Mike’s childhood home, located in South Weymouth, MA, was built in 1697. The building was originally constructed as a mill with a mill pond located where the driveway and the neighboring yard now stand. After serving as a witches’ coven for a few years after the mill was shut down, the building was eventually turned into a homestead.
Having grown up in one of the oldest homes in Massachusetts, Mike developed a deep understanding and respect for old homes. He truly appreciates the craftsmanship that wen into building older homes.
His decision and his ultimate motivation to become a home inspector first took hold of him when he purchased his first home back in 2003. He was fascinated by the home inspection process and decided that inspecting homes was a career that he could no doubt engage in for the rest of his life.
Mike apprenticed for two years with a master homebuilder prior to gaining his home inspection license. It wasn’t easy. He had to drop everything with his full time executive job and run out to meet the inspector at a moment’s notice. But the experience prepared him for his future career and solidified with him that home inspecting was what he was truly meant to be doing.
Since then, he has inspected thousands of homes throughout his career.
He wholeheartedly enjoys the inspection business, and often says that he doesn’t wake up dreading having to go to work. He looks forward to what the next inspection will bring.
What’s the old saying? Love what you do, and you will never work another day in your life…
He is passionate about helping people and provides thorough home inspections and detailed and accurate, easy-to-read inspection reports that are designed to help people make informed decisions in regards to the largest purchase that most people will ever make in their lifetimes.
He knew he had found his calling in life when he discovered the field of home inspections.
He lives in Weare, New Hampshire up on a mountain with his wife Michelle and their 5 rescue dogs.
His hobbies include writing, mountain biking, military history, as well as history in general, and anything Sci-Fi / Horror related.
