Purchasing Your Dream Home

image11

Purchasing a home is one of the biggest financial investments you may ever make in your lifetime. That's why you want the best possible Inspector in your corner to tell you whether that cute Colonial is your "dream home" or a lemon with a cracked Foundation, Electrical issues, shoddy Plumbing, Termites and a shaky Chimney. You only have one shot at having your potential dream home evaluated by a professional who has a professional eye, experience and training to find defects/deficiencies. A thorough inspection is the most important way to protect your investment. 

 

One thing that is often overlooked about Real Estate Inspectors is their relative inequality with regard to knowledge, experience and forensic skills. The purpose of an Inspector is to discover and report defects and/or deficiencies. The ability to do this effectively involves skills that take many years to develop and refine. Some Inspectors are far better at this than others. Unfortunately, most people do not realize this when they hire an Inspector, and spend little, if any time selecting one. 


 All of our Award-Winning, Board-Certified Inspections are performed according to the standards of practice and code of ethics, dictated by 

the Texas Real Estate Commission www.trec.texas.gov the National Association of Certified Home Inspectors www.nachi.org & the Master Inspector Certification Board www.certifiedmasterinspector.org providing the industry's highest professional standards, inspection procedures and business ethics.

Why Hire Us?

I am extremely proud to be the only Professional Real Estate Inspector of my kind in the state of Texas. First, I am one of only (46) Board-Certified Professional Master Inspectors in the state of Texas (out of almost 4,000 state-licensed Professional Inspectors). Secondly, I am a Graduate Engineer, with a Master of Engineering (M.Engr.) in Civil Engineering. My inspections and structural evaluations are performed from a completely different perspective than any other Inspector, due to my qualifications and experience. All of my board-certified inspections far exceed the Texas Real Estate Commission's Standards of Practice, which is the minimum inspection standard all state-licensed Inspectors are required to follow. I have performed well over 10,000 inspections and structural evaluations since becoming licensed by the TREC almost 30 years ago.


 When I perform a Property Inspection, I include approximately $1500 worth of complimentary inspections to my clients that other inspection companies do not offer and/or are not qualified to perform.  For a detailed list of these complimentary inspections, please click HERE or on the "WHAT'S INCLUDED" page of this website.


I have a real passion for the Real Estate Inspection industry and absolutely LOVE what I do! I consistently strive to be the BEST Inspector/Graduate Engineer for my Clients and the professional Realtors representing my Clients! This may sound a bit "cliche," but I truly perform each and every inspection like I am purchasing the property for myself. When you see my final product (your inspection reports), you will realize that this statement is far from "cliche!" My inspection reports are highly customized and thoroughly documented, with hundreds of detailed pictures. Instead of your typical boilerplate comments provided by most inspection companies, you will receive the expert opinion and insight my qualifications, training and experience brings to the table, which is unparalleled in the inspection industry today. The Texas Real Estate Commission allows Inspectors (2) days to deliver Inspection Reports to their clients;  however, I always strive to issue my Inspection Reports the same day.  


At A-PLUS Inspection Services, we pride ourselves in superior customer service and "service after the sale." We have had the same phone number for 52 years and offer lifetime consulting to all of our clients. If you ever have any questions/concerns, we are always a phone call, text or e-mail away! We sincerely appreciate your business & confidence in our professional inspection services.
