UPDATE: I am on a new adventure in life and am no longer doing home inspections for the foreseeable future. For past clients of mine: Feel free to continue to EMAIL me with any of your questions concerning a home inspection I did for you. It's been a pleasure performing this service to all the clients and agents that I've worked with over the last eight years. Now it's time to move on and experience another aspect of life. Have no regrets!! Jeff
Hi and welcome! Are you looking for a Professional Home Inspection or just gathering information? Either way I can help! My company is locally owned and operated, based in Northern Virginia and serving eleven counties (see service areas). I am not a large, impersonal franchise cranking out the inspections. I inspect homes because I love doing it and enjoy being the detective as I look over the home you either own or hope to own. I offer you personal service, ready availability, local familiarity, and most of all, a detailed, informative, unbiased and readable report, downloadable for ease of use. Inspecting for your future, one home at a time!
I have lived in the area for a long time now. I have bought and sold many homes. I know what it's like to be a buyer and a seller, and understand the issues the real estate agent is facing as well. While I work for my client (usually the buyer) I have empathy for those whose homes I am inspecting. I will report what I see, but will put it in perspective. I will be accurate and truthful, but will not be an alarmist or unnecessarily dramatic. And, I will always be available after the inspection for follow-up questions, for as long as you still have my number! I value my reputation and will do everything I can to deliver to you a timely, superior and usable inspection report (not filled with pages of disclaimers)--after all, my family name is riding on it!
As a Virginia Certified Home Inspector I do Residential Buyers Pre-Purchase Inspections, Sellers Pre-Listing (Disclosure) Inspections, 11 Month/One Year/First Year/Anniversary/Builder Warranty Inspections, and the "Home Owner's Manual" Consultation. I also perform New Construction "Quality Assurance" Phase Inspections from foundation to final along with Project Consultations. Additionally, I inspect light commercial properties and work with banks and insurance companies. You may even give a home inspection as a gift to a friend, your children, or even your elderly parents--the gift that keeps on giving as I offer lifetime "technical support"!
