Meet the Inspector

Jaffar has dedicated more than three decades to helping people with their home needs; first as a builder and now as a home inspector.  Jaffar’s educational background, as well as his extensive hands-on training, provide you with the skillset you will need on your side when you are reviewing your new home prior to proceeding with your purchase. This is when you need to know the home’s true condition and may also need assistance distinguishing the significant issues from those that are merely cosmetic or that do not require immediate attention.

When he’s not closely inspecting someone’s future house, compiling inspection reports, or answering questions from his valued customers, Jaffar can often be found walking his dog, fishing, cycling, or fly-fishing.
