- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
We base our fees (as do most Home Inspectors) based on the size of the home and various other factors such as age of the home and weather or not it has a pier and beam foundation. We feel our fees are very competitive and are listed on our website. We offer a free infrared thermographic survey scan with each home inspection (this is a $100.00 - $200.00 value based on the size of the home).
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
We welcome all of our clients to attend the home inspection. Most clients like to show up for the inspection when the actual physical part of the inspection is nearly complete. That way we can walk them through our findings both with photos and visually. We can then answer any questions/concerns they have prior to generating the report. This process works well for us and our clients really appreciate the effort. It also promotes good will and trust with our clients.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have over 20 years in the commercial real estate industry (Class A enclosed regional shopping malls and mixed use venues encompassing retail/office/multi-family and office use) and have assumed leadership roles in the leasing, management, development and construction of millions of square feet of commercial usage with a combined aggregate value of over several billion dollars. I am also a licensed Realtor, A licensed Professional Home Inspector, a licensed Professional Termite Inspector and a licensed Registered Accessibility Specialist (ADA) Inspector. I am also certified to inspect pools/spas, and a certified Infrared Thermographer.
