I have been married over 41 years to my best friend Mary, proud father of 6 and grandfather of 5. I am also a past Scoutmaster of Boy Scout Troop 324 in Bourbonnais and very proud father of an Eagle Scout.
Since I started SLS Home Inspections as a Kankakee and Bourbonnais home inspector in 2007, I have used my 30+ years of lumber, contractor, and wholesale building materials sales and service experience to help home buyers understand the issues and explain the concerns of their new home. A Kankakee area real estate Home Inspection is an important part of any home sale. I service cities and towns in Kankakee, Will, Cook, Iroquois and Grundy counties including Bourbonnais, Bradley, Kankakee, Manteno, Momence, Watseka, Wilmington, Herscher, Peotone, Beecher, Frankfort, New Lenox, Richton Park, Matteson, Monee, Mokena, Coal City, Clifton, Chebanse, Braidwood, Chicago Heights, Country Club Hills, Crete, Dwight, Grant Park, Gilman, Homewood, Manhattan, Morris, Minooka, Orland Park, Saint Anne, Tinley Park and more.
I provide every client with same day delivery of a detailed narrative style inspection report (never a checklist style) with an easy to read summary page including digital photos. Every client also receives a free copy of “The Ultimate Home Book,” a 96 page guide to preserving the value of your home.
I will be your building consultant for life, when you stop calling with questions, I’ll stop answering them. If your first deal falls through for any reason, there is a $50 discount for a second inspection of a different home within 45 days after first inspection with the same Realtor.
Houses have been a keen interest of mine for many years. Buying and selling multiple houses in the Kankakee area has provided me valuable experience in the real estate transaction process. I know what the stress and concern that buyer’s have feels like. Extensive renovation and remodel projects have strengthened my knowledge of the way the interconnected systems of a house work. That experience, plus extensive education and training helps me explain these systems to our clients in a way they easily understand. It is my belief that a good home inspection benefits all involved parties starting from the day we schedule the inspection. My goal is to be the inspector of choice and provide future homeowners and realtors the best value with the highest quality home inspection in helping you make the biggest financial decision of your life.
