ABOUT: About

I’m a home inspector with more than 30 years of experience in the building industry. In addition to my training, I’ve passed the National Home Inspector Examination®, which is the only independent, psychometrically-valid home inspector test in the country. I’m proud of this accomplishment and believe it’s another example of my extensive knowledge and skill in the home inspection field.
 What is the National Home Inspector Examination®? The NHIE® is the original competency exam for the profession and is still one of the only ones that is psychometrically-valid. It shows a home inspector’s skill and knowledge in the field.
Who runs it? The Examination Board of Professional Home Inspectors, otherwise known as EBPHI. They are an independent, not-for-profit organization that develops and maintains exams for the real estate inspection profession and advocates for high standards for the profession. Why did you take the examination? I was ready for the next step in my career. The NHIE® tests a home inspector’s knowledge of conducting a thorough home inspection as well as tests our skills in client relations, communications and report writing.
Do you have proof that you’ve passed the examination? Yes. I have a score report from the testing center where I took the examination. I’m also proud to say I’m listed on the Inspector Database at
