JMC Building Inspections is proud to announce our newest inspector, Lee Parsons. While many of you have already met Lee over the last few months, many of you have not yet had the pleasure. Read below to learn more about Lee, and if you have any questions, he can be reached directly by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Lee Parsons began his career as a home inspector in 2013. He is a member of the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI) and of Golden Gate ASHI (GGASHI), for which he is currently serving as the Education Committee Co-Chair. After attending the ASHI School and passing the National Home Inspection Examination, Lee went to work for a large national company, performing inspections throughout the Bay Area. But when asked to join JMC, it was an easy decision to go with a local company that values quality and thoroughness.
Lee grew up in Southern California and was drawn north to attend UC Santa Cruz, where he studied literature and architectural history. After graduation, he moved to San Francisco and worked in various jobs– in a wood shop building furniture; in bookstores; and on house painting crews– before returning to school to pursue a graduate degree in English at the University of Washington. After graduate school, he returned to the Bay Area and worked in university student services, first at Golden Gate University and then at UC Berkeley.
Lee and his wife, painter Ginny Parsons, live in Alameda where they own a 1912 California bungalow (or it owns them), and where they have raised two children (the oldest is now attending UC Santa Cruz). When not inspecting homes or working on his own, Lee will be found racing sailboats on the Bay or cycling on the roads throughout the Bay Area.
