CERTIFIED INSPECTOR New Mexico. I am the only Certified inspector in Eddy County.
I am the recipient of the Gerry Beaumont educational award for 2010, from INTERNACHI
Even though you are a certified inspector that will not make a competent inspector, unless you have the experience to go with it. I have inspected over 4,000 homes in the last 20 years. and 15 of those years as a certified energy auditor. I inspect all buildings. If it is built then I can inspect it. Since I have become a member of INTERNACHI I have noticed a big turnaround about the way I am perceived as far as the "qualified" inspector. This has opened up other fields of opportunities for me. Even though the name Desert Sun Inspections is fairly new, It's the experience that counts.
I have been working on buildings since I was big enough to hold a hammer. And have been owner of McKie construction in Michigan. With all the homes I've built, remodels, additions and retrofits about 4,000+ jobs total. I also would do roofing jobs for the John Q. public and through the LIHEAP programs. it's easy to see why I have the experience to " get the job done right" referring to inspections. Low income home owners I could help out through the local Community Action Agency. This was a big help for the owners that could not afford to upgrade their homes.

Testimonials that clients have provided me for the work I do.
After the flooring in my home was buckling up, I had a lot of different contractors over a 2 month period.look and without finding the problem. I had been through about 5 different companies, when I was told to call Clint McKie with desert Sun Inspections. He came out for the appointment and within 1 hour he had found the problem. The other companies looked at the areas where the problem was but didn't see anything. I was amazed Mr. McKie With Desert Sun Inspections, was able to find it and make repair recommendations. All in all problem solved.
Ms. Irene C. Carlsbad, N.M.
I finally found Clint McKie.
I have a mobile home, just by chance I had Mr. Mckie when overhearing him talk to a customer on the phone. I patiently waited till he was done then asked him to take a look at the home for roof leaks. He came out the next day and asked if the home ever had an energy audit, I said no what is that. He told me about how an audit could save me utility costs. I agreed to one, then after the audit he gave me a report with all the things needed to make the home energy efficeint. I agreed to an insulated roof and window and door work I also had some belly work done to the home. He stated to me if the new roof works like it is supposed to I would see a savings of 25-40%. I had kept track of the energy costs as I was told to do. After the first full year since the audit I had reduced my energy costs by 45%. after the costs of the work was deducted, I will be in the good as far as money ahead in 16 months. Far sooner than the 24-36 months Mr. McKie had told me. I called Mr. McKie and told him. He has since moved to Carlsbad N.M. and I wish he was still here. Finally met a contractor that was honest and sincere about what he doe's. And ha was upfront about everything. Thank's so much for the help. I would recommend Mr> McKie for anything. Thanks' again, Ms. J. M. st. joeseph MI.
Thanks to Clint McKie, We were able to find an inspctor for our inspections in Carlsbad New mexico. I found Mr. mcKie in the Active Rain network. I love useing him for all of our insurance needs.
Although I am not related to mr. Clint McKie our names are similar. I am Philip McKee and I called Clint at Desert Sun Home Inspections for a home inspection in Artesia, New Mexico. he did the inspection and I could not believe what was in the report. He did a very thorough job. I am not that easily impressed, but the report was indepth and superb. I am using Clint to do the post inspection for the home after the repairs have been completed.
I would reccomend Desert Sun Home Inspections to anyone who wants a quality report at a fair price.
Thank you for your hard work. Philip McKee Artesia, New Mexico 88210
If you are looking to buy a home in South East New Mexico, then look no further for a home inspection company that can get the job done at a very good price - call Clint Mckie Desert Sun Home Inspection!
Buying a home is a BIG deal. Every home is built differently. As the years go by, building codes change. How a property was maintained over the years makes a big difference.
If I needed heart surgery, I wouldn't call a chiropractor. If I needed my tooth pulled, I wouldn't call an automotive technician. But if I lived in South East New Mexico and needed a home inspection, I'd know who to call.
Clint has answers to all your questions and he's trustworthy, knowledgable, and honest. Always put safety first - hire the best!
I love how you explain things so wisely. I am not a Home Inspector. I trust the Home Inspector, a great one like you to explain things the right way and to share information that's believable and true.
I really enjoy what you have to say about home maintenance and how you do your job is to be applauded.
Time and time again, your posts show and tell, you educate and inform, you don't persuade people to buy, you respect the individual's intelligence and help the buyer make an informed decision. Without you and other great Home Inspectors like you, especially those that subscribe to ActiveRain, those foreclosure numbers wouldn't drop. On behalf of all buyers, I thank you.
