Meet Our Team


Having been in business since 2001, Elite Home Inspections realizes what an important part of a real estate process we are. Our goal is to provide professional services while keeping in mind the complexity of the real estate transaction.

We are a mulit-inspector, nationally recognized company with NACHI (National Association of Certified Home Inspectors) and hold the highest certification available as "certified master inspector".  We are also licensed in North Carolina and annually inspect in excess of 700 homes.

We have a full time office staff available to you with regards to any questions you may have, to electronically send reports, and to schedule an inspection, as we realize home inspections can be time sensitive.

Our reports are clear, concise and are computer generated.  The report is usually available same day, via email, and is provided no later than the following business day, in the event that you are unable to attend the actual inspection.

Our inspection agreement and invoice are emailed to you for online completion, accepting credit/debit, in the event you may have to be absent at the time of the inspection or are an out of town client.  This offers you a quick, easy and secure way to complete the necessary documents, without delaying the scheduling of your inspection.   We accept personal checks as well, if you will be present and prefer to pay at the time of the inspection.


We have taken every measure to make this experience simple and flawless.

We would appreciate the opportunity to serve you and look forward to working with you in the very near future.
