Jim's experiences as a REALTOR, a Facilities Maintenance Supervisor and Instructor and as Professional Inspector has taught him the importance of discovering potential structural and system issues for prospective home buyers, sellers or owners and the need to deliver a thorough report quickly.

Jim understands the extreme competitiveness of our Texas housing markets, and the importance of being available to conduct inspections on short notice. Frequently the ability to perform a thorough home inspection in a week or less is critical to the success of the buyer’s offer. This is particularly true in the high-growth areas of Frisco, McKinney, and most of Collin County and the surrounding area.
We have automated our home inspection process and reporting to reduce the end-to-end time it takes to produce and deliver an Inspection Report. This efficiency gives our clients a competitive advantage in an environment where sellers may be receiving multiple contemporaneous offers.

Jim is dedicated to excellent service, done in a professional manner. Whether you’re a first-time buyer, or you’re an experienced buyer or seller, we can help you make an informed, clear decision.

Jim’s vast experience in the construction industry makes him the ideal person to help you “inspect before you invest”.

* There are three levels of home inspectors licensed in the state of Texas.

  1. Apprentice;
  2. Home Inspector and
  3. Professional Home Inspector. A Professional Home Inspector (like Jim) has completed the highest level of education and standards required by the State of Texas to become a licensed Professional Home Inspector. You will see many Home Inspectors who advertise themselves as "Professionals" but that does not mean they are licensed as "Professional Home Inspectors" by the State of Texas Real Estate Commission.
