I’m YOUR Home Inspector – NOT Your Realtor’s

My Company is typically not referred and is even disliked by the majority of real estate agents and I can tell you why: it’s change. Most people dislike change, but I’m are here to tell you that the home inspection industry is changing. It’s evolving to be more thorough and provide MORE information than ever before. 

Today’s informed and technologically inclined home buyer has driven this shift in the industry. They know there are tools and resources available to give them MORE information, and they are not afraid to seek it out. 

As the first to bring this in-depth inspection method to Northeast Tennessee, it has been met with opposition from real estate agents in the area. Opposition such as not including my company on an agency’s or realtor’s “preferred” list, trying to prevent me from inspecting properties altogether, and so on. I use this criticism as fuel and simply turn it into MORE

As the whole of the industry continues to shift over time, this style of inspecting will eventually become the norm. In the meantime, you, the home buyer, have an in-depth thorough option available to you. I report on MORE and have the experience, knowledge, toolset, and tech to do so, striving to adapt the newest assets as they become available in the business.

I clearly have the determination to continue doing what is in the best interests of my clients, no matter the pessimism I meet along the way from my peers. Offering MORE is what I do at Professional Home Inspections, one inspection at a time, every time.

Ethics, Integrity, & Morals

Most likely you found this website from a Google Search or a friend or family member’s recommendation, as the majority of Realtor’s do not refer my company to their clients, as they feel I produce too long of a home inspection report and give too much information. I exceed the minimum reporting requirements mandated by the State of TN whenever and wherever possible to give you as much information about the home that I can. Here’s a link to a blog post that discusses this further. The People’s Home Inspector

A note from KC Bartley, Owner – Professional Home Inspections LLC

A Home Inspection is the most important and crucial step during a Real Estate transaction, as the Home Inspection Report will give you the tools to understand the condition of the home and its items and components. This information will allow you to make an educated decision, and give you the ability to renegotiate for repairs of items, or on price. 

I’m a Tennessee State Licensed Home Inspector and have earned the Certified Master Inspector designation from InterNACHI, the ACI (ASHI Certified Inspector) designation from ASHI, as well as being certified by the Home Inspectors of Tennessee Association as a Master Inspector. With over 23 years of experience in the Home Inspection and residential construction industries, I have the knowledge to provide you with a wealth of information relating to the home. Even with my experience, I’m constantly studying any building/construction related content I can get my hands on, and traveling to learn from the leading building professionals in the country. Being a Home Inspector isn’t just a job to me, it’s who I am. But, that’s not saying enough…Home Inspections are my PASSION! As my wife could attest, I literally live and breathe the Home Inspection industry. 

I perform Home Inspections as if I’m going to move my daughters and wife into that home the next day. I report on ANY visible safety issues, installation deficiencies, areas of moisture intrusion, and/or any other piece of information that may assist you in making an educated decision. MY REPORTS ARE COMPLETELY UNBIASED, I HAVE NO AFFILIATION WITH ANY OTHER PARTIES TO YOUR TRANSACTION. MY ONLY OBLIGATION IS TO HELP YOU UNDERSTAND THE CONDITION OF THE HOME. Colossians 3:23

I encourage you to review my sample home inspection reports. There is no better indicator as to a Home Inspectors thoroughness than the produced Home Inspection Report.

Also feel free to read reviews that have been left about my services found on Google, on Facebook, and on this website. Research other Home Inspectors in the area as well, and make the decision you feel is best for you.

If I can help you in any way, feel free to reach out to me. Lastly, thank you for considering me and my company for your Home Inspection. If you choose me, I can assure you, you’ll get my very best.
