OpenHouse Inspections

More about John

When you engage OpenHouse you are hiring Me.
I will be your inspector and will inspect for you as I would for my own daughter or son, with vigilance, attention to detail and perspective.

Hard-earned credentials include the highest accreditation from The American Society of Home Inspectors, under whose founder I began my training so many years ago. I am also licensed in The State of Connecticut, Rated “A” by Angie’s List, “A+” with the Better Business Bureau, and flawless by the Department of Consumer Protection. Through more than 4,000 inspections I have never been sued for any reason, but I am a responsible man, so however unlikely may be the need I am still well-insured for any such event.

An Army Brat born in Alaska, then a long-time New Englander, I followed my heart to Lake Minnetonka from the seaside town of Westport, Connecticut. There I lived, raised two children, built or rebuilt five houses, and contributed to the community in various ways for nearly 35 years. Now, in Spring Park on the shores of Lake Minnetonka, I have hung my shingle anew, eager to duplicate the success I had back East in this wonderful part of our country.

A graduate of Wesleyan University, a filmmaker and creative director for two decades, and with an accrued background in architecture, construction & renovation, I saw the chance twenty years ago to harness my education, experience, and communication skills to set myself apart in this fascinating field of Home Inspection. It has been a most rewarding path and will continue to be each time I am given the opportunity to serve demanding and discerning clients.

On the avocation side of life, I am an avid tennis player and love to spend time on a golf course, although golf courses do not appear to have reciprocal affection for me. Still, the tracks here are lovely, and, all it takes is one good shot to keep me coming back.

Having traded salt-water for fresh, I get great pleasure from boating, water skiing, wakeboarding, and, naturally, trying to figure out how to hook and land a Muskie. Heaven helps me when I am introduced to Ice Fishing. The rail-trails here are terrific, but my quads are paying a price for that. And Sporting Clays! And Pond Hockey! So much to do…so little time, right?
