John has always had a passion for homes. When he was 14, John tore down a wall to open up two rooms. John's love of design/build projects has flourished in architecture, landscaping, and woodworking. John enjoys adventure sports and discovering the natural world.  John currently owns his third home with his wife, son, and host of cuddly furmongers.  


And now, as a Professional Home Inspector, John looks forward to performing a thorough home inspection on your Upstate NY home.

Stephen loves to fix things. For ten years he worked in industrial laundries and CNC Grinding shops, and many of his days were spent repairing enormous commercial machines. He now enjoys using that extensive HVAC, plumbing and electrical experience to help friends fix things around their homes. When he is not at work, Stephen can be found at his recently purchased fixer upper, happily toiling alongside his partner Rachel on one of their many projects. His hobbies include basketball, riding and restoring motorcycles, hiking, camping, playing music, and DJing.
