Make an appointment with Charlie to do a private session for obtaining your 5 field inspections.  Illinois only allows for one field event to be preformed per day.  My process will be 1 field event will be in a home without a client.  This will allow us to discuss the different parts of the mechanical systems.  You will see how they work, understand all the components, and see the equipment that a high end home inspector uses. The rest of the inspections will be you witnessing the inspection process as I go through the home with my clients. Together we will inspect these houses on the outside and the inside following the state mandate.  You will not write reports or communicate with any clients.  This process counts as all five of your field experiences required by the State of Illinois.

Fee $600.00 for all five inspections

Join Our team

Being a licensed home inspector in Illinois does not require any special tools, knowledge, or insurance.  We like to consider our services as 180 degree opposite of the above statement.  We want our inspectors to know more, document more, and use more tools.  It is more work and does take longer.  You will not become super rich.  But you will feel rewarded by doing one of the most thorough home inspections in the Chicagoland area.  You will use equipment like thermal imagers, combustion analyzers, moisture meters, drones, sewer scopes, chimney scanners, and mold testing equipment just to name the few.  As long as you have the attitude of making a long list of accurate issues in a home and working hard for your client, we will work with you to make sure you have the proper knowledge to work under our name. The first step is to assess your knowledge level.  This test is a self assessment.  You are welcome to take this exam as many times as you wish.  You will see your answers at the end.  Good luck and please feel free to reach out to me with any questions at 630-327-2700.
