Setting the Standard in San Antonio Home Inspections

Meet Your Inspector

Kevin’s professional interest in Real Estate began in 2001 serving as a Certified Real Estate Appraiser and as a real estate investor mostly in single family rental properties. As an investor, he learned the importance and financial impact of recognizing and accounting for home deficiencies that exist “beneath the surface”. After one Real Estate Inspection course at Champions School of Real Estate, he decided to enroll in the full Inspector curriculum to become licensed to provide professional guidance to other investors.

Kevin became a licensed home inspector in 2019. He is currently a member of InterNachi, (The International Association of Certified Home Inspectors) and has performed countless fee-paid structural home inspections. He is also an active member of several local investment groups and has himself invested in several single and multi-family properties.

Kevin earned his BS Degree in Civil Engineering from Texas A&M University in 1997.

When not inspecting homes, Kevin enjoys finding and working on his own real estate investments, spending time with his family, and playing his guitar (with limited skills!). He consistently completes continuing education classes well beyond the state required minimum. He is also an avid unicyclist. He has ridden his unicycle in several “fun runs”, including a half marathon!

Premium Inspection Services

Residential Home Inspections

If you're planning on buying or selling a home, then hiring a home inspector could save you thousands of dollars. It will also help you understand the property you want to buy and the possible defects. For sellers, it can provide insight into a home to know what to expect and can make repairs before listing a property.

Prelisting Inspections

Some homeowners want to make repairs to their house before they put it on the market and will make repairs using their inspection report as a baseline reference. Please understand that most buyers will still want to perform their own inspection even if the seller has already had an inspection done.

Warranty Inspections

Most builders offer a one-year warranty on a new home. We perform a full home inspection before the builder’s warranty expires. Just because your home is new, doesn’t necessarily mean it is defect-free. At your 11-month mark, take advantage of your last chance to take advantage of your warranty!

9-Point Foundation Elevations

A 9-point foundation elevation inspection is a comprehensive assessment of a property's foundation. This inspection evaluates nine specific points of the foundation to determine if there are any issues with settling, shifting, or structural damage. A thorough foundation inspection is essential for identifying any potential issues that could lead to costly repairs down the line.

Investor Friendly Inspections

Investor-friendly home inspections are a crucial part of the due diligence process when purchasing an investment property. These inspections provide detailed information about the condition of the property, including any defects or potential issues that could affect its value. By obtaining an investor-friendly home inspection, you can make an informed decision about whether to proceed with the purchase, negotiate the price, or request repairs before closing.
