- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
I do not have any prices listed online because of the nature of real estate, each property is different from the next. It's not the type of business where one size fits all. I want to be able to quote you a firm price for the inspection. I ask questions about the property as to the location, size of the structure, whether it has a basement, crawl space or is on a slab, the age of the structure, etc. I ask these questions to determined whether I would recommend a radon test, mold testing or have any other concerns which may reflect a change to the quoted price. I have never had to increased any of my inspection quoted fees once given and in fact I have reduced a few of my quoted fees once at the inspection.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
At the property before the inspection, I take a some time so we can get acquainted with one another. During this time I go over what I will be doing over the next few hours in regard to inspecting. I ask you if you have any concerns with the property, something that you want me to address in particular. I want you to feel confident in the process and be involved whether you walk around with me during the inspection or will just wait for the report at the end.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I currently hold state licenses for Home Inspection in both New Jersey and Florida. For my Florida license I was trained by InterNACHI, International Association of Certified Home Inspectors and for my New Jersey license, Inspection21 which is one of only a few state approved schools. In addition to my state licenses I have the following certifications:Radon Measurement Technician, Infrared Thermal Imaging Inspector, Commercial Property Inspector, WDO Inspector (Termite), Indoor Air Consultant with Radon and Mold Endorsements, Mobile/Manufactured Inspector.
