About Me

Experienced.   Qualified.   Unbiased.

An Independent Home Inspector

I work for you, not the realtor

First of all, you'll work with me, not a junior associate or trainee.

When you reach out, I'll answer the call, text or email. I will personally perform your inspection; compose your report; discuss it with you and remain your consultant for as long as you are involved with the subject property.

I'm a degreed, New York State-licensed (#16000032460) home inspector, also a former NYS Code Enforcement Official and a former EPA Lead Risk Assessor (NY-R-72971-2)*. I have years of prior hands-on construction experience, and further years of experience as a home rehabilitation project manager.

I'm not a contractor or handyman using home inspection to drum-up business.  Not a rookie with more good intentions than experience. I don't market my services to or through real estate offices. Therefore my interests in the home I inspect are yours, and yours alone.

  • B.S. Special Studies; SUNY Fredonia 1983
  • NYS Code Enforcement Official
  • Federal (EPA) certified Lead Risk Assessor
  • Years of hands-on residential construction experience
  • Years of experience in residential rehab Project Management
  • Member: Western Southern Tier Building Officials Association
* A licensed home inspection does not include either lead risk testing or code compliance investigation. I mention these credentials here only to give you a sense of the depth and the breadth of my background and experience in home inspection.

Provided With Each Inspection

You will receive, via email, a concise, plain English account of the findings which I believe could influence your decision making. Items will be carefully illustrated with photographs.
Not a thick binder full of boilerplate information you could easily find online, sprinkled throughout with facts about the subject property.

I hope you can accompany me on the inspection. I will describe my observations as we go & address any questions you may have.

Once you have read my report, we can discuss any and all sections as much as you like.

Most importantly I remain your consultant, indefinitely. No further cost for telephone consultation on any questions which may later arise about the home I inspect for you.

Few things make me happier than saving one of my clients a service call from an electrician or plumber.

My goal is your peace of mind.

I am here to arm you with all of the factual information that a thorough, careful visual inspection plus basic testing of systems can reveal.

These facts are discovered and reported with no bias and no agenda but to facilitate clear, calm decisions on your part.
