About Jamie

Jamie is a graduate of Purdue University, West Lafayette, IN and holds a BS in Building Construction Technology. He has been a professional building inspector since 1989 and in that time, has inspected over 12,000 homes and buildings. He has travelled to 6 states to inspect properties, as well as has attended continuing education conferences around the country and outside of the United States. Jamie’s success is based on providing the best customer service possible. Whether it’s going the extra mile during an inspection, or doing research after an inspection, he makes sure that his clients are well taken care of.

A believer that “the best team wins”, Jamie has concentrated on recruiting and training the best inspectors. While growing the company and training (and re-training) new inspectors is currently his primary responsibility, you’ll still find him inspecting now and then throughout Chicago and Southeast Wisconsin. Jamie has, and continues to, mentor dozens of home inspectors throughout the United States.
