Home Inspector with SLS Home Inspections-Bradley Bourbonnais Kankakee Manteno 450.004175
Thankful for my Team.
     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 had done an inspection with for him and his young family a few years before. He was interested in becoming a home inspector, and wanted to see if I was interested in hiring him. I had attempted the same the thing in 2017 with another possible future inspector, but it did not work out at all. This was different. Luke had no intention of becoming a business owner and dealing with all the issues a business owner deals with on a daily basis. I needed a smart, pleasant, responsible and honest employee that I would trust with my most valuable asset. My reputation. I could not have found anyone better. I can actually make time for family events, seminars, Cubs games, and much more and know that my clients and agents are getting the same experience from Luke that they have been getting from me for the past 10 years.
     This past March, I met a woman again at a realtor event, several years after I did an inspection on her home. She was moving to Indiana, to be the director of the Kokomo Chamber of Commerce. I told her I wished I had someone like her to marketing events and warranty sales for me, part time. She knew the perfect person and after a couple meetings together, we worked out a 2 days a week schedule. Alexis is very smart with facebook, social media, video production and she's an actress so she's really good at what looks good on a video. This is our first team video.
Pretty big news about our announcement of a $100,000-one year structural warranty FREE with every inspection.

I don't mind crawl inside a crawl space or in the attic,  The modern 19 feet ceiling home tiled roof is too dangerous to walk on. Looking for little light weight type. They are hard to find. I do have one I use. He even helps to fix the crooked chimney. The termite inspector is a dangerous profession work with chemicals. Ragoon stares at you you want to get out of the way.
