How We Got Started

I chose to work in this industry because I love helping people and explaining the many different components of their new potential home. I began in the industry by completing home safety evaluations and inspections for a home healthcare company in 2009. I have personally flipped, held, and sold fifteen properties of my own and now and actively manage a portfolio of investment properties my wife and I own. This background has been an instrumental education for me as a home inspector..

We started in this industry in 2009.

We describe our business as Family owned and operated

What makes you different then the other inspectors?

I want the customer to be present during the inspection so I can answer all their questions.

Project: Inspect a Home
Doug is a consummate professional, with the added bonus of expertise in aging in place. Meticulous, encyclopedic knowledge of all manner of home building and utility systems, construction techniques, materials, and value. Laser focused on and responsive to his client's needs above all else - "Advocates" is the perfect way to describe his dedication to his client. As a mature woman on her own, I've been burned when it comes to service providers trying to take advantage, and Doug was a truly welcome relief - fair, transparent, dedicated to not just performing the inspection for the purchase of my new home, but to educating me every step of the way to ensure I understood what I had and how to best maintain things for the long term. It was clear that integrity matters to him and that was demonstrated, repeatedly, in every step of the process. He was extraordinarily thorough, detail oriented, and able to present his findings in a user friendly way. He didn't just point out things needing attention, he priced replacement parts and guided me on what repairs should cost and how they should be performed. As an added bonus, he's on top of the latest ideas and options for adapting a home for special needs as you age to help keep you in the comfort of your own home for as long as possible. I wholeheartedly recommend him as someone not just excellent in his field, but who demonstrates the personal integrity of his character in the professional integrity of his work.

This was a great experience. Doug was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. He takes as much time as need to review each system. He explained the project so it was easily understood. He is as interactive as the home owner wants him to be. Very knowledge in the trades and his field. I will recommend him to everybody and anybody as he is a true professional.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.



NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed as described above may change or expire over time; while HomeAdvisor attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate. Therefore, we recommend that before working with a service professional you verify that information presented is still current and/or acceptable to you.
