PEACE OF MIND FOR YOUR HOME INVESTMENT
WHO AM I
I was initiated into the building industry making and installing windows.
To satisfy my passion for woodworking, I transitioned to framing houses.
I continued to work for general contractors remodeling homes, learning a variety of skills including roofing, siding, tile work, plumbing and electrical.
My fascination with how complex systems function led me to a public utility where I worked more than 20 years as a journey-level electrician.
My broad skill set, natural eye for detail and endless curiosity helped me to excel in each of these roles and now inspires my work as a home inspector.
Your home is an investment. Whether buying, selling or maintaining your home, get the experienced inspection you deserve with Reality Home Inspection.
Before You Commit to Your Home Purchase
Reality Home Inspection offers a comprehensive assessment to eliminate any unpleasant surprises. RHI will evaluate:
Plumbing & Electrical
Before a Little Issue
Becomes More Costly
Even if you’re not selling your home, it’s a good idea to have your home inspected periodically so that you can stay ahead of any potential maintenance needs. Reality Home Inspection will note any current or potential issues and suggest solutions.
Before You Sell Your Home
Get the best price for your home and eliminate repair surprises identified by the buyer’s inspector. A thorough, pre-sale evaluation by Reality Home Inspection allows you to make critical fixes in advance that will maximize value and expedite the sale of your home.
Before Your Home or Mechanical Warranties Expire
Costly details can sometimes be missed by even the best homebuilders. Before your warranties expire, Reality Home Inspection can catch any oversights and provide a list of needed repairs so that they can be addressed by the builder within the warranty period.
Get Peace of Mind
As a home owner, if only one or two specific issues in your home have you concerned, there is no need to pay for a full home inspection. RHI can focus on any system or area of your home and provide options for potential solutions.
Keeping Your Project Moving Forward
Remodeling projects can be overwhelming for the typical homeowner who doesn’t have experience with building contractors. Regular onsite visits by Reality Home Inspection can smooth communications, help keep your remodel project progressing and eliminate costly setbacks.
Kathleen is amazing - she has come out to our house twice - once to do an inspection of our ADU and once for our house. She is an expert, competent and communicates well. She is particularly skilled at assessing water damage issues. We knew there was a problem with our ADU but didn't know how to identify what it was. Kathleen gave us a thorough report which provided us direction as to what repair to prioritize and make.
Kathleen inspected two homes we were hoping to buy and we are exceptionally impressed with her in both cases. She was prompt and responsive, even coming out literally last minute to inspect a home we needed to put an offer on quickly. She was thorough and provided with clear, easy to understand reports that have been quite helpful to us as new home owners. She is very knowledgeable and easy to work with. We would highly recommend her to anyone needing a home inspection!
