Working with Brian was a fun learning experience. He was thorough with the inspection and took his time to explain everything that I didn't understand—highly recommended!

Bryan has always been very specific going above and beyond. His reports are very thorough. He also helps to save the client money with unnecessary inspections if need be.

In addition to the thorough inspection, I really appreciate the format of GreenLight's reports- they make it so easy to focus on the most important parts of the inspection!

We had a great experience with Brian. I put in a request in on Friday night and he was at the house on Saturday at 9:00 am. He was very knowledgeable and friendly. Overall the experience was fantastic!

My fiancé and I were very pleased with the work Brian did for us. Not only did he provide details on what he was doing throughout the whole inspection, he also offered vital tips that every homeowner should know. If you are needing an inspection, I can’t highly recommend him enough :)

Choosing the Best Houston Home Inspector

Searching for the Best Houston Home Inspector can be difficult.  

 

Buying and selling property is stressful as it is.  However, you should take the time to make sure you hire the best home inspector for you.  Hiring a Certified Master Inspector® assures you that you are hiring one of the best inspectors in Houston.  Not every inspector can earn the CMI® designation.  All home inspectors hold the same type of license.  All will produce an REI 7-6.  The differences emerge from there based on the inspectors experience, qualifications, report writing, photography and attention to detail.   I recommend you do your research before hiring an inspector.  Not all inspections or inspectors are equal.  Saving $100 or hiring someone who is “quick” may cost you tens of thousands in repairs or missed problems.

 

  • Read their sample reports.  Find someone whose reporting style you like and understand.
  • Check their availability.  With crazy short option periods you need someone quickly.
  • Do they answer the phone and respond to emails?  You can call me and I’m happy to talk with you about your inspection needs.  I answer my own phone.  No “call center” or “office staff.”  Those folks are nice, even professional, but they have never inspected a house in most cases.  I think you should talk with the inspector you are hiring to help you with your home purchase.  I answer my phone 7 days a week from 8am to 8pm.
  • Are they involved in the Real Estate industry teaching courses and writing articles to help Realtors®?  I teach classes twice a week on average and have taught thousands of Realtors and Home Inspectors about aspects of inspecting homes.  My classes are well received and registration is open to the public.  You do not have to be a Realtor or an Inspector if you want to spend an hour learning from me in class.
  • How much education do they have?  You can look up any agent, broker, or inspectors license and see their education history.  How often do they take courses and from whom?  Texas requires 16 hours per year.  That’s it.  I take hundreds of hours per year, attend conferences and association meetings because learning is a life long journey.  I feel the need to learn the latest trends and issues in construction in order to help my clients understand the home they are building or buying.
  • Check their review history and see what type of experience other clients had.  You will find a 5 star rating with glowing reviews written by past clients.
  • Do they play pricing games or have up-front, transparent pricing that is the same for everyone?  Some inspectors change their pricing based on how busy they are, who is calling, or how expensive the house is.  I believe in equality.  I treat all my clients the same regardless of who you are, where you are from, or what you do for a living.  We all need a place to live and deserve to understand the condition of the home we are buying.
  • Can you schedule online?  I synch my calendar with my scheduling tool.  You can schedule online at 1am in the morning if that’s when your offer is accepted and you are ready to move forward.  I’m still going to call and chat with you before the inspection, but you don’t have to wait for me to call you back to reserve an inspection time.
  • How many inspections a day do they do?  I typically only do one inspection.  When I work for you, your inspection is the most important thing I’m doing that day.  I don’t want to be rushed.  I want to have time to go through the house, in detail, to understand the home and its systems.  That helps me write a good report.  I also want to have time to spend with you teaching you about the house, discussing the major findings, showing you how things work at the house, answering your questions about the house.  I chose this profession so I could help others.  Spending time with my clients answering questions about the homes is the important part of inspecting homes.  Some companies brag about doing 2, 3, or more inspections per day.  They brag about sending “teams” to the inspection.  A team splits the inspection and one person does the outside and the other the inside.  Sure they collectively looked at everything, but did they relate their findings?  Probably not.  Faster is not better in home inspections.
  • Does the Inspector encourage you to come to the inspection?  They should.  I do.  I recommend coming about an hour before the inspection should be done.  However, I have some clients who want to be there for the whole inspection and that’s welcome as well.  It’s your home.  My role is to help you understand it so you can move forward with confidence.  Amazingly, some inspectors do not want you there and don’t want to talk to you.  They do not want you in the attic with them.  As long as it is safe to do so, you can follow me anywhere on the home.  After all, you are buying the house!  I think it’s much easier to show you where the air filters in the attic are and teach you about the furnace and water heater in the attic.
