am buying. He had great work quality, and his report and pictures were very detailed. My realtor was so impressed, she is going to start referring Jeff to all her new buyers. If you want a honest, professional inspector for a GREAT price, use Dwell Specs. You WILL NOT be disappointed!

    Jeff was wonderful to work with. He was very knowledgeable and great to work with. Luckily, we used him and found out how big of a deal an abandoned tank attached to a house we were going to purchase. Definitely recommend his service. We're planning to use him again in near future.

    Jeff did a great job and took his time inspecting the home I am purchasing, very thorough and explained all the points that needed attention. He included the mitigation and 4 point inspection in the package which saved me money when shopping for homeowners insurance. Recommended!

    Jeff was absolutely AMAZING! The home we originally hired him to inspect wasn't an perfect fit for us. We had a last minute blessing come to us for another home we were interested in, and without any hesitation Jeff followed us over to the new location and inspected it for us on the spot. He was nothing but professional the entire time. He has such an humble spirit and is knowledgeable about his work. You can tell that he definitely takes pride in what he does and does it beyond his BEST ability. Not only did Jeff inspect our home, he also extended us his services IF we ever need him after today. My husband and I will definitely use him again. We'll highly recommend him to any one in need of an inspector.

    Outstanding value!
    What a pleasure working with someone so professional and easy to talk to! As first time home buyers we had no idea what was involved in an inspection. Jeff explained everything step by step, was very thorough and helped us understand what he found. And he was definitely the best price out there! I will recommend him to anyone.

    I've purchased three homes in the past 5 years and have had a different inspector for each property. I've finally found someone who does thorough work at a fair price. Jeff knew his stuff and had the right tools that others have not in the past. Communication was excellent and fast and he moved his schedule around for me when the selling agent had to change the time. I will use Jeff next time I need an inspection and won't hesitate to recommend him to others.

    Very pleased
    Very pleased with whole experience. Jeff was able to work in my appointment with less than 12 hours notice. He was amazingly thorough and efficient. He told me how he would perform the inspection working his way counterclockwise thru the house and rooms. He went thru the attic, not just popped his head up the opening. All my frequent questions were completely answered both along the way and after. He photodocumented and prepared a detailed report which was completed by the next day. I have much to do, but now at least know how and where to proceed.

    Outstanding work!
    They arrived early. He was very detailed by taking his time and according to the report, he found a few issues with the house that were not visible to the eye and I was able to get a better price for my home leaving me room for the repairs. I highly recommend this company to inspect your home! These guys are very professional.

Q&A

What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
The pricing system is based mostly on square footage however, in cases where the house is in a serious state of disrepair or is very old or is an unusual construction type the standard fee may need to be adjusted to account for the additional inspection and reporting time involved. 0 to 1500 square feet = $275 1501 - 2500 square feet = $325 2501 - 3500 square feet = $375 3501 - 5000 square feet = $425 More than 5000 square feet, or extra out-buildings: Give us a call! Crawl Space add $50 Add ons 4-Point Inspection = $100 ($50 with full home inspection) Wind Mitigation = $100 ($50 with full home inspection) WDO/Termite = $80 ($50 with full home inspection) Pool/Spa Inspection = $50 ​Water Analysis = $150
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Unlike most professionals you hire, you probably won't meet me until your inspection appointment--after you have hired me. Furthermore, different inspectors have varying qualifications, equipment, experience, reporting methods, and pricing. One thing that's certain is that a home inspection requires a lot of work. Ultimately, a thorough inspection depends heavily on the individual inspector's effort. If you honor me by permitting me to inspect your new home, I guarantee that I will give you my very best effort. This I promise you.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I receive home inspection training through Internachi (International Association of Certified Home Inspectors). Home inspection training is an ongoing endeavor and I have to complete a certain amount of CEU's to renew my license. In addition I belong to several trade groups whose members are mostly other home inspectors from other parts of the US. We share our combined knowledge in a forum which is very helpful in keeping up with standards of practice. As a licensed WDO Inspector I have been fortunate enough to have had excellent training through the University of Florida's entomology department. In addition, while working for a large pest control company, I inspected hundreds of homes across Central Florida for real estate transactions. I also have to complete a certain amount of CEU's to renew my pest control license every year.
