Do you know about Certification? It will add $15,000 value to a $300,000 home

Pearl Certification (http://PearlCertification.com) is a new company based in the east that offers certification of homes for home sellers. They have data that shows that after a seller pays them $695 for their certification the home value goes up an average of 5% in most markets. Pearl is now in Phoenix and adding Colorado this month – January 2020. 

You do not need to wait for them to enter California. I am offering the same certification here now. 

            

I am a Certified Master Home Inspector who got my property inspector license in Nevada in 2004.  You might know that California does not license inspectors. Nevada had a rigorous procedure one must follow to be licensed. First, I was required to work with a Nevada Certified Master Inspector on 25 home inspections and have that inspector sign off proof of my attending those inspections. Then I was required to get trained by one of the schools approved by the Nevada state licensing board. I then had to take the Nevada state licensing board test in a test facility in Las Vegas and pass it. I completed all these requirements in July of 2004 and was officially licensed by Nevada.  I started inspections there but decided to concentrate on building my business in Palos Verdes where I lived at the time. I now live in beautiful Temecula – the wine country paradise of Southern California. I regularly travel to Palos Verdes and Manhattan Beach to visit family with my wife Darlene, whom I married in 1974. We have two very successful children, Ryan and Kimberley.

I have been a member of the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (iNACHI) for over a decade.
