He loves the home inspection business because this allows him to continue to follow his passion. You will hear him say often that human basic needs are food, water, and shelter.

He trust each and every other inspector who works under his name. Real estate is about building relationships of trust. Doing the right thing, at the right time, the right way, and for the right reason is the true secret to building that relationship.
