How Can a Woman Inspect a Home?


Statistics show that women make better home inspectors than men. They communicate with the clients much easier and they do much better at report writing. Additionally, women are more observant of assets and items of concern. More and more women are entering the home inspection profession, and the record shows that they are well respected and offer quality service.

"The public and the real estate community are looking for fair, competent home inspectors who practice under a strict code of ethics. With my past experiences in real estate and building construction, as well as my training as a home inspector, I feel that I am more than qualified to offer area home buyers (and sellers) the quality inspection they seek on the biggest investment they will ever make—a home."
