After twenty years in the Marine Corps, I started a family with my wife, Johanna, and when our second child was born, we decided to move back to her hometown of Kalispell. Throughout my time in the Marines, I inspected and ensured the high-tech equipment used by the Marines was battle ready. When I first retired from the Marines, I worked as a facility manager for a large pediatric company with buildings throughout Albuquerque. Combining both my experience in the Marines and as a facility manager, I became an InterNACHI® certified home inspector with specialized certifications including: radon testing, roof inspections, deck inspections, kitchen inspections, plumbing inspections, and attic and furnace inspections.
InterNACHI® inspectors are trained and certified by the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors, the world’s largest association of residential and commercial property inspectors. InterNACHI® provides its members with accredited training and education, free benefits, expert advice, and peer support—all to help them serve their homeowner-clients with the highest-quality inspections for their largest investments.
As an InterNACHI® Certified Professional Inspector®:
- I‘m required to stay up to date with the industry’s most rigorous Continuing Education through online, video and live training courses, which have been awarded more than 1,400 approvals and accreditation by governmental and other agencies;
- I adhere to a comprehensive Standards of Practice to ensure that you receive a detailed and accurate home inspection;
- I abide by a strict Code of Ethics, which puts my clients first and protects their rights as consumers; and
- I use state-of-the-art inspection tools and reporting software so that my clients can make informed decisions about the homes they want to buy or sell.
My standard home inspection is an evaluation of the visible and accessible interior and exterior structure, systems and components. Your report will include my findings of any material defects I discover in an easy-to-read format. I will also provide my recommendations for monitoring, repair or replacement. And my job isn’t finished until you understand everything in your report.
