mold and air quality testing: Your Thoughts on my New Checklist? - 12/15/19 06:31 AM
  Thanks to Barb Todaro's post today, I thought I would ask the AR group what your thoughts are on this comparison sheet between my company and my competition. This will be available for agents to hand to their clients when they start their search for an inspection company.      The typical practice is for the buyer agent (BA) to always give the client 3 names of inspectors to choose from. The logic is that if something goes wrong with the inspection, the BA liability will be reduced because the BA gave them 3 names, and it was the clients decision … (3 comments)

mold and air quality testing: Test Burn for the Fire Department?? - 12/02/19 04:42 PM
Test burn for the fire department?      One of the first inspections I ever did was about 10 years ago. A woman in a very small town south of my home called to tell me the village wanted to condemn her home she was trying to sell. It was vacant but she had a potential buyer, and he would be there to walk around during the inspection with me. She wanted to prove to the village the home should not be condemned.      The first thing I noticed when I pulled up to the house was there were no … (12 comments)

mold and air quality testing: What a Difference 7 Years Makes - 11/15/19 12:50 PM
What a difference 7 years makes. I am so grateful and thankful because for the past seven years, I have been witness to these amazing events in my family's history. Seven years ago in December, 2012 I had a heart attack and was shocked back to life twice on the ER table. This is what I almost missed.          In that time, I've seen my youngest daughter graduate with her nursing degree from Olivet Nazarene University. She now works in her dream job the OR department of Riverside Medical Center. She is one of the most requested nurses … (2 comments)

mold and air quality testing: In My Past Life I..... - 10/26/19 05:27 AM
     In my past life I learned early on many the rights and wrongs of a home. I learned to have an eye for details. My Dad is an architect, so I was always wanting to be an architect. There was just one problem, I was not really good at math, or algebra. I worked at my dad's office as the copy machine boy for a few years putting spec books together and making blueprints. I remember taking off in the station wagon really early on Sunday mornings with my dad and we would just drive around town looking at … (9 comments)

mold and air quality testing: 10 Years and Still Growing - 07/18/19 07:25 AM
 10 years and still growing. Hard to believe it's nearly ten years in business as a full time home inspector. But I've enjoyed every minute and can't wait for what's to come. 
2009- At this time in 2009 I was working for another company in the building materials industry and had completed less than 20 inspections, total in 2 1/2 years. I was frustrated as a territory manage for that company and requested a demotion to prevent my brain from exploding from the ignorance of dealing with stupid sales and regional managers. The extra time I was going to have by not working … (5 comments)

mold and air quality testing: This Might be Our Big Break - 06/08/19 06:12 AM
     This might be our big break. That's the conversation my wife and I were having after an odd phone call in the fall of 2000. We were friends with a family and their children attending the same school as our kids and one of their daughters also went to the same ballet classes as our oldest daughter. We didn't see them much outside of school and ballet, as the father was disabled. They lived in the formerly fancy pants part of town called Briarcliff. The new hot spot for higher end houses was outside of town about 2 miles … (9 comments)

mold and air quality testing: Don't be Like the South Pole - 03/24/19 06:52 AM
                                                            
     I was born Booker T. Smartwell, but my friends all call me Book Smart. One of them painted this picture of me in art class. Funny thing is, I don't smoke and I hate books. In fact, I can barely read past the third grade level. Any big words you find in my story you are reading are because I use a book that has a whole bunch of big … (5 comments)

mold and air quality testing: Why is it my Fault? - 02/28/19 07:54 PM
Why is it my Fault? I ask myself this question every once in a while after a home inspection has "caused" the deal to go south. The story is similar in every case this has happened. Buyer calls and schedules their home inspection. Buyer says it's their first home. Buyer shows up at the home inspection. Buyer gets the report for the home inspection. Buyer agent that was NOT at the inspection, didn't see me explaining to the buyers that most of the items were small but easy to repair items is furious because I must have said something to the … (4 comments)

mold and air quality testing: Winter is not Coming, It's here and it's Mad - 01/28/19 07:56 AM
 Winter is not Coming, It's here and it's Mad
Old Man Winter is here and he's here with a vengeance. It's Furnace Time! Winter was pretty rough in Bourbonnais, Illinois last year and it's even worse this year. There are a few things that are worse than a furnace acting up in the middle of the winter, but for the life of me I can't think of any right now. Your furnace needs an annual checkup and if you put it off until now, you're asking for trouble. Waiting until the snow flies means you waited about 3 months too long. Now if you're depending on something like … (1 comments)

mold and air quality testing: Blessed to Have Him - 01/09/19 09:31 AM
Blessed to Have Him      I have been inspecting homes for new home buyers for about 8 years full time. I was doing inspections part time for a few years before that. I was always a one man shop until July of 2018. I have averaged 2 inspections a day Monday through Friday for the past 2 years. Over 500 inspections each year is enough to wear anyone out. All I was doing is inspecting and writing reports, sometimes working 18 hours a day from 5AM until midnight .        I was approached by a young man who I … (2 comments)

mold and air quality testing: Best Christmas Ever December 25, 2012 - 12/13/17 04:40 AM
My favorite Christmas memory is the first Christmas after my heart attack. What were you doing 5 years ago on December 10? Exactly 5 years ago? Remember? I do. At 1:30 am I was jarred awake by a crushing pain in my chest, sweating like a pig, and realized I was having a heart attack. Approximately 15 minutes later in the ER at Riverside my heart went into V-tach, or ventricular tachycardia, or something that is spelled close to that. I was technically dead for 40 seconds, wasshocked back to the real world, was rushed into the cath lab at Riverside … (15 comments)
