John has been my mentor since I started doing inspections in  2007, and his wit and wisdom have been instrumental in my development as an inspector.  As many of you know, I took over ownership of the company in January of 2015, and his business acumen has been invaluable to making this transition smooth and successful.

John will be enjoying his semi-retirement by doing the things he loves, such as hiking, Scottish Dancing, and playing with his grandkids, but he would still be happy to share his knowledge and wisdom with you by performing an hourly consultation!
