He has a keen eye for detail and truly enjoys helping others ensure they are making the best decisions when it comes to their home.

Your Certified and Qualified

Professional Home Inspector



With over 40 years of buildingĀ homes, and working as a certified Master Electrician, I have experience that is hard to match. We know homes – inside and out.


I approach every home inspection as if I were inspecting for my own family. I work hard to be the most thorough home inspector in the greater Des Moines area.


I am an InterNACHI Certified Professional Home Inspector, as well as a certified Master Electrician. We view our license as a starting point, not the end-all.
