About The Owner
Bio: Born and raised in western PA, I moved to Erie, PA in 2003 and decided that my future was to own a home inspection business. I bought my HomeTeam Inspection franchise in 2004 and did all of my training. Since opening in the fall of 2004, we have been in the top 1/3 of all HomeTeam franchisees every year. We consistently perform around 300 home inspections per year, plus 200 – 250 radon tests, and 250 pest inspections. We also handle 50 – 70 well & septic tests every year.
I am the owner and President, and Kim G. manages the office and performs customer service. We also have a sub-contractor who handles all of our well & septic testing.
As the son of a builder and a real estate agent, I was born to be in this business, having direct personal experience with both sides of real estate. I can also thank both parents for their entrepreneurial spirit, standards of excellence and work ethic.
Personal: Married to an Erie native. We currently have three pets: two cats and a Puggle.
Self-employment doesn’t allow much time for hobbies, but I am an avid Pittsburgh Steelers fan and enjoy a craft beer or two. My wife and I also like to visit NYC, Cleveland, Buffalo, Pittsburgh, Florida and Virginia Beach.
Qualifications: To operate a home inspection business in PA, and be in full compliance with PA Home Inspection Law, you are required to do these three things: Pass a national exam. Carry Professional Errors & Omissions insurance. Perform your first 100 home inspections while being supervised.
We did all three before opening for business.
My background of working with my fathers’ Building and Development business gave me a broad understanding of construction, from foundations to roofs and finishing. In my childhood years I was a frequent visitor to job sites. I began as a laborer in my early teens, continued working summers with him during college years, then worked F/T with him in my 20’s and 30’s. Everything from renovating single family homes, building brand new townhouses, repairing existing apartments and turning old school buildings into large apartment buildings.
Recognitions: We have one of the highest market shares (20 – 25%) of any HomeTeam franchisee across the US.
We’ve performed over 3,000 home inspections since 2004.
We consistently get 9/10 and 10/10 post-inspection survey scores from our clients as well as real estate agents.
