Peter Doane, Inspector/ Owner -           WSLHI# 232 SPI #69169 

What you should expect from your next home inspector.  Based in the beautiful south sound area of Washington State.  Realty Check Inspection Service is owned and operated by Peter Doane.  Over the past 10+ years, Peter has been calming nerves and providing his clientele with an invaluable service ~ peace of mind with a fully inspected home.

Why Hire Me?  I'm a seasoned and experienced home inspector with close to 4,000 inspections under my belt.  A few years ago, Washington State legislation passed a law requiring all current and future home inspectors to be licensed after Sept. 1st 2009.  Since then, various college, trade schools and home inspection franchisors alike have been cranking out brand new home inspectors.  What this means to you is that there are a ton of "us" out there to hire, so who do you choose??  First, simply interview them on the phone.  Secondly, make sure they are free of any group associations.  (More about this below).  Most of all, make sure you hire a home inspector that has several years of real home inspection experience.  Choosing by price alone is never your best bet nor should it be your only question or the deciding factor for hire.  Remember... Integrity, Inspection Experience, Then price.

What I'm Not -  Realty Check is not a large multi-inspector company or franchisee whom typically have to pack multiple home inspections in per day or upsell you into "add-on" services to keep their employee payrolls and franchise fee's met.  There is a better way.  With Peter as your home inspector, he doesn't have to watch the clock, or hurry through portions of your inspection to insure he makes it to the next scheduled appointment.  Peter dedicates how ever long it takes for every one of his clients.  This insures you receive a complete and full inspection and nothing is left...  undocumented!

 Integrity & Fidelity -  Exceptional Expectations.  From day one, Peter has only worked with & accepts referrals from ethical RE industry professionals, Agents or other 3rd parties!  I'm proud to remain and probably am the only local home inspector that maintains a 100% zero RE office or RE business group, associate, affiliation, or familiarity.  This simply means I don't join RE office or RE business associate relationship groups.  You'd be surprised how many have this business familiarity [close association] relationship.  Statutory Authority: WAC 308-408C-020(2) Requires home inspectors to give you the client written notification of any business or familial relationship or association prior to hire.  I urge you to find out before you select who you'll entrust to inspect your home.  (This would include: Investment clubs, MLSA or other RE associate groups, Business referral groups, etc.)  Or you can just hire Realty Check, where you are already assured you will get a 100% unbiased inspection with zero temptation to water down or leave out (eek) conditions to insure future RE Agent or other "preferred provider" relationship referrals.   

Accommodating -  Throughout the years, Peter has extended into a 75 mile (no extra charge) service radius as various other past Clients & Agents from near and afar have come to appreciate Peter's tough thoroughness and continually recommend him with fidelity to their friends, family & clients on a regular basis.
