Value in Experiential Knowledge
Before he received his license as a home inspector, John helped people with homes in a different way—first as a real estate agent, and later as a licensed contractor. He learned a great deal about residential structures and their integrated systems while working as a contractor, participating in a variety of construction projects. John also spent time managing and maintaining the condition of rental properties. As a real estate agent, John experienced a different side of the homebuying equation, learning to balance the needs and expectations of all parties involved.
